Rick and Morty Season 1

While anyone is yet to throw massive amounts of money at me to make a TV show — or anything else for that matter — I’m going say things in this post that are probably way off base. To make matters worse I’m going to make out like they’re accurate or based in some kind […]

Black Mirror – The Collection

Back in 2008 Charlie Booker’s mini-series DEAD SET attempted to do what all good (and most of the bad) zombie stories do: Wrap some social commentary in a tale full of blood and guts and undead shenanigans. For the most part Dead Set succeeded. It’s an extremely enjoyable zombie series with the added bonus of […]

Regular Show Slack Pack – The Complete 1st Season.

If you’ve poked around this site at all, or if you’ve accidentally clicked that link up there titled ‘Powers Cosmic,’ you’ll probably still be in therapy over your inability to come to terms with the time you lost watching the animated series that I wrote, animated, and voiced (along with some mates) over the last […]

Adventure Time – The Complete First Season

Sharing the house with a 4 and a half year old means that you hear about ‘Trying new things’ a lot. Whatever those ‘new things’ are — be it a new vegetable, a new pair of shoes, a new TV show or movie — there’s also a very good chance that you’re going to hear […]

Series: Titan Maximum

There are very few advantages to having pretty much sucked at everything I’ve tried to do in my life, but at least I’ve avoided ever having to face that most daunting of things: The follow up [whatever]. Lets face it, when you’re a nobody no body expects the next thing you do to be brilliant. […]

Series: The Killing (Forbrydelsen)

I don’t know when it happened, but there was once a divide. A gulf which separated the kind of criminal justice television shows that your grandmother watched and those who considered themselves to be on the cutting edge of happening. The Matlock / Miami Vice divergence. The Murder She Wrote / Knight Rider rift, if […]

Series: Moral Orel

When it comes to delicate subjects, religion is probably at the top of the list. So, when treading ground which may be seen as possibly offensive to someone else’s belief system you’ll usually find that the matter is handled with kid gloves. The game Assassins Creed opens with a disclaimer, noting that the game was […]

Series: Welcher & Welcher

When it comes to making television, we Australians suck. Apart from epic wartime dramas, the Australian content that appears on our screens is more often than not low brow and insulting attempts at comedy, which is designed to (and successfully) appeals to… well, morons. Yes, I’m looking at you KATH AND KIM fans. Over the […]

Blu-Ray: Claymore Collection

Told across 26 episodes, Claymore is an epic tale of good verses blah blah blah. Typical of most anime, Claymore is littered with unexplained creatures and mythology that we, the viewer, are expected to accept as ‘the way it is’. Fortunately Claymore’s story is allowed to unfold slowly, giving us plenty of time to catch […]

Series: Darkroom The Complete Series

I was a complete sucker for anthology series when growing up. The Twilight Zone is the most famous of them all, to this day people still imitate the “doo-do doo-do” part of the opening theme to indicate something strange or supernatural(ish) has occurred. The original Twilight Zone series aired back in the early sixties (well […]
