‘Inspector DeLuca: The Series’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Television movies based on the time of the world wars always create interest, but in countries like the UK we normally focus on the side we relate to the most, the allies.  Inspector De Luca is an Italian series that gained interest through the popularity of European detective shows, but where most go for the […]

WWE RAW Review & Results (31.03.14)

by Chris Cummings

Here we are then, less than a week from WWE’s biggest annual event, WrestleMania 30. This is the go-home RAW, an episode in which, most years, all matches for the big event are finalised, feuds are heated up ready for the pay per view, and fans are left with a desire to see the roster […]

One of my favourite Syfy shows ever, Warehouse 13, is returning to our screens in April (well at least in the US) and in anticipation of the fifth season debut Syfy have released a trailer for the new season, taking a look at what’s in store for fans in the shows fifth and [sadly] final […]

WWE RAW Results & Review (24.03.14)

by Chris Cummings

We are less than two weeks away from WrestleMania 30 and so the television shows that WWE promotes between now and then are the most important “go-home” shows of the year for the company. The final “big sell” before the big show itself. Tonight, RAW is live from Brooklyn, New York. In the next two […]

The Americans 2×04 – “A Little Night Music” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Annet Mahendru, Holly Taylor | Created by Joseph Weisberg “We’re screwed” – Stan Beeman. Never has there been a more ominous portent uttered by anyone on any show than this declaritive statement which, rather fittingly comes at the end of a big confession scene in which one man holding a deep personal secret […]

WWE RAW Results & Review (17.03.14)

by Chris Cummings

We continue on the Road to WrestleMania XXX and are less than three weeks away. Recent developments in the storylines leading to the event have made it all the more appealing and opened up some intriguing questions as we approach the thirtieth “showcase of the immortals” in New Orleans. Tonight, we are live from San […]

‘Salamander: The Complete Season One’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Nordic Noir is popular in the United Kingdom right now and we tend to get hooked whenever we are given a new morsel to chew on.  One thing we’d be stupid to not realise though is that Europe has much more to offer than just that certain brand of Noir.  Salamander: The Complete Season One […]

The Americans 2×03 – “The Walk-In” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Annet Mahendru, Holly Taylor | Created by Joseph Weisberg We’re now sixteen episodes into The Americans and the one thing that we’ve never been privy to is Philip and Elizabeth’s life before we met them proper. We’ve had bits and pieces like Elizabeth’s horrifying rape or Philip’s past life with the agent but its been […]

Hannibal 2×02 – “Sakizuke” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller Sakizuke: an appetizer similar to the French amuse-bouche. Not so long ago, (okay, a REALLY long time ago) a friend and I had an argument about the actors who have played Hannibal Lector. I was staunchly opposed to his declarations that […]

Tales from the Crypt 2×08 – “For Cryin’ Out Loud” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original air date – May 22nd, 1990 Let me tell you when I knew I’d be covering this episode next, I got very happy. It makes all the other episodes that I’d gone through totally worth it, because this is where the turning point truly hits for me. Everything about this episode works for me, […]

The Americans 2×02 – “Cardinal” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Annet Mahendru, Holly Taylor | Created by Joseph Weisberg ‘Cardinal’ serves as a part two to last week’s premiere and answers a whole lot that was left over from last week, but leaves just a little bit to savor in the coming weeks, like the little teensy slip of the word cardinal at […]

Hannibal 2×01 – “Kaiseki” [Season Premiere] Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller Kaiseki: a type of multicourse Japanese meal offering small dishes; a Japanese tasting menu Wisely, Bryan Fuller, who co-scripted the premiere, leaves Will in lockup as the season begins (forced to be picked apart by antagonistic Frederick Chilton), and truly haunted […]

‘Grimm: Below the Surface’ Book Review

by Paul Metcalf

Books that look behind the scenes of television shows can differ in how much depth they go into.  In the superficial sense some can just give a description of the characters, give episode synopsis and choose a few episodes to look at.  Grimm: Below the Surface is a surprisingly in-depth look at the show that […]

The Americans 2×01 – “Comrades” [Season Premiere] Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati | Created by Joseph Weisberg Let’s begin at the end here. It makes the most sense to do so. Or as close to the end as we can get. We know that espionage isn’t exactly a sunshine and lollipops kind of business. It’s abhorrent behavior, […]

Bates Motel 2×01 – “Gone But No Forgotten” Review

by Nathan Smith

— SPOILERS LIE BEYOND HERE — We all know how the saga of Norman Bates is going to end. It’s something that’s been so ingrained in the pop culture lexicon for many years that I was actually shocked when discussing Bates Motel, with others, that they didn’t actually know how this was all going to […]

22nd Feb2014

Tales from the Crypt 2×07 – “The Sacrifice” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original airdate – May 15th, 1990 There’s a reason I don’t usually remember the Tales From the Crypt episodes with no supernatural leanings – it’s because they’re bland. Look, every episode, you’ll find a single certainty: there’s going to be someone getting killed or someone deserving of some major cosmic comeuppance, and then they get […]
