  1. The Sir Patrick Stewart Topic

    Nice Panamera too.
  2. The Tardigrade with its spores raised a Dune memory of the navigators and their spice. Nice homage if intentional,. very serendipitous if not.
  3. The Orville

    Just watched Pria and was disappointed. It was terribly derivative and cliché ridden. Introduction of teleportation by Pria affirms that it doesn't exist in the Orville universe.
  4. CBS All Access

    And as the oldest SOB in the house, me three.
  5. Most disappointing Enterprise episode

    I know I'm the contrarian here but I enjoy everything about A Night In Sickbay. It is so far outside the regular storyline box that I take it as a wildly funny character study as if it took place in a dream state.
  6. The Orville

    S1, E4 If the Stars Should Appear Another worthy episode slightly marred by silly sexual banter. They discover a monster spaceship reminiscent in concept of Clarke's Rama with a civilization living inside believing it is the entire universe. Resolved too easily but still, an interesting effort. I'll keep watching.
  7. Hello from CA

    You've got a lot of CA neighbors here including Sehlat and me. Invite us over for wine & cheese, OK.
  8. The Orville

    Agreed. The very timely subject of gender identity/modification done with a good story and some very powerful acting. There was a bit of sophomoric humorearly in the ep but the meat of it was really solid.
  9. Cheap bastard that I am, I signed up for All Access last night. Definitely will be watching tonight.
  10. The Orville

    An article from Comicbook outlining some Star Trek Easter Eggs in The Orville. There's a promotional video on the page but strangely, it has no sound. http://comicbook.com/startrek/2017/09/12/the-orville-star-trek-easter-eggs/
  11. The Orville

    I even groaned out loud at that (and I was alone last night). So many shallow pokes at TOS/TNG moments that I wish I'd kept a list.
  12. The Orville

    Ummmmm... If someone has never seen Star Trek, or any other SF TV for that matter, The Orville might be more fun. Plus + They have seat belts. Minuses- Almost every other derivative moment - AND - a penis joke in the first 6 minutes. I'm not a fan of Seth McFarlane so IO was expecting his level of sophomoric humor but the plot(?) was so lacking in originality that it was painful. I've got it set to DVR and I'll give it another couple of tries but I don't anticipate a long term relationship.
  13. The Maybe-Im-Willing-to-Give-Enterprise-a-Second-Look Thread

    I fully understand the enthusiasm many have for Season 4 and its more TOS/TNG feel. Manny Coto brought a fresh, new shine to the show. That said, none of the season 4 characters are anywhere near the people we meet in season 1. As soon as I finish my re-watch of Babylon 5, ENT is next in line and trust me, I won's be skipping any of the episodes and will sing along with Faith of the Heart every damn time.
  14. The Maybe-Im-Willing-to-Give-Enterprise-a-Second-Look Thread

    I strongly disagree with starting at season 4. Yes, there are some of the best of ENT there, but you miss all of the growth in both the story arc and character development. Going back to S1 after completing S4 would short-change the whole story.
  15. The Maybe-Im-Willing-to-Give-Enterprise-a-Second-Look Thread

    ENT is my @2 favorite series, slightly behind TNG. The canon issues people raise are irrelevant to enjoying the great sense of discovery and extreme character development that mark the show. There are some silly episodes (Two Days and Two Nights), some emotionally moving episodes (like Carbon Creek) and some important ones (like the controversial Dear Doctor and Sim). Watch it with an open mind, or as Trip says, "Challenge your preconceptions or they will challenge you."
