Crop And Save
Heavy handed religious garbage
This episode beats you upside the head with ultra religious Bible bs. We get it, some people believe this crapola but it's just too ridiculous and childish to take seriously. Keep your superstitious Jesus freak garbage to yourself.
The most unlikable characters assembled in one place.
Not a single character in this episode is even remotely likeable. Even the cops are beyond stupid and pathetic. Who writes garbage like this?
Mutiny on the Bounty (1962)
I never understood the whole "Brando is the greatest actor the world as ever seen" bs that permeates reviews and consumed Hollywood. He's decent. Just decent. Trevor Howard was far superior. In fact, most of the other actors were far superior to Brando's wooden lack of all emotion. Visually beautiful. Waaaaay too long and anyone with an interest in the true story should avoid this movie at all costs.
Phantom from Space (1953)
Most annoying dog in any movie
Not a bad movie. Extremely cheap but interesting. I only with the phantom would have silenced that stupid mutt once and for all.
The Neptune Factor (1973)
Watch Voyage to the Bottom of he Sea instead.
Any episode of the aforementioned TV show is better than this cardboard poster of a movie. Even Walter Pigeon is wasted.
The Untouchables (1987)
Sorry fanboys, it's just not good.
Watch the TV version starring Robert stack. Every single episode of that show is better than this rambling boring mess. There is no suspense, no character development, and no story. Just... blech.
The Twilight Zone: A Game of Pool (1989)
Not even close to being as good as the original.
Esai morales is terrible. Every line he speaks comes out as a snear, a snarl, or a squint. His over acting spoils the mood and shows that his Jesse Cardiff has no humility or subtly. He's just angry. All the time. In the original, you rooted for Jack klugman. In the awful mess, I wanted nothing more than to watch morales lose, and lose big. He's an unlikable jerk. Much of the original dialog is missing, taking with it a lot of the depth and subtlety of the story, leaving just a thin shadow of the original that is barely watchable. Major disappointment.
Wow is this bad
The first segment is just plain stupid. The second is beyond irritating. It contains the worst acting you can imagine, and any "scifi" story that has actors mispronouncing "nuclear" as "nookyoolar" instantly loses all credibility. When this show was bad, it had no parallel.
The Twilight Zone: Kick the Can (1962)
Some people are just negative
Contrary to the pompous blowhard that rates this episode a 3, this is a decent episode that I rate a 10 just to offset his rating. Some people feel obligated to hand out low ratings because, in his mind, the rest of us are too stupid to be fair. Thank goodness we have such an unreproachable critic to correct us all.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
Not bad but stolen from Twilight Zone
The episode was A Passade For Trumpet. The only differencs is the kid. Too bad Shyamalan never gave credit where it was due: at Rod Serlings feet.
Night Gallery (1969)
Some episodes are fantastic. Most are dull, boring and go nowhere. Then there are those that so unbelievably stupid and obnoxious, it's hard to understand how they made it into this anthology in the first place. These are the "funny" episodes which were the hallmark of Jack laird's utter and complete incompetence. These steaming piles of dog excrement were so bad that they would not make the cut in a Junior High School talent show. The truly baffling part of all this is that this show had access to a huge amount of the most talented writers directors and actors available at the time.
WKRP in Cincinnati: Real Families (1980)
Dumbest idea yet.
Let's take a great ensemble comedy show and concentrate an entire episode on its most annoying character. Here's another awesome idea: let's have Johnny water ski jump over a shark tank! That would be awesome! Who writes this garbage?
If you like the original Twilight Zone avoid this episode at all cost. This is nothing more then a modern soap opera. Romantic drivel at his best. Absolute garbage
One of the most poorly written, directed and acted television episodes I have ever seen in my life. This piece of dog excrement makes any episode of The Love Boat seem like Shakespeare by comparison. Avoid at all costs.
Star Trek: The Galileo Seven (1967)
Good episode, despite Boma
Boma is a dick, and incredibly insubordinate. Spock should have left him behind on principle alone.
Columbo: Strange Bedfellows (1995)
Awful episode from the creator of Murder She Wrote
Bill of Rights? Who needs it! Miranda? Nah! Assault, coercion, threat of violence and murder, conspiracy, accessory before and after the fact of several counts of violent crime, Columbo's having a hell of a day! Too bad that none of the evidence gathered during the final scene would be admissible in any Court not to mention would probably cost Columbo his badge. This is an astonishly bad Columbo episode and if it were not for Rod Steiger it would be 100% flushable.
Space: 1999: All That Glisters (1976)
Season 2 continues it's rapid descent into the toilet
First of all, despite the fact that the alphans encounter a sentient rock-like creature, any comparison to any Star Trek episode is a huge stretch and an insult to Star Trek.
I thought that the Rules Of Luton was about as stupid as anything I've ever seen, but I stand corrected. This episode is beyond stupid. First we have a "cowboy" from "Texas" as a guest star. We know this because he wears a cowboy-like hat and childish cowboys boots and refers repeatedly to Texas, although he's about as Texan as Catherine Schell. He speaks with a British accent and uses British slang throughout yet is constantly referred to as "cowboy". Yech.
Our heroes spend the majority of the second act dodging colored lights and making gigantic leaps of logic with statement like "it wants water" and "it's changed his molecular structure" without the slightest evidence of how that conclusion was arrived at.
Then we have the over-use of the Metamorph. For some reason, the writes seemed to feel required to use Maya's abilities not matter how ridiculous, going so far this time as to have her change into a stone. Twice. The rock creature takes over humans to tote itself back to the eagle, and while so doing, comes upon Maya as a rock. Apparently, it fails to recognize a part of its own body, despite finding it alone in the middle of a field, and takes it back to the eagle.
Once there, it tries to merge itself with Maya (as a rock) who cannot stop the union but manages AS A ROCK to call out instructions to the others to defeat the mineral menace.
I could go on, but the only comment that bears repeating is a condemnation of Fred Freiberger's criminal lack of any talent whatsoever. May he rot in hell for what he did to this fine show.
Stick to season One. Ignore Season Two.
Hawaii Five-O: The Second Shot (1970)
Not improbable at all
In response to a previous reviewer, the initial assassin's shot was made using a high-powered rifle (30 caliber I reckon) with a scope from a distance of 50-60 meters. A reasonably experience child could have made that shot. This was the perfect device to gain the true target's confidence. I find nothing ridiculous or "wildly improbable" at all.
John Marley is always fun to watch, and Nicholas Georgiade from Untouchables makes a good guest appearance. However, the highlight of the episode's cast has to be Charlene Polite who guest starred in the Star Trek Original Series episode The Cloud Minders.
Series best and an example of what might have been.
This is my first review of any Lost in Space episode despite having seen them all several times, including during their first run in the 60's. The outstanding quality of this episode inspires me to comment.
The true pity of the entire series is the fact that they could produce some of the finest sci-fi ever seen on TV, equal to Star Trek or outer Limits for imaginations and writing, but they decided to become a childish farce, ruined constantly by the antics of Jonathan Harris. I can't count how many episodes would have been very good television had Mr. Harris not been a part of the show, or at least, put on a leash, but for some reason, he was allowed to run amok, destroying everything good and decent in his path.
Oddly, Jonathan Harris was immensely proud of the character he created, Dr. Smith, even though Dr. Smith was one of the most despicable, disgusting, and obnoxiously annoying characters ever developed, even more so than every villain. There is nothing "lovable" about him and he is not a pitiable person, as so many have claimed. He is a soulless monster who repeatedly trades the lives of his fellow humans, (including Will whom he claims to love), in his never ending lust for power and riches. He is the type of person that would have been killed by "friendly fire" in another reality.
Anyway, this episode showcases all that is good with the show and I for one, feel a sense of loss at the potential that the show had if only they would have given it a chance.
Columbo: Murder in Malibu (1990)
Not one of the best, but decent
The entire cast, with the exception of Columbo and Brenda Vaccaro's Jess are very unlikable. Not only that but the main antagonist is played by Andrew Stevens, who's claim to "fame" is late night cable soft-core porn with Shannon Tweed. He is just awful. The main female cast member, aside from Ms. Vaccaro, is Janet Margolin, who's acting is so bad that only Woody Allen bothered to cast her in anything. Brenda Vaccaro is a shining light in this amateurish mess.
All in all a decent story with the usual Columbo and worth watching if you can get past the pain of Margolin and Andrews.
In a Lonely Place (1950)
Bogart is fantastic
I am unsure why this film is receiving such high marks as a film noir. For me, this has to be one of the most boring noirs I have ever seen, and as a noir buff, I've seen dozens and dozens of films noir. The entire movie takes place in the first 10 minutes and the last 10 minutes. The remaining middle of the movie can be excised without affecting the outcome at all. This movie doesn't seem to know what it wants to be: mystery, drama, crime story, or comedy. The music is childish and cartoonish and often intrusive.
The only aspect of this movie that makes it worth watching is Bogie's slow 'crash and burn' as Dix Steele, who realizes how shallow his relationships with others are, even the woman he loves, played by the unbelievably wooden and amateurish Gloria Grahame.
She is supposed to be a woman living in fear that she might have gotten involved with a murderer but there is no love in her, or fear, or happiness, or any other emotion for that matter. I find myself not caring one iota about her and wondering why Dix even bothered pursuing her in thee first place.
The rest of the cast is a mélange of interchangeable, immediately forgettable characters that add very little to the story. There are 2 cops on the case, but one would have been plenty. We have the obligatory drunk friend who adds nothing at all, except for the minuscule comedy relief, which is not welcome here, and the balance of the cast is just filler material. The only exception being Dix's agent Mel who is surprisingly realistic.
All in all, a very forgettable film. Too bad, because Bogart is awesome.
This show is supposed to be a comedy, and while the actors are certain that they are hysterically funny, there is nothing actually funny about this show at all.
There is this pause after every "funny" line while they wait for you to finish laughing, but I don't think any one IS laughing, unless it's to say "holy crap that was lame".
It's like watching a reality show about 3 incredibly boring people, none of has an actual personality.
To compare this show with any character from Seinfeld, The Dick Van Dyke show or the 3 Stooges is an insult to those respective shows.
This is written by unfunny people, acted by unfunny people and watched by who knows what type of troglodyte.
The Jim Gaffigan Show (2015)
Quite possibly the worst show I've ever seen
There is no comedy here.
It's like a live action version of the Baby Huey cartoons.
This guy is beyond awful.
The only possible explanation is that he's retarded and doesn't know how awful he is, and no one has the heart to tell him.
We've already seen plenty of shows with bad fathers, and it seems that Gaffigan is sleep-walking through this thing. He seems to eat as a vehicle instead of actually acting and being funny.
The supporting staff seem to recognize this and seem on the verge of vomiting at any moment, as do I.
