Tomorrow When The War Began (2016) 1x01
Based on the book. Ellie and her friends go camping in a remote area. There is a mention of hacking. Apparently this got low ratings and there is no sign so far of a 2nd season. Why didn’t they make this tv show a sequel to the movie and adapt book 2? The music is bad and the characters aren’t as good as in the film.

This was insubstantial and full of padding. This was grotty and full of inconsequential filler. Also it was dull and everyone mumbles. Nobody has warmth or humanity. This not gruelling or full of dark chilly nihilism. There are unnecessary scenes with the parents. The invasion force shows up.

The gang see a car with RUN spray-painted on it. There is obvious evidence of an invasion. Apart from the car scene, this ep was a downright embarrassment. Suddenly it is night-time. The acting is bad. Who invaded? Ellie and co’s tarriance in Hell has allowed them to become the maquis.

Best Lines:
“I think we might be at war.”

“Run, run, run, run.”

Fearless 1x03
Emma has no shame. DCS Greenwood is menaced. Emma won’t hand over the SIM card. Emma is nonchalant and has worrying blankness. Emma is paranoiac and uncontrollable. Wouldn’t she be arrested for leaking porn of a murder victim? What does Tony know? There is a mention of sex parties. What happened to Linda and why? What is being covered up? Wild is told to keep the unions sweet.

Emma’s lies end her hopes of fostering. She is sterile due to an abortion. It is obvious that Emma had an ISIS supporter in her house, this doesn’t bother her. ISIS woman smugs. Morally ambiguous types lurk. Jamie Bamber still hasn’t learnt to act since he was Apollo. Emma hangs out with more ISIS types.

Americans stick their noses in. Kevin’s girlfriend killed Linda, it is so obvious. New evidence about how Linda died is uncovered after she is dug up. What are people covering up? Heather is menaced. Kevin is retried. Heather menaces someone. What is going on? Emma shouts. This was mediocre.

Best Lines:
“Complete bollocks.”

“Her theory is actually true.”

“You and your lies.”

“You should piss off.”

“You children stared at in the streets.”

“One of his tarts.”

“I know who you’re protecting.”

“Trying to turn Linda into a whore.”

“I don’t hear you.”

“It’s not deliberate.”

“Trotskyite dickhead.”

Lydia and Alec are to marry. The fact that Jace is apparently Valentine’s son doesn’t seem overly concerning to anyone. Clary demonstrates no insight. She’s sad she and Jace can have no devoir conjugal. Bane prances and stalks Alec like a creepy old man pervert. He issues ultimatums. What happened to Clary going to art school? I hate Simon.

Bane dresses like North Korean heavy. Lydia’s ditched the side plait and is all soft now. There is padding. Why don’t the Clave do a DNA test on Jace and Clary? There is bad VFX. Alec is a jerk and utters not a word of apology. Bane crashes the wedding so Alec ditches Lydia at the altar and does a runner. This was okay.

The runes look like ringworm. The evil vampire is sealed in a coffin and Clary needs to get her out. Where are Lydia’s family after she’s been ditched and dismissed? Jace aka Jonathan Christopher broods. Hodge is evil, with a bold display of ambition. He looks like a drug hoover.

Best Lines:
“I feel weird right now.”

“Maybe she just didn’t want me.”

Leaps Of Faith
Adelaide Kane was in ‘The Purge’, I honestly did not notice. James bothers John Knox’s wife. Darnley wants to marry Keira, she did not exist! Darnley and his mother plot. Lola’s bastard, who never existed, is fawned over. Narcisse rants. Catherine broods. Gideon whines: he never existed! Gideon wants Mary to abdicate and marry him. Totally implausible! Leeza plots. Catherine and Narcisse plot. Where is Conde?

Charles acts like a crazy man. Narcisse serves up Bianca to him to be his mistress. Catherine’s latest poisoning plan goes awry. Where is Bothwell? Leeza is onto Catherine. Leeza uses the term disability. Claude prays. Is Leith really dead? Claude is claimed to have healing powers. A Spanish Cardinal lurks. Claude shrieks at Leeza. James broods. Mary is obsessed with Gideon’s peen. Leeza is caked in fake tan. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“Serpent of a mother.”

“Blessed womb.”

“Spanish hell.”
