Re: Seth Macfarlane Should Helm the Next Trek Series

All this is why I just let my imagination run wild when watching modern sci-fi/action movies. I watch at the primal level of simply wanting to enjoy a movie.

As a wannabe CG movie maker, I'll deconstruct the movie later.

Re: Seth Macfarlane Should Helm the Next Trek Series

It can be irritating reading through a 90-day-old thread like this one because I find myself wanting to respond to things that were written eight weeks ago. Commenting on those items now would make me feel like George Costanza, saving up a half-assed retort that only came to him hours after the initial barb.

At any rate, I am personally on board with Seth Macfarlane pushing a new Star Trek series through, should he have both the inclination and opportunity. I respect his overall talent and can't help but notice his fondness/knowledge of the Star Trek franchise.

As Kautilya said, "Me likey a liker of mine likes."

Jerk Store's the line.

TNG style of writing?

Pass.

Sleep inducement is not why I want to watch television.
Not really sure exactly what he means by "TNG style writing", but nearly all prime time weekly series nowadays have a week-to-week style. Something that DS9 started when they introduced The Dominion War.

Week-to-week is more of continuing story rather than each episode being written in such a way that you could watch the episodes in any order.

So, if he means that the episodes are all self contained.. then I'd have to say no to that too.

I can't see anybody ever doing another Star Trek series in which all the episodes were self contained and could be watched in any order. Especially nowadays when you have a variety of online sources to watch weekly series on demand.
