Review: Heroes 4x9 - Shadowboxing

Heroes - Shadowboxing

In the US: Monday 9th November 2009, 8pm, NBC
In the UK: March 2010, BBC2

Bit of a mixed bag this episode, with unexpected moments and twists aplenty, but with a few hints of dullness here and there, most of them being Peter and Emma.

Preview: Misfits 1x1

Misfits

In the UK: Thursdays, 10pm, E4. Starts November 12

Stick around lads and lasses because this is a very special preview. Not only is there going to be a competition at the end of this, there's also going to be the very first "not great quality" The Medium is Not Enough podcast involving me (and my not very dulcet tones), some other journalists and the creator of E4's Misfits Howard Overman.

Anyway, there are two things British TV traditionally does very badly. One is youth shows. Usually, they're embarrassing - witness more or less anything on BBC1, BBC2 and, ironically enough, especially BBC3 that's aimed at "young people". Okay, there's E4's Skins, but that's a rare diamond in the rough of British TV.

The second is superhero shows. No Heroics, Phoo Action, My Hero: oh dear, oh dear, and can I just add, oh dear?

What's this though? Light at the end of the tunnel?

Now, from E4, comes Misfits, in which ASBO kids on community service get struck by lightning and end up with super powers. It's funny, clever and far more adult than a whole load of shows I could mention. Trailers now, review, competition and podcast after the jump.

Review: Battlestar Galactica - The Plan

Posted on November 6, 2009 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Battlestar Galactica

In the US/UK: Sometime in 2010
Available from Amazon.co.uk on BluRay import

The Cylons were created by man. They evolved. They rebelled. They look and feel human. Some are programmed to think they are human. There are many copies. And they have a plan.

Unfortunately for them, it's rubbish, and they can't make up their minds about what to do. At least, that's what Battlestar Galactica: The Plan appears to suggest. A final "milk it for all it's worth" effort before it becomes impossible to get the actors in the same place, it's more like a director's commentary than a worthwhile addition to a TV classic's range.
