Star-Crossed 1x05 + Elementary 2x21 + Revenge 3x20 Reviewed

Dreamers Often Lie
The Trags plot, Roman wants to find out who his father was taking to on a phone and the Atrian 7 are let wander around town. Gloria acts to protect her hybrid child, Emery and Grayson date. She must have got over him being a Red Hawk in 1x04 which I missed. Emery is always filmed in an unflattering way. Grayson gets arrested thanks to his Red Hawk pals. Roman tries to seek out the Bayou dwelling Atrians. Characters mill around. The resentful Trags plot. Eric bores, Emery is unfazed at everything and the misguided Roman heads off to the Bayou in contravention of common sense. A mean girl turns out to be an Atrian in disguise, she and alien Rambo aka Drake plot their vile ethos. This show is so bad it is not worth getting angry about.

Lucas bores. There is some human/Atrian bonding. Drake takes his shirt off. Grayson and Emery visit a bad guy bar in which the pensive teens are menaced. Cypher is grown from the bodies of dead Atrians. Roman won’t stop talking and overlooks the obvious. The father of Gloria’s child is revealed. This ep was ravaged. Is this cancelled yet?

Best Lines:
“This is Louisianan. We’ve got rivers like every 10 feet.”

“Rookie meathead.”

“You’re lying again.”

“You’re even dumber than she is. I can’t wait for the day she and the rest of the humans are choking on Black Cypher.”

The Man With The Twisted Lip
Holmes hides away some heroin, Watson considers moving out and her meddling gets her abducted. Drones kill people. Holmes is resentful self important umbrage defined. Mycroft visits and Holmes thinks his brother is morally suspect. Gregson is a fruitless character. Holmes is inconsiderate. Watson is somehow not a man-repeller. Mycroft looks like he needs a wash. Dodgy types hang out at his restaurant. This show has deteriorated quite dramatically. Even with Mycoft this ep was inconsistent and shows up the show’s inadequacies.

Best Line:
“Drones is a very loaded term.”

Conrad is repugnant. Victoria knows what Emily tried to do on the boat. Victoria and Pascal’s’ grand romance invokes only doom and bafflement. Nolan talks in painstakingly annoying fashion. Daniel and Margaux are elitism defined. Aiden and Emily grab Pascal and somehow the media tycoon falls for Emily’s laborious latest con. Charlotte is impervious to sense. Where did the Grayson's scads of haters go? What was the point of Stevie? Conrad is disruptive and pervasive. Jack is excluded. Charlotte is defensive. Emily’s reprisals make no strides and run into difficulties. Daniel is disingenuous. Emily’s scare mongering backfires.

Nolan wears an ugly suit to the Myclone launch. A nutter lurks. Javier’s launch of Myclone is a mass of technocratic inefficiency thanks to Nolan and his perverse intervention. Daniel dispenses with Javier. Emily has anxiety and doubt. Pascal exits the show. There is no unreserved pity for Margaux. Daniel has no sincerity left. Charlotte is inexplicably stupid. This was dull and full of ineptitude. Every choice Emily makes is disastrous.

Best Lines:
“Another sensation kicking around inside of me.”
“A burst appendix I hope.”

“David Clarke died in front of a 100 inmates.”

“Those are your ghosts Pascal not mine.”

“He’s taken my future away from me again.”

“The innocent are the first to fall.”
