Sam's diving into some New Zealand TV, reviewing Fresh Eggs, from TVNZ On Demand. A black comedy following a couple adventure out of the city and into rural ground. Starring some of New Zealand's well know names, Sam reckons its a good laugh.
Everybody loves a good medical drama, right? From House to Scrubs... the list goes on, and Sam's got a personal favourite on that list. New Amsterdam is one season deep, based on the book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer. The series follows Dr. Max Goodwin, the medical director of one of the oldest public hospitals in the US, with goals to reform the neglected facility. Sam reckons you should get amongst.
At Tess's special request, Sam (resident TV expert) investigates True Detective Season 3 but is the world of crime series over-saturated? Can yet another mystery thriller survive? Despite the long episodes, Sam's almost convinced...
Another superhero series suggested by Sam but does it make the cut for top five? We know there's a lot of 'superhero shows' out at the moment, but Umbrella Academy is new, and Sam reckons your time is better spent watching this than Netflix's Russian Doll. Tough call.
Not just one review today, Sam's had some spare time and is here to bring us one and a half reviews for us, this morning. Lucky us. He watched The Purge, reckons it's no good. However, Broad City season five, on the other hand, is absolute gold. Brilliant.
Is there anything greater than a show compared to a real life Hogwarts? Sam, the man himself, compares Deadly Class to Hogwarts and if that's not enough to entice you then what is? The show is based on the graphic novel, an unlikely coming-of-age story set in 1980's punk era with a killer soundtrack, following ten characters (a lot, we know) on their high school journey. Sam recommends you chheck it out on Syfy.
Sex Education has been taking Netflix audiences by storm, but does it live up to the hype? Sam reckons it's bingeable, having watched the entire series in two days himself. Wow. The show follows insecure Otis as he becomes the sex advice expert school, thanks to his therapist Mum.
Can Sandra Oh's latest series, Killing Eve top the many (MANY) seasons of Grey Anatomy? Sam's been watching and so far, he's thoroughly impressed. In a game of cat and mouse Eve and Villanelle go head to head in an equal obsession with each other. But is this enough to get Sam through the entire series? Stay tuned.
