Space Janitors (2012)
Space Janitors Rocks! I had been following The Guild on Geek and Sundry on Youtube, and when it finished up episodes of Space Janitors started airing, and I am hooked! The show has so many laugh out loud moments, and just general pop-reference fun. I get an adrenaline rush every time I see a new episode is out. The whole Rebel leader father scene in Season One, and the recent cat dance in the cockpit in Season 2 were some of the awesome moments created in the show. Just the ability to write "cat dance in the cockpit", and know that there will be readers who know what I mean, highlights the fun of this show! Also I am now following the show Satisfaction, as I saw that actor Pat Thornton was on the show, I also saw Brendan Halloran in a scene with Tommy Chong as well. I guess everyone is busy commenting on Youtube and that is why this IMDb site is not getting a lot traction. So here is my "Thank-you!" to Space Janitors for creating such a fantastic show! Kind of an extention of Mel Brooks parody in Space Balls, which I just noticed recently watching an episode of the British sci-fi classic Blakes 7, I think Mel Brooks was referencing the spaceship in Blakes 7 when he designed the Winnebego spaceship in Spaceballs, I had never seen Blakes 7 so never noticed the reference.
bold new twist to the show
Fantastic episode, I am really loving this show, it has become a must watch for me. I have noticed the last few episodes the psychiatrists roles have been put on the backburner, there was just a few quick flash scenes of them in this episode. Can you imagine the catch up required for his next sessions with them. I wonder how they would try to explain away the most recent cross over of knowledge. Of course Dr. Lee's character would again suggest that it was another connection to try to block the move to Oregon, which in turn is an attempt by Michael to maintain the two realities and further keep from accepting his son's death, but really how could this new knowledge be explained, just some sort of guess. That's a bit of a reach. They have not played up this aspect much in recent episodes as they did with the quoting of the Constitution of the United States scene, where they were testing the phenomenon. I would be interested in seeing more of that type of testing, although I accept that looking too closely could unravel the premise unless it was done very carefully. A great episode, this show is really hooking me in deeper and deeper.
Pretty good out of the gates
Watched the pilot, my first thought, hey its the Green Mile. Very quickly they establish the two time lines, 1960's Alcatraz, and present day San Franciso, and then the characters start being portrayed, hmm cop duo, now it's feeling like Haven a bit. Loving Hugo as the academic/comic book store owner. Hey I am a sci-fi buff, so an entire series revolving around some sort of time-travel quirk, is awesome for me. The initial scene with the first inmate shown waking up was done quite believable, but seemingly he had some sort of foreknowledge of what was going on, yet his reactions to the new skyline of SF was excellent. One thing that bugged me was a scene in the new and improved, underground in the woods Alcatraz. All the uber-security, and they allow him to keep a belt on. And the second addition, again throwing him in his new cell, in the clothes they brought him in on. I know its a bit nit-picky, but those details kind of spoiled the moment of being immersed in those scenes. Also the room with all the headshots of the inmates and guards just screamed of creating the format for each weeks episode. They should have just gone ahead and done a close up on the shots, and included the corresponding episode numbers for us. On that note, again loved Hugo and his comment, "isn't anyone elses head exploding at this point". I definitely enjoyed the show so far, it was really well paced, and the sci-fi elements were portrayed well. I like the way the first inmate immediately became the bad guy, due to the cold blooded killing, but then Sam Neils character also then takes on the sinister nature, with his woods-a-traz setup. So that sets up an intriguing situation for Hugo and cop-partner. Now if there is any twist regarding their characters things will get really interesting. Already there is the weird, thought my Dad was a guard, turns out he was an inmate, so obviously that was arranged as part of the cover-up, so I am really wondering the backstory there.
good flick, interesting depth, very well portrayed
I had never heard of this movie, but found out about it while searching through IMDb. Other user reviews made me worry it might be a flop, but I figured Adrian Brodie could not have made another mistake like Predators, so I gave it a try. Wrecked was very cool, very well paced (not boring or slow as other reviewers have labelled it), reminded me more of Frozen than it did 127 hours. I flagged my review spoiler alert as a default as of course this movie has such a major plot reveal in the movie, no one should read too much about it before actually seeing it. Especially crazy was the twist with the female character, that was a very cool payoff, even the ending did not leave too much hanging, because you could very easily fill in the blanks. I have myself been lost in the woods, I went for a day hike and it ended up being overnight (that was the last time I ever have gone hiking alone), the thought of being in that situation, but in Wrecked's case where initially was he thought the consequences of a rescue might entail, the line where he said, come get me I don't care, was very cool. Also the dog character really gets you thinking. Also where did that jerky and pills come from, very strange, although I guess it could have been throw off from the crash. (Ok there was the spoilers). But having been out the woods alone, things like having that pack of paper matches, becomes so profound, so I found that interesting to see in this movie. I am from Lower Mainland myself and at first thought because there is so much filming in Vancouver, that was why the drivers licences looked like BC licences, but then the radio broadcast mentioned Abbotsford, so the writer/director actually choose that for the setting. Just did a web search (tried to put a web link here but it was not allowed, flagged as too long a word), and learnt that the film was shot near Parksville on Vancouver Island. So anyways very good flick, has quite a bit of depth due to the identity issues, coupled with the scenario of being trapped, isolated, and having to face death. Definitely worth the watch.
