‘Mind Games’ promo
RIP Terry Pratchett - can’t believe he’s gone.
‘Ascension’ won’t go to series, damn.
The remade ‘She Ra’ figure for Angella is iffy.
Dough balls and garlic butter - good.
I am reading ‘Black Wings of Cthulhu 3’.
Who recalls Mikados and Mi Wadi?
There are such things as Pine Needle salt and vegetable chorizo.
“A talking pulp.”
“He’s just a bastard.”
“Turning up in Amsterdam with no money.”
‘The Irish Times’ Quotes:
“London is shedding itself of poor people.”
“Blokeish infantilised cooking.”
“Where food ambitions go to die.”
‘The Guardian’ Quotes:
“Women are not allowed to sit outside like that any more.”
‘Star Trek’ Quotes:
“Oiling my traps.”
“We’re not expendable.”
Then came another ‘Babylon 5’ ep ‘Interludes And Examinations’ in which the crew have whatever implements they want to exact revenge on the Shadows - they just don’t do anything. Morden lurks, Franklin is a drug addict and Londo’s virulent covetousness goes on. Londo thinks of his lost love Adira. The whiff of conspiracy is in the air. Sheridan yells and the Shadows kill Kosh. This was silly.
Then came a ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Ten Little Warlords’ in which Xena is in the body of Callisto. Xena encounters Ares who has lost his godhood/sword. Joxer lurks. There is too much yap and this was not the grimmest fare it could have been. There is bad 90s SFX.
Then finally there was an ‘X Files’ ep ‘Synchrony’ in which time travel is muttered about, there is murder and 90s fashion. There is secretiveness, a cyro-biologist and all the fuss is over a rapid freezing agent. There is bad acting so even a nicely ominous end scene can’t save this iffy ep.
“Science is a high stakes game.”
“Closed time loops.”
“A world without history. Without hope.”
