Babylon 5 3x16 + The Exorcist 2x07-2x09 Reviewed

War Without End, part 1

Ambassador Sinclair returns to B5 and B5 is in peril, again. The late Michael O'Hare shows he was a good actor. Is Sinclair still an Ambassador considering what is going on with Earth? Delenn makes demands and Marcus shows up. The fate of Babylon 4 is revealed. Garibaldi does nothing of note. It is never explained, why the Shadows don't attack B5. There are dated VFX. The word hell is used a lot. The whole B4 plot doesn't make much sense. Sheridan sees the future where Emperor Londo refuses to take any responsibility for what he did. This was deadeningly unsuprising.


Best Lines:

“Apologisings.”


“Good at doings.”


“There's the legacy of your war!”


“Used to being beast of burden to other people's needs.”

Help Me

John Cho does everything with utter seriousness in the endless scenes as the demon tries to intergrate with him. Maybe Nikki killed herself because she was tired of his endless moral and civic lessons. This was not ominious. This does not instill terror and fear. Andy is amazingly unreflective. This was not shadowy or fearsome. Tomas and Marcus try to exorcise Andy.


This is not a fierce conflict with ruinous consequnces. The demon is a deadly presence. Marcus spews endless moralistic lessons. Will Verity shut up? Are they doing the exorcisim in the attic? This was of no emotional value. The demon plays with Andy and Andy has no self-reflection or reasonable tones. Is the boy's bird okay? This ep is not a good thing.


Verity has innate superiority and she deserves harsh criticism. There is an utter deterimination to chew the scenery. There is a flippant dismissal of logic and Andy's on a dark path to ruin and he's obsessed with his irrevocable loss. The demon demands devotion and makes Andy feel damaging beliefs. This was not properly sinister and is of no importance. This causes significant frustration. Andy falls from perfection. This was not relentlessly unnerving. There is gurning and the exoricism doesn't really help.


This was not dramatic or emotive or relentlessly unnerving. A poisonous atmosphere lurks. Andy's a grating dullard. This was not pretty bleak. Andy has extreme self-satisfaction. This was not severe or disturbing.


Best Lines:

“One worthless mom.”


“Pop some crazy pills and cry in the bathroom some more.”


A Heaven Of Hell

Verity annoys. There are flashbacks to 1999 and a young Marcus in a bad wig. Harper's dead mother is in the bathtub. Isn't she starting to smell? She's been dead 3 days. Why is nobody minding the bird? Verity's a moron. What was with the flashbacks and the useless nun? The demon targets Tomas. Something has gone wrong. Save the bird!


Best Lines:

“How long before he fails you? Like the one that came before.”


Ritual And Repetition

Andy sweats malignancy. Tomas is in peril. People are idiots. Tomas sees Casey. Andy torments the kids and Rose. Is the bird okay? This was so very boring.
