Doctor Who 5×08 The Hungry Earth recap

Posted in Doctor who with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2010 by Geek Tv

The Doctor, Amy and Rory land in the small Welsh village of Cwmtaff in 2020, instead of Rio de Janeiro which irks Amy who is “dressed for Rio” and feels cold. The Doctor notices a major mining operation nearthe village and proceeds to investigate with Amy. Before they set off Rory asks Amy to leave her engagement ring back so she won’t lose it and she gives it to him. Rory goes to leave the ring in the TARDIS while Amy follows the Doctor.
Amy and the Doctor discover that the mining operation is a project by Doctor Nasreen Chaudry and her assistant, Tony Mack, investigating the appearance of minerals that have not been seen for over 20 million years (which the Doctor had also noticed in the form of patches of blue grass). Meanwhile, Rory is mistaken for a police officer by local resident Ambrose Northover (Tony’s daughter), and her son Elliot, who explains that the dead are being removed from their graves, but there is no sign of disturbance on the surface, which could only mean the bodies are being taken from below. Creepy.

An earthquake hits the mining facility, causing parts of the ground to open. Tony falls into the cracks and Amy goes to help him but falls in as well. Nasreen is able to pull Tony free but something beneath the ground drags Amy under. In the aftermath, the Doctor explains that the minerals were a warning to keep away and that when they started drilling, the ground ‘fought back’. The Doctor realises that the ground has been bio-programmed to attack whenever it perceives a threat, which should be impossible as he remarks humans will not develop such technology for millenia. At that moment, an alarm goes off; the drill, having gone down 21 kilometres has breached into a network of underground catacombs, and three unknown entities are heading up. With only twelve minutes until the unknown attackers reach the surface, the Doctor orders the pair to take safety in the local church, where they meet up with Rory, Ambrose and Elliot. The Doctor (using a slingshot!!!!) discovers that the attackers have erected an energy barricade to prevent escape and turned day into night for their own benefit. In private, the Doctor tells Rory what has happened and promises to get Amy back.

The Doctor has the group barricade themselves in the church and sets up a network of cameras to let him know when the attackers arrive, but problems arise when Elliot leaves to collect headphones from his house, as the attackers- strange reptilian humanoids- have arrived and take him. Ambrose and Tony run out to try and rescue him, but another one of the creatures attacks, lashing Tony with a venomous forked tongue before being subdued and captured by the Doctor and Rory with a fire extinguisher. The Doctor deduces that these attackers are a new species of an old enemy; the Silurians. At that point, the energy barricade dissipates and daylight returns; the Doctor explains that the Silurians have retreated, as now both sides have hostages to bargain with.

The group imprison the captured Silurian in the church’s cellar and the Doctor goes to interrogate it. The prisoner, a female member of the warrior caste called Alaya, reluctantly explains that her tribe had hibernated beneath Cwmtaff for eons, but the drill was perceived as a threat to them and the warrior caste were reawakened to deal with the threat. The Doctor explains that the humans didn’t mean any harm, but Alaya aggressively snarls that the Silurians will not tolerate mankind (whom she derogatively refers to as “apes”) on what they still view as their planet. The Doctor tries to warn her that mankind will fight back if threatened, but she is confident of the Silurians’ victory over humanity.

The Doctor explains the Silurians’ history to the group and that he intends to go underground and negotiate with the Silurians, and tells them that Alaya must be kept safe if they are to bargain with them. Tony (who has a really nasty and icky situation going on on his neck because of Alaya’s venom) comments that they should be studying the creature by dissecting it, but the Doctor refuses, saying that if Alaya is harmed, the Silurians could view it as an act of war. The Doctor and Nasreen, who having studied the earth all her life wants to see it for herself, descend in the TARDIS, while the others speak to Alaya. They try to assure her they don’t mean any harm and that she will be kept safe, but she replies that they will kill her, triggering an unwinnable war between humans and Silurians. She also remarks that she knows who will kill her, even if they don’t.

Deep underground, Amy awakens strapped to an examining table. Next to her is Ambrose’s husband, Mo, who was taken earlier by the Silurians. He apologises, explaining that the Silurians intend to vivisect them, as a Silurian in scrubs advances on them with a scalpel. The Doctor and Nasreen arrive in the catacombs, the Doctor explaining that they are unlikely to find more than a dozen Silurians, but falls silent as they enter a cave and find an immense Silurian civilisation, stretching for miles underground before them…

And… we’ll see what happens this Saturday!

Posted in Doctor who with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2010 by Geek Tv

I still owe you guys a recap for this. And one for The Vampire Diaries finale but things have been really hectic here, I might end up jobless and on top of that fell off a chair while looking for my copy of The Ghost King :/ [enter FML here]

Soooo here are some screencaps to keep you occupied and I hope you can forgive me for not posting the recaps yet 🙂

Karen Gillan Wants Nessy on Doctor Who

Posted in Doctor who with tags , , , , , , , on May 17, 2010 by Geek Tv

Karen Gillan has revealed that she would like an episode of Doctor Who set in Scotland.

The actress, who plays companion Amy Pond, told the Daily Record that she has already suggested the idea to showrunner Steven Moffat.

“The Scots are taking over,” she said. “I said to Steven that we should do something with the Loch Ness Monster in Inverness.”

She added: “I would love to see someone like Billy Connolly in the show. I just think we should have someone who’s a big character and who is really funny. Someone like that, who is Scottish.”

Gillan also revealed that she is pleased that she can play Amy with a Scottish accent.

“After I was cast, they still weren’t sure if Amy was going to be English or Scottish and we just decided that she could be Scottish,” she explained. “But it was really nice to be able to do it in my own accent because it’s obviously something I feel more comfortable doing. I really think it suits her.”

Supernatural 5×22 Swan Song recap

Posted in Subs, Supernatural with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2010 by Geek Tv

Before I start the recap I must say that no matter how many more seasons SPN gets, I’ll always consider this the real ending much like Threads was the real ending of Stargate SG-1 for me.

Both the Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries finales didn’t want to be watched. My internet was retarded as I mentioned to you on Friday morning so I couldn’t get hold of the episode. After a lot of cursing and kicking inanimate objects and swearing at the stupid frakers who chose to mess up with the net lines, I managed to find the episodes on rapidshare and oh jolly good holy cow of internet! The speed was stable and high even with a free download 😮 I’m never going back to torrents… Anyway so I put on the episode to watch (greek subs had already been uploaded much to my hubby’s delight) and we were (expectedly) greeted by Carry on My Wayward Son by Kansas. I have an unhealthy obsession with this song. It also makes me get all shivery and tearry and of course prepare the ground for another epic season finale.

After the road so far a kinda out of place narration about cars came up. At that point I started thinking that I might have gotten a fake file but then of course the Metallicar was mentioned. And apparently the Impala is currently the single most importan thing in the universe. WTF o_O My hubby speculated it is going to be Lucifer’s cage but I said “No way.”

We see Dean and Sam sharing a beer and Dean agrees to Sam’s plan to trap Lucifer. They gather around four gallons of demon blood and the Winchesters, Cas and Bobby set out to meet up with the devil in Detroit. Sam mentions that should he succeed he would be trapped in Hell along with Lucifer and has to make Dean promise not to attempt to bring him back (probably selling his soul again in the process).  Horrified, Dean refuses, but Sam stands his ground.  He tells Dean that he should find Lisa and settle into a normal family life, white fence and all that jazz. Sam then proceeds to say goodbye to Bobby and Castiel emotional and hilarious goodbyes, respectively and then gulps down the demon blood. Ew.

We get an interlude of Chuck, narrating, explaining about all the tidbits that made the Impala special, including a soldier Sam crammed into an ashtray some Lego Dean shoved up the heater and the brothers carving their initials on the car. We also find out that on clear sky nights the Winchesters beers at hand stargazed for hours. And then it dawned on me WHY the Impala is important and what role it would play.

The Winchesters and co set off to find Luci and when they do Sam tells him he’s there to sa yes which surprises Luci. It’s one thing for your resume to say you made the devil feel surprised! Sam does some epic demon killing to prove he’s ready but then Luci spills thahem that he knew all along about their plans with the Horsemen’s rings.  Dean wants out of the plan since they no longer hold the element of surprise, but Sam doesn’t think it matters since he’s going to have to battle Luci’s will anyway.  Sam says the definite and final yes and Lucifer jumps him. Dean manages to open the chasm and runs to check on the still unconscious Sam who comes to and seems ready to jump in the pit. And here I am thinking the rest of the episode will take place inhell. I was wrong. Thank God. It turns out it’s been Lucifer all along since he came to and was only messing with Dean. Jared Padalecki has some serious hot acting going on. You really see in his eyes that he goes over to the cookies of the darkside . Brrrr.

Leaving Dean in despair Luci pops out and proceeds to play with his world sandbox. Cas and Bobby want to give up, as there is little to no hope left, but Dean of course won’t give away Sammy so easily.  He calls Chuck, who reveals that the showdown between Michael and Lucifer will take place in a graveyard outside of -where else really? – Lawrence, Kansas.  As Chuck said, it needs to end where it began.

To be honest I expected a big showdown between Luci and Mike. I wasn’t disappointed with the way they chose to go though.  Samcifer meets with Adamichael in the graveyard and the two brothers talk. Lucifer tells his brother that they don’t need to fight – that they should stop letting their father (God) order them around.  Michael who’s uber loyal disagrees. They sound awfully like Sam and Dean over John. But we’ve done that parallel before.

And here comes Dean on his black stallion Impala. Dean wants to talk to Sam, but Michael tells him to sod off. Then Castiel appears and tosses a holy molotov on Michael (using my new favourite insult – assbutt) incinerating him for the time being, buying Dean time to speak to Samcifer. Luci though is pissed because noone fraks with his brother but him and blows Cas up. We’re talking meatgrinder deal. For the second time. Dean is still trying to reach out to Sam, trying to make him take his body’s wheel but then Lucifer decides to throw Dean on the Impala windshield (which breaks – OW) that triggers Bobby to -stupidly- shoot Lucifer with the Colt which does squat. Lucifer,  pissed breaks Bobby’s neck.

😐 I expected Castiel OR Bobby. Not both. Dammit!

Lucifer beats Dean up into next week but Dean tells Sammy that he’s not going to leave him. If Sam is to die, Dean is tagging along.  He’s not even fighting back.   And it’s Dean face, filled with emotional pain and love for his little brother paired with a bit of sunshine flaring on the Impala’s chromes into Lucifer’s eyes, a glance at the toy soldier  that finally reaches Sam. We are hit with a wave of flashbacks (including my favourite brother moment of them singing Dead or Alive) that show how close the brothers really are. They never had anyone than each other for their whole lives and now it’s all rushing through Sam’s mind, helping him break to the surface.  He ends up panting as Dean sits bleeding and broken on the ground and tells Dean it’s all gonna be alright.

Sam opens the portal to Hell himself just as Michael returns and tells Lucifer that they will fight and that it is their destiny. But Dean worded it well in Point of no Return. “Screw destiny right in the face. I say we take the fight to them and do it our way.” Sam obviously agrees with this statement and grabs Michael dragging him along in the pit.

At this point the avi decided to freeze on me *golfclap* I told you this ep didn’t want to be watched 😐 And I found mysefl annoyingly tearry realising that maybe Sam wouldn’t be returning for season 6…

Dean still on the ground where his brother disappeared into Hell, obviously pained, now alone. COmpletely alone. He’s lost everyone. Wait no- Cas had returned and his angel mojo is back. Dean asks Cas if he’s God but Cas says no. (shoot, there goes one of my theories) Cas heals Dean’s severaly damaged body and then ressurects Bobby.

Cas thinks he’ll return to Heaven now.  With Michael gone and God still missing, the chain of command is likely broken and someone needs to put things in a line.

We once again are treated by Chuck’s narration telling us that Bobby and Dean part ways and will not see each other again for a long time. We’re promised Bobby will resume his normal hunter duties by next week.

Dean heads off to Lisa’s house and settles in.  We see him sitting at the table with Ben and Lisa obviously pained but still in one piece. It seems as if the episode ends as the camera zooms out of the window. Outside Lisa’s house we see a streetlight flicker off and there is Sam, looking in on his brother. And the episode ends leaving us to bite our nails for the whole of the summer until we find out what’s in store for the Winchesters. Will Sam believe that Dean finally got the normal family life he always wanted and won’t tell him he’s alive? And how the eff is Sam back?

After he was done narrating and writing the story of the Winchesters and the Apocalypse, we see Chuck one more time. Clad in a white shirt he simply smiled and disappeared into thin air. My husband exclaimed “Oh, so He is God!” and I wholeheartedly agree. I think God was helping the boys a little but let it on their free will. Now that their free will has been proven victorious it is time to aid themby returning Cas and (probably) Sammy. There are theories that Sammy is a ghost. Could he be a ghost in Season 6 like Spike was on Angel?

My lappy battery is running out so I will end this recap here. You can find screenshots of the episode in a previous post.

Goodnight 🙂

‘Supernatural’ fans loyal to Jensen

Posted in Supernatural with tags , , , , on May 11, 2010 by Geek Tv

Supernatural has been on TV long enough that Jensen Ackles feels he has grown up in front of the camera.

“It’s a very common phrase we use on set: ‘Wow, you were much better in your 20s,’ ” Ackles said. “And it applies to a lot of people.”

Ackles may have turned 32 earlier this year, but neither he nor his character on Supernatural have slowed down. In fact, when Supernatural airs its fifth-season finale on Thursday, (CW, Sun-TV in Ontario), the series essentially will wrap up the main spooky storyline that has played out over a half-decade.
