There are exposition dumps, gaudy imagery and artificial and contrived dialogue. There are contemptible characters, visions, community suspicion, random characters popping up, elf stones and this was unutterably dumb. Where did elves come from? The bizarre plot and world building causes deep confusion. The actors are wooden, a troll seems to be a deformed human and a druid (Bennett) shows up to have long conversations. A thief thieves. Idiot elves pose and a warlock lord is mentioned. This was sad and I won’t bother with anymore.
“Invoking our dead brother. Very subtle.”
“They’re dead. We’re not.”
“There are dark days ahead.”
“The war of the races.”
Bash is less important. Dudley and Elizabeth have endless iterations of the same conversation. Charles has no grasp of history. Mary has the express intention of being stupid.
Mary cannot prioritise, plan, sequence, initiate or rationalise. There is no morality test. Mary is malicious and makes unnecessary problems. Elizabeth fears for her sexual reputation. Claude whines. Destabilising things happen. Mary is gleefully disparaging. There is bad acting and no superlatives for this ep. Lola sulks. Don Carlos is an arse. Amy needs a whipping. Everyone is pathetic.
“Why must the fate of nations be decided in a shared bed?”
“I will not be laid low by any man.”
“Show me your womanhood.”
“Bring the Spaniard before me.”
“Scared people can do terrible things.”
“They’re called frigates.”
“Tire of dying on Scottish soil.”
A Time To Be Born
The gangbanger acts nice. Jake chats with someone. Jana makes it all about her as per usual. Katie won’t shut her mouth. Then she gets sick. Just die bitch.
“Not so stupid.”
“She scared them.”
“You’re a worthless traitor.”
