2001 Tape Tale + Fringe season 5 trailer!

‘Fringe’ season 5 trailer
The Observers have taken over. Why are there no female Observers? Why did Peter and Olivia call their child Henrietta? What is with the Soviet style uniforms and facial tattoos? Will Desmond from ‘Lost’ be in this? Looks good.

Best Line:
“This is war and we’re losing.”

‘She Walks in Beauty’ - by Lord Byron excerpt
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies
And all that’s best of dark and bright

Reviews of ‘Hunted’ coming soon.

Cleared out a tape from 2001. It opened with an ‘X Files’ ep ‘Empedocles’ in which Monica, Mulder and Doggett rant about a ‘satanic’ case. Scully references ‘Mad About You’ and I do not care.

Then came the season 5 ‘Buffy The Vampire’ ep ‘The Gift’ in which Buffy is willing to let everyone everywhere die to save Dawn. Suddenly it seems the monks made Dawn out of Buffy and the troll dude from an earlier ep was actually a troll god. WTF? One does wonder in season 9, with no more magic in the world. Why does Dawn still exist? Ben wanders around in Glory’s muumuu until Giles kills him. There was never any follow up on that. Dawn snots. Xander proposes to poor Anya. This was boring and obviously filmed on a set. Glory wants to go home, maybe she shouldn’t have wasted time taking baths. There are bad SFX. Buffy dies. Why oh why, did they not get rid of the irritant Dawn in this ep? The ritual is based on bleeding the key but before the key was made into Dawn it was energy. So why is the ritual based on blood? This ep lacks any logic.

Best Line:
“I noticed you’re talking whereas in your position. I would attack me.”

Then came an ‘Angel’ ep ‘There’s No Place Like Plrtz Glrb’ in which the idiot storyline set in the demon realm finally ends. Fred joins the team and Cordelia is stupid. Groo shows up. What was the point of any of this? Finally there was a ‘Nash Bridges’ ep ‘Jump Start’ in which crap happens.
