‘Mr. Mercedes’ Book Review

If you’re looking for a fun beach read that features a glut of stunted sexuality and shocking violence, Mr. Mercedes is the book for you. I enjoyed it very much even though it’s the sort of book that the thrill fades quickly after the last word is read, sort of like The Da Vinci Code. […]

‘Inside No. 9’ Review

Our Inside No. 9 review notes that the British dark comedy series, took some unexpected turns. Written, produced, and starring Reese Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton—two names that most Americans would say, “huh?” about if asked—have previously done cult favorites The League of Gentlemen and Psychoville.
