TV review: The Expanse Season 1

November 29, 2016

A new show, with spaceships.  Yea, basically Barbara would have murdered us all in our sleep if we didn't cover this.  The Expanse is a new series from the SyFy channel (and moving to Netflix) based on a series of novels by James S. A. Corey.  Is it any good?  Does the TV show do justice to the books?  Are the spaceships up to Barbara's high standards?

Oh, and a slight warning, we do give away some minor spoilers before we hit the official spoiler section.  Apologies if this catches anyone out.  The parties responsible will be duly punished by podcast enforcers Monster and Mr Snuggles.

Film review: Doctor Strange

November 1, 2016

Doctor Strange, Doctor Strange. Does whatever a doctor can.  Spins a spell... ooooookay, maybe we'll stop there.  So is Marvel's venture into the world of magic as fun and catchy as that Spider-Man theme?  We deliver our thoughts first in a non-spoilery way, but then open up the floodgates and get into the meat of it.
