They do?? Are you sure, Joe??

Great....now I'm going to have to start apologizing before I stomp, swat, smash... ... crush...beat up...blow up...fumigate...exterminate, or otherwise obliterate the creepy little things! I hate bugs!!!
Wall, that reminds me of a joke...

But you'll have to go to the adult's only NC-17 section to read it. (The joke itself is not really NC-17, but chances are the responses it draws will be. )

Regards,

Joe

You know, I went into the NC-17 section once a long time ago. I was on another board and heard about this one so I came over, signed up, and "lurked" around so I could report back to everyone...Boy, did I get a shock!!

B+ from me. What on the surface appears to be a silly comical episode actually has some very important character development.

Re: EpDis: Sic Transit Vir

We've seen gradual changes in Vir over time, and it's good to have an episode devoted primarily to his character development. A few comments:

Interesting that a Centauri tells Vir that Londo is trying to protect the government from the truth. The following joke is corny, sure - intentionally so.

A very funny moment is when sinister music and suspenseful camera angles trick the viewers into thinking something dangerous is going on - and then it's bugs! Especially funny in that context - seeing Londo swotting with his sword and shouting "Die!".

Lyndisty is a most interesting character; her pink clothing and high-pitched voice are deceptive, as is her girly conversation. What's behind it is all the more scary because it's sugar-coated. Amusing to see Vir trying to hide behind Londo when introduced to her; he's an idealist in love as well - a radical set of mind in a society of arranged marriages. I guess they don't quite see eye to eye on tokens of love - and what really happens to that Narn?

Interesting too that the motive for murder is not where it was first searched for...

Re: EpDis: Sic Transit Vir

One thing kind of strange, is why or how it can still be such a secret that Centauri males have six "thingees". Humans have been in contact with them for close to 100 years IIRC, so I would think such a thing would be notoriously common knowledge among humans by this point (probably with a lot of weird porn on the market involving it). I mean, all it would take is one human discovering the truth, for everyone to get wind of it, considering how sexual matters so titillate us. Also, the basic anatomy of most species would be known in the exobiology community anyway, and again, such a fact would be certain to become popular knowledge from there given the... nature of it.

So it seemed strange that this knowledge seemed such a secret from outsiders. A Minbari like Lennier maybe ("The Quality of Mercy")--and the scene where Londo tells him is hilarious--but someone like Susan, who's probably heard all sorts of salty jokes in her time (whether she wanted to or not), and at any rate hasn't been sheltered from such (other)worldly knowledge? Yet it seems she never knew this.

(Of course, this is all expositional (pun intended?) knowledge for us, so I guess it's all good (definitely some funny dialog). And it may have actually been pretty common knowledge, just that Susan didn't happen to know it for whatever reason.)

One thing I wondered is how Narns are equipped--G'Kar being the horndog he is for both Centauri and human females (and cuckolding Londo ).

WARNING: This may give you a visual image you'll never be able to scrub from your brain.

Really, I'm warning you...

From the infamous joke version of "The Exercise of Vital Powers":

Quote:
INT. LONDO'S BEDROOM

Londo and G'Kar are in bed together, in the afterglow (we
should be fairly discreet about this).

LONDO
I didn't hurt you did I?

G'KAR
No...no, it was wonderful.

LONDO
I hadn't stopped to realize, this
being your first...I hadn't meant
for all six at once, but as we got
going....

G'KAR
It's all right...don't worry about
it.

LONDO
You realize that people are going
to talk.

G'KAR
Let them.
I warned you...

Trying to think of the Zarg now, so that it fills my consciousness... blotting out all else...
