‘Public Enemy: The Complete Season’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When you’ve seen enough Nordic Noir style series you tend to see certain formulas to the stories. Public Enemy is one that definitely feels familiar, but instead of familiarity breeding content, this time it offers an engrossing experience. When federal police investigator Chloe Muller (Stéphanie Blanchoud) is given the task to protect Guy Beranger (Angelo […]

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Rory Kinnear, Steve Delaney, Bronagh Gallagher, David Plimmer, Andy Linden  | Created by Steve Delaney When I’ve seen Count Arthur Strong on television, I do tend to watch the odd episode, but I never seem to have the time to stick with it.

‘Game of Thrones 7×01: Dragonstone’ Review

by Steven Riley

It may be the middle of July, but for Game of Thrones winter is most definitely coming… While past season openers are notoriously take a while to thaw out before a generally explosive ending (literally with that season six finale), the laying of the Westeros war table sees the show runners turn the heat up […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×10′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of Twin Peaks you’ll no doubt have already thanked David Lynch and Mark Frost in your head for bringing us season 3. At episode 10 we are now officially down the rabbit hole, but if you were looking for much progress in the main story you won’t get it here. […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×09′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After episode 8 of Twin Peaks, this latest one had a lot to live up to. While it may not be as artistic and mind-blowing, for Twin Peaks fans, many boxes were ticked as to what is a good episode of the returning show. The main thing to realise of course is that season 3 […]

‘GLOW: Season 1′ Review (Netflix)

by Phil Wheat

As a wrestling fan I was aware of the GLOW promotion thanks to the fact that, during my college years, I used to frequent a weekly flea market, snagging old VHS tapes like they were going out of fashion (little did I know that by the end of my Uni years they WOULD be out […]

‘Doctor Who 10×12: The Doctor Falls’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

So, the season finale is here and we all knew that Doctor Who was going to die. It isn’t a surprise, Peter Capaldi is leaving, as is Steven Moffat. With just the Christmas episode to go before Doctor Who returns in an all new form, does this episode live up to all expectations? Oh, and […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×08′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Going into this episode of Twin Peaks, there was a buzz around it. Something special was going to happen, and of course fans were excited. Would this mean that Agent Cooper (Kyle Maclachlan) was finally going to wake up in the body of Dougie? Was Sherilyn Fenn finally returning as Audrey Horne? Welcome to Twin […]

‘Doctor Who 10×11: World Enough and Time’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When you know that Missy (Michelle Gomez) and The Master (John Simm) are going to meet in this episode (no, not a spoiler) you know that there is going to be some timey wimey shenanigans going on. In this episode of Doctor Who that is exactly what we get, with an equal measure of déjà […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×06′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is still stuck in Dougie, that doesn’t mean that Twin Peaks can’t push a few buttons for fans. This week has a definite feel of Fire Walk with Me as well as a very interesting introduction to a returning, but until now unseen character that fans have been dying to […]

‘Doctor Who 10×09: Empress of Mars’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Doctor Who has been on quite a roll this season, and there was bound to be an episode that came along that was a bit of a filler. Empress of Mars feels to be that filler episode, and what we are given is a story that is simple, okay. After seeing an unexpected message on […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×05′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While it is so good to have Twin Peaks back, it is even better to have a weekly dose of David Lynch directed goodness. This week’s episode may test people’s patience if they are looking for answers, but for those who want a good old slice of Twin Peaks, this is exactly what they get. […]

‘Doctor Who 10×08: The Lie of the Land’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When politics inspires a show like Doctor Who, we tend to see the extremes of what can happen. This week’s episode handles the nature of fascism, and that ever popular topic of fake news. What could go wrong? With Earth now under the control of The Monks, Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) go […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×04′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

This episode is the one we’ve been waiting for, with Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) coming face to face with Gordon Cole (David Lynch) and Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer). Typically for Twin Peaks though, nothing is as it seems. With Agent Cooper playing happy families as Dougie Jones, the other “Coop” faces his old boss and Albert. […]
