Catch-22 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 drama

Catch-22 is a famous novel, and as it’s a book, I’ve not read it, but now it’s been made into a “limited series”, which means it’s a one-off series that won’t spawn a second… …Well, author Joseph Heller wrote a sequel in 1994, Closing Time, so if this is successful, I expect we’ll also see […]

War On Plastic With Hugh and Anita Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

War on Plastic with Hugh and Anita, in case you’re think might refer to Hugh Jass and Anita Hugnkiss, is actually food-botherer Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and his assistant is Anita Rani, who, in the early part of the last decade, once was part of BBC3’s 2005 midnight slot “Destination Three”, who said in a pre-Twitter era […]

Year Of The Rabbit Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Matt Berry

Year Of The Rabbit gives us Matt Berry as Matt Berry, this time in the Victorian era as Detective Inspector Rabbitt, who’s quickly annoyed when being given a cop partner for the first time, in the form of Strauss (Freddie Fox), who fancies the pants off a dead, naked woman who’s been murdered… so you […]

Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too – Black Mirror Series 5 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too is the third, and final, episode in Black Mirror Series 5, and after two disappointing episodes so far, this one also has a well-worn premise of an idolised pop star – Ashley O (Miley Cyrus – Crisis In Six Scenes), whose biggest fan is teenager Rachel (Angourie Rice – The […]

Smithereens – Black Mirror Series 5 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

Smithereens – as in the phrase “smashed to smithereens” – is the second episode in Black Mirror Season 5, but early on, when we meet Chris (Andrew Scott), we see he’s a cabbie who’s overly demanding of his passengers. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the same […]

Striking Vipers – Black Mirror Series 5 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Striking Vipers is the first episode of Black Mirror Season 5, and this time, we’re only getting three episodes, but then we did get the immense Bandersnatch inbetween Christmas and New Year, which had over four hours’ worth of content. Beginning with a tale of true love… well, not really, Falcon… I mean, Danny (Anthony […]

Wild Bill Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Rob Lowe

Wild Bill brings us something I’d never have imagined from when I was first regularly watching ITV as a kid in the ’80s – first of all, it starts movie legend Rob Lowe, and secondly (and especially in the light of how they once treated Robocop at the time), this drama includes a fair bit […]

Good Omens Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – David Tennant, Michael Sheen

Good Omens poses the opener that you might’ve thought that the universe began 14 billion years ago, and the Earth, 4.6bn years ago, but this series confirms that it all began on Sunday 21st October 4004 BC, at 9am… Sounds plausible. Whatever you believe, God is a woman – voiced by Frances McDormand, and Earth […]

Summer Of Rockets Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Keeley Hawes

Summer Of Rockets is a new Stephen Poliakoff drama set around the beginning of the Cold War, circa 1957/58, and while I’ve not really been able to get into his earlier works, this one did seem quite accessible from the start. It follows Russian Jewish inventor Samuel Petrukhin (Toby Stephens) who’s living with family in […]
