Big Names Join The Dark Crystal and Ads Invade a Game

Hello! Yes, don’t worry the Pretty Much Weekly is still pretty much weekly, despite being a day later than usual. That’s my bad. If you’re new here, the Pretty Much Weekly is a weekly series where we share this week’s news in entertainment. And THIS WEEK a sneak peek at a couple of movie ‘villains’, great actors join a great TV series, and capitalism frustrates ...

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 associated promo image on Netflix, I thought… well, why not. And I was pleasantly surprised. T...

Netflix Games and the Next Indiana Jones

Welcome to the Pretty Much Weekly! A series where we give you the latest in movies, games and anything in between. This week, Netflix teases new game announcements, Harrison Ford IS Indiana Jones and Death Stranding officially has a release date! Death Stranding has a release date :O Over the last couple of days, Hideo Kojima tweeted a few enticing but incredibly cryptic teasers. These all lead up...

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 day’s shoot, he’d feel “dirty”, like he couldn’t look women i...

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. Netflix’s series casts Carmen in a different light. With no knowledge of her past, Ca...

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 can ever witness. These chefs aren’t just culinary hopefuls, they’re already et...

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 might look nothing more than a cartoon laden with animal puns, cartoons doing adult things an...

The Dragon Prince

Avatar: The Last Airbender has long been regarded as the pinnacle of animated story telling. More than 10 years have passed, when out-of-the-blue Netflix announces it would be airing a new original series from Avatar’s head writer Aaron Ehasz and Uncharted’s Justin Richmond, in conjunction with Wonderstorm studios. I was all aboard the hype train for the much anticipated The Dragon Prince. The fir...

Final Space

WARNING: FOR YOUR SAFETY – Please ensure that you are SUFFICIENTLY HYDRATED for any viewing of FINAL SPACE. Individuals with HIGH-BLOOD PRESSURE or a HEART CONDITION should seek guidance from a MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL before consuming this 2018 scifi, animated adventure. Okay, what I’m trying waaaaay too hard to say is that Final Space moves faster than Usain Bolt riding a cheetah on a bullet train p...

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Do not read this review. Detailed herein are the reviews of a melancholy writer who, despite the warnings of another writer far greater than he, proceeded to watch the tales of the Baudelaire children, chronicled in the Series of Unfortunate Events and adapted for the television (and laptop) by Netflix. I was only recently made aware of the new adaptation, though the series has been around for a f...

Ajin: Demi Human. Season 1 Review

I enjoyed watching Ajin: Demi Human.  My Netflix account recommended it to me and I ended up watching 12 episodes in a row.  It tackles the dark aspects of the human nature including murder, apathy and suicide (to name a few). It is suitable for 18+ and over as the show can be disturbing at times. Overview The story primarily centres on Kei Nagai, a highschool kid who discovers he is an immortal ‘...
