The Bionic Woman: The Complete Collection (DVD review).

I’ve ended up buying the bionic series back to front, largely because ‘The Bionic Woman’ was the cheapest but then at only three seasons that was understandable. Whatever, it’s still cheaper to buy as a complete boxset than individual seasons when they were originally released plus you do get all the extras with audio commentaries, […]

It doesn’t seem long since we had season 3 but, here we are, back with Bo and the Fae in ‘Lost Girl’ for another 13 episodes of season 4. After running for three successful years, there was a danger that the show could have become a bit stale, lacking ideas and lost in the doldrums. […]

Grimm Below The Surface: The Insider’s Guide to the Show (book review).

‘Grimm’ is looking to consolidate itself as a solid cult series and what is better than spending some money on a glossy coffee table book like ‘Grimm Below The Surface’ that will form a fine souvenir after the show has been sent to oblivion by studio bosses. All right maybe not yet but I’m looking […]
