On ‘Hollyoaks’: Gabriel’s funeral takes place. None of the Roscoe’s attend. In fact no-one but the McQueen’s attend. Boo bad form Chester. Joe finally shows up. Cue maudlin drama. Myra gets off her ass to return. The McQueens have unremittingly monstrous personalities. Where is Porsche? Robbie is gracelessly the same. Holly is a ho. Cleo moons over Pete. The new family are bafflingly appalling and inessential. Cleo tries to attack Jade cos she is a crazy ruined woman whose mind is slowly cracking. Pete shows his true self to Cleo with startling frankness.

On ‘Neighbours’: Lauren is vile and Brad won’t stop fawning over her. Daniel turns on Paul. Paige is a snot. Josh defends Brad, Piper screams at Brad and Brad still won’t apologise. People hate Paul again. Paul and Terese will hook up I’m sure. Brad’s narrowing of emotion when it comes to the family he threw away unhindered by any guilt is gross. Steph’s big fat fake lips cause personal offence. Josh doesn’t visit his mother. Piper is wretched, Piper cries over her mother nearly dying but she can’t act.

Best Lines:
“Is that how Terese sees it?”

“You just left her there.”

“You made your choice.”

“Getting hostile looks.”

“I’m devastated about Brad’s decision.”

“Acted all understanding.”

I cleared out a 2003 tape. It began with a season 7 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Showtime’ in which everyone is in Buffy’s house. Kennedy hurls herself at Willow. People talk, the low budget is on display, the tracking is bad and Spike won’t wear a damn shirt. This was dull and not the scariest ep of all time.

Best Line:
“I’m bored. ‘Episode 1’ bored.”

Then came a season 4 ‘Angel’ ep ‘Awakening’ in which Cordelia pulls face and Angel becomes Angelus due to a lame twist. Wesley tries to be badass and this was non-interesting.

Then came another ‘BTVS’ ep ‘Potential’ in which Buffy gives speeches, the slayers in waiting bore and I just do not care. Xander comforts Dawn over being ‘ordinary’ in a badly acted scene. This bored.

Best Line:
“The one who isn’t chosen.”

Finally there was another ‘Angel’ ep ‘Soulless’ in which the gang’s stupid idea to make Angel into Angelus backfires. Everyone loves Fred. This was dull.

Best Line:
“He didn’t ask twice.”
