Love Lies and Records Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Kay Mellor

Love Lies and Records is the latest Kay Mellor drama to hit TV screens and sees Ashley Jensen in a welcome return from the US to star in a UK series. The rather wordy, alliterative and forgettable title relates to the fact that, as Kate, she works in the Births, marriages and deaths department of […]

Unspeakable – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 drama

Unspeakable centres around Jo (Indira Varma) and her 11-year-old daughter Katie (Nina Sorrentino), who’s becoming increasingly distant, soon followed by Jo receiving a text message from someone unknown, who claims her nurse boyfriend, Danny (Luke Treadaway) has been touching Katie inappropriately. Dom Robinson Reviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor […]

Sick Note Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Rupert Grint comedy

Sick Note had me from the trailer, simply because it’s the first time I’ve seen Don Johnson in a TV series since Miami Vice. However, the series mainly centres around Daniel Glass (Rupert Grint), who’s accidentally killed his girlfriend’s cat. Becca (Pippa Bennett-Warner) is already on the verge of throwing him out, and since he […]

Living The Dream Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Philip Glenister

Living the Dream is a new Sky One ‘fish out of water’ comedy/drama where Mal Pemberton (Philip Glenister) thinks the answer to life’s problems is to move him and his family out to Florida for a life in the sun. Well, as long as that’s his plan, fine. Alas, wherever you are, you need money. […]

Human Is – Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Human Is is the sixth episode of Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams, and takes place on Earth 2520AD, or Terra, as it’s known then. The planet’s not doing terribly well, but still, at least we know Earth will still be around in the year 2525, so that’s Zager and Evans’ question answered. Dom Robinson Reviewer […]

Gunpowder: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Kit Harington

Gunpowder is centred around the 1605 Gunpowder plot, as Guy Fawkes wants to blow up the Houses of Parliament. However, this three-parter begins in 1603, at which point Elizabeth I has died, and James I has taken over, although it doesn’t take long before everyone wants HIM dead, too… as if any further replacements would […]

George Michael: Freedom – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 documentary

George Michael: Freedom is the documentary he co-directed, himself, last year, unaware at the time that it would end up screening after he passed away, on Christmas Day 2016, from heart failure. An immense talent of singing and songwriting, he made some incredible tunes over the years, hitting the peak in 1990, for me. I […]

Real Life – Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Real Life is the fifth episode of Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams, and as well as PKD’s stories being quite weird, I understand a fair emount of the content has been changed, and to those who know the originals, this hasn’t always been for the better, so these TV dramas are loosely based on his […]

Gameface Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Roisin Conaty

Gameface is the first full series for Man Down‘s Roisin Conaty as Marcella, part-time actress and mostly-time office temp, as her life lurches from one disaster to another. Thankfully, her disasters are our pleasure as they lead to semi-ridiculous situations which we can partly identify with, plus jokes which on the face of it start […]

Louis Theroux: Dark States – Heroin Town – The DVDfever Review

Louis Theroux: Dark States begins its three-part run with Heroin Town, in Huntington, West Virginia, where users start off on a legitamate prescription for softer painkillers – sometimes following an unavoidable accident, but then if they can’t get enough, they resort to heroin and it’ll just take them out of it entirely, as they can’t […]
