In the Grimm version The Frog Prince is basically a morality tale about how if you attempt to brutally murder your would be rapist he will be reformed into a handsome and respectful prince. There’s no kissing. I like it.
I marathoned Happy Valley last night and oh my lord did it ever live up to expectations. It’s like True Detective but with less manly bullshit and with a more elegant plot.
Now I must sing the praises of Catherine Cawood. She is such a real woman! Sure, she saves the day and is a hero, but she can also be a selfish bitch. There are so many different roles she takes on throughout the show and she is never reduced to just one of them. It’s glorious to watch.
Also, I feel bad for the actor who plays Tommy because I can’t imagine seeing him in real life and not being violent towards him.
