We open with a series of short scenes detailing everyday life, in which both Zak and Tom are adorkable idjuts. (I do find myself wondering why Zak is so bad with the iron, when, presumably, his shirts were well-ironed when he was in his last body?)
Also, the plot starts.
I did Mrs Sheringham a great disservice last time by not mentioning her. This wasn't fair, because she's quite interesting and she's also gorgeous.
These credits really are stunning. Aaaand we have another Ash episode.
Sam West's face is doing all kinds of things to me. His face.
Uh... Richard really doesn't seem all that evil in this scene.
Oh. Wait. Spoke too soon. Hahahaha.
Tom is so impressed with Zak, it's so sweet.
Zak and Richard, hahahahaha.
Ashley, Ashley, Ashley, this is all telling and no showing.
I can see how Zak would fall for Hannah. I love how fierce and fiercely intelligent she is.
Oh, Tom. You poor, misguided fool.
That was a fantastic tracking shot.
Ahah. Nice that we have a callback to one of the first scenes.
Okay, I know I am sounding a bit 'otp' about these two, but I kind of adore how handsy Zak is with Tom already. Including, but not limited to, his audacity in stealing Tom's toast.
OMG, Tobias Menzies. All the laughter in the world for that. Richard/Zak hatesex fic from people who are not me coming in 3, 2, 1...
Someone get this poor woman her mother back.
This kind of reversal is something that Ash does really, really well. Two conversations about one thing, all at cross-purposes with one another.
Hah, and now the subtext becoming text.
I would never, ever let a six year old kid go off on his own at the cricket to buy an ice cream. Parenting skills: u no haz it.
Oh. :( Mrs Sheringham's story is so tragic. But, it also means that Zak made a choice. He could have chosen to be mortal to be with Hannah. He didn't.
Ukweli Roach did an amazing job of keeping straightfaced at that. Also; Ashley, undercutting sentiment since he's been writing radioplays.
Terrible continuity editing with the ice creams.
I find it very hard to believe that a judge would make that pronouncement in this situation. I also don't think the decision can be turned around very easily once it's been made.
Okay, I am a total schmuck, but I am tearing up at this letter.
I don't think Hannah has been at all hysterical. Also, Hattie has the largest eyes.
I... er... I ship Zak/Hannah kind of a lot too. *headdesk* Ashley, writing relationships that fascinate me since 2006.
Sam West's twitching upper lip!
EEEEEEE! "You have to know this stuff." Okay, okay, I know I have been shipping them, but I also see and like a rather sweet brotherly friendship between these two.
Ah. Not as much of a choice as you'd hope, then. Poor Zak.
THIS SHOW IS RIDICULOUS. WHY DO I LOVE IT SO?
