Why Sherlock doesn’t deserve those Emmy nominations

This year's Emmy nominees were recently announced, but the only thing that's stayed in my mind is my complete bafflement at Sherlock's nominations. Sherlock has been nominated for four Emmys, but only two of them are in categories that anyone cares about: television movie, and limited series actor. As this suggests, they're not taking Sherlock as a whole… Continue reading Why Sherlock doesn’t deserve those Emmy nominations

Review: The Passenger

This 2014 French crime thriller follows Captain Anaïs Châtelet (Raphaëlle Agogué) and her team's attempts to catch a serial killer who poses his bodies to replicate Greek myths. To do so, she enlists the help of psychiatrist Mathias Freire (Jean-Hugues Anglade), who quickly becomes the investigation's prime suspect. I found this series on all4 as… Continue reading Review: The Passenger

Review: Preacher 2.01 ‘On The Road’ & 2.02 ‘Mumbai Sky Tower’

IT'S BACK! AMC's adaptation of the 90s DC comic books is back, picking up with Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joe Gilgun) on the first day of their road trip to find God. Literally. He's gone missing, and he needs to answer some questions. You know from the first scene - a… Continue reading Review: Preacher 2.01 ‘On The Road’ & 2.02 ‘Mumbai Sky Tower’

Review: Doctor Who 10.11 ‘World Enough and Time’

Had we but world enough and time This coyness, Lady, would be no crime Why did Doctor Who name this episode after, to put it politely, a carpe diem poem, and to put it bluntly, a sex poem? Actually I'm not sure. This week we're back in the future - which this series seems to have… Continue reading Review: Doctor Who 10.11 ‘World Enough and Time’

Review: Doctor Who 10.08 ‘The Lie of the Land’

Well, that was the worst episode of Doctor Who I have seen in ages. Summary before complaints? Fine. This was the final episode in the corpse-monk-aliens take over the world three-part saga (thank God!). When the episode began they had, you know, taken over the world. And had brainwashed everyone into thinking they'd always been here,… Continue reading Review: Doctor Who 10.08 ‘The Lie of the Land’

Review: Doctor Who 10.07 ‘The Pyramid at the End of the World’

I know I said I'd probably only write a review for last week's Doctor Who. But I've still got Opinions. I would also like to apologise to everybody for letting them believe that this arc was a two-parter. It's at least a three-parter. Lucky us... Fine, it was better than last week's episode. The corpse-monk-aliens are back… Continue reading Review: Doctor Who 10.07 ‘The Pyramid at the End of the World’

Review: Fargo 3.05 ‘The House of Special Purpose’

The feud between Ray and Emmit escalates, and Varga finally gets involved in it by (purposefully?) getting completely the wrong end of the stick. On the other hand, Gloria and Winnie (Olivia Sandoval) get it exactly right, and prove that their partnering up was just as nice as I hoped it would be. I feel like… Continue reading Review: Fargo 3.05 ‘The House of Special Purpose’

Review: Doctor Who 10.06 ‘Extremis’

This is my first and possibly only review I will do of Doctor Who, but this week I've been inspired to write one by my exasperation with Steven Moffat. I'd given up on Doctor Who for years before this series started, but I thought, 'New companion, always liked Peter Capaldi, let's give it a go.' And I… Continue reading Review: Doctor Who 10.06 ‘Extremis’

Review: Fargo 3.04 ‘The Narrow Escape Problem’

Well done Fargo! Strong return after episode 3. Fargo sometimes has those moments that come out of nowhere and are wonderful to watch. Maybe they're a tad pretentious, fair enough if you argue that. But there's always something special about Fargo when it just goes for it. The opening to this episode was brilliant. Season 1's Billy… Continue reading Review: Fargo 3.04 ‘The Narrow Escape Problem’
