Review: True Blood Season 7: TV Show

When did True Blood lose its way for you? I'm interested. What ought to have been the bouncing off point? Is it safe to say that it was the witches in Season 4? Could have been the witches, correct? Despite the fact that numerous fans out there beyond any doubt adored Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) shacking up with amnesiac Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård), True Blood Season 7 has left a lot to be desired. What about Season 5's Vampire Authority? Should the arrangement have finished when King Russell bit the pixie dust? True Blood Season 6 brought us Governor Burrell and the sickness, alongside "Vampire…

Review: Better Call Saul: TV Show

There are many characters who deserve a spin-off. Ari Gold from Entourage, Dr. Walter Bishop from the Fringe, or almost anyone from Arrested Development. One that deserved me time in the box, perhaps more than anyone, was the charismatic, slightly rough lawyer, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) from Breaking Bad. His slogan Better Call Saul also became the name of the series if he and Vince Gilligan has again gilded us with great TV entertainment. (more…)

Review: Penny Dreadful Season 1: TV Show

Penny Dreadful Season 1 brings together a quick-firing alcoholic cowboy, Dorian Gray, Frankenstein's monster, an old hunter, a femme fatale and Professor Van Helsing, all involved in the hunt for Count Dracula. No, I'm not talking about a late decided sequel to the Sean Connery film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Nor is it some sort of spinoff Hugh Jackman- "classic" Van Helsing (even though a remake is on the cards, with Tom Cruise in the lead role). No, this blog covers the new Showtime series Penny Dreadful Season 1. And certainly, the concept sounds silly but it's a lavish series written by Skyfall-man John Logan!…

Review: Suits Season 4: TV Show

Review: Suits Season 4: TV Show

Suits Season 4 on DVD starts off strange. All the usual Suits cast are there, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), Rachel (Meghan Markle), Donna (Sarah Rafferty) but Mike has a new job.... it took me a little while to adjust (and remember) that in Suits Season 3, Mike had received new employment with a former client. I was concerned as I didn't see how the shows chemistry would work - Harvey without Mike, what would they do without each other? As I sat down with the Xmarx and Pod Food crew, which turned into a series of nights, I began to wonder how Suits Season 4 would pan out. I watched Suits Season 4 in…

Review: John Wick: Movie

Review: John Wick: Movie

Whilst sitting around with the Xmarx and VIZOO crew on a Sunday afternoon we decided to throw on a movie. We had a few choses, though ended up going with the new Keanu Reeves movie - John Wick. I had my reservations as I am reluctant to watch much with Keanu these days. He had his time is the lime-light (Point break, Matrix) though of late his appearances have been less than appealing. We continued on against my wishes. I held my breathe... (more…)
