Walking Dead Season 6

What went wrong with The Walking Dead?

Anyone else wondering what happened to The Walking Dead? Seemingly it hasn’t been great for the last few seasons, but this season seems particularly bad. There just seems to be absolutely no consequence for any action at all, the death of several main characters (SPOILERS) including Carl, have just fallen flat with seemingly no story that follows… Read more »

What is up with Cersei’s hair?

Ok, I know that there is tons of stuff happening in Game of Thrones at the moment, but can we pause and try to work out what is happening with Cersei’s hair? Why isn’t it growing back, there has been significant time between when it was cut off and now. Sure it may be stress,… Read more »

Season 7 – Game of Thrones return

Game of Thrones is back! After a longer than ever time, due to increasing production demands, Season 7 is now with us. Foxtel, in Australia, struck a major blow against piracy by dropping the price of their streaming service and then promptly having an outage during the season premiere, yay for Australian internet! Anyway, this… Read more »

2 minute Review: Hit and Run

Time for another quick review, and if you are looking for something light but with action, Hit and Run is your movie. There is so many romance/action movies out there that are just rubbish, but this isn’t one of them. What Hit and Run does differently is it makes the relationships actually feel human. Everyone… Read more »

It’s been a while since the last post here on Couch, life happens and unfortunately this site doesn’t get the love that it needs sometimes. But we are back! If you haven’t read the book American Gods by Neil Gaiman and don’t want to spoil the series, I would highly recommend heading over to Book… Read more »

Downloading Netflix

The big news of streaming (or not streaming) is that Netflix is now offering the ability to download certain movies and shows through their app on tablet and phone. This is an absolutely huge game changer, especially for people who travel a lot, or are away from reliable WiFi services – think while travelling with… Read more »

Westworld Episode 1

Westworld just premiered on HBO to the highest figures since True Detective! But of course it did, Game of Thrones and any number of other great HBO series set it up for them! The question is, does Westworld stack up? The answer seems to be a resounding yes (with a current 9.3 rating on imdb)…. Read more »

mad max without cgi

Mad Max without CGI is incredible

When Mad Max was released and reviewed it was known that a lot of the effects were practical effects rather than computer generated. By practical effects, we mean that the explosions actually happened rather than it being drawn and built through computer aid. Now a pre-production video has been released showing these effects in action and it… Read more »

psycholog of Stranger Things review

Psychology of Stranger Things

We have previously reviewed Stranger Things, but it is time for the psychology of Stranger Things and a little exploration of the psychological themes that sit in the background of the show. So what is there to say about an adventure series about some pre-adolescent kids and a couple of helpful adults? Well, a lot,… Read more »

    Game of Thrones – The Concierge

    This week’s Thrones was rubbish, I can’t say anymore than that for most of the episode until the final 5 minutes and even then it had it’s problems. We had the issue of Littlefinger somewhat resolved after Sansa put her foot down with Brienne in tow and told him what was going to be required… Read more »

  • Ready Player One

    2 minute review – Ready Player One

    I just finished Ready Player One by Ernest Cline whilst on a trip to Tokyo. If there is anywhere in the world to read a book about a world in which technology has taken over, Tokyo is the place. Ready Player One is set in a dystopian future and has undercurrents of the classic Neuromancer by William… Read more »

  • Uncharted 4

    First thoughts – Uncharted 4

    Uncharted 4 is the game of the week – sure Doom is out, but it seems that Uncharted was more anticipated. I was definitely a big fan of Uncharted 3 (and the others, of course), but this is the first on the current generation PS4 – that’s not to mention the recent re-release of the… Read more »

  • Melisandre's necklace

    So what’s up with Melisandre’s necklace

    We all remember it vividly, not just because of the scene itself – but also the fact that the scene was only a few weeks ago – the scene where Melisandre lost faith and removed the necklace to reveal herself as an old hag. That shuffle towards the bed was truly horrifying, given her previous… Read more »

    Battlefield 1 – Pre-release video

    We have previously looked at games that we are playing – namely The Division. I have to admit that I did give up on The Division after I beat the game and the multiplayer just consisted of people pretending to be neutral and then shooting me in the Dark Zone. It’s not just me that… Read more »

    Game of Thrones – Oathbreaker

    Bran continues to learn more about his heritage, this time with his father in a sword fight, which seemingly he won through unfair means – that is, Ned’s friend stab his enemy in the back. This is something that I have never understood, if I am in a fight to the death I don’t think anything… Read more »

  • Game of Thrones – Home

    So, after complaining about it and saying that the viewing public is too impatient, it has finally happened – Jon Snow has arisen, but being the last scene of the episode only time will tell in what way he has come back. I see some people believe that he will be trusting and use the… Read more »

    Game Of Thrones S06 Ep1 The Red Woman

    This blog is a one man show and unfortunately I can’t be as consistent as I would like to, but it’s Game of Thrones season and considering that it is the show that launched the blog, I thought that I should be reviewing it. In addition to that, I have released Diagnosing Westeros: The Psychology of… Read more »

    Diagnosing Westeros

    Ok – so after a very long time Diagnosing Westeros – The Psychology of Game of Thrones is now available on Amazon. The book looks in further depth at the Game of Thrones posts here, in addition to extra characters such as Daenerys and Tyrion. The book is $2.99 US – however keep an eye… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 Ep14 Review – Twice as Far

    What! What!? What would ever make you think to make such a stupid decision! Denise the Doctor, one of the least beloved, but most important characters in Alexandria wanted to go on a little car trip to visit the Apothecary to look for medicines. Why? Because she wants to, that’s why. So you have one… Read more »
