TV Review: Spitting Image – Episode 10

TV Review: Spitting Image – Episode 10

I don’t have time to watch the news anymore, so now I just rely on the twenty minutes of drivel Spitting Image pours into my ear. Its thick, grey, gravy-like paste oozes with such tepid fascination, and over two months into the reboots running, they’ve yet to find their footing. When watching this, it often takes only […]

TV Review: Spitting Image – Episode 9

Once more into the fray we go, but I don’t suppose putting up with this remarkably poor reimagining of Spitting Image is bold, brave, or even noteworthy. A busy week once more for the poor souls trying to keep up with the ever-changing news cycle, at least there’s plenty of material to work with. What should […]

TV Review: Spitting Image – Episode 8

Another week of a news feed full of heavy stories prime for the picking, with Dominic Cummings sounding his farewell from Downing Street, a coronavirus vaccine potentially in the works, and whatever’s going on in the dumpster fire of America, land of the free and childish Presidents. So, to see Spitting Image this week open with a […]

Movie Review: Mangrove

Movie Review: Mangrove

Seeing director Steve McQueen partnering with the BBC to deliver his Small Axe film series, was a genuine surprise. It’s a real treat, too, considering how poor a showing this year of film has been. Five feature-length projects from arguably one of the best working directors today, Mangrove is the first entrant into a series that promises to be […]

TV Review: Spitting Image – Episode 7

What a week it’s been for politics. The biggest changes that Spitting Image can work with this week are the beginnings of a second national lockdown, and the election of Joe Biden to the position of President of the United States. It’d take some truly useless writers to scupper the opportunities in place here, but, as […]

I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, and the various horrors of Wales

Upping the ante on how we as a country come together to witness the bug-infested torture of minor celebrities, Ant and Dec return with I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. Jetting off to the horrors of Wales, twelve brave celebrities looking to polish their star power trundle through Gwyrch Castle in a series that was […]

TV Review: Spitting Image – Episode 6

As if it were a blessing in disguise, I took an impromptu holiday today. It wasn’t out of choice, I was forced into it after losing my hearing and contracting coronavirus. The only benefit was that I missed out last week’s episode of Spitting Image. Not viewing the twenty minutes of raw sewage spewed from that dwindling […]

TV Review: The Comey Rule – Episode 2

TV Review: The Comey Rule – Episode 2

If the cold-intro provided by Stephen Colbert wasn’t bad enough, The Comey Rule doubles down with an acoustic musical number cursing the life and times of former FBI Director, James Comey. Once more played by Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom star has fallen from the pillar he once found himself perched on. Still, much like I have, he musters up […]

TV Review: Spitting Image – Episode 5

With an election encroaching on our minds with every passing day, it’d be futile to stop the steamroller-shaped beast heading over the horizon. Spitting Image and its current-year revival has been incredible in replicating how we all feel. Miserable. A remake that can’t hold a candle up to the original, but has clearly had a couple quid […]

TV Review: The Comey Rule – Episode 1

Any story that opens with Stephen Colbert explaining the story we’re about to see with a Harry Potter analogy is a sign of things to come. The Comey Rule looks to scrutinize and analyse the recent events of James Comey’s dismissal from his position as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Those from across the pond […]
