Star Trek: Discovery renewed for a second season!

Excellent news, fellow geeks: Star Trek: Discovery has been confirmed for a second season. That nagging doubt at the back of my mind that we would only get one season - for any number of reasons - has evaporated, and I can enjoy the show more than ever. Just in time, too, as last night's ...

The Punisher is on his way

Starting November 11th on Netflix, Marvel's latest series "The Punisher" hits our screens. Not literally - although it may feel like that after a couple of episodes. You might remember Frank Castle from his appearance in the second series of Daredevil. This time round, the focus is on him and the show looks to be ...

Some thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery

We're five episodes into the first season of Star Trek: Discovery and it's safe to say I'm hooked. It's turned out to be a better show than I could have hoped for!

It's a big improvement over the last trailer, but I'll withhold judgement until I've seen the whole thing. Only a couple of months to go! https://youtu.be/dCyv5xKIqlw

A spoiler-free Captain America: Civil War review

Want the shortest version of this? Captain America: Civil War is excellent for fans of comics, super heroes and action films. However, if you don't know what S.H.I.E.L.D. is or how it's different from Captain America's shield, you may find it hard to keep up with this one. Indeed, if you can't accept that it's perfectly reasonable for two World ...
