Queen For A Day
The case continues to be irreducibly complex. Wolf makes a murder all about him. Predictably Wolf persists in doing bad things. What about Jessica's sister? Maya has infinite patience for crap. Matthew lingers and the stalker lurks. Wolf has no moral objection as the mob enforcer who he owes 75K (plus interest) to lurks.
There is no assessment of suitability of Wolf, Maya or the case. The orange bimbo lurks. Wolf spews cruel ripostes. Problems are concealed. People discuss the jacket. When will Wolf face a final downfall? Wolf projects strenght. Maya wants to talk to Sevvy. Wolf has fear of critics.
Sevvy does nothing to improve his reputation. There are grave possibilities. May has obsessive focus. This was inherently dark. Sevvy does desperate denial. Maya has profound questions. Wolf has intense scorn. When will Wolf's front teeth fly out his a**hole?
Wolf needs to shut up. He's all ambition run wild. CJ lurks. Maya does the moral standard for the world act. Sevvy has a negative image. Wolf skirts consequence totally and is combative. Maya has a strong sense of purpose. What's SID? There is foreboding. Wolf is staggeringly arrogant. This was not an era defining show. But is is very good. Was the jacket planted with intentionality? And who planted it?
Who bears culpability for Jessica's murder? Wolf blasts the LAPD. Sevvy offers 18 million dollars to find the real killer. There are dramatic complexities and covert creepiness. Gabe's out of jail. Gabe has cracked and has abject desperation and intense suspicion.
Wolf is an absolutely infuriating really unpleasant character with no moral qualms. Maya bothers people. Wolf finds money, lots and lots of money, which he steals and goes to a bookie with. He promptly loses it all.
The LAPD strike back at the boney Maya. Gabe and the 1st wife shag. Maya knows about the orange bimbo. Wolf gets dunked in his own swimming pool and loses a toe to his mob debt enforcers. Wolf has a good cry. The 1st wife plots. The orange bimbo/Loni quits. The stalker closes in.
“You're lying! As usual!”
“Got himself murdered”
“Look for a good funeral home. Not in the valley!”
“Got himself killed.”
“We all want to be wrong.”
“A case we can't win.”
“People seeing green.”
“Bring out the crazies.”
“Swear before god to every word.”
“My only friend.”
“Done telling me how to be.”
“Slow walking my case.”
“Just murderded a man in Maya's living room!”
“I trusted you. Clearly I shouldn't have.”
“I don't believe a word you say. Not anymore.”
“This case isn't a winner.”
“Dead men can't pay.”
“Screw you all.”
This was spectacularly mediocre and poorly acted. 7 of 9 hangs out with a moppet. 7 of 9 runs into people from her time as a drone. This was bad. The drones recall who they once were. There is unrelenting cynicism, dumb comedy and this was a tiresome putrid pantomine.
“Cease this interaction!”
Billionaire Boys Club (1987) Part 4
Joe's girlfriend does a sexy baby voice during her testimony which she overacts as she is an actress. Joe's mother cries on the stand about Joe's harsh father. Joe shunned his mother for 6 years. Joe claims Ron Levin is still alive. He's still convicted. A narrator reveals the then fates of the BBC. Joe's taken up the river to the big house where he remains to this day. This was good.
“What could I do about it?”
“Belief in himself that exceeded his abilities.”
“All the normal things you do when you have a contract signed!”
