‘The Flash’ season 3 promo
Barry is smug and calls Wally “Kid Flash” and kidnaps Snow. Someone runs around in an ugly Flash costume. Thawne is locked up and where is Wells?
‘Scream Queens’ season 2 promo
“Your parents must have had a sense of humour.”
“Not really. No.”
Raw Chocolate Mulberries -nice.
Dulce De Leche chocolate loaded with salted popcorn pieces - no.
Spiced beef - okay.
‘Bullet To The Head’ (2013) was ridiculous.
Saw the ‘Elementary’ ep with the rough looking Reed Diamond, John Shea and Michael Esper. It was no good.
Recall Rock Lords? Or the Princess Of Power Crystal Falls playset which was supposed to be a refreshing water wonderland for She-Ra and her friends? It was actually a lump of ugly pink plastic. Recall the Fisher-Price medical kits? Or Glitter Batons? Or The Heart Family toys? I saw photos of the He-Man Eternia playset. It was HUGE. Ah 80’s toys.
‘April Fool’s Day is also known as ‘Die Horror Party’.
Anna is coming back to ‘Days of Our Lives’.
It is a shame that the unofficial guide to the 1970s ‘Survivors’ is out of print.

On ‘Neighbours’: Brennan is straight up baffled. Ned is ordered to leave town by Steph. Brennan is a legend in his own mind. Toadfish is rude to Saint Steph. Why? Cos he is a tool. Xanthe’s friends and mother don’t want to know her. Xanthe has a shell shaped handbag. There is no reassurance that Angus will ever leave. There is no fat Terese and her titanic feud. One is despairing at how bad, lamentable and irredeemably puerile this is.
“Their dodgy charms.”
On ‘Hollyoaks’: Mercedes’ wedding dress is skanky. John-Paul shows up, Celine’s dress looks like it is from 1980 and Lindsey’s bastards feature. Joe listens to Joanne’s persuasive evidence that Mercedes is no good. There is a tacky caravan trip to the wedding. Mercedes’ balloon animal lips are pursed. The double wedding comes to its logical end. This is the stuff of ridicule. Joe breaks Mercedes’ heart by not even bothering to show up. Joe will never revive, restore or reconstruct his reputation after this. Joe is an ass. This was not a life-affirming experience. This was not gauzy storytelling, nor was it incredibly fascinating. Joe is slithery and cannot be over-vilified enough. More pungent terms could be applied to him. He’s become fairly chilly.
Cleared out a 2005 tape. It began with a ‘Battlestar Galactica’ ep ‘Kobol’s Last Gleaming part 2’ in which Sharon justified, Helo is a moron, the president causes crap, nasty people annoy, the stupid pregnancy plot kicks off, Apollo is smug, there are visions and Adama gets shot. This left one deeply dissatisfied.
Then came a ‘Stargate Atlantis’ ep ‘Before I Sleep’ in which Weir is the focus so don’t bother. Why didn’t they stick with the original Weir actress Jessica Steen? The Gate Builders are cast in a particularly sinister light.
Then came ‘Point Pleasant’ which was the pilot ep of the series of the same name. There is a silly title card and a sudden violent storm washes in more than the tide. James Morrison and Aaron Paul (and his mullet) guest star. Evil has found the perfect town cos Christina is the anti-Christ! This was dull and full of systematic rejection.
“I volunteer. I like the shirt.”
“Do me eyes.”
“Setting stuff on fire. Very pagan.”
Finally there was a ‘Desperate Housewives’ ep ‘Come in Stranger’ and I say no to their psychosocial drama and their more or less obligatory issues. I do not care.
