Law & Order: SVU -"I Deserve Some Love Too" - Team SVU go after an evil
federal immigration agent. This episode set me off a bit at the end.
Half of the episode was spent trying to get some SVU patented reluctant
witnesses to testify. Of course they agreed to testify. But when they
dramatically walked into court, the defense attorney had *no* idea who
they were because the DA never put them on the witness list. And that
was just completely glossed over as normal.
Party of Five - "Speak for Yourself" - The family uses the restaurant
for a fundraiser while Beto (AKA new Bailey) tries to get in good with
his girlfriend's father. That father couldn't be more of a jerk if he
tried. He's actually seems to be expecting Beto to do his job for him
in raising his daughter and is upset when Beto isn't acting like the
Star Trek: Picard - "Absolute Candor" - Team Picard visit a planet of
Romulan refugees to pick up another regular cast member. I liked this
one. And I like how all of the members of Rio's crew are holograms of
himself. We met 2 last week and I *think* another new one this week.
Unless that was the Navigator we saw last week and this week manning the
weapons in battle.
Sonic the Hedgehog (theatrical) - I am really not familiar with the
game, at all, so I went into this movie mostly open minded. I didn't
really like the trailers, but the reviews seemed to be good, I figured
maybe it would surprise me. It didn't. It was pretty mediocre. The
plot, what there is of it, mostly consists of an ugly blue CGI monster,
I mean hedgehog, running away and getting into trouble while Jim Carrey
mugs for the camera and chases after him. This was kind of like "ALF"
the movie. I was particularly annoyed that throughout the movie there
were *multiple* references to a "mushroom" planet, which I took to mean
a reference to the Mario Brothers game, and I was expecting a Mario
cameo or something along those lines. But no. There was no "Mario"
payoff to the constant "mushroom" references, which just added to my
annoyance. But for actual fans of the game, it might be amusing.
