What is it they say? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. But what comes next? Fool me three times and…what? I need to know because, despite the obvious history, I’m going down THAT road again. It’s like that friend who always shows up late to the party despite the fact you told him you have to leave at a reasonable hour because you have to work the next day. The last time, he phoned ten hours late to tell you he wasn’t coming. This time, he initially put his E.T.A. at around 7:00 p.m., then said he meant 8:00, then revised that to 9:00, and now is saying 10:00…but you really know he means 11:00. I’m always one to offer the benefit of the doubt but, technically, he’s still maintaining he intends to make the very first party…that was thrown two weeks ago!
In other cryptic news – how does that other saying go? When one door closes a window is left partially open for you to attempt to squeeze through but, when you do, it closes a little further, trapping your ankle and, as you struggle to disengage yourself, you glance over and notice that the door isn’t closed after all but actually slightly ajar and if you don’t find your way over soon, that busybody neighbor is going to waltz over and close it for you, thereby locking you inside with your eccentric aunt’s pet chimpanzee, Nippy McFaceChew. Or something like that.
Continuing our Stargate: Atlantis re-watch with…Whispers!
Ouch. In retrospect, not one of my favorites despite the great time we had on set making it, and our wonderful guest stars. On the bright side, there were a few moments that made Akemi jump. Mission accomplished.
Ultimately, she didn’t have much to say about this episode. She’s NOT a fan of horror but IS a fan of Beckett: “Nice to see doctor. But very scary.”
She was quick to point out parallels between the mutant hybrids of this episode and flesh-eaters of The Walking Dead: “Like super aggressive zombies!”.
After 65+ episodes of the franchise, she is now able to recognize familiar locations: “The same forest as The Hunt. I liked that episode better.” Hmmm. Come to think of it, so did I.
Tonight, we move on to The Queen. It’ll be interesting to see how this one stands up to
our my critical re-watch.
