  • Revisiting Star Trek Discovery Season 1 Part 1

    How does the show stand up when viewed in its entirety, already knowing the twists and turns? ...
  • 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...
  • My Hopes For Agents of SHIELD Season 6

    Agents of SHIELD is a show that has changed and grown dramatically since its debut in September of 2013. From its premiere it’s gone from strength to strength; the opening ten episodes of this past season might rival the opening ten episodes of season 3 as my favourite run...
  • Westworld Has A Death Problem

    Death is the business of Westworld.

Survival and immortality are key parts of Westworld but moving...

  • Hopes, Predictions and Questions for Picard’s Return to Star Trek

    Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s epic adventure across the galaxy came to an end 16 years ago with the release of Star Trek: Nemesis, one of my least favourite Star Trek films. Based on its own merits the film’s not actually all that bad (okay, it is pretty rubbish) but it’s regarded as...
  • Predicting What Will Happen in The Clone Wars Revival

    Among the bevy of news and trailers released at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the announcement that Star Wars: The Clone Wars is back from the dead may have been the biggest, and definitely the most surprising. Years after the show was cancelled, with the Lucasfilm animation team seemingly...
  • My Hopes for Westworld Season 3

    Now that Westworld’s second season has aired and we’ve all had time to at least try to get our heads around the non-linear storytelling, unexpected twists and mind-boggling revelations, it’s time to be inpatient and look ahead to the future of sci-fi western series. With a third season already...
