On ‘Hollyoaks’: Tegan is back. How? Tom is abhorrent. Tony and Diane are menaced by Tegan. She’s unfair, disproportionate and poorly informed. Peri’s ready to drop. Tegan is disgruntled and she has malevolent agency. Ste and Sinead have a HIV scare. Scott babbles about tan towels. Cameron plots things. Harry ruins Tony’s BBQ. Scott lies. Tony calls Ste and Sinead’s relationship a joke. Tegan attacks Diane. Cameron lays it on thick. Diane is onto Scott. Tegan is a moron. Tony and Diane make out. Harry fancies Ste. Why? Ste overlooks the fact he is cheating on John-Paul with Sinead. Harry and Ste make out and Ste gets violent. Seriously? Tegan poisons Diane.
Diane collapses. Tom is awful. Ste and Harry fight. Sinead wears tiny shorts. Ste has forgotten Doug and John-Paul. Ste proposes to Sinead overlooking the fact that he is married to John-Paul. Where are Pete and Reenie? Peri wears her school uniform skirt up around her armpits. Tom berates her. Price Slice is the only shop in the village. Porsche picks on Celine. Scott disses the Spice Girls musical. Ste and Harry make out in Harry’s school. Inappropriate on so many levels. Tegan carries on poisoning Diane. What is Ste’s appeal? Ste and Harry get naked and Sinead walks in. Tom outs Cameron’s double murder.

Cleared out a 2002 tape. It began with a season 3 ‘Angel’ ep ‘Loyalty’ in which the tracking is way off. Wesley obsesses over baby Connor’s safety. Holtz and Justine are redolent in their horribleness. Wesley talks to a plastic sign. Where is Cordelia? Wesley makes a deal with Holtz.
Then came a ‘Charmed’ ep ‘The Fifth Halliwheel’ in which Paige is jealous that her half-sisters have men. Nobody notices Cole is possessed by the Source. There are three sisters and only one bathroom. There is yap, yap, yap and Paige stares at Cole and badmouths him. SHUT UP BITCH! This was unrepresentative. There are demonic power brokers, Phoebe steals someone’s job as an advice columnist and Paige goes crazy and is unapologetic.
“Sex can replace sleep.”
“New lingerie is in order.”
Then came a ‘Queen Of Swords’ ep ‘The Witness’ in which the run down hick town is protected by Tessa who isn’t recognised in her silk catsuit and tiny lace mask. Peter Wingfield isn’t in this ep. The big bad (Valentine Pelka) is menaced by another big bad (Bo Derek). The big bad’s sidekick (Anthony Lemke) shags the stupid Vera who can’t enunciate properly. Tessa is in peril. This was boring and the Queen of Swords performs her familiar function. This was uninteresting.
Finally there was a ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ season 6 ep ‘Normal Again’ in which the tracking was off. The Trio plot against Buffy. Xander shows up and the others dutifully ignore the pain he caused Anya. This ep prompted intense speculation. Spike annoys. Buffy may be in a madhouse and hallucinating Sunnydale. Her parents show up. Why do the gang still hang out with Andrew in the comics? Dawn whinges. Buffy freaks out and this could have been better.
“Grand overblown conflicts.”
“You’re in a mental institution.”
“The central figure in a fantastic world.”
“They aren’t as comforting as they once were, are they?”
“Grand villains to battle against.”
“Yeah, that makes sense.”
