Dear houseguests: you’re clueless about where we keep the plastic bags and about the laundry (twice a week indeed). You’re rude about newspapers, stomp around and talk loudly. You leave doors and the fridge door wide open. You drop things, lie in bed and are incapable of unloading clean things from the dishwasher and putting dirty things in. You had venison soup bought for you but you called it “too peppery” and threw the can in the bin you ungrateful thankless sod. I fixed your umbrella to no thanks and you had the nerve to say “I’m not into recycling.

I don’t think I’ll bother with ‘The Green Inferno’.

I read a horrible ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ casting story.

“One of the most horrific fight scenes Waters choreographed was a Richard III in which Martin Freeman, playing the murderous king, strangled his wife with a telephone cord.”

Cleared out a 2001 tape. It began with a ‘Nash Bridges’ ep ‘Bombshell’ in which his nemesis Tamara strides around to the song Bitch. This was not the slightest bit engaging and has an inability to connect.

Then came a ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Spiral’ in which Glory finally knows Dawn is the key. The gang and their shallow arrogance run from Glory and her minions (one of whom is Wade Andrew Williams). This had really bad sound mixing and no worthiness or intellectual heft.

Best Line:
Seriously dead.”

Then came an ‘Angel’ ep ‘Over The Rainbow’ in which the final arc of season 2 splutters and sees Cordy on another planet or something. Cordy talks and this was a vivid display of how not to make TV. This was not a tribute to the efficiency and efficacy of TPTB. It was a thought paralysing piece of smugness.

Finally there was a ‘Kindred: The Embraced’ ep ‘Bad Moon Rising’ in which Julian wants to increase his newspaper circulation. A Nosferatu vampire lurks in a bush in broad daylight and snatches a baby. The baby’s mother can’t act. The opening credits are nice. Julian’s galpal Caitlin (Kelly Rutherford) broods over him. An annoying reporter lurks and cop Frank shows what a substantial miscalculation his casting was.

All the vampires hang out in Julian’s house. Frank is a moron and I’m taken aback by his bad acting. The Nosferatu use the baby as material de guerre, vampires inflict harm and Sasha and Cash aren’t conciliatory. The Nosferatu rebel which is forgotten. This was good if not stupendously scary. There is stiff upper lip stoicism, subtext, the baddie sows instability and unrest, Lillie plots and Julian (Mark Frankel) broods.

Caitlin’s kitchen is full of garlic. This was a vivifying novelty of a tv show. No one has delicate sensibilities and Julian’s eyes are dark pools of disbelief. Frank is certain of his own rectitude and has a Teutonic love of law and order. Shame he is inept at it. Caitlin has a secret. A Nosferatu female has old fashioned virtue. The baddie has no intellectual or moral strengths only boundless ambition. There is a silly fight scene and Julian shows off vampire sexual mythology to his gratified apostle Caitlin in a sexual ambush. This was not an inexhaustible treasure.

Best Lines:
“She’s a good baby.”

“Our savage form.”

“I hope for your sake you don’t.”

“I’m ashamed of my own clan.”

“The lure of the old ways.”

“Look at you. Living in Julian’s basement.”

“I’ll only drink red.”

“Venture slime.”
