On Crime and Relative Dimension in Space,
you will find star systems, (consulting) detectives, secret agents, and almost human androids chasing headless horsemen. A brief word about me: I read English and Cultural Studies at university and after my Bachelor’s degree, I did what impatient English majors do and went corporate (online marketing), but my penchant for lively literary analysis is alive and kicking. My areas of expertise and particular interest include narrative criticism and the exploration of gender dynamics and associated economic/racial/educational power imbalances in narrative and social contexts, but I’m also here for fandom meta and incoherent flailing whenever a new Doctor Who trailer gets released.
Shows currently in orbit…
include Sherlock, Sleepy Hollow, Doctor Who, Elementary, Scott & Bailey, Lewis, and Hannibal. One recent addition is the 20th-century medical drama The Knick starring Clive Owen. It may sound like House, MD in 1900, but it’s a lot better than that. Of course, TV tries to fill the summer void until our favourite fall shows come back. So far, there’s been mixed success. I started watching and reviewing both Taxi Brooklyn and The Strain, but neither of them have gone past the trial and error stage for me. Are you excited for the new fall shows, though? I’m stoked for Gotham and American Crime, I gotta tell you.
But that’s not all:
The archive is chockfull with shows like Luther, Lewis, Whitechapel, Scott & Bailey and Suits. There’s also always time for an entertaining mini-series… if Fargo or Penny Dreadful are right up your alley, stay tuned.
