Veep Season 7 (2019) – TV Review

In the last decade there have been multiple great comedy shows on TV, especially due to the rapid decline in big screen comedy, but still few manage to come close to the absolute hilarity of ‘Veep’, which closes out its seven season run with a series packed full of surprises, laughs, and occasional emotion. This […]

Veep Season 6 (2017) – TV Review

During the extra time at home provided by the lockdown, I have been using it to watch some shows I hadn’t previously got around to watching before, and the one that has been the stand out, is ‘Veep’. It is the most genuinely laugh out loud funny, controversial, offensive, and brilliant written comedy I have […]

Mrs. Fletcher (2019) – TV Review

This mini-series focusing on the complicated lives (and specifically sex lives) of a single mother, and her teenage son, once he leaves home for college, went under the radar last year but is one of the best shows of last year. Kathryn Hahn is a consistently impressive and risk taking actress, and I don’t think […]

Veep Season 5 (2016) – TV Review

Losing Armando Iannucci as showrunner is enough to send any show off the rails, but instead, this great show just continues to even higher heights.

Westworld Season 3: The New World (2020) – TV Review

Westworld is a strange beast of a show.

It is packed full of mystery, plot twists, and ‘intellectual’ examinations of the world. […]

Veep Season 4 (2015) – TV Review

In Season 4, ‘Veep’ continues to establish itself as one of the funniest and simply best comedy shows of the 21st Century. It is not just a great insight/parody of the behind the scenes chaos of politics, but it is also packed full of great characters that we now know very well, and are fascinated […]

Girls (2012) – TV Review

Lena Dunham’s hit breakout comedy was a huge deal for the years it was on air and made many of its cast and crew into household names. However, in more recent years, due to some of Dunham’s questionable comments and retrospective criticisms of the shows lack of racial diversity and problematic presentations of sexuality, the […]

Avenue 5 (2020) – TV Review

HBO’s new star-studded comedy from creator Armando Iannucci is on the face of it a large scale, sci-fi comedy, but like many Iannucci shows, it is much more about the characters and their interactions and situations they get themselves in, and that is where it thrives. Following a reasonably slow start, the show really found […]
