Re: The Star Trek Thread

Discovery's sorta turned into Johnny Quest, and while that's not great, I'm a firm believer that one should always take the work on what it's aiming to achieve, and it's definitely interested in making this be a Star Warsy adventure in the vein of like, National Treasure. I'm never gonna get used to...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

It makes it all the worse for Discovery, because it shows that they always could light a scene in a halfway decent way, but chose not to, and continued not to until the got the ship upgrade in S3.

Re: TV Series On The Television

At the recommendation of a random dude on a Discord server I frequent, I started watching The Tourist , which is about a guy who wakes up in the Australian outback with no memory, with a few people trying to kill him. Pretty Bourne Identity-ey. I think overall I really enjoy the cast, but the writin...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

(Going to post my impressions for the latest few Disco eps if there are no objections) Face the Strange Pretty watchable time travel ep where they do a tour of the previous Star Trek Discovery season finales. This really banked on us having a lot of affection for killed-off characters that only ever...

Re: X-Men

X97 is on such a roll right now. Tolerance is Extinction pts 1 & 2 have been absolute bangers.

The pace of this thing continues to be absolutely wild, blasting through 20 comics an ep, every ep.

This latest ep of X97, “Bright Eyes”, was an absolute banger. This show’s been on a hot streak recently.

Re: The Star Trek Thread

Yeah, sucks about LD. I've always hoped it would get more into a storyline, and it felt it was going in that direction, but yeah with this being the last season they'll be too focused on wrapping things up to take any risks.

Ah well, good show.

Re: (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Animes

It's really been a joy. My nephew and I have been reading the manga together and are close to done, and the show really has been doing a great job capturing the fun of the series, while keeping it "realistic" in terms of the biology and the cooking. The ep after the dragon where they resur...

Re: (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Animes

Finished Somali and the Forest Spirit, it's a nice and pleasant show. Good vibes. I liked it! Probably due to it only getting one season, it ultimately doesn’t really amount to anything, and while it’s got a good source of drama, none of it coheres to where you might be emotionally affected by it.

Re: TV Series On The Television

The CG is surprisingly not bad, since it's all underwater? All they had to model was the Seaquest, the little drones that buzz around it, their shuttle submersible, and a regular-ass submarine. Against the dark and shit-filled deep-sea water, it looks decent.

Re: TV Series On The Television

On a similar note I started watching Seaquest again out of some vague impulse to see how it compared to my memory. It is very not good, but in season 1, there are sometimes moments where the great lead (Roy Schnider) and the socio-political setting where they're mining the ocean floor come together ...

I've been enjoying the manga too, every time I finish a volume I'll give it to my teenage nephew, for whom this is his first series. That kid loves him some Delicious in Dungeon.

Really loved Master of the Universe: Revolution. Wraps up the He-Man mythos in a nice way, and understands what's fun and weird about this world and these characters.

I've been playing a Star Trek Adventures ttrpg game with an Achewood group every other Saturday, and I gotta say, Star Trek does not make for the best fit for an improv adventure. Turns out, being in Star Trek is essentially just being at work. Everyone is in their own specific room for their specif...

Re: TV Series On The Television

Latest season of For All Mankind just sorta kept on the trajectory the show’s been on since season 3, adding more and more soap opera bullshit, and less and less alt history stuff. I appreciated the attempt at a company town/exploited labor/unionizing storyline, it’s just like, shit, I wish it wasn’...
