Cleared out a 2002 tape. It began with an ‘Odyssey 5’ ep ‘Trouble With Harry’ in which a nice synthetic Harry (Ted Raimi) joins the gang, has group sex with Kurt and there is general incoherence and boredom. Then came another ‘Odyssey 5’ ep ‘Skin’ in which people stare. Chuck (Peter Weller doing his weird refusing to actually act thing) monologues and treats his sons as an inconvenience in his life. Angela’s father is shot, people mumble at each other, Chuck’s wife dies and there is swearing. Chuck walks off in a snit. This was not decisive.

Then came a ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’ ep ‘Minefield’ in which the ship hits a cloaked mine. Sato is injured and first contact is made with the Romulan Star Empire. A mine sticks to the hull and Reed heads out to defuse it. There is technobabble, a Romulan ship shows up, Archer is a twit and Mayweather steers the ship with a joystick. Reed is injured, Archer is a moron, T’Pol knows who the Romulans are and the tracking was off. Archer and Reed bond. Sadly this was soggy and cold.

Best Lines:
“I’ve never heard of a minefield with just two mines.”

“How good a theory?”

“Romulan. It’s pronounced Romulan.”


“They’re rumoured to be an aggressive territorial species.”

Then came a season 7 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Lessons’ which opens with the murder of a young woman - but of course. The tracking was off. Buffy is a moron. Sunnydale High has been rebuilt. There is bad direction. Giles and Willow yap. Xander is successful which was forgotten later on. Buffy dresses in vile fashion. Dawn makes friends, who were never seen again. Mobile phones are used. Spike emotes with his shirt open. I feel distain. A final scene is all fan-pleasing but means nothing.

Best Lines:
“He might not know all those fancy martial arts skills they inevitably pick up.”

“Stake is not the power.”

“Double-O Xander.”

“Creepy, strange, from beyond?”

“Right back to the beginning.”

“Stay away from hyena people.”

“The last two principles were eaten. Who’d even apply for that job?”
