Dance Dance Revolution
Ramon's ballet is trashed by critics. People cut class with no punishment. This was not good enough. Where are Cassie's family? Bette needs painkillers. June stares into the abyss of getting a job. June's not exceptional or talented. Oren's aggressive and bullish. This is not a great narrative.
There is no intellectual ambition. Shane doesn't mourn over the love that couldn't be. Nabil has an uncertain nature. This was an absolute clunker. The ballet has sleazy costumes. This was very, very dull and there is endless sex and the weary plodding progress of time. Oren is wilfully obscure. Oren wears tight underpants. There is the utter nothingness of existence.
Nabil approaches every line as though he's doing Henry V. Bette's injury is unsustainable. There's a level of distrust with Ramon who shows off his cruellest aspects. The students are controlled by society's expectations. There is abjection. Ramon disdains his dancers and has animosity and yells.
This was inadequate. There is no usefulness or relevancy. Bette is so earnest. Ramon blithey insists on his own genius and is cruel and arbitrary. This is an appalling vista. Ramon smashes a mirror in a rage. Ramon has a catastrophic impact on people. June babbles.
Caution is urged. Ramon gravely offends and is a perpetrator. Bette points out they wear pointe shoes invented in the 18th century. June questions her own ability. Madam and the self interested Ramon punish students if they don't behave. Ramon plays a cruel game. Ramon is an awful swine. There is randomness and this was absolute nonsence.
Ramon thinks he's more important than he really is. Ramon does planned provocations. Ramon is appalling and has failed in his endeavours. This was whimsical. Nobody wants to address grievances. Nobody reduces tensions and cuts negative impacts. Nabil is so rude.
This was done incredibly seriously. Why is there such unwavering support for Ramon? Caleb shags madam – oh gorss. One notes grimly how infuritating this is. TPTB are increasingly desperate. This was outlandish. Oren eats in the toilet – hazardous hygiene. Oren insults Shane. Oren is cruel and absurd and has no logical thought process and smirks at his own 'wit'.
There is bad singing and Bette thinks her rough arse friend can get her pain pills and he does. This was not very plausible. There is an abyss for Bette. This was not entirely satisfactory. This was an unmitigated disaster and an epic failure. June is quite sad and there is bad acting. June steadfastly refuses to stop doing that stupid fake accent. People dream. Ramon screams at Bette. Ramon hooked up with Cassie. Bette's sister is a selfish bitch and dresses like a hooker.
People are deplorable. Dancers are desperate to get rid of the horrible, dangerous, unscrupulous Ramon. Bette taunts Shane. Ramon is a pig. June's mother threatens to disown her. Ramon tantrums. Bette dances on a fracture. June is cut off. Bette prances in her underwear and she and Oren do it on Shane's bed. Icky. Sick. Ramon is a tangible threat and launches a counterattack and Ramon causes serious despair.

Mother Love (1989) part 1
Diana Rigg died and so the BBC finally repeat this drama, it was originally 4 parts but now it is 2. There are BAD child actors. There are dated clothes. Angela is to marry mummy's boy Kit. Angela's family are tools. Kit's awful mother Helena (Rigg) has no job and lives on lifelong alimony from her ex Alex. Angela learns Kit lies to his mother and throws a strop. Angela needs a good smack.
Helena is crazy. Racist comments are made about Japan. Alex yells at one of his bastards and is played by David McCallum. Alex's 2nd wife was a mistress and brushes off cheating and lying and how it took 2 years for Alex to ditch Helena and marry her. Helena's skidekick George is in on Alex's lies too. Angela correctly points out that all this lying to Helena will end badly. Rigg is filmed in badly made up closeup. Helena's maiden name was Batt, no comment. Why didn't Alex get custody of Kit from Helena?
Angela's wedding dress is hideous. Alex can't get off his ass and go to the wedding. Kit and Angela are shovel faced bores. Kit and Angela suddenly have a baby. Helena acts like she is over the hill at 50. Alex calls the new born baby a fatty. Charming. Alex gets a knighthood. Ruth being compared to Diane Arbus is hilarious. Alex's house is full of people, noise and fun – sounds like hell. Helena finds out about George's deception and bad things go down. Alex is terrible. Angela talks all the time, hag be quiet. Alex and Ruth's kids were brats. This was okay. But like all cheating lying scum Alex and Ruth justify themselves.
“The way that tart with a camera took my husband.”
“Serious intent all over her face.”
“No difficult moments?”
“The bluff Kit can't afford to call.”
“Never forgiven him or me.”
