Cleared out a 2005 tape. It began with a ‘New Captain Scarlet’ ep ‘Dominion’ which is full of absurdities and plodding predictability. Black has no cold command and nobody has moral reason. This cancelled show is unmourned. Then came a ‘Charmed’ ep ‘Charmeggeddon’ in which the Avatars have taken over as the sisters are blank-eyed. Brody is malfeasant. This isn’t delightfully imperfect. Brody has ungraciousness and this ep is full of falsifying glosses. This plodding airless ep is entirely without flair. It has a total lack of structure and no moral battle. This was ill-judged.

Then came a ‘Hex’ ep ‘Hole’ in which the antichrist has taken over the school/college. There is no smirky charm just deadly serious bum-numbing lunacy. The writers do not track the psychology of the characters. This once-adored show is now disastrous.

Then finally there was another ‘Hex’ ep ‘Follow The Leader’ in which the posh nerd Leon has gone evil and has a grievance-fest. The ghost whines and Ella wears her slutwear. Why is St John’s Wart so dangerous to Ella? For a kickass slayer, Ella is useless with depressing regularity. Leon walks around the school wearing a t-shirt adverting a famous 1970s porno. In what world is that allowable? This was no cultural relevance. The antichrist bores. This is a poorly written pretence for sex and violence that blatantly disregards sense. The antichrist has pathologised Leon’s Nice Guy tendencies and he is glee-filled in this heartlessness. There is bad VFX and this show is all about the ghastly consequences of female sexuality. People are increasingly imperilled. No.

Best Line:
“Uber cow.”
