Tape Tale of 1999

Cleared out a tape from 1999. It opens with a 'Nash Bridges' ep called 'Vendetta' in which Caitlin Cross has a nemesis in the form of an ex-con (Billy Drago). Caitlin is patronised by Nash who saves the day. Boring. Then came an 'X Files' ep 'Biogenesis' which opens with pompous narration which is never a good sign. A space ship turns up in Africa, people mutter, weird stuff happens, Krycek lurks, Mulder uses the phrase "Fringe theory" and goes nuts and Skinner gurns. This was also boring.

Then came a season 1 'Charmed' ep 'Deja Vu All Over Again' in which a demon tries to kill the sisters and is aided by another demon Tempus (David Carradine) who can turn back time to achieve his aim. Andy dies, demons die, a demon shoots a cuckoo clock and how did the sisters explain Andy's dead body in their house? This was okay.

Finally there was a season 5 'Hercules: The Legendary Journeys' ep 'Darkness Rising' in which big bad Dahak is back in an insidious disguise. Hercules hangs out in Ireland with the wet Morrigan until the bad child actor druids are killed and he cops that Dahak is back. So Herc and the annoying Morrigan and her bad Orish accent head to Sumeria. This is all very boring until finally the camp incarnate darkness that is Dahak shows up possessing the dead Iolaus. You know Herc's dead BFF. Herc goes a bit Ross Kemp. There is bad acting, bad CGI and Herc is stolid.
