Random Rewatch - B8 Hostage
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Eight - Hostage
The date: Tuesday, September 27th, 2016
The time: 7.45pm UK time

Random Rewatch - No 37

Selected by Brad

In which we find out Blake is very, very keen on his first cousin Inga (think of the children!!) – poor Jenna really needs to give him up as a bad job.

Also, Travis becomes an outlaw and is suddenly surrounded by Crimos (what happened to his Mutoids?); Kevin Stoney appears and crosses swords with our Servie; Cally and Jenna relieve their boredom of being left on the Libby for yet another Barney episode by ejecting a Crimo into deep space; and we find out that Crimos share an allergy with the sadly departed Gan – polystyrene rocks!!

In the style of Sesame Street, this rewatch is brought to you by the word ‘TELEPORT’ and the number six (which is the number of toes the offspring of Blake and Inga will have on each foot!!).

I'm going to be on holiday, and am not sorry to be missing this!
The 'Down & Safe' podcast on Hostage was very funny - Latex Gorilla Ducks.
But if Amal thinks it's the worst ever ep of B7, I can't wait to hear what she thinks of 'Voice'...

I'm grown to like Hostage a bit more over the years. It's No 50 out of 52 (ahead of Animals and VTFP) and descends into being a cartoon for its final 10 minutes or so - but it has its moments. For starters, the scene between Servie and Joban, where for once she's not completely in control. And Servie gets a superb line right towards the end: "There's no-one as free as a dead man." I actually quite like most of the episode - it adds a bit to the character of Avon, in that he'll forewarn the Federation... if he actually thinks it's for the greater good.

But the Crimos are weird and seem to belong to another series. And also completely unnecessary, because Travis was left with a crew of Mutoids at the end of Trial.

I believe Jenna referred to her as "Inga the minga" ever after.

I think it would have been better if the stunts had been more believable, the plot tightened up, Inga dressed for a cold climate and less sappy, and that daft bit at the end with Avon insisting Blake leaves him when he's only got a minor arm injury left out, oh and Travis....and the word and....crimmos...Pretty much everything then but I still enjoy watching it with critical brain disconnected.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.
 
Joe Dredd
Ever since someone said to me "RUN AWAYYYYY!!!" during the polystyrene rock scene, like King Arthur says it in Monty Python & the Holy Grail, it's always my first thought when that scene comes on.

But I love Vila's look at the "Oh, marvelous. Kill Blake's old uncle" part. And as ridiculous as it is when Travis the preacher comes to tell him about the Word, MK does a fantastic job at giving us an utterly terrified Vila.

Travis says that he wants to confer
While holding Blake’s kin prisoner
Alas kissin’ cousins leave poor Blake a puzzlin’
Is it cold in here or is it just her?

I will be bowing out of future rewatches due to my Japanese language course taking place at the same time (18:30 to 20:30) until further notice. Tanoshimu!

I think her name went on 'The List,' that Jenna recites every night, rather like Arya Stark.

A reminder that the rewatch of this tale of kissing cousins takes place tonight at 7.45pm tonight.

Blake kisses his cousin. Avon kisses a corpse. Soolin kisses a guy who is 200 years older than her. Dayna is in love with a total creep.

I fear there is something utterly wrong with our heroes ....

Dayna has the excuse of youth.
Soolin the excuse of having been fooled.

Meanwhile Jenna and Cally.... sigh.... The men of Liberator definitely have issues. Or perhaps Jenna and Cally simply have spotted said issues and decided to steer clear. In fact, I think Jenna spots one of those issues at the end of this episode.

Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I am trying to harden myself and watch this ep without the help of a wee dram.
