Star Trek Deep Space Nine 4x07 Reviewed

Little Green Men

Nog is off to Starfleet Academy. Charles Napier and Connor O'Farrell guest star. Kira has a girly hairstyle and who did the Ferengi buy Warp technology from? The Ferengi (Quark, Rom and Nog) end up in Roswell 1947 via an accident.


There is smoking and would be comedy and silly dialogue. Truman is POTUS. This is just another life experience. There is a dog and politics and power relations. Quark whines about personal and institutional injustices. There is a negative outcome feared. This was a lost copportunity – too much Ferengi crap.


There is a troubling example of the military moron cliche. The Ferengi are obnoxious. This can't incentivise one to care. Understanding prevails. There is sexism and a sharp escalation of rhetoric. This was complete nonsense. The nurse and prof nod apprvingly and nonchalantly.


Best Lines:

“Unified global economy.”


“Primitive global economy.”


“Leaders of a vast interstellar Federation.”


“Have you ever heard of the Bell riots?”


“But doesn't this Gabriel Bell human look just like Captain Sisko?”

“All humans lookalike.”


“Trapped 400 years in the past.”


“Piano playing democrat.”


“Mankind will travel to the stars and take its place in a vast alliance of planets.”

“Federation.”


“That idiot in Roswell who told the press we captured a flying saucer.”

Teen Titans Annual 2 + Marvel Zombies Resurrection Issue 1 Reviewed

Teen Titans Annual 2

The Teen Titans are finished says Batman. So? Who does he think he is? What became of Starfire and Raven? Deathstroke is dead? Who are these Titans? Who is the blue guy? Batman's shocked, shocked that the vigilante Teen Titans are fascists. Deathstroke isn't dead. Sigh. Who is Red Arrow?


Batman tells the Teen Titans off. Hypocrite much? How does this tie in with the idiot Joker War story and the Ric crap? Why is Deathstroke feuding with a child aka Damien Wayne? Who is Djinn? There are many, many incoherent fight scenes. Red Arrow is Emiko? Just kill Deathstroke already! Emiko oddly isn't bleeding to death after Robin hits her with a sword.


Batman ignores his own moral bankrupcy and hypriocy. It's honestly not gonna get any better for Damien. For once Batman doesn't beat his Robin. Damien punches his dad. The Teen Titans stand around, watching Damien's tantrum. Alfred's dead and Dick got shot in the head and so Damien is sad. Dick got shot in the head and everyone in the Batfamily ignored him.


This was spectacle heavy. Damien saw Alfred killed in front of him? Was this when Bruce was punching Tim, ignoring Dick and his TBI and hanging out on a beach with Selina Kyle? Damien stomps off. Is Batman still married to Selina Kyle? Damien had hatred for his intractable mad dad and gets away with his crap. This was good.


Best Lines:

“They fear the Teen Titans now.”

“The only one afraid of you Robin......is us.”


“Do not be intimidated by Batman's...theatrics.”


“And how can kill him again?”


“I thought we'd died and gone to hell. Again.”


“We both know how it always ends for Robins...”


“All that time being a good little boy......made you weak.”


“I do not need another one of those lectures in those empty halls.”


“I am the logical conclusion to the path you set yourself on years ago.”

Marvel Zombies Resurrection Issue 1

We get zombie Vulture and zombie Human Torch and who are these people? An alien cat named Chewie lurks. Who is Forge? What is a metaspawn? Zombie Nightcrawler attacks and there is a repurposed Sentinel. Peter is a whiny wet rag and the x-mansion is thrashed. Zombies are called respawned. Where is Sue? Who is Val? What happened to Franklin?


Cap, Iron Man and Thor are all gone. I'm concused. Did I miss zome Marvel Zombie Resurrection stories? There is exposition. There is talk of deadheads and someone recognises Spider-Man out of costume. There is graffiti.


This is confusing. It's YEARS since the previous special? There is talk of the Galactus Hive. Zombie Beast attacks. What is the legacy virus? Zombies can talk. What became of Reed Richards and Sue Storm? This is a hard and complicated situation. What is the Eighth Pillar? Where is the Galactus Hive? An undead giant alien stomping around is somehow hard to locate. Max and Bucky are mentioned. We know who Bucky is. Who is Max?


This was not wickedly murky. This is an undramatic cataclysm.This has no cohesive narrative. Peter has rancour. This was purgatorial. Peter has fulminations. There is general uncertainty. There is a social crisis. Ill fated decisions are made. There are grim facts.


Zombies do coercive intimidation. There is grim subject matter. We see the zombie Fantastic 4. What happened to Franklin's powers? Who is Moonstone? And how did she get infected between pages? Blade shows up. This was tedious trickery and this was a nightmare ordeal. The overarching theme is the search for hope in a time of despair. Oh piss off.


Best Lines:

“Where can we even go?”


“Do you seriously not care?”


“Enough food to last 500 years.”


“What, like a minefield?! Geez, man, this was a school!”

“I remmber this place getting bombed out like fifty times.”

“Kids used to eat lunch out here!”


“Sickos who used to worship the respawned.”


“Are the others gone?”


“You got no idea what lives here...what's comin' for you right now.”


“As low as it gets for me.”


“Your creepy monologuing.”


“For us there is no death.”


“You were stolen from us.”


“They were exposed to radiation unlike anything on Earth.”


“He whose hunger will cleanse all worlds. They wait for you.”


“He who hungers gathers his armies in the blackspring: the world behind the world, where the ending begins.”
