About

The point of the blog for anyone reading this is that I plan on reviewing stuff. It’s going to do exactly what it says on the tin! Stuart will review ‘stuff’.

But the reason for it is that at the end of every year, when I discuss with my friends what films and tv shows I enjoyed throughout that year, my memory gets pretty patchy. So I want to keep a note of my thoughts on the films and TV shows I watch, the console games I play, the audio books I listen to and anything else that’s worth reveiwing. It’ll help me remember and act as a reminder of what I need to watch again, and indeed, what I should never waste my time with for the rest of my life (and I’m looking at you ‘Assassain in the Limelight’).

So while it helps me, it might also help anyone else reading this. You might learn for example that Crackdown 2 is a terrific game but can be completed in the space of about 3 days, making it a ‘rental only’ game, or that despite it possibly being considered ‘old hat’, I Claudius is something everyone should take the time to watch.

Plus I’m bound to stray off topic and go on the occasional rant about what pisses me off in life.

A few weeks in, and I’m happy to report that people do actually read this, so it’s made it worthwhile.

I hope you enjoy it, and I welcome comments.

    What is the name of your eBook for Doctor Who reviews? I was reading them all and was distressed to not be able to find Trial anywhere and I noticed they’re reserved for the book, as is much of Seven, but I can’t find any information about it on your site? Any info would be great.

      Hey,

      I’ve just finished writing the ebook and am set to release it on Amazon’s Kindle Store in the next few days.

      When it’s done, I’ll post an article on it.

        Any news on your second review book – I greatly enjoyed your first one and I am looking forward to reading the second part

    I would have emailed this to you, keeping it private, but you don’t have an email listed on the site. Oh, well. I’m kind of sorry about that — I actually am — but given what I’m about to say, any apology I make is going to sound really disingenuous.

    I really don’t like your reviews.

    I think it’s kind of funny, actually — despite both you and I obviously caring a lot about Doctor Who (and entertainment media in general), we have very different tastes (or at least like different things in the stuff we share a liking for). I read review after review and I was getting angrier and angrier, and I started to write a really rude comment basically telling you you were terrible and should be ashamed and all kinds of over the top stuff.

    (How dare you dislike the Thor movies! They beautifully blend fantasy, SF, and the superhero narrative, while managing to make Jane Foster a legitimately fascinating character (something it took the comics over half a century to do). How dare you not like Rose Tyler as a character? I agree that she’s horrid in the second season, but everything about the second season of the new DW is terrible; in the first season, I think she’s a fascinating, emotionally complex character. You have different views than I do about sociopolitical mores? You dastard, you! You liked something I liked too, but you liked it for different reasons? Unforgivable! What’s that? You didn’t like an episode of Doctor Who I thought was great? The nerve! That sort of thing.)

    Well, then I came to my senses. We just have different tastes, you and I (very different, it would seem). I also can’t help wondering if we’re anything like the same age — I’m in my mid-thirties — and if that could explain it. But here’s the thing.

    While our tastes differ, you’re obviously an excellent writer, and I think you write reviews very well — as you surely know, that’s a very difficult thing to do, but you pull it off with aplomb. I have more than one friend I’ll be recommending your books to.

    (One final note: you and I like Two Broke Girls for very nearly the exact same reasons. Given that I wasn’t sure anybody else felt like that about that show, this amuses me no end.)
