EPISODE REVIEW: Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: “Nor Iron Bars A Cage” (Episode 17)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Wow! Remember a couple weeks ago when I only grudgingly agreed to continue reviewing this show, saying that I’d gotten bored with it, and my kids had aged out of it? I completely take all that back. After last week and this new one tonight, I’m completely on board again.

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “Malice” (Season 2, Episode 8)

Republibot 3.0's picture

A slight uptick on the ratings, about 100.000 more viewers last week than the week before, but only up 62,000 from Cloverdale, and down 148,000 from the season high (“Awakening,” episode 3). Let’s face it, kids, ratings are in the crapper for this show. The producers were hoping for “At least three seasons,” they’ll be lucky to get past two.

EPISODE REVIEW: Tower Prep: “The Rooks” (Episode 5)

Say, that was actually pretty good, wasn’t it? I admit I wasn’t terribly jazzed about tonight’s ep. “Oh boy, stupid frat boys doing stupid frat boy things…spooooooooky.” Big frackin’ deal. But it actually ended up probably being the best episode of the season.

EPISODE REVIEW: The Event :"For the Good of Our Country (Season 1, Episode 8)

Well, I'm watching it on the big TV this week-- probably because nobody wants to watch the Redskins-Eagles game. (And no, Jerry, Glen Frey wasn't playing….)

Here comes the big question- after this week's episode, will I be banished again?

EPISODE REVIEW: Generator Rex: “Plague” (Episode 18)

Republibot 3.0's picture

A plague has put the entire world to sleep in less than 10 hours. The only people aware are evos, White Knight, Doc Holiday, and Rex. Holiday is keeping herself awake with electric shocks, Rex is running around putting out fires (Literally) and White Knight is complaining. If they don’t cure people relatively soon, people will start dying of thirst. Holiday eventually passes out.

EPISODE REVIEW: Sym-Bionic Titan: “Tashy 497” (Episode 9)

The evil general dude goes to the planet Mutrad to complain about how little bang he’s getting for his alien monster buck. The leader of the monster ship gives him the most horrifying creature on the planet, a cute little blue deal that looks a lot like Oswald the Octopus.

EPISODE REVIEW: Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: “The Forge of Creation” (Episode 16)

Ok, now *this* one I didn’t see coming. I know I’ve complained about how the show/franchise isn’t really grabbing me anymore, not through any fault of their own, but simply because my kids have aged out of it, and I’ve aged out of it vicariously through them (As openly pathetic as that is), but tonight was a pretty impressive game changer, and it went a long way towards renewing everyone’s interest in the show.

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “The Greater Good” (Season 2, Episode 7)

Republibot 3.0's picture

I’m a little concerned about the ratings on this show. The Season 1 (And series) high was 2.4 million (For “Air”) and the season 1 low was 1.17 million (“Incursion, Part 1”). In general, the ratings seemed to hover between 1.3 and 1.4 million viewers. Stargate Atlantis seems to have held around 1.6 million viewers on average per ep, just by comparison, so that’s respectable, if a bit disappointing.

EPISODE REVIEW: Tower Prep: “Buffer” (Episode 4)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Back in “The Prisoner” there was a hokey made-up, nonsensical game in The Village called “Kosho.” It was supposed to represent all the martial arts at once - karate, boxing, acrobatics, pugil-sticks, all that kind of stuff. It’s the kind of thing that probably sounded pretty cool, but in actual practice it was just two guys wearing a lot of padding hopping around between trampolines whacking at each other with sticks. It was pretty incomprehensible and random, and they quickly dropped it.

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Star Blazers: "Test Warp to Mars" (Season 1, Episode 4)

Welcome to episode four. At least I think its episode four. The DVD does not do a good job of breaking up the episodes, they did not space the DVD by episode, they just put episodes 1 thru 5 together and then broke it up into four chapters, see my confusion, four does not go into five very well.
