Dave Chappelle Netflix Specials Collection 1 (2017) Review
It’s been a decade since Dave Chappelle was last seen on the comedy circuit and doing what he does best. After turning down a lucrative offer to continue the trail-blazing television treat that was The Chappelle Show, the comedian took to a life...
The Flash Season 3 Episode 17 – “Duet” Review
It may seem a rather odd choice for The Flash to switch from its recent rather emotional and darker tone in the ongoing story of the struggle against Savitar to a rather bubbly and whimsical episode, but that’s just what happened and, while tonally...
Arrow Season 5 Episode 16 – “Checkmate” Review
Oliver has been playing checkers this whole time while Prometheus has been playing chess. Always 10 steps ahead, Oliver confronts Adrian Chase for the first time after last week’s big reveal that Prometheus and Chase are one and the same. No matter...
Arrow Season 5 Episode 17 – “Kapiushon” Review
Arrow manages to continue their recent form in a flashback heavy episode. The second half of Season 5 of Arrow has shifted into a very dark and heavy centric-theme exploring the motivations and histories of the characters. Kapiushon manages to tackle the largest motive for Oliver’s lust to kill, albeit he has not been on any killing sprees as of late. An exploration of Oliver’s excruciating journey as he transforms himself into what... Read more
Marvel’s Iron Fist: Season One Review
Netflix and Marvel introduce us to Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, the final Defender ahead of the team-up series later this year. With its casting backlash and some misguided quotes on the press tour, Iron Fist faced an uphill battle to win some people over. Judging by the initial reviews of the first six episodes, it certainly hadn’t done this. Putting casting and other external issues aside, is it as bad as everyone says? Following in the footsteps...

Dave Chappelle Netflix Specials Collection 1 (2017) Review
It’s been a decade since Dave Chappelle was last seen on the comedy circuit and doing what he does best. After turning down a lucrative offer to continue the trail-blazing television treat that was The Chappelle Show, the comedian took to a life away from the limelight and it has taken an even more rewarding offer from Netflix to see him finally return to the stage in one hell of a comeback. Tasked by the streaming company to put together a... Read more
The Flash Season 3 Episode 17 – “Duet” Review
It may seem a rather odd choice for The Flash to switch from its recent rather emotional and darker tone in the ongoing story of the struggle against Savitar to a rather bubbly and whimsical episode, but that’s just what happened and, while tonally it did feel a tad strange to switch from one extreme to the next, the very thought of Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist, among others, channeling their musical backgrounds would feel oh so right. Leaving... Read more
Arrow Season 5 Episode 16 – “Checkmate” Review
Oliver has been playing checkers this whole time while Prometheus has been playing chess. Always 10 steps ahead, Oliver confronts Adrian Chase for the first time after last week’s big reveal that Prometheus and Chase are one and the same. No matter how hard Oliver tries, Adrian knows exactly what Oliver wants to do, countering every step he makes. A villain that seems to know Oliver inside out, trying to destroy his life as he knows it. A nemesis... Read more
The Flash Season 3 Episode 16 – “Into The Speed Force” Review
Following last week’s reversal of realms for Savitar and Wally, it took a bold decision for Barry Allen this week to finally look to overcome his obstacles and open his eyes to the threat that the speed god posed on the road forward. With the team reeling from the loss of Wally in the Speed Force, the only person who could save him was Barry, who would have to overcome some of his own personal demons in the place where he had struggled in the...

The Flash Season 3 Episode 15 – “The Wrath of Savitar” Review
Following two weeks of gorilla warfare, The Flash came full circle this week to focus on the presence of Savitar and just how he is set to pull the team apart with his immense power and abilities. An episode that reminds us just how strong the villains are within the show, “The Wrath of Savitar” proves to be one of the best episodes of the season so far. With last week closing with Wally having a vision of Savitar, we all knew that trouble... Read more
Arrow Season 5 Episode 15 – “Fighting Fire with Fire” Review
Prometheus is finally back on the screen, and in a episode filled with action and revelations, Fighting Fire with Fire was an episode not to be missed. Last week’s episode left Oliver Queen trying to save his career from the cop killing scandal that could possibly destroy him as the mayor, as well as destroy the Green Arrow as a hero. However, Arrow went in full throttle this week, exposing a lot of crucial information for the rest of the... Read more
The Flash Season 3 Episode 14 – “Attack On Central City” Review
If there’s one thing that epitomises just why The Flash is quite simply the go-to comic book-based show on television then you need look no further than its exceptional ability to create that balance between hard-hitting character drama and comic book thrills. It’s a formula that the show has forged from day one and this week’s episode, Attack on Central City, served up yet another reminder why this is a show that is week-in, week-out... Read more
Arrow Season 5 Episode 14 – “The Sin-Eater” Review
Following a rather strongly themed gun-focused episode last week, Arrow this week somewhat rolled back the clock to the good old original days of the series in focusing on the theme of heroes and their duty, as well as intertwining it with the focus on the flip side of normal individuals and their own actions and consequences of said things. With such strong themes involved in this week’s episode we still got a taste of some typical villainy... Read more
The Flash Season 3 Episode 13 – “Attack On Gorilla City” Review
“Welcome to the jungle, baby.” The very words uttered by Cisco Ramone (Carlos Valdes) this week ushered in what was one of the most visually striking episodes of The Flash’s run so far and it also promised the return of one of the most formidable villains to have made an appearance in the life of the speedster – comic book or television. The notion of Grodd making a return was certain to excite fans and this clearly reverberated to the show’s... Read more
Arrow Season 5 Episode 13 – “Spectre of the Gun” Review
In a much more dark and real theme, Spectre of the Gun showcases Arrow‘s take on gun control. An extremely hot topic that can never be boiled down to 45 minutes, Arrow manages to present both sides of gun control through its main characters in an easy to follow format. Whilst interesting to hear the stances of many of the main characters throughout the episode, there is also a reason many films and documentaries have tackled the complex issue... Read more
