Black Spot

Black Spot, I thought, is an unusual name for a TV show, but in the past I have bought vinyl (records, you know :P) based purely on the album artwork, and stumbled across some real stunners (Crusader, by English band Saxon, comes to mind). Yeah, call me shallow. Anyway, when I saw the name, and the associat...

A Discovery of Witches

I had never heard of A Discovery of Witches before watching the TV series but it is apparently based off Deborah Harkness’ ‘All Souls’ trilogy. I can never go past a vampire and witches love story though, I live for that. The show is set around Diana (Teresa Palmer), a witch who has no interest in practicin...

The Mindy Project – Season 6

If you’re a fan of The Mindy Project you’ll know that the first three seasons were by far the best, with four and five becoming more lackluster (with the exception of a few highlights). By the series finale at the end of season 6 though, Mindy Kaling brings the show back to its roots and gives her long stan...

The Ancient Magus’ Bride

The premise of this series sounded intriguing. Suffering a tragic childhood, Chise Hatori has lost all hope until a mysterious mage named Elias takes interest in her aptitude for magic. She must learn to wield her powers, while Elias must learn what it means to be human. Unaware of what lies ahead, he decid...

Dirty John

It’s probably a good thing that Eric Bana’s real accent (Australian) is a far cry from John Meehan’s, the character that he plays in Netflix’s Dirty John. Because otherwise, you might think he did just too good a job and mistake him for a creep too. Bana himself admitted that after a...

What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?

I love Korean Dramas. You need to know that before taking my advice on which ones to watch. If you’re completely new to the world of Korean dramas – then my reviews may be misleading. I’m comparing them to other K-dramas, rather then other TV series in general. If you’ve recently dip...

What in the World is “Carmen Sandiego”?

Netflix’s recent release of Carmen Sandiego may trigger excitement in all those 80s babies who grew up with Brøderbund’s original release of the game. If you missed it, you also missed out on the 8-bit version of our red-headed villain and being called “gumshoe” by foreign strangers....

The Final Table – The Next Level in Culinary Competition

Shows like Masterchef and Hell’s Kitchen are all fun to watch, but The Final Table is next level. I’m not the biggest fan of cooking competition shows, but I am certainly passionate about food. And seeing amazing chefs put their heart and soul onto a plate is one of the most beautiful things you...

Puella Magi Madoka Magika

Have you ever had someone bake you a cake? Perhaps for your birthday, it’s beautifully decorated, looks delicious and smells lovely. Then suddenly a hand burst out of your delicious baked treat, pulls out your intestines, tosses them against the wall and says, “Look, art!” What’s that I hear you...

Why BoJack Horseman is the best show on Netflix

Trying to explain BoJack Horseman to people who know very little about it is almost impossible to do without making it sound stupid. It is a very difficult show to explain to people without underselling it’s brilliance. To the Netflix viewer who is simply scrolling through titles deciding what to watch it m...

The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special

Robot Chicken has had a cult following since it started in 2001 (holy crap 2001?!) and I remember when I first got hold of it on DVD shortly after the turn of the millennium as some friends and I sat around laughing at brilliant stop motion animation bringing toys to life in hilarious sketches. The brainchi...

Rick and Morty – Season 3

By now, there are only people who watch Rick and Morty and people who have been told to watch Rick and Morty. To anyone who thought this TV show was just some niche comedy indie-cartoon, season three was a powerful rebuttal with the insane yet strangely irresistible character transformation known as ‘Pickle...
