The Psychology of Mr Robot

Hello friend I was recently interviewed on the Ars Technica ‘Decrypted’ podcast by the awesome Nathan Matisse, looking at the psychology of Mr Robot and the theories behind what Elliot is suffering from and how well this is executed in the show. I will write more on Mr Robot in the coming few days, but… Read more »

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 »

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 »

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 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 »

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 »

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 »

High IQ equals Einstein! Does IQ mean anything at all?

Recently there was a story about a young girl who had apparently beaten Einstein in an IQ test. Actually, reading it again, I see that she also beat Stephen Hawking! Woah, incredible! Or is it? These articles about gifted children always drip with the insinuation that the child/pet dog/sentient fruit that just achieved this massive IQ… Read more »
