Langford’s Picks and Pans

A Place to Call Home (Australia)

So next week is the final episode. Interesting how the promos tease that everything is going to wrap up when there’s no way it can given that the show’s creators didn’t know they’d be cancelled mid season. At any rate I’ll be watching, even if I’ll be left with a feeling of disappointment that the stories aren’t resolved. It’s really too bad we couldn’t even get a two hour wrap up finale to mitigate missing out on what would have been the show’s final year. Oh well…

Regina has crossed over from evil to insane. Taking a beating to get the attention of the man you want is just cray-cray. And it looks like George is gonna fall for it. But I did love the look on her face when she sashayed into the church and saw Sarah.

I’m so glad that Anna and Elizabeth made up, even if neither of them changed their minds. I liked how Elizabeth said she thought Anna and Gino’s marriage would be a disaster, but she truly hoped she was wrong so Anna would be happy.

Okay, so Andrew definitely has a plan in mind in regards to why he helped Olivia get that baby. I’m chomping at the bit to see it come into fruition next week and how it affects Anna and Gino. I think Elizabeth is going to be the one to put the pieces together. She’s not a dumb woman and she already knows something fishy is going on.

I figured that Olivia would have trouble bonding with the baby. I thought it was interesting that the subject of breast feeding and why Olivia isn’t was never brought up in terms of story. Or was it and I missed that? Not too fond of the name Georgie though. I did like the fight between James and Olivia where he told her that men and women can’t be friends. Amazing how that’s changed (and not changed) over time. And her response to James was hurtful, but I did chuckle.

Don’t tell me Jack is going to be one to perform Rene’s brain surgery? He’s helped James with his problems, dealt with Elizabeth’s heart ailment and now this. Is he literally a “Jack of all trades” when it comes to medicine?

Coronation Street (U.K.)

Not much to say, other than I really am disappointed as to how this storyline turned out. I don’t think it has serviced anyone one well, especially Marcus, who lost all his brain cells for the story to work. I don’t mind Todd being a deceitful, scheming user (not all gay characters have to be nice), but Marcus shouldn’t have been so easy to fool. Glad Maria came around in regards to Liam though. Wonder what Todd will do next to ruin that?
