Reviews of ‘Arbella: England’s Lost Queen’ and ‘Summoning The Night’ forthcoming.
I am reading ‘Blood and Beauty’.
I am done with Patricia Briggs and her ‘Mercy Thompson’ saga.
RIP Bob Hoskins.

Then came an ‘Invasion’ ep ‘Origin of Species’ in which the Sherriff is uncommunicative. Dave is menaced by intrusive types. People talk and talk and talk. The whole alien substitution plot drags on intermittently. Russell needs a wash. The Sheriff allows his one armed deputy to be hauled off by a crappy CGI effect. Things get undesirable.
Then came a season 5 ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Solitude’ in which Clark pouts like the big dumb alien he is. Lois is inappropriate. Chloe doesn’t get the concept of factual and Professor Fine reveals he is evil. Jonathan Kent is a moron and Martha has an incurable cough of death. Nothing happens, this ep was not buoyant.
Finally there was another season 2 ‘Stargate Atlantis’ ep ‘Michael’ in which a man (Connor Trinneer) learns he is a transformed Wraith. The Atlantis gang come across as unprepared and the misappropriated Wraith develops an impregnable moral grandiosity. CD-Roms are used and this was not substantive. There is aggressiveness all around. Michael is nauseatingly offensive and would go on to become a boring recurring villain. I am extremely withdrawn from this show, the reverberations from this would drag on and on for the various inflammatory, expressionless twits. This ep was shrouded in meaninglessness and the salient fact was that this show was entrenched crap by the time this ep aired.
