->''"I've found the whole "fake geek girl" thing alternately interesting and depressing, so there's a quest about it in Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. It's called 'Fake Geek Guy,' because my writing is about as subtle as a sledgehammer. To the face. Of your grandmother."''

->''"A particular trademark of the [[VerySpecialEpisode VSE]] is that it can't be trusted to deal with substance abuse issues without turning into a hysterical, hand-flapping PSA, like those after school specials where a straight-A bookworm takes one whiff of second-hand pot smoke and immediately joins a murderous biker gang before launching themselves from the highest building in the city, because they can flyyyyy! More of a warning campaign to the nation's youth than an actual plot device for the characters to explore, these episodes speak with [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle old men's voices from teenage mouths]], trying to impart the notion on a young audience that kids would turn their backs on someone who smoked a cigarette or offered a beer at a party, because that's just the uncoolest thing ever, dude."''

->''"...Chris Carter is not a subtle writer. While he is a phenomenal producer, a great ideas man and a wonderful director, Carter’s writing can occasionally seem just a little bit too heavy-handed. ''{{Series/Millennium}}'' features a character bluntly confronting all the darkness in the world, called [[PropheticName Frank Black]]. He retreats from the darkness into a big yellow house. The dialogue can occasionally be a bit on the nose, particularly when Frank explains his visions to Beltcher. ''“It’s my gift. It’s my '''[[BlessedWithSuck curse]]'''.”'' It’s no wonder that ''Series/MadTV'' chose to parody that line for ''[[Series/SuddenlySusan Suddenly Millennium]]''."'' -->--'''[[http://them0vieblog.com/2015/02/05/millennium-pilot-review/ Darren Mooney]]''' ->''"Finding the word ''[[AC:Torchwood]]'' smeared in blood on the wall by a pair of corpses with their throats slit is a gruesomely memorable image but all the pomp and circumstance around it blunts the impact.
