saga's disgusting fleshy eye begs to differ.
I agree with this 100%. It's what's making it harder to interact with the "other side" now. Before I had no problem, even if I didn't see eye-to-eye with someone else. But now? Forget it. I have no problem with someone coming to a different conclusion than I did. But I do mind people looking for faults just to find faults. They're so busy trying to find something wrong with what they're watching that they're missing out on everything else. So when I bring up anything else, it's lost on them. They can't see it because they have tunnel vision. They're literally just out there looking for what's wrong and nothing else.
It's like Bruce Lee said, "Concentrate on the finger and you'll miss out on all the heavenly glory."
Ah, such a nice, relatively quiet Thursday in the forum...
It only just occurred to me, but a perfect April Fools gag yesterday would have been to post an Episode 11 thread.
(Yeah, too late, don't try it.)
We're still waiting on the unreleased episode of ENT("The Interregnum").
It was not unreleased. I saw it.
I own the Director's Cut complete with commentary.
Didn't Brian Brophy direct that one?
Direct it? He WROTE it!
And played every part. Even in the sex scene.
First Thursday without a new Picard. How's everyone holding up?
I kinda miss it.
I'd probably be holding up better if not for this stupid... "situation" we're all dealing with... I was bored out of my mind, but now it's turned into utter lethargy. A new episode would've broken that up a bit.
I'll trade this stomach virus for everyone's boredom.
Time for an ENT episode rewatch. First up: "Shuttlepod One."
Always a good choice.
That's why I am a huge advocate for something screenwriter Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) calls Positive Moviegoing (which I extend to TV as well:
I try to always go in to new episodes or movies wanting to enjoy them, and accepting what they tell me for 20 minutes or so. I mean, the things we love from our youths fall apart if you look at them too closely: Back To The Future, a movie with a teenage boy befriended by a man in his 60s or 70s who goes back in time and almost screws his Mom. The world of Star Trek with its James R Kirks and whether or not they are a military or have money. So now I go in expecting and trying to enjoy something. Because at the end of the day, that's why I watch things: to enjoy them. It's not that I don't see the flaws that people point out, it's that I don't let them ruin the OTHER good things, I enjoy them ANYWAY. That's my rant, anyway.
I don't understand people who would hate-watch an entire TV series from start to finish, especially one in particular we had on this board for Enterprise. I suppose it's one thing to watch a 2-hour movie that you know is going to be bad and make fun of it, but 98 episodes?!?!?!?! Especially if you've already made up your mind that you're not going to like it before it even airs.
It can be fun. I started watching Jericho cause I thought it would be neat but it was totally lame so I continued on hate-watching and snarking on it online and that was even more fun.
I wouldn't have gone on forever though. If something is bad, I usually tune out either in the first season or I don't come back for the next.
I was listening to the latest deadpool podcasts, which was a bit tedious because the host is getting on my nerves, but anyway, his guests are SPS and Goldsman. And I think that Goldsman bascially confirms that if all goes well, there will be 3 seasons of Picard. He talks about the ending of ep 10, about "putting our money where our heart is,", which could mean killing Picard. But that would have been pretty dumb wen they "had" him for three years... Interesting!
