Drizzly Friday...

Ohh, I say, what a manky, dismal day. Mind you I prefer it to being roasted alive in the hot, bloody sun. I did absolutely fuck all, except watch the very well made psychological  'orror SAINT MAUD, on Amazon Prime. It's very good, and gave me the abdabs, actually.
This week, I also watched the end of THE PACT, which I quite liked, and the second part of BEFORE WE DIE, which is a bit dull and silly, with some rather ludicrous 'Croatian' criminals, etc. Probably won't bother with the rest.
ANNE BOLEYN was pretty lame, too. Apart from some interesting variations on Tudor costumes, and the black Boleyn siblings, there was nothing remotely   unusual or intriguing about it, and unlike THE TUDORS, it didn't even have the advantage of being a good laugh.
I see that HOLBY CITY will finally end next year. I often had it on in the background while otherwise occupied, but a few years ago, whe Paul McGann was playing a well meaning but quite mad doc experimenting on unwary patients, sometimes fatally, that I noticed just how mental it was, and it's been getting crazier ever since. People are frequently murdered or taken hostage on site, there are drug fiends on the staff, any number of tortured romances, at least one serial killer doc, nervous breakdowns galore, two weddings (the bride died  just before (or was it after?) one, and in the other, groom 1 called it off  at the altar, leaving groom 2 shattered...Groom 2, actually, the puppyish Dom, ended up with a colostomy bag after a car crash while chasing a madwoman. Now he's all embittered, as you would be, and is suing the hospital, not to mention getting rather callously ambitious. On and on. One dangerous place, Holby. I'll rather miss it.
Moon, thank the gods, seems OK. I have to drag her back to the vet in the morning for her follow-up, though. Fingers crossed.
