Review | Blackout 1×03

It’s been a strange, and not always consistent ride through the dark streets of Blackout – and now the final episode provides less of a conclusion than a symposium of tensions, concerns and themes.

Review | Bedlam 2×06 ‘Reunion’

Ironically, or intentionally, this episode details the ins and outs of a US comedy launch, as Pucks finally hits the airwaves. Like the … Continue reading
