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 »

American Gods Review

American Gods

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 »

Batman vs Superman

2 minute Review – Batman vs Superman

I reviewed the Suicide Squad, which I watched in quick succession after Batman Vs Superman and I have to say that I preferred the latter. They both got tons of promo, but I would say that Suicide Squad was more anticipated, especially given the Bat-fleck aspect of BvS and the fact that many people were… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 E05 Review “Now”

    I said it last week and I will say it again this week – the narrative has been broken and we are getting more and more distanced from the events that led the the possible death of Glenn. It doesn’t feel natural, and we have been given a 2 episodes now where there are no… Read more »

  • The Walking Dead Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    The Walking Dead S06 E04 “Here’s not here”

    Ah the classic ‘character development arc right in the middle of an important moment’ scheduling technique…Don’t get me wrong, I find the character of Morgan fascinating, however I feel that rather than build tension around Glenn and his ‘death’ this episode just distances us further from the outcome. But seriously, cool episode, but whatever, we… Read more »

    The Walking Dead S06 E03 “Thank You”

    Spoilers below! This week’s episode of The Walking Dead, in terms of chronology, falls between the last 2 episodes, it is after the first and during the start of the second episode, but focuses on the main crew including Rick and the fighting-capable survivors. The survivors are currently developing a plan to get back to… Read more »

  • JSS The Walking Dead

    The Walking Dead S06 Ep02 – JSS

    The second episode of Season 6 of The Walking Dead “JSS” was a great episode, probably one of the best in recent memory. There was very little dialogue and unnecessary character building that has seemingly plagued the show on and off for a little while now. JSS starts with Enid and her family trying to… Read more »

    The Martian Review

    I wrote last week on the Psychology of The Martian, and have finally got around to seeing the film, so I thought that I would do a quick review of it and how I think that it compares to the book. I will try to keep this as spoiler free as possible, but there may… Read more »

    The Walking Dead Season 6 return

    Review I have to say that I am glad that The Walking Dead Season 6 is back! I have to be honest and say that I feel that Fear the Walking Dead was a poor substitute. It felt like one of those ‘Lite’ or ‘Free’ apps –  until you pay for the real thing you are just… Read more »

    Homeland Season 5 return

    Homeland Season 5 has returned, and let’s hope it is a good one. That isn’t to say that it has been bad in the past, but the ending to Season 4 was a bit baffling, there were a few ‘family drama’ type episodes in Carrie’s life that just didn’t fit the feel of Homeland in… Read more »

    The Psychology of The Martian

    As always due to the nature of analysis, “The Psychology of the Martian” will contain book (and movie) spoilers.  I am a big reader usually, but over the last little while work has been busy and there has just been no opportunity to read anything. That is until I read a thread on The Martian… Read more »

    Fear the Walking Dead review

    This is a Fear the Walking Dead review for the entire first season, there will be spoilers ahead. Well, that was all over well and truly before I thought it was supposed to be (just 6 episodes)….but I have to say that I am glad. I have seen other reviews on imdb and elsewhere and… Read more »

    The Psychology of Idealism – Does Jon Snow know nothing?

    It has been a while and I am sure that everyone is having withdrawals since the ending of Season 5, so I thought that it was time for a new installment in the Game of Thrones Psychology series. After much debate about whether he will be in Season 6 and the general love for him,… Read more »
