Today we were given a preview of Star Trek: Discovery’s opening title sequence ahead of tonight’s premiere. And hey— it’s pretty cool! But something immediately felt off about it to me. “Wouldn’t it be cooler, and more ‘Treky’, if the sequence was done over star fields instead of parchment?” I thought. Then the idea…
I wish the Doctor would visit the 17th century more often so I was happy to hear the Eighth Doctor in 1650s England in the 2011 audio play The Witch from the Well. Accompanied once again by Mary Shelley, I was pleased to hear writer Rick Briggs evidently knew his subjects well enough to make an interesting 19th…
NBC’s The Good Place centers around the concept of an afterlife with a Good Place and a Bad Place analogous to Heaven and Hell. Sure it’s just a network TV sitcom but I can’t help consider the theological underpinning of the show. Spoilers through the second season premiere ahead.
How’s everyone doing? I’m super, thanks for asking. Today’s goal for me (and the next few days) is avoiding spending money after having to get new tires on my car yesterday. Those things aren’t cheap.
If only. I mean the Jedi counsel is far from being perfect, but I’m sure they’d be a step up fro the Security Counsel.
Today Meredith once again shows himself as an idiot when it comes to people and then we have a terrible child character episode.
Hey did you know that io9 and Kotaku are having their 2nd Annual Cosplay Ball in 12 days? It is an event that is held in conjunction with New York Comic Con which this year runs October 5-8. It’s the 2nd annual because there was one last year. Here’s the coverage that io9 and Kotaku gave it last year:
There shouldn’t be any mistaking The Orville for a parody now, though I’m sure people still will. Last night’s new episode, “About a Girl”, is the third written by Seth MacFarlane, making that three more episodes written for The Orville than MacFarlane’s written for Family Guy in the past ten years. It presents the…
where IO9 doesn’t GIF anymore.
Ouch! As if I didn’t feel old already. Sunday marks the tenth anniversary of the first regular episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures. Arguably the best spin-off show to burst out of the world of Doctor Who.
“I know, my hair is dark, so I look evil, but I’m wearing white, which is ironic.” And with that, Rebecca Bunch stakes her claim on getting revenge against her ex-fiance Josh Chan. But what else will season three entail aside from this revenge-getting and, of course, stepping on pretzels? What would cause Valencia to…
Good day odeck peeps! I dunno about you, but I’ve had a busy week, and I’m sure it’ll be a busy weekend. Sorry if I never replied to you in the last open thread. I’m a mess, and there’s no excuse for it.
The original Frankenstein will be the Svengoolie movie this Saturday night on Me-TV. Directed by James Whale.
Just FYI, the paperback rights for Carrie went for $400,000, not $4 million, as the article seems to say (though that’s probably a typo). Still, that was a lot of money back in 1973. And $2,500 was nothing to sneeze at, either.
Apple filmed a Russian parathlete calling himself a Russian cyborg.
Actor K.J. Apa who plays Archie in the CW’s Riverdale was in a car wreck last week after a long 16 hour day on-set outside Vancouver, Canada.
Athlete, actor, poet & painter, Bernie Casey passed away Tuesday, at the age of 78.
The Orvill makes it’s jump to Thursday nights and dives right into the fallout from Sunday’s unexpected birth. Bortus and Klyden’s hatchling is the titular girl. Moclans may not be a single sex race after all. Looks like we’re in for a clash of cultures as the crew of the Orville try to convince Bortus that “it’s…
This has probably already been covered here at some point and I missed it but was amazed to find out this morning that The Watcher in the Woods has been remade as a Lifetime movie. On top of that, other than that it stars Angelica Huston as Mrs. Aylwood (and probably a bunch of Canadian folks who we will sort of…
