The Adventures of Tintin

We finally got around to watching this film today.

The plot is that young ace reporter Tintin buys an old ship model, in which is concealed one of three scrolls which give the coordinates to a treasure hidden by an old sea captain. A bad guy is trying to get his hands on all three scrolls, and has Tintin kidnapped, believing he has the scroll on him, but he does not--it had earlier been lifted by a pickpocket, who turns out to be a compulsive wallet-stealer. The wallet is later returned to Tintin by a pair of identical, inept police detectives.


Gotham: "All Happy Families Are Alike" (Season 1, Episode 22)

Uh... Okay.

Gotham's first season finale is pretty much the whole season in a microcosm--entertaining in brief moments that float atop a disjointed, frothy mess. The overall effect is more laughable than dramatic. And that's even before young Bruce discovers his dear old deceased Dad had a Batcave of his own. Seriously.


Why Grace Lee Whitney got fired from Star Trek

I'm not sure if I should tell this story or not. On the one hand, it's nobody's business. On the other hand, Grace Lee Whitney was a good person with a hard life, and this is a good illustration.

I never met Grace Lee Whitney, but I was friends with one of her old boyfriends from the '60s, and someone who worked on TOS. I'm not going to name my (living) source because they'd take flack and they're old and don't need this crap, so if you want to say I'm lying, that's cool. Anyway I was told why she got fired midway through the first season. There were basically two reasons.
