Reviews of ‘Forces From Beyond’ and ‘’Right To Know’ delayed.

I am reading ‘Dark Ascension’.

Made custard and it thickened and didn’t scramble and it was yum.

Recall such 80s delights as ‘Buns of Steel’ ads and projection TVs?

The 1992 ‘Sun’ headline about the Charles and Diana marriage breakdown ‘Throne Alone’ was hilarious.

On ‘Hollyoaks’: Porsche is drunk on the street. Nico acts up. Hypnotoad and Lindsey visit Joe - the existence of JJ is recalled. They’re self obsessed. Mercedes is a painted floozy. Sienna says people cross the road to avoid her. Ben looms. People mock Porsche and accuse her of attention seeking. Lockie ignores his wife’s obvious pain to practice his crass pick up lines. I’m amazed all Mercedes’ sex with Lockie hasn’t knocked the foetus loose. Ben sticks to his stupid reactionary point of view despite Nico acting like someone with something to hide. Ben wants to be a dad to her. Porsche sticks Cameron’s phone down her cleavage. Joe and Mercedes are expecting a boy. Mercedes mentions Bobby again; she has never tried to see him. Cameron has a tattoo. Porsche cries. Lockie has an inexhaustible thirst for guy on guy action. Maxine follows Nico.

There’s an angry confrontation between Lockie and Porsche. Lockie lies and then Porsche finds John-Paul hiding in the closet. The show has ruined John-Paul. Nico sneaks into Maxine’s kitchen and confesses. I loathe Darren. Lockie has a startling lack of empathy for his wife. Lockie is frankly filthy. The Lovedays fail to create interest. Porsche confronts Mercedes. John-Paul and Lockie have mutual flattery. Maxine creates an unpleasant hostile situation. This show is lazily reliant on a proleptic emotional reaction it doesn’t invoke. There is inexcusable condescension and increasingly questionable thematic and stylistic ranges.

Maxine thinks she is righting a great wrong but is just creating psychic dissonance. Mercedes and John-Paul have no regret and disquiet over the unimaginable anguish they’ve caused Porsche. Has everyone forgotten that Mercedes faked her own murder? Nancy wears ugly clothes and since when is she a teacher? Wasn’t she a journalist? Lindsey has no shame. Nico cries and has continuous and unrelenting misery. Patrick finally decides to do something about the serious harm he has inflicted on so many people. Where is Lisa? Porsche burns Lockie’s clothes. Mercedes just pops up in one scene. Porsche hurls Mercedes, Lockie and John-Paul out of the McQueen house. Patrick does symbolic and physical restitution. This show is an exercise in viewer alienation.

“Don’t embarrass us by lying.”

“Forgive me for finding out.”

“I disgust myself.”

“Mum won’t let me use the knives at home.”

“They’ll lock her away again and she really hates that.”

“The gestation period of a hamster.”

“Herr Blake.”

“The Year Seven welcome packs.”

“Joe was the hot waiter.”

“Look away!”

“Mr McQueen was a no show.”

“I don’t think she’s in the mood to hug it out.”

“We do live here.”
