A Time To Stand
The awesome fleet has been battered and decimated. O'Brien scathingly condemns the war. Bashir is angry about their horrible life circumstances. Social outsider Garak whines and is dismissive. There is apocalyptic violence and mayhem making by the Dominion. Garak does pointless rambling and desperate attention seeking in supremely irritating fashion.
There is no searing purpose. Sisko does moral authority. I question Worf's relevance on this show. There is chronic uncertainty. The Dominion have DS9. Dukat does a smirking performance. There are usurpations of common decency. Dukat's alliance with the Dominion which he negligently adopted is leading to disastrous results.
People have brazen determination and make emotional observations. Admiral Ross shows up. The uniform is not flattering to him. The books ruined Ross. Weyoun is a toxic example of bipartisanship. He has aloofness and arrogance. Ross gives Sisko a mission in the captured Jem'Hadar attack ship. O'Brien is irritated. The Jem'Hadar ship has no viewscreen, no chairs, no food and no sickbay.
Garak's runaway verbosity bores. Dukat has craven indifference. Odo has good intent. Kira knows how little value the Dominion attaches to her life. This was okay but with shonky dated VFX. Things go wrong.
“Only 14 ships made it back to our lines.”
“14? Out of a 112!?!”
“The Federation collapses and Earth becomes another conquered planet under the Dominion.”
“Afraid we'll take the station away from you again?”
Rocks And Shoals
This is ep 2 of 6. The Dominion/Cardassian allaince is not an untroubled friendship. The captured Jem'Hadar ship crashes on a planet in a dark matter nebula. Another ship has already crashed here. Phil Morris guest stars. It's odd to see sunlit scenes on this show. A dying Vorta plots. A horrendous tragedy unfolds. Kira wears a silly plastic belt. Jake annoys.
The shockingly nasty Vorta has a sinister edge. Jake betrays his ineptitude. Actors seem to be sweating off their alien makeup in the sunlight. Things disastrously escalate out of control. A deadly conflict leads to the Vorta dispatching Jem'Hadar to their doom. People have fixed ideological positions. Jake is supremely irritating and he and the Vorta are self-indulgent nonsense merchants.
A Vedek stages a protest. There are parlous situations all round. Kira exudes misery from every pore. The Vorta has shocking disregard. The Jem'Hadar will never please thier 'gods' no matter how hard they try. This was okay.
“Everything's off line!”
“We will hold this world for the Dominion until we die.”
“They're here and they're not leaving.”
“What the inside of a Vorta looks like.”
Vicky is arrested, she ran off to Boston after stealing money and ditching her daughter and forging a consent form. The daughter is sad she's always being ignored in favour of the attention seeker. Vicky ignores her family and is unrepentant. The attention seeker is selfish and attention seeking. Why is the husband being blamed? Vicky is a drama queen who is guilty of emotional abuse. Vicky screams and shrieks. The attention seeker gets everything due to attention seeking. This was mediocre. Vicky gets away with her crap.
There is a prophecy. The sisters have boring issues. This was trite and weak and ridiculously inept. Hunter annoys. Niko screams and throws hissy fits. The sisters intend the consequences of their acts.
“Evil is upon us!”
Visions And Omens
This tv show is based on the infamous incident when a man deemed a vicious nutcase and his followers deemed damned memebers of society who refused to buy into what the culture held to be self evident. The opening credits are sad. Michael Shannon, Taylor Kitsch, Rory Culkin, Melissa Benoist, Camryn Manheim and John Leguizamo star. Ruby Ridge takes place
Public discontent with big government grows. People committed the sins of being intellectual curmudgeons. David ran an alleged idyllic church. They defied societal expectations but the ATF inflamed the situation. The ATF have cold distain for those at Ruby Ridge and those at Waco. Ruby Ridge was covered up, how did TPTB get away with being hostile and dismissive about killing a woman and her son? The ATF showboat and this ep was not overcrowded with incident. This was okay.
“They're coming for me.”
“They've got tanks, helicopters and troops. For what? For a family that lives by themselves in the woods?”
We are at fault.”
This absurdity was not giddly engaging. Alfred is servile to Bruce. A hand puppet strikes. Gordon is dumb and people have an inability to contribute in any positive way. Various comic baddies lurk. This was poo. Interest is forever lost. This was underachieving and not worthy. Bruce will in future terrorise his Robins into submission.
