Feel Good – The DVDfever Review – Mae Martin, Lisa Kudrow

Feel Good begins with comedienne Mae (Mae Martin) going into the Frog and Bucket club in Manchester, just before her slot, and it’s a very high stage to walk onto. I know that from when I once died a quick death on there during a Beat The Frog ‘gong show’ night. Kudos to the audience […]

Kate and Koji – The DVDfever Review – Brenda Blethyn

Kate and Koji brings us back to the days of the sitcom being recorded in front of an audience which sadly, for ITV, is still the present day. Yes, it’s Ethnic Mismatch Comedy #644, and since The Simpsons has predicted everything from making Donald Trump President, to the Coronavirus (Osaka Flu), I reckon they’ll also […]

Penance – The DVDfever Review – Channel 5 drama – Julie Graham

Penanceis a new three-part drama over three nights which takes place at Christmas, making me wonder if the scheduling for this has rather been delayed. Anyhoo, what better time of year to have a tragedy, especially a young lad, as two cops turn up at the house of Rosalie Douglas (Julie Graham – Doctor Who: […]

BBW – On The Edge Series 2 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 drama

BBW is the first episode in the second series of Channel 4’s On The Edge series, and centres around a young woman called Remi (Juliet Okotie, above-centre) who goes about her day overeating, whilst looking for work, but it’s depressing pounding the streets, trying to find something, resulting in applying for a job with rather […]

Hitmen – The DVDfever Review – Mel Giedroyc, Sue Perkins

Hitmen is the first scripted sitcom for evergreen pairing Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, aka Mel and Sue, although not for Sue. I remember them first on Channel 4’s daytime show Light Lunch – and then the spinoff Late Lunch, which both showed perfectly how good they are at improvising. Sue’s first sitcom was her […]

Noughts And Crosses – The DVDfever Review – Masali Baduza

Noughts And Crosses sees white people (Noughts) under the oppression of black people (Crosses), given how the world has gone in an opposite to real life slavery over the years. From the very premise, it sounds like a drama version of Goodness Gracious Me – a series where we got the point within five minutes, […]

The Trouble With Maggie Cole – The DVDfever Review – Dawn French

The Trouble with Maggie Cole is a new drama starring Dawn French in the title role, set in the sleepy coastal town of Thurlbury, which starts off looking like Sunday evening nonsense somehow reserved for Wednesday primetime, then adds some intrigue, and then falls somewhere inbetween by the end of the first episode. On one […]

McDonald & Dodds – The DVDfever Review – Jason Watkins

McDonald & Dodds is the latest cop series for ITV with another mismatched pairing, this time with London hotshot DCI Lauren McDonald (Tala Gouveia) arriving to put a rocket over the comparatively sleepy policing procedures of Bath as she’s paired with DS Dodds (Jason Watkins). Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic […]
