Jekyll whines to Lily who cares about him and his emotional constipation. She has to be a honey trap. There are zombies in a box. A crab man and an upside down skull are kept locked up in MI0’s secret underground prison. No EU Human Rights BS here. There is a Hitler mention, nobody seems too concerned. This was loud, plodding and coarse. Actions are often dubious. An elephant assists in a prison break. This ep hasn’t anything profound to say, nor has it social nuance or historical prescience, just arbitrary viciousness. This is worse than ‘Demons’. You’re permanently unsure of anyone’s motives.
This was not lustrous or emotive. The jolly hockey sticks law office woman has an exasperating inability to act. The gamey imagings of TPTB are not an unremittingly bleak vision just startlingly unoriginal. Ravi finds a hatch in the jungle. People look up Garson, Henry Jekyll’s former footman who is now a barman in the Empire drinking hall aka a tough pub. The Empire used to be a music hall, I’m sure that is important.
Jekyll gets horny like a polecat and turns into Hyde. Jekyll is in complete sexual despair cos Hyde pops out when he gets horny. There is still no emotional momentum. The BBC’s ‘Jekyll’ was far better than this misinformed, toxic and unproductive mess. One eyed Silas’ eye patch seems to switch eyes. Garson knows the assassin Silas. Hyde drags Silas around the surprisingly clean slum streets. Jekyll finds his grandfather’s lab which is like the batcave. Where is the National Trust during all this? There is a flashback to young Henry Jekyll and young Garson which showcases Henry Jekyll’s first rubbish transformation.

Agents of SHIELD 3x03
A Wanted (Inhu)man
Where are the secret warriors? Coulson is inept and deserves to be reviled. Mockingbird is incurious and abundantly awful. Nobody cares about Simmons’ unimaginable and unfathomable experience. Fitz is discontented and astonishingly unpleasant. This wannabe darker, meaner season bores. Coulson wilfully sabotages sense. Who is funding SHIELD? Who pays their salaries and their bills? Coulson is a rather wretched man. Daisy suddenly cares about Simmons.
This show has no moral heart just a preoccupation with boastfulness. Lincoln has a friend (Daniel Roebuck) who turns on him in a non-unendurably heartbreaking scene. This show has no heartfeltness. Mockingbird works out with her obvious fake knee brace and pee coloured hair. Coulson is not an informed and assertive decision maker. This ep has precious little worth getting excited about. Everyone loves Daisy. Mack tries to hand Lincoln over to the ATCU and Daisy shrugs it off. To hell with all these people.
“You need to win.”
“I’ve rarely lost a fight. When I’m sober.”
“That type will talk.”
“I thought we were mates.”
“Those conversations with god go wrong.”
Solace For Tired Feet
“Did anybody get hurt?”
“Your dog ate their homework.”
“This trigger is faster than your fist.”
“You know what that means?”
“You got minecraft on that phone?”
Scream Queens 1x02
“Filthy hand water.”
“Somebody just mowed off a deaf girl’s head in our backyard!”
“Is this scotch? It’s 10am.”
“I’m about to smack you so hard, your tampon will pop out.”
