Perkin claims the throne is his. He ignores Lizzie. Maggie Pole stirs the pot. Perkin's equally stupid wife and child show up. Perkin is made to clean up dung. There are false dreams and this sheds any veneer of escapism. Perkin embraces the extreme and annoys. The duchess plots and Maggie really is stupid. Henry's eye strays. There is a plot to rescue Perkin. King Richard III's ill-fated queen Anne is mentioned. Lizzie is stupid. Henry is paranoid. Perkin throws away the chance of mercy. Oh those wacky Yorks. This was stupid.
“Is this your kin?”
“Try to take what is yours.”
“Taking that from her.”
“You must not mind.”
“I will have the throne of England!”
Maggie Pole plots treason. Lizzie lies more. What became of Perkin's child? Henry VII learns his mother had the Princes In The Tower killed. Which is rubbish. Richard III did it. There is babble about a curse and a blight on the Tudor male line. Henry VII beats up his mother in full view of the court. Maggie's dumb and Teddy's a fool. Everyone overlooks that Edward IV killed the rightful King to take the throne. Lizzie plots. Perkin is a fool. Maggie Pole plots treason more. Perkin's idiot wife plans to be queen and plots. Maggie Pole plots to kill her husband. Lizzie judges and fights to keep the life and family she has made. Henry VII is sad. Lizzie protects what is hers and ends the York line. Maggie Pole is a twat. She has a son? She does not think of him.
Traitors are busted. Teddy is tricked because he is an idiot. Teddy and Perkin are executed. Shut up Maggie Pole. Perkin won't stop being smug even on the block. Lizzie is sick of Maggie's crap. Lizzie is finally a Tudor queen and Maggie wails for Teddy, making me laugh. Wolsey shows up and is in favour. This was okay.
“That child is already dead.”
“Grace of my life.”
“Your wits are so dismally few!”
“A vicious wrong will be set right.”
“Sour whore's tricks.”
“Nursed into his grave.”
“Moved the imposter to be with the idiot.”
“2 York boys with a claim in the one room.”
“It is what is necessary.”
“Armies gather for you.”
“This Tower will be torn open!”
“No one to put on the throne instead of you.”
“You should have left me in France. I wish to Christ I was still there now away from your poison!”
Year Of Hell, part 2
The ship is wrecked and Janeway has absolute conviction and will not be swayed in her stupid decisions. The baddie is thwarted and the continual defeat is undone by time travel or something. Forget never ending fear. 7 of 9 asks pertinent questions and the time ship really looks like Babylon 5. This show is the eternal shame of the franchise. This was better than part 1.
Janeway has moral certitude in her focus on retribution. This was not jammers. Nobody has substantive concerns about Janeway acting contrary to logic. Of course they prevail. Janeway's obsessional thoughts prevents help being offered from any Delta Quadrant race until 2 show up. There is bad burn makeup. This was okay. There is a sequel setup; which never happened. Shouldn't Annorax be centuries dead? Annorax's wife looks 20 years younger than him.
“Making himself difficult.”
“Museum of lost histories.”
“Taste is irrelevant.”
“Leaving this damn cloud!”
“Gone from history.”
“Burden of memory.”
“Both the brigs have been destroyed.”
“One year I'd like to forget.”
The Trial Of Christine Keeler (2019) 1x01
There is no societal significance. It's 1962 in this BBC1 drama. Christine was 19 and Mandy Rice-Davies 18. James Norton and Emilia Fox and Ben Miles star. There is yelling over bread slices. Christine has a stalker and Dr Stephen Ward has teen girls in his sway.
Mr and Mrs Porfumo lurk. Ward is a sleaze. The sleazy media sleaze. Profumo is a Baron. There is dancing in a topless cabaret. Christine is stupid. Ward's friendly with a Russian. Mandy is not worthy of being brought to posh john's house. There is sexism and MI5 wonder.
This was really stupid and people are deliberately hostile. There is decadence and a bitter process. This was utterly unimportant. Things will have a distressing impact on Christine. Mandy cries about her pony. There is gunfire and a taxi driver sits on his arse as a man attacks 2 women.
“What do you think Eton's for?”
“We all retire when we marry.”
“Never seemed a price to pay. Or so I thought.”
“Have a sniff.”
“It's already later.”
“Keeps interesting company.”
“Chaos seems to follow you wherever you go.”
“Lots and lots of money.”
“Ask the Germans if ground troops matter.”
“2 people. Lights out. 10 minutes.”
“I'm coming for you!”
Will they reach the result they want to achieve? Peter is overly hostile and has still not apologised for the terrible things he said about Neal. Peter could lose his job if they don't get the Pink Panthers. Oh boo you whore. Peter tells Neal what he ought to think about things. Peter still does not apologise. Mozzie bores. Mozzie has a wife? There are flashabcks of Mozzie we don't need. Mozzie and co cause public mischief. There are no grave quesitons. This was bad and the fast forward button was used. Why are we meant to find career criminal Mozzie adorable? The PP plan to target the Federal Reserve and steal half a billion.
“Not the gentleman thieves they used to be.”
“Pulling a sweetheart con.”
Piss off Liz-bot. There are various acts of stupidity. Peter, Jones and Diana badmouth Neal. Peter still hasn't apologised. There are dumb motives, actions and feelings. Peter never forcefully denies acusations against Neal. A big gun is seen. Nothing is taken exceptionally seriously. This was often unsatisfying. There is bad acting. There is no conscientiousness or assiduousness. There is no regard for Neal. People dislike and distrust each other in new ways. There is consternation. Neal hasn't done any art, original or otherwise lately. I used the fast forward button. Keller and his spud face and buck teeth is useless. There is deep misery. Peter tries to be tough.
