Review – Caprica – Things We Lock Away

Monday, October 25th, 2010

A massacre in a massacre in a massacre

This week:
Hostage. Euthanasia. Cleaning. Manipulation. Battle for mind and heart.

Pluses:
Vergis telling Greystone he didn’t have the stones.
Vergis winning.

Minuses:
No Adama family development.
Lucy’s arc (yawn).
Pretty much the whole episode.

I was quite excited when this ep opened, as it seemed like we were going to do a New Cap City centric ep. We did, but it wasn’t the storyline I was hoping for – I don’t know what I wanted, but two 45kg girls trying to fight and then deciding to braid each other’s hair sure as frak wasn’t it.

Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep (Fringe) was a much better attempt at understanding what is it that makes someone ‘human.’ The whole hallucinating avatar was frustrating and the battle scene annoying on multiple levels. There were some moments throughout the duration of the ep when I thought YES – but nothing happened. I should check who wrote it – cause it was unstructured, out of character and lacking in depth. One twitterer in my stream asked me if Avatar Zoe had created her own Avatar Zoe. Yes, the writing was that messy.

Incase you missed it – there is a new BSG spinoff. I get what they were trying to achieve, but think they failed miserably – are they trying to get cancelled? With eps like TWLB, the writing isn’t just on the wall for Caprica, the grave is being dug.

I am not a Gleek, and I certainly don’t get this.

Have you seen the new GQ?

Wrong on so many levels.

Why are the girls wearing undies, posing provocatively, yet the young guy is clothed?

Double standards?

I am not one to stand on the Objectification of Young Women, or the over sexualising of youth, but in this case, I am standing up and saying “Not cool Glee – but then you stopped being cool after about 4 episodes.”

The Last Cheer!

This week:
People I don’t care about fight about people and things I don’t care about and try to save people and things I don’t care about.

Pluses:
I don’t have to watch it again.

Minuses:
I waited 4 episodes.

Chase – The New TV Show by Jerry Bruckheimer

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Oh look! She is running towards or from something!

Blondie aka Boots is a kick arse 90 pound Texas Marshall.
She catches people who are bad.
She has a backstory in which her Daddy was bad.
Her team, which aside from her partner are minorities, are only good for backup work.

Pluses:
I will get back to you

Minuses:
Formulaic
Predictable
Trite
Action sequences are crap
Too much Texas stuff

If you want a show about Texas – try Walker Texas Ranger or Friday Night Lights.
