The Flash Dad Theory

Ok so I watched The Flash tonight....and watched the way the show is building Joe up. Maybe its because I just got off doing National November Writing Month...but it got me thinking that if I was a real writer.. wouldn't it be interesting if Barry, fresh from forgiving Harrison Wells (Eobard Thawne edition) who sort…

Mr Robot: The Next Episode

Warning this article MAY contain Spoilers for episode 9.... (possibly...because it's Mr Robot and nothing is what it seems). I have to admit. I let this blog slide into decay - partly because I was distracted by the state of my country and partly because I wasn't feeling very inspired or compelled to write about…

Tonight Belongs to Datak

Tonight, I'm pretty sure Defiance entered the big leagues in Sci-Fi for taking things just that one surprising step forward.  I've always enjoyed Defiance (on SyFy) - I liked the casting (can't fault the crew) but I always worried that the writing wouldn't expand enough - quickly and cleverly. I loved the concept of the…

Constantine

My first experience with the supernatural concept that is "Constantine" was the Keanu Reeves movie. Which I like. (Take that Statis Quo) and Own on DVD (not blu-ray...DVD). In Special Edition Format. (Yep-bought it - Twice!) My second experience was with the comics (a natural journey into the strange) and they were ok. Needed better…

Rush (USA)

It's always excellent to see more of Tom Ellis on tv - but to see him as the lead actor on a well written show was absolutely phenomenal.  Rush (on USA) is a medical drama with a few quirks and twists (all called Dr Rush).  And we love it.  A strong pilot and a very…

White Collar (or The Trouble With Peter Burke)

(There are Spoilers in this article about White Collar Season 5. Please be aware). I have to admit. We're at episode eleven of series five of White Collar and I wanna smack Peter Burke with the back of my hand, onto the floor and then sit on his chest whilst demanding he apologise to Neal…

Sherlock

Sherlock (Read all three reviews) I didn't want to review only one episode of Sherlock so I've waited until all three aired.  I have to admit; mentally I couldn't have hyped it up anymore than if Benedict Cumberbatch came round to waltz with me on the rooftops of Athens itself.  And because of that delusional…

Stand Defiant (Defiance) Trion

I am genuinely fed up with pessimists. And that’s coming from a borderline cynic (who admittedly morphs into an optimist under the influence of caffeine and lucky charms-both sold separately). I bought Defiance (I have bought far worse games in the past that the whole world has loved and that I have hated. And yes…

The White Queen (bbc)

I've been watching a bbc drama called The White Queen which is based on a novel series called 'The Cousins' War' by Philippa Gregory.  I think, unfairly, I've been tainted by 'Game of Thrones' and 'The Tudors' and so I actually watched the first episode for about 15mins and then stopped. Perhaps the absense of…
