    TV Review: The Last of Us, Episode 1

    By Matthew Moorcroft Highest Recommendation The discourse surrounding so called “cinematic video games” is so pervasive nowadays that it’s genuinely hard to remember a time where The Last of Us, originally released in 2013, was seen as revolutionary achievement.

    TV Review: She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Episode 6

    By Matthew Moorcroft Solid Recommendation Out of every MCU shows we’ve had so far, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is the hardest to sustain a conversation about.

    TV Review: Andor Season 1, Episode 4

    By Matthew Moorcroft Highest Recommendation While it’s explosive three-episode premiere showcased Andor‘s slow burn approach and how effective it is, Aldhani slows things back a bit to sit down with the cast.

    TV Revew: She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Episode 4

    By Matthew Moorcroft Strong Recommendation It’s actually refreshing to see a series like She-Hulk pretty much eschew any perceptions about what it wants to be about. So many of these MCU shows – hell, streaming shows in general if we are being honest with ourselves – try to be bigger then their own stories let…

    TV Review: She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Episode 3

    By Matthew Moorcroft Strong Recommendation Directed by Kat Coiro Starring Tatiana Maslany, Jameela Jamil, Ginger Gonzaga, Mark Ruffalo TV-14 It’s a little weird that it’s taken this long for another Hulk thing to really get off the ground, huh?
