War of the Worlds 2020 TV series (trailer).

Here’s a new science fiction TV series – which is a Fox and StudioCanal co-production – that puts a modern spin on HG Wells’ War of the Worlds (a little like the Tom Cruise film). Following an odd SETI contact, aliens turn up and massacre most of humanity – not sure how: the attack looks […]

These Martians are carnivorous, even if they do turn you into a soup to eat you. Even so, travelling from Mars to Earth for a snack, living off the remnants of mankind seems an odd way to go. You would think they would need more people alive than simply cutting them down. If they were […]

War Of The Worlds (an appraisal of the second episode of the BBC’s new 2019 series).

Please bear in mind that I’m writing down my thoughts and reactions as I watch this episode. It’s very odd seeing the food being rationed out in the second episode, because something I share with HG Wells is we’re both Type One diabetics. At least he fully turned in his early 60s, because he would […]

War Of The Worlds: an appraisal of the first episode of BBC1’s new 2019 series (TV review).

You might have thought it strange that after all these years with the BBC doing historical dramas, that it took until now for them to tackle HG Wells’ 1897 book ‘War Of The Worlds’ as it was originally set, in Victorian (well, Edwardian – close enough) times, as a 3 episode series. Oddly, unlike other […]

War Of The Worlds: The Final Season DVD boxset.

A very big improvement from season one, the ‘War Of The Worlds’ series was completely transformed from a rather turgid ambling affair to something that was much more sleek and interesting. The twenty episodes of season two commenced during October 1989 and offered more life, alien life that is, to the invaders. We actually get […]
