Last Chance U changes school from East Mississippi Community College (EMCC) to Independence Community College (ICC), Kansas for this year’s show. There is an added on extra episode outside of the ICC run to follow up what happened after the show’s cameras stopped rolling at EMCC, which is interesting to […]

Last Chance U Season 3

Ok, so I wasn’t actually in a good place when I saw this. A week off work with flu, I needed something to help cheer me up and along came The Good Place. Well it didn’t really come along I kind of stumbled onto it whilst trawling through the numerous […]

The Good Place



Into the Badlands is almost all about the absolutely amazing fight scenes. The brutal, sword-wielding, blood-splattering, leg-and-arm-breaking, back-flipping battles.
