What episode is that from? Hannigan looks older than she does now.

Her true love had just been murdered and she's about a split-second away from flaying somebody alive, so, yeah, Willow wasn't exactly looking fresh and perky at that moment.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

I've always liked Alyson Hannigan. Truth be told she was one of the only things I ever liked about Buffy and she tends to be fun, cute and deliver a solid performance in every project she's in. Truth be told, she'd probably make for a good Trek character if the producers would write one for her personality.

S.6, ep.20, looks like.

That's what I thought it was. I figured the "age" had something to do with her facial expression and lighting. It's just I saw that picture literally minutes after watching this week's HIMYM and thought it was a striking contrast.

"In the middle of Star Trek?" Into Darkess is over two and a half months away from its theatrical release. He should be a lot further along than "in the middle."

What the hell have these ass clowns been doing? They spend three years telling everyone the script would be done "by the end of the month," delaying the movie's release date by an entire year, and now two months from release date they're only in the middle?

These jackasses are squandering the Trek franchise. This is why we need a Trek traditionalist back in the fold calling the shots. At least people like Berman and Braga got scripts done on time and never delayed release dates. I guarantee, September 2002 Nemesis was further along than in the middle.
You might want to find a new schtick.
I lol'd.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Perhaps B & B should taken a little longer with the Nemesis script and filming it? I'd have gladly waited until the spring of 2003 if it meant the movie wasn't a thudding, colossal disappointment with more holes than the surface of a moon.

I wish they'd have taken more time with Insurrection. They had a release date locked in before they ever hired Piller to write the thing.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Heck, Robert Wise is on record saying that he wished he'd had more time on TMP, but that movie had a famously brutal and inflexible deadline.

Since when do we want them to rush TREK movies out to hit some arbitrary release date?

Since Braga had nothing to do with Nemesis, there is no "B&B."

That is the traditional way. And those movies were Pure.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Braga's non-involvement with Nemesis notwithstanding, that film was not "pure," unless you mean Pure Grade-A Disappointment.

They had four years since Insurrection to craft something truly special and worthy of the TNG cast. This was their last official on-screen adventure, and that was the best Berman and his people could do?

I'm as fond of the Prime timeline and the Roddenberry and Berman eras as anyone here but that last film was a mess, a mess that helped tank the film franchise for close to a decade.

You still haven't address this "pure" nonsense. It's total bullshit ... or pure bullshit, as it were.

"Tradition" is often just an excuse to keep doing the same damn thing over and over, regardless of whether or not it makes sense.

To heck with tradition.
