What did you watch?
Recorded for later: Stargirl.
I think you misspelled \S/tupidgirl!
I watched both it and La Brea. SG1 was way stupider than La Brea.
Doctor Who ‘s crack in time continues to dump everybody Natalie Z has slept
with from the sky. We get to see the one-man rescue craft (I don’t think
they understand what rescue means) get dumped through and crash land with
the pilot who Natalie Z slept with at the cost of her daughter’s leg having
to bail out while the craft lands itself softly and upright even though it
only has one engine. I’m not sure if this goes to explain why the people
that fell through the crack weren’t killed or not.
They continue to say both 10,000 BC and 12,000 years ago. I’m not sure if
they’re trying to confuse or clarify.
One thing you can say about the show is that it moves right along. They
killed another survivor. The husband instantly got a psychic vision of the
pilot that Natalie Z slept with being united with Natalie Z whom the
husband has also slept with. I am not sure why exactly they instantly
believed him since he knew about the mission and recommended the guy for
the mission and that happens to be his wife and his best friend so he sort
of knew everything in advance.
The chief scientist of homeland security (snicker) decided that since the
rescue craft disappeared into the crack in time which they consider a
failure even though that’s what it was supposed to do she’ll take the day
off and spend it with her diverse lesbian girlfriend celebrating their
bi-racial romance. The diverse lesbian girlfriend also happens to have
built the only duplicate of the rescue craft in the world and has already
fixed it so it won’t crash like the first one even though this is like two
hours later. Of course the only one in the world who can fly it is Natalie
Z‘s husband who she has slept with but not in a while. Sending him through
the crack puts them one step closer to her having a complete collection.
A plucky group of castaways sets out to find the crashed rescue craft. As
they tread through the woods somebody points out the smoke has gone away so
they have no idea where the craft is now. Natalie Z says “all we have to do
is keep walking this way“
In the middle of the woods
Where they can’t see anything
I swear that line was meant to be funny but it turns out she was right.
They come across a big water hole with a giant snake in it and decide to
Ford it instead of walking 50 feet to the right and around it. Because
it’s only 3 feet deep. And has a 50 foot snake in it that grabs you and sex
you under. Yes I see what auto correct did there and I’m just gonna leave
They find the pilot who Natalie Z has slept with and his disabled craft but
before they can head back to camp his radar goes off. Natalie Z wonders
who can be sending the signal to his radar.
That’s the stupidest thing anybody on the show has said since the whole
carbon dating Natalie Z‘s wedding ring debacle last week.
They find a fort of the mushroom people.
And yes that wasn’t nearly as stupid as \S/tupidgirl SG 1.
For some reason stupidgirl spends this entire episode posing with her hands
on her hips.
So Nxy makes a nightmare monster. I don’t know why it’s a nightmare Monster
except Kara says it is. Kara calls in that it’s headed for “a nuclear power
plant“ which is smack right in the middle of national city because nuclear
power doesn’t have the oomph to go anywhere. Just ask President Santos.
Also this seems to mean that national city has more than one nuclear plant
which is sort of frightening in and of it’s self. You think you’d call it
by name so the rest of the super friends would know where you were.
Anyway so to stop it they put an impenetrable force bubble around the
monster and a huge section of the city keeping it from walking the last 20
feet to the nuclear plant. You’d think they’d have just put the force
bubble around the nuclear plant itself but no.
The nightmare monster instantly disappears. They decide that it must have
the ability to become invisible and intangible and completely undetectable
in all ways and not that it just teleported or maybe went home.
The massively incompetent Hispanic female governor of California tells them
to get rid of the force field knowing full well that that means the
nightmare monster will attack the nuclear plant and kill everybody for
miles around. For some reason the super friends feel obligated to obey her
and not tell her to just go fuck herself.
Saving the world is getting in the way of Kara’s stupid job at CatCo so she
finally quits leaving only her boss and the one other employee working
there and he’s imbedded with the super friends.
The force field comes down (although it didn’t seem like the super friends
did it). The super friends put up a portal for the nightmare monster to go
through but the incompetent Hispanic female governor of California orders
her attack helicopters (she has her own military?) to shoot at the thing
luring it the wrong way. They finally manage to push it through.
Adding to the big stupid they begin the episode by Nxy saying that Kara
destroyed the hope totem so she can never complete the allstone and her
evil plan to rule the universe but halfway into the episode she’s back to
trying to find the other totems and they’ve completely forgotten that she
said that won’t work anymore.
The shocking end is that Lex Luthor pops up and is now going to help Nxy.
The one saving grace of the episode is that plastic helmet dreadlocks girl
took annoying alien daughter to visit Jimmy Olson so neither appears at
I haven’t watched this since they fired the Enlongnated Man for having said
a word they didn’t like 20 years ago. I decided to take a look at the most
recent two episodes, the end of last season, to see if I wanted to watch
the final season when they actually finally get the costume right.
This wasn’t bad at all although they could’ve done it in one hour if they
just cut the moping scenes.
After a lot of lipservice as to why Iris wouldn’t be in the episode (yay!)
She just suddenly appears and says somebody figured out how she could
appear once in a while. And for some reason she now has a chubby costume. I
have no idea why, I thought she just sat back there watching the monitors.
I have no idea what the hell was going on but they brought in everybody
including John Wesley Ship as Jay Garrick and the speed force personified
as Barry‘s mother and Barry‘s grandkids from 2049 and even Edward Thawne in
the form of HG Wells and Cisco and they were all there at the end of the
episode so there’s a big old gang of them ready for next season. Everybody
but Wally which is fine with me. Oh and they’ve got two Frosts now which
Ian should like. And they might be dating. I told the majik DVR to record
all new HD episodes.
