I don't even...
This was just a mess of an episode. Absolutely contrived writing which seemed to abandoned the plot of the first half of the episode in favor of something that made no sense in the second. Their portrayal of the villains as an ISIS-like cell was absolutely ridiculous and, frankly, insulting considering the evil that group is wreaking upon the world. Even worse, it was like watching the episode where they had a chase scene using Second Life, portraying the mundane in such a serious light that I was rolling on my floor, laughing so hard that I got a hernia (not really, but you get it). This was simply the writers attempting to bank on Internet culture, memes, and fandom to do their work for them. Perhaps the most offensive thing about this episode is all of the hype about it portraying the harassment of women, while a contingent of experience cops and detectives do nothing to stop victimization. Absolutely disgusting.
Pitch Black (2000)
A great movie.
This is one of my favorite movies. David Twohy does a great job of setting the environment to make you FEEL like you're on an alien planet. The plot is, a spaceship carrying cargo and a few passengers goes off course and get into an asteroid belt, and then crash land on a desert planet. Vin Diesel does a great job acting as Richard B. Riddick, the cold, ruthless, heartless killer. Cole Hauser makes a great performance as Johns, the black-hearted Bountyhunter, along with Radha Mitchell as Carolyn Fry, who's stuck in the middle between Riddick and John's fighting. My favorite, though, was Kieth David (Imam). Kieth David has played in "John Carpenter's: The Thing", he appeared in "There's Something About Mary", and has narrated a few things as well. I think he delivers the best performance, followed by Cole Hauser.
There's a lot of speculation that this is a rehash of "Alien", but IN FACT, "The Chronicles of Riddick" was a novel written by Alan Dean Foster in the early 1970's, BEFORE he wrote "Aliens". "The Chronicles of Riddick" novel had an opening like this (it wasn't an entire separate book called "Pitch Black", but it had a prologue like this.) This is a great movie, and has great performances, and all the actors/actresses fit their characters. This is a great movie to watch the the lights off, and while snuggling something. It's very scary, but it has those parts that WILL make you jump. I very much suggest this movie!
