Trailers, Quotes and a 2003 Tape Tale

‘The Returned’ trailer
This French zombie drama looks like ‘Babylon Fields’. The past is not dead. I’ll try it.

‘Jake 2.0’ promo
This retro promo reminds me of what a great show this was. Jake Foley went from nerd to secret agent via the ultimate human upgrade.

So what will ‘Avengers 2’ be like? Will the coldly professional Hawkeye and his cool collapsible recurve bow be in it? I hope so. I mean the stoic archer almost single almost brought down the helicarrier by himself. Will he and the equally cold and ruthless Black Widow hook up? Plus will it explain how all the Avengers got to Stark Tower to pose in front of Loki at the end of the movie and how Loki didn’t notice them?

On ‘Arrow’, Tommy died honourably with his moral compass still intact. Take note Oliver.

Honey yogurt = nice.
Mint chocolate = yum.
Lime chocolate = nice.

‘The Avengers’ Quotes:
“The Cube is a doorway to the other end of space, right? Doors open from both sides.”

“What did it show you Agent Barton?”
“My next target.”

“You could smell crazy on him.”

“We need a plan of attack.”
“I have a plan. Attack.”

“There’s only one God, ma’am. And I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that.”

“This all seems horrible.”

‘Ugly Betty’ Quotes:
“Did she have friends?”
“Not really.”

‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!’ Quote:
We need to be ready for anything. Okay, I wasn’t ready for that.”

The Simpsons’ Quote:
“Let’s enjoy the granola bars that city fellow gave us in exchange for letting him go."

‘The Caretaker of Lorne Field’ Quotes:
“That contract is the most sacred piece of paper on the planet. Don’t you dare desecrate it!”

“Sheriff Ed Harrison believed in what I did.”
“Yeah, well, last I heard Ed’s sitting in a senior care home right now having his diapers changed a dozen times a day without a clue what planet he’s on, so excuse me if I don’t put much stock in what he has to think.”

On ‘Hollyoaks’, drooling idiot Ste is still whining about Brendan being the love of his life. Will’s frame up of Leanne falters as Leanne realises what a psycho he is. Sinead abandons her newborn baby and moves in with Ste less than 24 hours after the birth. WTF is going on in Chester?

Cleared out a tape from 2003. It began with the 100th episode of ‘Charmed’ which was naturally called ‘Charmed Centennial’. The tracking was way off. Cole angsts and spell casts. Paige winds up in an alternate reality. Piper is a nutter in black leather and Phoebe is a slut with big hair and a dress out of ‘Dynasty’. Cole screams about how Phoebe won’t love him. Phoebe is a selfish trash monster. Cole is vanquished (but not really as the comics showed us). This annoyed.

Then came a season 3 ‘Cleopatra 2525’ ep ‘In Your Boots’ as Creegan (who wears clown makeup) and Hel (who wears a bad wig and booty shorts) switch bodies. Cue people running around and stuff blowing up. In retrospect this show was really stupid.

Then came a season 4 ‘Angel’ ep ‘Inside Out’ in which Angel and co finally realise that Cordelia is evil. Cordelia swans around in an ugly maternity dress. Connor protects her as he has the intellectual comprehension of a rock with concussion. Wesley moans about Lilah’s death. Who cares? Skip the demon returns and he is evil and a bad actor. Connor and Cordelia kill a girl. Skip reveals that everything that happened in the last few years was planned. Cordelia gives birth to Jasmine (Gina Torres aka Hel from ‘Cleopatra 2525’.) This was silly and where did Gwen go?

Best Lines:
“We woke it up.”

“Or what? You’ll bleed on me some more?”

“The monkey’s thinking again.”

Then finally there was another ‘Cleopatra 2525’ ep ‘The Soldier Who Fell From Grace’ in which everything is very neon, slag clothes are worn and there is really bad dubbing. Where does all the light come from underground? Jerks try to take over the team. Cleopatra’s robot dog is in peril. Cleopatra whines and simpers. The tracking was off, this sucked and I just did not care.
