Lidl gluten free pizza - mediocre.

Organic sparkling Elderflower - okay.

I will review ‘American Horror Story: Coven’.

I read the ‘Alien’, ‘Aliens’ and ‘Back To The Future’ novelizations a few years ago and they were okay.

Cleared out a 2006 tape. It began with a ‘Torchwood’ ep ‘Captain Jack Harkness’ in which Jack and Tosh end up in the 1940s. There is terrible acting and so much talking. This was perfectly inadequate. Then came another ‘Torchwood’ ep ‘End of Days’ in which Jack’s team turn on him and the rift fractures. There are no moral dilemmas just people acting stunningly self-important and this was numbingly empty. Gwen is selfish and neurotically vulnerable and boisterously platitudinous. This was all sameyness and Jack striding around like a prophet in the wilderness. This had no rawness or intensity. Jack pisses off and his team didn’t even care.

Then came a ‘Supernatural’ ep ‘Crossroad Blues’ in which a crossroads demon is sinister. In latter seasons, they were made unrecognisably jolly and lusty. This was not of profound importance. Recall when this show had an air of unease?

Best Lines:
“That always ends good.”

“She ain’t running fast enough.”

Then there was an ‘SG1’ ep ‘The Quest part 2’ in which Adria menaces the team and kidnaps Daniel. People walk around cheap sets and yap. This had no deathless images or minute detail. This was not richly sophisticated or infinitely complex.

Best Line:
“Why do I bother?”
