Dukat stops being mad and suddenly becomes threatening. The inevitable reckoning between him and Sisko would not happen until the very last ep of the show. This was okay but lacked considered decisions.”
Under His Eye
June bullies a Martha so she can see 'Agnes'. Emily is accused of criminal activity in Gilead. Wives in DC have to wear the veil outdoors but can dance with their husbands. Where are the wives guards while they walk the streets? Women aren't allowed out unwatched in Gilead!
What happened to the family who lived in the unrestored house? June is stupid and selfish. June and her Commander's wife go for a walk. They wouldn't be allowed to! This ep is a thing that happened. Gilead wants the refugees back.
This ep is calamitous. June is deeply unpleasant. Moira attacks someone as does Emily. Are the 3 Gilead daughters June sees, actually shackled to an Aunt? June will not accept she's been left without recourse.
Why do the dangerous religious extremists let June live? June's stupid and the cause of others ruin. There is no bold orignality. Men and wives don't socialise in the book but they do in this show. This was suffocatingly boring and irksome. June attacks a pregnant Handmaid and gets away with it. June is not plausibly attuned to what morality looks like. Her quest is evidently futile like this ep.
“Salute their devotion.”
“There is no peace with Gilead!”
“Some Commander place doing Commander things.”
Lovely Dark And Deep
People resolve each others ruin. A grim path is followed. People have been given up on. This ep fails badly. This has no terrifying charm. There is escalatory action. This is charmless. There is no melancholic awareness. TPTB have scant regard for quality. This was done with questionable logic. Bad guys cackle gleefully.
This was not delightfully apocalyptic. There is no character integrity. The Purge is about elevating undeserving men. One feels visceral loathing for the characters who are frequently murderous and of questionable repute. A rich jerk has a social status that his victims would probably never have reached. Just work does not translate into just rewards.
People are spectating. When does this take place in relation to the movies? The whore is stupid which has no tragic effect.
“You shouldn't even be living here!”
“If this is about scholarships, why am I in a bikini?”
“What about human decency?”
“This is my right!”
Giving Time Is Here
People attempt to gain relevance with brutal force. There is a reveal about the cult. There is hysterical rage and postures of threat and things done maliciously and baser intentions and melacholic turbulence. Is there an inescapbale endgame? This show is not a resounding success. This ep is made by the skill free.
This ep is predictably disastrous. Why are the couple letting the homewrecking lying crazy slut lurk in their house? Kick her out on the street! Maybe I'd care more if I'd seen 1x01-1x03. The pyscho slut strikes. Reed Diamond makes a speech. There is social dislocation. This ep was not even a worthy bore. It was just tedious. This was a story of woe.
“Stop living his life.”
“Not a fan of your cult.”
They Will Participate
This was not moving or meaningful. This goes fatally wrong as TPTB kill off the only interesting character. This malicious nonsense tests credulity. This isn't compellingly dark. Exposition flies. Due to the poisonous influence of the Purge, an odious man rants and kills. This was insignicant. This was not grimly enjoyable nor is it highly distinctive.
“You cannot run from my justice!”
“Nobody's getting mercy.”
“You're the reason we need the Purge!”
Santa Clarita Diet Season 3, Part 1
I watched 3x01 to 3x05. Joel has a rictus grin. People lack sense. Characters have sheer intransigence, plain stupidity and poor judgement. There is a cult, the meddling Anne is abruptly written off the show and Goran Visnjic shows up playing a troublesome adversary. People are ill fated and make bellicose noises.
There is no dread of doom or ominious power. This show is fatally frivolous and overly casual and it is full of unconvincing storytelling that is ultimately unsatisfying. Abby annoys and there is self conceit. This is rather a disappointment.
Shelia has significant opportunities to negatively impact people. There is no grim satisfaction just mounting evils and moral corruption. There is erosion of moral standards. Joel is like the stupid best mate in a 90s movie. This was not emotionally complex. This was not disturingly probable. Ramona shows up. There is ever-recuring stupidity.
“We're going to spend years in this lab together.”
“Do his work on Earth by killing evildoers.”
“See who put this knife in our door, because, that's curious.”
“Mom! Never be in public!”
“Look who's afraid to punch a cop!”
“Is it so hard to include me?”
“My serenity room.”
“I will eat your son.”
“I know what thinking is sweetie.”
“Rich in grain and had a port city.”
“The lock on your sidedoor's broken. Now.”
“Agreed upon iconography.”
“Old people magazines.”
“I'm sorry if I caused marital discord.”
“You won't survive the reload.”
“Shot a moth with a crossbow from 15 feet away.”
“Made the lemon squares that were so good Amanda threw her batch down the stairs.”
I Am Bane
Alfred has no life outside of Bruce. Things happen in the city. Bane lurches around. Barbara has her baby. Bane is suffering from severe untreated PTSD. Gordon is not sorry. Ra's Al Ghul's daughter shows up to show off her crap acting. Riddler and Penguin do idiot comedy. Hugo Strange creepy monotones. Alfred tries to fistfight Bane and gets his ass handed to him. The military would really bomb a city judged lost?!? Oh come on! This version of Nyssa is terrible.
“Wasn't quite as dead as we hoped.”
“Make a general threatening gesture.”
“Gotham city is lost.”
