Lovecraft and Tape Tales

I've put 'Undone Deeds' aside for the moment to read 'H.P. Lovecraft' Omnibus 1: At The Mountains of Madness'.

So William Fictner of 'Prison Break' is to the be the baddie in 'The Lone Ranger'? That's not enough to erase the stench of Depp.

Cleared out two tapes. First up is the 2002 tape that began with a season 1 'Smallville' ep 'Hug' in which Clark is dumb, Lana is a shrike, acting is bad and a mind controlling dude mind controls people. Everyone acts like a moron. Lex is mind controlled to kill Clark. I could care less and the tracking was way off. Then came a season 6 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' ep 'Smashed' in which Amy is deratted. The trio annoy. Spike and Bufy get it on and why is Willow living in Buffy's house?

Best Lines:
"You should stay here. Everyone does."

"Snyder got eaten by a snake."

Then came an 'Angel' season 3 ep 'Offspring' in which Darla shows up knocked up, Cordelia is STUPID and Holtz arrives in LA. Yawn. Finally there was a season 3 'The Pretender' ep 'At The Hour of Our Deaths' in which Jarod and Miss Parker face death and remember a girl they knew as kids in black&white flashbacks. The young Angelo is played by Jake Lloyd. This was rubbish.

The 1998 tape began with the 1985 movie 'Clue' which was based on the baord game and starred an over tanned and over acting Tim Curry. Mr Boddy is played by Lee Ving and some one kills Mr Boddy in an old dark house. There is blackmail, hysteria, over acting, 'zingy one liners' and Yvette the french maid who does not fit into her uniform. This was dull even if it had three different endings. IT MADE NO DAMN SENSE!

Then came a season 3 'Due South' ep 'Strange Bedfellows' in which Stan stalks his ex-wife and attacks Dewey. Fraser is smug and this was dull. I missed Vecchio and never warmed to Stan.

Best Line:
"You exhibited some kind of competence this evening."

Finally there was a season 2 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' ep 'Suprise' in which Buffy and Angel do it and Angel's soul flies out his ass or something. Buffy dreams, wears a short skirt and shimmer lipstick. Willow fawns over Oz. Jenny turns out to be gypsy named Janna and the judge demon is being put together. This was boring.
