Afterlife

ITV Saturdays 9:05pm Written by Charlie Fletcher. Starring Lesley Sharp and Andrew Lincoln (Teachers)

This series is unfortunately disappointing. I watched the first episode four weeks ago and thought it looked good, but I missed the next couple of weeks, and watched it again on Saturday.

It is about a psychic woman who moved house for a new start and to try and escape the voices from the dead. Sadly for her, they don’t go away, and she comes accross Robert, a pschology teacher and writer, and the ghost of his dead son. Each week there’s a different story and different characters get involved.

I feel there is a certain mis-casting – sorry to say Lesley Sharp seems far too miserable as Alison. Granted, she would be miserable with screaming dead babies waking her up all the time; but even when she’s angry she seems to have the same expression. There needs to be something more likeable about the main character really, but perhaps it’s not clear whether it’s the fault of the actress or the director.

This is a series with a great idea, but I couldn’t help thinking, this is one rare case where the Americans would have done it better.

Radio Times mentioned last week’s episode that I missed, was terrifying, so I may give it another go, but I may not.

Entertainment, TV,

mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.

Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
