Say Yes

A drag queen shows up. There is sex and Sam is emotionally brutalising and demeaning. This is shockingly awful. Ruth is willing herself to love her boring boyfriend. A magician shows up. I don't care about Ruth's hopelessness or isolation. This was not horribly credible. This was amazingly boring.


Cherry explodes in wrath and this display of sloth bores. Ruth overvalues her opinions and reacts to things out of any sense of reasonable proportion. There are ugly confrontations. Shelia's boring. Ruth keeps on bringing chaos and disorder. There is no creativity, intelligence or subtlety.


This was deadly serious. Sam is fractious. Shelia's rude. This was not genuinely insightful. This was annoying and irrelevant pointless absurdity. There are 80s cameras and season 3 has gone profoundly wrong. Ruth is chronically offended. This show has suffered irrevocable damage. Carmen gets a job offer. Debbie's a slut. Ruth is inherently disloyal. Chad the hot valet is seen. The 'casino' exterior looks like a suburban swimming pool. Ruth is an intolerable burden. There is no suitably epic music.


Best Lines:

“That is a pile of clothes and not Shelia in the corner?”


“Gambling gone very wrong.”


“How long has it been since you washed that?”


“About $200 east.”


“Bob Mackie reject.”


“Cheers to our dead grandfathers.”


“No storylines, no drama.”


“Loathsome people.”


“I'm too high to leave the room.”



Freaky Tuesday

There is a montage of Tamme's back issues. GLOW's contact is extended. Bash is thoughtless. Sam's useless daughter shows up and she wrote a screenplay. Geena Davis looks puffy. Tensions increase between Sam and Bash and Bash and everyone. People treat each other with astonishing cruelty.


People switch characters for a show. There is finally some actual GLOWing. Sam is the ref. Debbie does Zoya and Bash is gleefully certain of himself, due to a lifetime of being listned to.


There are zealous hostilities and Bash coerces people and punishes them for saying no. Bash is uncomprehending. This was a sinful waste of time. Carmen does Welfare Queen and someone else does a nun. Shelia wears normal clothes and plays Liza Minnelli as a wrestling character whilst never letting go of her martini glass. This was grim and impossibly strange. With deliberate intent Bash talks against others and he manipulates and pressures people.


Best Lines:

“Acts of a sexual nature.”


“His daughters wouldn't let me speak at the real funneral.”


“Cry in the dark with strangers.”


“My father figure died this week.”


“Look at this crowd.”

“What crowd?”


“Plain toast girl.”


“One I get this skirt off, you're in for it!”


“Girls like you used for toothpick in Russia!”


“I'm your daddy now!”


“She's down, yet again!”

Clique 2x06

I missed 2x05. Jack is bullied by Holly and Rachel. Why does Holly get away with attempting to murder Jack? Holly and everyone else are careless smug contemptible prats. Jack's brother is an ass. Why is Holly forgiving the woman who lied about Jack? Nobody noticed Rachel who escaped from the loony bin? Why is everyone overlooking the fact that there is nothing to put right? She LIED! Holly is a moron, she believed Jack's lying brother. Did anyone say sorry to Jack for the terrible treatment he has endured? Holly hears a story of abuse and attempted murder and does nothing. There is obvious derangment. How did Jack swim back to land afte being forced off a fishing trawler at sea? Why is Rachel tolerated by Holly? The liar did LIE and she did RUIN LIVES. There is bad bad acting and it all fizzles out. This was horribly bad. Series 1 was good, this WAS NOT!


Best Lines:

“You're not very bright are you?”


“No one's listening to you anymore.”


“Sad man march.”

Wolf King

There is no anger or unease. People talk about Douglas Coe's sons. He also has a daughter, but nobody seems to care. The writer has growing belligerence about the Fellowship. Douglas Coe died a number of years ago, oddly this wasn't mentioned back in 1x01. This was genuinely boring. The writer sees malfeasance everywhere. There is forced politeness. Is there a troubling side to the Fellowship? The writer comes across like a reddit conspiracy loon. Trump is seen. He is mentioned as being Presbyterian. There are hints of sinister elements or are there? There is another take on the writer's motives: $$. This was an absolute mess.


Best Lines:

“Left the earth.”


“Greatest man of war.”


“Change my ways now.”


“Who gets in a dust up with the pope?”


“Heart of gratitude.”
