Liar, Rellik and Dr Forster: The dramas that unfolded this week!

A series round up once again. We close the curtains on Dr Forster! You have made our Tuesday nights entertaining, but we bid you farewell! See you for series 3 (hopefully)…

Liar cover

Liar (episode 4 on Monday 2nd October):

This episode showed us bits and pieces – unnerving things about previous occurrences. Little snippets that made us hate Andrew.

I am not sure about Andrew. He puts his nice face on at work, but is out of control when he is off shift. Breaking into houses, planting evidence, drugging a female police officer… a side to a surgeon that you don’t ever want to be see and hope is true! His audacity to sue her over ruining his reputation shows how he feels he has gotten away with it.

I liked the little potential love story in it between Laura and the man she met at the hotel – that you may be able to recover from something horrifying and abusive. It gives women  (and men, sadly) some hope that it will get better.

Star Rating: 4 stars!

Rellik Killer seies

Rellik (episode 4 on Monday 2nd October):

If you are still watching Rellik, then I applaud you! It takes time to get your head around it, but you are half way. Two more episodes then you can give your brain a rest!

I have been waiting to see what he looked like before the attack and we eventually did. He looked normal, relaxed and calm and he is so different now. He is now dysfunctional, scary and revenge hungry and I don’t blame him!

An episode that is still losing its popularity compared to Lair, its rival show on ITV.

A backwards plot that leaves fans answering their own questions by the end of the episode, taking away any suspense and excitement that watchers expect when watching a “thriller”.

Star Rating; 3 stars!

Dr Forster s2

Dr Forster (episode finale on Tuesday 3rd October):

An episode that in my opinion went a little bit too far. A plot concerning two parents , in a rut, with a child in the middle – confused and sad. You could see it throughout the episode – the pain of not having a family that stands by one another and what it does to you.

There were moments where I thought she could “finish him off early”. She had an opportunity to hit him with her car and even gave him drugs to let him do it himself. But even with her hard cased character, she still loved him. The thought of him doing harm would be too much to bear and haunt her.

The episode was so dramatically farfetched, that it left us all broken with an outcome that every parent would dread. A moment where everything you fort over is gone. Yes, I thought Tom was hit by the car where he had watched his dad give up. I don’t know if him leaving was any better – at least you would know where he is and he was happy, you know?

A series that has come to a sad end, but has potential for a third – maybe Simon will get his life together or Tom will turn up. We hope so.

A series well worth your time!

A Series Recap of the week! What did I miss?

A little look at the series that were on earlier this week! I have not given much away (well I hope) so you can watch them now and experience the same excitement and drama.

Killer: Episode 3 (BBC 1 on Monday 25th Sept at 9pm)

A twisted episode with the murder and relationship that was very close to home. It all got a little uncomfortable. A closing  cliffhanger scene also left us desperate for more and scared for Gabriel’s well-being.

The series is getting more complicated by the episode. It takes total concentration to remember the plot and the going back in time aspect is not everyones thing.

Still worth a watch though! 

Star rating: 3 stars!

Liar: Episode 3 (ITV 1 on Monday 25th Sept at 9pm)

The episode was like a game of table tennis. Just when we thought we were winning and you knew who it was, you were suddenly hit by a fastball. Little details that add to the plot (slowly)  but give us no real clue about what happened.

I don’t know how you feel about the characters, but I was especially shocked to by the closing scene – I felt like saying “We got you!”. The truth is, we have been on tenterhooks during the series and have supported both parties at some point.

We will get to the final episode and then ask ourselves “why did we not see it?” Because all of a sudden it will become really obvious. 

Great engaging episode! 

Star rating: 4 stars!

Dr Forster: Episode 4 (BBC 1 on Tuesday 26th at 9pm)

This episode showed the aftermath  of the guilty party who got what he deserved. Just when you thought it was going good, it went up a notch. It was so satisfying to watch and drama was written all over.  

We have made it to the finale next Tuesday and everything is going to come down to this. Will all the efforts be worth it in the end?

Star Rating: 4 stars!

Finally…

What a week of series! There is more drama in these shows than an episode of Eastenders!

Did you like the episodes? If so, than let me know 🙂

 

Well that is all from me. Until the next review…

Bye guys 🙂

 

Weekly review: A brief review of the latest series to catch up on!

Three series with their own little review. If you are wondering what to watch or have lost track of the array of shows you have started, than this should help.

Series included in this review include Rellik, Liar and Dr Forster.  As some of you would be aware, Strike: Silkworm (J K Rowling book based series) had its final episode last week and it was good! It is still on Iplayer if you are interested..

Rellik (episode 2):

The episode was hard to follow, much like last weeks. There is only so much back tracking that you can take before your minds are boggled and you completely forget what has happened. It is a nice idea and the plot is definitely captivating, but it is just a little bit too complicated. I’m sure that by the end of Rellik, it will make sense  – all the lose ends will be tied up and you can see it in normal time, but honestly, I don’t think viewers will wait that long.

There is a growing, unanimous opinion from viewers that it is unwatchable and they have favoured other series like Liar or Dr Forster. I agree.

Star Rating: 2 stars

Liar (episode 2):

A series that gets more tense as the episodes progress. A tin of worms was thrown into the case – a trending social media post, a new insight into Andrews wife death, a text from unknown…

We also had a brief encounter from Dennis Walters in the previous episode – “She has lied about something like this”… as if it is not the first and Andrew is her next victim. She seems like a lovely character, however we only know that she is a teacher. Nothing about her history prior to that night. She may be a little more surprising than we think!

The episode was tense and made us wonder… are there things that they are not telling us?  I just feel like watching more… excited to find out what will happen next. A week is far too long to wait!

Star Rating: 4 stars!

Dr Forster on BBC 1:

Episode 3 showed on Tuesday 19th September

Dr Forster was back to her tricks and had a few things up her sleeve. With everything that was going on with her son, it was a chance to patch things up with her Simon, or was it?

A few things led to another and the family went into crisis. A confused and upset son, a lonely and desperate mother and a father trying to move on with his new, slightly controversial and partially undeserved life. What else would you want to watch with this much drama??

This was a very exciting episode. So much was going on and there were very raunchy scenes. There was definitely no holding back by Gemma but it’s no scene for sensitive eyes….
