  1. Season 5 If I were being honest about where I would rank TNG for television shows, it's top ten/top fifteen. But there's no doubt in my mind that one episode out of this season ranks as my top five/top ten episodes of series television period. Redemption Part II - It's kind of laughable that the Duras kid was seriously considered at one point. Darmok - This is a batshit crazy episode about communication between cultures doing things so dramatically different... and it works. Ensign Ro - At this point, I wonder if the Cardassians will ever redeem themselves. I guess DS9 will have to answer it. Silicon Avatar - It takes an indifferent crystalline entity to stop Riker from getting laid. Otherwise, a scientist lady seeks vengeance on that same entity. And Data lands one hell of a figurative gut punch of all time. Disaster - This wasn't bad as Picard is stuck with kids and Worf delivers a baby. The Game - Wesley Crusher saves the day... again. But holy shit is Ashley Judd cute in this one. Unification - I don't think it's a hot take when I say this was very underwhelming, even with Spock. A Matter of Time - I did not know that guy was Max Headroom. New Ground - I'm not as annoyed with the kid that played Alexander, but this was a meh episode. Hero Worship - This should've been better, but it's okay. A kid acts like Data to cope with serious trauma. Violations - This is kind of mild, but you kind of wish would've tackled this episode a little better. This era would've handled mind rape much differently. The Masterpiece Society - Counselor Troi episodes are just boring. Conundrum - I feel like Rick and Morty used the premise from this episode and played it for laughs. Power Play - I kind of enjoyed the cookiness of this when three random aliens take over Data, Troi, and O'Brien. Ethics - I'm more shocked at how medicine isn't more advanced at this point. The Outcast - Yeah this episode would never get made today. Cause and Effect - Groundhog Day The First Duty - Uh, wasn't that guy in Voyager? And the best part is Wesley Crusher is knocked down several pegs. Cost of Living - Another Lwaxana Troi episode... The Perfect Mate - This episode has some great philosophical implications about free will. It also features sexy Famke Jansen pre Xenia Onatopp. Her Klingon growl is somethings else. Worf's reaction is priceless. I almost forgot about the holodeck line. Imaginary Friend - Kind of creepy I, Borg - Guinan and Picard sell this episode. That look on Guinan's face when Hugh tells her the Borg are lonely too hits you pretty hard. The Next Phase - This episode isn't that remarkable, but the thought of being kicked into space scares the shit out of me. The Inner Light - I thought that was Brian Doyle Murray, but the actor's name is actually Richard Riehle. Anyways, I feel like science fiction is at it's best when it isn't too sciency (not a word, I know). This is the episode I mentioned earlier. I haven't been wowed like this in a long time. That ending is perfect. Time's Arrow Part I - And we end the season on this note. It's okay, but every episode is a disappointment after the last one.

    Making a Murderer (Netflix)

    I finally got around to watching this, and I'm 3 episodes in. I'm at the point where the two cops interrogated Brendan. Uh, why wasn't there an attorney present during his questioning? And that interrogation doesn't feel right. I'm sure some internet digging will help, but man this feels bizarre.
  3. Season 4 I think TNG, like a lot of shows deserving of attention, hit their stride around season 3 or season 4. It really shows. There's still some clunkers, but man the highs are definitely high. Season 4 was very good, but there are head scratches in this one. The Best of Both Worlds Part II - I like the idea of the Borg more than I like the execution. I actually enjoyed Riker with the four pips of a captain. Family - This episode hit me in the feels twice. First, you get to see Picard just break down and be vulnerable in the face of his brother, who he feels has bullied him all his life. And then there's Wesley. I forget that at heart he's really a kid who lost his dad, and that speech from his father really did it. Brothers - Brent Spiner does a pretty good job playing 3 roles in this one. Data, Evil Data, and their creator/father. Suddenly Human - It's fairly obvious in the Star Trek universe no one has heard of the classic genre known as heavy metal. Remember Me - I vaguely remember seeing this when it debuted (or syndication). It's okay as Beverly Crusher occupies a shrinking universe. It's kind of boring to be honest. Legacy - In case you're wondering, that's not Linda Hamilton or someone related to her. The resemblance is uncanny though. Reunion - Worf's ex girlfriend is not that bad looking to be honest. How Worf didn't get court marshaled for taking vengeance is just kind of mind boggling. Future Imperfect - Riker has a son. This is statistically possible. Best part of this episode is Admiral Picard... with a beard and mustache. Final Mission - That captain they hang out with is super stupid. It's okay. The Loss - Futurama did the 2D beings a bit better. I'm not sure where this episode went. The sub plot with Counselor Troi should've been a gold mine, but it wasn't. Data's Day - I kind of like Data narrating his day. And Keiko and Miles O'Brien have no chemistry whatsoever. And then there's the person who, surprise, is not a Vulcan but a Romulan. I don't know what to think at this point. The Wounded - If it was any other actor besides the warden from Shawshank Redemption, I would've believed the captain that the Cardassians (who kind of strike me as pretty big assholes) were plotting something. Devil's Due - When you live in a universe where Q exists, how in the hell do you not suspect aliens (when strange shit happens) as the very first suspect? Clues - I love the sexy of girls in garters, but I'm not quite sure what to think when Whoopi Goldberg does it. I guess she has nice legs (or it could be her body double)? First Contact - Riker doesn't even try, and he gets laid. Sure there's a point about the Prime Directive, but it's overshadowed by random alien lady wanting to get it on with Riker. Galaxy's Child - And on the opposite end of the spectrum from Riker is Geordi. This episode merits some discussion given the era we live in. Identity Crisis - This could've been better. The Nth Degree - This is what happens when you take the awkward out of Barclay, and he could easily pass into super villain territory. Qpid - Out of all the weird allusions/references to have, Work breaking the shit out of a lute definitely feels like an Animal House homage. And it's nice seeing Vash again, who's sort strikes me as someone who could realistically pass as a younger love interest for Picard. The Drumhead - Not sure courtroom drama works so well, but damn isn't Picard magnificent as always. Half A Life - Would it be too hokey (and self aware) for the crew of the Enterprise to point out Lwaxana Troi sounds an awful lot like the ship? This is actually not a bad episode. I kind of like how Lwaxana feels about the guy that has to kill himself because custom dictates it. The Host - I don't remember much to be honest. The Mind's Eye - Man, Star Trek went really dark with Geordi's torture scenes. In Theory - This is a bizarre episode. Not sure why a human thinks a relationship with someone as emotionless as an android would be a good idea (or a Vulcan, but that's another discussion for another day), but how does "friends with benefits" not cross her mind? Redemption Part 1 - The only thing not surprising is how creepy Gowron's eyes are.
  4. What about drunk Superman from Superman III?
  5. Digestion. I really did go from Season 4 to 7 nonstop. They should be forthcoming.
  6. And finished. And given I'm more used to modern television which spans only 10 to 13 episodes, Star Trek TNG really felt like a marathon. I'm glad to have done it. But I'm going to keep DS9 on hold as I watch more modern things.

    Films - Watched and thoughts 2018

    The appeal of Fantastic Beasts line is that it's the adults who are center stage for the films. That and a fat guy from the first movie is one of the gang.

    Naked Gun Vacation Spaceballs Would be my pick from what you have in the picture. But I would have a write-in nomination: Blazing Saddles I would add Blazing Saddles just for the "shock" value.

    Mesh Network Discussion

    Anybody have a good argument for Unifi with nanoHD vs Amplifi? I am moving out and into an apartment of my own.
  12. I have no clue about anything in the Devil May Cry lore, but this guy has me sold since Castlevania was much much better than I could've dreamed.
  13. I kind of wish I could replay Final Fantasy Tactics, but I don't have a PSP or PS Vita.

    Whiskey And Other Fine Spirits

    Rise from your grave. Woodford Reserve: Double Oaked I can't honestly figure out why I have inconsistent taste buds. On one hand, I get the whole, "this is pretty good". It's stronger than normal Woodford Reserve, and I kind of like it. But then there are days where I feel like I'm drinking sugar covered saw dust. The barrel notes are that strong sometimes when I pick up the "sweetness" of bourbon. Anybody else get that?
