  • Filling the Marvel Netflix Vacuum

    The final nail has been struck. The last two remaining Marvel Netflix shows have not been renewed. We’ve still got Jessica Jones season 3 to come. Hopefully it’ll live up to the wonderful first season, but it will not receive a fourth season irrelevant of how well it does....
  • The Dark Side of Alchemy

    Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood caught me out big time. I really wasn’t prepared for what would happen in Episode 4. I don’t think I could have been less prepared for it if I’m honest. “What happened?” you ask; I’m not going to tell you as that would spoil it. What...
  • What Star Trek: Discovery Got Right and Wrong in its Season 2 Premiere

  • My Hopes For Gotham’s Final Season

    After 88 episodes and 4 seasons I still don’t know if Gotham is a good show. It’s often poorly plotted, convoluted and tonally unbalanced and yet at times it feels totally self-aware of its own craziness and comes out the other side bearing gifts of genuine drama and comedy,...
  • Is The Animated Comedy Series ‘Lower Decks’ A Good Idea For Star Trek?

    It seems like CBS TV studios president David Stapf wasn’t joking when he said, “There should be Star Trek something on all the time”. In the same year Short Treks and the as-of-yet untitled Picard show were announced, and rumours of a Section 31 show surfaced, we now have...
