I'm in my early thirties and I don't blog half as much as I'd like to. I'm constantly working on fixing this, though nothing ever bloody comes of it. Let's just see how we go...

The Struggle

Oh dear. I mean, I know days like today come along. I also know they go. I’ll be fine, but today has been a proper struggle. I feel drained. Physically exhausted. I feel foggy and sore and my eyes are burning. I feel weak and I feel irritable. I’ve been relatively happy; that’s the strangest thing about this stupid disorder. I’m not sad. I’m depressed. I’m having a depressed day. It’ll pass…

…I’m going to start using this blog for more personal posts again, I think. It’s mine, after all. You don’t have to read it. You probably aren’t, are you? I could say “fuck” and nobody would know. FUCK. see? Anyway. As you were.




Russell T Davies’ latest powerhouse of a show, Years And Years, reaches what promises to be a thrilling conclusion next week. The last five weeks have been a terrifying and eye-opening ride through a possible (and plausible) near future. A family saga that goes forward at breakneck speed.

It’s a wonderful show, full of great performances and surprises aplenty. Once the series ends next Tuesday I’ll recap and review the whole first run. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you catch up on BBCiPlayer as soon as you can.

Westworld Season 3 Trailer Drops

Game Of Thrones has ended (disappointingly? I never watched it) and there’s a big TV-shaped hole in the lives of people about to eat them up. May I suggest that the people who need a new show shift their attention to Westworld? The first two seasons are out there, waiting to be experienced. The third season is on its way in 2020. Take a look at the trailer above. Starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, the trailer gives us a glimpse of the “real world” and a very brief look at what our favourite antihero, Dolores Abernathy, may be up to in it.
