  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.

  9. Jodie Whittaker is the 13th Doctor

    I forgot all about that.
  10. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek?

    Fascinating, yes. Good Star Trek? Who knows. I honestly don't pay much attention to directors or screenwriters when it comes to movies. If the trailers look good, I'm more or less sold.
  11. Star Trek Stardate Collection

    I'd never heard of this collection before. It might be something I want to keep an eye on. $33 is a steal for 10 movies and lots of bonus features.
  12. Voyager theme song (The original long version!)

    Which version? I think there are three.
  13. Jodie Whittaker is the 13th Doctor

    The special was dull as dirt. I always forget everything so much during the long gaps between seasons/series and the Christmas specials. As for the regeneration sequence:
  14. Canadian Star Trek 50th Anniversary Stamps

    Very cool!
  15. Merry Christmas 2017!

    I'm late as well but Merry Christmas! My family still gives me a few Star Trek gifts for Christmas each year. I always get the latest Hallmark ornament from my parents. I also got an Original Series calendar and a pen from the Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds exhibit at MoPOP in Seattle. Also, an early Happy New Year!
