I laughed so hard when Kirk`s tunic was slashed in the fight. A very good episode people. Two thumbs way up.
Ha Ha! That's funny! When I saw that scene, my first thought was OMG, James just destroyed a tunic!! He must have been really commited to that scene to do that!
I watched it on a HD monitor at work then downloaded it to my 30 pin iPod in HD (stupid Apple and their ligthning connector. None of my AV hookups work anymore!) so I could watch it on my TV with my wife.
She's what I call a "tolerant" scifi fan. She'll attend conventions with me, meet the older actors (many of whom she worked with as a little girl on contract to one of the studios but that's another story) and sit through SciFi movies and TV shows. She'll like some but usually appreciates the acting more than the SciFi elements (But honey, it's a classic....).
Well, she sat through Kitumba and I was ready for the critique at the end..... Special effects - excellent! Acting - some plusses and minuses; said James made a very convincing lead but needed to articulate more (sorry James!), and I think she may be crushin on Doc John; Makeup - excellent (except for the Kitumba. And I gotta agree, that hair was just distracting and the turtle shell looked a bit off). wardrobe -really top notch. Other than those minor nits, you guys get two thumbs up from us!! She kept saying, "They made this where and on what budget?! Really?"
Of course when we were done she got a whole discourse on STC's crap, the various actors, the problems with getting this episode together, etc.
Then I dragged up everyone's IMDB pages.
Needles to say, she can hardly wait for the next episode!
(and since I actually worked on that one, she's gonna be in for a long night when it premiers!! LOL!)
