Salem Witch Hunt
Goran Visnjic ramps up the crazy. Witch trials are held in a tavern. People are in no mood for compromise. I’m sure TPTB saw ’Salem’. Rufus points out that Flynn was right when in season 1 he prognosticated that he and the gang would be fighting side by side. Lucy is in peril.
Wyatt is blind to the obvious. The mother of some important American personage is in peril. Yeah and? Lucy turns the Salem witch hunt into a MeToo moment. Lucy’s dreadful mother shows up. Rufus whines and blubbers. Lucy is just fine with Wyatt running out on her and back to his wife. Did he even shower? Wyatt’s boring wife is shrill. This was boring.
“I dislike that exertion machine.”
“Dangerous paranoid times.”
“She could be the danger.”
Recall the Eli dreck? Well he’s back and annoys emotionally fragile people. He’s thankless and takes a confrontational stand. Post season 3, TPTB let this show’s tonal balance go out of control. Gabrielle listens to Eli’s lame efforts toward non-violence. There is screaming, violence, mock displeasure and no probity or professionalism.
Xena calls to Krishna for aid. Which is what caused all the fuss back in 1999. Eli is a useless load. Krishna and the king of the demons run around. Xena becomes Kali at one point. There is no serious emotion. Eli and Gabrielle are in peril. A Yeti man runs around, like a reject from ‘The Man From UNCLE’. Eli (Timothy Omundson of ‘Starship Troopers’ and ‘Seaquest’) annoys. This was not intense or enthralling.
I don’t care about the characters actions or motivations. This is ridiculous and illogical and full of stupid endless fight scenes. Eli doesn’t do humble recounting of his abasement. This ep is entirely unwarranted. Eli and Gabrielle do futile opposition to the demon. I wish Eli would just die; he would be mourned by no one. The king of the demons prances. TPTB made terrible harmful decisions about this show.
The king of the demons has malign fury and hacks Xena up and so Xena turns into Kali by again calling to Krishna for help and she reacts with hostility to the demon. There is even more fighting and a lack of narrative control and no affection or concern. This was resolutely depressing. Gabrielle sets her staff on fire. Xena makes gurgling noises like a demented meerkat. Xena says the way of the warrior was wrong for Gabrielle, such radical candour was undone in the final ever ep.
This unnecessary ep has a melodramatic scenario that lacked proportionality or reasonableness. Gabrielle throws her staff into some water hole. There are moral flaws all around and another post show disclaimer. This sucked hard and made NO SENSE!
“Cycle of violence that has ravaged the earth for centuries.”
“All rivers run to the sea.”
“This is an evil man.”
“His is the way of evil.”
“I’m not one for cryptic talk.”
“The way is not for people like me.”
“Angry ass kicking.”
The Committee On Human Rights
They Who Hide Behind Masks
This show lacks internal cohesion. Nobody has conciliation. Gordon has laxity of morals and lives without guilt. Gordon has quiet confidence in himself. He also looks jaundiced. There are murky circumstances all round. Bruce expects unconditional submission from Alfred. There is a disintegration of moral values in Gotham. There is misplaced credulity.
Barbara sells guns. Who built her revolving walls? Why does Victor dress like Pinhead? Riddler is freed from the ice. Oh come on! Riddler is not congenial. Riddler has a stalker. This is not credible or engaging. People obsess over a knife. Sofia wears a braless, backless, frontless shameless dress. Riddler gets a short-lived unwanted sidekick and has no profound gratitude to her. Riddler is violent toward yet another woman. His overacting is a blight on this show
Batbrat sneers. Who is Harper? Ra’s Al Ghul is over 2000 years old. He dunked Barbara in the Lazarus Pit and so they make out. No, just no.
“Why are you sitting in the dark by yourself?”
“If you’re going to play the part of a street kid. Learn how to talk like one.”
“Heard a lot of good things.”
“Rehashing someone else’s idea isn’t very original.”
“Unfortunately nobody stays dead in this town.”
Nobody acts normally. Flowers are ignored. Liv is shocked when Simon’s name is left off the list of the dead. It turns out he never checked in and wasn’t on the plane. So where is he and where is his luggage? Liv is shocked that Simon left his phone behind. CCTV reveals that Simon skipped out of the airport with another woman and her boy. So what are Simon’s secrets and what is going on?
Day Of Atonement
A Dark Reflection
Maia and her public taunting annoys. Bane whines about moral complications. Oh SHUT UP you tool. His negative response shows the lack of the power of reasoning on this show. Maia is rude to Izzy. SHUT UP Maia with your show of pride. Maia is ever ready to take offence at being challenged. Luke pot stirs. This was okay. Izzy uses the phrase nephilim. Max is on to demon boy. Bane is the classic creepy controlling abusive boyfriend.
“What has he been doing for 2 months?”
“Disgusted by him long before he became disgusting.”
Where Do We Go From Here
Sadie’s mother was terrible and goes on about the movement and ignores how Sadie was neglected and left alone. The ex-husband wants to use his and his ex-wife’s embryo to have a baby with his mistress.
The firm laugh at Billy’s abusive mother. The engaged woman doesn’t want to live in Iowa. Sadie’s mother is selfish. People mock Molly’s suicide attempt and want to make her a suspect. I hate these people and this terrible show.
“The Russian nanny just locked her in a closet for not finishing her homework.”
“Existed before you got there.”
“No one ever chooses me.”
