The Darkness At The End Of The Lane

This is a thing? Archie is a predator? What is memory lane? They're in an alternate timeline? A predator thing pees on Pathfinder on Mars. They run into alternate versions of themselves. A predator seems to be wearing a massive codpiece. This was okay even if I've no real idea what is going on.


Best Lines:

“This is Riverdale, Betty. We have aliens and a girl who can smell money and one time, we summoned the devil.”


“He's going to put that assault rifle back where he found it.”


“How dare you interrupt my self-pity with your disgusting optimism.”

Sabrina The Teenage Witch Issue 4

An overheard spell, an aggressive teacher, Sabrina's 2 love interests yell and the aunts seem to be missing. So Sabrina casts a big spell to Salem's shock. This was goodish.


Best Line:

“This town went full mental like, overnight.”

Afterimage

TinkerTrill gets too much screentime. She and Vic took over season 7. Why is Ezri Dax on DS9? I don't care about her fraught realtionship with the crew. Ezri Dax acts like a teenager. Jadzia loved bloodwine. Ezri is a counsellor yet in the novels became a ship's captain. Yeah, right. She's perennially upbeat and not always capable of expressing herself sensibly.


Worf's intractable about not wanting Ezri around. Sisko has known Dax as Curzon, Jadzia and Ezri. Garak yells and groans. This strains the limits of logic. Ezri is an assistant counsellor in training yet is told to examine Garak's head.


Worf snubs Ezri and is filled with rage and is acrimonious. Ezri is rude to Bashir and spills Jadzia's secrets. Ezri has a prevelant negative attiude. Worf manhandles Bashir. Ezri's presence has negative effects. This was nonsense and full of gross improbabilities. There are no subtle nuances just fake crying and Sisko pulling strings for Ezri.


The unrelenting, violent, destructive conflict of the Dominion War is not featured. Ridicule is heaped on Ezri. Garak screams. There is no intensity. Why does Ezri wish to be on DS9 instead of the USS Destiny? This was incompetence.


Best Lines:

“Too many memories here.”


“I do not know you. Nor do I wish to know you.”


Take Me Out To The Holosuite

Sisko challenges a bigoted anti-human Vulcan crew to a baseball game. The UFP theme anthem plays. The game is won, sorta. This was entirely terrible.


Best Line:

“DEATH TO THE OPPOSITION!”

Pilot

A bomb blows up a building. FBI agents are useless and people die because of them. Hey Ruby Ridge and Waco. FBI agents act like jackbooted fascists. There is SJW crap. This was full of delusional morons. This was crap.


Best Line:

“Screw your warrant!”

Liar

There is more Mrs Lawrence drama. DIE June DIE. June learns you just can't phone anyone now. June is promised a kind Commander. Lawrence talks about new territories. Lawrence raided museums. Fred's arrested. No, just no. June the wonder Handmaid kills a Commander with a pen. Oh piss off!

Path Of Smoke: A Novel Of The Parallel Parks by Bailey Cunningham

The 2nd in the trilogy sees change. One of the group has 'died' in Anfractus and cannot return so his friends lie to him about the mystical realm which does not go well.


Plots are afoot and people begin to learn what new world Anfractus' ruler aims to build. The group are driven away from all hope. All norms disappear, people are socailly insecure and have willed hopelessness. The 'dead' character is exiled from the orbit of his friends lives which leads to unstartling consequences.


We learn more about the park's attraction to the characters and they realise far more people are playing the 'LARP' than they realised. People have conflicting perspectives. The grad students are not ferociously intellectual, it seems playing a magical LARP every night would have a general incomptability with everyday life.


Things seem to be kicking into apocalyptic overdrive and while this lacks dramatic tension and brooding darkness, it is good. There are reckless stupid decisions and no hope of escape from the LARP. There is no ferocious intensity and this isn't era defining but this is enjoyable fantasy.


Best Lines:

“They had a way of closing ranks against you.”


“Your own family might not be on your side?”


“This is the exposition scene.”


“How did the park even work? Was it magic? Was it a curse?”


“Nobody chose normal.”


“Made him practice acceptable eye contact.”


“An RPG set in ancient Rome.”

Anne Heche, Eric Roberts and Kathleen York star in this unnecessary film.
