I am reading ‘Within These Walls’.

I will review ‘The Fever’, ‘Lady Of Misrule’, ‘Dream Stalkers’, ‘Grant’s Pass’, ‘Day Four’ and ‘A Crown For Cold Silver’.

I love the smell of Paris perfume.

Dear relative: stop shouting down your phone and leaving doors open. Stop going on about central heating and the front door. Stop poking your nose into the feuding neighbours business. BTW you broke the corkscrew like you broke the old can opener. Also stop shouting down your phone at nearly 1 in the morning!

Watched a bit of ‘Hollyoaks’: cross-dressing Dylan got run over by some idiot teenagers. Ste has left John-Paul (with no significant concern) to hook up with Sinead who has just had his baby: Savannah. Ste’s behaviour is entirely unacceptable. Remember how he left Doug after marrying him too? Darren causes Maxine to lose custody of Minnie by telling scurrilous lies. Designated bastard Patrick rubs it in and Maxine tries to jump off a a church roof. He’s broken her like he did Anna.

Cleared out a tape from approx 1997. It began with a ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ episode ‘A Necessary Evil’ in which there are fights, Amazons, yelling and women with contacts claiming to be gods. Xena comes up with a counterintuitive plan. No-one has any emotional stability. There is way too much yapping in this ep and this is a no even though Melinda Clarke of ‘The OC’, ‘Return Of The Living Dead III’ and ‘Nikita’ features.

Best Line:
“You can’t hide from a god.”

Then came another ‘XWP’ ep ‘Orphan Of War’ in which Xena has a son who doesn’t know she is his mother. This was yet another arbitrarily tossed out plot point. There is emotional extortion and Gabrielle involves herself in things that aren’t her business. Xena continually makes bad decisions. I’m okay without this. Dirty baddies and trotting centaurs prance around. The son is in peril. Yawn.

Best Lines:
“He will live forever in our legends.”

“She never thought bad things about anyone. Even you.”

Then came an ‘X Files’ ep ‘Max’ in which Skinner autoexacerbates stuff. There is murk and this show had a sheen of respectability. I felt a total disconnect from this. Dignity is lost as Mulder looks into a plane crash. Scully perpetuates smugness. She has no peace, joy or happiness. A plane was downed either by conspiracy nut Max being abducted by aliens, a fighter pilot or a UFO or a combination of all of the above. There is a ridiculous flashback and a time slip and this was ludicrous.

Best Lines:
“Now I’m never alone.”

“All you disbelievers out there.”

“For purposes of a rather troubling agenda.”

“To take down the UFO.”

Finally there was a ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘A Virus Among Us’ in which Jarod pretends to be a virologist. There is 90s hair and Miss Parker sneers and smokes. Raphael Sbarge guest stars, Mr Raines rasps and this was dumb with clunky computer technology.

Best Lines:
“The kill rate is 90%.”

“TB is a Level 2 classification.”

“If you don’t want to end up dead.”

“Ready to battle the unseen enemy?”
