Sweet orange and thyme dark chocolate - nice.

Anyone see ‘Havana’ or ‘Another 48 HRS’ or ‘Elf’ or ‘Miracle On 34th Street’ or ‘The Polar Express’ or ‘Ernest Saves Christmas’ or ‘Jingle All The Way’ or ‘Muppets Christmas Carol’ or ‘Conan The Barbarian’ (1982) or ‘’Superman IV: The Quest For Peace’ (1987)?

‘Molly’s Game’ sounds interesting.

Recall ‘Space Cases’ or ‘The Flying Nun’ or ‘Rescue Me‘ or ‘Sex Traffic‘ (2004) or the 1990-1992 ‘Material World‘ or the 1991-1993 ‘The Hidden Room‘ or ‘The Tribe‘?

What is coconut bread?

Cleared out a tape from 1998. It began with a ‘Kung Fu The Legend Continues’ ep ‘Cruise Missiles’ which had bad ADR and big hair. The entire cast is on a cruise ship for the wedding of 2 police snitches which is taken over by bad guys led by Colm Feore. Caine is a terrible father as well as an absconder and an emotional abuser. Scot Wentworth, Calista Carradine, Stavroula Logothettis, Melanie Shatner and Doug McClure guest star. This tries for comedy. The ship is full of inherent dangers and Lula wears this dangly white stuff in her hair that hangs in her face.

This lacks cultural impact and this show isn’t internally consistent. There are ugly bridesmaid dresses. A hostage situation erupts but is defeated as the goodies beat up the baddies 1 by 1. Lula’s wedding dress looks like hooker-wear. Synth music plays. There is computer technology from the 80s. This was better than the ep of this show ‘Demons’ that was about a haunted house.

Then came a ‘Dark Skies’ ep ‘To Prey In Darkness’ in which John broods over Kim. As for Kim she hangs out with the Beats and ignores her baby. Albano lurks. Why are he and Bach suddenly wearing naval uniforms? Baddies act with impunity. There is social paranoia and this was dull.

Best Line:
“A whistleblower and a communist.”

Then came a ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Remember Nothing’ in which Xena sees an AU where she was never a warrior princess. This ep is endless talking. Then came a ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘Not Even A Mouse’ which was a Christmas ep. Jarod pretends to be a coroner. This was not painfully effective. I don’t care.

Then there was a ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ ep ‘Qpid’ in which Vash shows up as does Q. But Q drops the cast into a Robin Hood LARP. Vash as Marion wears a bright pink dress. What is the point of this?

Best Line:

Then finally there was a ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Bad Eggs’. This was the least interesting ep ever. A Lovecraftian horror menaces the school.

Best Lines:
“Now we look it up.”
“In what?”
“A book?”
