Review: Louie, 4.3 & 4.4 - @antpocalypsenow writes on last night’s instalments

In Eddie, one of my very favourite episodes of Louie so far, Louis CK created one of the most exhilarating episodes of any comedy show by daring to focus on the unanswerable question of how to convince somebody that their life is worth living when deep down, they know it isn’t.

Review: Louie, Season 4 Episodes 1 & 2, Back / Model

The best thing on tv is back after a two year absence - @antpocalypsenow reviews new Louie

louie

louieback

Louie is tired. He is tired in every sense of the word. Tired in the most relatable way possible as the sensation of being “rudely awoken by the dustmen”, as Phil Daniels once described it, is utilised to hilarious effect in the brilliant opening scene of the long-awaited comeback of Louie. The cacophony of noise from the New York garbage men wakes Louie up and degenerates into the exact kind of…

Louis CK: TV’s First True Auteur?

Louis CK - TV’s First True Auteur? - by @Antpocalypsenow

louie

According to Louis CK, the secret to getting your way in a negotiation is to genuinely not care whether you get what you want or not. It was this carefree ambivalence that led to FX handing over an unprecedented level of control to the Hungarian/Mexican Bostonite for his incredible show Louie and could well lead to a whole new breed…

True Detective, Season 1, Episodes 1 & 2 Review

New contributor David Barclay on how True Detective lives up to the hype

true-detective-poster-16x9-1

“Of course i’m dangerous. I’m police. I can do terrible things to people. With impunity.”

True Detective arrives on British shores via Sky Atlantic, with an unstoppable wave of hype and a capacity to compel ardent TV geeks to seek out episodes online as soon as they’ve aired in America. How could any show live up to what was arguably one of the greatest TV series trailers in the You Tube era?…

The Walking Dead, Season 4, Episode 11, ‘Claimed’ Review

The Walking Dead finally finds some consistency - @robith on 4.11 ‘Claimed’

wdclaimed

I’ve been a bit confused this last week. I’ve been pointing out the flaws of The Walking Dead for a couple of years now, while it garnered record viewing figures and a stunning 8.8 on imdb. The three episodes since the mid season break have been like watching a different show; tense, character driven and exciting. Yet this week, there seems to have been a swell of opinion turning against the…

Moone Boy, Series 2, Episode 1, Boylé, Boylé, Boylé Review

ignore the fact it’s on Sky1! @robith on the return of Moone Boy

mb

If you missed season one of Sky’s wonderful Moone Boy, shame on you! Born from a series of shorts broadcast one Christmas on Sky, international superstar Chris O’Dowd’s take on a fictionalised version of his childhood in western Ireland is at once nostalgic, warm, surreal and very, very funny. It’s quite unlike anything around at the moment – this week’s return featured jokes about the World…

Don’t Miss: Inside Number 9

Don’t Miss: Inside Number 9 - @robith on one of the best things on british tv at the moment

inside-number-9-001

If you’re familiar with the works of League of Gentlemen collaborators Steve Pemberton and Reese Shearsmith, you may think you’d know what to expect from their new effort, Inside No.9. And you’d be totally wrong.

Their last effort Psychoville had the pair separated writing wise from Mark Gatiss who now spends his days in Sherlock and writing crap episodes of Doctor Who (though still popping up…

We Need To Talk About Hannah

We Need To Talk About Hannah; @robith on the character development of the Girls’ lead in Season 3

girlskkk

First up, I’d just like to say that I love Girls, and I think Lena Dunham is the best. Season 1 was, to use a cliche, a breath of fresh air. Even moving past the all too sad novelty of a TV show with a majority female cast show mostly written and directed by a woman, it was human, natural, brutal and bloody funny.

Season two started in riotous form; the Donald Glover break up episode in…

The Walking Dead, Season 4, Episode 10, ‘Inmates’ Review

Walking Dead, 4.10, Inmates review by @robith

inmates

I was quite surprised by the reaction to last week’s TWD episode. Having hankered for some character driven action for so long, I thought last week’s was well crafted, tense and actually interesting. All the things I’d wanted in my mid season report.

However the show does it, and is called boring. Maybe for some it’s just too far gone.

I try not to see any other comments before I write my…
