Twin Peaks

If you haven’t had the opportunity to dive back into the twisted mind of David Lynch, now is the perfect prospect. I can confidently state that his entire world is as odd, beautiful and interesting as ever.

Lynch is among the very few visual storytellers who is given free license to do whatever the hell he wants. And he definitely delivers.

Stan:Selecting up 25 years following the inhabitants of Twin Peaks were shocked when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered.

Stargate SG-1

I was awe-struck by the entire world of Stargate when the original movie came out throughout college. As a lover of all things Egypt and also Sci-Fi nearly from birth, it was inevitable that this story would catch my heart and imagination.

I recall being careful about the series, especially in relation to this recasting of both O’Neill and Dr. Jackson. But my fears were immediately abated and SG-1 became what I believe to be among the greatest long-running Science Fiction shows of all time.

With 10 seasons under its belt, then you have every opportunity to bliss out tough with this one.

Stan:Colonel Jack O’Neill and his SG-1 team; Daniel Jackson, Teal’c, and Capt. Samantha Carter, put out to explore the mysteries of the Stargate. Each mission through the gate takes the SG-1 team to new worlds at a seemingly boundless universe.


Additionally, I started a love affair with all the horror genre at far too young an age. One of the very first scary books I read was Silence of the Lambs once I was 10 (do not tell my mum).

This began a lifelong morbid fascination with the planet of Hannibal Lecter, and the personality himself.

I was estatic when I heard that Bryan Fuller was in charge of bringing him on the small screen. I was a lover of Fuller’s hyper stylistic approach to his moderate, especially in Pushing Daisies.

I was blown away by the way he managed to use this into a psychological horror. He did not only create a series with a powerhouse cast, truly sensational writing and a maddingly addictive storyline.

Horrific and repulsive. Beautiful and seductive.

Stan:Explores the first relationship between the renowned psychiatrist and his patient, a young FBI criminal profiler, who is haunted by his ability to empathise with serial killers.


Simon Pegg’s second television series is still my favourite of his job. It’s weird, hilarious and also the epitome of odd 90s British comedy. Much like the housing situation from the series, this really is only one for the geeks and the misfits. Maybe thats why I adore it so much.

Despite being a complete product of its period – it still holds up and is still relatable. And since it’s the British television business, you’ll spend episodes pointing at random characters and yelling, “Ohhh, it’s that guy!” .

Stan:Fate throws Daisy, a wannabe writer, and Tim, a love sick skateboarder, collectively. Defeated by the horrors of flat hunting they decide to pose as an expert couple and discuss accommodation to be able to acquire a bargain flat.


The Sinner

Our publisher Mark Serrels recommended that you me and although I expected it to be great – I did not anticipate being squeezed in so challenging.

I mainlined that the entire thing in one sitting.

This series was not what I believed it was… even after reading the synopsis. It’s dark, complicated and addictive. And although it requites a suspension of view in some regions – that I found myself more than happy to do so.

Let yourself be drawn in. And enjoy the slow construct at the start. It’s beautifully done – equal portions nerve-wracking and exciting.

Netflix:When a young mum inexplicably stabs a stranger into death, a sympathetic detective struggles to uncover the mystery buried in her lost memories.


I have never much been into wrestling – but recently some buddies educated me about the craft and I have found it enjoyable and entertaining.

Plus, I adore Alison Brie and Jenji Kohan (the founder of Weeds and Orange is the New Black) so that I was able to give it a break up.

What I discovered was among my favourite shows of this year. The brilliant writing and throw choices have been coupled using a dark sense of humour.

The figures are so deeply flawed that you don’t actually realise that you appreciate them till they’ve already human body telling their way into your heart.

Much like figures, you may wonder why you should give a shit about an 80s wrestling series… before you discover yourself giving a shit about an 80s wrestling series.

It really creeps upon you.

Netflix: In 1980s LA, a team of misfits reinvent themselves as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.

  • Despite its name I recommend that the “feminist” comedy SMILF. The previous 3 episodes are not out yet but the series so far is that a hoot.
