I'm at the halfway point of my Battlestar Galactica re-watch. To this day many things still astound me. The VFX, the story with its various plot-lines all interweaving and the acting. I want to focus on two particular actors who still shine through in this re-watch. Anyone who has seen the show will recall that... Continue Reading →

Battlestar Galactica Revisited

Being a child of the 70s I grew up with the original Battlestar Galactica on TV. It followed, and benefited from the wake left by all the hype surrounding Star Wars and also faced a few lawsuits claiming that parts of Star Wars had been ripped off by the creators of Galactica. I was 6... Continue Reading →

Costume Recycling

Its been a long standing tradition in both TV and Film for costumes to be recycled. It happens both in the US and the UK and I'm sure elsewhere too. Three fairly well-known examples are below. First we have this space suit that appeared in the 1964 movie 'First Men In The Moon'. It then... Continue Reading →

Death In Paradise

Along with Rizzoli & Isles, Death In Paradise is one of my favourite crime shows. Its 9th series is currently airing on BBC. It's not your usual crime drama. It's very light-hearted and many people have accused it of being too formulaic. In a way it is but that is part of its charm. It... Continue Reading →

Doctor Who- Back on form!

Doctor Who is back and in my opinion back on form. I found Jodie Whittaker's first series very had to watch. Not in any way because of Jodie and the rest of the cast, they are awesome and have lots of potential. It was the writing. I found it very preachy at times and they... Continue Reading →

Star Wars TV Show Idea

There I was, sitting watching Star Wars and thinking about the variety of films, animated shows, Disney+ content that we have, plus all of the other projects that are upcoming when I had an idea. One of my favourite character has always been Leia. Since 1977 when I first saw the film and had her... Continue Reading →
