Cleared out a 2000 tape. It began with a ‘Cleopatra 2525’ ep ‘Rescue’ in which they’re on the surface facing bad CGI and this was horrible. Then came a ‘Jack of All Trades’ ep ‘Raging Bully’ in which the tracking was horribly bad and Napoleon (played by Mini-Me) shows up. This was horrid. Then came an ‘Andromeda’ ep ‘The Pearls That Were His Eyes’ in which the original theme music plays. Kevin Sorbo hated it and had it changed. The tracking is way off. Beka deals with her uncle (John De Lancie). This was dull.

Then there was a tacky TV movie from 1997 ‘Crowned and Dangerous’ in which a nasty beauty queen named Shauna (Cassidy Rae of ‘Models Inc’) is murdered. Shauna and her big hair was a beauty queen rival to Danielle (Yasmine Bleeth) and her tacky clothes and skunk hair. This was a dull yet high camp tale of feuding over an idiot ‘hunk’ (George Eads). There is caked on fake tan, the ‘hunk’ has a nasty mother (Gates McFadden), there is romance, big crowns, cheating and a persistence to win. Shauna was increasingly nasty and Danielle was increasingly desperate leading to an extreme variant on ambition. This is allegedly based on a true story. Shauna had it coming, the ‘hunk’ is dumb and the obvious murderer goes crazy and does over-theatrical delivery.

Best Lines:
“This crown is mine.”

“I didn’t win it.”

“Nothing like a beauty queen in danger.”

“I know your type and what you want.”

“I’ll make you the same deal I made that other slut.”
