You mean you don't post on threads for TV shows you claim to not like and find boring? How novel.
I spend hours every day online leaving nasty comments about the Spy Kids movies, and how much I hate them, how bad they are, and insulting people who like them.
It gives me time to watch more shows that I like too. Trying to convince people they're wrong about liking a show wastes so much time.
They cast Ricardo Montalban. How bad could they be?
Well I liked the first season of a lot of the shows I thought got better; the fact they get better doesn't mean they are disappointing in season 1. In fact, I loved season one of OITNB (for example), and it was only in rewatching years later that I found it so lacking compared to what came later. The same was true of TNG back in the day. Now I've enjoyed Discovery season 1, I maintain it was better for me than TNG, ENT or VOY season 1, and I still anticipate hopefully looking back on it in years to come as the weakest season of this show.
Aside from "Discovery", all of the other leads are the Captains. So, this whole idea that we're expected to choose between Kirk and Picard on who was the best is meaningless to me.
That doesn't change what the thread was about.
Yeah, but Stargate SG-1 is no longer making new shows.
That was you!? That hurts...
Don’t get me started. The main girl is a total Mary Sue. They’ve gotten way too violent and dark and gritty, at this point, Catch That Kid is more Spy Kids than Spy Kids!
I also heard the Spy Kids cartoon is already cancelled and being replaced with a new series by Nicholas Meyer.
So Ricardo is Spy Kids' Jason Isaacs?
Star Trek doesn't so much do characters at this point as they generate game avatars.
The more comments I read about "Discovery", the more pathetic the Trek fandom seems to me. I had no idea that the franchise fandom has come down to clinging to the familiar . . . to the point of making irrelevant criticism about something new that don't have any real value.
Felicia Day as Colt?
The idea that video game avatars don't stand for developed characters in the same way a headshot of an actor can be used to portray a well written character tends to betray a certain vacuity on modern entertainment forms.
To be fair, the cake is a lie.
The biggest reason is that people become locked into a dogmatic view of what "REAL STAR TREK IS".
The most diverse franchise in the history of live-action entertainment, and a fan base that prides itself in intelligent, diverse thinking....and yet fans love to declare what the brand IS and IS NOT, locking it into a narrow, stale little box...and there you have it. Instant animosity and disappointment any time the definition isn't met.
