Langford’s Picks and Pans

People of the Valley (Wales)

Hmmm…. I wonder how soon Gethin’s memory is going to come back? It’s obvious he was affected by seeing his father touch Wil, just like Moc had touched Gethin before molesting him as a child. You’d think it would be soon, but the show is teasing that Wil is leaving town for awhile and they’ve been playing this storyline for over a year, so who knows? I think what was most interesting about that scene, was not just Gethin’s reaction, but Moc’s as well. It was as if Moc hadn’t meant to do what he did and that he knew it was wrong, that how he was feeling was wrong, but he just couldn’t help himself. Nice piece of acting on both their parts.

The show still seems to be moving Iolo and Gethin towards a romance as their friendship deepens and gets warmer, but I wonder if anything will happen between them before Gethin gets his memory back or before? Part of me thinks that if they do get involved that relationship will be the key to Gethin’s memory returning and Iolo will help rescue Wil before Moc can get to him. I also thought the scenes with Colin were cute, with Iolo and Gethin playfully pushing Colin to make more of a fool of himself than he usually does. But Colin got the last laugh, it seems.

So far I think the show has done a pretty decent job on this storyline, even if I’m not looking forward to another coming out drama. I really liked the scene where Joscha kept seeing visions of his former lover wherever he looked. I wish the show would give us more insight to their relationship though. But Joscha’s guilt at leaving his lover, who was outed and then killed himself is quite palpable.

As for the rest of the show, I see Katja is as horrible as ever and one could say she got what she deserved for injuring herself during her nasty boink in a bathroom stall with Ben. I agree with her though that Ben has no business being so angry with his fiancé for kissing Ingo. After all, she did stop it, realizing she wanted to be with Ben. Ben was the one who actually had sex with someone else, not that I’m excusing Bea’s behavior. I mean if you’re kissing someone else the day before your wedding, maybe you should rethink your nuptials. Just saying….
