The Detroit PD doesn’t connect Detective Grayson (from Gotham) to Robin (from Gotham). It’s been a year since Robin was seen in Gotham. What happened between Robin and Batman? Starfire dresses like a stripper and one can see evidence that this show was extensively reshot. The mayor calls Robin a violent sociopath. Starfire acts weird.
Dick Grayson feared he was becoming too much like Batman. Raven and her blue hair kills someone. Dick has a very fancy car. This was okay.
Hawk And Dove
Raven is an annoying idiot. Where are Starfire and Beast Boy? A family of assassins lurk. Dick and Dove boffed. Hank aka Hawk is a tool. Dick’s cop partner is bothered. Robin stabs a guy in the junk and another in the eye. The R symbol on Robin’s costume comes off and doubles as a throwing star. Dove is disturbed by Dick’s violence and Hawk calls him a psychopath. Raven calls Dick a liar - oh get lost bint. Dawn is hurled off a roof and Raven is carried off by baddies. This was okayish.
“A night out with the bad kids?”
“Skinbag of blood.”
This was awful. The UEO arrests Darwin, who is a DOLPHIN! There is no underlying rationale for anything that happens in this ep. The aliens from season 1 return. Sense is aggressively refuted. People say Lucas is brainwashed. The aliens show up, speaking English. The UEO is craven and paranoid. Aliens walk on treadmills. The aliens have no consistent set of objectives.
There are alien abductions. Magical Native Americans show up. Characters have an inability to react coherently. There is no deepening tension. This ep was particularly horrible. Lucas is unperturbed by his alien abduction. He also doesn’t go with the aliens; instead he continues his unacknowledged servitude on the SeaQuest.
“I want my dolphin back!”
Nowadays TPTB would big up the ‘hero’ holding someone without charge like they do on ‘Agents Of Shield’ and ‘The Flash’. Why is Nightwatch trying to recruit Talia? Sheridan is an ass. Garibaldi quits. Where is the ACLU or the JAG? Sheridan lies and bullies and forces Talia to scan Morden. Delenn is melodramatic. Delenn lies. Kosh and Delenn finally tell Sheridan about the Shadows. But Delenn lies about Anna being dead.
Sheridan tells a historically inaccurate story about Enigma, Coventry and Churchill. This ep was unnecessary and ineffective. Sheridan sees Shadows and can’t make measured decisions. This was not consequential.
“Dying cold and alone on the docking bay floor.”
“Shadows come again.”
“Woke something up.”
“Morden is never alone.”
The disease is called the Q. The Q makes people orange. If the Q is so deadly than why is patient zero still alive? The plague ravaged the world because penicillin was never discovered. O’Connell overacts. Davis makes penicillin from mouldy food out of a bin. Allison Hossack and Dean Haglund guest star.
People scowl menacingly. There is no emotional expression. The Quinn/Wade ship went nowhere. Quinn and co have come to accept inhabiting realities parallel to their own and being the self-appointed moralists in each one.
“Fascist tool of immuno-oppression.”
“About to go red eye.”
“Where’s your dignity?”
“Did you tell her about the cannibals?”
The Last Supper
“Aliens walk the Earth again.”
“Aliens walked our land.”
