There will be no reviews of: ‘The Return Man’, ‘Boot Camp’ and ‘The Book of the Maidservant’.
BBC3 have axed ‘The Fades’ :)
Cleared out a tape from 1996 or 1997. It opened with a season 1 ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ’Prometheus’. Xena and Gabrielle join forces with Hercules and his receding hairline and his tagalong Iolaus. This looks low rent and has fights, Styrofoam, fights, Iolaus looking old, rubber monsters and fights. This is a boring embarrassment.
Then came a ‘Babylon 5’ ep ‘The Long Night’ as Sheridan prepares for a final Vorlon/Shadow showdown. The B5 crew wear their silly black uniforms and spout bad dialogue. There is bad acting, Londo shows off his silly accent, there is dated CGI, too much talking, it looks cheap and everyone looks constipated. This was boring even if Bryan Cranston guest starred as a doomed Ranger.
Then there was a ‘Quantum Leap’ ep ‘Ghost Ship!’ in which Sam flies a plane into the Bermuda Triangle. Al wears a loud peach suit. Sam is his usual thankless self. This was dull low budget stuff
