Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

I have never seen this. It has three stars on amazon tho. You know how bad something has to be to have three stars on amazon?

i don't know how much imma watch either. it has five seasons and i definitely will not be watching all of it

it starts with these guys discussing security for some event and their lips are slightly out of sync with their dialogue (maybe that's an amazon prime issue?)

this sequence goes on for several long, LONG minutes where the alien is giving this scifi boilerplate speech abut how they came to earth and cured diseases and ended world hunger and so forth
while this sniper guy is getting ready to shoot them
standard stuff you've seen millions of times

Show thread

Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

so the sniper aims at the alien and then this guy blocks the crosshairs, i mean he's very clearly and obviously blocking the target, the sniper instead of waiting for a clear shot just fires anyway and hits the guy who was in the way

i hate cop protagonists. they're boring. they're always written the same way. they may as well all be the same damn character and mostly they are boring af

so our protagonist is a cop and he works in this generic cop place where generic cop stuff is going on and has generic cop dialogue with this other guy

Show thread

Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

so the alien is here to touch us

also his (that's the pronoun they're using so that's what imma go with) name is Da'an and they are pronouncing it as two syllables
i don't why i'm annoyed by that but i am

someone thought the name William Boone was really cool, they say it multiple times in the intro and they're said it multiple times outside of the intro

Show thread

Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

oh yeah William Boone is gonna be a mary sue isn't he?

constant, awkward use of a protagonist's full name is never a good sign on that front and now his wife is saying shit like this

i'm gonna hate william boone, aren't i?

i mean i already kinda do cause he's looks like archer so

Show thread

Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

so the assassin from earlier follows boon'es wife and rams her car and makes her crash but they couldn't afford to actually crash a car i guess so she just throws her arm up and they cut away to this while you hear tires screeching and a crash

the dead guy from earlier is alive so i guess the assassin shot him on purpose because they're working together along with Lwaxanna and they want William Boone to join them

Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

okay

Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

the aliens want to inject William Boone with an engineered virus to make him smarter so he can work for them and lwaxanna says it also makes people obey them and she made a special version that won't do that part

@Taweret "Brain Wave Disorientation". :blob_raccoon_melt:

re: Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

@Taweret "SCANNING: THE BRAIN" well good, at least they got the right part of the body. I like how the "BRAIN WAVE DISORIENTATION" section has like three different sections for metabolism, phrased slightly differently. I bet they're all filling up or whatever at different rates too. "MEDICAL THINGS: DOING STUFF"

re: Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

@Taweret it looks like a cat toy that's been spray-painted blue. no seriously I have owned cat toys that look pretty much like that. it should have a sparkly ball that rolls around inside. ahah--I have discovered how we will Foil the Alien Menace!!

@Taweret "is that an intense essence in your weird arm-leech or are are you just happy to see me? I'm naked under this jumpsuit. you know what they say, the bigger the bald forehead..."

@Taweret I assumed that was why you were watching it.

Is this existenz? I think that's the name of the movie I'm thinking of at least

@Taweret "AND GET OILED UP"

Gene Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict, let's see how bad it is 

@Taweret

If William Boone was as cool as he ought to be, he'd respond like this:

Mmm, Mr Da'an'ie'el, why don't you take it off for me?

Or maybe he'd just cease to exist.

@Taweret "TIME TO GET NAKED, HUMANS" I tell you this alien is an interstellar porn tourist

@Taweret What do you think that bit in the lower left is?

Does their medical computer have a golf mini-game?

So the doctors don't get bored?

@Taweret I was going to say how amazing it is that at least 2 people looked at this and decided to leave it as is, but considering the rest of how this has been going...
