Re: In A Mirror, Darkly: Best cold open ever?

I don't need to care about what happens to a character in such a ridiculous "I want him/her to lose/win" way to enjoy a piece of fiction.
About the other thing, well, no. As Bluedana has pointed out, evil is anything but one-dimensional. Archer was ambitious and Reed sadistic but Forrest was just a part of the system. The characters are anything but simple.

Archer was fascinatingly repulsive with that hair cut.

Also, Bakula seems far more lively and nuanced as MU Archer than our Archer.

I suspect Bakula had a lot of fun playing an antihero for a change. I knew of him, and had probably seen him on Murphy Brown, but didn't really take much notice until he did the horror film Lord of Illusion, and thought he did well in it.

I didn't notice MU-Archer's hairstyle change, though I'm pretty dense about that sort of thing, as my ex-wife could tell you.

Were you that person who thought Janeway had only ONE hairstyle?

No, I did notice some of them, but it sometimes takes a week for it to reach the brain.

I've been trying to keep track of your rank too, because I think you're close to a promotion. Oh, sorry, you were approaching 20000 posts the other day but are now past it. So congrats anyway.

Oh the rank changed at 16K I think.. next rank change is 32K. And after you've doubled that one you probably need some sunlight.

Re: In A Mirror, Darkly: Best cold open ever?

You wouldn't want to be in the sun long here. The forecast for today is 104F/40C, and the sun won't be up for another hour. We'll probably be near 120/48 before July. To make it worse, the apartment complex hasn't turned on the cooling system yet, so there's no escape from it in the room. I'm dehydrating so much, the last few days I'm only getting about 2 hours sleep at a time. Last year the cooling system was out for 2 weeks during the hottest days of the year, and it nearly killed me (seriously).

Hey I live in Australia, I know all about heat

But seriously, maybe you should get an evaporative cooler, one that you have inside.

Re: In A Mirror, Darkly: Best cold open ever?

Some tenants bought their own room air conditioners. If the cooling system puts out the juice it did last year, I may have to save up for one instead of for a TOS collection.

Eek - too much heat (and I tend to like the heat).

I offer you our chilly mornings.

Re: In A Mirror, Darkly: Best cold open ever?

I've been in Arizona the last 20 years, but most of my life was in the midwest with regular seasons. I don't miss the snow, but I can't get used to the heat. For the first 5 years, I had heat exhaustion every year.

Me too! I wish the film had done better -- I would have loved seeing Bakula as Harry D'Amour in a sequel or three.

Re: In A Mirror, Darkly: Best cold open ever?

The more crazy Archer had to get(Xindi Arc) the more Bakula seemed to enjoy himself. MU Archer kept me smiling for days.

Re: In A Mirror, Darkly: Best cold open ever?

The bloopers for each season are sometimes a riot, because Bakula seemed fond of intentionally blowing lines, pulling stunts on castmates, and outright teasing. In an outtake from "Carbon Creek", Connor Trinneer botches a take, and Bakula ribs him with "Haaa, you suck!" And everyone seemed to try to get Blalock to laugh.

You know, Iv'e actually got a DVD set with all the extras, including bloopers. I never really watched it. I think I will now.
