Anyone recall Heinz steamed puddings? Biarritz bars? Orange Viscounts? Haunted House pasta in a tin? Smash? Supermarkets having an entire aisle devoted to Soda Stream cordials? French Brad pizzas? Strawberry Pepsi?

Anyone else have a relative who gives unwanted insanely aggressive ‘help’ and unwanted ‘advice’?

WTF are Herbal Womb Detox Pearls?

So ‘House of Cards’ got a 5th season. Shrug.

Cleared out a tape from 2002. It began with a ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Rogue’ in which the clex is undermined by Clark’s lies and a crazy cop. Victoria lurks with her bad acting and annoying mien. Chloe and Lana have no gratefulness. The colour scheme is very red. Jonathan Kent has a cultural reluctance to see sense. Clark wears too much corduroy. The Kents are inherently elitist. The sets look like an 80s social welfare office.

Best Line:
“Such negative feelings.”

Then came a season 6 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Once More With Feeling’ which was the musical ep. This was the sole highlight of the disastrously limited season 6. This show is in odd looking widescreen. There is bad singing and angry glares. This ep is actually horrendous with little popular resonance. The plot is preposterous and self-consciously hip post-modernism. The teen angst BC doesn’t coalesce and this has the stink of desperation.

Best Line:
“His penis got diseases.”

Then there was an ‘Angel’ ep ‘Fredless’ which was not productive or constructive, it had no power or subtlety and was not incredibly authentic. Finally there was a ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘Crazy’ in which Jarod did more redressing of grievances. This lacked credibility and was unwatchable due to bad tracking. This ep prompted dissatisfaction and was of a reprehensible nature. There is no reasonable rationale to the litany of falsehoods and deceptions that Jarod carries out. This was neither extraordinary or emotive.
