RECAP & REVIEW: Peaky Blinders -Series 3, Episode 4

“The thing that Peaky Blinders always seems to do exceptionally well is to offer up a haunting image or theme that just won’t leave viewers alone until the next instalment. Here there were many, including the ritualistic sacrifice of the stag that mirrored the future threat to the Shelby family, and the truly awful cracking sound as Hughes’ thugs pressed Tommy’s head against the tiled wall, a noise which has been ringing in my ears ever since I first heard it.” Danielle takes a look at the edge of the seat drama in this week’s episode.… Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Peaky Blinders -Series 3, Episode 4

ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Door’ (Season 6, Episode 5)

“Just as we saw with Bran when he witnessed first hand what really happened in the fight between his Father and Arthur Dayne, once again we saw the difference between actual events in the past and the way they’ve been retold in the present during the play Arya witnessed. Going forward, that seems incredibly important for the bigger picture.” Our look at the fantastic fifth episode of the season.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Door’ (Season 6, Episode 5)

ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Book of the Stranger’ (Season 6, Episode 4)

“You’d have to have a cold, cold heart not to have been moved by that scene where Jon and Sansa embraced in the courtyard at Castle Black. The only way it could have been better is if Ghost had bounded along, stood on his hind paws and joined in for a group hug.” Our take on the air-punch inducing, fourth outing of the Season.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Book of the Stranger’ (Season 6, Episode 4)

RECAP & REVIEW: Peaky Blinders – Series 3, Episode 2

“Major plaudits need to be given to Paddy Considine for embodying the truly grotesque newcomer, Father John Hughes. He’s already a more convincing, shudder-inducing villain than Campbell was in his whole two-series stint, demonstrating the kind of realistic threat to the Shelby empire that Sam Neill’s scenery chewing Major fell short of previously. I dread to think what he and his cohorts have planned for Tommy next.” Danielle’s analysis of episode 2 of the period drama.… Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Peaky Blinders – Series 3, Episode 2

ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Oathbreaker’ (Season 6, Episode 3)

“It’s so intriguing that they brought up the difference between what Ned told Bran and the rest of his children about that fight at the Tower of Joy, and the fact that it bore no resemblance to what actually happened. Particularly now. So much of what we know about the past in this World comes from oral history, and if Ned Stark can’t be relied upon to tell the truth then everything else should be called into question too.” Our look back at the third episode of Season 6.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Oathbreaker’ (Season 6, Episode 3)
