Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Tons of fun to unpack here! Seriously? Or am I losing my sense of sarcasm? I'm stoked for Finn v. Phasma. I hope that fight is given time to play out. Why? What significance does either of them have? To me, it's like Sy Snootles vs. Salacious Crumb. I hope that little porg in the Falcon lives, and ...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

I'm waiting to find out the Porg's twist. Everyone thinks of Ewoks as cute but they are vicious. Ewoks had planned to cook and eat Han, Luke and Chewie. I like Ewoks. Porgs look cute and sound a little like turkeys mixed with penguins. Ewoks aren't vicious, they're evil[/i. Between them, those self...

Re: What's the last book you read?

I reread [iAshenden][/i] by W. Somerset Maugham. Hundred-year-old spy stories. I gather there were more, but Maugham was convinced not to publish/destroy them, the implication being that his intelligence service during World War I was not sufficiently fictionalized in them.

Re: Ren from Ran?

Could be, but I thought Disney decided to trash all of Lucas's ideas about the ST and go their own way. They can't completely scrap his ideas, since I would imagine, no matter whether they were worth anything or not, they were rooted in existing saga, which is going to push matters along a given pa...

The X-Files last night, Episode 3.17, if memory serves: "Pusher."

Before that, Doctor Who, 6.13, again if memory serves: "The Wedding of River Song."

Right now, in the other room, to which I must return, Tucker Carlson Tonight.

The X-Files, 2.1, "Little Green Men." This is more what I remember the series being.

Last night, it was Doctor Who, 4.7, "The Unicorn and the Wasp." Notable for the presence of Felicity Jones, and being one of the more tolerable Donna Noble episodes.

Determination, more than speed. The latter also felt true to what we'd seen from Vader before. If you look at the initial several moves of his, its all within a few steps. He sends their blaster bolts back at them, lifts the one guy up to the ceiling. Cuts down another. Then he slices up at the cei...
