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 ...

X-Men Gold Vol. 1: ‘Back to the Basics’ Review

Written By: Mathew “JJ” Simoes When Marvel relaunched the X-Men franchise after Secret Wars, I was among those largely disappointed by the line’s output.  Despite having big name creators, the general direction of the line felt stale, with the only stand out title being All-New Wolverine.  Seeing this negative reception to the X-Men line, Marvel ...

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 ...

Written By: Mathew "JJ" Simoes *Spoilers Ahead!!* So, this is a first for Talkies Network, as we have never done any episode reviews before.  I’ll be doing week by week, episode by episode reviews of iZombie, which has just entered its third season.  Now this, isn’t the beginning of us reviewing every show on TV ...
