iZombie: ‘Dirt Nap Time’ Review

Written By: Mathew "JJ" Simoes This week’s iZombie offered up a fairly humorous episode that moves the several plot threads forward in unexpected ways. I must say iZombie is a great show, and while I was somewhat critical of the dominatrix case story, it turns out there was more to it than previously thought (at ...

American Gods: ‘Head Full of Snow’ Review

Written By: Mathew “JJ” Simoes This week’s episode of American Gods may be the best one yet, though as there are only three episodes, that’s not saying much.  The season’s central narrative moves forward with a fresh bit of comedy, and other old gods experience the pitfalls of being an immigrant in America. The highlight ...

iZombie: ‘Some Like It Hot Mess’ Review

Written by: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes This week’s episode of iZombie offered great laughs, excellent character moments and a new twist in one of the season’s ongoing plot threads. Starting with the plot twist, Blaine was faking his amnesia.  It turns out that Blaine's amnesia was his plan to escape the consequences of his old life, ...

American Gods: ‘The Secret of Spoons’ Review

Written By: Mathew “JJ” Simoes American Gods builds on its premiere episode with a thought provoking and slightly expository second chapter. Immigration is an inherent theme in American Gods, one that is especially relevant today, and the series’ writers seem to be aware of and leaning into it.  This is evident in the episode’s opening ...

iZombie: ‘Spank the Zombie’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes This week’s episode of iZombie had a few flaws, but was still an enjoyable morsel (there’s a zombie pun there somewhere) of an other-wise great show. My biggest gripe with this episode is that it felt like the writers were attempting to pull a series of fragments together into a ...

American Gods: The Bone Orchard’ Review

Written By: Mathew ‘JJ’ Simoes Bloody, visceral and brilliant are the three words I would use to describe the first episode of Starz’s new television series, American Gods. Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s critically acclaimed novel of the same name (a personal favourite of mine), American Gods blends elements of classic Americana and folklore into the ...

iZombie: ‘Wag the Tongue Slowly’ Review

Written By: Mathew “JJ” Simoes This week’s iZombie proved to be an enjoyable one with many fun and light-hearted moments sprinkled throughout the story. The case of the week was better that last week’s episode, but not by much. However more was done with Liv’s eating of the victim’s brain this week and it made ...

iZombie: ‘Eat, Pray, Liv’ Review

Written By: Mathew "JJ" Simoes iZombie’s third episode doesn’t offer much in terms of this episode’s plot, but it does bring a few character arcs forward.  A great thing about shows like iZombie is that even when a weak episode comes along (this one wasn’t too bad), the bond between viewer and character can carry ...

iZombie: ‘Zombie Knows Best’ Review

Written By: Mathew “JJ” Simoes So, the first order of business in this review is to apologise for a mistake I picked up on yesterday in my review of iZombie’s season three premiere. The detective character is named is Clive, not Clyde. I have fixed this mistake and will try to avoid similar errs in ...

Archer Dream Land: ‘No good deed’ Review

Written By: Mathew "JJ" Simoes ***Spoiler Warning*** So, alongside iZombie I will also be doing reviews for Archer’s eighth season, which premiered last week.  Like my first iZombie review this is coming a little late (a week’s not much in the grand scheme of the universe.  Anyway, following this review, I will make sure to ...

13 Reasons Why Season 1 Review

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos The smallest of spoilers ahead… The last few years have been a staple for adapting young adult novels to film and television.  It started with Harry Potter and moved on to The Hunger Games, The 100, Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries, among countless others.  But, there has never been ...
