When a beloved franchise gets picked up for a revival or reboot, one of two things happens. Either the fanbase gets super protective and starts hating on the new show or they await anxiously optimistic and eager to meet with those fan favourites again after all those years. I fall in the latter group as … Continue reading ‘That ’90s Show’: Season 1 Is Nostalgic In All The Right Ways.
‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Is Top Tier MCU Content, DEAL WITH IT!
I can already see the mob of bigots coming for me after reading the title of this review but I have to say it, after the exhausting rollercoaster that is Phase 4 of the MCU, it felt particularly nice to have a show that I could count on every week to make me laugh and … Continue reading ‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Is Top Tier MCU Content, DEAL WITH IT!
‘Werewolf By Night’… A Very Short and Disappointing Rant.
I always say there should be more spooky episodes and specials and it's insane that the MCU has done it before some of our favourite shows have. With Phase 4 exploring some of the darker elements of the multiverse with characters like the Scarlet Witch, Moon Knight and Daredevil (technically), the addition of Werewolf By … Continue reading ‘Werewolf By Night’… A Very Short and Disappointing Rant.
‘Fate: The Winx Saga’ Season 2 As Reviewed By a ‘Winx Club’ Fan.
They did it again, goddamnit. I swore I wouldn't watch the second season but here I am, seven episodes later talking about 'Fate: The Winx Saga' yet again. I mean I grew up with the original show, I love and adore those characters and the rich world Iginio Straffi created.

‘Ms. Marvel’: A Cosmic Venture Full of Heart (and Inconsistencies).

‘Stranger Things 4: Volume 2’ Had Me In Utter Shambles.
Pop culture hasn't seen something like this happen in years, it's a phenomenon. I got off from work last week and Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill' was playing only to leave and grab a bite at McDonalds where a remix of it was playing. It's actually incredible. I managed to get my family hooked … Continue reading ‘Stranger Things 4: Volume 2’ Had Me In Utter Shambles.
‘Stranger Things 4’ and The Hellish Trials Of Teenagehood.
Three years. We waited three years for a show to return to make us endure hours of unbearable tension, emotional manipulation, cheer-worthy moments and complete and utter devastation. Netflix's crowning jewel, 'Stranger Things' has finally returned to the forefront of the pop culture scene again with a mighty vengeance, making it the inescapable summer event … Continue reading ‘Stranger Things 4’ and The Hellish Trials Of Teenagehood.
‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’… I Mean The Concept Was Nice At Least.
To bring back Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen to reprise their roles as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader in a show where John Williams himself composed the theme only for it to become a distant memory a few weeks after its release... is truly remarkable. This was my most anticipated show for Disney+, I was … Continue reading ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’… I Mean The Concept Was Nice At Least.
‘Heartstopper’ Is A Joyous Reminder To Celebrate Our Queer Selves.
To escape into a world where you can live vicariously through its characters and live out the most joyous experiences and come out wanting to emulate that in your own life, is exactly what 'Heartstopper' has done to me. My immediate reaction after watching this show for the first time besides overwhelming joy and a … Continue reading ‘Heartstopper’ Is A Joyous Reminder To Celebrate Our Queer Selves.
‘Moon Knight’ and It’s Godly Showcase Of Oscar Isaac’s Talent.
With a new year comes a new hero to the ever-growing cast of characters that inhabit the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the 2021 Marvel Disney+ shows offered a retrospective insight into characters we were already familiar with, 2022 promises a completely new slew of characters, the first being the mysterious Moon Knight who was as … Continue reading ‘Moon Knight’ and It’s Godly Showcase Of Oscar Isaac’s Talent.
