Tedium...

Watched  PARADISE:LOVE, one of a trilogy, and it was very, VERRY depressing. At first, I thought it was a documentary, until it got so glumly intimate that I couldn't imagine anyone, however exhibitionist/masochistic, would allow themselve to be filmed 'like that'. Oy...It was all about this dowdy Austrian woman, with a dull life working as a carer for the mentally disabled and living with a daughter in full 'Kevin the Teenager' mode, going off to Kenya for a spot of sex tourism. Oh boy, was it dismal. Hope the other episoes lighten up a bit...and I don't usually complain about downbeat content!
Also watched DOWNTON ABBEY, for the 'Nellie Melba' thread. I still can't understand how many people are hooked on it.The dialogue is super-lame, the plots are boring, and I loathe all the characters, with the marginal exception of naughty O'Brien, who has gone off to Australia, or India, or somewhere, to do evil.
It was, as usual, soporific, but I've since read that legions of Mail-readers have been completely shattered by a scene where the gruesome Bates' unexplainably adoring wife got rather decorously raped by Son of Dirty Den EASTENDERS.
Switchboards flooded with angry protests, etc. Gimmie a break!
It's supposed to cool off in a few days. I do hope so, this sickly 'Indian Summer' weather is making me feel so crook...
Had my head shorn, and was horrified by how EXTREMELY old, weary and bloodhound-jowled I look. Jeez...
