Sent On Tour
This was a vast improvement and was okay. I’ll stick with this show for now. Who is tree tattoo guy? The gang find a dangerous criminal (Lou Diamond Philips) in a secessionist town. Blondie has issues with her bumbling intellectual boyfriend. Nobody has any understanding of or consideration for sense. Jane makes uncheckable claims. The criminal is an icon of dissipation. Kurt seems deprived of his enjoyment of life. Blondie annoys with relentless vigour. There are simmering tensions and Kurt tries to be bone-gnawingly tough. People act in reckless and strange ways. Jane can fly a helicopter apparently. Blondie isn’t concomitant. Mayfair is an example of leadership failure.

Best Lines:
“Damn sure not her call.”

“I’ll pretend I didn’t see anything.”

“I’m FBI, that’s how.”

“We’re not with you anymore.”

“Assess his threat level.”

“Did you really think we wouldn’t find you?”

Murphy’s Law
Murphy is not known for his temperance. The gang finally run out of ammo and have to kill zombies with golf clubs. Murphy is lacking in moral fibre and brains. The gang run into three shifty types who act disfavourably and without consideration. Murphy is utterly unfit to be a hero. Murphy’s talismanic power over zombies (and humans) grows. Cassandra shaves her armpits. The three baddies are emotionally constipated and can’t act. Zombies on Ritalin and Viagra are encountered. This lacks wit and is plodding and serviceable. The main baddie is a petulant milksop who wants to rob drugs. The fatalism of the conclusion plays out to the extremely bitter end. This was lonely, grinding and empty and how did they get more ammo?

Best Lines:
“That is an understatement.”

“Getting that vibe.”

“Something wrong?”

“I don’t like the way he said that!”
