Babylon 5: S04E02: Whatever Happened to Mr. Garibaldi

Garibaldi has also been, missing. In this episode we see his ship seemingly ‘resting’ on top of a Shadow vessel abandoned. Most people believe that he died on patrol. His old pal G’Kar has vowed to find him and finds a piece of his ship. Unfortunately G’Kar is captured by Centauri Guards during his investigations.

Lorien and SheridanOn Z’ha’dum the old one, Lorien, keeps talking in riddles to Sheridan who doesn’t give a toss and simply wants to go home. You start to wonder, as you watch this old geezer, how he has lasted so long. Any normal person would have stabbed him by now. Is the reason he’s all alone because he has driven everyone else mad? Is he on Z’ha’dum because the other members of his race can’t stand the inane chatter and pointless riddles? Or am I impatient with the dude because I’m a Sad Geezer impatient for scenes of battleships, special effects and Lyta?

Delenn is missing Sheridan and still not eating properly. She comes up with this great plan to muster all the remaining Rangers and make one last attempt to destroy Z’ha’dum. Understandably, the Rangers are a little worried by this, they know that such a mission would fail. Delenn is quite insistent however. I’m glad I’m not a Ranger!

Lyta, Delenn and Ivanova head out to see if they can locate and bring back Sheridan.  They fail to see, hear or feel any trace of him.

Garibaldi, confined & confusedGaribaldi is in a dank, round, dark room. An invisible interrogator is questioning him. There seem to be a lot of questions about what he remembers. The significance of this unclear. Garibaldi is getting sick and tired of this also and starts smashing the place up. He is soon subdued with some sort of gas. Then we see a figure dressed in a Psi Corps uniform enter the room.  Just as we are about to find out The old bore Lorienwhatever happened to Mr Garibaldi, we cut back to that pratt, Lorien again.

Lorien tells Sheridan that he is dead. Sheridan, understandably, does not believe him although he can’t find his own pulse. Then a really weird conversation takes place where it seems that Lorien is trying to persuade Sheridan to accept death so that he may (with Loriens help) live again. Tell me, would you trust some old git who told you to do this? Sheridan does! and his last word before he slopes off is ‘Delenn‘.


Another great show, 31,011 out of 10.  What did you think?

The Witcher Episode 7 Review - Before a Fall

In this Witcher Episode we noticed that “Before a Fall” was certainly less trivial in its portrayal without Jaskier. Indeed, the start of the war between Cintra and Nilfgaard and sending a group of mages face an army (with their own fanatically devout religious mages willing to die for their cause) with the realisation and sense of destiny playing on Geralt to find and protect Ciri adds a level of story depth with a different entertainment value that the excellent big character development scenes. In this episode, the narrative was definitely more focused on the story.

Episode Review: Picard meets Dahj after she is attacked by Romulan assassins and something 'activates' within her and she gets an image of Picard in her mind. She seeks him out to see if he can help explain what is happening to her. Picard travels to the Daystrom Institute in Okinawa and meets with Dr. Agnes Jurati, who reveals Dahj may be Data's daughter through an experimental procedure known as fractal neuronic cloning – meaning she is an android with an organic body but a positronic brain. She goes on to say that this activity results in twins.

The Witcher S01E06 Episode Review - Rare Species

This Witcher Episode Review is about as close to a typical Geralt of Rivia story as you can get - that is, a monster and a dilemma. It also lets us see one of the classic fantasy genre monsters of all time - dragons!  There was much less gratuitous in this episode which was a shame, but it was certainly good fun to watch.  The graphics were really good.  Ok, not as good as the amazing dragons in Game of Thrones, but definitely better than the Kikimora from the first episode. Though to be honest, I thought the Kikimora graphics were pretty good too.

The meeting between Geralt and Yennefer really delivers! Their get together bubbled with raw energy, sexual charisma, and fun that kept is all entertained. Cavill and Chalotra looked really good together and look physically and mentally well matched, That wasn't just good acting, it was good writing and direction too.
