"The Aenar" - Enterprise
Preemptive Strike (TNG Blu-ray)
Identity Crisis, one of my least favorite tng episodes. But hell, I even watch those every once in a while.
Just finished watching Message in a bottle
(because of the 'funniest lines' thread in the voyager forum )
I'd forgotten how scrappy Chekov's girlfriend was in a fight. Was she supposed to be a security officer?
Shadow Play, a slightly above average DS9 episode.
Even bad Star Trek beats anything else on TV.
Case in point, I'm almost done with a re-watch of all 12 movies. Today was 2009. I will always prefer Shatner, Nimoy and Kelley to Pine, Quinto, and Urban, but again, even lesser Star Trek is better than anything else.
Even bad sex is better than no sex at all!
I watched Life Line today, probably one of the top five best Voyager episodes!
The film Generations (OK, the worst part is that Picard and Kirk's fantasies are so underwhelming and they walk away from them so easily)
Where No Man Has Gone Before (TOS Blu-ray)
True, Picard's looked like a cliché from the fifties... And Kirk's well, just a cliché.
Emergence (TNG Blu-ray)
Last night I decided I've avoided The Way to Eden long enough.
Not a bad episode at all, really, but, as a fan of real hippie music, the faux hippie music was almost unbearable.
Not to mention that real hippies are peaceful and benign. These ones were really nasty.
"These Are the Voyages..." (ENT Blu-ray). Oh, Lord....
... why hast thou forsaken me...
Star Trek Into Darkness, concluding my re-watch of the movies.
There is one aspect of this movie that annoyed me, that I either didn't notice or forgot about the last time I watched it (which was September 2013, when the DVD came out). That is, I found myself having to rewind the movie every few seconds to play scenes again because the characters talked so fast, I missed what they said the first time. Everybody talks so damned fast in this film, they actually made William Shatner seem like a snail in comparison. I also tried watching the movie with the closed captioning on, hoping that would help. It didn't. I still had to rewind ALL THE TIME.
Maybe you played it at fast speed. I once watched a movie and found that I had a hard time following the plot. Turns out I was watching it a 150 percent of the normal speed.
