MONDO EXTRAS

Dune Part Two: Muad’Dib

Now Paul and Chani are sitting in the desert. She explains the relationship between worms and the Spice, which is basically a by-product of the worm's reproductive cycle. Again, it's a much more concise explanation than Herbert gave us. She leads Paul into the tent.

They mack, Dune-style. Incidentally, I know we're on cable here, but I spotted a nipple in that scene. Also, Barbora Kodetova is my new girlfriend.

Paul dreams that he's talking to the FremRevMo. She tells him to be careful of putting politics and religion in the same cart. We also get the first mention of the Kwisatz Haderach. That groan you just heard was my poor spell-checker collapsing into an exhausted ruin. Or maybe it was me watching the crappy dream-sequence effects. Anyway, Chani wakes up and they hug.

Commercial. That Bruce Campbell Evil Dead hedge-cutter commercial is the funniest thing I've ever seen. Including the RevMo's hats.

We come back to see Paul teaching the Weirding Way. He dodges a couple of attackers with his funky Flash moves. Suddenly, some scary-looking strangers enter, led by Otheym. They sign up for Weirding classes. The Administration Office sends them to the Bursar for a stamp and then to get the Dean's signature on their schedule forms. Finally, Paul agrees to let them in. We see Stilgar realizing that Paul is in charge now.

On Geidi Prague, Irulan is watching Fey fight as she chats with the Baron and Count Fenring. There's lots of crazy tilted camera angles that remind me of Battlefield Earth. And I thought they were in trouble when they started ripping off Supernova. For the record, as the novels go, Dune doesn't even deserve to be on the same bookshelf as Battlefield Earth. At least Herbert confined his bizarre religious theories to the books. Fey wins his fight (again, it's a tease of great scene from the book) and then calls his next shot by pointing up to Irulan.

At Sietch Tabr, Stilgar exposits that the Harkonnens are getting closer. They'll have to move. Jessica and the FremRevMo are present, and they exchange ominous looks. FremRevMo says there's no turning back now.

Two hairy fat guys and their hairy, fat turbans are filling a pool with water. Why does nobody in this mini-series look like they've spent even a single night in the desert? Oh, yeah -- they're in Eastern Europe. I forgot. They drown a cheesy animatronic baby worm, and Chani enters to collect the worm's bile as it barfs up the water. Accurate to the book, but gross anyway. Chani, who's now wearing Allen Iverson-style cornrows, echoes my thoughts from every recap I've ever written: "May Shai-Hulud have mercy on us all."
