What I’ve been watching lately: Part 2 of 2

Last week I blogged about some of the awesome geeky shows I've been watching lately - and there's more! If you're looking for a new Netflix favourite or something else to catch up on on demand, look no further!

Book review: Bryant & May and The Burning Man by Christopher Fowler

Tomorrow sees the publication of the latest in Christopher Fowler's Bryant & May series. Until a few weeks ago, I hadn't heard of the crime-fighting duo but when I was asked if I fancied reviewing a preview copy I jumped at the chance.

It's only two episodes in in the UK but it has… Continue reading New favourite TV show: Elementary

Fictional female role models

I got to thinking the other day about the TV shows that I watch and I realised that they feature some pretty bad-ass, strong women in leading roles. The Mentalist, Fringe, The Big Bang Theory and Chuck all feature great female characters. And those that are no longer in production, such as Buffy the Vampire… Continue reading Fictional female role models
