Tape Tales

Cleared out three tapes from 2003, 2000 and 2005 respectively. Let’s start with the 2003 tape. It contained the ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ season 7 ep ‘Dirty Girls’ which featured Caleb (Nathan Fillion) the unnecessary and annoying baddie. Faith returns to Sunnydale. Dawn, Spike, Andrew and Buffy annoy. Nathan Fillion really can’t act. Buffy is stupid and walks into a trap causing bad things to happen to Xander. This bored.

Then came an ‘X Files’ ep ‘Hollywood AD’ in which Mulder and Scully consult on a movie about them. It sure looked better than the two rubbish films that did spawn from this show. Bones dance. Uh.

Up next is a ‘Charmed’ ep ‘House Call’ where Kylie sings on the soundtrack, a Witch Doctor is called in to cleanse the house and waves a shrunken skill and Leo annoys. The sisters act OOC yet again. Uh.

Best Lines:
“You are not bringing that filthy fowl in the house.”

“Piper you can’t just vanquish an entire house. Especially not our house. People are going to notice
.”

Then finally there was ‘Smallville’ ep called ‘Rosetta’ where Christopher Reeve guest starred. Clark hangs out in the stupid caves, lies to Lex and meets Dr Swan (Reeve) who knows stuff. The words “Kal-El” and “Krypton” are used for the first time. Also the ‘Superman’ music blares. Clark the badly dressed ‘superhero’ annoys.

Best Line:
If you walk out that door it’ll never be open to you again.”

Onto the 2000 tape, there were two season 1 ‘Angel’ eps on it. First up was ‘Sense and Sensitivity’ in which Kate takes centre stage and Doyle hangs around. Yawn. Then came ‘The Bachelor Party’ in which Doyle’s ex-wife showed up bore.

Then came a ‘Nash Bridges’ ep called ‘Split Decision’ in which an ex-con fakes DID. Nash is a troll. Evan circles the drain via pills and booze and no-one cares. This was boring and to my knowledge the show never explained how Deadhead Harvey became a cop.

Onto the 2005 tape which had three ‘Dead Like Me’ eps on it. The first of which was ‘The Shallow End’ in which George’s horrible mother is horrible. George has flashbacks to her horrible youth in which mean girls were mean to her. This was dull, except for the scene in which it is suggested George was destined to become a grim reaper all along.

Then came ‘Hurry’ in which Mason, Daisy and George do boring stuff. Then came ‘In Escrow’ in which George and Reggie whine, Mason annoys and I remember that sitcom ‘Nikki’ with fondness.

Finally there was a season 2 ‘Popular’ ep called ‘Fire in the Hole’. Miss Glass puts on a musical about STD’s. This is one long public service announcement. Sam can’t sing and Mary Cherry once again steals the show. Uh.
