After being found in the swimming pool of his former apartment, BoJack was rescued – and sentenced to eighteen months in jail for breaking and entering. A year into his incarceration, BoJack is allowed out on day release for a very important event – Princess Carolyn’s wedding. Continue reading
BoJack is at a dinner party. But it’s no ordinary gathering. Sarah Lynn is there, and his mother, plus a few other friends and acquaintances – all of them deceased. In fact, it’s the same as the recurring dream he’s been having, the one where he always wakes up after dessert. But is BoJack going to wake up safe and sound this time? Continue reading
While filming “The Horny Unicorn”, BoJack gets a call from Angela Diaz, the network exec who once fired Herb from Horsin’ Around. Meanwhile, Todd tries to reconnect with his mother, and a dream offer forces Princess Carolyn to consider what’s really important to her.
In the last few episodes, we’ve seen BoJack paying the price for his years of bad behaviour. He lost his money, his house, his popularity and even his friends. But there was still one thing that he held dear – the years he spent on Horsin’ Around. As you might guess, this episode sets out to change that. Continue reading
It’s been a while, but we’re almost through this book, so let’s get down to the final chapters. I must admit I’ve forgotten the names of many of the supporting characters, but let’s hope that doesn’t impede this too much.
You may recall from the last blog that Evil Mrs Pincent turned out to have a Tragic Backstory, in which the son she wanted so dearly was born a Surplus. Mrs Pinsent always believed that said son was killed as baby, but in a narrative twist, our hero Peter turns out to have her family’s ring – the very ring she left with the child. Continue reading
While trying to save an alien ship, the Enterprise is dragged into a mysterious parallel universe where time runs in reverse. Kirk and the crew begin working with the natives of this universe to find a way home, but when the entire crew starts rapidly ageing in reverse, they have to act quickly.
Well, here we are, at the unremarkable end of this unremarkable series. With its parallel universe where black stars “shine” in a white void, this episode was one of the few that had stuck in my mind over the years. What I’d forgotten, it turned out, was quite how bad the actual plot is. Continue reading
While tracing the origin of a mysterious alien probe, the Enterprise encounters a powerful alien being who once came to Earth as the Mayan god Kukulkan. Kukulkan has been waiting for centuries for humans to call him back to Earth, but when he realises that he is largely forgotten, he decides to set a test for the Enterprise crew. Continue reading
When the Enterprise pays a visit to the planet Dramia, Dr McCoy is placed under arrest for apparently having caused a plague some nineteen years earlier. In the hopes of clearing McCoy, Kirk and Spock launch an investigation – only to encounter a recurrence of the same plague. Continue reading
It’s been three months since BoJack’s disastrous interview with Biscuits Braxby. With the public still very much against him, BoJack turns instead to his new AA sponsor – disgraced celebrity Vance Waggoner.
We’re rolling down the slope towards the end of the series here, and this episode showcases some more of the things BoJack manages to lose along the way. Now a pariah in the public eye, BoJack is hated wherever he goes. His good friend Diane has moved away, while Todd and Princess Carolyn seem very much done with his bullshit. Mr Peanutbutter is still friendly and welcoming, but in many ways, that’s meaningless – Mr Peanutbutter is affable towards everybody he meets. Continue reading
After the Enterprise passes through a strange energy cloud, the crew notice that they are becoming the butt of a series of increasingly silly – and dangerous – practical jokes. When it becomes clear that the culprit is none other than the ship’s computer, Kirk and crew must figure out how to deal with the issue. Continue reading
The Enterprise is playing host to an observer – Ari bn Bem from the planet Pandro. On a mission to observe the natives of an alien planet, Bem decides to accompany Kirk and his landing party, only to create trouble at every turn. Continue reading
