  • How Will Better Call Saul End?

    Better Call Saul ended its penultimate season with the best run of episodes in the show’s history. While the prequel/spin-off to Breaking Bad was good from the outset, each progressive season has improved on the last, and its fifth was some of the best television in years. The series...
  • Why ‘Chapter 2: The Child’ is The Mandalorian’s Best Episode

    In the lead-up to The Mandalorian airing, we were expecting a very different show than the one we received. Star Wars’ first foray into live-action television was presumed to be a wholly serialised affair, but the structure of the season turned out to be anything but. The first three...
  • How Killing Eve Season 3 Fixed Season 2’s Biggest Misstep

    Killing Eve’s third season came to a close last week and the latest eight episodes have split opinion quite dramatically. While the show is nowhere near the quality of its first, Phoebe Waller-Bridge written season, I found the third season to be a big step up from the second....

    Each week I’m revisiting an episode of Game of Thrones’ infamous final season exactly one year after it first aired. Today, I’m looking at the most controversial episode of the entire series: ‘The Bells’. Game of Thrones is known for its penultimate episodes. The ninth episode of every season...
  • Game of Thrones Season 8 One Year Later: ‘The Last of the Starks’

    For six weeks I’m reviewing every episode of Game of Thrones’ final season exactly one year after they originally aired. Today I’m revisiting the fourth episode of the notorious season, ‘The Last of the Starks’. ‘The Last of the Starks’ is the worst episode of Game of Thrones. It...
  • Game of Thrones Season 8 One Year Later: ‘The Long Night’

    Exactly one year ago, the conversation surrounding Game of Thrones changed dramatically with the airing of ‘The Long Night’. For the previous couple of seasons there was some slight negativity towards the fantasy series as it began to wrap up its epic narrative, but the third of six episodes...
