  1. I watch HH out of sheer desperation of something to watch, very slim pickings these days indeed if you can’t stand reality and talent shows.

    Unfortunately HH is getting worse and worse. It started off promisingly, but the scripts and storylines have deteriorated a lot, leaving the actors looking bad as well.

  2. Love the Neighbours tornado. While I’m no expert on storms it seemed more consistent with a cyclone than a tornado, but hey, it’s Erinsborough, tornado capital of Australia.

    Love the scene of Brennan coming out of Toadies house and seeing this massive dark tornado looming,
    Cut to next scene of him and Paige on the couch casually dismissing it like it’s an everyday occurance and chatting about their own relationship problems…Hilarious.
