Who saw 'I Love You to Death' or 'Even Cowgirls Get The Blues'?

If the story about the latest cast member to leave 'The Flash' is true, than they might as well cancel it.

I'd try the Fire and Ice challenge (spicey popcorn and frozen hot chocolate).

What is death sauce or zombie sauce or ninja sauce?

Read an 'Arrow' casting spoiler – oh FFS! Also Adrian Paul has been reduced to being a baddie on that show. How's your movie career working out Adrian?

I'd try turkey brie turnover and an ember-baked potato stuffed with caviar and sauced with kombu, cream cheese and chives.

What's pine-spruce vinegar?

I want a 42 caret D flawless heart shape diamond ring and Thierry Lasry Olympy 901 sunglasses.

It's 10 years since I first saw 'Carriers'. Which is an excellent horor with grim revelations, baleful glares, anxious moments and good intentions undermined by bad decisions and manic machismo. The truck full of body bags – bbbrrrrr.

Book Reviews: Space Inc+Alien Pregnant By Elvis part 2+Bright We Burn+The Case For Jamie 😉😆😁

Space Inc. Edited by Julie E. Czerneda

This 2003 DAW anthology is dated and sexist and wretchedly boring.

Best Line:

“When colicky or teething, they can be used as scarecrows, particularly good howlers can keep a dozen acres clear of vermin.”

Alien Pregnant By Elvis edited by Esther M. Friesner and Martin H. Greenberg, part 2

My Husband Became A Zombie And It Saved Our Marriage

This was not formidably effective.

Rock Band Conjures Satan As Manager – Group Claims “Good Business Move”

Wasn't the satanic panic over by this point? There are dumb life decisions which cannot justify this story's existence.

2,437 UFOS Over New Hampshire

Remember when UFOs/alien abduction were a cultural obsession? This is a memorable tale of a town obsessed with that concept. It was founded and designed to defend its inhabitants against such things. This has some harrowing parts.

This is a town full of alien abductees and the town was built to be a fortress. The theory that alien abduction memories are to do with sexual abuse memories is not addressed. Who is Number One? There are dated references. The author hints that the town is full of unreflective nutters deeply resistant to sense. What is the truth? Who knows.

Best Lines:

“When this town goes to sleep, it does so with both eye open.”

“If racoons are going through his garbage cans, they're aliens.”

“Two attack-trained German shepherds.”

“Undisgusied suspicion.”

“Wary and hostile.”

“Living the vegetarian, easy-vibes lifestyle of an unreformed hippie entrepreneur.”

“Spock patrol.”

“Her spouse wrote her off as hopelessly deranged when she began talking about aliens from space kidnapping her.”

Pulitzer Kills Publishing Maggot

This goes past the unplumbed depths of suck.

Best Line:


Elvis At The White House

A sexist tale about Elvis' ghost and how it impacts peoples decision making skills. This was not enjoyably uncomplicated.

The Number Of The Beast

What's a transom or a laser magazine? This was a dated rant about bar codes with no mournful conclusion.

De Gustibus...

A good tale of creepy Wall Street types.

Is Your Coworker A Space Alien?

What's a silica glass? This is a tale of aliens living without trouble. Or something. This is rather confected.

Best Line:

“Familiarity had bred inertia.”

A Break For Trends

A tale of a smart parrot, people are unconcerned, this was sad.

Bright We Burn by Kiersten White

The final book in a trilogy sees the heroine's useless idiot brother Radu , act as her ideological adversary whilst whining about and obsessing over an impossible love. Radu is utterly pathetic meanwhile Lada has dark instincts and personal frustrations. There is shifty mainipulation and ambitions for personal power. This was not substantive. Radu is insincere and intolerable. Lada does unquiely heinous things with evil glee and evokes Radu's condemnation. Radu is cynical and callous and into coercion. I felt only ridicule for it.

The Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro

This latest entry in the 'Charlotte Holmes' series is ridiclious. Holmes is a garbage human, Watson is a doormat, teenagers are meanced and people react in ridiclious ways. Holmes is abrasive, strident and irrational and does practiced mainipulation. This was a blithe affront that is not a contribution to intellectual and cultural life.

Best Lines:

“Unearned trust.”

“Time passed, as time tends to do.”

“Please-please-like-me voice.”


Movie Reviews: No Escape+The Boss Baby+La La Land +Burying The Ex +Prevenge

No Escape (2015)

Owen Wilson and Lake Bell of 'Surface' star in this idiot movie. Foreigners with unpleasant attiudes meance ugly Americans. This is a preposterous tale of outsiders, insularism and a divided society. This isn't a subtle creation. Seemingly insignificant moments are ignored by arrogant Ameircan wankers. This was tedious vacuity.

The vicious present sees a supposedly idyllic country steeped in prejudice for anyone who doesn't belong there. A mob look for a fight as discord, eventually, kicks off. This was relentlessly grim, Wilson's stupid wife and kids whine, there is no momentum and information is tangled but witheld. This was admirably fierce.

Belligerent locals have malignity and yanks are arrogant egotistical monsters. Wilson throws his screaming kids from one building to another. There is no moral sensibility or moral responsbility in this unwatchable mess.

Best Lines:

“Hold the roof.”

“British CIA.”

The Boss Baby (2017)

A boy is psychotically jealous of his baby brother (voiced by Alec Baldwin). This cartoon is intellectual nullity, which can be safely ignored.

Best Lines:



La La Land (2016)

This is trite maddening mundaness.

Burying The Ex (2014)

Anton Yelchin stars in this terrible movie. He runs around the graveyard he would be buried in. This was resoundingly awful and there is mindboggling acceptance of cheating, abuse and misygony. A man (Yelchin) treats his girlfriend as a controlling shrew and hangs out with his vile awful half brother. He plans to cheat and his girlfriend dies because of him. He moves on fast with a skank who has no shame. People fawn over the man for no rational reaosn. The girlfriend (who was not his ex) returns as a zombie. The man, his skank and the half brother plan to get rid of the girlfriend. There is no atmosphere of meance. This was horribly sexist and the dead girlfriend was never listened to or or considered.

Best Line:

“You are my problem skank!”

Prevenge (2016)

A woman kills people and has irredeemability in this terrible UK horror. There is no airtight logic in this tale of perpetual rage. There is no human decency in this undramatic mess that is not sad or sinister. It's just downright absurd and not trauma inducing.

Star Trek Discovery 2x08+Batman 1x17-1x20+Star Trek 2x13+Traitors 1x03 Reviewed 😍❤💕💖🌹💋💋

If Memory Serves

This opens with clips from 'TOS' that show Pike and Vina on Talos IV. Menawhile the Emperor is taking over Section 31. This period of Spock's life was never mentioned again. Michael and Spock slap fight. The doctor who can't act and blondie hang out. The doctor who can't act has strange silent malaise and existential misery. Ash Tyler broods. Saru bores.

There is compromise and confrontation and moral complicity. Spock and Michael arrive on a very blue Talos IV. Michael is not entirely rational. The Talos IV lot equip their fake woman Vina with waxed oiled legs, a minidress and stripper heels. Pike and Spock's first visit to Talos IV has already happened. This has a lack of immediate appeal and is not creepy awesome.

Everything is all about Michael. There are flashbacks and Vulcan's Forge shouldn't have forests. Who are the attackers that will blow up planets in the future? A cloud of suspicion hangs around Ash. The doctor who can't act screeches and has anmity and an outpouring of rage. Pike calls into question Ash's loyalties. Pike has a harsh response and icy stares.

Saru bores. Punishable offences take place. Poor Ash has had a reputational dip. Michael is defiant. I'm tired of Ash facing enormous vitriol and abuse. Spock is tired of Michael making it all about her all the time. Spock spews justifable criticism. Who is the existential threat? I don't care about the shadow over the doctor who can't act and blondie that has darkened dramatically.

An actress from '12 Monkeys' guest stars. Michael is absolutely committed to being annoying. I don't care about her and Spock's upsetting history. Poor Ash is a pariah now and it seems to stay that way. Vina (Melissa George of 'Alias') seems terrified of making the Talos IV creeps angry. There is a sense of hopelessness. Ash and the doctor who can't act fist fight.

How far does the telepathtic power of the Talos IV lot go? Spock didn't commit any murders. How does Section 31 have Terran tech? The doctor who can't act dumps Paul. Ash is regularly maligned. Pike's unreasonable. The Emperor gloats that she blew up the MU Talos IV. Discovery goes on the run. This was goodish.

Best Lines:

“Logical motivation.”

“Not entirely disinterested.”

“Committted yet another act of mutiny.”

“Answering many many questions.”


“Captain Pike never left.”

“We will converse in the ancient way.”

“The defining experience.”

“Survive another way.”

“Disengage him from logic.”

“Changed your fate.”

“How is it I can remember tomorrow?”

“What's normal about this?”

“Humans wih klingons grafted to their bones.”

“As real as it needs to be.”

“Escape what awaits us.”

“You will always be cold and distant, like a moon.”

“All sentient life in our galaxy has been eradicated.”

True Or False Face

I can recall watching this show on a relative's ancient black and white tv. Which was so old it had no remote and the channel showing it could only be viewed by continually twisting and pushing one knob. False Face shows up and never appeared again apparently his mask scared kids.

False Face has an exploding fake beard. Burt Ward is short. Bruce tells Aunt Harriet that he's off to the woods with Dick to see nature in the raw. No comment. Robin perches on a table. There is an evil midget. False Face pretends to be O'Hara. Nobody notices. The duo are tied to subway tracks with saran wrap in this medicore ep. There's only 1 train coming on the track Batman is on. Robin should be fine. This lacks merit.

Best Lines:

“Come come Dick.”

“You'll regret this, eventually!”

“The champion of justice and his youthful associate.”

“Only a criminal would disguise himself as a licensed bonded guard yet callously park in front of a fire hydrant!”

Rat Race

Alfred listens to The Cultural Hour. There is narrative anarchy that is wholly inadequate. Robin has complete negation of his personality and mind numbing servility to Batman.

Best Lines:

“Loot sacks out!”

“Keep house for my poor but honest brother.”

The Purr-Fect Crime

The batphone isn't hooked up to anything. Bruce makes Dick play 3D chess and do Latin crossword puzzles. Does Dick not go to school anymore? Catwoman strikes. There is a kitten. The bat seat belts debut. Catwoman (Julie Newmar) is a malefactor. This was good.

Best Lines:

“Evil afoot!”

“You can brush my pussy willows before you leave.”

Better Luck Next Time

Robin is in peril. The criminal element in Gotham City are inexhaustible. Batman has renown. Catwoman is pernicious. Robin has unstinting belief in the man who places him in danger every night. The non-friendly Catoman is endlessly fiendish. Catwoman beguiles. Batman has lofty rhetoric.

Best Lines:

“Willed his treasure to the underprivileged children of Gotham City!”

“Catwoman! You are not a nice person!”

The Deadly Years

Boredom is thick on the air in this terrible ep. What's a solar year? A life threatening condition affects an outpost and then the ship. This was ill-considered. Kirk's extremely hostile. Vitriolic abuse is hurled. Romulans attack and an unthankful commodore annoys. A woman whines. Kirk has no ingratiating charm. This was not commendable.

There is bad old age makeup. Kirk gets old as do Spock, Scotty and McCoy. Kirk's reputation wanes. Cue demoralisation. Kirk gets dementia and is greviously offended when people point this out. Of course in real life, Shatner outlived his former co-stars who played Scotty, McCoy and Spock.

This ep was utterly hopeless and pretty dire. I've no concern for Kirk's bad decisions and perosnal frustrations. Kirk faces damning criticism. This was done with seriousness. Scorn is poured. Kirk has a chronic and worsening condition which is promptly cured so he can shout at the inept commodore. There are dark mutterings and tragic cirumstances.

Best Lines:

“Our Federation.”

“I resist that suggestion.”

“The Romulans do not take captives.”

Traitors 1x03

Feef bores. There are unworthy thoughts. There is a reveal. People have unappealing qualities and dodgy cirumstances. There is baffling opacity and an unappealing cast of characters. This was not furiously brilliant.

Best Lines:

“Never let him out.”

“If she marries him.”
