Getting back to the thread itself - been enjoying the second series of Preacher.
Clearly invoking the spirit of the original comic without slavishly following the plot.
Herr Star is the gift that keeps on giving. Laughing

Yep. Season 2 has been absolutely fantastic. A million times better than season 1.
Starr is superb & they don't at all seem to give a monkey's who they offend this time round.
The Humperdoo thing & the whole Eugene & Hitler busting out of hell plot are wonderful Laughing

I'm up to episode 8 now & it's a superb adaptation. Light years better than that Mist P.O.S.
Brendan Gleeson, as Hodges, is terrific & Harry Treadaway makes for a seriously unhinged Brady.
I see it's now being shown on RTE One in Ireland.

Oooh, good, sounds promising! Very Happy
I'll have to keep an eye out for it coming to the UK

For the first time. I had good fun watching this. Church massacre, firework heads, Sweedish princess. Sublime. Laughing

I'm glad netflix is showing it in HDR. Makes the space scenes so much more amazing to look at.
It also made me want to revisit some of the older Treks, but they've been left in 4:3 aspect ratio & it's super annoying.

I've really enjoyed (most of) the previous series as well. TNG being the favorite by far. Even though it was a long time I watched any of it. Remember I was mad at DS9 being such a blatant B5-clone but got over it eventually. Yadayada.

Yeah, it looks frickin' amazing! Love that they've included Klingon subtitels as well Laughing

after the completely brilliant TNG (which i also haven't watched for ages, but must have watched in it's entirety upwards of 20 times) i also found DS9 an utter disappointment. i hated it to start with when it was pretty much the "Quark & Odo Show", however once the Dominion saga started properly (around season 4 or 5 -when Worf joined) it was a different beast.

EDIT: to be on topic, i havent watched any of this at all. i disowned the franchise completely when Enterprise was so godawful (and not just that grinning eejit from quantum leap).

Yep, up until the Dominion war started, it was a bit of a soap opera

i change my previous statement- it was all about Scott Bakula.....i just couldn't get past a) how unnecessarily shoddy it was to have taken an established one-character actor from another successful (albeit utter bollocks) sci-fi show and given him a leading role and b) his appalling inability to act. the fact that the show turned out to be an enormous turkey was a bonus. so i never got to that completely sad state of affairs (as i have so often before) where i'm watching something awful simply because there's a fit bird in it.

however on the strength of your reviews and the love i still hold for TNG and 7 of 9 i have d/l'd the 3 episodes to watch.

Oh, so you translate everything you write here with the Google Klingon Translator? Or maybe you have a babelfish in your ear? Razz

Agree with you all. It DID get better a couple of seasons in.

I was trying to form some kind of statement about my feelings towards Enterprise but I could not for my life remember what I thought about it. So I guess it was the blandest of them all. I DO however recall andorians had a semi-large part in it? I believe I like that at least. But yeah. Scott Bakula - go home. Or whatever. Stay away from Star Trek.

eastmidswhizzkid: Hope you enjoy it! I had no expectations of it but so far I've been glued to the screen (not as much in the 3rd episode though).

Re: Star Trek:Discovery
ok, you got me. i must say the first episode left me undecided. i wasn't keen on the new captain, the "alien" science officer's character, the dramatic overhaul of the klingons or the vulcan guy who seemd a bit less vulcan thanthey usually are and a bit up his own arse. plus the residual cheese of the whole franchise was as present as ever. but i was happy to watch the second, if only to see the outcome of the story.
sooooooooo glad i did. if sci-fi series set in space were judged purely by the battles fought in space then this would have got me anyway, but the second episode was good all-round. i decided from the instant it started that i loved the way they had chosen to portray the klingons; their extreme physical appearance and the excellent way that the main guy ennunciated his spoken klingon made them feel totally alien in a way previous interpretations hadnt. the speical effects are superb and i have no problem with the fact that federation weapons now sound exactly the same as the empires weapons from star wars. after all, thats the way space-weapons should sound. the captain is no longer a problem and the cheese is easily ignorable when the rest of it is so good.
off to watch the third one now.

would be nice if the 3rd and 4th were as good as the 2nd but hanging in there....

Yestarday at cinema

Fine art at its best! Highly recomended, not only because it's Polish co-production made also in my home town.

THE VIETNAM WAR - series on BBC 4

Harrowing and haunting and extremely uncomfortable viewing but compelling and compulsive. Extremely well done
