Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU! It’s Day 3 of ‘Star Wars’ week on ‘Bradley’s Basement’ in May 2022! It’s very fitting to be sharing my reviews on the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy on ‘Star Wars’ 45th anniversary! This is where it all started before the prequels trilogy, the sequels trilogy and Disney+ shows like ‘The Mandalorian’ and ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ happened. 🙂 Continue reading

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

At the time of this review, ‘Downton Abbey: A New Era’ is out at cinemas! I’m hoping to watch the film on the big screen soon (hopefully by the time you read this review, I will have seen it already). It’s fitting I should finish watching the ‘Downton Abbey’ TV series before I check out the new movie. Continue reading

Good Friday 2022

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

A happy Good Friday to you all! Today, I’m sharing my review on ‘Jesus of Nazareth’, a 1977 TV dramatisation on the Biblical story of Jesus Christ, directed by Franco Zeffirelli and featuring a stellar cast led by Robert Powell as Jesus. I used to watch ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ as a kid at around Christmas and Easter time. Continue reading

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s time for another ‘Downton Abbey’ Christmas Special!

Revisiting ‘Keeping Up Appearances’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

Throughout 2021, I’ve been revisiting ‘Keeping Up Appearances’, another one of my favourite BBC TV sitcom shows from the 1990s. I’ve updated my reviews on each of the episodes featured in the five seasons, including the Christmas Specials, with some extra new thoughts and some brand-new photos. I hope to do a brand-new in-depth review on the prequel ‘Young Hyacinth’ sometime soon. Continue reading

Quick DVD Review – ‘Christmas Eve on Sesame Street’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

I still have the Christmas blues, so let me share with you a Christmas present I gave my Dad in 2021. Let’s talk about ‘Christmas Eve’ on Sesame Street’. I recall watching ‘Sesame Street’ as a little kid and I have fond memories of watching ‘Christmas Eve on Sesame Street’ on VHS every Christmas as a kid. Continue reading

TV Review – ‘The Larkins at Christmas’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

I was lucky in being able to see ‘The Larkins at Christmas’ on Christmas Day itself! 🙂 I was afraid I might miss it, as it clashed with the timing for the 2021 Christmas Special of ‘Call the Midwife’ on BBC One. Thankfully I was pretty lucky to see ‘The Larkins at Christmas’ on a repeat channel for ITV1. Continue reading

TV Review – ‘Call the Midwife’, Christmas Special 2021

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s that time of the year again to share my thoughts on the latest Christmas Special of ‘Call the Midwife’. This year, I missed out on watching Series 10 of ‘Call the Midwife’, mainly because my parents and I were checking out the other seasons before it. But thankfully, we’re right up-to-date. 🙂 Continue reading
