Trailers & a 2001 tape tale

‘Game of Thrones’ Quotes:
“Make the bad man fly!”

“The heart of a stallion would make her son strong and swift and fearless, or so the Dothraki believed, but only if the mother could eat it all. If she had choked on the blood or retched up the flesh, the omens were less favourable; the child might be stillborn of come forth weak, deformed, or female.”

‘Iron Man 3’ trailer
So this is post ‘Avengers’ and the Mandarin is thrashing Tony’s life or something. So where are the Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and SHIELD during all this?

Best Line:
“Ladies, children, sheep.”

Once Upon A Time’ 1x07 promo

‘Grimm’ 2x09 promo
Looks good.

‘Revenge’ 2x05 promo

‘Eastenders’ Quote:
“The lunatic who’s decided to join our family.”

‘Raising Hope’ Quotes:
“Don’t smoke crack!”

“First breast milk hangover.”

“James Bon Jovi Chance.”

“You people are such trash.”

“Made your favourite! Shark melons!”

“In hindsight we realise that giving a serial stabber of male companions access to a knife while she stood next to her new male companion was probably an avoidable mistake.”

“At first Jimmy didn’t handle the idea of getting a serial killer pregnant very well.”

“This skid mark of a bleeding heart.”

“Till death do us part and I didn’t die.”

“I stopped going out at night mostly because I didn’t have friends or money, but I mean the murder thing didn’t help.”

“This family’s character or lack thereof.”

Cleared out a tape from 2001. It opened with a ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ ep ‘Body and Soul’ in which Harry Kim, Seven and The Doctor are chasing comets. Evil anti-hologram aliens show up so the large ham Doctor has to body share with Seven. Cue idiot comedy and a lot of people in velour. This was bad.

Then came a season 5 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Crush’ in which Drusilla returns to Sunnydale. Giles and Spike hang out in Buffy’s house for no clear reason. Dawn mouths off. There is inane babbling, toxic relationships, way too much Spike and bad tracking. This annoyed.

Best Line:
“No threesomes unless it’s boy/boy/girl or Charlize Theron.”

Then came a season 2 ‘Angel’ ep ‘The Thin Dead Line’ in which the idiot Angel is estranged from the gang plot drags on. Anne’s homeless shelter is besieged by zombies. I do not care.

Then there was a ‘Jack of all Trades’ ep ‘Hamnesia’ in which Em gets amnesia and frequents a dive bar known as the ‘Drunken Pig’ and tells the evil Frenchies that Jack is the Daring Dragoon. The talking parrot talks, Em and Jack roll around in a pig pen, Em apparently invented C4 and there is a running of the pigs. This amused in parts even if the evil Frenchies won’t accept that Jack is the Daring Dragoon even though he is the only American on the island!

Best Lines:
“This man is a worm not a serpent.”

“Haven’t you noticed the Dragoon’s American accent? His distinctive jaw? Haven’t you wondered why Jack is never around when the Dragoon is?”

Finally there was a ‘Cleopatra 2525’ ep 'Juggernaut Down!' that had Hel in a bad wig, Cleo sporting nasty pink lipstick, a Bailey falling down a shaft, Betrayers , stuff blowing up, bad blue screen, bad CGI and this was terrible.

‘The Mammoth Book of Horror 23’ Quotes:
“LA’s just full of Satanists.”

“So much for any lingering hope that this could be explained away by sedimentary settlement.”
