The Angriest: November 2016 in review

I was underwhelmed by Class, the BBC's new Doctor Who spin-off series, so much so in fact that I still haven't watched past the first episode. That still didn't stop my review of that one episode from being the most-viewed post on The Angriest in November. Now that the series is almost over, I'd actually be interested in hearing other people's thoughts on whether or not they liked the show and if it improves after the first middling episode.

Other popular posts this past month included reviews of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes "Realm of Fear" and "The Inner Light", as well as two instalments of The Pull List reviews column - one headlined by Ms Marvel, the other by The Sheriff of Babylon. All up, in November The Angriest reviewed five 2016 films, five older films, 10 TV episodes, one anime episode, four music albums and 54 comic books. Thanks for reading.

  1. Since you asked about Class... I have watched up to episode 7 and it is still pretty meh for me. If it wasn't a Who spinoff, I'd have given up on it long ago. It isn't awful and there are some nice story ideas, but the execution, particularly the characterisation, has failed to engage me at all. Your review comment of "rote and uninspired" nails it.
