  • Watchmen’s Missing Episode: What the Series Left Unexplored

    “Nothing ever ends”. Last year, HBO proved Dr Manhattan right with their risky sequel series to the acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen. Thankfully, it paid off. Watchmen managed to revere the source material while creating something fresh and imaginative unto itself, bringing the comic’s deep exploration of superheroes and politics...
  • Westworld’s Action Scenes Have Become a Major Problem

    I didn’t want to write anything about Westworld season 3. I didn’t want to think about it any longer than I had to. Just doing so makes me sad. I miss the show as it once was; not just the location of the titular homicide holiday park but the...
  • Should The Outsider Get a Second Season?

    HBO’s The Outsider, based on Stephen King’s novel, concluded its 10-episode run last week in an unexpected fashion. With it being adapted from a single novel and the final episode adapting the closing chapters of the book, it seemed safe to say that The Outsider was a miniseries, a...
  • Raising the Dead(wood)

    First of all, I apologise for the terrible title. I just couldn’t help myself. But more importantly, Deadwood’s back! 13 years after the HBO series came to an abrupt end after a three-season run, Deadwood returns as a made-for-TV movie, written by David Milch, which offers our final glimpse...

    Game of Thrones is the biggest show on TV, and it has every right to be. For 8 seasons now it has grown into a mammoth global hit because of its tremendous writing, intimate character drama and increasingly epic scale. It’s one of my favourite shows, not just of...
  • What Westworld Got Right and Wrong in Season 2

    Spoilers below for Westworld season 2. The second season of the HBO sci-fi drama series Westworld debuted under a huge amount of anticipation and pressure. Not only was the first season critically acclaimed but over the 16 months the show had been off the air, rampant mega-fans had been...
  • Speculating What The Other Parks In WestWorld Could Be

    This article is pure speculation! I don’t have knowledge on what the themes of the other parks in the HBO series WestWorld are but I thought it’d be fun to look at what limited evidence we have and take some guesses before the second season of the acclaimed show...
  • More Hopes for WestWorld Season 2

    After over 16 months away, WestWorld finally returns next week for its sophomore season. The long wait has only fuelled speculation for what the upcoming season of western bloodshed and sci-fi exploration will reveal and I’ve condensed my feelings on what I think is to come into several hopes...
