“One More Thing, Sir…”: A Memoir by Michael Sloan (book review).

I remember the name Michael Sloan with his association with ‘The Return Of The Six Million Dollar Man And The Bionic Woman’ and its two sequels but hadn’t really realised just how much other work he’d done over the years. Remembering credits isn’t something I normally did or made the connections. Sloan first did a […]

Magic: The Gathering: Rise Of The Gateway: A Visual History by Wizards Of The Coast and Jenna Helland (book review)

I am not a fantasy fan let alone ever played a card game associated with it. If anything, the only thing I can really explore here is the art in ‘Magic: The Gathering: Rise Of The Gateway: A Visual History’ by Wizards Of The Coast and Jenna Helland. How much of the art played is […]

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: Jangly Man (horror flick: trailer).

Just the name Jangly Man is enough to freak us out – we don’t really need to watch this trailer for the horror movie, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, or indeed see the full thing and suffer the resulting nightmares. Here’s the blurb for those with stronger constitutions than ours … It’s 1968 […]

One of those who fell […]

Wu Assassins (Netflix new Kung-Fu fantasy series).

Next time someone tells you Netflix is in deep long term trouble as a viable entity because all the big studios are pulling their content from Netflix to bulk-out their own new streaming services, leaving only derivative cheapish made-for-Netflix crap, remind them to watch Wu Assassins.
