  1. Hahaha. I did have a snigger when I looked at an episode list to remind myself which one Carbon Creek was, and saw what you had coming up next. Tbh I don't mind those Phlox episodes as much as some do though!
  2. Yessss, watch it all, make me doubly jealous. Even the bad episodes are better than anything Discovery can offer.
  3. I'm quite jealous of Thor now. I feel like I should emulate him by going through, say, the early seasons of DS9 or the Ferengi comedy episodes that I skipped but it wouldn't be the same.
  4. I watched Enterprise in response to Discovery being so unspeakably awful. I reasoned it couldn't possibly be as bad as that. And I loved it! I think I needed the huge gap between Voyager ending and now - and a reminder of how bad things could be - before I was able to properly appreciate it. I definitely recommend going in. It's worthwhile. My original plan was to follow this episode guide and only watch the 3s and 4s: http://www.letswatchstartrek.com/ent-episode-guide/ However I decided I'd watch the first ten or so regardless just to get to know the characters, and I quickly realised that even the "bad" episodes were pretty good so I might as well watch the whole thing. My decision was further vindicated when an episode this guy gives a 1 rating to, "Dear Doctor", turned out to be one of my favourites. I think that's a Marmite episode though!
  5. I'm looking forward to seeing you all hate-watching it more than the series itself.
  6. Who was it then? Don't make me actually watch this.

    Doctor Who

    Keep Graham, get rid of those other two.
  8. Hah. The article about it in Radio Times says it rained for the first nine days of the shoot, in June. I loved this though, it was excellent. Best thing I've seen on tv this Christmas.
  9. I did wonder about that, but I wouldn't put it past the producers to get the Photoshop monkeys to introduce spelling mistakes on purpose just to see if the candidates pull them up on it. Even if that's not the case, it's a constant source of surprise how much supervision some people require to do their jobs correctly. Lewis did actually spell out "parfam" and the guy on the computer just said "oh OK". I bet he'd been told not to interfere even if he knew it was wrong!
  10. "Power is calling" Highlight of the series to date.

    The Crown

    Between this and the Gordonstoun episode last series, The Crown seems to be working quite hard to make us feel sorry for Charlie. Worked on me!
  12. You can see descriptions for a few episodes ahead on the programme website. Here's the Perfume one: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000byvt
  13. The silver lining for me is that it made me watch Star Trek Enterprise, which I gave up on way too early the first time round, and I loved it. It also made me watch The Orville, which I thought looked stupid but couldn't possibly be as stupid as Discovery.
  14. It's amazing how that Short Trek thing even looks like bad video fan fiction, never mind the dialogue. It reminded me of the Doctor Who rip-off that used to air on Six TV Oxford, which you've probably never seen but was just as it sounds.

    I remember it being marketed online by them simply making around 15 minutes of it available to download. Was it that sequence they released, do you remember? Whatever it was, it definitely worked on me! Went from knowing nothing about it to a trip to the cinema, and forking out for the cinema is a pretty rare event for me.

    I guess a lot of people will have watched Serenity before Firefly, especially in the UK (given that Serenity had a widespread cinema release and Firefly was hidden away on pay TV). Me included! It works really well that way round. Serenity is on Netflix at the moment by the way. By coincidence I watched it last night for the first time since I saw it in the cinema. Still great!
  17. You should watch the whole thing! I was strangely grateful that Discovery's awfulness made me go back to Enterprise's first season with fresh eyes, then stay till the end. It's way different from other Trek but a great series in its own right.
  18. The ghost who's running around with no trousers is one big sexual reference. That's his thing! It will go over kids' heads or be easily explained away though.
  19. My hatred for Discovery made me revisit Enterprise about a month ago, too. I had a bit of a downer on it originally and didn't give it enough of a chance, but it turns out that I was just spoiled for choice back then. I think it's great now, especially in contrast to Discovery! It's so refreshing to have the stories unfold at a sensible pace and to have characters I vaguely care about. I've taken a bit of a break between S3 and S4, but it's only getting better so far.
  20. The bridge crew all volunteered, which at least implies that the ship can be flown with a skeleton crew so the rest of them probably didn't need to come. But no doubt their undying love for Michael Burnham and despair at the thought of being separated from Tilly drove them to their doom, even the ones they'd never met.

    Now TV

    Now TV's stick is a rebranded Roku stick - even the remote is basically the same. I can't remember whether the NowTV version supports Netflix and Amazon though!
