  1. Weirdly, I am more excited about Graveyard Shift finally coming out than I am about the expanded War of the Worlds.
  2. I loved that book when I was a kid. I might watch this someday for that reason, but it looks pretty bad to me. That heroic symphonic version of "I'll Be There" is embarrassing.
  3. I've got a crisp $100 bill I'd be willing to spend on a DVD box set of a bunch of these shows. Make it happen, somebody.
  4. Yeah, how dare they give an award to one of the most celebrated artists of his century? Baffling.
  5. As far as I know, the only ones I've ever skipped are the recentish Lost In Space and Land of the Giants sets. And I would have bought those if they were solely focused on Williams and therefore cheaper. They didn't add quite enough that I felt like they were worth springing for.
  6. What a disappointing season. You get the chance to make a new show starring Patrick Stewart, and THIS is what you come up with? You ain't got no business making things. And by "you" I refer to Akiva Goldsman, who should never be allowed near a film production of any sort.
  7. Star Trek: Picard is a two-parter stretched into ten parts. And not well.
  8. I'd rather watch either of those episodes than most hours of Discovery or Picard.
  9. All of this makes classic-era Trek seem more miraculous to me. The degradation of his approach began even before Roddenberry died, and it's seemingly almost all the way gone in the modern era. Who will give half a crap about Discovery in thirty years? Nobody. And nobody is going to care about Picard, either, except maybe as a footnote to TNG. On their own merits -- "merits" -- these shows are bland, uninteresting, philosophically bankrupt exercises in IP utilization, and that's about all they are.
  10. I watched TNG from literally the moment it began airing, and this show barely works for me at all. Whatever they're making, they're not making Star Trek, at least not as I think of it.
  11. Not only does it have the profanity, it's got Saw-level graphic violence right at the beginning. Star Trek -- ACTUAL Star Trek, I mean, as opposed to bullshit with a "Star Trek" in the title somewhere -- is apparently dead.
  12. Where can I go to vote "yes" on this? Preferably before the Section 31 show happens?
  13. Nemesis isn't a bad movie, but it is a relentlessly mediocre one; it's no wonder it helped nearly destroy the franchise. The Rise of Skywalker is an abomination. So much so that even though I know better, I voted Goldsmith over Williams on this one, because fuck that movie right into the ground.
  14. I still hate it. It sucked for three seasons and they somehow managed to make it worse for the final four.
  15. Good episode; seems like it's going to be a good series. Too bad they couldn't be bothered to get some good theme music for it. Whose ass did Jeff Russo eat to continue to get these jobs, as mediocre as his work is?
