QI

A wonderful, revolving cast of great British comedians and personalities, set against a genuinely novel and interesting quiz format, make this a classic of modern television, regardless of whether Fry or Toksvig is sat in the big seat.

Set It Up

A totally typical rom-com with some genuinely funny, quirky moments and a decent cast, but it won't light your world on fire.

Artemis Fowl

An empty mess with the occasional moment where the genius of the books briefly shines through. Lacklustre.

The Raid

A brilliantly tense and incredibly choreographed two-hour fight sequence, supported by just enough plot to keep you engaged and interested.

This House

A humorous skewering of modern politics, through the lens of a ridiculous period of British democracy that has some uncanny parallels to modern days.

Coriolanus

Terrible people do terrible things both in and to ancient Rome. Sounds awful, turns out to be incredibly riveting and surprisingly modern in terms of plot and pacing.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

A minor blip that keeps getting stronger on rewatch, especially in the wider context of the MCU. Still, even for first-time viewers the action and spectacle of the original are well maintained and the introduction of yet further characters continues to impress.

Brooklyn 99

An absolutely brilliant new contender for the office comedy crown, with an exceptional cast and a surprisingly nuanced, modern, and human set of characters. There are some dips in certain seasons, but for the most part it continues to be charming, witty, and heartfelt.

Space Force

A surprisingly nuanced comedy that isn't afraid to throw punches in every direction, with an empathetic message at the core. Nothing revolutionary, but nothing to be scoffed at either.

A Streetcar Named Desire

A brilliant performance of a play that is deservedly considered a modern classic. Stanley is one of the best worst characters ever written for stage.
