Argh!!!

I was going to wait and review the last three Enterprise episodes all at once but then this week's impressed me greatly so here I am. The Reptiles kidnapping Hoshi last week was very cool. I know I've said this on numerous occasions but I really like how they are giving her stuff to do this season. This week's special effects rocked and it isn't even the season finale. I loved seeing the ships being torn apart by the anomalies. Ah, the Insectoids realize the truth. Of course the Guardians tipped their hand before they did but still a good thing nonetheless. A bit of trivia before I move on: though the episode was very DS9, it was directed by Robert Duncan McNeill...

The local ABC affiliate did it again for the second year in a row. They interrupted the season finale of Alias. Vaughn has Lauren strung up and was threatening to kill her then the weather guy comes on and says a tornado will hit Lady Vader's town any minute. I admit I was momentarily concerned. Thi…

More Cow Bell!

Smallville's season finale was fabulous!!! I can't believe Chloe's dead. (Well, the Witness Protection house blew up a second after she entered...) The writers were showing some talent with that twist but especially with the Kara angle. They knew viewers like myself would immediately think "Supergirl" when she appeared and then they took that away from us by revealing the truth: She was just a pawn in Jor-El's game. I knew something was up when she was acting rather "incestuous" around Clark. Jonathan may also be dead. he didn't look one bit well at the end of the episode. (Neither did Lex but you know he won't die.) I echo Deuce's comment: Clark is a bonehead for letting Lana go but you know she'll be back for Chloe's and possibly Jonathan's funerals.

The WB are a bunch of assholes. They cancel Angel because "the reruns didn't play well" and then have the gall to thank the show for five great years and say how …

I Hate Dial-Up!

Hmm where do I begin? I did go to the Sox game Tuesday. The only game of that series they actually won. Pedro certainly pitched better than he did yesterday.

Smallville last week was so good, I really don't have much to say. Pete's gone and Lionel was arrested. I'm hearing death row... Because of Pete's leaving Clark was reluctant to tell Lana the truth but he will lose her if he doesn't...

Anybody who really thought Angel had been corrupted by power isn't a regular watcher of the show but the episode totally rocked nonetheless.

The season finale of Charmed was fairly intriguing but several comments must be made. Why did no one comment that Sigmund was gone? Why is evil synonymous with '80's punk? To get Leo angry enough, I suppose the death of adult Chris was necessary even though it means nothing when you think about it. The way the doors closed on Leo, complete with goofy smile, suggests he's gone from the show as well but he clearly burned b…

Up and Down Day

Finished my internship today. I found it sad in a way. For the most part, I really enjoyed it. True, I wasn't paid and had to get up ridiculously early but I really learned a lot.

Guess who's not graduating on Sunday? Me. My cumulative GPA is 2.926 which is below the required 3.0. Somehow I feared this would happen. At the moment, it doesn't mean I never will graduate. The faculty has to meet to decide my fate. There is a possibility that I may have to just take a tenth course. I'll keep you posted on that.

How'd this happen? Well, besides the fact that I'm just stupid, my mind was distracted by too many things this semester what with my car accident, the crap that followed it and falling in love I'm sure didn't help...

Because of this, I'm not sure I want to go see the Sox tonight. If they were guaranteed a win it'd be an easy decision but...I'm leaning towards going.

Well Done

I am now done in every sense of the word. I gave my presentation today and passed in the Telecommunications assignment.

Apparently, my mother asked me if she could take my spring jacket and I thought she was just referring to my winter jacket. The problem? My cell phone and T Pass were in the pocket. Now, I have to walk down to Kenmore tomorrow morning to get to work because they don't make change at the Fenway stop.

Bought a ticket for tomorrow night's Red Sox game. My seats sound pretty good and Pedro is pitching. (Jury is till out if that's a good thing or not.) So I'll be down in Kenmore more than once. (Unless it rains like it's suppose to and the game is called, damn it.)

Charmed was pretty good last night. Can I stab Phoebe? Why are they trying to make her the hero of the season? Why am I upset by this? (No, really. Why do I care?) Not a Piper-lite episode. (Yay!) Gideon has gone from simply misguided to pure evil. WTF? Is there more to this story or…

Happy Mother's Day

Last night's Enterprise was very good. It was interesting that they finally made a decision in the Trip/T'Pol/Archer thing. Or did they? Now that they know T'Pol and Trip got married in a possible future, or past I guess it was, will Archer try to change this or will the other two themselves? Time travel brings out questions like this and if the other Enterprise just didn't make it or ceased to exist. They never will know. Here's a question that has nothing to do with time travel: why did T'Pol look so decrepidly old? She would have been only like 170 or so. Yes, Sarek look that old at 203 but he was dying of Bendi Syndrome and we're talking thirty more years in that case anyway. Are they implying that T'Pol's trellium addiction may have affected her that badly as to shorten her life by eighty years or so or did they just go overboard with the makeup?

Cold Turkey Has Got Me On The Run

This afternoon, I went to see Van Helsing. I liked it. One of the major problems it had was sacrificing story for fabulous special effects ala Episode II but, in my opinion, it wasn't quite on that level of badness in that respect. Yes, there were many cheesy lines but that is sadly what SciFi is now and maybe always was. The acting was really good except for the obvious exceptions of all four vampires: Dracula and his Brides. They were hideously over the top and could have easily been toned down. One review I read criticized that Anna was mortal yet could perform some fabulous moves. I think this power boost is understandable considering her ancestor made a pact with God to kill Dracula . Maybe God gave them a little extra help...

There several people, but one couple sitting next to me in particular, who were very amused by the cheese. I thought the guy would hyperventilate several times. What is wrong with you if you feel compelled to shell out $7.50 for a movie you don…

Get Out The Fork.

I finished my database this afternoon. There are some flaws beyond my control but it's still infinitely better than anything I've done in the class all semester so that's something.

Smallville was fairly good last night. It was almost like Clark had to face a fellow Kryptonian but doesn't encroach on any continuity issues. Nice. I was especially interested in that fact Jor-El used Jonathan's body to heal Clark. I can't wait to find out what's going on with the two of them. I love the Native American analogy to Clark and Lex's future relationship. An interesting touch. I do have a question though: when Holdsclaw set fire to the truck with heat vision, any idiot could tell he was going to do it and Clark had time to stop it. Now, I know doing so would enforce the professor's belief Clark is the deity Naman and it was just a truck but still...

Angel was infinitely better than last week. Angel and Spike are hilarious together. The only thin…

Another Quick Update

I'm in the computer lab. I just took a test in my Telecommunications class. I definitely did better on this test then the last one but then I didn't read an e-mail this morning from a woman just wanting to be friends. The question is though, did I do well enough to pass this class? Basing an entire grade on three tests is very lame indeed but it was somewhat refreshing not to have to write a paper.

Charmed was rather lame and had Aaron Spelling written all over it. Paige conjures a guy because she's horny. Oh yes, she feels put upon, which she should given the current status of her sisters, but that's no excuse to misuse magic. When will the younger sisters especially ever learn? More Piper than last week but we need more! Leo and Chris seem top be making a little progress in healing their relationship. Breaking your son out of jail does that I'd imagine.

Alias was so awesome last night! Vaughn told Jack he didn't handle is problems with violence but to…

Update

I see a light at the end of the tunnel as far as the project's concerned hopefully I'm not just being optimistic. I definitely should skip my morning class tomorrow since doing work is more productive than listening to others do their presentations. I always feel bad about doing that though. That's probably the only way I can be considered "studious" however....

When I turned on the TV last night, they were showing the Red Sox game that had been rained out the night before. (Hail in Texas? WTF?) I was expecting Enterprise. So I went down to do work. At 9pm, I decided to take a break. Good thing I did to because that's when the game ended and Enterprise came on.

What did I think of it? I thought it was very good indeed. The main plot of Archer convincing Degra to join him against the other Xindi, particularly the Reptiles, was very well done. Degra and the Sloth guy were just skeptical enough without being overly obstinate. T'Pol's overly emo…

Time to Blog

I really can't afford to take any time off but I have much to catch you all up on.

Smallville rocked. It's hard to say who exactly is more of a threat to Clark: Lionel or Dr. Garner. I thought it was neat that it turns out Clark's first word was "Lara" which is of course his mother. You knew it was really Lillian who killed Julian but it's highly understandable that Lex would take the fall for it given Lionel's state of mind.

Angel was merely a space filler this week. There had to be an episode where the Illyria situation was more or less resolved but there's only so many ways to do it I think. The other storyline with the demon cult wanting some woman's baby was even less interesting but plays a major role in upcoming episodes. Obviously, Angel is just pretending to give in to the Senior Partners and act like a lawyer but the question is what does he hope to gain by it? Oh, did anybody notice Mercedes McNab was finally added to the ope…
