VICTORIA Season 2 Episode 6. In general I love this series from BBC with Jenna Coleman playing the role of her lifetime exceptionally, a stellar cast, great writing and exceptional production values.
However, Season 2 Episode 6: FAITH, HOPE AND CHARITY was the most brilliant episode of TV Drama I have seen in a long time. This episode is about the Irish Potato Famine of the mid 19th Century and the courage of Dr Robert Traill.
Series creator and writer, Daisy Goodwin, deserves to win awards for her amazing work on this episode. Also beautifully directed by Jim Loath. I was reduced to tears several times.
EMPIRE/ THIS IS US. Both shows have returned for another season but they were really struggling to hold my attention. Then suddenly with Episode 6 they both returned to the standard of their previous seasons and blew me away. I question how it can take six episodes of a series before the endless list of producers realise that they are getting it wrong. Is that how long they take to get our viewer feedback and make the needed changes?
Well, they are back on form and even reducing me to tears again in Ep 6 & 7 of THIS IS US.
UPDATE: Jan 2018:THIS IS US Episode 10 was so unengaging, dull and weakly written that I am now DUMPING this series for good!
A combined story over one week’s episodes of Supergirl, Arrow, Flash and Legends Of Tomorrow. The CW, Warner Bros., Greg Berlanti (my hero), Andrew Kreisberg (now fired due to sexual harassment claims) and the team have created a brilliant cross-over storyline that adds new life to all four shows.
One of the biggest statements of the story is the Lesbian one-night stand, and the Gay kiss-of-the-century between out gay actors WENTWORTH MILLER and RUSSELL TOVEY. The other statement is the Nazi victory in WW2 on Earth X which is also a big nod to the recent powerful series Man In The High Castle.
Flash and Legends Of Tomorrow had lost me as a viewer in their current seasons, Supergirl has me just hanging on, and Arrow still has me hooked.
