by Chris Cummings

Welcome back to another edition of “Which is Better” here on Nerdly. I tend to, in past articles focus on specific movies or series’ or television shows, but I thought, for the pure hell of it, to pit two big streaming services against each other and decide which is the better of the two. Now, […]

‘Sex Education: Season 2′ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

‘Prank Encounters’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

The prank show format has seen a decline in recent years but I can remember as a child watching the likes of Prank Patrol where they would prank unexpected members of the public which were hilarious and, to be honest, one of the TV highlights of my childhood.
