Riverdale Recaps S2E8: House of the Devil


For all that Riverdale gets right – and make no mistake, I think most of the front half of their second season has been strong – it’s still got it’s problems. Just a shame it had to thrust them up front and centre for their midseason finale.

Vikings Recaps S5E3: Homeland

Vikings is setting itself up for a stonker of a fifth season. I have to admit it – I’ve been so wary of committing to the belief that the show is actually back on track, but this episode, Homeland, proved that Vikings still has a firm grip on so many of the things that make it great, while at the same time striking out into some enticing new territory.

And, well, frankly I’m glad to have had the extra day to give this episode some thought because it was…a lot.

Vikings S5E1/2: The Departed

And we’re back! Since the last set of Vikings recaps, I published two books as well as launching a film criticism site. Without further ego, let’s get to the recap!

What does a post-Ragnar world look like for Vikings? It’s a question I’ve been asking since his death three-quarters of the way into last season, and one that the show hasn’t really offered a definitive answer to until the double-header that opens it’s latest season.
