What is going on in the work camp? Katie tries to sob story Jennifer. Katie eye rolls and visits a religious meeting. Fundamental societal transformation is grossly repellent to her. Katie finally notes the logical and causal effects of her actions. She’s not humorously clueless. Maddie is full on dedicated to Nolan’s cause. Are the aliens getting rid of the intellectuals?
Bram is in a work camp which looks like an Amazon warehouse. He is beat up. Katie’s contributed nothing. Will and unwashed Charlie are not endlessly fascinating. Will’s former partner tags along. Nolan smugs. Gracie is older than in season 1. This ep is full of sap and has no dynamism. Will casts aspersions on Katie. Nobody is commendable. Jennifer’s boss menaces. Charlie whines. Snyder recruits Bram to spy on his fellow detainees. No to this. The Resistance carry out another massacre. They kill humans because the aliens are untouchable. Will is not killed by a drone unlike some other unfortunates. An ominous indicator. This was not good.
“Guy hit me with a board, had a nail in it!”
“You found a safe harbour.”
“Lower the prisoner attrition rate.”
“You’re Will Bowman’s other son.”
Almost Human (2013-2014) 1x01
This JJ Abrams cops and robots show set in 2048 is terrible. It is full of contrivance, manipulation and false trails. Karl Urban looks mournful. He’s been in a coma and his girlfriend left him and he’s billy-no-mates for the death of his team. Nobody has core ethics or a kind presence. This was tremendously unpleasant and robots annoy and are argumentative. Karl Urban throws a robot out of his car and gets a new robot partner. Karl Urban has no common sense or good judgement. This has a blatant disregard for quality. Karl Urban (I can’t even recall his characters name) is violent and emotionally difficult and bad in social situations. He’s a crypto-fascist git and I hate him and this.
Kevin’s dead and his ex whines. Heather and Matthew plot. Emma makes it all about her. Emma is rude to Olivia. Rachel’s mother is located and she lets it be known that Rachel has become Laura Wild. Heather berates Laura. Emma doesn’t care that terrorists threatened her or were living in her house. Emma berates Laura and is lectured by Matthew Wild. Emma is ridiculous. Laura is not nice and Matthew throws it all away for nothing. Linda’s death was an accident but why the elaborate cover-up? Matthew ran Linda over. Emma makes a speech and wears a wire. Heather is arrested and someone takes an overdose. Emma hangs out with the terrorist like nothing happened. Her boyfriend can’t act. Emma spews sob story backstory. This was utterly stupid.
“All the fuss I made. What did it do?”
“Four years too late.”
“It proved nothing.”
“Can’t get anyone to listen.”
“Her credibility’s shot.”
“How did you become her?”
“What I can’t forgive you for.”
“Fell right at his feet with your legs wide open.”
Being united with her son isn’t a family strengthening moment for Mary. She is not high-spirited, witty, determined or ill-rewarded. Mary goes on about witchpox and witchblood. Tituba makes uncompromising declarations. Mary is proud of her self-creation and sad compromises. She is unwavering in her devotion to satan. It’s been 6 weeks since 1x01. Lucy Lawless, Stuart Townsend and Raoul Trujilo guest star.
Mercy makes rightful challenge to Mary. Cotton is not politically capable and people are anti-congratulary. The power of Mary’s silent love for John is shrugged off when she believes him dead. This is of dubious historical authenticity. Mercy does something needlessly severe to people. What happened to the bodies of the Hale parents? Anne is judgemental.
Hathorne rants about normative restrictions, there are references to Knocker’s Hole and Mary has resilience and eye-shags the doctor (Townsend). The hags in the wood reject Mercy and die for it. More witches show up and an important witch (Lawless) lurks. Isaac lives. John hangs out with the Native Americans and gets a haircut and a common cause for revenge. Mercy makes an evocative statement. This was okay.
“Begin the consecration of the land with hellblood.”
“She is a cradle witch. Of the highest and oldest order.”
“Only a broken heart can feel true malice.”
“My malice is in full bloom.”
“Only horror awaits you.”
Mercy loses another coven. John and his questionable tattoos stares. Mary is hurtful and disruptive. Now Tituba and Mary are on about The Great Task and a comet. Mary’s son torments George. Tituba is back in Mary’s house as if she was never arrested as a witch. Anne is bothered by Hathorne. There is sugar in Puritan Salem.
Anne says her father was in the West Indies which contradicts what he said in season 1. This is better than the profoundly inept season 1, this is a vast improvement. Anne travels via the magic mask which her father burnt in season 1. Lewis rants. Since when is a collection of witches called a hive? John killers the Seer. Dude! The important witch aka the Countess torments Anne and claims to have once been known as Hecate and Bathory. Also she says she is the last of the true witches.
Why is the Grand Rite the highest ambition achievable for witches? The Countess once encountered Increase. This was good and engaging. Anne is not without importance. The doctor moves into John’s house. Mary’s son acts inappropriately. Mercy goes home.
“Cease your shrikeing harpy.”
“Our Dark Lord at last incarnates.”
“Make the crossing.”
“Pit of death.”
“Done the undoable.”
“An awkward and bloody thing.”
Mary gives her son fascinated stares despite the fact he killed a dove. Has nobody in Salem noticed that Anne is missing? Tituba has no marks or scars from Increase’s interrogation. Even if she healed via her magic, wouldn’t anyone have noticed her sudden healing? Nobody seems to notice the boy living in Mary’s house. Doctor Wainwright seems dodgy. John prances around dressed like a highwayman. Mary’s will is challenged and she has a visitation. Witch wars! This was okay.
“Your ever silent husband.”
“Reach so far beyond your station.”
“George is my power in this town.”
Love & Death
Mary and Darnley smug. Claude revels in her adultery. Gideon’s brat is sick. People don’t seem worried about infection. Where are the Guise family? Darnley is a horrible person. Leeza sneers. This was terrible. Leith is awful and tries to murder Luc.
“Baby eating and so forth.”
