Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

So, the teaser: YouTube * Billy Dee Williams! :w00t: Never was a big Lando fan, but, with so little of the OT remaining in these nightmare films, I must admit, I was pleased to see him. * Ian McDiarmid! :w00t: I concur, but--you knew it was coming, didn't you?--two things: 1) they're resuscitating ...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

Original airing/new was The Walking Dead 9.18, "The Storm." Two-Word Review: Bore. Ring. One-Word Summary: Snow. Non spoiler critique: Watching a station with no programming, no signal, just static, i.e., "snow," would have been only slightly less entertaining. Everything the episode did could have ...

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

But, then, they never were too worried about that sort of thing in Trek. During the original run there were a great many inconsistencies, and they only had one program to keep track of, which they were making up as they went along. True. And I'll admit, its not a huge issue for me. I have nitpicker...

So, I have my playset with my dark siders on it in my cramped room too close to my bed, and I keep bumping it and knocking figures over. Same thing happens to me at my desk.

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

Though I'm not sure to what degree we can see "period authentic" is really the goal, given the uniforms, technology, Spock stuff (at least through first 4-5 episodes of season 2, haven't seen any since). I think its more do-whatever-we-want. I think you're right. The bridge set in action during the...

Heredity: A Very Short Introduction.

What a useless, steaming pile of ideological nitwittery.

What I was after was a refresher on the mechanics of hereditary in organisms; what I got was a lot of bilge about race, class and gender.

I'm not entirely sure which line is the Vintage (isn't there more than one Hasbro 3.75" line at the moment?), but I think I have that figure in the 6" Black Series. It sounds like the line where they re-release past figures. I don't want to pay $80+ for the previous release, so I'm looking forward ...

The TV stuff doesn't grab me; the prospect of E IX fills me with dread...or revulsion, depending on whether I'm feeling optimistic or pessimistic at the time.
