What a couple of bombshell nights of Love Island.

Aaron, model, reduced to a flood of tears two nights in a row comes up with the classic line, after his best friend is dumped from the “island”: “I hate crying… it wrecks my skin. It’s bad for your skin, rubbing and irritations”.

His partner consoles him: “But you know if you store it, you can get fat. Because the cortisol levels rise in your body.”

*Aaron stops crying.

This is brilliant television! No one could write that. No one.

Succession tonight… best show on the planet by some distance. What an opening for season three.
My wife watches Succession.

As well done as it is I have no desire to spend my time with rich scumbags. There are enough in the real world.

The other reality shows of choice at the moment: Below Deck and Below Deck Med. For a long time have been wondering what on earth was happening. But absolutely hooked now. I had to binge all the previous series that I could. Travel, beautiful scenery, luxury boats, mixed with a whole lot of rich, often drunk people behaving badly, and poor crew, often drunk, behaving badly or trying to get it on. Brilliant combination.

Then property renovation, building, buying and selling shows. Can't go wrong there either.

You getting ideas for what to do on your Yacht GE?

So your perfect show would be about drunk renovators building and selling yachts, all while trying to find love and behaving badly

So that was the expected result. The US version of this show is a pale imitation, the narration being the big drawback, and the lack of irony. Americans are not good at self deprecation.

Just finished Season 1 of Yellowstone. I’m struggling to find the motivation to watch Season 2. I’m finding the death count a bit on the crazy side. The characters are pretty badly written, especially the daughter. Hoping it gets better
