The water timer broke as did a tap and a door handle. So far only the water timer is fixed.

Misha Collins was on ‘CSI’, he couldn’t act there either.

‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ Quote:
“We’ll never make it to the throne of England. Not in this generation.”

On ‘Neighbours’: Brad is a horrible father and ignores Ned, his son by Beth. There is bad acting and public perception is against Paul, again. Lauren cosies up to Ned. Mark yells. Brad whines about being publicly shamed for his adultery. Where is Kyle? Nate’s back. Paige fawns over John Doe.

Best Line:
“It’s too petty.”

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.

Best Lines:
“You were a lesbian for like a week!”

“Esther carried my child unlike you who carried your brother’s!”

“Sister Midnight.”

“Tend to lose badly.”

“Before I fill her in.”

Cleared out a 1999 tape. It began with a ‘Charmed’ ep ‘Wedding From Hell’ in which plot illogic is blithely explained. There are sisterly and creative tensions. There is bad acting, rubbish villains and ugly clothes. This was very ugly and bad.

Best Lines:
“The dark cloud over the Halliwell household.”

“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.

Best Lines:
“Claim I’m too gloomy.”

“You’re no match for a god.”
