Cleared out a tape from 2000. It began with a ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ ep ‘Darkness Visible’ in which the duo are shirtless in the Carpathians as they look up old pal Vlad. Iolaus becomes a vampire. This was murkier looking than usual but was not knowing or amusing. Herc and his heroic entablature ruinously overshadows everything. This had no purpose.

Best Line:
“Don’t think.”

Then came an ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Them Bones, Them Bones’. Xena is knocked up with the show killing baby. Alti lurks doing more mercurial plotting. The show was worn thin and ragged at this point. Then came a season 4 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Where The Wild Things Are’. Riley and Buffy shag and shag. This ep was surplus to society’s requirements. Spike lurks. The sheer effrontery of TPTB to foist this on us.

Then came a season 1 ‘Angel’ ep ‘Five By Five’. Faith arrives in LA whilst Angel has flashbacks to Darla and their amorality. Wesley lurks and Lilah wears too much blusher. A bad wig is worn. There is pre-emptive disapproval of Faith. This was boring.

Best Line:
“Are we playing a game?”

Then there was a ‘Nash Bridges’ ep ‘Line of Sight’ in which people run around in a perilous strategy. This was undersung.

Finally there was an ‘X Files’ ep ‘The Amazing Maleeni’ which was ‘The Prestige’ before ‘The Prestige’. This was an ep of thwarted aspiration.

Best Lines:
“He sucks. Why?”

“He still sucks.”

“Pickpocketing.”
“That was performance art.”

“A bad Mexican car accident. In Mexico.”
