Saw some of the inept ‘Poirot’ ep ‘The Clocks’ with Tom Burke. Dialogue was bellowed and it was all rancid joylessness and everyone had the air and look of an idiot.

I’ve been to the Pompidou Centre.

A possible ‘Watchmen’ TV show?

Recall ‘Head Of The Class’?

Recall Peri on 'Doctor Who' dying in 'Mindwarp'?

Anyone see ‘Escape From Alcatraz‘ (1979), ‘Lean On Me’, ’Red Scorpion’,  ’My Left Foot’, ’Stars and Bars’ or ‘The Principal’ (1987)?

Claudia Christian wrote a sci-fi novel?

There is another ‘Saw’ movie?

Anyone watch ‘F Troop’, ‘It Ain’t Have Hot Mum’, ‘Major Dad’ or ‘The Phil Silvers Show’?

Recall the 2005 ‘Casanova’?

I will review ‘Empire of Time’ and ‘Mad’.

I won’t bother with ‘The Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon’.

Recall the 2x05 ep of ‘MASH’ entitled ‘Dr Pierce and Mr Hyde’ in which Hawkeye is sleepless and attempts to drag the camp latrine to North Korea?

Recall ‘The Chair’?

Cleared out a tape from 2004. It began with a ‘Jake 2.0’ ep ‘Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot’. The show had seriously 90s opening credits. Steven Williams, Mark Sheppard and Lochlyn Munro guest star. This was not resonant or promising. Soldiers have a lack of integrity. Jake acts morally irreproachable.

Then came an ‘Angel’ ep ‘Smile Time’. Angel is turned into a puppet. There is bad ADR, an evil kids puppet show and Spike shows up to lose a fight to puppet Angel. Nina bores. This was all implausible fustiness.

Best Line:
“I want helicopters and tear gas!”

Then came another ‘Jake 2.0’ ep ‘The Spy Who Really Liked Me’. Jake is over-emphatic. Jim Byrnes shows up. Jake’s co-workers are openly acknowledged to be hateful, gaffe prone berks who lack all common decency. Jake is a witless calumniser. The show begins its long journey to irrelevance with this ep of bovine stupidity.

Then came a ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Crisis’ in which Clark gets a phone call from the future. The Luthors are all glitz and greed. Clark’s issues are all ruinously self inflicted. He needs to do some self-examination. Lionel is in smirk mode. This was solidly mediocre.

Finally there is one more ‘Jake 2.0’ ep ‘Prince and The Revolution’. Kandyse McClure and Jim Byrnes guest star. People aren’t appreciative of Jake and he doesn’t have a sense of being needed. This had no nuance and Jake wants the world around him to adjust to his desire. This ep is universally loathed and it is full of outdated tech.

I read ‘Misty’ issues 87 to 89. ‘Monster Movie’ is an okay tale of a haunted house. ‘Witchfinder’ is an okay tale of a cruel man and the witch he encounters. ‘The Collector’ is an okay tale of an evil old biddy. ‘Mermaid’ is a tale of a nasty mermaid. ’Winner Loses All!’ is an okay tale of satanic show jumping. ’Art Of Death’ is a ridic tale. ’Hangman’s Alley’ is an excellent tale of a haunted house. ‘The Forest Of Fear’ is a silly tale.

Best Lines:
“That tripe wouldn’t terrify pussy!”

“There’ll be no more strange goings on in the gymnasium.”

“You shouldn’t have dropped that horse-shoe on Miss Simpson’s head, you know!”

“Witchfinder Iserre is coming - hide all the old women!”
