RIP Lewis Collins.
There will be no review of ‘Under The Dome’ 1x13 ‘The End of the Beginning’; I’m done with that show.
I am reading ‘The Misfortune Cookie’.
‘Dr Phil’ Quotes:
“Why do you need someone else to come in and fix your daughter?”
On ‘Hollyoaks’, Trevor the rougharsed local hood menaces Tony. Sam (the only cop in Chester) realises nice guy Fraser Black is Trevor’s crime lord boss. Fraser’s arch rival shows up to menace Trevor. Leela is a fire-fighter and picks a fight with Grace. Dodger is useless. Ruby learns Frankie shagged her boyfriend Ziggy. Ruby tells Jack but he doesn’t believe her and Frankie lies. Frankie is awful and a liar and a denier. Ruby seems to have forgotten Jono. Esther and Tilly are nowhere to be seen. Robbie continues to be awful and Sienna is still holding the stupid Tom prisoner.
Then came an ‘Andromeda’ ep ‘Harper 2.0’ in which Tyr is cool (this was before Kevin Sorbo had TPTB ruin Tyr’s character). Trance is purple and mysterious. Dylan has a mullet. Harper gets the contents of a library dumped into his head and things get a bit ‘Tommyknockers’. There are sill fight scenes and the crew learn the truth about the infamous Magog destruction of the planet Brandenburg Tor. This was the first hints about the big bad The Spirit Of The Abyss. Naturally TPTB ruined it. This was dull with bad CGI and the fearsome Magog where always just men in ratty fur suits.
Then came a season 5 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘No Place Like Home’ in which Glory debuts, Riley lurks, Joyce is unwell, Ben is suggested as potential man candy and Buffy realises Dawn is fake. This was ugh, just ugh.
Finally there was a season 2 ‘Angel’ ep ‘Dear Boy’ in which Wesley was ridiculous, Angel broods, Kate annoys, Lorne does exposition dumps and flashbacks show Darla popping out of her low cut dress and Angelus displaying his ratty wig and awful ‘Irish’ accent. Drusilla is shown as a human and it is all very tragic. This was lame.
