‘Fear the Walking Dead’ review: ‘Sicut Cervus’ is a clear table-setter

With the mid-season finale coming up, this week’s Fear the Walking Dead focused on setting up all the cards that’ll presumably be knocked over in next week’s big instalment. ‘Sicut Cervus’ is a fairly workmanlike episode of Fear, containing the same mix of assiduously executed, mildly intriguing drama that fails to truly spark and a...

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ review: ‘Captive’ lacks focus

Continuing the pirate story left off by last week, this week’s Fear the Walking Dead proved to be a bit of a step down from recent weeks as it failed to wring much tension or adrenaline from its premise.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ movie review: Marvel are still hitting new heights

After a haphazard yet intermittently compelling first season that powered through the early stages of the zombie apocalypse, the second season looked to be the time for Fear the Walking Dead to even out and decide what kind of show it wants to be. From the looks of this week’s premiere, ‘Monster’, Fear the Walking...

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 finale review: ‘Last Day on Earth’

In all the years I’ve been watching the show, there possibly hasn’t been quite as hyped an episode as this season finale, as it promised the first appearance of famous comics villain Negan, and an adaptation of his memorably brutal, iconic entrance. Unfortunately, while ‘Last Day on Earth’ comes close at points to capturing the...
