W1A Series 3 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

W1A enters its third series, so is doing brilliantly well, given that it was spawned from the two-series Twenty Twelve, which did for the London Olympics what The Thick Of It did for politics. That said, this is rumoured to be the W1A‘s last. This time, the BBC is heading towards its charter renewal, and […]

Static – Comedy Playhouse 2017 – The DVDfever Review

Static is the final of three Comedy Playhouse sitcoms and gets off to a bad start as one of the sitcoms where the ‘star’ can’t think of a name for his character, hence comedian Rob Beckett is ‘Rob’. He has quit his job in London. Why would anyone just quit a job? They don’t grow […]

Semispheres on Nintendo Switch – The DVDfever Review

Semispheres is a game unlike many others in the market at the moment. In fact, in the two hours it took me to complete it, I was constantly reminded of Portal and Portal 2, without the voice work. This Vivid Helix title is a puzzler where you benefit from being ambidextrous, which is something I […]

The Other One – The DVDfever Review – BBC2 Comedy

The Other One centres around two young women called Catherine Walcott (Ellie White and Lauren Socha), who only discover each other’s existence when their father, Colin (Simon Greenall) dies, much to the annoyance of their unsuspecting other halves, Marilyn (Siobhan Finneran) and Tess (Rebecca Front), the latter forever dating to wipe Colin’s misdeeds out of […]

The Villainess – The DVDfever Cinema Review

The Villainess is like a mix of Nikita, John Wick and the videogame Doom, with all its first-person action. Essentially, it’s a revenge movie, where Sook-hee (initially played by Ye-Ji Min, before changing to Ok-bin Kim – as her character ages ten years, in circumstances that will become clear when you watch it) is avenging […]

Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams Episode 1 – The Hood Maker – The DVDfever Review

Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams begins the new 10-part series with The Hood Maker, airing on Channel 4 in the UK and Amazon in the US, and feels like their alternative to Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror, whose fourth series is due on Netflix later this year. As you’d expect with the creator of Blade Runner, […]

Rellik Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Rellik is a new detective drama which comes from the same writers as The Missing and ITV’s new offering, Liar, which actually premieres at exactly the same time as this! The lead is DCI Gabriel Markham, portrayed by Fortitude‘s Richard Dormer, sports a badly-burned face from an earlier case, the details of which we’ll learn […]

My Life As A Courgette on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

My Life as a Courgette – aka My Life as a Zucchini in other territories, depending on what you call the vegetable in question – centres around 9-year-old lad Icare (Erick Abbate), who refers to himself as Courgette, who is taken into care after his mother disappears following an altercation at home. He long since […]

Mister Winner – Comedy Playhouse 2017 – The DVDfever Review

Mister Winner is so-called as Leslie Winner (Spencer Jones) sets out the bog-standard premise of him wanting to propose to his girlfriend, Jemma (Aimee-Ffion Edwards), while she wants to dump him because he prats about too much and isn’t at all serious. The billing for this set up Mister Winner as “hapless but loveable”, a […]

Ark: Survival Evolved on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Ark: Survival Evolved shows that when games of this size, sheer magnitude and potential hourly gameplay come out, I often start to wonder what it would be liked to review games as a full-time career. This one has been out for a while but has passed me by. Now with its official release, containing every […]
