The SG-1 finds a chamber with nine Goa'uld bodies inside and Teal'c
identifies them as the rivals of the System Lords, Linvris. Daniel
finds a device and while reading it, he is infected by an alien
parasite. Back on the SGC, Daniel is delusional and Dr. Fraiser locks
him in a cell while the SG-1 is kept in quarantine for observation.
When Jack, Sam and Teal'c visit Daniel in the cell, his parasite leaves
his body and infects Teal'c. Further, Daniel overhears Ma'chello's
voice telling that the parasite was intended to kill Goa'uld. Will
Daniel convince his friends that he is not mad?
"Legacy" is a good episode of SG-1 with well-written story and screenplay. The plot is also well resolved with the skilled Sam finding a means to save the SG-1 and Dr. Fraiser. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Stargate SG-1: Legacy"
In South Dakota, the survivors arrives at a warehouse in a nuclear
plant and they are warned by a man called Wilbur Grady and his daughter
Amelia that the glowing zombies are radioactive and they should neither
have physical contact with them nor let their blood splatter on them.
Soon they learn that the reactor core will meltdown destroying
everything within five hundred kilometers radius. The group decides to
team-up with Wilbur and Amelia to fix the reactor, but Wilbur fails and
subsequently dies. Now their only chance is to convince the engineer
Homer Stubbins, who became a hermit after the loss of his son, to help
them to fix the reactor. Will they succeed in their intent?
"Going Nuclear" is a funny and entertaining episode of "Z Nation". The glowing radioactive zombies are hilarious and the bond between Homer and 10K is a good moment of the show. The name Homer is probably a joke with Homer Simpson, who worked at a nuclear plant. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Going Nuclear"
In Utah, Mack and Addy expect to join the rest of the group and they
stop by a creek. Addy is tense and disturbed by her daydreams and Mack
tries to please her with their first date having dinner together using
a few supplies. However Addy sleeps and he decides to rest. But soon he
finds that he is trapped in a nightmare with a huge zombie.
The awful "Die Zombie Die... Again" is so far the worst episode of "Z Nation". The tedious story shows in the end that is nothing but a long nightmare of Addy. There is nothing much to say about this terrible show. Better off skip it! My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Die Zombie Die... Again"
Sam is promoted to major and during Jack's speech, a beam transports
him to a spacecraft where he meets Thor. He explains to Jack that the
earthlings have called the attention of the Goa'uld System Lords after
defeating Hathor and now they intent to attack Earth. However Asgard
had proposed to include Earth in the Protected Planets Treaty and three
Goa'uld System Lords will come to Earth to negotiate. In principle,
they may accept the deal provide the two Stargates are returned to
them. Thor also advises that Jack must be the negotiator of the planet.
When the trio arrives, they prove to be intolerable beings and almost
impossible to deal with. Teal'c and Cronos have a friction and out of
the blue, they are found unconscious. When Teal'c awakes, he tells that
he has not fought with the lord. Who might have attacked them? Will
Jack succeed in his negotiation?
"Fair Game" introduces three Goa'uld System Lords (Cronus, Yu the Great and Nirrti) and the return of Asgard Thor. The plot is funny and Jack acting as the representative of the human race is hilarious. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Fair Game"
While the walkers eat Nicholas, Glenn sneaks below his dead body and
hides under a container. Glenn stays there until the walkers leave the
area, and then he seeks water to drink. Enid throws a bottle of water
to him from the roof of a building and flees, but Glenn chases her.
Then they walk together back to Alexandria that is under siege of a
herd of walkers. Meanwhile inside the compound, Maggie waits for Glenn
while Rick gives training of how to handle a gun to Ron. He also gives
a pistol with the magazine without bullets to him. Then he has a
conversation with Morgan about his behavior without killing the
invaders. Rick tries to support the wall with additional braces and
Tobin helps him. Spencer tries to reach the car outside the wall and
Rick and Tara save him. Carol follows Morgan and asks who is trapped in
the cell while part of the wall collapses.
"Heads Up" is another great episode of "The Walking Dead". Glenn has survived the attack of walkers and is alive as expected. The rescue of Spencer is breathless and a great moment of the show. Carol and Morgan and Ron and Carl provide moments of tension in the story. The conclusion with part of the wall collapsing is the climax of the plot and probably will not conclude on the next episode since it is a usual procedure of AMC. My guess is that Glenn will drive the car to attract the walkers and save his friends since he is outside the wall. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Heads Up"
The survivors have not eaten or drunk water for three days and they are
dehydrated and weak to proceed. When they see the huge herd of zombies
coming on their direction, they use their last effort to reach a
morgue. However they are trapped inside and the only way to protect
themselves is hiding inside the cold chambers. Meanwhile Citizen Z
discovers a Russian pod from the International Space Station and soon
he befriends the Russian astronaut Yuri. When he sees that his dog has
not moved since the arrival of Yuri, he suspects that the astronaut has
poisoned the dog. Murphy leaves the morgue that is crowded of zombies
and finds a mother and her daughter hidden in a building. He steals
their water and supplies and let their husband and father that has
turned into zombie to get inside the building. Will Murphy abandon his
group in the morgue? Who is Yuri and what did he do with the dog?
"Zunami" shows Citizen Z completely deranged alone in the base with his dog. Murphy continues his transformation and now he is inhuman, killing a family of survivors. Surprisingly he decides to help his group but the last hope of mankind is changing very fast. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Zunami"
The survivors cross the border of Kansas and have a problem with the
truck. Warren is emotionally detached missing Garnett and Mack and Addy
seek for help riding a motorcycle. However 10K fixes the truck and they
drive through a different route. They arrive in the Fu-Bar where Doc
finds an old friend that tells that there will be a gun show where the
prize is a fantastic weapon. Warren goes to the Fu-Bar in crisis and
drinks lots of booze. Murphy tries to steal a car and bites the owner.
Meanwhile Citizen Z broadcasts advising that a Zunami is coming to
"Welcome to the Fu-Bar" is an episode with good moments; however, Warren's crisis is annoying. Murphy is still a selfish character and he is becoming dangerous. Mack surprises with his attitude and what will be his fate with Addy now that they have split from the rest of the group. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Welcome to the Fu-Bar"
In Caracas, Nelly (Catherine Deneuve) is engaged of Vittorio (Luigi
Vannucchi). However, after the engagement party with his family, she
calls off the commitment and flees from him lodging in a hotel.
Vittorio pursues her but the middle-aged French guest Martin (Yves
Montand) helps Nelly. She seeks out her former employer Alex Fox (Tony
Roberts), who owns a night-club and owes one-year salary to her, but he
does not help her. Nelly steals a valuable painting from his office and
heads back to the hotel, hiding in Martin's room. He gets a ticket to
Paris for her and leaves her at the airport. Then he sails on his boat
to an island where he lives alone. When Martin arrives, he finds Nelly
waiting for him in his house. She explains that customs did not allow
her to leave Venezuela with the painting. Soon his peaceful life of
hermit becomes Hell on Earth, but they fall in love with each other.
However Vittorio and Alex are still chasing her.
"Le sauvage" is a silly but funny romantic comedy. Catherine Deneuve is gorgeous and her devilish character is totally amoral. There is no reason why men fall for her but her beauty. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "O Selvagem" ("The Savage")
In Province town, the survivors have difficulties to find supplies and
are starving. Garnett decides to stop at a compound kept by his friend
Major Williams. He welcomes the survivors and explains that the only
condition is to leave their weapons at the front cabin since the place
is absolutely safe, actually a self-sustained Utopian sanctuary. They
accept the condition and are admitted in the place. At the same time,
three persons that joined the Church of the fanatic and insane Jacob
are re-admitted in the compound. While the group is eating, Warren and
Garnett have sex in a private room. Out of the blue, the three
readmitted persons commit suicide in strategic places and turn into
zombies, biting the others and multiplying the number of the zombies.
Without protection, the residents turn into zombies but the survivors
succeed to escape with the help of 10K and Cassandra. However they are
captured by Jacob that offers two options: to join his flock or turn
into zombies. What will happen to them? .
"Resurrection Z" is the best episode of "Z Nation" so far. Just like in "The Walking Dead", the great problem for the survivors is the humans and not the zombies. The self-sustained sanctuary is totally destroyed by the insane Jacob and his cult. My question is: Was worthwhile the sacrifice of a human life for the selfish and weird Murphy? My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Resurrection Z"
In Illinois, the survivors are resting in a suburban house with
electrified fence. Warren and Garnet are very close and bonding to each
other while zombies are trapped in the fence. The weird Murphy finds
that his hair is falling out and he becomes bald. Out of the blue,
Citizen Z advises that they must seek shelter since a tornado with
storm is coming. They also see a herd of zombies coming to the house.
Warren decides to drive home since it is only two miles far and has
shelter in the basement. However she regrets that she left her husband
Antoine behind. They find a couple hidden in the house and the man is
severely wounded in the head. The woman tells that a fireman has sent
them to that house and Warren believes it was Antoine. She goes with
Garnet to the firehouse to search for supplies and to seek out Antoine,
but they find only zombies. Cassandra and 10 K seek for supplies and
they are surprised by the storm. Doc tries to relief the pressure in
the man's brain with a drill. When Warren and Garnet returns, she
decides to stay outside the basement waiting for Antoine. Who will
survive in the group?
"Home Sweet Zombie" is a reasonable episode with a weird story but terrible and illogical conclusion. The tornado throwing the zombies is very funny. Addy has flashbacks that are not explained. The connection of Murphy with the zombie shows that he may not be the solution for mankind since he is a hybrid between human and zombies. Warren's attitude is totally unreasonable since she is a survivor. Why did she decide to stay outside the shelter during the storm is stupid. Further, has Antoine accidentally protected her since wearing fireman's mask it would not be possible to bite her or was only a nightmare? My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Home Sweet Zombie"
