Cleared out a 2002 tape. It began with a season 3 ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘Once In A Blue Moon’ in which Jarod pretends to be a profiler. His hair is full of gel. ‘Silence Of The Lambs’ is ripped off. This ep is wearingly typical and the tracking was way off. Jarod is pensive and this was no.

Then came an ‘I-Man’ ep ‘Den Of Thieves’ in which Darien ends up back in jail. Alex annoys and takes up space. This was dull and the tracking was totally off.

Then came a season 1 ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Shimmer’ in which an invisible presence menaces. Whitney has 90s hair. Clark is an ass. Victoria hangs around being untalented. TPTB layer on the simmering homoerotic subtext. Lionel annoys. This was dull with bad tracking.

Best Lines:
“Relationships aren’t always about love Clark.”

“Could this be a plot to get my attention? Well done. It worked.”

“Why do you want to keep her around?”

Finally there was another season 3 ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘Homefront’ in which Jarod pretends to be an arms dealer and Mr Lyle (Jamie Denton) lurks. This has scare tactics, negative reinforcement, shaming and dignity is taken. As usual reality is obliterated and this ep sucks at life and is wildly off.

On Hollyoaks’: Dylan dresses up for court. Kim and Esther steal Curtis. Celine makes a show of herself. Jack thinks Esther stealing Curtis is funny. Dylan is hauled off to jail. Trevor and Grace get angry and grab Curtis back. Kim and Esther are then t-boned by a truck.

Best Line:
“Or I’ll burn the pub down!”
