‘TV3 News’ Quote:

Cleared out a 2000 tape. It began with a season 4 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Fear Itself’ in which it’s Halloween. The tracking is way off. Giles is having a boring mid life crisis. Buffy, Xander and Riley bore. The twist centres on distorted information. This is not as funny as it thinks it is.

Best Line:
“Stupid video store!”

Then came a season 1 ‘Angel’ ep ‘I Fall To Pieces’ in which a boring woman has boring issues. Then came a ‘Nash Bridges’ ep ‘Girl Trouble’ in which Cassidy is menaced. This was unedifying,

Finally there was a ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ ep ‘Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges’ in which Bashir is unimpeachably minded. Section 31 plots something necessitating Bashir’s help. Bashir is all begrudgery and insecurity as he is tenuously attached to a plot on Romulus. This was not textured and was substandard. There are twists in this faux 1970s study. This was dumb and nasty and the big reveal about Ross was seemingly forgotten.

Best Line:
“These are not nice people.”
