When Nicole Kidman and David E. Kelley collaborated on the hugely successful series Big Little Lies, it gripped television viewers with its powerful storytelling, strong performances and biting humour.

The great Marvel drought of 2020 lasted for over a year. The last time we saw anything actually new from the Marvel Cinematic Universe was in Spider-Man: Far From Home all the way back in the summer of 2019. It seems almost fitting that a pandemic decided to strike at the very moment that Kevin

“There’s a nice list, and a naughty list” – NOS4A2: Season One (TV Review)

Much like anything that comes from his old man, the work of Joe “Son of Stephen King” Hill gets snapped up for the screen treatment pretty much as the ink dries on the book page.

“Fascinating yet uncomfortable” – I Hate Suzie: Season One (DVD Review)

There are shows out there that can make you laugh, some that can make you cry, but there are shows that can make you downright uncomfortable, and I Hate Suzie was definitely an uncomfortable experience but in the best possible sense.

How many times has the concept of isolation been addressed on screen? Countless times, in many contexts.
