    Well It's kinda like the GI Joe safety report things where random people edited those to be rediculously halarious which was retarded in the first place.

    So watching S_O and Jan's brilliant Next Generation edits has gotten me vaguely interested in Star Trek. I mean, I've tried watching individual episodes of TNG and some of the other shows in the past, but it's always seemed generally really dull, and always made me feel like I was missing whatever the big picture was needed to made the whole thing interesting.

    Now it looks like CBS has the original series up on online. Is any of it going to do anything to enlighten me to what the hubbub is all about? Or is it just going to make me think the whole thing is really dumb?

    The original series is, more or less, quite shitty. There's basically a lot of shittyness in star trek, but when it's good it can be pretty amazing.

    I think OS Star Trek is awesome! But I do like silly things and I am a fan of Shatner, so...

    Next Gen has some great episodes in there with the sometimes dull ones. The one where the enterprise is taken over by terrorists and Picard pretends to be the ship's barber and is running round killing people with a crossbow is 'Under Siege' as fuck!!

    Everything past Next Gen is pretty meh... Voyager is bloody horrible, I only need to hear that woman captain's voice and I go into an immediate murdarizing rage.

    Basically Picard and Shatner are good.

    DS9 is amazing though, Grenn, despite its first two seasons.

    I'd heard about an episode of DS9 I hadn't seen called The Visitor. I just watched it. Let me just say that there were tears. Possibly heaving sobs. Voyager is a bit of fun, but yes, also full of shittyness.

    There were like 24 episodes a season. About 7 or 8 would be amazing. 7 or 8 would be entertaining enough. And 7 or 8 would be piss boring.

    No.

    A friend whose opinion on TV I generally trust has begun a campaign to convince me that it's good, but I don't believe her and I think she's just trying to troll me. I can't believe the show is actually any good, but she was right about 30 Rock and Always Sunny.

    What are you basing your judgment on? I mean, the disbelief that it could be good. What information are you using to form your opinion?

    My own petty insecurities.

    I really have little to go on other than:

    a) I find almost any network sitcom to be banal and boring
    b) Every snippet of BBT that I've ever seen has been banal, boring, and patronizing

    I've grown to accept the fact that it's probably watchable, at least in small doses, but I'm stubborn so I refuse to. Keep in mind my reason for not watching 30 Rock for years was that I worked on the 30th floor of 30 Rock up until a few weeks before the show premeired. It's a stupid reason not to watch a tv show.

    Also, I just don't watch that much tv.

    Ok, well, I suppose there's no arguing with that.

    I find it to be the most endearing and well-constructed sitcom I've seen in a long long time, and of course the science nut in me loves the references and in-jokes.


    Either way, the point was that Bill Prady, one of the co-creators, is giving the keynote at TAM this year and I get to meet him.

    Woooo.

    See, your recommendation carries way more weight. The whole premise looked so ridiculously patronizing to geek culture. I guess it's not as bad as I thought it would be? Off the top of my head, I think only Futurama has ever really done that kind of humor well.

    You know, I actually here that a lot.

    The thing is, the geeks are the heroes in this one. They aren't the comic relief or the foil to some hollywood beauty. The show is really about them and how they deal with things and while it certainly exaggerates certain things, I know people exactly like every single one of them.

    And there's a large percentage of the jokes where they say something smart and the "normal" blonde waitress across the hall doesn't get it. It's her not understanding that's the joke, not that these geeks are saying geeky things.

    So, yeah, I like it. And there are little things like how the equations on their white board is actually progressing through a physics issue written up by a CalTech professor.

    I'm living there at least until the middle of June; I'm doing this teaching program there, helping kids in the public schools learn English by pretending I don't understand their Spanish. Which, honestly, isn't always that far from the truth; kids are apparently a lot harder to understand than adults, and that's saying something, going off of Andalusian Spanish...

    I'd love to do this.
    Does anyone else think the schools in the US should do this too? I sure as shit do (but with another language besides english... obviously). We'd probably get all those "SPEEK AMARICAN DAMMIT!" people though.
