SFDebris: Skin of Evil

Main review
Tasha's exit

Again, not one of Chuck's best, but a pretty good one. It makes me wonder whether he's got Tears of the Prophets or Earthshock lined up.

I hope he takes on more Stargate episodes. I would love to hear his take on SGU.

I wonder how much it'd cost to have him do the series premiere of transformers G1..,.

I was never wild about this one. I understand that not everyone gets a heroic death full of meaning and symbolism, that often it's sudden, random, and pointless, but I don't care for that in my fiction. Certainly not like this. At the time I saw this episode it just seemed downright spiteful towards Denise Crosby. Monster of the week permanently killing off a main cast member? Just... no, that's what redshirts are for.

Yeah, pretty random. Also, the mark on her face is pretty damned goofy.

You earned it. :lol:

At the end, he comments how the bit in the beginning is pretty much all Tasha had beyond the mundane. Pretty damned sad, there.

Half way through the first season. I think she was being a premadona. If she stuck it out she would hahve gotten more parts. And I doubt she would be type cast, type cast as what? A background character not sayong anything. Even William Shatner got big TV rolls after trek and he was far far more famos in his roll as Kirk than Tasha.

I dunno, thirteen episodes, almost ten hours of screen time and all she's had to do is give some mundane reports and almost no character building. While I agree that it's unlikely she'd be type cast as anything I don't think it's being too ridiculous to expect your character to had something to do, some development in over five feature length movies worth of run time.
