Malcolm X split with his mentor. There was paranoia and slander. Al Sharpton shows up. The NOI wanted to evict Malcolm X. There was shabby behaviour and allegations and Pan Am. There is talk of 5 assassins and was this a 'will nobody rid me of this turbulent preist' situation? Who is William X? This was okay.
“Just about a year left to live.”
“Soften his image.”
“Exalt himself above his teacher.”
“Wanted a showdown.”
“No visible means of income.”
“Wanted back what he helped build.”
“False things said.”
“Reconstruct your life.”
“A lot of people didn't like that.”
“Harsh to look at.”
“Where are they now?”
“In the history books, leave it there.”
“Correcting the historical record.”
“Asking intrusive questions.”
“Of a certain generation.”
There is archival film and talk about a shotgun man with a long rap sheet. There was wrong doing and Cory Booker. The shotgun man lives in New Jersey. There are talking heads. Why wasn't the lectern in evidence? There are accusations about the NYPD and accusations about an arson attack. There is talk of B.O.S.S and undercover work and informants who never testified. Mmmm.
“Hell that he's catching.”
“Sounded like crazy talk.”
“Please keep saying potential.”
“Cos he says so and he got a gun.”
“20 years had gone by.”
“In dire need of protection.”
“It was coming.”
“Death was all over Malcolm.”
“Monitor his behaviour.”
“Thinking he's dangerous.”
“Disappeared into obscurity.”
Malcolm X went to Mecca? There is talk of the FBI suppressing documents. Things are done for no apparent reasons. The alleged shotgun assassin dies and people talk about him. This was okay.
“Well respected elders.”
“It's been talked about.”
“Fissure of seperation.”
“What people claim that he did.”
“Community loves him.”
“Somebody of stature.”
“Time won this one.”
“Own version of events.”
“Dead and gone.”
“Played at compliance.”
“All take, no give.”
“Hero of the community.”
“Made an enemy out of one of its citizens.”
People are in a desperation phase. This was massively, massively awful. This show is obscure and obsolete. Who cares about Adalind? This was about as good as 'Beadle's About'. Who is the father of Adalind's child? This was unswervingly bad. There is no huge affection.
This was ghastly and Wu cops on that something weird is going on. This was superficial. Nick and his slumy assurance bores. There are stock phrases. Adalind has the baby. Nick and Hank gaslight Wu.
“Fake your own death for all I care.”
“You'll never leave.”
The Sound Of Silence
This was unlikely. Straker is judgmental. This was not unsettling just lunatic. Enemies are everywhere. The aliens are enigmatic to the end. Killer UFOs spin in the heavens. SHADO prowls and drills for a war that will defy the imaginaiton. Straker has globe spanning power. This was brittle and terrible. A hobo is bothered by posho horse riders. Soothing words are not uttered.
This was not a defining presence. A dog is bothered due to classism. There is a pitiless rich berk who is abrasive and caustic. This was arduous and full of chaos, decay and the end of some. The poshos have a sense of entitlement. There is a menace. There is ideological rigour and low prestige. There are no cultivated intellectuals. There are syrupy family scenes. The stakes are infinite.
TPTB stifle interest. There is deep mistrust. Straker is trapped by his own ruthlessness. Defiance does not pay. There is nothing left to lose. There is a point of desperation. There are entrenched views in this patchy ep. A posho riles. Aliens have a high prey drive. The poor dog. Certain decisions are made.
Be frightened of everything. Poshos the sort who fall asleep under tables are a fug of mediocrity. This is so boring and it leaves you weary. The poshos are loutish. This was stupid irrelevance. This failed and it was not an important part of cultural history. This was not effervescent. Aliens ominiously loiter. There is a lake and actors covered in cling film which is meant to be hazmat gear. Straker gets fierce indignant. This is trapped in the past. This was hyperactive absurdism. This was turbulent and not even slightly disconcerting.
Straker is taciturn, contemptuous, nasty and somineering. This was not glorious. There is no vulnerability. This was loathsome hypercamp.
“Ran into our favourite hippy again.”
“I'm so confused.”
“Couple of hippies have been living there.”
“Scruffy looking thing.”
“Get the skin team ready.”
Witch Hunt (2020-?) 1x01
This was a subtitled Norwegian drama. A banker uncovers oligarchical splurges. This was not interesting. Hunters lurk. Ida is a trusted and loved CFO when a suspicious invoice lands on her desk. There are disgusting displays of ego.
Ida is indefatigable. The plot is incomprehensible. This was not emotionally resonant. This was not very interesting. Ida faces the ire of the powerful. This was a consummate mediocrity. People lack character and authority. The woes of a ravaged woman bore. This was crude. There are lurid escapades and this strains credibility.
This was not quietly propulsive. There are machinations and recriminations. This leaves you rueful. There is no intensity. This does not resonate. The plot is labyrinthine. This was not instantly or superbly dramatic. This was not beautifully crafted. This was a nuisance.
Dark ends lead to disgrace. There is gloom and this was not exhilarating. There is no charm. This is patience sapping. The characters are like a pack of pub bores. This was all barmy follies. This is not an erudite milieu. There is sweaty terror. There is no cruel tension. People are miserable. This was not complex emotional storytelling. Obvious cards have no finesse. There are loathsome people with bitterness, arrogance, contempt, pain, passion, lunacy and abominations. They outrage moral decency.
This was not viciously entertaining. This was not utterly charming or relentlessly thrilling. There is adversity and this was not a charming account. This was grim fare. Men cross the moral line of acceptable behaviour. Ida loses loyalty. This lacks depth. There is shamelessness. Ida is repeatedly beset. There are misanthropic collapses into rancour and chaos.
There is a trauma reponse. This was pretty crazy and not avant garde drama. This was grating and cringe. This was so bouji. This was not a precious thing. This was a destabilising force in Ida's life.
“Do the two of us have a trust issue?”
“I'm not out for trouble.”
“The sh*ttest students from the police academy go into Economic Crime.”
Doctor Who 13x04
Village Of The Angels
The worst Doctor ever babbles and in a village graveyard, there is one gravestone too many. In their very first appearance the Weeping Angels were scary. This is not scary. Angels can speak. WTF is the Division? Stuff blows up. The Doctor turns into a Weeping Angel. So?
“Present and unseen.”
“We are patient.”
Walk The Line
The fugitive isn't dead. The karen karens. What is the fugitive playing at with the kid? The karen is racist. There are reveals and the karen is an implacable critic. The train creator makes demands. This was pretty dull ineptitude. There is a paranoid gammon. This was not significant or important. There are grim faced types and a destructive maelstrom. People pay fro their commitment. There is a screed and selfish people. Is someone criminally negligent? People are compassionless and this does not leave you attentive. There is a veneer of righteousnes and a thundering moral issue
There is anger and finger jabbing. There is no covid. There is retrospective inquistion and some kind of retribution is justified. This was random. There is unaccpetably negative talk. What does it avail the cartel to lurk? There is no high emotional content. This wants to be a quiet, thoughtful take on issues. This was not fortuitous.
There are grimmer questions. There is mortal peril. There are a mystery and people are endlessly unpleasant. The fugitive is creepy and probbaly a vile and virtueless excuse for a man.
“High speed trains are a European thing.”
“Is that legal?”
“I'll check while you're gone.”
“The next Elon Musk.”
“Global transporation revolution.”
“I don't do lunch.”
The Devil's Throat 1x11
What Goes Around Comes Around
Filip wants to withdraw from the case. This delivers next to nothing. The area is socailly deprived. There is declining trust. This was muddled. There is castigating. Mia issues empty threats to Filip's dad. Truth is a tainted concept. This was creaking and one cannot countenance this.
Pope's in his vest. Files are missing. There is atavistic revulsion. People are self promoting and ahve deeply disturbing attiudes. This was inauspicious. There is no social service. There is vehement disagreement. Mia gurns. There is community fear. Filip is disowned. Where is Diana? There is talk of The Changing Of The Names and the sins of the past. This was all a prelude to something much worse.
“The Changing Of The Names in 1985.”
“They had no mercy.”
“There's no way back.”
There's an Aquaman mention. Killer Croc is back and it is 20 years since Batman's heyday. The GCPD blew up the original Killer Croc with thermite. Alice yaps. Ryan is the acting CEO of Wayne Enterprises? Ryan meets her mommy. Alice whines and won't save an endangered child. This was yawn. The comic version of Alice is so much better.
“Attention seeking copycat.”
“Everyone gave up on me!”
“Blood and not much else.”
Yellowjackets (2021-?) 1x02
I haven't seen 1x01 yet. A plane crashed and the aftermath is still felt 25 years later. As the plane crashed the pilots yelled about the speed break and dumping fuel. Why did Misty destory the flight recorder? Misty took a babysitter training class, twice. There is gun wielding. 90s stars play the adult versions of the crazy teens. This was mmmmm.
“Did a*al in the janitor's closet.”
“Citizien detective community.”
“Tarzan him out of a tree.”
“Called her a bad word.”
“Chopped his f*cking leg off with an axe!”
