UKTV – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The best and worst UKTV observations from Sunday 13th – Sunday 20th October 2013. Soap explosions, teeth on TOWIE, bad styling on X-Factor and more.

GOOD TV

Murdering Will survived the explosion in Hollyoaks.

  • Hollyoaks Channel 4: Explosions, multiple deaths, revelations and murder… only this little village can pack in so much action in one week. Brilliant special effects with the bomb explosion.

  • A tense and dramatic week in Emmerdale ITV after serial killer Cameron took hostages in the pub. Every episode was a thrilling, brilliantly acted with great interludes of comedy moments amongst the drama. It was so bloody good, I had to watch the omnibus at the weekend.

  • 999 What’s Your Emergency Channel 4: An insight to how paramedics deal with drunks, day after day. A testing job indeed.

BAD TV

  • Bad continuity on Hollyoaks from the previous weeks Hollyoaks Later (E4) meant viewers had to wait a week for Callum Kane‘s death to be mentioned.

  • Eastenders BBC1 Jack and Ronnie’s falling in love/break-up/Jack’s exit…Pointless and a crap storyline.

  • The Only Way Is Essex ITV2 Sam and Joey’s on-off feelings for each other. Yawn, Yawn, bloody YAWN!

UGLY TV

  • TOWIE… Chloe’s new teeth. When first revealed on camera they favoured a bad NHS job, making her look like an old grandma. Donnatella’s Space must admit they did look better afterwards though.

  • Rachel Riley winning the dance-off on Strictly Come Dancing BBC1 over Julien MacDonald was totally wrong this week. Rachel’s a beautiful girl but she’s got no natural rhythm and looks clumsy on the dance floor. Julien’s no natural dancer, but his effort and personality made him more worthy of a pass for another week. Watching Rachel is really uncomfortable viewing.

  • Sack the stylist on X-Factor ITV for making a mess out of contestant Hannah Barrett. She’s been overstyled with clothes that don’t suit her shape leaving viewers judging her outfits and not her voice.
