Luke Cage Season 2 Thoughts

All hail the King! Normally when I write about any of the Marvel Netflix series I start saying that they have stretched ten episodes worth of content into thirteen episodes. Maybe I’m now used to the pacing, but after a shaky first few episodes it seemed to just hum along. I never got to the... Continue Reading →

Steins;Gate Thoughts

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time recently using a stationary bike. It can get a bit boring so I end up getting out my iPad (other tablets are available) and watching something on Netflix while my legs do all of the work. A few weeks ago I noticed that they had the dubbed version of Steins;Gate and decided... Continue Reading →

An Introduction to Anime

For most people, the mention of the word Anime leads to thoughts of tentacles, and women with strangely coloured hair wearing very little. I’m not saying that this isn’t true, but like any other stereotype it’s an exaggeration rather than an inescapable truth.  Over the last couple of years, I’ve been exploring the world of...

Humans Series 3 Thoughts

For all the talk about Westworld and Game of Thrones, I think that the best genre television show at the moment is Humans. No show is perfect, I’ll get to that in a moment, but it is the perfect allegory to many things happening in the world right now. This grounding in reality along with... Continue Reading →

Agents of SHIELD Season 5 Thoughts

I read somewhere that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD had been renewed for a sixth season, but you wouldn’t have known that after watching the season finale. Even the name “The End” gave the impression that it was the end. But I’m getting ahead of myself, unlike last season which had three succinct storylines which were... Continue Reading →

Legion Season 2 Thoughts

I wasn’t too sure if I was going to write this. Normally, when I watch a show I have an inkling into what is going on and what is going to happen next. There is an anticipation to the next episode, but with Legion I feel that I’m watching style over substance. It’s beautiful to... Continue Reading →

Supergirl Season 3 Thoughts

I’ve normally described Supergirl as the rainbows, unicorns and social justice show of the Arrowverse. It is fun but there is normally an undertone to everything going on, the alien bar as an allegory to immigration and so on. I felt that this season seemed to be missing something. Supergirl’s greatest strength continues to be... Continue Reading →

Arrow Season 6 Thoughts

There was an opportunity at the beginning of this season to make some major changes. Lian Yu put the whole cast in peril, but the main fallout seemed only to be the death of William’s mother. It felt disappointed, which was a feeling that I just couldn’t shake off for the whole season. It seemed... Continue Reading →

The Flash Season 4 Thoughts

The third season of The Flash was a little disappointing to me. Arrow has always been the champion of dark and brooding, while Barry Allen’s story was always meant to be fun. Going back to basics, by reinjecting humour and fun, was a good idea and one that worked for the most part. The season... Continue Reading →
