Trailer, Quotes and a 1998 Tape Tale

Retro Promo: ‘Star Trek Deep Space Nine' 5x02 ‘The Ship’
A crashed Jem’Hadar warship is fought over by Sisko and co and some other Jem’adar. This was a good episode but the promo gives too much away.

Reviews of season 1 of ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’, season 2 of ‘Person of Interest’, ‘Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel’ and ‘Lovecraft’s Monsters’ coming soon.

Quality Street My Green Bar = delicious.

I like camomile tea, peppermint tea, spiced winter red tea and tung ting oolong tea.

‘Parasite’ Quotes:
“All scientists are mad scientists. It’s just a question of how long you can keep yourself from starting to look thoughtfully at the nearest thunderstorm.”

“My parents would be pissed if they came home and SymboGen had kicked the front door in, but I assumed they’d be even angrier if they came home and found me dead in the kitchen.”

“I became the first scientist hose subjects had even a rudimentary capacity for looking back.”

“Armed SymboGen security guards removing sick people from private property isn’t exactly an everyday occurrence, and yet it’s nowhere on the news.”

“Anyone left inside would find themselves depending on the vending machines and their own ability not to die from an unspeakable pathogen until someone came up with an extraction plan.”

‘2 Broke Girls’ Quote:
“Friendly little visit from our homeless guy.”

‘Awkward’ Quote:
“He didn’t judge that hooker with the burning bush."

Cleared out a tape from 1998. It began with a ’The Pretender’ ep ‘Under The Reds’ in which Jarod is pretending to be an EMT, Miss Parker smokes and Sidney broods over his comatose identical twin brother Jacob. The dubbing of young Sidney was ridiculous and this was dumb.

Best Line:
“Sidney’s missing when he’s here.”

Then came the movie ‘Turbulence’ in which loony killer Weaver (Ray Liotta, who else) is being transported on a 747 at Christmas. Only to escape, lock up the handful of passengers and chase the sole surviving flight attendant (Lauren Holly) around the plane. A rabid cop (Hector Elizondo) growls on the ground and an instructor pilot (Ben Cross) has to tell her how to land the plane. This was trash as guns are fired with no resulting explosive decompression, people yell down huge mobile phones, Weaver goes OTT and the plane flies into a storm and inverts. This was silly with bad SFX and yet it got TWO sequels.

Best Lines:
“Who is actually flying the aircraft?”

“I’m calm. Now what?”

“Just one problem.”
“I think it’s a Ford.”

Finally there was another ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘Keys’ in which Jarod and Miss Parker are trapped by a hurricane in Florida. Miss Parker’s awful father shows up to shout and she recalls how someone beat her mother up one Thanksgiving. A sick child is in peril, Jarod’s latest pretend goes awry and this was dumb.
