The Observation Deck as a gathering ground for comments and posts started up eight years ago this week. Although there was no concentrated Observation Deck blog until the Kinja software went live in 2013, #observationdeck had its humble origins way back in the mystical year of 2009.

As with any birthweek, it’s a great time to look on the past, comment on the present, and plan for the future.

Today’s topic, if you choose to discuss it:

What was your favourite science fiction / fantasy experience in the past year?

Of course within your comfort levels of Internet disclosure. Of course.

Author’s answer: I watched Blade Runner 2049, which I felt was a really gorgeous looking (and sounding) film which unfortunately had a script which both worked brilliantly at times and then fell over itself by short-circuiting its own mysteries.
