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 »

    What I’m playing – The Division

    So I have plenty to catch up on at the moment – Shadow of Mordor, Fallout 4 and Witcher 3 are all sitting unfinished on my hard drive, but when I saw Tom Clancy’s The Division trailers, I thought that I had to try it out. Now I have to say that I haven’t been… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 Ep 13 The Same Boat review

    Sheesh, what an episode this one was. At the end of Ep 12 those poor shrinking violets, Maggie and Carol had been taken hostage, however is Rick and the crew going to save them, and Maggie being pregnant and all. After Rick did what he could to try to arrange a meeting it just wasn’t… Read more »

  • Deadpool Review

    I’ll start out with the review of Deadpool and then move on to the psychology aspect. I have to say that I really enjoyed this film, the Avengers movies whilst great, have the tendency to rehash the same problems even with the same movie, going from fight scene to debriefing and back again before the… Read more »

  • Not tomorrow yet review

    The Walking Dead – S06 Ep 12 – Not Tomorrow yet

    This week’s episode of The Walking Dead ‘Not tomorrow yet’ definitely moved the story forward (Remember that if you are behind in the series Amazon has them on-demand to buy). There was a little too much boredom in the last few episodes since the return. The Benny Hill-esque chase scene of ‘Jesus’ was ridiculous and… Read more »

    Star Wars VII – The Force Awakens

    Finally getting around to reviewing the ‘new’ Star Wars movie which was released in December of last year, better late than never, I suppose. Really, I don’t have much more to say than has been said in a lot of other reviews, that the Force Awakens is much like a remake of  ‘A New Hope’,… Read more »

    Jessica Jones Season 1 Episode 1

    Anything that Netflix touches at the moment seems to be gold and with the association with Marvel, it looks like they are on to another winner with Jessica Jones. Actually, to digress, Wet, Hot American Summer was terrible and an abomination for Netflix produced content but that is another story for another day. Jessica Jones starts… Read more »

    Ok, so unfortunately I have fallen a little behind with Homeland this year, so I am trying to make up some time with watching and reviewing over the next week. My DVR is getting a little full at the moment, so it is time to get some of it watched and reviewed. I have to… Read more »

    That time of year has wound around again, when we all go on holidays and don’t want to watch TV, when the family is over and we have no ‘must see TV’ to keep us away from dull conversations about Uncle Harry’s new relationship…but hey, everyone has to have a break, right? I missed reviewing… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 E06 ‘Always Accountable’

    I was so wrong when I thought that this season of the Walking Dead would be better than the the last few, that we would leave behind the monologues, the empty story building and the ‘our group is the best’ cliches. This episode continued in the vein of last week – a lot of the… Read more »
