TV REVIEWS: Macross Zero: “The Stars Of The Surface” (Episode 2, 2003)

Republibot 3.0's picture

We begin with a clever recap of the previous episode, a montage with a voice over of the elder from the island village telling the story of the Water Humans meeting the Bird Humans for the first time, and the creation of Rooy Kanu, the first “modern” human. The Montage/Recap flows seamlessly in to the episode itself, and we see that the villagers are hiding in a cave listening fearfully to the story while Sara prays to the gods to protect them, Roy continues to fight the Anti-UN forces in the air over the island, reeking much havoc, and Shin runs to the lake to save Mao.

“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days,
and also afterward, when the sons of God came
in to the daughters of men, and they bore children
to them. Those were the mighty men who were
of old, men of renown.”
—Genesis

Republibot 3.0's picture

Last week, a Raptor carrying Roslin and Baltar escaped, making it’s way to the Rebel Base Ship. Gaeta ordered the CAP to shoot them down, but Hot Dog deliberately stalls once he finds out Roslin is on the bird. Narcho cuts in front of him (Nice flying there) to take the shot, but misses and whacks the Base Ship a good one. Roslin and Baltar make it to the base ship. Meanwhile, Tigh and Adama are captured by one of Gaeta’s goon squads while covering Roslin’s escape. Starbuck and Apollo are scooting around on their own below decks.

Selfrighteous Hippies: Helping the Rich Get Richer by Killing People In Africa (And Elsewhere)

Republibot 3.0's picture

I’m not ordinarily a ‘cause’ oriented kind of guy. It is my opinion that – at least in American life – mass-media-driven causes are basically institutionalized attempts to make a lot of money by playing off the gullibility and liberal white guilt of our fellow citizens. I’ve always been skeptical, but these kinds of things, even when they’re done with the best of intentions, always seem to go wrong. Remember all that grain that USA for Africa purchased for starving Ethiopians when we were teenagers?

TV Review: Lost: “The Little Prince” (Season 5, Episode 5)

Republibot 3.0's picture

It’s all about family, and to a lesser extent it’s about growth, but mostly, I think, it’s about family. As Miles O’Brian said on DS9 once, “You can choose your job and your friends, but your family - that’s in the stars.” And sometimes the stars are extremely pissy when you try to second-guess their decisions. But we’ll get to that in a bit.

This week’s action was divided between Team Ben and Team Locke. Team Hume is entirely absent this week.
