[S2E6] This Is Not Good

"Two-Ply (or Not Two-Ply)" was a decent episode of this series. There's been a downturn in the quality of the cases over the last handful of episodes, but the way the doctors act is still as engaging as ever.

The main focus of this episode has to be the concept that Gungi and Omega are kids growing up in a continuing war. Both Omega and Gungi have been trained for combat essentially since birth but even still we see their youthful stubbornness rear its head when they both charge headlong into battle. While a Wookie Jedi after Order 66 would certainly be an absolutely terrifying thing for anyone to see it also makes Gungi a target.

The idea of a Tribe and Gungi finally being able to return makes an excellent story for the Bad Batch. This is the kind of work that Echo (and possibly the audience of the show) have really been looking for. It was quite nostalgic to see clones working with a Jedi again, and comforting to know that at least one of those beloved younglings made it out of Order 66 again. This was one of the best episodes of the entire show, and hopefully, we have more like this in store soon.

With the Star Trek: Mission Chicago event set to give fans access to the cast and an infinite amount of new merchandize to spend their hard-earned credits on this weekend, there's no denying "Star Trek" seems to have hit peak popularity. Regardless of how you feel about the last season of "Discovery" or the current season of "Picard" there's no escaping the might of the Paramount Plus (opens in new tab) Marketing Machine.

The most recent episode of "Picard" entitled "Two of One" marks the passing of the halfway point in the second season with just four episodes left. This latest installment will also almost certainly polarize fans and it feels like an attempt to please everyone, rather than purely picking a style and sticking to it. If the writer's chose Route A and stuck to it, then OK. If they chose Route B, that's OK too. But crisscrossing as much as this show does ("Discovery" also suffers from affliction) just makes it feel uneven and inconsistent. And for the love of Yarnek, please give Michelle Hurd (Raffi) something more dynamic to work with.

And yet, despite some entertaining allusions to his condition by Rios a couple of weeks ago in episode 4, the showrunners have dived headfirst into a story that revolves around a medical crisis involving Jean-Luc Picard; that now requires shining an anti-aircraft-sized searchlight on this issue.

Credit where credit is due, the concept is quite clever, or at the very least, ambitious. This is a dialogue intensive, pump-the-breaks-a-bit, self-contained installment, so to speak. Not a great deal actually happens, but it still mostly retains your attention. It might have worked better if it didn't fall back to some clichéd character writing, and in particular, young vodka-downing astronaut Renée Picard (Penelope Mitchell). Had the superfluous dialogue and unconvincing need to hang around and wait for Alison Pill's moment in the spotlight been shortened, this entire episode-length set piece could've been just as effective within a longer episode. It's been stretched out almost as long as it possibly could be and been turned into an entire episode unto itself, albeit not a particularly long one.

At which point, everyone here at is praying to the gods of science fiction (for there are many) at the altar on Altair that some kind of patched-in, vintage console game is used, just like in the Emmy Award winning episode of "Red Dwarf" entitled "Gunmen of the Apocalypse" (S03, E03). Why not? We've covered cabaret successfully in this installment, why not comedy next week?

It's possible this will fare better in a binge watch, but unless Paramount changes its strategy (which will never happen) this episode will almost certainly get mixed reaction upon first airing in its week-by-week format.

Good Morning Erin,I have been following you for a while, just silently, so I figured now was a good time to Just wanted to drop a note and say I enjoyed this episode. I try to do some of your yoga episodes about 5x a week, it is helping me get some flexibility back. Thanks for all you do

Most batshit crazy outfit:Lorelai's lace-up baseball tee, bandana, and lightwash jeans are bad, but I kind of consider them standard at this point. Rory wears a bunch of sweaters that make her look 20 pounds heavier than she is, but again ... no surprises there. The most standout "wtf-ery" is definitely Rory's debutante ball dress. It feels weirdly incomplete, like someone finished making a corset and then just said, "let's jazz this up by tacking a big, poufy skirt onto it." And don't even get me started on those fucking gloves.

After this scene, my husband turned to me and said (in a tone mocking Lorelai), "I'm going to validate you into a dysfunctional adulthood." Want to know why Rory is such an obviously damaged person in AYitL? It's partially because of this hyperbolic flattery that Lorelai can't seem to shake.

The movie Lorelai's referring to is "Moment by Moment." I've seen it and can confirm that it's hilariously awful. John Travolta plays a greasy pill-pusher named Strip, which basically tells you everything you need to know. The director, Jane Wagner, is Lily Tomlin's wife and I'm not quite sure how she let this fiasco happen. (This movie was made in 1978, so Jane and Lily weren't married at the time it was filmed, but I think they were together.)

Books mentioned/books Rory is reading:Christopher finally buys Rory "The Compact Oxford English Dictionary." It's a good thing his credit card was declined the first time he tried to purchase it, because this new edition has the word "jiggy" in it ?.

Best song of the episode:"Jubilee" by Grant Lee Buffalo. He sings this song as the Gilmores walk past him post-cotillion. The music in this episode kinda sucks, tbh. The song Christopher blasts in his Volvo is "Du Hast" by Rammstein, a band I put in the same category as System of a Down. I actually feel like it's out of character for Christopher to like them. He seems more like a U2 guy to me.

Thoughts:Richard is a colossal dickhead to Emily throughout this episode and it's miraculous that they didn't separate sooner in their relationship. I know they came of age in a different time (or whatever excuse you want to give), but the way he treats her is demeaning and unacceptable. Richard might act like he doesn't give a shit about her "social engagements," but he totally does! Status and appearance are important to these people, and Emily is the one responsible for maintaining those public ties.

I love the end of this episode, when Lorelai shows up unannounced and explains to Emily that she's "just here to hang." The moments when Lorelai is able to empathize with Emily and extend kindness are few and far between, but some of the best of the series. Other favorites are when they steal robes together in "There's the Rub" and when Lorelai buys Emily a DVD player in "Dear Emily and Richard." Lorelai and her mom might have a contentious relationship, but they love and support each other when it matters most.

I also like the way Lorelai handles Rory's decision to participate in the debutante ball. She doesn't hold back her criticism of this deeply patriarchal ritual, but she supports Rory nonetheless. This is the conversation they have:

Rory: I'm doing this.Lorelai: Why?Rory: Because you should've seen the look on Grandma's face when she asked me. It's just really really important to her.Lorelai: But ...Rory: Now if it's that important to her, and it's not that important to me, then why shouldn't I do it?Lorelai: Rory, do you now what a coming out party says?Rory: It says I'm a woman now.Lorelai: No. It says, 'Hi, I'm Rory. I'm of good breeding and marriageable age, and I will now parade around in front of young men of similarly good breeding and marriageable age so they can all take a good long look at me.'Rory: You're exaggerating.Lorelai: No, it's like animals being up for bid at the county fair, except sheep don't wear hoop skirts.Rory: Look, I promised, but you don't have to be apart of it if you don't want to.Lorelai: No, no, if you wanna do it, I'll help. It's just weird. This is all the stuff I ran away from. I just assumed you'd be running with me.

Dr. Stone is clearly aimed at kids. As I say each week, I really like this series and I think adults can enjoy it just fine, but you do see the archetypes and structures which are meant for a younger audience, or maybe an all age audience. So I keep thinking that if I had seen Dr. Stone when I was little, it would probably have remained one of my all time favourites. Seeped in nostalgia and full of warm memories.

Chrome felt furious, of course. He saw himself as a real user of science. But just as he was about to say something stupid, he realized this was an opportunity: He could play primitive and lull You and his cronies into a false sense of superiority.

We hear this song around the 28:27 mark during a sex scene with Terry and Markeisha. In an opposite hotel Detectives Bryant and Jin are watching Terry in hopes of catching him doing something illegal

This song plays around the 35:18 mark when Nicole enters the nail shop to see Meech and Hoop meeting with the store owner to give her some money to presumably help them wash their BMF earnings. Nicole takes issue with this with the owner, but the owner dismisses her worries. 041b061a72
