->"Huh. It's a big mansion. It's funny how I only ever see the two of you. It's almost like the studio couldn't afford another X-Man."



->That is my favorite, um, 'common elements' of ''Doctor Who''[=s'=] eighties vision of the fascist future, is the buggies. 'Cause they're studio sets, and they can't do cars. They do them in ''[[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS25E2TheHappinessPatrol}} The Happiness Patrol]]'', as well. It's the iconic transport of 80s ''Doctor Who'' fascists!

->So Kirk, Spock, and [=McCoy=] get taken to the ship's brig, which is just a room where they're preventing from escape by powerful fluorescent light bulbs.\\\
OK, now don't get me wrong, I love practical effects; but really? Are we supposed to believe that those're some kinda [[LaserHallway laser bars]] or somethin'? Fucking ''really?'' You couldn't do some kind of effect here? Jesus Christ, where did all the money in the budget go to, catering for Creator/JamesDoohan?

->The infamous wobbly walls (often mentioned in classic ''Who'' but rarely seen) make an appearance as the Doctor attempts to scale the silo... the floppy tentacled Kroll is one of the most toe-curlingly awful ''Doctor Who'' sequences ever and guess whose [[ObnoxiousInlaws mother-in-law]] was around the last time this story had an airing? "''Doctor Who'' is good I tell you!" I could be heard objecting to her mirth.

->What few actual sets they use are barely serviceable blank walls. There's barely even any furniture! Most of Sheridan's half of the episode is filmed in the middle of a completely black room occupied only with a pair of small chairs, because the Minbari are "minimalists." [[HandWave Uh huh.]]

->True the budget is about half of what the first one was but maybe things have calmed down and they had more time to get the production they truly wanted. They have…''actors'' in this movie so they have that going for them. What director did they get? John Putch? Never heard of him. What has he done? ''Film/AmericanPie Presents: The Book of Love.''\\\
We’re doomed.

->[[Wrestling/TheUndertaker Taker]] and the [[Wrestling/RandyOrton Ortons]] partook in a game of Dueling Mannequins, with each party scaring the other with caskets — caskets occupied by wax dummies so lifelike, you’d swear they were just the real Undertaker…and the real Ortons… Okay, okay, so the dummies really ''were'' simply the Undertaker and the Ortons pretending to be dummies. I just find it depressing that the company’s special effects budget had apparently shrunken since 1996; they couldn’t even afford a Casket Cam in 2005.

->Do yourself a favor and get into these clips from [[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek Lifetime’s]] Creator/BrittanyMurphy biopic. This shit is so low-budget that I think it might be a prank. I was waiting for Creator/JimmyKimmel, no scratch that -- Creator/SethMeyers to walk out. This is Lifetime’s attempt to grab ahold of that ''{{Sharknado}}''-type viral success, right? No one can act, that girl looks not a thing like the much-missed Murphy, and holy shite, THAT WIG ON 'ALICIA SILVERSTONE.' Did someone from ''Film/TheCraft'' cast a curse on that girl? What in hell does she have going on under there that required that on her head? I think it’s still attached to whatever animal died for it. And that animal has peed many times and it’s dried. They [[EpicFail couldn’t afford an actual blonde?]]

->''Series/{{MANTIS}}'' never achieved very much glamor during its single season, even after they started introducing real super-villains. In the end rather than retire from being M.A.N.T.I.S. or have Hawkins reveal his identity, they [[{{McLeaned}} killed the character off.]]\\\

What you see there is the actual death scene of the protagonist, fighting an invisible dinosaur. Other heroes have come to far more ignoble ends, but rarely on network primetime.

->'''David''': This is convenient, because when Superman rescues the train, they can just take a simple [[ChromaKey flying-forward-over-a-greenscreen]] shot and overlay it over [[StockFootage stock traveling-through-subway-tunnel footage]]. Four thousand dollars saved for Globus!\\
'''Chris:''' Also Superman can stop a subway train just by shorting out the third rail, rather than actually physically using his strength so stop it. That’s another five grand!\\

->You know when I used to come through a door in ''Doctor Who'' [[IncomingHam very slowly and peer around]], it wasn't because I ''wanted'' to come through a door like that. If I'd come through a door quickly, the door would've come off in my hand. So one had to stealthily creep around because the sets were very, very delicate.
