Tape Tales of 2002 and 2003

Cleared out two more tapes. The tape from 2002 began with an ‘Odyssey 5’ ep entitled ‘Vanishing Point’ in which the old isolate someone and convince them reality isn’t real trope is played out. Chuck rants and verbally abuses his son Neill in between brainwashings. Dull, the show’s themes of time travel/Transhumanism/Earth being blown up/aliens plot arc did intrigue but was overshadowed by Chuck’s terrible terrible acting.

Next ep up was a dull ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ season 7 ep entitled ‘Beneath You’ in which Spike does a large ham mad act, Buffy works as a guidance counsellor, Willow wallows in self pity and Xander expresses no remorse for his horrible treatment of Anya. Then came the boring ‘Angel’ season 4 ‘Deep Down’ in which Wesley’s amoral tough act was ridiculous. Lilah, Gunn and Fred all were boring and Connor got slapped around.

Finally was a season 2 ‘Smallville’ ep entitled ‘Heat’ which Clark got his heat vision, Lex married a mind controlling meteor freak and everyone looks like they’re coated in bacon grease. This was okay and it was nice to be see people being nice to Lex.

The 2003 tape had the season 7 ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ ep ’Empty Places’ in which Buffy is so rude and horrible that people turn against her. Buffy stamps her foot, screams, punches people and wails about Spike. Andrew is unfunny. Caleb has a chance to kill Buffy and doesn’t. This was awful. Then came the ’Angel’ season 4 ep ’Shiny Happy People’ in which Angel and co and Jasmine talk, talk, talk and talk some more. This was boring. Finally there was a ’Cleopatra 2525’ ep entitled ’No Thanks for the Memories’ in which Sarge is accused of murder, yawn.
