Quotes, trailers and a Tape Tale of 1999

‘Sinister’ Quotes:
“So it didn’t happen in this house?”
“No. It happened in the backyard.”

‘Flight’ trailer
A pilot saves a plane from doing a ‘Lost’ style crash from 30,000 feet only to be accused of being drunk. This looks good.

‘Revenge’ 2x04 promo

‘Once Upon A Time’ 1x06 promo

‘Carrie’ (2013) teaser trailer
I am definitely seeing this. It looks good.

‘Defiance’ promo
This ad for a show set nine years after an alien conquest looks good.

‘Stargate SG1’ Quote:
You never were that bright.”

‘Down with St Desmond’s!’ Quotes:
“Annan was thoroughly bad, brought disgrace on the school and damaged its good name. She is best forgotten. You certainly cannot see her records.”

“Many strange things have happened at St Desmond’s this session.”

“Yes. Go off and talk. Old chums! Talk about Carol Annan, the girl you had expelled. My mother! I’ll have my revenge!”

‘Eastenders’ Quotes:
“I didn’t want to hurt you.”
“Well you should of thought of that, before you shoved your tongue down somebody else’s throat!”

‘Awkward’ Quote:
As expected, you’re useless.”

Reviews of ‘Alcatraz’, ’Last Resort’, ’Terminal Island’, ’The Body Electric’, ’The Way We Fall’, ’The Daemon Prism’ and ’Switch’ coming soon.

I am reading ‘The River of Shadows’.

Cleared out a tape from 1999. It opened with a ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Endgame’ in which Brutus kills the Amazon queen. Jennifer Sky guest stars as a really annoying Amazon. Brutus is still Ceaser’s right hand man, for now. There is fighting, bad acting, bad CGI and Ceaser is a one scene wonder in tacky gold armour. Brutus finally realises Ceaser is a tool. This was not good.

Best Line:
“Thank you Brutus. You’re a loyal friend.”

Then came an ‘X Files’ ep ‘Two Fathers’ in which people die, people make pretentious speeches, Agent Spender is an idiot tool, people sit in dark rooms muttering, Spender is smoking man’s son, Krycek lurks and this bored.

Best Line:
“To develop alien/human hybrids that will survive the viral apocalypse when aliens colonise the Earth.”

Then came a season 1 ‘Charmed’ ep ‘The Wendigo’ in which Prue is attacked by something. An annoying FBI agent/obvious villain (Jocelyn Seagrave) annoys. This was dull. Then finally there was a season 2 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Becoming part 2’ in which Buffy is on the run from the cops and expelled. Xander is a useless troll. Whistler and Spike annoy. The minimisation and denial of Spike’s sins begins here. Joyce is a moron. Giles is a wet hen. There is a mention of the Mayor. I don’t care about any of this. Buffy wins a pyrrhic victory and runs away. This was pretentious and self absorbed.
