Four Walls And a Roof
Rick is rife with morality judgements and unhelpful thoughts. He is debilitating as he causes inevitable problems. Daryl and Carol have run off. This ep was harsh and wrong. Rick constantly picks fights and causes trouble; he’s just a loud bully. The Terminus types are hungry hungry hippos. Judith causes problems. People are ostentatiously ugly. Rick doesn’t have the mildest tolerance for other people - he is aggressive and hurtful. Darkness and violence takes place. This show doesn’t shirk the violence. The gang ruin Gabriel’s church. Bob finally dies after calling Rick a good person. This was dull and the gang head off in different directions. This was blasé. Why does everyone love Rick and WTF was with the ending?

Best Lines:
“There’s clear threat here.”

“I don’t want to.”

“They’re not counting on us thinking straight.”
“Are we?”

“Well, I guess you know we’re here.”

“I didn’t know if anybody was left.”

“Step out.”

“That won’t stop.”

Do You Believe In Miracles?
The ‘previously on’ segment makes no sense. Sam and Dean growl at each other. I’m tired of the angels and Castiel. TPTB have settled into complacency. The bad angel (Curtis Armstrong) communicates via radio and wants to be the new god. Dean is distressed and I can’t sufficiently care about the Mark Of Cain and the First Blade. Dean and Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) bond, why haven’t they killed Crowley yet?

Sam bugs his eyes. Since when does Sam care about Dean? There is no Destiel. Sam is a ghastly little toerag. There is naff SFX, stupid plans, padding, an army of bums and this was daunting in its badness. Nobody will just compose themselves. Sam never apologises for his crap. This show is sexist rubbish. There are extreme close-ups and ranting and an angel (Tahmoh Penikett) blows up. There is a boring fight, Dean dies again, the Angel tablet is broken, there is much talking about feelings and a twist. TPTB squander all interesting plotlines. Dean is a demon now. Yawn.

Best Lines:
“Don’t do that.”

“Which makes me look more pathetic?”

“It will be glorious.”

“She’s dead man, she’s dead.”

“He’s on drugs.”

“Hell’s fine.”

“No matter the consequences.”

“Get off.”

“He’s not one of you.”

“Do you believe him now?”

“Living in filth or Brentwood.”

“Fine, we’ll fight.”

“Powered by the bone of a jackass.”

“It’s all become so expected.”

“Your reputation long extinguished.”

This ep was too considered, yes Hannibal is a deep, cultured person - we get it. This overdone and trite ep looks like a high fashion shoot. Hannibal is devious and Bedelia has overused drama. There are shrill bursts of processed sound and flashbacks with Eddie Izzard. Hannibal is in Florence pretending to be Dr Fell. Bedelia is subordinated to him, not deceived or misled. Interest lags. Hannibal spews hoary wisdom and other people are difficult and frustrating so they must be murdered for bringing complications. Why isn’t anything actioned against the fugitive cannibal? This ep was not a joy bringer. Tom Wisdom of ‘300’ and ‘Mile High’ was in this as the victim of the week.

Best Lines:
“What have you done Hannibal?”
“I’ve taken off my person suit.”

“Disapproves of my disapproval.”

“I try not to eat anything with a central nervous system.”

“I’ve killed hardly anybody during our residence.”

“Morality doesn’t exist.”

“Sounds appropriately hellish.”
