  1. We're celebrating 100 years of Finnish independence.

      I wish my country had a fraction of Finnish common sense right now.

    However did I miss this? Congrats and good luck! Parenthood is the greatest adventure offered us ordinary humans. The greatest part of it is, I think, discovering the unique qualities of each individual person and their likes and dislikes. Some children show a marked preference for things very early. How are you doing now that you've been a parent for about six months?
  3. STAR TREK CONTINUES - The Final Episode Online

    A wonderful finale, but I'll really miss this show. I think that this finale beat all but a handful of TOS episodes in my book. Admittedly I need a rewatch, but I think the final two parter was more poignant than any TOS episode, with the sole exception of The City on the Edge of Forever.
  4. What was the last non-Trek tv show you watched?

    Binge watched GoT, so we've already started on the 5th season. At this rate, we're done before December starts, never mind Christmas...
  5. Rate the show in order of preference

    DS9: I was a fan of serial shows before they became a "thing". One of my favorites is Babylon 5, although nowadays I mostly watch it for the mid-90s nostalgia. I confess that one of the reasons why I love DS9 so much is its similarity to B5. I don't mind staying in one place, as it just means a larger recurring supporting cast. Strong, if not always likable characters with actual character development. Bashir was a very different man in season 7 than he was in season 1. TNG: This is the show I really grew up on although I remember watching TOS in reruns in the mid-80s. The ugly beige decor bothers me a bit, because the poor Enterprise looks like a cheap hotel that got its last redecoration in the 80s. Still, the show features interesting characters and great stories. ENT: This is IMO the most uneven of the shows. It has great episodes and almost unwatchable ones, but the wonderful 4th season makes the effort worth while. TOS: This one started it all, but the overt misogynistic 60s attitudes make the show hard to watch at times. That said, it's a product of its time and manages to tell quite a number of great stories, so I guess I'll forgive the clunkers (Turnabout Intruder, Spock's Brain, Space Seed). That said, I'm a huge fan of STC, which feels like a genuine continuation of the original. VOY: While this show has a few gems, I have to sift through a lot of rubbish to find them. My biggest gripe with the show is that it seems like such a huge step backwards after DS9, even if there was a lot of potential. They couldn't run to the nearest Starfleet base when they got into trouble but had to make it on their own, the conflict with the Maquis was resolved far too quickly, or rather it wasn't, they were just integrated into the command structure and everything went smoothly after that. The characters are bland and uninteresting for the most part, Janeway is poorly written, which is a shame because her character could have been great. Too much use of the big red reboot button. And Seven completely ruined the Borg as villains for me. I wonder how DSC stacks up against these... I guess what I'm hoping for is something akin to Battlestar Galactica, where all actions have consequences, only with a lot more optimism for the future. After all, if it's all doom and gloom, it can't be Star Trek...
  6. I got the coolest mom

  7. What was the last non-Trek tv show you watched?

    GoT. We've already started on season 4...
  8. STAR TREK CONTINUES - “To Boldly Go: Part 1”

    Great episode, loved it. I'm happy we don't have all that long to wait for the conclusion, but man, I would have loved to see a few more episodes...
  9. STAR TREK CONTINUES - “To Boldly Go: Part 1”

    Saw it last night and it was brilliant. Wonderful script and great acting. Looking forward to pt. 2.
  10. I enjoyed the original very much, even the panned middle episodes of the second season. So far, I've seen the first five episodes of the third season and my feelings are mixed to say the least. Lynch is a genius in my book, but sometimes the line between genius and crazy is very thin indeed. In the early episodes at least they spend far too much time away from the town of Twin Peaks. Kyle MacLachlan is proving to be an amazing actor, although his scenes as Dougie Jones make me squirm in my seat. I just want Cooper to be as he was before the Black Lodge...
  11. What non-trek movies have you watched lately?

    I want to see it again, but I'll wait for the blu-ray. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the soundtrack, which was much too discordant for my taste. I love the Vangelis soundtrack of the original.
  12. What non-trek movies have you watched lately?

    Blade Runner 2049. Amazing movie and a worthy sequel to the original. I actually enjoyed this one more than the original.
  13. What was the last non-Trek tv show you watched?

    We've been watching Twin Peaks: The Return on HBO Nordic. It's good, but so weird that I need a drink or two to watch it. Last week we also started on GoT. My husband has been wanting to watch it for quite some time already, while I've been less than enthusiastic. The first episode was good, and not as graphic as I'd feared. Very angsty, though, so it's best enjoyed in small doses.
  14. Happy 94th to one of the "Hidden Figures."

    Happy Birthday! I'm just so happy she's around to enjoy the public acknowledgment of her work.
  15. Phew, it's great to be back!
