  1. Today
  2. Star Trek on Amazon Prime

    I guess this is why the producers of Discovery decided on such an action packed format for their season 1. They didn't want audiences to get bored. And even if later seasons of Discovery picked up the pace, it would be difficult to entice the audience back after a poor impression with a 'boring' season 1.
  3. DS9 - Homefront - What was Sisko's father going to say?

    Haha! Yes! True dat
  4. Star Trek on Amazon Prime

    Apparently the Star Trek series are still streaming on Netflix in the United States. I could've sworn they were removed. Maybe they returned. Anyway, because I haven't seen so many episodes from the first three seasons of DS9, I'm hopeful even if they're slow or dull, the fact that they're new Trek will keep me invested until the introduction of the Dominion.
  5. "...is death and taxes"?
  6. Last week
  7. In DS9 Homefront, Sisko's father refuses to undergo a blood screening to prove his not a changeling. He says that you can only do so much to protect yourself and just before he collapses, he says: "The only thing, you can count on in this life..." And I am left wondering, what was he going to say?
  8. 2018 Winter Olympics

    This time not. Given that it's in South Korea the viewing hours are very bad for us Europeans. The games are afoot when I'm in bed...

  10. 2018 Winter Olympics

    I only watch it on my lunch breaks when they got the recaps on
  11. Star Trek: Discovery

    Non-Spoilered: Overall, I liked it. It's not episodic like previous trek, but it was in a serial format. I like that kind of storytelling, it makes me want to come back for more, to find out what happens next. There were a couple obvious WTF moments when they play loose with Star Trek canon, but there were also a number of 'nods' and 'fan service' moments added here and there. One nitpick: I feel like they originally ment for the season to end on Episode 13, the arc that they were telling ties up nicely with an appropriate cliffhanger for the next season to explore. And then they went and added two more episodes to the end and quickly (And i mean quickly, literally the intro of the very next episode basically underwrites the cliffhanger they set up) tie up all the plot threads from that cliffhanger and a couple from earlier episodes. I feel the last two episodes were the weakest of the season personally. I think they might not have been part of Brian Fuller's original vision for the story and may have been added on after he left, and that may be why i felt like they were so dis-jointed (IMO).
  12. 2018 Winter Olympics

    I'm watching as much NBCSN coverage as possible. It's better than the prime time NBC coverage but still not great
  13. 2018 Winter Olympics

    It's typical NBC Olympics coverage, at least in prime time. I've seen some NBCSN coverage that spends more time with the events and less time on backstory if your programming provider carries it.
  14. Star Trek: Discovery

    So did anyone make it through to the S1 finale? I imagine I'll binge the entire season at some point, but I'm hoping someone will stumble by and give some relatively spoiler-free impressions of the series so far.
  15. Star Trek on Amazon Prime

    Good to know. I tried re-watching S1 of DS9 a few years back, but I couldn't do it. Maybe I should have jumped to the S1 closer and continued with S2. I don't think I've watched more than a handful of Voyager episodes since their first run, either.
  16. Star Trek on Amazon Prime

    I discovered the other day that the live action Star Trek TV series are all streaming on Amazon Prime Video (in the United States). They previously streamed on Netflix. I could've sworn when the shows left Netflix it was because they were becoming exclusive to CBS All Access so it was a pleasant surprise to learn I can watch them through Amazon Prime. I'm tempted to rewatch Deep Space Nine. I've actually never seen many early episodes. But it's a huge time commitment. I'm also concerned I'll be bored by the first few seasons before the introduction of the Dominion. So maybe I'll rewatch Voyager instead. Thoughts?
  17. 2018 Winter Olympics

    Anyone watching the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Here in the States, NBC's coverage has been abysmal. Far too many fluff pieces about the athletes and not enough competition. I also hate how games/matches I'm recorded in the middle of the night are spoiled during early live coverage during the day before I've had a chance to watch them.
  18. Star Trek: Discovery

    All I see is the titles for review articles. They seem positive. I don't know anyone offline who watches, and there hasn't been much reaction here lately, so I'll be interested to see if you get any informed opinions.
  19. Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    A little of A, a little of B. If there was more chatter here, I'm sure you'd have remembered better.
  20. Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I never got around to posting more of my thoughts and now I've forgotten whatever I was going to write. Is that a reflection on the movie and the lack of impact it left on me? Or a reflection of my limited attention span these days?
  21. 2017 Movie Megathread

    I managed to see Justice League in theaters and enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would given the reaction online. It was much better than Batman vs. Superman. Steppenwolf was a dumb villain. I say that as someone who doesn't know anything about the character in the comics.
  22. Star Trek: Discovery

    I still haven't decided if I'm going to sign up for CBS All Access and try to binge watch Discovery during the free trial. I've been avoiding spoilers--successfully--so I don't know what the reaction has been like. Are people still enjoying it?
  23. 2018 Movie Megathread

    I'm less interested in Blank Panther than most Marvel movies because the trailers are indecipherable. I have no idea what this movie is about or who the bad guys are. I'll still see it, but the marketing isn't exciting me at all. I saw the first Pacific Rim on Netflix a few years ago. I enjoyed it. The trailers for the sequel make it look less like Pacific Rim and more like a Transformers movie.
  24. I can't believe I actually had a theory with merit! (After watching Episode 12, it's revealed that Lorca is actually from the MU!)
  25. 2017 Movie Megathread

    I finally saw Justice League last night. I didn't hate it. On the plus side, no one went on a murderous rampage through the heart of a major metropolis, so I don't have to call it the DC Extended Murder-verse this time around. There was a smattering of humor. Not all of the supers hated having powers. Glimmers of hope were here and there. The inclusion of the Green Lanterns in Steppenwolf's backstory raises the question of where sector 2814's GL is in the middle of all of this. There's a group of people out there that want to see Zach Snyder's original cut, without Joss Whedon's reshoots, released, even though no such cut was ever completed. I'd be much more interested in seeing what we'd have gotten if Joss Whedon had been in charge from the beginning. There's another major shakeup underway at DC/WB in the wake of Justice League, so there's no use in trying to use it as an indicator of what's to come for the DCEU.
  26. 2018 Movie Megathread

    Honestly, I'm a bit skeptical of the new Pacific Rim. LOVED the first one, but the trailer I saw for the new movie just threw me off, it doesn't look nearly as gritty or dark as the first one, and that's what really drew me in to the first movie.
  27. Canadian Star Trek 50th Anniversary Stamps

    My mom saved me a couple when she received a couple letters with them on it, they're pretty awesome!
