The Westworld Triumph

I've finally watched all of Westworld season one and I'm left wanting more - much more. A sure sign of an excellent TV show. If you haven't come cross it yet, the premise is loosely based on the Westworld film of 1973, where a 'wild west' theme park is manned by robots. Forty-three years later, ...

Wholesome family viewing…

After thoroughly enjoying the BBC Proms Gershwin concert on TV, I headed to bed with plans to explore Netflix and start something new. For whatever reason, I ended up starting to watch 'American Horror Story', which was indescribably creepy and, at the same time, something I just couldn't stop watching. It's so much more than ...

Terry Wogan, RIP

I woke this morning to news of yet another sad 2016 celebrity death. Jesus, but this year has been rough on our collected talent so far. David Bowie, Alan Rickman and now Terry Wogan. Each different, each using their talents to make lots of people very happy.

Star Trek possibilities

The news that there's a new Star Trek TV show on the way did not escape me. Not one bit. To say I was excited would be an understatement. I still remember tuning in to see the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation and how I neglected dinner and the school friend who ...

Game of Thrones come-down…

I finally caught up with Game of Thrones season five on my flights to and from Singapore last week. It's always a gamble watching GoT on a plane, as you never know when someone is going to be murdered grusomely or when there is going to be an explosion of fairly gratuitous nudity. But safely ...

“Agent Carter” sneak peak

Oooh. Marvel have released a sneak peek of the new Agent Carter show that starts January. The same Agent Carter as featured in the Captain America films, who helped to found S.H.I.E.L.D. All set in the post-war era, this looks sweet. Just a few weeks until it airs in the US. Hope it doesn't take ...

Inhumans coming to S.H.I.E.L.D.?

I really quite like this theory/rumour/potential spoiler. If you haven’t seen the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., look away now. Could they be about to introduce some Inhumans into the story? I hope so. I had Skye marked as either a) Jessica Drew, b) Bobbie Morse or c) Carol Danvers from the end of the ...

Getting my geek on…

Catching up with some reading and watching, geek-style. Owing to a particularly busy work-week, I have a stack of excellent comics awaiting me. I'm particularly interested to see how 'Original Sin' pans out after last issue's cliffhanger ending. I spent some remaining iTunes vouchers on the latest season of Falling Skies (never seen this one) ...

Game of Thrones…Edinburgh edition

This is amazing. Some talented individual has taken the 'Game of Thrones' title sequence and made an Edinburgh version - and I can tell from my many, many visits that it's pretty accurate. You don't have to be a Game of Thrones fan to appreciate how beautiful this is. But it helps.
