‘Jessica Jones’ teaser
So very very purple.

‘Blindspot’ trailer
Lady Sif, tattoos, Kurt Weller and a mystery. Looks okay.

Best Line:

‘Days of our Lives’ 50th anniversary promo
Tacky jewels, abductions, a serial killer, Andre, Hope looks dreadful and every man has a beard.

Lemons & Limes Juicy Water - okay.

I will review ‘The Secret Fire’, ’Blindspot’ and ‘Scream Queens’.

Unum alterum ita fare non memini re audisse dilixisse (Truly, none remember hearing of a man enjoying another so much)

I am recalling more old UK comic stories: ‘Force of Evil’ in which the UK is invaded by the Sin Pact and a girl’s father becomes their mouthpiece. So everyone hates their family and calls them traitors. She faces down the accusative faces. In ‘The Blind Ballerina’ Carol goes blind but still dances. ‘The Truth About Tricia’ was about Tricia who fakes being blind to push a girl out of her family and steal her place. And in ‘The Locked Room’ a girl’s family act cold and stilted because they’ve been replaced by aliens!

On ‘Neighbours’: Lauren whines about the consequences of her actions. Naomi says she’ll marry Paul. Josh is on Brad’s side. Paige yells at Terese. Brad won’t stop slobbering over Lauren. Paige cheerleads adultery. Lauren claims she loved Matt. Brad won’t apologise and moves out. Naomi is a butterball and keeps holding things in front of her belly - the actress is obviously pregnant. Lauren whines. Imogen shrieks. Lauren wants Brad and chases him. Brad won’t stop being an arse.

Imogen cries and mentions Piper. Josh wants to be with Brad and badmouths his mother. Leaden dog Brad doesn’t want Josh. Lauren follows Brad and badmouths Terese. Brad apologises to Lauren. There is bad acting. Brad and Lauren are abhorrent. The appalling, loutish, offensive, obnoxious loser Brad and Lauren gloat over his ruined marriage. Tyler punches his dad and will end up working for food. Bumbling moron Josh is a selfish pestilence. No-one listens to Tyler’s whining until they do. Imogen warns Lauren off. Monument to tack Brad puts Lauren first as they make plans to be together. Josh has to go home. Brennan will not stop shoving his nose into other people’s business. Grim sullen silence is needed.

Best Lines:

“Indulging Lauren for months.”

“You’ve decided to be with her?”

“You’ve got what you wanted. Brad’s moved out.”

“Planning from the start to steal my husband.”

On ‘Hollyoaks’: Cleo doesn’t check the recycle bin for her deleted essay. Reenie and Pete’s behaviour goes unchallenged. Nana is thick. John-Paul manhandles Porsche. It is revealed that Nana, Reenie and Porsche are repeating generational denied abuse involving horrible boyfriends. There is no doubt as to the sequence of events. Porsche’s breasts seem bigger. TPTB make Porsche stupid and unsympathetic. The seriousness of the McQueen screwups is revealed when Reenie tells Nana that Derek raped her. Nana defies sense by more or less laughing. This makes a change from the usual paltry plotlines. Nana is recalcitrant and very uncertain. The McQueen family isn’t well functioning. Nana looks malicious and grimly rote. Reenie overacts. Nana claws and backbites. John-Paul is flabby filler. Reenie does edginess, full body grimaces and is depressing. So much for the McQueens and their consequence free promiscuity. Who is Kathleen?

Pete and Cleo wander around the school after hours. Their plotline does not beget interest. Cleo makes people uneasy with her scepticism, antagonism and severe ‘morality’. Reenie does a lot of crying and there is a significant critical incident. The McQueens are not wholesomely poor. Nana finally obligingly listens. Reenie reveals she does love Porsche and that she was fathered by Derek. Reenie and Nana bond. Porsche forgives John-Paul and no one at all wonders about Porsche and Pete. Where is Grace? Why is Ste not going after Sinead for custodial interference? Derek’s dead. Diane is sick. Ziggy broods. Porsche has forgiven John-Paul.

Nana freaks. Esther resurfaces and is friends with Scott for some reason. Scott steals Sinead’s red wedding dress. Pete drives a white van - of course he does. Esther suggests a gay pride parade. Nana berates Porsche. Cleo and Porsche are unsympathetic. Ziggy is so insecure in his manhood that he visits Cameron in jail. Jack instructs Peri on childcare. Reenie drinks. Leela is stupid. Tegan looks like a fat cheap stripper whilst screeching and hooting. Where is John-Paul’s son? Tegan coos over Rose. Ziggy gives up on Leela. Cleo is dumb. Scott plays Tony. Nobody has any moral outrage over Scott and they just appease him.

Best Lines:
“Why should I?”

“I’ll criminally damage you!”

“The only good thing I’ve got!”
“Too good for you!”

“How sorry were you then?”

“In for it!”

“A genius at hiding it.”

“My own mum, not believing me.”

“There’s always secrets mum.”

“You were never a victim!”

“I would have known!”

“Like a survival supermarket.”

“Little street rat.”

“She makes me feel so worthless.”

“Ball of angry crying.”

“Her dad was a wrong un.”

“What have I done to you and Porsche?”

“Feet under the table again.”

“Let this be an end to it.”

“She’s not seeing her!”

“I just don’t love you.”
