"Landry's brain has been turned to jelly"

I was putzing about on the web, polishing up my Dragon Con links, when that phrase just filtered over from the TV set. DOCTOR WHO had finished and, ugh, FLASH GORDON was running. That line just made me suddenly think, "General Landry on Stargate SG-1 has had his brain turned to jelly?" Then I started thinking.. mint? grape? strawberry?

Smacks self.

Anyway, I'd look up occasionally and well, did anybody ever watch those old 1950's B&W scifi flicks like "Invasion of the Saucermen" and "The Blob" where the teenagers were running around saving the day, but they were played by folks way past college age?? This is what FG is like. But it's like the 1970s remakes of those 1950s movies, which took campy movies and turned them into crappy movies. The lead character of Flash is running around like one of those teenagers, and even dresses like one. Flash just seems like one of those 1970s remakes where they had a limited budget and cut corners here and there to finish the product. On FG, it's the same. I did see the lead actor of FG in another show, guest spot, and he's capable of a lot better, but with the dialogue they give this guy... well, it's a paycheck. Could be worse. Could be a giant cockroach movie.

But...this is the lead-in to Stargate Atlantis in a few weeks??? Ugh....
