Endgame – 2011 – Russian Chess Grandmaster

A couple of weeks ago I watched this series – Endgame. It’s about a Russian grandmaster in chess that is trapped in a hotel. At least in his own mind, as he suffered from agoraphobia. Of course, he lives in the presidential suite or whatever you call it and it cost him dearly. Money that he doesn’t have. So, since he cannot leave and he only plays chess with worthy opponents. He needs to do...

Squid Game – 2021 – Season 1

Squid Game has taken the world by storm. I think that it has also paved the way for some other South Korean or even Asian series as a whole into the western world. Now, South Korean cinema is not so different from western, and American movies. Apart from the language of course. There are other countries in Asia, especially Japan where the culture is way different and usually comes up with really crazy stuff. I...

Babylon 5 – The Gathering

When I first saw Babylon 5: The Gathering back in the day I had no thoughts of it being a pilot for a sci-fi series. It just didn’t occur to me. I guess most pilots for series are like movies though. They have a beginning and an end much like any other film. The Gathering contains some secrets though. So as a film, it doesn’t reveal enough of the truth needed to conclude it. As...

The Tick

I have a hard time creating clickbait headers, and more so for The Tick than more other stuff I’ve written in a while. My time has been quite limited for quite some time so there are not as many posts on here as I would like to but I feel I have to take the time for this series. I never heard about The Tick before but from what I understand it’s originally an animated...

Legend of the Seeker – Fantasy/Adventure series

Legend of the Seeker was a series that apparently wasn’t too popular as it was aired for only two seasons. In my opinion, there were a few more seasons to be squeezed out of it. Ok, so the initial premise was solved as early as in season one. The Hero, being the seeker, defeats the evil tyrant. But as they squeezed in a continuation with a shoehorn in season two it still made sense. The...

Dark Side of the Ring – Entertainment at its darkest

I’ve been spending the last couple of weeks watching Dark Side of the Ring. It’s a documentary series from Vice TV about… you’ve guessed it, the dark side of wrestling. You might think that I’m a huge fan of wrestling as I wrote a review on the documentary Andre the Giant? Or sports in general but nothing could be further from the truth. I do find it interesting to know about these things though. I’m...
