Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

Finally finished Enterprise. I really enjoyed it and don't understand why it's so maligned.

Outside of both awful versions of the theme song, the only thing I disliked is that they didn't give Archer his big speech at the end.

Friggin Riker ruining two shows.

I hope the rumors of the Mr. Robot creator writing the next spinoff are confirmed here.

What, he has a special, go-to-confrontations-with-traitors cape? (Also, it still looks like it was made from a bedsheet.)

Actually, yes. :laugh:

Although it's for bad weather as opposed to traitor confrontation.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Michael Giacchino's scores for the Star Trek movies really didn't do much for me and when I first read that he was to be the composer for R1, I wasn't too excited, but I must say that Giacchino's piece for the most emotional scene in the movie really is beautiful and effective, like most of his sco...

Re: [TV] Impractical Jokers

I've heard that their live shows are a little odd. I wouldn't say it's odd so much as just not that great. They had an opener from Jersey whose whole shtick was playing into gender stereotypes from the 50s. That set a pretty bad tone with the crowd from the start, and then when the guys came out th...

If my math is right, wouldn't that be almost 40 years since his creation, which theoretically would mean he's physically around 80 at that point correct? As nice an idea as it is that seems like a stretch.

Re: Star Wars Rebels

I truly think the series should end with Vader killing Ezra. There are certainly other endings that could be fulfilling but to end with Vader striking down Ezra and Kaanan would be the truest to the character and most powerful ending possible IMHO. That would lead into Rebels perfectly. The Jedi th...

However, the new A-Wing model can be seen in the shot of the Resistance or New Republic fleet at 1:32 (they are a bit longer in the front than the ones from ROTJ).

I'm on season 3 of Enterprise and boy oh boy am I enjoying it WAY more than I did TNG. When I have a little extra spending money I'm going to grab the model of the NX-01 Refit that never made it into the show.

Would they really give Jason Isaacs, as captain, more of a secondary role?
Sure, why not? Secondary doesn't mean non-existent. Just because the show isn't centered around his exploits doesn't preclude him not being a big part of the happenings.

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

I bet he's going to enjoy the heck out of playing Mudd.

Even despite its stupid delivery system here in the US (The awful CBSInsider service) I'm really looking forward to Discovery. My only hope is that the design of the show skews closer to TOS than Enterprise did.

I've been wanting to see this, as its my favorite animated Disney movie. But I've also worried about it just being live-action replication with nothing new. Is the music the same? That I do hope for. From what I understand there's a new song or two, but otherwise it's the same music. As a counterpo...

Re: What's the Last Comic You Read?

Looks like the last comic I read was Optimus Prime #5. The only books I read regularly any more are the Transformers ones - everything else I wait for trades to go on sale or wait for for them to hit Comixology Unlimited.
