The Simpsons Season 8 (1997) – TV Review

Following on from another huge success in Season 7, and this time not having a huge cliffhanger to build off to start the season, there was pressure on this season of the show to continue the good work, and luckily for us it does. Kicking off the season with a compellingly Treehouse of Horror episode, […]

Fleabag (2016) – TV Review

Following on from the big success of her one woman show, the BBC hired Phoebe Waller-Bridge to turn ‘Fleabag’ into a tv show, and the rest was history. The result is a show that mixes comedy and drama together with such ease that it can cause the viewer whiplash as they bounce between genres, almost […]

Bad Education (2020) – TV Review

However, I decided to give […]

The Deceived (2020) – TV Review

This four part thriller has been a ratings success for Channel 5, and I don’t think it’s any surprise why when you consider it is from the writer of ‘Derry Girls’ and stars ‘Normal People’ breakout megastar Paul Mescal (more on his role later). It is very much cut from the cloth of Daphne du […]
