DVD Review: True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season

DVD Review: True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season
It’s still Buffy-lite, and far from an original show, but while it’s not going to convert newcomers, with plenty of laughs, bloodshed and enough sex scenes to fill a dozen softcore porn movies, it’s the funniest, goriest, sexiest season of True Blood yet...

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level
If you love The Next Generation, you’re going to be buying the full season sets anyway, so it’s a little pointless to pick this sampler disc up. If you’ve never really seen the show and are looking to test the waters before you jump in, this is a great way to do it – the series has...

DVD Review: Futurama: Season 5

DVD Review: Futurama: Season 5
Sady, season five is Futurama’s most wildly uneven yet, with some of the series’ worst episodes to date. Though there’s a trio of excellent adventures to balance it out, the rest manage to be just decent enough, with a laugh-out-loud moment or two per episode, and that’s a far cry...

Blu-Review: Glee: The Complete Second Season

Blu-Review: Glee: The Complete Second Season
It’s a guilty pleasure, sure, but “pleasure” is the operative word, and though the quality of the character drama is often no better than an especially bad episode of Hollyoaks, the music is phenomenal and delivered by incredibly talented performers. It might not be perfect, but when Glee...

Blu-Review: How To Make It In America: The Complete First Season

Blu-Review: How To Make It In America: The Complete First Season
It’s far from the deepest show, and is propelled almost entirely by raw energy, atmosphere and an incredibly likeable cast, but it still translates into 8 episodes of pure, light entertainment that’ll fly by in the blink of an eye. If you’re mourning the loss of Entourage, or miss that...

Blu-Review: Entourage: The Complete Seventh Season

Blu-Review: Entourage: The Complete Seventh Season
Entourage’s penultimate season sees the show losing steam, attempting to make up for the consequence-free storylines of previous years by piling a tonne of drama on Vince in too short a space of time. Thankfully there’s still plenty life left to be found, though, as the larger supporting cast are...

DVD Review: Dexter: The Complete Fifth Season

DVD Review: Dexter: The Complete Fifth Season
The formulaic structure combined with some lazy storytelling means that the show is starting to wear slightly thin, with season five feeling more than ever like writers spinning their wheels until they’re allowed to change things up. Problems aside, though, a thrilling and engrossing major plot fuelled...

Blu-Review: The Twilight Zone: The Original Series – Season One

TV Review: Skins: Series 5, Episode 8 – ‘Everyone’

TV Review: Skins: Series 5, Episode 8 – ‘Everyone’
This generation of Skins boasts an incredibly talented cast and a massive amount of character potential. It’s just a shame that the finale fails to deliver on any of that...

TV Review: Skins: Series 5, Episode 7 – ‘Grace’

TV Review: Skins: Series 5, Episode 7 – ‘Grace’
Sadly, after massive amounts of promise, the fifth series of Skins is back to the weakest moments of Generation Two, lending all its focus to a flimsily-constructed love triangle, implausible plot twists and enough terrible teen melodrama to make Stephenie Meyer weep with jealousy...
