Supergirl 2x15 + The Replacement 1x03 + Timeless 1x14 Reviewed

Jeremiah is evil and there is no significant amount of peril or profound implications. Snapper Carr is the resident cynic. Mon-El is an ass. Kara beseeches. Crap abounds. Kara has so emotionally moved on from James, it’s bizarre. Maggie is peppy, Alex whines and there is no evident talent. Alex is in a sea of despair. Kara operates on the she who shouts loudest gets listened to vibe.

Winn has no significant merit. This was all social message. Everyone is emotionally stunted and they have little shame. This was terrible and a sad indictment of current TV. This was not respect worthy and has no intellectual repartee just group violence. Why should I care about Winn’s club rat? Winn whines and J’onn lurks. Mrs Luthor babbles. There are no positive connotations and this was not idealistic or great. Kara expects her words always to be needed, she wants to be coddled.

There is no emotional attachment, Alex faces chastisement, Lena suggests Twitter and Winn wallows in self pity. This was crappy sap then Kevin Sorbo and Teri Hatcher and their hair plugs show up. Where did the Exodus ship come from? Kara is fired and one is not emotionally invested. This ep leaves one disinterested with its insistence on a social message.

Best Lines:
“Alien dive bar.”

“There isn’t one.”

“Drop that stick.”

“Worm riding is a viable mode of transportation?”

“I would have stopped.”

“Special tape to fix that right up.”

“Nothing permanent.”

“Target lock.”

“Put a fascist in the White House.”

The Replacement 1x03
Paula reveals that Caris is dead. Ellen is foul and so self-obsessed. Paula is sad and wan and leaves her husband. Ellen needs a kicking. She chases Georgia. Her dead boss’ husband David fancies her. Ellen ignores Lia. Then suddenly claims she cares. There are twists and Ellen is the crazy one. She does no reappraisals on her behaviour. She is unassailable in her smugness and absolute contentment in her vile countenance. It’s unhealthy what she does. She is manically vile and causes discomfort. There are intensifying concerns and outside disapproval. There is no dramaturgical tradition and Ellen’s man Ian is stupid. Paula pushes back.

There are no moral requirements. I was not hyper-enthusiastic about this. Ellen creates no loving space and throws Ian aside and hooks up with David. Was David Lia’s dad all along? Ellen pulls unconscionable crap with a non-caring attitude. Paula is eternally obliging and then does stuff. This was all inefficacies. Paula falls down some stairs, David roars and there is a debate on motherhood. Ian’s mother is vile and Ellen pokes into Caris’ death. This goes full on 'Sunset Beach'.

Ian leaves his child outside in a bassinette on a windowsill and she is snatched. Caris’ death is explained and Paula acts out and TPTB screw up the ending. Ellen ruins Paula and Ian and she was the vile one all along. There is no reasonable discourse. I did not like this.

Best Lines:
“You haven’t even said sorry.”

“I’m sorry.”
“No you’re not.”

“I can’t take any more of this.”

“I feel a bit judged.”

“You can say no, but that’s also saying something.”

“Reconstruction of identity required.”

The Lost Generation
Wyatt whines. Is this cancelled or not? History does not change. Where is Lucy’s fiancée? Lucy is given the notebook. There is an unsubtle nod to Wyatt being the voice actor of Anakin Skywalker. The gang vow to fight Rittenhouse and this was good. Rittenhouse takes over the time travel lab and institute sensible rules. Jim Beaver of ‘Supernatural’ is running it now. Mason fades into the background. Rufus whines. Lucy meets her evil chillingly triumphant dad. Wyatt is far beyond reason. Rittenhouse are wreckers of civilization. Lucy has a miserable demeanour. Rufus yells and Flynn looks menacing.

Lucy and Rufus and Wyatt’s replacement go to Paris 1927 to save Lindberg and meet Ernest Hemingway and Josephine Baker. Rufus must have a whining gene. Flynn and his sidekicks do murderous glowers. Flynn shrugs off this show’s metaphysical concept. Wyatt is ridiculously arrogant and crazy. Hemingway drinks and yells. Wyatt is incapable of half civil conversation. There is dissolute glamour and Flynn does the gloved fist of doom.

Wyatt has withering impatience and Rufus’ impassioned yelling annoys. Smol Wyatt has combative responses. There is death and no 1920s slang. Flynn has no knowability. The notebook is unexamined. Mason pulls crap. I have post-ironic affection for this ep. Denise feels sheer distress and where to now?

Best Lines:
“Takeovers don’t have to be hostile.”

“This is a coup.”

“Antique porn.”

“Beyonce 1927."
