“The internet is not good for you.”

‘Valley of the Sasquatch’ trailer

Roasted squash broccoli, toasted seeds salad - okay.
Madeleines coquilles - too dry.
Cocktail truffles - okay.
Steak burgers - yum.

Remember the 1988 ‘A Very British Coup’?

My review of ‘The Doll Collection’ is delayed.

I won’t review ‘The Forgotten Room’.

‘Great British Railway Journeys’ Quote:
“So English hobby.”

On ‘Hollyoaks’: Patrick’s will leaves everything to Maxine. Sienna is bitter. Maxine is all dolled up for the will reading. What is with her eye-searingly hideous outfits? The new family give no indication of emotions or a personality. Jade isn’t dying. Sienna and Nico dwell pruriently on Maxine’s imposture. Is Patrick rolling around the land plotting? There are glaring contradictions of sense. Somebody should murder Nancy. Where is Silas these days? Diego likes Myra’s sexual durability. There is a tango night in the sailor town pub. Sienna and Maxine can’t have calm dialogue. Where is Maxine‘s child? I think Maxine is a dead woman walking. Fake Lisa makes out with her fake brother.

Best Lines:
“His 200,000 pound flat.”

“Show the power of your manhood.”

“Dim little chav.”

I cleared out a 1997 tape. It began with a ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘The Puppet Show’ in which sense was heavily absent and the school has a talent show.

Best Line:
“Redrum! Redrum!”

Then there was an ‘Earth: Final Conflict’ ep ‘The Scarecrow Returns’ in which there is bad CGI, people wear what look like pervy lab coats and mortal danger tightens around people. This was overreaching. Then there was an ‘X Files’ ep ‘Redux part 1’ in which Mulder isn’t dead and talks in language only just avoiding paranoia. Scully’s story isn’t a soulful croon.

Finally there was a ‘Millennium’ ep ‘Jose Chung’s Doomsday Defence’ in which Jose is back tangling with Frank Black and a nefarious cult. This was good overcoming the show’s notorious problems.

Best Lines:
"All right, my gun jammed.”

“Nostradamus nutball.”
