“He’s a sweater.”
“You might recognise them from such lists as Most Wanted.”
“Did you just smell me?”
Pauline retires from her job as a lollipop lady, nobody in her family cares. Her colleagues give her crappy retirement gifts apart from one teacher who gives her a book of poems. Pauline is tired of being ignored by her husband and being taken advantage of by her selfish uncaring children.
Pauline envies her slutty ’free spirit’ sister Rowan (Celia Imrie) who hangs out with her married lover and her granddaughter Scarlett. Pauline finally cracks when her beloved father Frank dies via a hammock accident. Ken is utterly coldly indifferent and Pauline leaves and moves in with Rowan. Her children cannot comprehend the fact that their mother is tired of being a servant. This was okay but why do the characters address the camera directly like in ‘Modern Family’?
“We just thought that, um, kids would give us purpose and joy.”
The cause of death is a laser blaster, a washed up ‘Nebula-9’ actor lurks hamming it up like Shatner while another former ‘Nebula-9’ actress is now a movie star/serious actress. Jonathan Frakes of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ and Armin Shimmerman (of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’) are one scene wonders whilst Ayre Gross (of ‘Hexed’) is an unpleasant coroner.
Castle and Kate are now at it like rabbits and he wants to see her in a ‘Nebula-9’ costume. Meanwhile was the murder the result of an ill-advised pass or the rights to the series or is there a more mundane reason? This was okay, even if the revelation of the killer was really camp. This ends with William Shanter ‘singing’ on the soundtrack - which is not something that can be unheard.
“Ravaged by sorrow. Reminded me of the moment when first officer Tate was sucked into that wormhole in episode 6.”
“How am I going to unsee that?”
“I waited 10 years to do that, bitch.”
