Subject: What Did You Watch? 2018-03-07 (Wednesday)
MODERN FAMILY: Mitch gets a new job with a company that is going
bankrupt under criminal investigation. Unrealistically, they pretend
that such a job doesn't pay well. Phil and Alex switch roles, briefly,
and battle the next door work neighbor. Jay and Gloria have a sexual
taboo episode involving spanking...which is really just so not some
weird kinky sex thing that this part of the episode felt like it fell
out of the 1950s.
THE MAGICIANS: Margo and Eliot are sentenced to death, but on the good
side they get to choose the method. Julia and Fen play with a fairy and
try to teach it magic so that it can gain its freedom. Penny and Alice
and Kady get stuck in a happy sucking pocket world with Josh...and the
demon running it hints that he was told to do it by 'him'...which I'm
guessing is a half goat God. In the process of all of this, the 5th key
(E) is found and everyone can talk to each other across space and
dimension. This was a musical episode, sort of, and all the music aside
from the last song sucked.
CORPORATE: After a long hard week at work, the various employees get
sucked into a situation where they have to see their bosses on the
weekend, too. A lame western style restaurant that serves milk (I've
been to a much better one) and male prostitutes and birds and a
grandfather clock make for a mediocre episode.
REVOLT: A 2017 sci-fi film starring Lee Pace (HALT AND CATCH FIRE) and
Berenice Marlohe (SKYFALL) as a US soldier and a French doctor who get
caught up in an alien invasion while on assignments in Africa. To make
matters worse, Lee Pace's character is suffering from amnesia. While
you would think that a worldwide alien invasion is the biggest problem
they would have, in this film's reality, the biggest problem is that the
humans are busy killing each other off as fast as they can with
mini-conflicts between the battles with aliens. This film plays like
one of those Syfy action films. People who enjoy low budget cheesy
action will probably love this...and it wasn't totally intolerable for
normal folks, either.
