Re: Last Television Show Watched

The Walking Dead. Anyone else tuning in these days? It strikes me more as Dead on It's Feet at this point, but last night was a wee bit better than the average for the season.

Re: What can a scientist in my Star Wars fan fic be working on?

Hello! How about this for an idea: The origins of spontaneous graviton bursts from unstable regions of hyperspace associated with neutron stars. Bear in mind, this is high-grade technobabble--i.e., a conglomeration of buzzwords slapped together right off the top of my head. Feel free to use it if yo...

Re: What SW are you looking forward the most 2019?

The poll says "Star Wars Products," so I'm going with the new 8" Darth Vader Black Series Action Figure from Hasbro.

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.

Re: Last Movie Watched

Kong: Skull Island. Not as bad as I was expecting. In fact, more entertaining than The Last Jedi. Much more. Nonsensical, to be sure, but entertaining enough for a diversion while preparing and eating dinner.

Re: What's the last book you read?

Colossus , by D. F. Jones. A moldy oldie from 1966. It never gives any specific date indications in the course of 220+ pages, but hints at events taking place round the turn of the century--that is, the 20th becoming the 21st. It tells the story of a runaway supercomputer--well, two of them really-...

I don't usually laugh during horror movies, but this one was a laugh a minute. The Warrens... Ugh. And the...

Yeah, I was really underwhelmed. After the first, 6-episode event series, I felt done. Sounds like there's no reason for me to jump back in. Not unless you enjoy being bored and wasting your time.

I'm not exactly sure what it was supposed to be--historical novel, horror novel, soporific--but, in the end, it's...

It's readable, and it has its moments, but it could have been cut, tightened, and cleaned of anachronisms.
