TV REVIEW: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: “A Disquiet Follows My Soul.” (Season 4, Episode 12)

Republibot 3.0's picture

If last week’s episode was all about the shock of dealing with the death of hope, this week was about the grieving process. There are stages to these things, and I suspect the show is deliberately following them. Next week, presumably, will be about anger. Then acceptance. Bargaining is probably in there somewhere, I’m not much of a twelve-stepper so I’m not sure about it.

TV REVIEW: LOST: "The Lie" (Season 5 episode 2)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Tonight's cavalcade of Lost-related whimsey continues with a super-secret bonus episode that I didn't even know was coming. (I've been distracted lately). What's better than a season premier of Lost? Getting an unexpected bonus episode immediately afterwards! Ka-Ching! If you want to read a review of the season premier, you can do that here http://www.republibot.com/content/tv-review-lost-because-you-left but I'm going to assume you've already done that and just move on here.

TV REVIEW: LOST: "Because You Left"

Republibot 3.0's picture

The amazing thing, for me, is that Lost always manages to hit the ground running. On the face of it, the show would seem to have a lot of strikes against it - massive cast and plot erosion, an incomprehensible storyline, deliberately fractured storytelling, a sprawling cast that changes at a whim, shrinking season episode orders, not to mention the fact that after four years, we still don't really know what the heck is going on.

INTERVIEW: Charlie Starr discusses his Fan Film "Sacrifices," and the Fan Film industry in general

Republibot 3.0's picture

Fan Films have become a huge cottage industry in the past few years. With hundreds produced in the US and abroad, the quality ranges from cinematic on down to embarrassing, and the writing runs the gamut from hokey-jokey to breathtaking. The rising tide of these, and the emergence of venues like “Youtube,” have produced a flood of amateur production that quickly evolved from illegal copyright-infringing pastiches to semi-officially tolerated large-budget productions cranking out series of episodes.
