They plan to reset time. Oh dear, because that worked out so well last time.
Cleared out a tape from 1999. It opened with a ‘Star Trek Voyager’ ep ‘Equinox part 1’ in which Voyager finds another Starfleet ship in the Delta Quadrant. This murky looking ep guest stars Titus Welliver as one of the shady Equinox crew. The Equinox crew were never seen or mentioned again after part 2. Everyone talks too much. Janeway is self righteous. No-one ever made the hard choices. This was dumb. Then came a ‘Vengeance Unlimited’ ep ‘Ambition’ in which a never before mentioned friend of KC’s is killed by an evil political family. Mr Chapel exploits stupidity and greed to punish the sinners. This was dull.
Then there was a season 3 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Homecoming’ in which Cordelia and Buffy both want to be homecoming queen. Faith lurks. Buffy sulks. Willow and Xander have emotional adultery. This was unfunny as Mr Trick and co tried to kill Buffy and Cordelia. Scott dumps Buffy. This was dull and reminded me just what a little burk Xander was. He never cared about how he hurt Cordelia and Anya.
“This is starting to be sad.”
“Have a nice death.”
Then finally there was a ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ ep ‘Surprise’ in which Hera makes a deal with Callisto to kill Hercules’ friends and family. There is apparently chocolate in Ancient Greece. Hercules in this ep remembers that Hera destroyed his family. Kevin Smith looks weird when he is not playing Ares. Iolaus and co trip on Callisto’s poison. Callisto overacts and eats from the Tree Of Life. There is foreshadowing of season 5 and bad acting. There is chalky make up on Callisto and silly fights. This was uninteresting.
Gerry Anderson RIP.
“It’s the only book Derek ever read.”
Coming soon: a review of ‘The Iron Lady’.
I am reading ‘Kris Longknife: Furious’.
ITV’s one off drama ‘Doors Open’ was a pile of poo. BBC1’s two part drama ‘Restless’ was overwrought with bad acting and was plain silly. Episode one of BBC1‘s ‘Ripper Street’ was an overwrought borderline camp tale about Victorian snuff movies but all I could think of was how TPTB ripped off the look, soundtrack and even the opening credits of Guy Ritchie’s ‘Sherlock Holmes’ movies.
On ‘Hollyoaks’, Nancy and John Paul chat. He and she have seemingly forgotten that she hates him and sabotaged his relationship with Craig. Jacqui tries to shame the selfish Cindy and fails. The dumped baby is nicknamed Jesus by the McQueen’s and then John Paul reveals the baby is his and that he and Craig had a son via a surrogate and then Craig ran off. TPTB really make Craig out to be a jackass. Myra has had it with Mercedes. Tony has had it with Cindy and does not owe her kindness. Mercedes may not have a friend in the world but she is going to acquire another husband. Nobody explains how Dr Paul is back at work after being ‘cleared’ of a murder he actually committed. Nobody explains why Cindy and Holly look the same age despite being mother and daughter. John Paul cries and looks constipated, they brought him back for this?!?. Dr Paul plays a sick game with Myra. Nancy gets a slap for being a horrible person, Esther is unloved and Tony lays down the law to Cindy. The new opening credits debut: Doug is still there and Dr Paul, John Paul, Maxine and Sienna are added.
“I think I’ve got flea bites from those skanky McQueen’s!”
“Nothing like your sister whacking someone over the head to put things into perspective.”
“The next time you see me. Don’t talk to me.”
“You’re like a little rat, a germ infested little rat.”
“If you don’t like it Cindy, there’s the door.”
‘Pet Sematary’ Quotes:
“But am I ready to believe that a haunted patch of ground can influence airline ticketing? I don’t think so.”
“Something was moving on the other side of the deadfall.”
“He stinks of the ground you buried him in.”
“He could have sworn there was a path beyond, leading deeper into the woods.”
“The door must not be opened...Don’t go beyond, no matter how much you feel you need to, Doctor. The barrier was not made to be broken. Remember this: there is more power here than you know. It is old, and always restless.”
