Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire Ep 6 Review

Thrilla in the Villa
Krod and co get turned into dogs to thwart the traitor's plan. Like all their other plans, it is a bad idea. The traitor is not who they thought.. Dongalor and Barnabus show up to gloat. Somehow the evil duo have got the Eye moved into Ralph's house. Barnabus literally acts as a footstool for his boss before the evil duo are sent falling out a window. The day is saved. Aneka does forward rolls in her stripperific outfit. Will there be a season 2? I wouldn't object. This was okay.

Harper's Island Ep 5 Review

Thwack

Gigi the yappy dog is running lost in the woods. Awwww. Everyone thinks Lucy (the charbroiled bridesmaid) left the island for some reason. Shea fails to watch her child. Thomas lets it be known that he doesn't trust Henry. Trish lets it be known that Thomas' trophy wife is banging her stepdaughter's husband. Thomas broods. Abby learns her daddy has a wall o-crazy about Wakefield. A scarred loony menaces Trish and Thomas in the woods. The dead vicar's body is found and Thomas gets his in a public setting. So now everyone knows that a killer is loose. This was good but who rigged up the elaborate chandelier death trap? Someone who watched 'Saw' one time too many?

Best Lines:
"The other day I nearly got killed and no-one noticed."

"I thought he hated Jimmy."
"I thought he hated most people."

Torchwood Children of Earth: Day One Review

This was dull with a lot, too much, of plot set up. New characters, way too many of them, overwhelm the show. When did 'Torchwood' turn into 'Spooks'? Jack looking hotter than ever meets a doctor who turns out to be a prat. A woman named Lois goes to work for the civil service and conveniently has access to top secret goings on. Meanwhile the 456 make contact, again. Meanwhile after all the focus on Gwen and her personal life in season 1&2, Jack and Ianto get some focus on theirs. Jack turns out to have a daughter named Alice. Meanwhile Ianto has a chavvy sister, who having learnt about his relationship with Jack asks: "Have you gone bender?"

The 456 mystery really doesn't grab. The new characters are all morons who annoy. Gwen turns out to be pregnant. The government issues a kill order on Torchwood for unclear reasons. An annoying woman and her goons try to kill off the team. The first episode did not grab me at all, it was annoying and stupid.

Best Line: "This whole city talks about you."
