T+14 days since the blackout event (really??????)
A bus drives into an idyllic lake to a cheery tune… we're introduced to the oddest Flash Forward yet: A man flashes that he's an African-American in leather pants.

Yeah. Weird. More after the jump, the usual spoiler caveats apply...

Republibot 3.0's picture

Our stint as the only American Webiste covering Defying Gravity continues! We’re doing this (A) because we like the show, and (B) as a service to fans who’ve been jerked around by a lack of network support and scheduling, and don’t feel like waiting around for six months to see the final episodes. We’re also hoping to engender discussion and support for Canadian viewers who are looking for info and observations about the show. If you’ve found this review, and you know people who like the show, please do tell your friends!

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “Air, Part 3” (Season 1, Episode 3)

Republibot 3.0's picture

The third episode picks up right where the first one left off, and in fact kind of surprised me by being the final act of the premier. Even more to my surprise, it was much better than the premier as a whole, and the previous episode in specific.

PLAY BY PLAY

Around 1986, Lt. Scott is born, though of course he’s not a Lieutenant at the time.

Around 1994, or a bit prior, both of Scott’s parents die in a car accident. The boy is raised by a catholic priest. Scott, naturally, decides he wants to grow up to be a priest as well.

EPISODE REVIEW: Dollhouse: “Belle Chose” (Season 2, Episode 3)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Man oh man oh man oh man is this show doomed! You’ll recall that last season it had unbelievably crappy ratings, right? Good buzz, though, good reviews (of the second half of the season, anyway), and the DVDs sold well, so it was renewed. I’ve heard rumors that it holds the record of being the lowest-rated high-budget series ever to be picked up for a second year by Fox. I assume they figured that, you know, at least the ratings couldn’t get any worse.

EPISODE REVIEW: Ben 10: Alien Force: “Simple” (Season 3, Episode 5)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Easily the best Ben 10 episode of the season so far, even if it does have an annoyingly peacenik message and some muddled storytelling in the end.

PLAY BY PLAY

Ben has received a “Help me Obi Wan” hologram from a little alien girl, who tells him she’s heard of him, and he’s her hero. She’d like him to end the war on her planet if he can. Ben guilts Gwen and Kevin in to helping him, and they take Ship to the planet just in time to see a dotted line being erected to divide the hemispheres, one half of the globe to a faction.

EPISODE REVIEW: Iron Man: Armored Adventures: “Technovore” (Episode 19)

Republibot 3.0's picture

A slightly better-than-average episode that deviates from the established format somewhat, but still doesn’t manage to rid me of the ennui I’m feeling about this whole series.

EPISODE REVIEW: Defying Gravity: “déjà vu” (Episode 10)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Our brief and noteworthy run as the *only* American website that’s covering “Defying Gravity” continues, as we watch episodes that have aired in Canada, but which sit moldering on the shelves here in the ‘States because the network selfishly wants to run shows that are popular instead. At least for this one episode, they more-or-less made the right decision, since there’s little in this one to attract people. It’s kind of a place-holder episode that adds little to the ongoing story.

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate: Universe: “Air, Parts 1 and 2” (Season 1, Episodes 1 and 2)

Republibot 3.0's picture

We’re all slaves to what’s come before. If you have a new thought, a million people have had it before you, more than likely. Whatever language you speak, odds are it wasn’t your decision to speak that language, it was just dumb luck that you happened to be born in to the country that spoke that language. If you like Rock and not Opera, it probably has more to do with the socioeconomic conditions and time you were born in to, more than a conscious decision on your part. Everything we do is built upon a billion things we didn’t do that came before us.
