Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Episodes 11-13 review: A satisfying conclusion

Off the back of three terrific, exciting episodes, Jessica Jones slows down a little for a final set of episodes that generally bring things to a satisfying conclusion. Most Netflix shows with a thirteen episode run tend to lack enough story to fill all 13, leading to a fair bit of padding in the later...

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ movie review: A non-fan’s verdict (SPOILERS)

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS PLOT SPOILERS. WE ADVISE NOT READING THE REVIEW UNTIL YOU’VE SEEN THE MOVIE. After three non-stop years of building hype and anticipation, the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga has finally hit cinemas. Strangely enough for a sci-fi fan, Star Wars kind of passed me by. I have vague memories of...

Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Episodes 5-7 review: Bleak and bravely twisted

Episodes 2-4 of Jessica Jones indicated that this was a show that’s confident to move at its own pace, evenly doling out plot twists across the season in a strategy of delayed gratification. The next batch of three episodes sees more groundwork laid for the inevitable explosion, before delving into some thrilling pay-off on all...

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Episode 8 review: ‘Start to Finish’

The Walking Dead’s mid-season finales have always been a bit of a lottery. On one end, there’s the satisfying, game-changing action of Season 4’s prison battle, and on the other there’s the mostly lethargic winter finale from last year. One thing has united every mid-season finale, however – a huge, emotional event to push the...

Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Episodes 2-4 review: An exploration of twisted, dark themes

Jessica Jones mad a promising, dynamic start with ‘AKA Ladies Night’, a premiere bursting with genuine potential for the subsequent twelve episodes. Do the next three episodes deliver? There’s a few, to-be-expected variations in quality, but the three episodes do a solid job of refuting the possibility that Jessica Jones could be a one-hit wonder....

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Episode 7 review: ‘Heads Up’

The Walking Dead is still ticking away at a decent standard creatively, but it’s undoubtedly let the pace slacken in the last few episodes. Even last week’s slightly snappier episode still felt a little too much like filler – a solid hour of television, but not an instalment that felt essential to the season arc....

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Episode 6 review: ‘Always Accountable’

Season 6 has been a very different season of The Walking Dead in many ways, but it’s becoming apparent that it’s kept a very similar structure to Season 5. Just like last year, had an opening trio of fast-paced, action-packed episodes, followed by another couple that slowed down considerably to varying degrees of effectiveness. It’s...

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Episode 5 review: ‘Now’

The Walking Dead has been a lot of things this season. In turns, it’s been a spectacle-driven drama, a siege thriller, a gory horror flick and then a quiet, thoughtful two-hander. This week? It’s just a typical episode. ‘Now’ is Scott Gimple’s iteration of The Walking Dead in default mode: a relatively slow character piece...
