QUANTUM LEAP #2.17: "Leaping In Without a Net"

You know why I'm so quick to defend mediocre actors and actresses in shows like, say, Arrow? Because of performances like the ones seen in this episode of Quantum Leap.

Now let's be clear about something: Quantum Leap's a great show, based on what I've seen and remember (this is an episode I hadn't seen) and based on its undisputed place in the science fiction pantheon. Scott Bakula is fantastic in this role, and Sam Beckett's camaraderie with Dean Stockwell's Al is the stuff of legends. But it's a show that depends very strongly on their guest stars, and when they whiff on those...well, you know the saying: "Oh boy."

"Leaping in Without a Net" finds Sam leaping into Victor, the eldest son of a family of Hungarian trapeze artists. They've fallen on hard times after the matriarch died attempting a dangerous trapeze stunt, and daughter Eva is obsessed with recreating it -- much to the chagrin of her father Lazlo, who blames Victor for his mother's death (he was supposed to catch her that night).

Right off the bat you'll notice that nobody in this family is likable. Eva comes off as a gloryhound with absolutely no concern for anyone else's feelings, while Lazlo is overly possessive, prideful, and quick to guilt those who have wronged him. You have to figure that Sam's mission is to somehow talk down Eva and convince Lazlo to forgive him so they can all be a family again. But that wouldn't be very cinematic, so instead, Sam must catch Eva when she attempts "The Triple." (On the anniversary of her mother's death, no less!) See, in the original timeline, Eva dies after Lazlo fails to catch her (due to the torn rotator cuff he's been hiding). But if Sam catches her, that'll reunite the family under Eva's unhealthy obsession with glory. That'll totally work out in the long run!

In all fairness, it could have worked. If I believed that if all this family had was the rush they get from pushing themselves to the limit and impressing the crowds in the process, I would've been in it with them. But when I should have been thinking, "Wow, I hope Eva can make it and become the kind of acrobat she's always wanted to be," I was thinking, "I could get blackout drunk if I drank for every time Eva says 'THE TREEPLE,' 'PAHPAH,' 'MAHMA,' and 'VEECTOR.'"

But I can't call it a complete failure, at least. As expected, Al helping Sam get over his fear of heights gave the two buddies good material to play, and the scenes with the fortune teller -- noticing Al's presence, as well as how often Sam had been "reincarnated" -- was fascinating given what I know about the mythology's spiritual ties. But all in all, this is not an episode I'd like to revisit again. It's a hell of a thing when you actively root for the protagonist to fail.

Here are my live-reactions in case anybody wants them; it has at least one other insight that I didn't have room for here.

Deadpool, uno mas.

My name is Oliver Queen...


Ho-okay, here it goes.

She-Ra: Princess of Power Season 1 Episode 10

Like a lot of cartoons, She-Ra has a very expository opening, which means I got to know the gist of this show without cheating! This is a spinoff of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Adora, He-Man's twin sister, is the civilian identity of the titular character. When Adora holds up her sword and says, "For the honor of Grayskull!" she turns into She-Ra and gets a vaguely defined power set. Also, her regular horse turns into a kickin' flying horse. She-Ra regularly battles against a Horde of evil monsters who rule her world. Only a few of Adora's friends know her secret, including whatever the gently caress this thing is.



So anyway, at the start of the episode Adora and her friends are at ceremony for a town She-Ra and the other rebels recently freed. That flying ear owl thing and another of Adora's friends--a suitably surprise sex-stached meathead I'll refer to as Captain MRA for the purposes of this review--get bored and wander off. They come across a well that appears to be empty, and Captain MRA drops a rock down the well to check for water. Turns out the well was previously being used as a fuel tank by the Horde, and dropping the rock down allegedly causes an explosion and fire comes hosing out (I don't know just go with it). Thus we have out first action beat, and She-Ra uses her flying horse to whisk the fire away.



After Adora and owl thing cuss out Captain MRA a little for dropping that explosion causing rock, a dragon pops out of the well, terrorizing the town. Captain MRA decides Adora needs a man to save her and drags her into some random hut. But it turns out it's a cowardly dragon. After some buffoonery where the dragon accidentally knocks the hut into the air and back down, Adora and MRA come out and eventually befriend the dragon. They decide to take the dragon to a sorceress friend of theirs, Casta Spella (DOH HO HO), to see if she can give him a courage spell of some sort. Sadly, said spell seems to do nothing for the dragon.



As this is all happening, the Horde starts using some vaguely dick-shaped vehicles to chop down a nearby forest. Adora's friends find out and head out to stop the horde, while she sneaks off and turns into She-Ra again. She-Ra does not gently caress around, and subsequently drops a boulder on a fleet of the dick vehicles.



Magically sensing that the episode needs to wrap up soon, She-Ra gives the dragon a "magic" flower lei that will give him the courage to stand up to the leaders of the Horde. After the dragon threatens the Horde with fire and tells them to gently caress off back to Hordesville, She-Ra tells the dragon (tell me if you've heard this one before!) the magic flowers weren't really magic and the dragon had courage all along. Then She-Ra tells Captain MRA that he's terrific and kisses him, and he faints and everyone laughs. Episode over, whoop de do.

A few random thoughts:

-As shoddily animated 80s cartoons go, I suppose this could've been worse. The show obviously has a nice theme of female empowerment, and if this ep is any indication every episode is a morality play. At least the kids who managed to sit through this in the 80s learned some nice values!

-Good lord, was there a lot of needless standing around and talking, though, at the expense of anything interesting happening. If you're going to do a superhero show where the superhero only shows up for like 4 minutes of the episode, you better have something else going on.

-The end of the episode established that every episode has this character hidden somewhere throughout, kind of a Where's Waldo thing. That was sort of cute.

If you want to watch this Scorcesean epic yourself, you can do so on Youtube. The entire series appears to be up.

UNCONTROLLABLE

Deadpool posted:

Zaggitz: Ghostbusters The Animated Series Season 1 Episode 8 (The one with the gorilla!)

God, where do we even start?

Judging by Deadpool's description I figured this would be an episode of that cool Ghostbusters cartoon that just happened to have a Gorilla in this specific ep. I immediately remembered as I started this episode that the actual cartoon I'm thinking of was called the REAL Ghostbusters, and now I know why. Holy loving poo poo this show. Following are images I've taken from the episode with my immediate note and then a more thorough explanation:




WHAT THE gently caress IS THIS

So right away I am bombarded with an assault of nonsense, its two dudes who live in a haunted house with a talking gorilla and a flying car who can also talk. The premise for this episode is that these Ghostbusters have become so famous that a Wax Museum wants to make statues of them(she is of course named Madame TouTou, and has a loving horrendous french accent.) So they have to go to Paris and visit the museum. Before they leave though they have to SUIT UP in one of the most insane, acid trippy sequences I have ever seen in a tv show.


Okay so first they go into this weird skeleton closet.


And then a big skull hand lifts it up into what I can only assume is hell?


AND THEN THEY ARE FORCIBLY UNDRESSED BY SPIDER LIGHTNING?!

I was seriously about to pass out from this overload of loving weirdness, but the show still had some surprises in store for me.

EVIL DOERS INCORPORATED

So the villain of this show is some kind of weird robot ghost who commands all the other ghosts do do his bidding I guess. His minions this episode are a weird, Nigel Thornberry looking effete ghost, and Elvira. There's also later 3 little balls of fur with briefcases who refer to themselves as EVIL DOERS INCORPORATED.

Mister BadMan RoboGhost is really salty about the fact that the Busters are getting wax statues and not him, so he tasks all these mooks with finding ways to destroy the Busters statues. It is at this point that Nigel Thornberry ghost COLLAPSES INTO HIS OWN HAT, AND FLIES AWAY.


Yeah, I wasn't joking.

The show reverts to typical cartoon fare after this. A bunch of cartoon logic methods of the various villains attempting to Melt/Possess/Blow up the Ghostbusters statues and having to deal with Madame TouTou's HORRENDOUS french accent. Eventually the little furballs from EVIL DOERS INCORPORATED threaten to eat the Eiffel Tower if madame TouTou doesn't destroy the statues. One of the ghostbusters somehow logics out that they will eat anything and tosses his ghost busting gun at them, which they eat and it somehow busts them?

And then the talking car says VIVA LES GHOSTBUSTAIRS.

Primeval update: what the gently caress

Regy Rusty
Apr 26, 2010



Grimey Drawer

Ok I just finished Scrubs Season 3 Episode 14 - "My Screw Up" but I can't write my review yet because now I have to watch the whole episode again.

Aye Doc
Jul 19, 2007

my name is john carter



Last Man Standing, season 2, episode 3: "HIGH EXPECTATIONS"

So I watched this episode once to get a general feel for it, planning on a second viewing to capture the finer details. The first viewing killed off all fond memories I had of Tim Allen in Home Improvement, and made me realize that the show has no "fine" details. Every character, every scene, welcomes their blandness with the warmest touch. There are a few moments where it breaks free of that and manages to be funny, but every single moment that rises above is a one-liner, and it quickly tumbles back to that mediocrity afterwards. I didn't read Occupation's review, but I did see that he gave it a positive review, so I was surprisingly hopeful about it; in light of this, the episode title was rather fitting.

Despite being the second season, the show starts off by clubbing me over the head with the stereotypes each character will be molded after for the episode: Tim Allen plays a hyperconservative dad, at odds with his eldest daughter who is excessively politically correct and very liberal. There's a new black family in town and the daughter stumbles over what to call them, winding up with "blaaa--frican-American;" Tim Allen complains about how he doesn't want to be friends with any neighbors; the daughter's car was egged, but oh no, so was the black family's! Racial tension is going to be the theme, but thankfully, the daughter gets pushed out after some bad Obama-based joke trading between her and daddy (surprisingly timely references, since this episode aired the week after the 2012 election) because the show at least respects itself enough to not do 22 minutes of family political feuding. Instead, focus shifts to the mother, whom I know best as "that lady from Becker." The mom was molded after the Sensitive Mediator that seems to exist in every sitcom - someone who is so desperate to not offend, not be in the way, not take a side, that she actually causes more problems than ever existed (note: no problems are actually solved). She comes up with a flimsy excuse to talk to the black neighbors, the Larabees, and in the entire conversation with the Larabee family, every sentence she says comes back to "well X and Y happened... but NOT BECAUSE YOU'RE BLACK!" without ever actually mentioning the race. The guest stars playing the Larabees actually did a great job here and gave me the first of few laughs, with this combo-stare towards Becker-lady:


It turns out that despite making the world's wirst first impression and coming off like a closet racist desperately trying to look above it, the Larabees accepted a dinner invitation! Tim Allen adheres to the sitcom standard of being a head of the household who loving Hates Neighbors. Dinner night itself starts off with a Michael Jackson joke (he had been dead for three years at the time), leading seamlessly into a brown bag + malt liquor joke... which is just the setup for when the Larabees show up with a brown paper bag shaped conspicuously like a 40. It turns out to be a candle and oh, the laughs are had. The Becker-lady is so eager to point out that equality exists in the world that she makes sure to correct that the two families have even-sized houses, and then tries to relate to the Larabees by providing a dictionary definition to the phrase "baby's daddy." Tim Allen calls the Larabee's child "lazy," the Larabee mother makes a joke about how their kid can't swim, and Becker-lady does everything she can to neutralize both of these statements to avoid the appearance of racism. It all comes together in perfect harmony when the Larabee father makes the same joke that Tim Allen did in the intro: "I don't think the KKK does much work with eggs!" See, it's all happy in the world of Last Man Standing and the white folks are getting along with the black folks. The scene even ends on a friendly, but terribly uninteresting and lame trading of racial jokes between the two, featuring "white people shoot black dudes" and an actual usage of the term "crackers." It felt insulting throughout, but at least the show avoided the most obvious route of making Tim Allen the awkward, awful part of the dinner and instead assigning that role to Becker-lady.

The secondary plot focuses on the other two children of the family - some girl who thinks she is the best at everything and is incredibly confident, and Eve, the most beloved child of the family. You'll notice that is the first time I have mentioned any of these characters' first names. It isn't because Eve was such a brilliant character that I identified with and clung to, but because they say "Eve" probably thirty times in a 22 minute episode. The confident daughter spends the entire episode fighting for her parents' attention while Eve gets it all, despite not wanting it. These conflicts are weaved in the idea of Eve quitting soccer, which her father is incredibly opposed to for reasons that never become too apparent. The sections dealing with these younger daughters are more interesting than the Larabee story, but I still don't think it rises to anything decent. Eve skips soccer practice to get wasted on Tequila, whines about how much it blows to have your dad be confident about your ability at something, while Confident Daughter silently bemoans the fact that nobody cares about her success in choir and in being super pretty and whatever else. Despite this big disparity, Confident Daughter still loves Eve and comes to her aid to try to keep their parents from finding out she was drinking. Predictably, since no character who does wrong in a sitcom has ever gone without learning a moral lesson at episode's end, Eve gets caught and the blame for her inebriation falls squarely on Confident Daughter's shoulders, leading to Tim Allen yelling at and chastizing her for taking her sister drinking. Worry not, even dad is not immune to The Great Sitcom Comeuppance, as he apologizes to Confident Daughter for blaming her. All is well in the family, and things are neatly wrapped up so that the same conflicts can begin anew in different manifestations in episode four and beyond.

I started this review off wanting to get some images to display my thoughts, wanting to be descriptive and informative about everything I saw and thought. These hopes were killed by the second viewing, which did nothing but make the holes deeper and do its best to flatten out the few moments that went above ground-level. I think what really drained some of the positive thoughts out of this was how stiff and stilted some of the deliveries were. I don't expect much from Tim Allen, but he can't even deliver the line "did you bring me... a big, pretzel?" without throwing in two random pauses, or how the Becker-lady lets "Everyone in the world named Mike... except, for... you" slowly drool out of her mouth. The primary plus I will give the show is this - I came in expecting to hate Tim Allen's character the most, and I did not. They did not find a way to write the most nuanced, appealing ultra-man conservative ever; they just found a way to make Becker-lady loving unbearable.

If you would be so kind as to give me another episode of a steaming pile to watch, that would be just swell Deadpool.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Season 14 Episode 21: Title: Kitty Orriginal Airdate (according to wikipedia): 4/30
As this is a backdoor pilot, any name bolding will be of cast members from the CSI Cyber Crimes Division
Recap:
After a woman is murdered, the police arrest her husband with a gun in his front seat. At the same time Special Agent Avery Ryan sees him and notes that if he's there, then her mark is there.


Pictured: Patricia Arquette, who plays Avery Ryan

After Ryan shows off her living lie detector skills, and her partner Clikk(spelling according to google) humiliates a member of CSI, it turns out her mark is not the husband, but instead his mistress Kitty, or, rather, the man who created her, as it turns out that Kitty is actually a computer program. She does grab at her jaw while she speaks, which is odd for a computer program.


Do not adjust your set.

It turns out that the reason she does this is that Kitty is based on a real person, Sarah.

In the end, Ryan uses Sarah to provoke the creep, and the FBI and LVPD team up and arrest him. Yay team.

Review:
So I started out disliking Ryan because she was portrayed as better than the entire cast of the flagship show, but as time went on that was toned down, and I warmed up to her. (Clikk can gently caress right off, though, if that's actually how his name is spelled).

The mystery was alright, I predicted that the guy was going to kill the blackmailer a scene and a half before it was revealed, but I didn't expect the Mistress to be fake... or real, afterwards. I liked Ryan describing the internet as an iceberg.

Beyond that, I liked Ted Danson in the episode, and the old guy was pretty cool too. The rest of the cast didn't stand out too much either way.

Pictured: The best part of the episode.
With its successful introduction of the main character of its spinoff, and a sufficiently interesting adventure, I give CSI, Season 14 Episode 21 a solid B+.

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.


Oh, forgot to say, that was fun. Can I get another?

Hello, I am here for this interesting thing.

My current watch list consists only of Elementary and Game of Thrones. Shows I have previously watched and gotten really into include Glee (), Young Justice, Torchwood (though I have never watched Doctor Who), and Criminal Minds.

I don't know if we're allowed to blacklist certain shows or if this is just me asking for trouble but please don't make me watch Hannibal. From the very few parts of that show I've seen, that is WAAAAAAAAAAAY too macabre for me. I just don't have the stomach for that.

My urges are becoming...

UNCONTROLLABLE

I would enjoy another as well.

edit: I'm already planning on watching The Americans on my own time, so none of that please.
