Josephine | Posted 12.08.2014 | UK Entertainment

Track two, Constellations, is full of bold beats. This is more electro than its preceding track, sometimes the vocals are close, other times they are far off in the distance. The track really is a constellation, the only steady presence seems to be the rhythm, which battles on through the turns on top. Everything else is a varied and ever changing canopy of different moods.

The rather dull and uninvolving third series of Homeland - and let's face it, it's been going downhill since the middle of the first series - is, I think, the result not just of the curse of 'sequelitis' but the impossibility of turning a crisis into a drama.

Great Plot Devices Destroyed by the Modern World

Dale Shaw | Posted 04.07.2012 | UK Entertainment
Dale Shaw

As well as sapping all semblance of civilization and basic human dignity from existence, this modern world, that you are all so very proud of, has ruined the talkies too. Computers, phones, internet, cyborgs; they've all combined to suck the mystery out of life (especially the cyborgs). And when the mystery goes, cinematic plot holes become very difficult to obscure.
