My worst nightmare awaits me later, at home. It’s also what I’m on stage to talk about. “For decades—my whole life, practically—I’ve lived ...

Van Helsing Season 5 – review

Directed by: Various First aired: 2021 Contains spoilers Whilst I had stuck with Van Helsing from Season 1, finding it entertaining – even if it wasn’t high drama, I was less impressed with Season 4 than the preceding seasons (for completeness you can also read the reviews of Season 2 and Season 3). Because of this I did not run head first into season 5 when it dropped to Netflix. It was something I knew I should rectify but I procrastinated and then I noticed that a box set of all 5 seasons on...

Netflix Drops $50 Billion In Value Overnight After Falling Short Of Subscriber Goals

Even before the world was forced to stay home more than ever, Netflix was a major part of the cultural zeitgeist.
