It's A Sin 1x03 + Riverdale 5x04 + Castle Rock 2x01&2x02 Reviewed 📦📦📦😡🤬😡🤬😡🤬

It's A Sin 1x03

The wildly untalented Ritchie auditions and shags. Jill mans a helpline – which is more than any of the alleged 'proud' men do. The infected don't go to doctors. Jill is in a show. Colin did a tailoring apprenticeship for 3 years now he works in a copy shop. Jill's show is a 'Les Mis' expy. Colin has seizures. There is a tv soap called 'Chimney Sweep' that is full of overacting. Ash barely features. The Pink Palace lot are rude to Colin's family.

The idiots scorn condoms. An MP (Stephen Fry) lurks in his underpants. Richie ignores all evidence of HIV. Colin is put in a locked ward. Rock Hudson's death is mentioned. Colin's mother is written as an idiot. Colin is locked up via court order as he is dangeorus to others. Which he is. Quarantine him. Richie is a jerk when Colin's diagnosis becomes public. Richie is still oblivious to sense.

Roscoe throws out Colin's stuff. Jill and co involve themselves in Colin's life. What is wrong with quarantine? The acting is laughably bad. Colin goes senile at age 24. Richie has a throwaway life. Ash and Roscoe are clean. Colin got HIV from his former landlady's son. Now they're both dying on the same ward. Colin dies. This was mediocre and Richie dosen't bother to show up for his HIV results. What a jackass he is.

Best Lines:

“I don't want to touch him!”

“Certainly not allowed out.”

“That cesspit.”

“Happy now are you? Happy now?!?”

“Don't go looking for some villain.”

“Public menace. That's what he is now.”

Chapter Eighty: Purgatorio

Archie returns to Riverdale and faces what has become of his humble hometown. Archie has a military/footbal mashup dream. Archie never had unflinching loyalty to Jughead. Archie heads home. The Riverdale sign is burnt, the malt shop is open and Archie shows off his day-glo orange hair in uniform.

Sense is not to be thought about. Toni signgs at a club called White Wyrm. Archie's dyed hair is dumb. Toni sings and Betty is an FBI agent with a 'Silence Of The Lambs' knockoff plot. Betty talks to a Dr Starling. What did she do wrong? Oh she got captured by TBK for 2 weeks.

TBK got away – is he or she the big bad for season 5? This was not noteworthy. Betty has a man and a cat. Veronica has a husband named Chad. This is not noteworthy or remotely interesting. This does viewers a disservice. Jughead has drink and girlfriend and writing issues. Archie fought with everybody. Jughead is washed up and fat.

Cheryl and Toni are exes. Cheryl has cracked up. Why is Archie absolutely forgiven for all his crap? Hiram slimes. People convienently forgot Archie's crap. Jughead was abandoned by his friends for years. Cheryl is a maple grove obsessed reculse. What happened behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. Toni has a baby.

Cheryl cries. Archie's house isn't sold just rented out. Archie rang Betty first? What a piece of crap he is. The gym is ruined. The town is more threatening. The firestation is burnt out. There is no funding and the town is lawless and it has 1 cop and an overgrown park. Only the poor and stray rabid dogs remain. There is no bus, but Archie arrived on a bus! Why does Toni stay in town? Hiram wants to build a turnpike to a new rich person town. Archie's old house is trashed.

This was botched. Toni is finally invited to the booth. There are negative impacts. This was punitive and full of stupidity and it was a massive failure. New boring characters lurk. This was complete crap. Archie has impunity and is disingenuous. This was full of blunders. Who gets into a truck with a skeleton tied to it? Archie doesn't regret the damage he has done.

Best Lines:

“Migrating serial killer.”

“The trashbag killer.”

“I've seen the movie with Helen Mirren.”

“Painful horrific fates.”

“Doomed to a life of unhappiness.”

“Do you regret that?”

“Serial killer brother.”

“What's wrong with your life?”

“Toxic relationship.”

“Only thing you care about anyway.”

“Rich folk.”

“See if any of them actually came.”

“Probably going to regret asking.”

“Where is everybody?”

“Sketch alley.”

“Bad things happen here after dark. They call this the lonely highway.”

“Why destory an entire town?”


“To her friends, not that she has many.”

“I'm perfectly fine, do I appear to be otherwise?”

Let The River Run

Is this a dark multiverse? Annie Wilkes is in Castle Rock. What was in the box in her flashback? Annie likes pigs and steals pills. She steals anti-psychotics and has a daughter named Joy. Annie moves form state to state and sings. Salem's Lot is seen and mentioned. How does Annie have a licence plate collection? She uses a fake name. Shawshank reopens. Lizzy Caplan and Tim Robbins star. 3/4 of the season 1 cast are gone without explanation.

Ace Merrill lurks. There is a trash to treasure place called the Emporium Galorium which deals with scrap, surplus and sundries. We see a trainline. Ace was originally played by Kiefer Sutherland. There are race issues in Salem's Lot because of Somali refugees. There are no vampires or needful things. There is talk of community and business centre being built in Salem's Lot.

Annie is young and thin. Ace is a motel landlord. Ace has dimestore hood friends. Joy wants friends. Annie is right to call Castle Rock a bad place. Annie is hired as a temp RN. She uses a fake name and ID. She works in Salem's Lot. Castle Rock is apparently full of junkies and the hospital has a locked drug room. What'll happen to Joy? There is a cold chain storage room. The Merriil's scare the cops. Pop Merrill is a bad man (Robbins).

Joy makes friends and has no phone. There is weird decor in town. Is there an observatory at the motel? Ace is on to Annie. Who is Joy's father? Annie never blinks. Annie has a laptop? She is wanted by the FBI for murder. Who'd she kill? Annie does good work according to Dr H. Pop is Dr H's adoptive dad and he is sick. Dr H went to Harvard. Ace starts trouble. Annie steals and Dr H unwisely helps her.

There is dwindling interest. Annie is grim faced. There is chaos and madness in this uninteresting endeavour. Annie lies. Joy gets a phone from her friend. Ace confronts Annie so she kills him with an ice cream scoop! There is blood and something gets out of a construction site. This is not incredibly efficient.

Best Lines:

“To the laughing place.”

“Who'd want to leave you?”

“You'd be wise not to bring that up again.”

“All the damn junkies.”

“We don't even get a thank you.”

“I got you some 2 towns ago.”

“No heroes. No real men.”

“Searchers and settlers.”

“Even her own daughter looks afraid of her.”

“She's running from something.”

“Awful false thing that passes as life.”

“Make you trash! Their trash!”

“Blood on christmas!”

“Some KKK sh*t.”

“This town is not a good place...he's the roach you can see, the rest are in the walls.”

New Jerusalem

Annie fell down a big whole of weird. Didn't the construction team notice the big hole of weird? Annie climbs down a storm drain. What on earth has she found? We see the Marsten House!!! How does Annie have a truck? She lost her necklace. Who's Chris? Does Ace have a brother? There is an accident and a flashback to 1994.

Why did Pop help refugees? Castle Rock once had satanists. Pop looks for Ace. Dr H learns stuff about Annie from Joy. Annie cleans Joy's teeth. Pop fostered and later adopted 2 refugee kids. There is an appopriate level of seriousness. Didn't anybody notice the big hole of weird? Annie's necklace will come back into play at some point I'm sure? What killed the junkie and one of Abdi's men? Who is the axe wielder?

Joy figures out Siri. Pop's on to Annie. There is a flashback to 2014. Annie stirs the pot. Moths flap. Ace nearly burning Dr H's house down in 2x01 goes unremarked or noticed. Annie drawn to dark places.

Best Lines:

“Heroin junkies.”

“Witch groupies.”

“Made a bad deal with the wrong hombre.”
