Re: TNG Episode Tier List

Allegiance: C Tier ... There sure are a whole lot of aliens out there who mean no harm but will still kidnap the fuck out of you. Was recently reminded by my YouTube recs of one thing that elevates this episode a bit, which is that at the end Picard forgoes the usual Trek thing of being humbled by ...

Re: Star Wars

Because that's what he called Darth Vader.

...in Episode IV, if you happen to actually be referring to Darth Vader.

Re: Star Wars

I think I have more fun dunking on bad Star Wars than bad Star Trek, but not so much fun that I feel like I need to do it two or three times a year.

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

I'm surprised I haven't heard more bleating out of the biotech research firms about this. I would assume it sucks to invest almost, but not quite a billion dollars into developing a new patent, only to watch it get canceled out as a byproduct of some theocratical spat. Must still be making enough mo...

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Yes, but I suspect they are not, as they say, hurting the right people.

Thad is also correct but I never expected anybody to admit that they'd just noticed that they shot themselves in the foot.

Re: Sonic

At this point in 2022 I would consider an omnibus rerelease of the 16-bit Sonic games that didn't have crippling core issues to be unfaithful to the classics.

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

It's weird to say that Trump's problem was that he wasn't enough of an asshole but that's kind of what it was. Most of the support he lost was on stuff he capitulated on (presumably to keep himself from becoming a complete pariah to the general public), and notably from critically misreading the bas...

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

Sure, but that's a good thing. Whatever reason they've got for picking up the Kool-Aid glass, it's probably going to be a rationally self-interested one and not something stupid like trying to save black fetuses.

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

Being an obvious phony is a feature, not a bug. I don't know why people are still making this mistake all the time. The last person the GOP wants is the kind of principled nitwit who thinks that the same rules should apply to everybody; the fuckwit snitch who thinks Barrett should have had to answer...

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Just considering writing these sweeping laws in the first place requires either a fundamental misunderstanding of the issue, incredible malevolence, or some combination of both. I suspect the biggest misconception on both sides of the issue is that abortions are somewhat uncommon. I also suspect the...

Jesus, though, now I'm thinking about what it would have been like to be a kid watching the premier of Clone Wars in 2008 and then 12 years later it ends on a shot of a mass grave. That is fucking bleak , and I'm speaking as somebody who was 10 when Batman: TAS premiered and 18 when they did that m...

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

I know it's harder to believe given the center's general belligerence but I would say it's going to go the opposite direction in this scenario. The coastal areas are the ones in a position of either accepting a government entity they don't consider legitimate literally laying out a roadmap of highly...

Re: Star Wars

I had the overwhelming impression that the show should have capped off with the ending of Season 5, but I guess that's me.

EDIT: Oh, there's a Season 7 now. I get it. Star Wars is getting as hard to follow as Marvel now, and I'm losing interest for the same reason.

Re: TNG Episode Tier List

The theory goes that the show sucked until Riker grew his beard, but he had his beard in Season 2 and that was a pretty spotty season. To be fair, it was a pretty spotty beard. The scientist is, shockingly, extremely arrogant, shitty, and rude. I don't know what the fuck was up with TNG's writers. ...

Re: TNG Episode Tier List

The Child: F Tier (Bottom) For a while I couldn't decide if The Child or Turnabout Intruder is my least favorite episode of Star Trek ever. Turnabout Intruder is gross, but The Child is gross and pointless. There's no message or theme, an alien just shows up in a gross way and then... leaves. But i...
