Twin Peaks revival 'Part 8' review

Things get Lit As Fuck this week, as WHINE+SPACE try and pick our jaws off the floor and our brains off the wall to make sense of a episode of Twin Peaks that has, it's fair to say, taken us a little bit by surprise!


Strap on your theorizing pants and get ready for Frost and Lynch to take us on a journey through time and space, causing us to ask such fundamental questions as are nukes good for creativity, is it proper to ask permission before you kiss your crush and will SOMEONE get this guy a light?

Doctor Who - ‘World Enough and Time’ review

Now that’s more like it! WHINE+SPACE return to discuss the penultime episode of Doctor Who series 10 and, reassuringly, it’s a bit of a blinder. Reuniting Rachael Talalay behind the camera and Steven ‘Merkin’ Moffat on the pen, we start to see the end game of Capaldi’s tenure fall into place.


How did The Master get from his showdown with the Time Lords to his persona of Mister Razor? Where do Missy’s true loyalties lie? Most importantly, how badly will Moffat mess up the story’s conclusion?

The Stephen King Adaptation Project- 'The Shawshank Redemption' commentary

You thought we were quittin', but we were just gone a stretch - a LONG stretch.

But the Stephen King Adaptation Project is tunneling back up from hibernation once again, and this time we're taking a look at 'The Shawshank Redemption', one of the very best regarded films based on King's work - and HECK - just one of the very best regarded films, period. Yet, with nary a blood splatter or a timey wimey-ness in sight, 'Shawshank' doesn't typify what many viewers may initially expect from a King property.


Do we feel like 'Shawshank' deserves its place as the best regarded King adaptation? Can it possibly beat out the horror-tactic-ness of Kubrick's 'The Shining'? Can we go the whole film without doing an impression of Morgan Freeman? There's only one way to find out!

Twin Peaks revival ‘Part 7’ review

It’s a barnstormer of an episode for the Twin Peaks revival this week, as we cover a heckin’ plethora of plot points. Dougie gets his action hero moment to act like a coiled snake. Bad Coop has a heartwarming reunion with Diane. Plus, Hawk and David Lynch are on a mission to make ‘Fire Walk With Me’ indispensable viewing!


The biggest question is can the WHINE+SPACE boys possibly keep up with all these developments? There’s only one way to find out!

Doctor Who- 'The Eaters of Light' review

Well. We’re just a few episodes away from the end of Peter Capaldi’s run playing the character he likes to refer to as Doctor Who. But, arguably more importantly, we’re just as close to the end of the road for Steven Moffat’s mega-run as grand czar of everything Who-related. So, what type of story are we offered at this late stage of the game?


A pretty average, nondescript one, it would seem! So, join us as we try and discern if there’s an entertaining episode behind the bland competency on offer, whether #fluffwatch has finally reached PeakFluff - and how our view of the season has been coloured by the early leak of John Simm’s return.

Doctor Who - ‘Empress of Mars’ review

Ice to see you!

Yes, after what we can all agree was the middling to rubbish return of the (n)Ice Warriors in ‘Cold War’ Mark Gatiss is having another bite at the apple - and as you might expect, it has a historical bent. HOW did these Victorian soldiers end up on Mars? HOW will they get home? WILL we even be sure of the answer by the episode’s end?

Doctor Who - 'The Lie of the Land' review

The truth will set you free - or WILL it?


WHINE+SPACE are here to find out, as we tune into Capaldi FM for his regular evening broadcast celebrating our benevolent overlords The Monks, and their ability to deliver three-part storylines that pan out in a satisfying manner that justify their length. So, dear listener, join us as we pay our respects and give our thanks to The Monks - for they are kind, gentle, wise and not at all evil-looking.

WHINE+SPACE return to cast our gaze over the third and fourth parts of Davey Lynch’s and Marky ‘Mark’ Frost’s revived Twin Peaks! Will the creative duo keep the quality coming to such a degree where they can claim the title of ‘Mister Jackpot’? Will Lucy and Andy’s child be a member of Mensa? And has Dark Cooper been undercover with David Bowie all these years?


Find out the answer to some of these questions, and many more, in this week’s Revival Review!
