    yes, actually

    it took a bit for suits to get on track

    everyone went insane, fashion-wise, in the 70's and it took like two decades before the fever broke

    big collars need to come back, imo

    be the change you want to see etc.

    I love big lapels but they're tough to tailor correctly for the well-endowed, boobily speaking.

    guess it is my lot to spend my life gazing enviously at lean women in tuxes.

    Cobra Kai Season 2, Episode 6
    The fact that Daniel is offering free lessons kinda inclines me to root against him. He's only able to do that because he's rich. Don't forget he tried to sabotage Cobra Kai in the first season by getting the landlord to raise the rent on every business in the strip mall.

    This was the first tolerable, bordering on good, episode. I hope the series becomes more this and less the first 7 episodes.

    Also they go to Romulus so I guess this takes place after 90s Trek but before the supernova?

    Edit: oh yeah except for that one joke at the end of the other episode which was also fantastic.

    My thing is Final Space does the whole tight knit crew thing and the Orville does Star Trek but slightly more casual and both do it better so Im kind of set. Also I dont like any of the characters

    We were halfway through the first episode, the first time either of us had seen any of the show, and my wife turned to me and said "he's your favorite isn't he" and I said yes. I love Colin Robinson.

    So I've started watching Raised by Wolves. I've seen two episodes (I had to pause because there are so many hints and mythos references that I need to unpack) and my hypemeter is right now at 11 out of 10 Xenomorphs.

    I don't want any real spoilers, but can someone tell me if I should maintain this hype level or prepare myself for Lost level disappointment?

    The season finale is next week and the two episodes that dropped this weekend are imo the best

    idk if I'd say it's the best Ridley Scott project in a long time, but it's the one I've felt most satisfied by in a long time, and a Lot would have to go wrong in the last episode to really change that

    Well. Some. Pretty cryptic ones too. But mostly I used it in the more generalized sense of mythos. References from numberology, obvious and hidden bible references, pre-christian religions, crusader myths etc.

    Considering they have mentioned Picard and the Enterprise as being actively out there doing stuff and the flashback to Mariner on DS9 with the TNG Movies/Late DS9 uniforms, I figure it has to be a couple of years after Nemesis.

    So yeah that sounds about right

    They mention the Titan in one episode which is a ship that doesnt exist if Picards depiction of Riker is canon

    I’d say it’s worth watching. It has ups and downs but it hasn’t gone like off track or anything yet.

    We got the free year of apple TV and are checking out Ted Lasso, the show where a college football coach gets hired to coach (tank) a premier league team.
    We’ve watched the 9 available episodes and I’ve decided it’s the best show on TV, at least until Better Call Saul comes back. People should absolutely check it out - don’t let the crazy premise dissuade you.

    Looking forward to the finale on Friday and then season 2 whenever it gets finished.

    Microfiche is terrifying, because if you put it in the wrong drawer it's just gone forever. My first library job was the night shift in a university government documents department, and an evergreen task was flipping through the microfiche drawers looking for misfiled envelopes.

    I was pretty ehhh about the first episode, but I've since binged through the rest of the episodes this weekend and I've completely turned around on it. It's absolutely one of my favourite shows of the year.

    Also something about the title sequence just scares the absolute shit out of me.

    I just saw an ad for a show on Peacock called Noughts + Crosses where the premise is that Africa colonized Europe 700 years ago and whites are a suppressed underclass.

    Like, I don't know what to think of this. Has anyone seen it?

    I haven't seen the show, but the books it's based on are extremely well-regarded and near the top of my reading list. Unless the producers have completely fucked up, the story thoughtfully points out the stupidity of racism by framing it in unfamiliar ways rather than just using the hook for surface-level shock value.

    Looking into it a bit, apparently it's based on a series of British YA novels written by a black woman that were fairly popular over in the UK and the people in charge of making the show are black, so I dunno. Maybe this is less of a charged premise for a piece of media over in the UK than the US.

    I do know I'm most likely not going to subscribe to Peacock just because I'm curious, though.

    I just really hate "What if colonized people were, themselves, colonizers????" One of my pet peeve genre tropes.

    It does this inadvertent thing where it makes it seem like colonization just happens, like it's natural and unavoidable, like the only variable is who does it first. It also (and again, inadvertently) justifies the paranoid fantasies of racists. One of the big fears racists have, one of their justifications for suppression of rights is, "If we give our victims too much power, they will do to us what we did to them."

    The idea that any other people, in our place, would have done the exact same thing feels like it excuses and rationalizes colonization and oppression as a natural course of action.

    Like I get that in this case the creative team is black, but it feels like a thing that would be created to assuage white guilt.

    Now I kinda want a dark comedy where white people panic so much about the other side doing what they would do, they accidentally colonize themselves, while everyone else is just confused about them and trying to go about their day. Tucker and Dale style
