    I have reached the episode of TNG where Riker attempts to understand the non-gendered species the only way he knows how, by having sex with them.

    Also I've had it playing in the background all day so my 2 year old hums along with the theme song now.

    Doing good work.

    I will say, this first episode of the new season of Discovery does have very chill B and C plots.

    I'm annoyed because now that Paramount plus is a thing here Netflix lost the rights to Disco, but there's no Xbox app here.

    I hate our streaming future.

    I just found out Miami Vice and M*A*S*H are on Hulu so I'm gonna watch some of that. They were my favorite shows as a kid which may have something to do with... me. Just in general.

    I think it's only watchable on Hulu with a Starz subscription.

    A counselor on a starship is actually genius considering what you have to deal with, and has only aged well with modern acceptance around mental health.

    One of the few shining parts of S1 was Geordi taking command and Troi coaching him through supporting the junior officers.

    Picard just wants to help his boy bone down. Plus, it’s like giving an iPad to a cranky toddler, it keeps him occupied.

    When original X-Files was airing, there was a lot of complaint about filler episodes.

    Those people were wrong. Both for complaining about filler episodes, and for believing that the writers actually had a detailed planned-out mythology they were just waiting to reveal to you.

    Fortunately, nowadays most people realize that the mytharc eps are kind of trash and the filler episodes have a lot of the best stuff.

    I actually binged The X Files recently, and yeah the Monster of the Week episodes were definitely the shows strong point.

    The Conspiracy episodes started to feel like this.

    That Hit-Monkey cartoon is on Hulu, and it is definitely taking advantage of the medium to get all kinds of gross.

    The conspiracy episodes before the movie were fine. After that it all unravled and the revoot season even moreso. Though the reboot stand alone stuff was pretty fun.

    Pen15's season two finale (which will be uploaded to Hulu with the back half of the season on Friday) will be the series finale https://www.avclub.com/hulus-pen15-will-not-get-a-third-season-1848135146

    Hulu wants to do more, the creators wanted it to end though. The service is leaving the door open to more episodes if they change their mind in the future

    The creators originally wanted a third season to be the finale, but then COVID happened and made doing a second season more difficult, and they decided this should be the end instead

    The continuation seasons are worth it totally on the strength of Scully and Mulder Meet the Weremonster.

    There are some other great standalones in there too, but that one episode justified all the bullcrap like a season finale so bad they had to retcon it into being a psychic dream that Scully had about a bad future that the new season would work to prevent.

    I’ve rarely felt like a show gets better and better as it goes, but this is one of them. Some of the best casting in the business too!

    I should really give PEN15 another shot. From the ads and the people involved it looked like something I would like, but I was fremdschämening too hard in the first episode.

    Yeppppp. But to their credit, they dropped him pretty quick, AND the writers did a great job making that work and not feel like a decision that they had to work around.

    Discovery is Trek AF. Sure, it's much more serialized than episodic, but that's the general nature of TV these days and it's not like fuckin' DS9 didn't go there first anyway.

    I can get that Picard is much more of a departure from more typical Trek, but it's also supposed to be.

    Anyone who says that Lower Decks isn't Trek hasn't watched the damn show. It's an absolute reverential love letter to TNG/DS9/VOY in particular.


    I'm getting really tired of people who say modern Trek isn't Trek. Most of the time, it's said by people with a very narrow, limited definition of what they think Trek should be, not what Trek actually is.

    Mostly I would agree. Picard is unique in that it depicts the federation as a distopia. That sucks.

    I wouldn't hate a follow-up to TNG that addressed how even a well-intentioned utopia is gonna drop the ball

    Like, a Trek that went, "Hey remember that time when the Federation displaced Indians again because it was the most 'logical' way to follow the rules they made the fuck up for themselves? That kinda sucked, eh?" I mean, I'd be down for that.

    I recognize that nobody else would be, but I'd dig it.

    ds9 is largely this, although as the big war plot takes over this texture often gets overlooked

    the entire federation response to a planet gaining independence (from a fascist regime which starfleet didn't really do dick about) is to absorb them in to the space UN 'for their protection' and to capitalize on a strategic resource that's been unveiled

    so I watched the end of the live-action Cowboy Bebop
    it kinda soured me on the whole show. I was really picking up what it was putting down until the last two episodes.

    there was the boring flashback episode, and they didn't do enough character work to earn Julia's heel turn.

    Ended it on "oh no the band broke up" and then left it annoyingly open for a second season.

    that being said, I am glad Ed showed up.

    And that episode wasn’t even meant to be an X Files episode.

    It was an unaired episode of Night Stalker.

    Nah it’s season 2 and three that are the best. Season four was a bit naff and Sean five was good as was season 1.

    I really liked season four! But I haven't seen five yet

    I mean three is kind of the tops, yeah, for having two huge plotlines that somehow don't feel like they're given short shrift in just 13 episodes, but man I liked the builder stuff in season four

    The Chucky season finale was perfect. Right down to the final scene!
    An epilogue where Chucky is relaxed on a chair in front of a campfire narrating recapping all the kills he got to make this season, and teasing the happy endings (and mysteries left unsolved) may not be over just yet

    Before an episode even aired I was curious how Mancini and Dourif would pull this off but confident that no matter what I'd be excited for the inevitable next film they make after this show. Now I kinda just want to see them make as many seasons as they want because this was a surprisingly astonishing endeavor put to TV screens?! Definitely shouldn't have worked as well as it did, but it never once felt like an accident. Excited for season 2

    I watched the second episode of Banshee, as recent trips to the scale have made it clear that I need to use the treadmill more regularly. I deeply admire this show's commitment to resolving every plot point with an eighth-grade boy's view of what the Coolest and Most Badass Man in the World would do and I'm looking forward to continuing on. I'm employing Omega Level Suspension of Disbelief and don't intend to let any of the 742 things that don't make sense bother me, which seems like the only way you could possible watch this thing.

    Random thoughts:
    -I don't know how sustainable it is for Not Lucas Hood to have sex with a different improbably beautiful woman in every episode and I wonder if and to whom bad things will happen if he doesn't get laid.
    -Again, I would really like someone to just explain the size/layout of Banshee. Is Not Lucas Hood's former lady sneaking down an alley to practice street fighting in Banshee somewhere? Or did she drive to a bigger city? This place is small enough to have a 4 person police department but big enough to have a very urban looking alley for her to sneak into?
    -How is Not Lucas Hood's lady friend's current husband so clueless that she can practice fighting and he isn't aware? Does she miraculously not bruise? We already know that they fuck, he definitely sees her body sometimes.
    -I know this show's edgy and all but I hope they do a little less "is there going to be some sexual assault with high school kids" in the future, I don't need that, nobody needs that.
    -I like how the Bad Guy can just have his dog kill a guy in his yard and nobody else in his house, staff or family, appears to notice or be concerned. He must give out a hell of a Christmas bonus.
    -I really did enjoy the scene where the Bad Guy shows up to basically say "hey Not Lucas Hood, want to be corrupt? I'm running these criminal enterprises and it'd be great if you could go ahead and be corrupt," that was a good scene. Also everything with the former boxer/bartender, that guy's great.
