GOOD GOD MAN! I peed a little.
Eh. As you get older, you get used to that.

The more I see, the more I'm certain this movie doesn't end well. Or even if if does, at least thematically, Cumberbatch leaves behind a mess that will take decades to clean up.
Again, agreed. It may not officially 'cliff-hang', (can you imaging the butthurt of that happening!) but repercussions will endure.

OK...

the whole Harrison/Kirk dialogue exchange of:

has me again considering the theory that some people have that Harrison was one of the "Supermen" on the Botany Bay.
Yeah, me too. I've hated the idea of a Khan rehash but, I gotta say, if this is a Khan rehash then it appears they spared no expense doing a story of Genetically Engineered Supermen capable of World Detonation on the scale it deserved.

The Ad just aired!
Yeah a Khan rehash -- but it wouldn't really be a "TWoK" rehash. TWoK never dealt with the the whole idea of Khan being a genetically engineered 'Superman' who was a world ruler. It only dealt with what happened after that Superman went mad.

Don't get me wrong -- I loved TWok, but it wasn't really a continuation of what I think was the most interesting aspect "Space Seed" -- and that was the idea that this sleeper ship was full of a race of genetically engineered superhumans. TWoK was basically a story of one of those superhumans going mad with rage, and being pratically unrecognizable shell of the Superman he once was.

I would love to see a story explore that more intersting aspect of Space Seed -- and that is idea of a genetically engineered superman loose in the Federation (I mean, one with all of his faculties, and can act on something other than just madness and revenge).
I know. When I say "Khan rehash" I mean 'anything to do with Khan'. You may be getting your wish.

How did it look on TV?
As well as possible for our HDTV to present it, I suppose. It really flew by, not as much time to study the details as is possible with the internet version, which I've viewed multiple times now.
