Giri/Haji – The DVDfever Review – BBC drama

Giri/Haji translates as Duty/Shame, and it’s one of those titles for a piece of entertainment which is anoying from a SEO point of view, because search engine optimisation really hates symbols in a keyword. Anyhoo, this thriller takes place in both Tokyo and London, as two estranged brothers – Kenzo (Takehiro Hira) and Yuto (Yosuke […]

The Accident Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Sarah Lancashire

The Accident begins with an unexpected – but amusing – scene as Polly Bevan (Sarah Lancashire – Kiri) finds 15-year-old daughter Leona (Jade Croot) in bed with a lad who’s far too old for her, but rather than get the cops involved, she shoots him out in her own inimiatable style. Beyond that, while the […]

The Wall – The DVDfever Review – Danny Dyer gameshow

The Wall is overacting on a grand scale in a gameshow which brings Danny Dyer and telly legend Angela Rippon – together at last! The titular device is a giant version of a Japanese pachinko machine where balls drop (f’nar, f’nar) down into slots at the bottom of a… wall. Get it in the right […]

Zomboat – The DVDfever Review – ITV2 zombie comedy

Zomboat is a new ITV2 comedy which brings us something we haven’t seen before – Zombies and boats! Together at last! That’s because zombies have arrived in Birmignham, much to the annoyance of Kat (Leah Brotherhead) and Jo (Cara Theobold), the latter of whom is particular annoyed because it’s started in her own bedroom, in […]

Catherine The Great – The DVDfever Review – Helen Mirren

Catherine The Great is a new four-part series from Sky about the titular lady who came to power in circumstances which didn’t exactly please everyone. Personally, I know nothing about this period of history, but Helen Mirren is always superb, and as for Jason Clarke (as Grigory Potemkin), well, let’s see if I can now […]

World On Fire Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Helen Hunt

World On Fire shows that like all sailors, Harry Chase (Jonah Hauer-King) wants a girl in every port, since he has Lois (Julia Brown) back home in Manchester, but also a Polish lover in Kasia (Zofia Wichlacz). Oh, what a tangled web we weave! That said, Harry is such a wet blanket that it’s amazing […]

Japan with Sue Perkins – The DVDfever Review

Japan with Sue Perkins takes us to a country I’ve wanted to visit for so long, and it’s also the first time for this host, and the journey starts in Tokyo, the Sacred Forests of the Kii Peninsula, Kyoto and Hiroshima. However, given that she has three weeks to spend there, why do we only […]

Defending The Guilty Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Katherine Parkinson

Defending the Guilty is a new BBC courtroom sitcom which saw a pilot episode produced last year, but this completely passed me by. Did I miss a gem? The first episode in this six-part series is that very same pilot, so you can find out for yourself… Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since […]

Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out – The DVDfever Review – BBC Three

Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out tells of the pop star’s time from 2011 onwards when she was put into the band Little Mix on X-Factor. All four of them were told they HAD to have social media accounts, and while it can be used for good, she soon discovered “everyone had an opinion on me” […]
