Movie Review: A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (1993)

It's 1963 and the Walton clan (and their 80s perms) are reuniting for Thanksgiving. Richard Thomas stars and there is exposition and Pa Walton is an ass who ill-uses people and exercises abusive control over his family. JFK dies and there is a completely inaccurate description of JFK's links to the civil rights movement. This has a languid alienating pace and this was a true commitment to boredom.

This was done dead seriously. The ages seem off. Shouldn't the clan be much older in 1963? There is family festering resentment which is shrugged off. A stroke ridden actress who can't speak is dragged onscreen. This was dull.

Best Line:

“Seen keeping late hours with a married man!”

Book Review: Alien Pregnant By Elvis part 3

Alien Pregnant By Elvis edited by Esther M. Friesner and Martin H. Greenberg, part 3

Hitler Clone In Argentina Plots Falklands Reprise Or Death And Transfiguration

Hitler is alive and well and living in South Ameirca. He tries to let people know but it is dismissed as a mad rumour. This is played for comedy and is utterly taste free.

Best Lines:

“Sullen indignation.”

“An anger that seemed capable of assuming monstrous proportions.”

Group Phenomena

A reporter uncovers a terrible secret but realises he can do nothing to improve his situation. This was okay and has some narrative amiguity as the reporter learns another race mainipulates events and controls humanity's view of them.


This is a very short story about the return of lost animals. This was eminently implausible.

How Alien He Really Was

This is another very short story about an alien stranded on Earth and the awful predicament he is in. This is sad.

NASA Sending Addicts To Mars: Giant Government Coverup Revealed!

NASA landing on Mars goes awry in this sexist and racist tale. This has an unpleasant tang of fakery.

Best Line:

“Down-home grin.”


Furries! Enough said.

In Search Of The Perfect Orgasm Or Doing It With A Big Lizard Can Be Fun

The author gets pervy about a 16 year old. This is full of grossness and slut shaming.

Saving Sam's Used UFOs

A reporter runs afoul of a used UFO saleman in this medicore tale.

Danny's Excellent Adventure!

There is Dan Quayle mocking in this dopey tale.

Best Lines:

“Maybe he's just a moron.”

“How else do you explain his apparent unfamiliarity with history, geography, even the English language as it's currently spoken?”

Royal Tiff Yields Face Of Jesus!

England's gone Druid and various characters have whacky hijinks. This was good even if the estranged royal couple are obviously Charles and Diana.

Best Line:

“Whimpering for mercy she knew would not come.”

Traitors 1x04+Durrells 3x05&3x06+Arrow 7x11+Supergirl 4x11+Star Trek Deep Space Nine 3x01+ 3 more

Traitors 1x04

There are more ill-thought out choices in this howlingly wretched show. I've no idea what happened in this ruinous incompetence.

The Durrells 3x05

Italians move to Corfu and the mother is jealous that Spiro pays attention to them. Larry and Leslie volunteer for the fire brigade. Mussolini is mentioned . Larry is intemprate. Leslie fails a fire brigade test. The Italians rile.

Gerry looks at tortoises. The Italians are convincingly awful. Gerry gets a girlfriend. Larry considers himself brilliant, but he's forgotten now. Whilst his brother Gerry is an untouchable cultural figure. Did batteries exist in the 1930s? There is no motivating factor to care. This contemptuously repudiates sense. There is rampant hyprocisy and this sucks hard and there is moral judgement.

Best Lines:

“Lazy bastards.”

“Uninvited drunk.”

“Dribbling and being volcanically sick.”

“Impregnanted a peasant!”

“A bit dodgy.”

“If he comes. Hide.”

The Durrells 3x06

The mother drools over Spiro and this was consistenly dull. There is to be a birthday party for Gerry. The mother is useless. Margo's thick. The uneducated, undisciplined clan are whiny morons. Spiro is sad. There is no prestige sheen. Gerry's 13 and rejects docility and he is affronted. This was deeply discordant. Larry has sex with a teenage girl at his young brother's birthday party. Oh gross.

Best Lines:

“Noisy evil bastard.”

“Uninteresting life.”

“Hot, secret place.”

“Crucible of despair.”

Past Sins

For years Oliver has kept quiet about his father murdering the other survivor on the lifeboat and it never even occured to him to say anything to the man's family. It was his own bodyguard that Robert murdered! FFS! Robert Queen is bigged up by people. Oliver has another half-sister. Felicity fawns over Oliver. The ever stoic Oliver won't emote. Felicity gets away with her crap. China White shows up. There are mentions of the Suicide Squad.

Joe Wilson shows up. Where is Slade? Or Grant Wilson? Cupid lurks. Curtis whines. People talk about a new big bad named Dante. Diaz lurks. Dead Laurel's alcholism is mocked. Oh classy TPTB classy. Oliver mumbles and he and Felicity have ditched William again. Oliver faces retribution for his family's sins, again. This was dull.

Best Lines:

“Measures will be taken.”

“Playing make believe lawyer.”

“Attacking randos outside of a bar!”

“Way past apologies!”

Blood Memory

This is actively stupid overwhelming mediocrity. Commiegirl does stuff. This was far from impressive. Kara whines. Brainy bores and talks like he is brain damaged. Nia talks too much and steals her sister's gift. There is discordance and Kara has a chaotic lifestyle.

Kara's aghast at Alex doing her job. This was not compelling. There is no creeping dread and Kara is emotionally cold. There is no dignity or respect. Kara treats people badly and with defensiveness or even scorn due to her sense of righteousness. Kara talks in a woeful tone, oh SHUT UP BITCH. Kara has absolutely no regard. Kara attacks Alex for trying to stop a crazy alien. FFS.

This is not era defining. Everything is all about Nia. Oh boo. Nia's sister is upset for Nia stealing her birthright. So Kara tells Nia her secret but not Lena. Oh die bitch. Interest in this is rapidly declining. Kara enjoys intimidating humans. Nia inflicted emotional damage on her sister and doesn't apologise.

Best Lines:

“Rage, not the fun kind.”

“Red shoe dance.”

“Rage candy.”

The Search Part 1

Dax has a new 1940s hairdo that only lasted for 2 eps. The crew plan how to defend the station from the Dominion's heavily armed mobile force. The Defiant and a Romulan show up. Sadly the Romulan only lasted 2 eps. Eddington debuts. Odo whines and screams. The Founders are encountered. The Defiant is attacked and fires its big ass phasers. Odo shows off his pathological selfishness. When did Bashir learn to fly a UFP warship? This was goodish apart from Odo's tantrums.

Best Lines:

“No families, no science labs.”

“Battle fleet.”

“Witless prattle!”

Shadowhunters 3x12&3x13

Original Sin

This does not leave you enraptured. WTF is with the obsession with the Riley Finn of this show; Simon? Enough with Bane. Cain lurks in the sewers. There is no justifable reason for Simon to dominate the plot, he's selfish and useless. How can Cain speak English? This was trivial and unserious. There is sap and Paris. Jonathan is obvious loon. One feels an absence of plaudits for this drekc. Nobody helps Cain.

Best Lines:

“You won't help me?”


“Disgraced our name.”

“I see you have the proper trinket.”

Beati Bellicosi

Werewolves and vampires have issues. This was not of social beneift. This has way too much selfish useless Simon. I wish Maia would shut up and go away. Clary and Jace get it on. There are grim possibilities for the future. There are terse threats. Clary has a perfect manicure, even after everything. There is a cliffhanger and this was not a defining ep.

Best Line:

“That is not how help works.”

Orange Is The New Black 1x09


The meth head threatens to lock someone in a drier and turn it on, sadly it does not happen. People shrug off the life destroying ramifications of their acts. The guards are AWFUL. Piper ends up in solitary. Someone else boasts about shooting a bald eagle and cooking it for Thanksgiving dinner and going to jail for it. There is a fight and drugs are smuggled. There is bullying and grossness. Piper makes stupid decisions. No just stop.

Best Lines:

“They don't allow gay people on The Rapture bus!”

“Smug little bitches.”


Babylon 5 4x17

The Face Of The Enemy

The Earth civil war drags on. Sheridan wonders why people don't surrender to his god emperor self. Sheridan's dad has been arrested. People plan to kill telepaths. Nobody ever seemed to care. Garibaldi doesn't care that he works for a space nazi and that Lise is married to said nazi. Bester wins. There is bad acting.

Nobody ever cared that Bester mind controlled Garibaldi for most of this season. Number One whines. Lyta is useless. The telepaths in stasis are still frozen. This looked cheap and shoddy. Sheridan lowers himself to speak to Garibaldi. Oh piss off Sheridan. Ivanova screams and Sheridan is dumb.

A lot of people are nasty anti-telepath bigots. Lyta tells a story about a serial killer who killed telepaths and are we supposed to feel sorry for the serial killer? Lyta talks of coming telepath v mundane war. Instead in season 5 we got Byron. FFS! Sheridan is captured because he is a tool. The capture scene is not juicy overwrought tension. Nobody really cares about Clarke.

People are needlessly shallowly cruel in this excruciatingly rudimentary ep. Garibaldi is set out in desolation by grinning nihilistic lunatic Bester. There is exposition and please never reboot this.

Best Lines:

“How many?”

“A lot.”

“It stinks of a set up.”

"Controlled or dead."

"Adjust you."
