The Goggle Box : Blood , Meth And Tears

bb

So that’s that. The series finale of Breaking Bad, aka Felina, aka Finale aka “Blood, Meth & Tears” (Fe, Li, Na, ok that one is a stretch and slightly inaccurate!). It’s been one hell of a journey for fans watching the exploits of White and Pinkman Inc. And that is the point that has to be stressed. Journey. This finale may have disappointed some, but don’t ever forget the journey this show has been. If you weren’t happy as “Baby Blue” rang through the lab, remember what brought you to this point. God it was brilliant.

Deadpool Review (Rated 18+)

Not your conventional superhero…

Through the years, licensed games have become something of a tainted chalice in the video game industry.

Arkham City followed two years later and a half decent Wolverine game appeared in between and for the most part it looks like licensed titles are getting a bit more care and attention (see the last two Transformers titles, the non-movie tie in Spiderman games and more). The latest licensed game to come along then is the curious beast that is Deadpool and to be honest, it’s a tough one to call. Continue reading

The Walking Dead: Season 3 Review

So the little show that could, The Walking Dead, has now reached the end of its third season. Hard to believe really as it should have never found the audience it did given that it’s a cable TV show based on an indie comic and zombies were not yet back to being flavour of the month, but the figures don’t lie and with it breaking viewer records year on year and seeping into all popular media from memes to video games, t-shirts and it’s own panel discussion show. It is a series however that has infuriated fans at times as it drags at a horrific pace at times and takes extreme liberties with some favourite characters from the comics. So how was season 3? As usual, SPOILERS BELOW!
