Made gluten free chocolate and almond brownies. They’re okay.
I didn’t know about Jungle Fowl.
The water timer broke as did a tap and a door handle. So far only the water timer is fixed.
Poison Girl smells nice.
Mads Mikkelsen looks old.
Misha Collins was on ‘CSI’, he couldn’t act there either.
‘Witless’ is dire.
Saw how they make pop tarts - no.
Heard mocking of 90s music video tropes like an old man shirtless for no reason in black and white - hee.
‘American Crime’ season 2 is not very good.

‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ Quote:
On ‘Hollyoaks’: nothing brings happiness to Simone. Grace, Trevor, Ben and Sienna do not have an intellectually enthusiastic plot. Where is Lindsey? Legitimate criticism is that this show bores. Exactly not what you would want. Joe does not want Mercedes and can’t cope. Margaret the Lisa snatcher is found. Grace has a Kate Middleton like wedding dress. Grace sports a huge pair of bra and pants. Esther dresses like a ‘Doctor Who’ villain. Frankie gets into a lesbian app. There is crackling sexual tension between Grace/Trevor/Sienna. Kim and Lisa show up.
“Esther carried my child unlike you who carried your brother’s!”
“Tend to lose badly.”
“Before I fill her in.”
“The guy who blew up in the attic.”
Then came a ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Passion’ in which Jenny Calendar (one half of Diamonds and Pearls) annoys. Giles bores. Jenny isn’t sorry and a computer disk is important. There is no underlying positivity. This was nonsense. Jenny dies. Why wasn’t Giles a suspect? Then came a ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Devi’ in which the duo are in India. The twit Eli shows up. Gabrielle is possessed and vogues. There is bad acting and bad wire-fu a reliable indicator of a bad and problematic ep.
Finally there was a ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ ep ‘The Other Side’ in which there is bad acting, bizarre costumes and no Iolaus. But it does have the nice looking Erik Thomson as Hades. Persephone is taken to the underworld, Charon mutters, Hades sports pleather and truth bias Herc meets his dead wife and children. When Herc sexes up his dead wife, is it necrophilia? Herc feels it is his moral duty to be a political arsonist. Herc wanders around Tartarus and is annoyingly puritanical. Herc has constant aggression and Kevin Sobro’s acting is the equivalent of urine washing. Women are a reward. This was okay. It had no long elegant speeches, just time wasting graphics and fighting. Hades is a god; he has an ignored natural advantage. Herc makes arguments.
“You’re no match for a god.”
