Avenue 5 TV Show Background & Information

Avenue 5 TV Show Background & Information

This comedy may take time to mature but the production is well worth the effort. The way Avenue 5‘s plots and nuances develop makes it difficult to recommend specific episodes.  Critics feel that the forth (of the four review episodes pre-screening) was the best.  This suggests that the series is something that is probably going to require patience to get into. Worth the effort though!

The Witcher S01E04 Episode Review

The Witcher S01E04 Episode Review

This was a terrific episode, and great fun to review. It is so well written that we were gripped and entertained throughout.  Again, a common trait with all the episodes is that it is just as good, if not better, to watch the shows again.

The high points of this Witcher Episode were strangely, the graphics and landscapes. In quick succession, we saw completely and interesting looking parts of the continent while Yennefer was being chased and fight sequences, whirlwind and bloody special effects were particularly well done.  Production on the episode was perfect.  Direction kept the show going at a pace and the acting was fun to watch end made the episode gripping.  I honestly loved every minute.  Low points were the silly dialogue and daft wedding banquet.  the whole, lets see the suitors and then get them married in the same evening seemed a bit silly to the point of jarring.  maybe I’m just old fashioned.

The Witcher S01E03 Episode Review – Betrayer Moon

The Witcher S01E03 Episode Review – Betrayer Moon

Many viewers and critics considered this episode to be the best of the early season shows and I am pretty sure (even though I’m a sci fi SadGeezer) that it’s not just because of the nudity.  I’m convinced it was because the story was so strong.  In fact I’d go as far as saying that we don’t even need the backstory of Yennefer or Ciri (or Geralt) – if they are all as good as this, most of us would be happy with an episodic monster killing.  Of course that’s not what is going to happen, we still have a considerable amount of story to get through.  

The Witcher S01E02 Episode Review – Four Marks

The Witcher S01E02 Episode Review – Four Marks

Many critics thought this was one of the weaker of the episodes in the first season – far from it. It was really good! After watching the show a second time I believe it’s one of the strongest episodes of the season. The performances by Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) and Joey Batey (Jaskier) were marvelous and complemented the excellent Henry Cavill (Geralt) and Freya Allen (Ciri) really well. Casting for this show has been a triumph and it makes the characterisation of the saga so much more entertaining!

The Mandalorian – TV Show – Series One Review

The Mandalorian – TV Show – Series One Review

The Mandalorian TV show is a very creditable toe in the water for Disney+. It’s a great show full of fun that is reminiscent of the Star Wars ‘Old Days’ when sci fi was swashbuckling!  There are some issues however and critics have been quick to pounce on them.

The Mandalorian – Series Review – Good, but it needs a story arc!

Batwoman TV Series Review – Not Bad But Mostly Meh

Batwoman TV Series Review – Not Bad But Mostly Meh

Once they cut out the huge number of tacky flashbacks and develop the story a little, the show could develop to be really good. Despite her bad press, I quite like the Ruby Rose version of Batwoman. 

His Dark Materials – TV Show Review

His Dark Materials – TV Show Review

This is a children’s show about the death of God. Ok, ok, I know i’s more than that but it is a children’s book (actually a trilogy) which is very good and much loved by old an young alike. It’s rumoured that it wasn’t originally intended as a ‘young adult’ novel, but was re categorised by the publisher.  This was aimed at being an entertaining family TV show with dark scary undertones – His Dark Materials delivered that. But, can it keep up the momentum?

Kings Avatar Season 2. Will Yang Yang Return?

Kings Avatar Season 2. Will Yang Yang Return?

I would very much like to see Yang Yang return for Season 2 of The Kings Avatar, especially as he attracted so many female fans to the genre. Losing him as a main character would be catastrophic to the live series. Jiang Shuying is a must for the show too. I’m hoping that more female fans will warm up to her. She also suffered from poor writing for the show and many female fans thought her acting was over-the-top.
