‘The Virtues’ Season 1 Review

The Raw Edge of Human Vulnerability Shane Meadows’ The Virtues (2019) is drama at its finest. It revolves around Joseph, played by the always-brilliant Stephen Graham (Snatch (2000), This Is England (2006), The Irishman (2019)) as he struggles to cope with his son moving to Australia with his ex-wife. The audience then gets to witness ...

Amazing Stories: ‘The Cellar’ Review

Steven Spielberg’s anthology series Amazing Stories has been re-imagined for the 21st century audience. The episode generously provided by Apple for this review is titled “The Cellar” and is surrounded around young Sam Taylor played by Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf, The Maze Runner) who finds himself travelling through time to Prohibition Era United States (the ...

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Season 1 Review

Let’s all be honest with ourselves, teenage angsty dramas (when done correctly) are super fun to watch. I know I absolutely live for the chaos of these types of shows and movies – but nothing could have prepared me for Netflix’s newest show I Am Not Okay With This. While the show does have some ...

‘The Healing Power of Dude’ Season 1 Review

I have to say that one to my favourite parts of television today is the route they are taking to portray topics that shows when I was kid never could, specifically in the case towards mental health awareness. The Healing Power of Dude takes this to a whole new level. With most children’s shows today ...

‘Hunters’ Season 1 Advanced Review

*Amazon was happy to share the first five episodes of Hunters with Talkies Network, so remember there is more to the story than what I’m reviewing in this article. Whether it be in a fictional alternate history or real life, the world can’t seem to rid itself of Nazis – or at least people who ...

‘The Witcher’ Season 1 Advanced Review

*I will preface this review with the following statement: I have never read or played any form of media related to The Witcher series prior to watching Netflix's adaptation of the popular franchise. That is the context under which I am reviewing the first season of Netflix's The Witcher. This is an advanced review based ...

‘Harley Quinn’ Advanced Review

A little while ago, DC Universe sent out what may be, the funniest press email ever seen. In it, they announced that the press would be granted access to the entire first season for their upcoming series Harley Quinn. They also mentioned that, while they’re apparently not as funny as Flebag, they’re “objectively eligible for ...

The Mandalorian: ‘Chapter One’ Review

At last, Disney+ has arrived, and with it, comes their flagship series, The Mandalorian. Touted as the first live-action Star Wars series in franchise history, Jon Favreau’s ambitions sci-fi/western takes viewers on a journey into (mostly) uncharted territory in the Star Wars galaxy. A grimier, lawless era, The Mandalorian puts the spotlight on the inner-workings ...

‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ Advanced Review

Let’s go back in time, January 20, 2006. Disney is premiering the highly anticipated movie High School Musical, and to say five-year-old me lost her mind watching this movie is slight understatement. I lived and breathed these movies as a child – and the two others that would premier in the following years. So when ...

‘Carnival Row’ Season Review

Since the Game of Thrones finale in May, we’ve all been on the hunt for a new high fantasy series and Amazon may have just given us an option for our replacement in the form of Carnival Row. The main storyline in Carnival Row plays out almost like a supernatural version of Criminal Minds. Set ...

‘The Boys’ Season 1 Advanced Review

The Boys is an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ deconstruction of the superhero genre. The series first season is an excellent exploration of superheroes as a concept, unchecked capitalism, and the price for revenge. The titular Boys exist in a world riddled with superheroes, all under the control of Vought International. They are humanities last defense when ...

‘Young Justice: Outsiders’ Mid-Season Review

Young Justice: Outsiders made its triumphant return to the small screen in late 2018, and fans everywhere collectively cheered as their favourite heroes were thrusted into a more mature, and gritty narrative. As the mid-season rolls around, the title team’s heroes are in a sort of transitional state in their lives, both personally and in ...
