EPISODE REVIEW: Terra Nova: “Instinct” (Episode 3)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Jim attempts to have sex with his wife, but keeps getting interrupted by noisy pterodactyls. It was funny when it happened to Fred Flintstone (The first cartoon character to have sex. Well, second. Well, really, I guess it was a team effort) and it’s funny now. Oh, no, wait, what’s the opposite of funny? Belabored? Yeah, go with that. The birds- sorry, Pterosaurs - turn out to be evil, and kill people.

Futurama is back, baby! Yeah! Returned from the dead a second time! Back and better than ever! Well, tawdrier than ever, anyway. That’s something, right? But who cares, it’s back! Back! Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Yeah!

I completely forgot about it.

News on Next Season's Genre Programming

sysadmin 2.0's picture

The networks just wrapped up their 'Upfronts'- where they trot out their programming and schedules and hope that advertisers will bite.  Maybe the shows will bite and the advertisers will trot out.  In any event, they happened and we all discovered anew what we had suspected for years: FOX hates Science Fiction.

EPISODE REVIEW: Dollhouse: "Epitaph One" (Season 1, Episode 13) [Season Finale]

Republibot 3.0's picture

Since most of us haven't seen "Epitaph One," the season 1 finale of Dollhouse, and effectively part 1 of the two part series finale, Vacantlook of B5.com has graciously allowed us to reprint his synopsis of "The Lost Episode."  This explains a lot about what was going on in Friday night's finale, explaining some of the more confusing points about how, exactly, the world got that bad, and who some of these new characters were

JUST A LITTLE HEADS UP FOR OUR REGULAR READERS: I Screwed Up, Bigtime

Republibot 3.0's picture

The big "Dollhouse" finale aired an hour earlier than it normally does, and really with no advance word. Owing to my own incredible stupidity, I ended up missing it as I was watching Ben 10 at the time.

I'm watching Caprica right now, which I'll have up tonight, and I'll do Dollhouse when it comes up on Hulu tomorrow. I'm really sorry for this. It's just sloppy.

JUST A LITTLE HEADS UP FOR OUR REGULAR READERS: Caprica vs. Dollhouse

Republibot 3.0's picture

Owing to deliberate (And stupid) counterprogramming by Syfy, the series finale of "Dollhouse" and the first real episode of "Caprica" are running at the same time on different networks. This isn't even remotely a tough call: I'm watching Dollhouse. It's a better show, and its grand farewell is big news. I'll have the review up here tonight, no problem.

EPISODE REVIEW: Dollhouse: “A Love Supreme” (Season 2, Episode 8)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Last week - by which I mean five minutes ago, before the last commercial break - you’ll recall that Echo and Paul returned to the Dollhouse as part of some larger scheme that wasn’t revealed. As it’s a cold night and my carpal tunnel is acting up, I’ll just jump right into it without my normal coy introductions.

PLAY BY PLAY

An ex-millionaire in a trailer home is talking to someone unseen about how he blew all his money on The Dollhouse. Alas, the unseen man turns out to be Alpha, who kills the man.

EPISODE REVIEW: Dollhouse: “Meet Jane Doe” (Season 2, Episode 7)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Last week, as you’ll recall, a whole heapin’ hell of a lot of stuff went down because Fox is burning off episodes of this show two at a time in the Friday Night Death Slot, in the midst of the Christmas Doldrums when everyone is on the road or vacation or shopping like crazy or driving around looking at the lights, or doing whatever the hell it is that people do this time of year, rather than watching TV. (My wife, for instance, is in the Christmas play at church rather than watching TV. I, for instance, am watching my wife in the Christmas play at church, rather than watching TV.
