The Walking Dead: Consumed (Season 5, Episode 6)

We’re not ashes… The Walking Dead is back on form after last week’s somewhat disappointing episode… well mostly. There was a lot that worked well here; the decision to make the slowest episode so far of this season be centered on two fan favourite characters was a wise one. As was locating the episode in […]

The Walking Dead: Self-Help Review (Season 5, Episode 5)

Secrets are spilt as our gang’s fate grows ever darker… Well, this episode was an interesting one. I don’t object to Abraham and Eugene being fleshed out as characters per se, however I think that it could have been handled better than it was in this episode. In order to feel the full weight of […]

The Walking Dead: Slabtown Review (Season 5, Episode 4)

Everything has its price… So, we finally know where Beth is and we have also seen the darker side of those who hold her. As always in the zombie apocalypse, they start off seeming benign, only to then turn out to have a not so pleasant side to them. Not that I have a problem […]

The Walking Dead: Four Walls and a Roof Review (Season 5, Episode 3)

If you start out as the cattle, you’re gonna wind up being the butcher… Well this episode brought those cattle/butcher allusions to a head in what, looking back on it now may have been the most satisfying way possible. Things are moving fast on The Walking Dead, and some people are going to start having […]

Walking Dead: No Strangers Review (Season 5, Episode 2)

Bob says that nightmares end, but here they only ever seem to deepen… Turns out that this episode was pretty much exactly what I wanted to see after last week’s action packed premiere. Things have slowed down somewhat for the characters here as they try to catch their breath, and that was most definitely needed […]

Walking Dead: No Sanctuary Review (Season 5, Episode 1)

The Walking Dead bursts back onto our screens in a blood soaked, explosive first episode… Well, I don’t think I expected that season opener to escalate quite as quickly and violently as it did! I was anticipating a drawn out battle of wits and violence across several episodes as the group struggled to free themselves […]

Zombieland: The Series – Pilot Review (Spoiler Free)

So, after being intrigued about Zombieland as a TV series for quite some time now, it felt good to finally get around to watching the pilot. Unfortunately, it went ahead and  killed any enthusiasm that I had for this series. We are back with the same characters from the film; Tallahassee, Columbus,  Wichita, and Little […]

The Take – Review (Spoiler free)

First off I need to thank Tyson over at headinavice.com for bringing my attention to this TV miniseries – I consider myself fairly well informed about Tom Hardy’s career, having been following it ever since I first saw his portrayal of Heathcliff in the 2009 adaptation of Wuthering Heights. Somehow The Take slipped under my […]
