Everyone in town seems to have an acute behaviour disorder. Drug girl wants to revitalise Castle Rock. Jackie and drug girl are friends. Drug girl is the local estate agent and her named is Molly Strand. She has self-important verbosity and is a profound danger and she won’t help Henry sell his mother’s house. In the past, Henry burnt a videotape. This ep was increasingly unexceptional.
Molly dresses badly. There are creepy kids and Henry annoys. Why is Molly such a bitch to Henry? Molly rants like a lunatic and is full of toxic speech. This has no dramatic validity as Castle Rock corrodes away at peoples souls. Molly has excellent standing in the community. There is fractiousness. Why aren’t people questioning Molly’s sanity and intellectual prowess?
Molly is an awful, purposeful person. Henry smirks. The kid is creepy. Molly freaks out on live TV, oh boo you whore. This was a yawn. What malignant forces are at work?
“The only thing people contemplate in this town is suicide.”
“Our dads are at Shawshank.”
Olelo Ho’opai’i Make Death Sentence
Why did the stupid woman give rabid attention to the alien Typhoid Mary? There is death and negative connotations. This was not a clarifying moment. One has numb disbelief at how vacuous this ep is.
David Vincent’s grim adventures and savage hate campaign against the aliens go on. TPTB do not care for characterisation. TPTB do not know how to build sympathy for the less than loveable David Vincent. This show is already a worn formula. The alien plan is not chilling in its implications.
An astronaut turns out to be an alien. There are alien items on the moon. The quest for truth is typified by tensions and duplicity. David Vincent is difficult. Nobody asks what became of the real astronaut.
“Some Section 8 case.”
“My call service.”
“Lord help us if we’re wrong.”
“Represent a threat to us.”
Sheridan now narrates the opening credits and he sounds bored. TPTB film Sheridan in holy light and give him stupid dialogue to cultivate an image. Michael Ansara guest stars as a Techno-Mage. This ep debuts the Techno-Mages who never appeared on the show again. They got more attention in the books then on the show. Londo implies Techno-Mages aren’t human.
Why do they use science to achieve the effects of magic? Ivanova’s voice is fixed at a high-pitched tone of outrage, she’s testy and combative. There are dated looking VFX. Londo is arrogant and insane. Vir is naïve and ridiculous. Sheridan is not formidable, strong-willed or reasonable. This ep performs below expectations. What are the Old Ways that Londo goes on about? This ep was an irritant.
Sheridan de-energises the show. This ep was futile. Sheridan’s smugness causes aggravation. Ivanova has no cultural sensitivity to the Drazi. There is recurrent opposition. What did the Techno-Mages get up to on Centauri Prime? Sheridan bothers the Techno-Mages in a high pitched voice. This was not culturally rich. Londo is allergic to self-improvement. There is turmoil and the Techno-Mages refer to each other as Brother, aren’t there are female members? This was muddled and ruinously stupid as people gawp comically at silly aliens.
This did not coalesce. Randomers run around doing secret and sinister things. Ivanova stimulates unresolved disputes. This has no resonance. This had a glacially undulating plot. There was no cogitating and the narrative inertia led to dithering. Collarless shirts are worn. Ivanova needs saving by a man. This Drazi ritual was never seen again. This ep was all catastrophic failings. What is a holodemon? Things adversely impact on Londo. There is no cavalcade of whimsy. Londo is warned of what is to come. He cares not.
“Personal consequences will be profoundly unfortunate.”
“We know many things.”
“Used to ill-purpose.”
“There is a storm coming. A black and terrible storm.”
“You are touched by darkness.”
“You have a destiny before you.”
Nobody appreciates the sidekick’s existence. People are embittered and see other as transactional goods. The drag queen Julian escaped from a blacksite. Why was he in a blacksite? Daniel doesn’t notice that Hector bugged his phone. Daniel has an obvious nose job. There’s an undercover job and it’s discussed in loud voices in a bar. Clare seems dim.
There are forces of endurance. Nobody cares about Hector hanging out in a drag bar. Daniel calls Julian a monster. What did he do? People are free of sentiment. Hector crashes Clare’s undercover op. The Clare op goes completely wrong leading to a gunfight in a mall and a car chase. A rendition caused it all to go wrong, also Clare was recognised from a previous op. Hector punches a mirror because of the op collapsing in acrimony.

Flowers For She-Ra
The Horde are imperialist conquerors with no principles or policy. The miserable truth for Shadowweaver is that she is a minion. The Horde have an unlovely history. Hordak threatens to take away Shadowweaver’s magical powers. The Horde has a holy dedication to causing trouble. Catra and Adora have a divergence in fortunes. Bow is a passionate advocate for She-Ra. Hordak is cold and implacable and has a baleful glare.
She-Ra is distinctly unmeaning. The Heart-Blossom tree that Perfuma cares for is dying thanks to the Horde. There is a furore as Adora is adventuresome and people are calculating. Perfuma fights the Horde with plants and the Heart-Blossom is saved.
“Waterfall for showering?”
“I think I killed the bed!”

“Didn’t that go horribly the first time?”
“I gave you your magical power.”
The Sea Gate
“Impressive captain yell.”
“Is that a normal thing she does?”
“We’re pretty much dead.”
The Midnight Club
Various characters end up in Saturday dentition. The title card changes. Anthony Michael Hall plays the 1992 principle. The much maligned FP was a football star in his day and he didn’t want to turn out like his dad. There are creepy Blossom secrets. What’s a GameLad?
Season 1 was inadequate, this is a good ep that shows the social change as the teens become friends and then not. There is an Ascension party and people got high on Fizzle Rocks. Who was behind the game and the party? Fred’s band was called Fred Heads? There was a sing song. Present day Alice drips with judgment about the past. Alice ran from the RPG and someone killed the principle. Where did the creepy red light come from? This led to a permanent and significant falling out amongst the friends and bad choices and moral risk. What’s Fresh Aid? Who’s of severe ill-repute? There are intractable issues. The game gives Jughead mental ill-health and causes an unbridgeable gulf.
