Space 1999 S1E18 – Ring Around the Moon

First scenes.  Hangover eye hijacks technician Ed, this weeks redshirt, burning out his brain turning him into a Cmdr Data level coding genius.  Planet Triton, intriguing rogue world that causes Ed to transmit classified stuff.

Way to screw up the eagle inventory.  How many of these do you have again?

Which way to the choir loft?  Think I have a solo.

Excellent display of Monkey Touch Typing while still attempting to be HOT with her Novocain face.

Funky 70’s dance music during the moon stroll.

Once again Koenig hand waves the “Anti-gravity shields”.  All of a sudden we are back to …they could just swat us.  Somebody got permission to overuse the strobe kit.

Waiting for the story to make a point we gave up on eating and drinking.

What if you could use the proliferative and survival properties of cancer-prone cells to rejuvenate cardiac progenitor cells and get them dividing again, without forming tumors? Researchers are exploring the results of taking an enzyme, Pim, known to be associated with growth and survival of certain types of cancer cells, and causing it to be overexpressed in cardiac progenitor cells in mice.

The chemical element lithium has been found for the first time in material ejected by a nova. Observations of Nova Centauri 2013 made using telescopes at ESO’s La Silla Observatory, and near Santiago in Chile, help to explain the mystery of why many young stars seem to have more of this chemical element than expected.

Once again travelling back to the late 60s to see what somebody thought 1980 would look like.  An E-alarm, how fascinating.  The Patriot Act before it was called that.  Colonel or Studio Film director Foster sent a message in the clear?  Ah, Espionage or Treason equals execute the hippie for being sloppy douche.  So Say We All.  You put handwritten crap into the machine and it authenticates handwriting before sending transmissions.  If you want a copy then it prints it out on another card in code that has to be read by a computer.  Courts martial, feel free to bait away.  $10K on the 10th.  Guess the Andersons figured we would all be using dollars by 1980.  I’m going to ask you just once more because I expect the answer to change {insanity}.  Col. Paul Foster fashion trend.  Shirts with shower curtain ring zipper.  “Security Proof…The Usual Arrangement.”  Hypnosis?  Manchurian Candidate?  Paul’s Apartment has some bugs…really?  Freedman has to take out the muscle for Straker.  Who saw that coming?  Head first through the soothing light display, Austin Powers monologue first of course.  4 flashing red lights mean…?  Oh-oh, security team hunting Paul in blue jumpsuits with gogo boots.  They mean business.  ‘Acoustic gun…I have heard of them.’  LOL  “Pig Headed Cretinous Lout, SIR!”

Better yet, watch the MST3K version also on You Tube.  Reb Brown gets the nickname that sticks with his career, such as it is.  “Ab-crunch Butt-stain”.  This is one giant piece of cheese and very stinky.  You must approach it from this angle to survive the film version of blatant plagiarism.  Starting with the total recycle of BSG 70’s version battlestar and vipers.  The big ship is called the Southern Sun, and the fighters are $%#@ vipers…being chased by old school cylons.  Costumes:  Reb Brown is perfectly comfortable in his sauna pants and wife-beater while all the backup dancer chics are running around in 80s style aerobics unitards with nothing to block crack creep.  There is a witch coven doing some interesting things for…some reason.  Reb Brown has gun firing car chases through the ship in a go-kart with a refrigerator carton on it blazing around at a dangerous 3 miles per decade.  Not an endorsement.

Question(s) of the week

Topic:  Cosplay.

What kind of characters do you think make the grade for cosplay and why?

What’s more important?  Comfort, delivery, true to canon, that people can identify your character…{add your own if not included}

Does society accept that folks will walk the streets to and fro in cosplay or should one assemble their uniform on site?

Cosplay that involves weapons or weapon props:  What should one expect to get away with in this day and age?

What statement does your cosplay choice make and who gets to judge?

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Mr. Leonard Nimoy, great actor, director. artist and humanitarian. He was best known for his portrayal as Commander Spock on Star Trek, television and film.  Many people were touched by Star Trek and the character Spock, some lives were changed, comforted and those who took up engineering and other science careers. Rest well, sir, you lived long and prospered and you will be missed.

Space 1999:  Alpha’s Child

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCmxbFESrDg

Somebody had a kid.  Must have been all the sexy mod clothing.

Oops, here comes the glowing green alien bullshit making the kid turn into an instant third grader.

Those comfy concrete wedge pillows that shut off your airway and make Twiggy look like Jabba the Hut.  I want to move there!

Okay, Novacaine-face says he’s a normal 5 year old…must be delayed.

8 minutes in ‘He’s a Deaf Mute’.  Branding is everything.

Everybody shut it, the deaf mute kid is getting a tour.

Green light on a green ship in a green fog.  Message?  Made of unknown composition.
Who knew?  Taking instructions from the deaf mute now.  “Ignorance is no reason to start shooting.”  I knew I’d find a gem.

Three more alien spaceships approaching Alpha.  Like any other day!!

Why do the alien engines always sound like something from the Wonka factory?

So, get this….the green alien ships fire green shit.  Yep.

Armor piercing lasers.  Now there’s a weapon that a moon base in peacetime should keep handy.

Dude is now an adult male in a costume ready to put the stones to Barbarella.  Julian Glover, or Kristakos from 007:  For Your Eyes Only.  Using his mental powers for coercion.  Of course.

Wow, transformed Mommy into his mate Rena.  How Oedipus?

Dressed like Rocky from Frankenfurter’s Castle.  The original family guy Stewy.  Jarak needs his ass kicked!!!!

If nothing else then for his shoes.  Just when you think all is lost, here comes a flying Klingon Dildo!!

Now we have a mother and baby again.  The End.

 

UFO:  S1E9  Ordeal

Ordeal, 60s groove party with the cool kids.  Lots of porn-stache, bowl cuts and medallions.

Furlough is synonymous with jolly rogering or good shagging.

Foster has a mauve colored future mobile.

Every year, 2 weeks of mini-boot in a SHADO spa center.

Assaulted by aliens in the sauna on day 1, off to a good start.

Totally rocking VTOL commuter jet.  Why didn’t we make that damn it?

Paul Foster is Highly Trained?  What was it, Episode 4?  Expendable.

UFO crashes on the moon.  That’s news.  Col. Foster dumped out in mid blast.

Oops, only in his sauna riddled brain.  Interesting….

Movie in Theater (Movie of the Week)

Jupiter ASS-ending

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1617661/

Use your money for better things…really.

B-Movie Blindness

Battlespace

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwkRG-x4zfE

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0937388/

Lots of lens flares, must be an early movie by JJ Abrams

Marra, ‘intolerably lonely woman’.  Lost all her friends and Squadron mates.  Lots of Daughter narrator data-dump.  She’s more lonely now and firing a cannon like on a WW II Battleship.

Planet Smasher tech.  Earth took the demo unit.  That made an impression.  THE CONSTRUCTS are the enema…enemy.

Usaal, a prophet?  Nah, he just wants to get laid by Marra.

Apparently Usaal was a traitor and bought it in the crash or one point landing.

Excessive radiation but I’m protected by my bandoleer of CO2 cartridges.

Oh wait, Usaal was just having a lie down.  He’s getting better.  Constructs made the next Evolution of Humans…Homo-Technus.  Marra is running around sporting her new more utilitarian sexy Barbarella in Black outfit.  Bio-Automation High Speed Mode.  Get the hell out of the open during a meteor shower mode.  Perhaps some explosives should have been used.

Well, let’s have a break and make out with Fabio.  Damn gamers.

How does someone sneak up on you in the friggin Sahara?

30 minutes in and we are still in full blown data dump.  And the reason we are not reading this?

How come his toy pistol works?  Damn it.  Out of water so throw the canteen away.

Usaal is now using 6 dreadnought vessels to chase down Marra for the Galactic Hump he dreams about.

Maybe you could store the gamer goggles until the war is over…just saying.

Three inter-rotational suns.  Why did we terraform this oven?

One thing Col Marra is not in this movie, a Dune freeman.

Ah, now she’s unconscious.  Just the way Usaal likes his women.

Oh, maybe not.  He left her to bake.  So sad.  Now the planet conveniently gave her an eggplant to eat right under her head.  Fancy that.

Some of the effects are fun, like when she’s swimming and a Dreadnought comes gliding over head.  Like a perfume commercial.

Oh-oh, gnarly alien water monster attacks.  I win.  Have to check my hair.

Was the sneeze scripted?

Drone soldier or Empire Storm Trooper.  Same marksmanship skills.

I missed something and now she is strapped to a V-2 rocket.  She looked kind of MasterRace like.

Undetected until I took a pot shot at a Construct tower spewing behavioral modification speeches.  Fucking impulses.  Lots of sound effects with nothing else does not a movie make.  Let’s steal an enemy spaceship and make a run for it.  In my will I leave you a Shuttle.  Thanks.

Mom was vaporized and the Planet-Smasher still ended things.  6000 years of stasis, Holy Fuck!  Why?  Ah,  Mars Liberation War…Now everything makes sense.

 

No it doesn’t!  Back to addiction and addiction suppression drugs, blah-blah-really?-blah.  Leather slut licks sword edge.  That does it for me.  Mother was betrayed by Daddy.

 

Now we have time travel.  You know what we need?  A Unicorn shitting rainbows…or skittles.  Because that would mean something.  Spaceship elevator with Musak.  6,900 years of virtual living and things are breaking down…like your tits.  Future warrior must have cape.  Captain Cape doesn’t have tolerance for Snark but he is sick of the narrator monologue.  Now we have dialogue.  Not improving.  1hr 13 min in.  Now we have Watchers and Protohumans within fifteen minutes of the end of the movie.  The writer is a terrorist.  A billion-billion years…that’s a lot.  Wait…will I get a paycheck?

Now we have a self-aware computer.  What other themes can we shove in here?  Iva has some serious collagen usage issues and the the computer is trying to be HAL.  In the end she took a dive into a dark matter cloud…she needed the money.

 

Credits:  (Budget=Results)

Security for Miss Kelly and international site managers?

Mr. Edgertons’s driver? It looks like the lion’s share of the blame for this affliction was on Mr. Blake Edgerton.  Okay then, I can’t pass this up.

Mr. Emmett Callinan, how does one get the posting of “Moustache Supervisor”?  I really want to know.

Why was a Hygenics person required?

Mother and daughter, Eve Connelly, played by same actress, didn’t see that coming.

Ah, now I get it Usaal played by Blake Edgerton trying to get Eve Connelly in the sack.  That part makes sense.

 

Music was good.  The rest was an abomination even to B-Movies.  I hate to rip into an Indie but…reread what I wrote.  Watch the thing, if you still have the time, and see if you honestly disagree.  Off to cleanse my brain palette.

Star Liner

By David Drake

Considering the number of titles this author has out I considered this to be a good chance or investment in reading a new author who I would not leave me stranded.  I’m going to keep this short.

The story line(s) are good, character development is good and the scenes were well done without hand waving too much on the science.  It is unfortunate that the editing and the quality of the end product were so heinous.  The text has “1” where there should be “I”s.  There are misspelled, misused and misplaced words throughout this work.

Normally I might cut slack to Indies and self-pubs on this somewhat but it looks like the author didn’t do a post production read here.  In the form I received this I will only give this book two out of five thumbs up.

Toxic Avenger (Snarking from Tromaville)

A B-Movie on purpose!!!

B-movies…the unavoidable by product of today’s society.

Mopping Melvin.

What’s that stink?  Late seventies, early eighties script-work.  Melvin pissed off Bozo.  Who knew?

Bozo…Ancestor of… duh-da-da…the Situation.

Melvin’s look of glee is shattered by a pink ribbon adorned switchblade then responsible sister baby sitter sends out kid brother on a bike after dark in New Jersey.  Yeah.

Snake in the gym clothes is the actual source of Aerobics Videos.  Never knew that.

Third time I’ve seen this film.  Realizing how much of a creeper-peeper Melvin was before his accidental change.

Excellent job strapping down the “TOXIC WASTE drums”.   Just in time for Melvin’s humiliation at the body parts of Julie.

Sheep shagging in a Tutu.  Somebody put in some overtime.

Melvin’s hiding in the bathroom from his mother as most boys do when experiencing…the change.

Thugs, in Jersey.  I might need subtitles to follow this.

Cigar Face is the only survivor.  Time to up your game Toxic.

“Knuckles and Nipples were hated by everyone.”  Now that is writing.

New Jersey robbers always announce themselves by name.  It’s a code thingy.

Gratuitous use of food violence with sub-standard ingredients.  Deep fried or oven baked thug with or without mop implant.

Dr. Snot-burger.  Toxic Chemical Vaste.

All is supervised by Mayor Christie.  A pillar of the community.  Tromaville.

Charles Chips and the A&P.  Proud sponsors of…movies we’re Thugs haven’t thought about saggy pants.

“You kill an it.” “I vant this thingk found unt I vant this thingk kilt!”

Science question.  How can search dogs distinguish any scents in New Jersey?  My limited experience includes Camden and Bayonne.  Oh yeah, the Turnpike too.

We’re going to have to shoot the whole town.  Will somebody please shoot the fucking Mayor already?  Melvin is thinking.  Ah…ends with feel good music just shy of a disco ball.
