Taste for Beef
Best one of the season so far, and one of the best overall.
It has a good sense of humor about itself, and stars the legendary Christopher Reeve.
The story is about a couple owning a restaurant. They cook squid but their little business isn't doing too well.
Their landlord tells Ted (Christopher Reeve) that he is kicking them out. There is another guy in the picture, Gaston. Who decides to kill the landlord and cook him for dinner.
Human meat turns out to be a huge success.
There isn't a real twist here, and what you expect to happen eventually does happen. But somehow it all works so well.
It's a funny episode, not a lot of gore but very satisfying and it has somewhat of a happy ending (except for Gaston).
Tales from the Crypt: Beauty Rest (1992)
It's what's inside that counts
Rather forgettable episode in my opinion.
The episode is about an aspiring actress/model who murders her roommate out of jealousy. Her roommate gets all the parts by sleeping with producers.
So she decides to kill for a beauty pageant part. The winner gets to sell themselves.
What Helen did not know is that the winner could become Miss Autopsy.
The twist was predictable, so it made the build up work poorly. The characters weren't very likable either.
However, it was enjoyable to an extend but not an episode to remember.
Tales from the Crypt: Seance (1992)
Fun little con story with a ghost twist.
It's about two con artists, they try to blackmail a rich man into giving them a ton of money.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work out well for any of them. He falls down an elevator shaft and is squashed by the lift.
They try to con his blind wife into giving them the money, by playing up a ghost act. Unfortunately for them, he returns as a ghost and his vengeance was incredibly sweet.
Original con horror story.
Fun episode, if not a bit silly.
Prank gone wrong
A very enjoyable, and somewhat trippy episode.
It's about a research team, the leader, George, is somewhat of a dick.
After his two co-workers discover the cure they were looking for. They decide to play a prank on him and inject him with, what he thinks, are tumors.
He finds out and thinks that they tried to kill him, so he murders one of them and takes him to the cops.
In the end, he turns out to be OK and he murdered someone for no reason.
Dylan McDermott did a great job as George and I enjoyed the little twist. Fun episode.
Rock 'n Roll trouble
A pretty average episode, not as strong as the previous ones. But still quite entertaining.
This is the only episode with full frontal male nudity, albeit very brief.
The story is about a rock band, and it's lead singer has trouble getting along with the to-be-wive of the guitarist.
One of his lady friends shows him her new tattoo, which is a snake that comes across as being alive.
He likes it so much that he goes to the tattooist and his tattoo ends up being Scarlett. She is that deep within his skin.
After removing the tattoo, it just keeps coming back and even after killing her, she continues to live within his skin.
I enjoyed the ending very much, which practically saves this episode from being forgettable.
A great start to Season 4! This episode was gory, funny, well-written and full of incredible guest stars.
The episode is about a con man who made old rich ladies fall in love with him, until he poisons them and keeps their money.
The episode had a high-body count, with some of the deaths being pretty cool. Tom Hanks in particular as he gets thrown into a TV screen and gets electrocuted.
One of the most memorable endings yet also happens in this episode as the man is driven to the graveyard by a gravedigger where his dead wives await him and apparently eat him/tear him apart.
Overall, one of the better episodes yet.
Tales from the Crypt: Yellow (1991)
A war story
An extraordinary achievement for Tales from the Crypt.
One of the best things about this show is that not all episodes are horror -- and usually the ones that aren't, are top-notch.
This episode is about a cowardly soldier during World War 1, his father is a general and feels deeply embarrassed for his son.
During his most important mission, he fails to do anything and lets his men die. This causes his father to sentence him to death.
The guy, Martin, is afraid to die so his father explains to him that he will swap the bullets in the guns with blanks. The only favor he asks of his son is to pretend like he is courageous during the 'fake' execution.
Well, turns out that he didn't swap the bullets with blanks, he just wanted to have his son die like a 'man'.
The episode is very well written, especially for this show's standards. And the performances are top-notch, loved to see Lance Henriksen make another appearance.
Overall, one of the best, if not the best episode of the show.
Tales from the Crypt: Spoiled (1991)
One of the funniest episodes of Tales up till now. I love episodes that are different from others, and despite this not being horror, or scary in any way. It sure did entertain.
The episode is about a sleazy housefrau that watches way too many soaps. She idolizes this sexual character on TV that sleeps with whoever she wants to.
Her own husband is a doctor, but he is busy playing with a bunny to notice her. So she starts quoting her idol and starts sleeping around with the cable guy.
Eventually, it comes back to bite them as her husband catches them in the act and switches their heads and bodies.
Overall, a tame but very funny and well-done episode.
Tales from the Crypt: Deadline (1991)
An okay episode of Tales from the Crypt.
While I appreciated the more... realistic angle of the episode, and the decent performances. as far as these type of episodes go, it could have been better and less predictable.
The episode was predictable from start to finish, and the plot was minimal.
The episode shows a side of humanity that most people carry, jealousy, addiction and the will to do whatever is best for your own good.
The lead character was pretty unlikeable, but the actor portraying him was one of the better actors in a while.
The Second season premiere is a slight slow-burner, but at the same time contains everything that I would wish this show to have.
It starts with a delightful opening, showing certain characters dressing up and getting ready for work. With the song "Twist Again" playing in the background.
Although it may feel like not all that much happens, it is the beginning of what is to come. There is brand new technology over at Sterling Cooper and Duck orders Don to hire new, younger staff.
We witness a more confident Peggy, trying to teach Don's new secretary; Lois, how to be a successful secretary. There was no mention of what went on after the last we saw of her. But the ad guys sure are gossiping about it, and we notice her painful reaction to Pete's question on whether she would want children or not.
Betty's character is also given much spotlight. Her marriage is just getting boring, especially for her. Don cannot even get it up for her during valentines day.
The book 'Meditations in an Emergency' gets mentioned a few times in this episode. and the closing scene is a quote straight from the book read by Don as he, presumably, sends it to Anna Draper.
Overall, it was a strong episode that Pro and sparked much interest for the second season.
I give it **** stars.
Mad Men: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes (2007)
A show with dazzling visuals
The very first episode of one of the finest, most gorgeous looking shows out there.
Not everyone can comprehend the brilliance of the show called 'Mad Men'. It is a show with dazzling visuals and sharp dialog. It is a show that could be appreciated by just listening to the dialog, or by just staring at the gorgeous visuals.
The first episode of Mad Men introduced the fine lads of Sterling Cooper agency. A man named Don Draper works there, but he is not like most men. Sure, he is arrogant and would win a word fight (because he is so good with words) against anybody. But in his own way, he is quite the gentleman. I admire him more than any other television character.
He is slick, very intelligent and practically lives a second life. He has a wife and two children, which is revealed at the end of the episode. But he also has an affair with a woman that is nothing like his wife. He seeks thrill, which he finds lacking in the superficial life of the rich. and yet he spills his gut to this gorgeous Jewish woman that did not take his crap. And she understands; 'Being a man must be hard, too'.
Another very fascinating character in my opinion is Pete Campbell. He is almost the opposite of Don. He craves power, but he is a gigantic douchebag. However, most of it is just an act. Sure, he is no angel, but deep down all he wants is love. He treats the new and very naive girl; Peggy Olson, like a piece of trash. But at the end of the day, he goes running towards her like a puppy dog.
All in all, the first episode of MadMen is a hit. It is like reading a book, and watching a classic 60's flick altogether. The dialog is sharp and quotable. And the episode is not short of eye-candy.
I give the first episode **** 1/2 stars
'The Post-Modern Prometheus' had it all for me
This might just be my favorite episode. It is truly hard to pick one, but if I had to, it would probably be this one.
'The Post-Modern Prometheus' had it all for me. It was a lot of fun to watch, it brought a smile upon my face time after time. Despite it having one of the most freaky 'monsters', it is a tragic story that reminds me of 'The Elephant Man'. A heavily deformed human being that is mistreated by others because of his deformities, but once the people get to know him, they realize that he has a great spirit and has feelings just like anybody else.
That final scene where everyone is gathered around to see this 'monster' might be my favorite scene of the X-Files. The hilarity behind it is that most of the village people's fathers are animals. There's a pig, a goat, a chicken etc. But at the same time, it is an incredibly touching piece of writing.
This is also the only episode that is black and white. It fits the look and the atmosphere of the episode, as does the comic book style of directing.
The episode ends with Mulder and Scully taking the great mutato to a concert of his biggest idol, Cher. That was really icing the cake.
What an episode.
Saved by the good ending
Yet another incredibly annoying episode, but unlike some previous ones, it had a great closure.
This episode is mainly about a very jealous husband and his bored wife. One day, a young man comes to work for the man and she sees an opportunity to kill her boredom. She tries to seduce him and that makes her husband very angry when he catches them.
He beats the young man called Ted and causes him to lose his sight. The men working for the guy take the opportunity and use Ted to get rid of their angry boss and heartless wife by giving Ted a chainsaw and pretending to be chopping wood.
It was a pretty annoying episode, but saved by the good ending.
Made me fear for my own life
After a few duds, the show is back in shape and delivers one of the best episodes until now.
This is one of the very few episodes that actually freaks me out. There were a few jumpy moments that made me fear for my own life.
The main lead is also great, the story is basically about a reporter/journalist trying to figure out who is killing homeless people.
In the end, he gets eaten up by ghouls. The make-up was excellent! Definitely one of the best looking episodes yet. The humor was sharp and the gore was at it's best. Definitely a classic!
Season 3 is very hit or miss
Yet another crappy episode, Season 3 is very hit or miss.
In this episode, four kids decide that they want to make a horror movie and go hide in a morgue. Little do they know that the undertaker is a murderer.
One of the young boy's father is murdered by the undertaker and some other guy, and the boys decide to take revenge.
In the end, they win, and the bad guy has his guts sucked out.
Meh, the episode fails because of more than one reason. The child actors are just horrible, and the dialog is poor. It tries too hard to be funny, and it just isn't. It looks very poorly produced and is just another Season 3 dud.
An very mixed episode of Tales
An very mixed episode of Tales, on one hand it did have a few memorable death scenes. The most memorable one being a dream in which the main character hammered some woman's skull in.
But the truth is, it was pretty predictable and the dialog left much to be desired. Tim Roth is a good actor and he played a memorable character, but the rest of the cast as mostly forgettable.
The end of the episode was extremely predictable, he kills a man to save the girl not knowing that the man was the only guy that could have saved her.
Another thing that bothered me was the woman's stupidity, he almost killed her after sex and she still waits for him at his house?
Deadwood: Here Was a Man (2004)
A very sad conclusion of one of the greatest characters of Deadwood
A very sad conclusion of one of the greatest characters of Deadwood. Only four episodes, but he won't ever be forgotten. This is a very important episode which sets up most of the characters. Mainly Jane, she goes downhill from here and turns into a depressing uncontrolable drunk.
This episode dealt with the aftermath of Brom's death. He's gone and Al had to keep Alma happy, but she is not numb. She hires Wild Bill to find out what happened to her husband. Wild Bill had two very memorable lines in this episode, 'Listen to the thunder' and 'Let me go to hell the way I want to'. He was a good, but tragic man wasted on a cruel world.
Meanwhile Ellsworth confesses to Dan, he saw it and now Dan has to decide what to do about it. Ellsworth is a great man and everybody loves him, especially Trixie.
This episode also introduces Andy Cramed, new in camp but deeply ill. He brings a plague into the camp. 'Here Was A Man' concludes with Jack, a whimpering fool shooting Bill in the head from behind. A very sad ending to a once powerful man.
Different from your usual vampire story
Something else entirely. This is a very goofy episode and very different from your usual vampire story. Not the first time the show has vampires, but it is more successful and more fun.
As the title says, the episode is about a reluctant vampire working as night shift at a bloodbank. He doesn't want to kill people and falls in love with one of his co-workers.
The episode plays out very nicely in the end, and the humor is laugh-out-loud funny. The show has had more comedic episodes but most of them with the exception of 'All Through The House' are too over the top to be considered great. This one was subtle and campy in a great way.
Tales from the Crypt: Dead Wait (1991)
A nice enough episode starring Whoopi
A nice enough episode starring Whoopi. It is the very first episode with an actor on the show appearing together with the Crypt Keeper.
The story is about a criminal looking for a pearl somewhere in Africa. There wasn't really a great story behind it, and the twist wasn't all too surprising. But what makes this episode fun was Whoopi and the gore. It is one of the goriest episodes yet. There is a headless chicken and Duval being sliced open full of worms.
The acting was all right, but would not consider it to be great. Especially with such a great cast. The dialog is mainly forgettable and the effects are so-so. Still, a fun episode.
Tales from the Crypt: Top Billing (1991)
I wasn't into the story
After two excellent episodes, the season takes another plunge.
It seems to be a well-liked episode, but I wasn't into the story or the humor up until the end. The nice plot twists saves it from scoring lower.
The episode is about a failed, unlucky and unattractive actor searching for work. His rival is everything but that. They both audition for a role in a Shakespeare production, and they chose the pretty rival. Barry decides to put an end to it and kills the handsome guy, only to discover that the part they were offering was the one of a skull.
If was kind of a tragic episode, full of dark humor. But it failed to keep me interested.
The episode had some great plot twists
The best episode so far, it was excellent! Some of it's moments were painful to watch and the episode was just traumatic, haunting and gory. It had everything, it was even funny.
The episode is about a younger brother playing a prank on his older, much smarter brother. It causes him to have a heart attack and lose the feeling in one of his hands.
As revenge, he pays his little brother back with a much more dangerous prank, which causes him his life.
The episode had some great plot twists and I ended up feeling bad for the kid, must suck being stuck in your own body and being cut open.
The season delivers it's first classic
After a terrible start to Season 3, the season delivers it's first classic.
It stars Kyle, who is an excellent actor and a dimwitted criminal. The cop following him ends up handcuffing himself after getting shot.
The episode is purely entertaining, fun and gory. It had one of the best endings, with Kyle getting eaten alive. It was hilarious and icky at the same time.
One thing that I cannot understand is why the hell Earl didn't decapitate the cop's hand. Would have been a lot smarter than to carry him for 6 miles. But nobody's perfect.
Season 3 is off to a bad start
After a crappy opener for Season 3, the second episode proves to be just as crappy and annoying.
The episode is about a failure of a script writer who fantasizes about having a girl who is head-over-heels inlove with him. Then he meets this annoying failure of an actress and his landlord gives him a potion that makes her addicted to him.
After a while, he realized how annoying it is to have someone obsessing over you.
The episode is a mess, the dialog and performances are too over the top and the ending was just incredibly corny. Season 3 is off to a bad start.
Tales from the Crypt: The Trap (1991)
A very poor way to hit off into the third season
A very poor way to hit off into the third season. Terrible dialog, acting and 'twist'.
The story is about some douchebag who treats his wife and brother horribly. They are in desperate need of money, and his brother and wife help him fake his own death. The whole thing was improbable and convenient.
Once they got all the insurance money, everybody pretended not to know him anymore and was accused of murdering himself. So he got the death penalty.
The episode was just way off, nothing worked for me and none of the characters were remotely likable or interesting.
Definitely one of the worst episodes so far.
Another excellent dramatic episode dealing with love
Another excellent dramatic episode dealing with love.
On one hand with have Sam and Cindy. It's purely superficial, Sam only likes her because she is hot. Everyone does. But the thing is, she is boring and shallow. She and Sam don't have the same interests, which is okay. but the necklace thing went too far, she is a stuck-up self-centered bitch. Neil really annoyed me in this episode, he as always only sees the superficial aspect. He'd make a great jock.
then we have Ken and Amy. They are a great couple, have the same humor and interests. They are perfect together. The problem here is that Amy was born as part girl/part guy. And that freaked out Ken, it would freak out most naive heterosexual men. It freaked him out so much because he kinda loved her, it almost made him think he was gay. Of course, back then, being gay meant being into disco.
One of the best scenes of this episode was the conversation between Ken and Sam in the bathroom. It made them both realize what had to be done, Ken going for it and Sam breaking up with Cindy.
There was more going on, but that is what made the episode so great.
