Saw a bit of ‘King Arthur’ on TV and saw the future ‘Hannibal’ actors who would play Will and Hannibal as two of King Arthur’s knights.
‘Peter Pan Live’ was terrible.
I am reading ‘Zombie Apocalypse! Endgame’.

On ‘Hollyoaks’: Robbie plots against Joe. Teegan obsesses over her ‘real baby’. I feel naught but irritation.
Cleared out a 2005 tape. It began with a ‘Point Pleasant’ ep ‘Missing’ which was about as enjoyable as having a surf board rammed into your face. Jesse accepts that he was born and bred to fight Christina the antichrist. Christina is disgruntled that everyone abandons her. Boyd is luxuriant in his merciless awfulness. Marauding antichrist fighters run around accomplishing nothing. Paula is face-plamingly stupid. Judy is not so amiable. While not glaringly prestigious, this show had the seed of a good idea. Jesse acts like a certifiable lunatic as supernaturalism surrounds him. Christina wants an examination of issues but is rebuffed. Jesse is discouraged from objective inquiry and has about as much emotion as a tableau vivant. Jerk Ben has his wife Meg dragged off to the nut house.
“I’ll put you through that wall, I’m serious.”
“Point Pleasant will burn.”
“By the way my dad is Satan.”
Then came another ‘Point Pleasant’ ep ‘Mother’s Day’ in which dramatic organ chords play. The awful townsfolk need to be held accountable for their actions. Jesse is antithetical to acting. Christina who hitherto denied her destiny gives in due to intimacy being ruined by distrust. Christina’s social situation is made worse by this particular place, mindset and morality. Christina meets her mommy who wants to undo her and snap her neck. Boyd walks off being shot in the face. This was not atmospheric and has no profound contemplation. All Christina’s good identity is eliminated so understandably she goes full on Damien Thorne. None of the goodies’ are venerable and have no qualms over ritual murder. This was overstretched.
“You remember me? The one who’s still alive.”
“You left a long time ago.”
“This is a family thing!”
“You do understand you’re the antichrist don’t you? The guy mom’s got you praying to? Not a fan.”
“I just had the most interesting conversation with one of your colleagues. When he wasn’t screaming, he was telling me all about your little plan.”
“I’m here to kill the child of the beast.”
Finally there was the 2002 movie ‘Star Trek: Nemesis’ in which Tom Hardy plays Shinzon a clone of Picard’s. This trend proof flop nearly killed the Trek franchise. Shinzon leads a coup on Romulus. Troi and Riker wed. Data and Picard get way too much screen time. Data sings Irving Berlin songs and Picard drives a dune buggy. B4 (yet another Data like android) shows up. Admiral Janeway has a cameo to show off her rotten acting and her implacable annoyingness. Picard makes war jokes. The reboot was needed to reinvigorate the franchise. This film is proof positive of Patrick Stewart’s marauding ego. There are Remans and Shinzon needed pastoral care service and impartial advice. Riker gets command of the Titan, Ron Perlman is in this, there are dodgy sexual politics and the petulant Shinzon wears a fetish outfit that almost makes you overlook his rotten teeth and terrible acting.
