Tapes Tales of 2002 or possibly 2003

Cleared out two tapes from circa 2002/2003. The first tape had three ‘Odyssey 5’ eps on it. The ‘Pilot’ ep which saw various types on a space shuttle witness the Earth blow up, then an alien showed up and sent them back in time five years to prevent it. Cue bad CGI, a lack of professionalism all round, unnecessary swearing and Chuck’s bad parenting waging a war of attrition against his son Neil.

Neil went from druggie emo moron to star astronaut in five years. How? Why does everyone love the bland Angela? Why does Neil have such idiot friends? This was dull.

Best Line:
This is one scenario NASA really forget to programme into their simulators.”

Then there was ‘Shatterer’ where Chuck’s idiot wife and idiot elder son Marc are annoying and the gang try to prevent the future.

Best Line:
“I think he saw the end coming.”

Then there was ‘Astronaut Dreams’ in which Chuck sabotages stuff, his boss hates him and it’s all boring.

On the second tape were one ep each of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’, ‘Angel’, ‘Smallville’ and ‘Charmed’. The ‘Buffy’ was season 7’s ‘Storyteller’ which was all about Andrew mugging and was boring filler. Then was the season 4 ‘Angel’ ep ‘Orpheus’ in which there were flashbacks, Willow pulling faces, Cordelia over acting and Wesley trying to do ‘dark’. Can you believe people once thought Alexis Denisoff would be the breakout star of this franchise? Then came the season 2 ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Prodigal’ in which Lex locates his half brother Lucas (Paul Wesley of 'The Vampire Diaries') who after this ep was never seen or mentioned again. Pete takes up space. Clark and Lex bond, so sad.

Then finally there is a ‘Charmed’ ep entitled ‘The Importance of being Phoebe’ in which Cole strikes back against his ex-wife for abandoning him. The sisters baby talk and navel gaze and there is yelling.

Best Lines:
“I say we go back in there and drag her out by her hair.”

“We need a plan.”
“Okay, here it is: we go home, we vomit.”
