On ‘Neighbours’: Karl and Susan fawn over Angus the foul pestilence. Ben is ignored. Nobody cares about the stiffly psychotic Angus and his psychological darkness. Paige fawns over John who ignores her. Paige’s stupidity and selfishness is at brain-aching levels. This show lacks subtlety.
“He gets away with everything.”
On ‘Hollyoaks’: Freddie wants to dump his daughter on Joe. More hideous wallpaper is on display. Freddie is not thoughtful or even haunted about this life choice. Mercedes doesn’t want to parent another of Lindsey’s children. Where is Ben? Grace is in pain and has no gritty stoicism. What relatives is Nico staying with? Where is Dodger? Mercedes and Freddie have lofty indifference to the baby girl and do not want her as their responsibility. No flawless acting choices are on display. Marnie does not have a seductive purr. Grace’s brothers are jaw-droopingly pompous. One targets Celine. Where is Kim? Grace’s bothers don’t button their shirts. This is an emotionally arid show that has a lack of dramatic tension. Sally takes the fall for John-Paul’s stupidity. Scott bores. Myra jiggles and Mercedes drinks. Celine gets her hair ‘done’ and it just looks frizzed. John-Paul yells. There are no coherent relationships and Freddie and Marnie shag, again.
