Cult Telefantasy Series by Sue Short (book review).

Within seven chapters, Sue Short’s book ‘Cult Telefantasy Series’ only examines nine examples and on a couple occasions, two to a chapter, cult TV series. She uses the 1960s series ‘The Prisoner’ as the standard for all cult series after it. Although there’s a massive list at the back, I couldn’t help but wonder whether […]

Black Sails… yo ho ho.

John Silver and Captain Flint join forces in a new pirate-based TV series from Michael Bay, Black Sails, shot as a Treasure Island prequel.

These will mostly be impressions – here’s my Doctor one, still ‘Geronimo!’ – rather than intentional plot spoilers. If you’re living in a country that hasn’t seen these episodes […]
