On ‘Neighbours’: Brad is a dishrag. Piper’s formal outfit is horrible: a purple wig and a slutty jumpsuit. Xanthe wears a wildly inappropriate dress. Piper is a liar and a stalker. Terese busts Piper. Why is Brennan policing a school formal? Piper screeches and has significant distress. Tyler whines about being seen as strange and distasteful for dating a 16 year old. Piper is disobliging and has delusional thinking. Brad wants Tyler gone. Why is the formal held during the day in a crap tent?

Brad has no lauded family values. Piper is Tyler obsessed and ruins the formal for Xanthe and Ben. Tyler flirts with the new English teacher Elly. Cold and unstable Piper ruins Xanthe’s dress and attacks Elly in righteous rage. She and her bestial human behaviour is awful and she doesn’t apologise. Xanthe stole $600 for her dress. Piper provokes irritation and hatred. She’s all grotesquery. Tyler has many striking reasons to dump Piper and he does. Piper has no consistency about her. Elly is Susan’s niece and Piper’s new teacher.

Best Lines:
“Tyler’s an adult; he wants to be with one.”

“They keep treating me like I’m a sleaze.”

“Where’s the trust bro?”

“You’re upsetting Piper.”

“That skanky ho!”

On ‘Hollyoaks’: Why are they at school in July? Kim is in hospital. Nico and Peri bully Jade. The stories are blander and less challenging. This was surreal, stupid and deeply ludicrous. There is no hilarious chaos and no inscrutable narrative twists. Is Kim faking her breakdown? Why yes. There is misleading advice and Celine obliging helps Kim. Nobody has a moral compass. There is no moral obligation. Cleo finds another man to treat her badly and make her live within stringent controls. Where is Curtis? Alfie is thick. Lisa is sleazy and sinister. Esther has moral queasiness.

Best Lines:
“That rotten little tart.”

“Better than living out of bins.”

“Which gene pool you swam out of.”
