This dire ep was all dreary sameyness. Lord has obviously detectable messianic tendencies. This ep had no tension or nuance; it was just low and cheap with a lack of majestic creative vision. The antagonistic and troublemaking Lucy is completely useless. The crowd pleasing campy humour is just laziness and complacency. This ep had no fulsome, bright, shiny ideas to foster emotionally satisfying TV.
Kara does unpopular acts, Red Tornado flies off and I felt indifferent to this ep. Lucy has a shallow personality. Nobody has any conscious debate. Kara gets sufficiently aggrieved. Chequebook dictator Lord needs a scrub down and isn’t winsome, he is juts infinitely irritating. Renowned hardman General Lane makes contemptuous suggestions, furious objections and violent assertations. Cat espouses on her pet issues.
Kara’s undisguisable frustration is seen as irrational and emotive. Lucy hasn’t sufficient respect for anyone. There is really bad acting. Where is Astra? Winn gets information about Mr Danvers ‘death’ and Kara is suddenly human. This was scraggly.
“So much visual noise.”
“That’s not help, that’s treason.”
“Fight my robot.”
“Looks like a wet rat.”
“Amortised to reflect my earning.”
“Why are you so mean?”
“Maiden of might.”
“You cannot get angry at work.”
Francis has vehemence. Claude is self-interested and annoying. Fact is consigned to historical oblivion. Louis is freed from constraints. Claude utters boring explosive consonants. TPTB have created a fake reality in which Narcisse speaks in a portentous voice. Leith finally proposes to Greer but is refused because she wants to keep selling women. Kenna acts like a total whore. The dour chilly Bash and Mary finally speak. Mary whines. This was okay.
“So easy to drive men away.”
“This is how dynasties are born. By taking what someone else has.”
“My rank is poison.”
“How unhappy your brethren are.”
“I trust you were appropriately indignant.”
Illya gets wet and Solo is menaced by ethically malleable types. Illya has a subdued emotional tone. The charmless jerk Solo is particularly annoying to cast himself in a heroic light. The pirate has a mad plan. Illya is described as Russian but season 2 revealed he is from Kiev. This was okay with suffocating sentimentality and crushing despair.
The soberly austere pirate plans a glorious end to human suffering. There are quietly horrifying uncaring moments and this managed to be sombre and deeply satisfying despite being fantastically silly. The duo has bromantic chemistry. The smug Solo does wildly excessive overacting. The innocent du jour gurns and screeches. This was better than the infantilised movie.
A moral stand is made to awful fascination leading to a tragic-farcical ordeal. Where did the tuxedos come from? Pent up frustrations and unresolved issues erupt. Nobody is a full well-adjusted person. The pirate has moral certainty and Solo does intimidatory tactics. The pirate does long profound looks, Solo is acerbic and unpleasant and not reflective or poignant. Still this was ruthlessly entertaining.
“I assume your accent at least is genuine.”
Two students are annoying, self-dramatising, impulsive and self centred. Tendentious remarks are made. The college boy has an usual value system and an unusual personality. He and his galpal and their histrionic bad acting cause some particular structural problems with this ep. Bad people have catastrophic thinking and a pernicious idea about a fanatical will to survive. This was okay.
There is inattention to often terrible choices. WTF is a cold water flat? Solo is selfish and bloody minded. The plot which centres on a never named zombie Hitler does not bode well for credibility, it is not admirably batty just operatively weird.
“Your friend is much too grim.”
“Something that should have died a long time ago.”
