Wednesday night TV (Enterprise, West Wing, Smallville and Angel
was another pretty solid episode. We learned quite a bit about what
the expanse is doing/being used for (in the last 2 minutes of the
show). The weird alien, it was apparent to me, was a Sulabon (like
a Cinnabon, but flakier), yet no one on the ship seemed to make
that comparison. As an additional nit-pick-bitch, what special material
was used in the fabrication of the bed that was lacking in the rest
of the ship? I love Shadowcat (Kitty Pryde of the X-men) as much
as the next card-carrying X-fan/comic-nerd, but I felt bad for the
idea of phasing after this episode... Anyway, it was still 'pretty'
good. Trip and T'Pol get some action and then, as is standard TV
protocol, they have the "this never happened" speech.
The sperm-covered/Lowenski-esque (well what kind of camo pattern
does it look like to the rest of you?) MACO's ($199.99 paint-jobs
done in a day... does that cover starships too?) are highlighted
again and Reed does his standard bit of Rent-a-Cop vs the Real Deal
(where he proves he is the Rent-a-Cop)... I know I enjoy this show,
I just enjoy the nit-picking more-so.
West Wing is continuing
the downward spiral of a show past it's prime too soon... Last nights
message came across as "Nukes are bad, mmmmkay; unless you're
our friend... then they're O.K. *wink-wink*"
/mourn the original creative team still
Smallville - "2
Bland, 2 Curious" should have been the title of this one. I
think it was Obi who ear-marked this one in last weeks discussion
as being a too-late attempt to catch some of the "2 Fast, 2
Furious" fans/attention. Lana is fully back to being Lana.
Simpering about and pouting over her inability to display any spine
at all around non-gun0-toting aggressors. Kryptonite makes super-nitrous...
shouldn't it also make super-bombs, super-soda, super-rocket-fuel,
super-complection-cream, super-INSERT-ITEM (you get my drift). That
resurrects of course Ye Olde bitch about "WHY IS THIS SHIT
STILL JUST LYING ABOUT FOR ANYONE TO USE IN ANYTHING?!?" Appy
would have initially been happy to see Pete, but then ultimately
saddened because Pete is just a tool. This episode was all about
the cliche wrapping all of the LifeTime network shows and every
After-school-special ever made.
It was sad... and I fell asleep before I watched the teaser for
Angel was deemed
not worthy of being watched by my sub-concious mind (and my concious
mind last week after seeing the teaser for "Nazi Spike vs.
WWII Angel"). Maybe it could have been well done, but I think
anyway to get there from here is gonna be lame and the flash-back
just can't cut it as an excuse... Let me know if I was wrong on
this judgement because I did tape it...
