    Jemaine Clement as Oliver Bird

    Like many people who’ve binge watched Legion, I was blown away by so many aspects of the show. The writing, the performances of the leads, the music, the aesthetic, the challenging narrative structure and the pure insanity of the show were all breathtaking. But one performance hasn’t had the praise it deserves: Jermaine Clement’s.  It was […]

  • Home

    If you’re going to get lost down a YouTube rabbit hole, there are few better ways of doing it than by watching sci-fi short film after sci-fi short film. This is how I came across Home by Loud Pictures. Home’s plot assembles piece by carefully selected piece into a bewitching story of loneliness, loss and […]

    Mad Sweeney’s Journey So Far

    Mad Sweeney has stolen almost every scene he’s been in since he first appeared in American Gods. He’s the breakout God of the series and one of, if not the, most compelling Gods in American Gods. Now that Season 1 is over I thought it would be a fun to have a look at his journey, […]

  • Which Ferengi Are You?

    Recenty I binge re-watched DS9 and decided I loved the Ferengi episodes. So, because I have nothing better to do with my time, I made this quiz: Which Ferengi Are You? The Ferengi characters of Deep Space 9 were some of my favourites on the show. So I came up with this personality test to […]

  • 10 Best Films About Finance

    The world of finance may have a boring reputation, but it’s led to some great films. From exposes like Enron: The Smartest Guy’s in the Room to classic’s like Wall Street, there’s something seductive about movies about money. Especially when it’s a lot of money with a twist of sin. The people at ABC finance […]

    Will they Change the Ending Of American Gods for the TV show?

    We’re a few episodes into American Gods, the TV show, and it’s clear they will be diverging a little from the novel. But the dramatic appearance of Mr World in ‘Lemon Scented You’ made us wonder if they will also change the ending from the novel. This post will be spoiler heavy, so don’t read below […]

    Are the New Gods Bad For Us?

    A strange thought occurred to me when watching Git Gone. A thought that has perhaps uncovered a theme of American Gods that didn’t occur to me when reading the novel it’s based on. There is the chance that this theme was obvious to everyone else but me, of course. If the Reddit American Gods thread […]

    How Scorpius could lead us back to the Farscape Universe

    Farscape ran for four glorious years and those of us who loved the show will forever mourn its passing. Although there have been rumours about a movie circulating for years, it’s unlikely anything will ever be made. But doesn’t mean we have to abandon the whole Farscape Universe. To do so would be a waste […]

    Best Three Scenes from Head Full Of Snow

    Head Full of Snow was in many ways a slow episode. The plot barely advanced and you could write an accurate summary of the key events in one short paragraph. Yet it was also bloody good. There was some great acting and some beautifully shot TV. In fact, this may prove to be one of […]

    American Gods Secret Of Spoon Mr Nancy

    Three Things I Loved and One I Didn’t Understand from The Secret of Spoons

    The second episode of American Gods was a little slower than the explosive opening but was excellent nonetheless. The visuals remain striking and the gods that are introduced are fascinating. In particular, there were three parts of the episode I loved. But there was one I just didn’t understand. What I loved about The Secret […]
