My First Con: London Film and Comic Con 2015

by Callum Tyndallon 21/07/2015
Hot, cramped and achy. If we’re going purely physical, that’s my off the bat response to the convention. The weekend saw the London Olympia heaving with what I assume to be thousands. It reminded me of music festivals I’ve been to, becoming just one in a swell of people that seem near impossible to navigate through. […]

12 Monkeys: The Series Review

by GuruMelon 09/03/2015
Once again I feel like a captive audience: slap the name ’12 Monkeys’ on a product and I will watch, listen to, bathe in, or consume it in whatever way is appropriate. Does this mean I can’t give a balanced review? Not at all, just like all the Marvel products, sure I’ll be there to […]

Finding ‘That Show’

by Andy Haighon 21/08/2013
There’s not been a lack of shows for the intrepid viewer to seek out in recent years, from Grimm to Continuum, The Walking Dead, True Blood and numerous others which feature fantastical or futuristic ideas. Whilst some may be good, they’re not ‘that show: the show that snaps you out of your apathetic seen-it-all daze and […]

What is Defiance, and Should I Care?

by James Buckinghamon 25/03/2013
Answering this question isn’t an easy one, as Defiance isn’t just a game, but also a TV series made for the SyFy Channel. I’ve had the pleasure of playing the game, but unfortunately I can’t comment on the series yet, besides what brief clips I’ve seen floating around the interweb. However, my initial tentative answer […]
