Re: Star Trek Beyond

A focus on character? There are no characters in this film. Just 1D cardboard cutouts bouncing from soap-opera situations to sitcom level, non-sequitor spewing, ironic, sarcastic jokey scenes.

Re: TNG S4: The Nth Degree

Well said, J J.

It's a guarantee that the mighty federation wasn't built by a bunch of dumb, lazy, pot-smoking hippie liberals sitting around on their ass, waiting for a free-hand out at the tax-payer's expense. Try to take a liberal's free handout away and you'll quickly be called a racist/sexist/bigot and every other name their feeble brain can come up with. Liberalism/progressivism/socialism/communism are the biggest joke ever played on society.

The vast majority of America is not, or ever has been racist, sexist, or any other vile name.

However, the only way a Liberal can feel good about his/her pathetic lifestyle is to put down others an lie about what others believe.

Meanwhile, the rest of us are out building, designing, inventing, creating, and solving all the world's problems. We are the majority, and I've no doubt that we will build a very bright future for everyone going forward.

And don't worry. Darwinism will quickly rid the world of the immoral, bottom-feeding scum where liberals reside.

Re: BSG S2: Downloaded

"If I was a racist, I'd say so."

Really Mikey? Are you claiming racists know they are racist? Might want to re-read your G. Orwell Mikey. Racists rarely self-identify as racist.

"You see immigrants as "brown.""

Obviously my "brown" comment is parodying your racism, Mikey, but this seems to have flown over your head.

"I see them as people."

Animalistic, primitive people Mikey, in need of some good ole fixing? That's sure what your comments read like. How bout them Syrians Mikey...

https://medium.com/@BradRHoff/a-marine-in-syria-d06ff67c203c

They need some civilizing too?

Let me guess, you think Affirmitive Action and Feminism are racist and sexist? The world's a war and true equality is letting everyone feel the burn? Huh Mikey? Social Darwinism! Hoo rah!

"Luckily, I'm not a taxpayer of a country with an extensive welfare system."

Are you sure Mikey? Are you really sure where your tax dollars are going?

"If I was, I'd be out on the streets rioting."

lol, welfare spurs you into a riot-warranting rage, Mikey? Wow. Thank god there aren't a lot of immigrants, muslims and lazy non locals in your country. Gee, that would be a shame. That might call for some rioting!


"And so will you, once you graduate from high school, maybe even college, and join the real world"

You live in the real world Mikey? Could have fooled me. You're straight out of an Ayn Rand cartoon.


"throwing around braggadocio on a sci-fi show's review website."

But Mikey, sweet sweet Mikey, virtually every episode of Star Trek and Galactica I read about on this site has you posting a hilariously psychotic comment, from praising torture to bashing black people. Everyone thinks you're a joke, Mikey. Let me guess: the world's a conspiracy, Mikey? "They" own the media? Are "they" brainwashing us with their twisted "culture", Mikey? You're a persecuted guy, Mikey? People are just too dumb to see how right you are? If only the sheeple would wake up? Huh Mikey?

"though ostensibly designed to promote equality and justice for all, actually entrench a far worse racism than that practiced by some sections of the far Right."

Might want to lay off the Thomas Sowell crack-pipe there Mikey.

Hey Mikey, wake me up when you grow up beyond superficial Left/Right dichotomies and figure out how to run capitalism without unemployment, immigration, monopoly and debt (and so racism, violence, poverty, class-scapegoating and stigmatization). I'll let you get back to bashing brown people, buddy. Wouldn't want you keeping all that hate bottled up. Oh sorry, it's not hate. It's science.

"Now go put some ointment on the burn you just got."

You like burning people Mikey? Burning immigrants, over-breeding blacks and welfare applicants? Hey Mikey, is burning people okay if it leads to useable intel? lol.

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

I watched this again and feel it unfairly gets a bad rep. This is ultimately pop-corn; a low brow adventure with a dollop of soap opera and some high concept action sequences. It's Voyager being Voyager.

Go in with low expectations and it works well I think. That is, aside from those rediculous "shield plates" which the ship acquires.

Re: BSG S2: Downloaded

lol, I saw another episode of Battlestar and was disappointed not to see you spewing rediculous nonsense on the comment section. You let me down Mikey.

"You need to reflect on the values you do selectively espouse, son."

Your comment has nothing to do with my comment Mikey, for no where is anyone stopping or contesting your right to be a moron.

"you have some "anti-austerity" "protest" to attend?"

Are brown people and big bad welfare states ruining your paradise Mikey? It must be hard not knowing whether to shoot immigrants or pat them on the back for cheap labour. lol.

Fingers crossed for Season 3. Hope to see ya nutting ramblings on the comments there.

Re: BSG S2: Downloaded

lol, seriously, Michael why don't you just go marry Nixon. It's disturbing how many uber right wing, ultra-capitalist reactionaries like you are about. You now seemed to have moved on from "animalistic Arabs, blacks and Indians" to "evil college-sociology inspired students" whose "lets get along" ethos you find abhorrent. I shudder to see what you've evolved to in the next episode.

Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

The controversial message of this episode aside, I think we can all agree that DEAR DOCTOR was beautifully directed, scored and featured one of the best depictions of an alien society. Language barriers were intelligently handled, and the alien culture was handled quite gracefully. Note that the alien planet only consists of 2 sets. This minimalist style works much better than elaborate world building, which runs the risk of hokiness.

Re: ENT S1: Silent Enemy

I liked this episode. Finally, really ALIEN ALIENS.

I liked how our inability to KNOW the aliens was mirrored to our inability to KNOW Reed.

This is a excellent episode. Why do we need to see the city? It's dramatically more powerful not to have seen it.

Re: DS9 S7: Chrysalis

The musical sequence and the "we must save the universe!" subplot lift this one for me. I thought it was one of Trek's best romantic episodes, though the ending was weak.

Re: VOY S1: Cathexis

Excellent, tense thriller episode. The only flaw is the way Chakotay "got his soul back". Jammer is way too harsh on Voyager.

Re: TNG S6: A Fistful of Datas

It doesn't make sense that Worf and Troi didn't simply trade the hologram-generated prisoner for Worf's real son. It's just a game. I can understand their being some reluctance on letting an actual real criminal go in real life, but how could you risk your son's life for a fictional prisoner in a game? (And then risk your own life in a shoot out as well) I guess defenders will allege that the program had to played out that way for it to end, or will claim that Worf wanted to set an example for his son?

Re: VOY S1: Prime Factors

Twenty minuts into this episode, and I thought Jammer was nuts giving this episode a high grade. It seemed like a bad Miami Vice episode, with cheesy aliens and locales. And then, almost suddenly, it becomes great. The premise then builds to arguably the greatest scene in Season 1, Tuvok and Janeway eyeing each other emotions that can only be described as wonderfully mixed.

"Wouldn't an incredibly advanced piece of technology like the spatial trajector have made the Sikarians a prime target for any number of militaristic neighbours?"

My understanding is that the technology could only be used around or in their planet. Maybe I am mistaken. But that was my impression.

Re: VOY S1: The Cloud

I'm struck by how much better Voyager's CGI work seems to be when compared to DS9 and TNG in the same period. Did they have larger budgets? I think in the very next episode we then get elaborate CGI asteroid rings.

Re: TNG S1: 11001001

Id give WHERE NO ONE HAS GONE BEFORE a little more points, but otherwise agree. Data Lore and 10101010110 are the best in arguably the weakest season. I might give DATALORE a rewatch based on your review. You make it sound good.
