Ok, I’m sorry, but I can’t stop a wry grin at the suggestions for “related tags” under #Peter Jakes.
I didn’t take a screenshot at the time because I was too busy wailing in pain (still am, tbh) but the suggested tag soon after Neverland aired was simply: “#why”
Now, it’s just
Can’t disagree, tbh. :-/
The great thing in the Morseverse: even if you really piss of your DI by lying/ignoring his orders/simply loosing your temper. He will still drop everything to save your life.

Look, if you let yourself get sent to the Bastille because it was too much effort to say, I'm not d'Artagnan, YOU ARE A SLOTH, SIR. And maybe if you wanted to be known as a SUCCESSFUL murderer, you should actually finish what you start. The novel could have avoided 80% of its conflict if you hadn't half-assed it, Athos. It would have been The Three Gigolos, zany hijinks of four bros sticking their dicks in things in the king's name because they think YES, legitimate life choice. ...Poor Treville

i can add nothing but a fine sprinkling of happy tears on this spaghetti platter of a review
one thing I find hilarious is when Shakespeare quotes are used out of context
like, people are always saying “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them” as if it’s all deep and meaningful when actually it comes from a prank letter in Twelfth Night
and “This above all: to thine own self be true” comes from Polonius in Hamlet wherein the joke is that he’s an old pompous dude giving a long and rambling speech full of contradictory pointless advice to his son
“Brevity is the soul of wit” is another joke, because again, it’s made by Polonius who will just not shut up
it’s “we are such stuff as dreams are made on” not “of “, as in, “such stuff as dreams are built on”
“wherefore art thou, Romeo” doesn’t mean “where are you, Romeo” it means “why the fuck are you called Romeo, shit, I wanted to bang you but I can’t because you’re a goddamn Montague”
all these lines have acquired a kind of dignity in text that they never had in performance or are constantly misinterpreted
It’s not necessarily bad but it is kind of funny, sometimes.
