It’s the penultimate episode of Long Lost Family tonight and it promises to be an emotional one. The Long Lost Family team feature the stories of two sisters who were kept while their brothers were given up for adoption, a family split by the decision to give up a child fifty years ago, and a sister searching for the brother who was kept a secret from her as a child.

Elizabeth Wells and her daughter Janice are searching for Elizabeth’s son Brian. Fifty-five years ago Elizabeth made an agonising decision to keep Janice while giving away Brian.

‘I’ve missed him from the day I agreed to go through with it and I regret it, I sincerely regret it’ says Elizabeth.

When she was just sixteen years old Elizabeth became pregnant by her first boyfriend. He was married but he promised that he would leave his wife. She gave birth to Janice and her parents helped to take care of the baby. Believing that it would work out she continued to see her boyfriend and seven months later she fell pregnant again. By the time she gave birth to her baby boy Brian, her boyfriend had decided to cut all contact and remained with his wife. Unable to cope she reluctantly gave Brian up for adoption.  

Tracey Collins is desperate to find her missing brother. As a child Tracey had always complained to her parents that she didn’t want to be an only child. When she was seventeen her mother told her that she had an older brother who they had given up for adoption before Tracey was born. Despite Tracey’s questions her mother would tell her nothing else about her brother.

Without her mother’s knowledge, Tracey’s father told her that they had given up their son because they had no money or work and were struggling to survive living in one room. Tracey’s mother passed away in 2008 and since then, she and her husband have been trying to find her brother.

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE.ted 2 is directed by Colin Trevorrow, who also wrote the film with Derek Connolly. It is Trevorrow’s second feature, after the inventive indie science-fiction-relationship movie Safety Not Guaranteed.

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE FREE.Trevorrow and Connolly create references both slight and significant to the earlier Jurassic films and their elements, ranging from T-shirts to plot points. A single character remains from the first movie, the geneticist Dr Wu (B.D. Wong), and the film is set on the island where it all began in Jurassic Park.

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE.Zach and Gray (Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins), the two boys we meet at the beginning of the film, are being sent off to stay with their aunt, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), the operations manager of ted 2, whose attractions are lovingly delineated: prehistoric petting zoos, dinosaur holograms, an aviary, and a cool safari park where visitors travel in clear gyrospheres.

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE FREE.Claire, however, is dealing with a business reality: product saturation. “Let’s be honest, no one’s impressed with dinosaurs any more,” she proclaims. “Consumers want bigger, louder, with more teeth.” She’s talking up the coming attraction in ted 2, the first genetically modified hybrid dinosaur, Indominus rex, larger, scarier – and it turns, out smarter – than anyone can imagine.

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE.In ted 2, everyone has an angle on these creatures. To Claire, at least at the outset, they are assets to be managed. To the billionaire entrepreneur Simon Masrani (Irrfan Khan) who sinks money into the park, they are a source of wonder as well as an investment. To his company’s shady security guy, Hoskins (Vincent d’Onofrio), they offer a kind of black ops fantasy ripe for exploitation: dinosaurs as killing machines.

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE FREE.Only Owen (Chris Pratt) ex-soldier, animal behaviourist and dinosaur trainer, has anything resembling an empathetic perspective – even, in certain ways, for Indominus rex. He has the capacity to imagine what the creature is capable of.

    For the punters in ted 2, there’s still an evident sense of wonder at the spectacle the creatures provide. Even the jaded Zach is pretty impressed when a mosasaurus leaps out of the water to pick off and gobble up an enormous shark hanging on a hook – a reference, surely, to Jaws, and to Steven Spielberg, director of the first movie and executive producer of this one.

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE FREE.Once Indominus rex flexes her muscles, however, the wonder turns ugly; it’s up to a small, resourceful group of survivors, led by Owen and Claire, to save the day. There are a few unexpected casualties along the way, and a couple of figures whose roles seem truncated, notably the character played by the French actor Omar Sy (The Intouchables)

    WATCH ted 2 ONLINE.Pratt makes Owen an appealing, down-to-earth action hero, and Claire, once she has shed her company loyalties, becomes a convincing aunt-turned-Amazon. Her ability to run in heels, however, verges on a superpower – it’s as much of a fantasy as anything else in the movie.

    ITV is a British TV network. Highly unlikely that you could watch this legally outside the UK (either via broadcast or streaming) unless episodes are sold to a US broadcaster.
    I’m happy to see these posts, as I live in the UK. But there should be an indication that these are UK broadcasts.
