A few questions: Are you up to date on The Orville, and have you been enjoying the new season? Also, how do you watch it in Ireland? I have been loving it. There was a recent episode I had pegged early on as kind of a paint by numbers affair that turned around on me and ended up being much more.

holy fuck.... that latest episode, I thought all along he was a cool stand in for Data and really was impressed that he managed to be a character without any form of face (potato head not counting) but wow that show has got me totally hooked on the world they're spinning and I hope every one of the 3m who tune in each week is enough for them to continue making the show.

From what I understand Fox recently dropped 1.5billion dollars on WWE which has failed to break the 3m viewers figure for the last 2-3 years so hopefully that means the show is worth the money I think it deserves.

Sadly here in Ireland the only real means I have to watch it is via piracy from the pirate bay as Netflix has gone all in on bringing us Star Trek Discovery instead which I'm about 4 episodes behind with but have no real interest in continuing on with, even though I'm the biggest trek nerd you'll meet and have watched every episode of every show they've made including the animated series. I love Trek but STD isn't Trek, it's just war with a star trek license on it, the hopeful future has been ripped out and replaced with cgi space battles with characters I don't care about.

Genuinely it's my fav show each week and possibly one of the favourite things I've seen since Breaking bad.


With some more checking about, this is from a year ago, https://www.reddit.com/r/TheOrville/comments/72zk6x/any_way_to_legally_watch_the_orville_in_europe/ from what I understand things still didn't change here. Pirate bay ftw. would love to support the show but can't.

on 23 February 2019

Yeah, regarding the latest ep: The show continues to surprise me. Whether it be in more self contained stories, or in the overall arc. I was taken off-guard by the pacing of the last ep. My least fav ep this year was the "Astrology Race", ( which felt very STTNG to me ) , but it was still solid. I was turned off by early buzz from STD, and nothing I've heard since has changed that. It looks like crap tbh.

on 24 February 2019

You know that Astrology episode was so TNG that I am also rewatching TNG alongside a podcast of 2 guys reviewing each episode of it called "The Greatest Generation" absolutely amazing podcast btw, would highly recommend for any Trek fan.

But after watching a few eps of TNG I was thinking back over them and thinking... man... I barely remembered that episode about the crazy star sign people but it was really good, before stopping myself and thinking like.... fuck, that wasn't TNG, had legit been so TNG that in my mind I had accidentally put it in there as a TNG episode and not Orville.

I find it really funny now to look back at things like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgKxeX0_oL4 and think man... Seth wanted to be on Trek so much that he went on to make his own Show about it which now gets 3 million viewers per episode.

As for STD it just makes me sad, it's like they went into a board room with some power point docs about how they need to make Star Trek be more like Star Wars because everyone loves Star Wars right not, so they've warped the IP to breaking point, almost every single character on that show has mental health issues as well, as a part of their character, the range from having PTSD, Asperger's, Guilt induced imaginary friends, insane inferiority complexes, there is just not a single person on the bridge who is likable or who I can relate to while watching the show, Michael is just too powerful and none of the other characters get any time in the lime light to accommodate that, it would be like if Star Trek TNG wanted Riker to be the main character of the show.... so every episode you put him next to one of the other characters helping them to fix a stupid issue they got themselves into, the end result would have been TNG where no character seems like a real person, Riker would seem god like and you would wonder how any of the others graduated from Star Fleet Academy.

on 24 February 2019

I doubt I'll have the time to listen to that podcast, but at least I know about it now. So, are you telling me that you briefly confused the Orville episode we've been talking about as a TNG episode? :) Haaa. That's pretty cool that Seth was in Enterprise. Aside from the first 2-3 episodes of Enterprise, I actually haven't watched a new Star Trek TV show since Voyager ended, so I had no idea he did that cameo.

on 28 February 2019

He doesn't just have one cameo either lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OG6dQjDwJfU

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D63cxvHmbWk

He has 3 appearances as that engineer with dialogue each time as well, feel sorry for the other extra's but they would probably have asked for money but Seth clearly was creaming his pants at the thought of putting on a Starfleet uniform.

I'll always say it, Enterprise isn't the worst TV you could ever watch, there are some really good episodes later on in its fairly short run but some really terrible ones as well to go with it, also they are very careful with continuity in it unlike in STD, say for example the Borg are in an episode and they address the Enterprise but their transmission is scrambled as the ship tries to make sense of the start of it ya know the "We are the Borg, Lower your Shields and surrender your vessels speech" as such the Borg portion of it is missing and the crew leave the episode not knowing who the aliens were and so the Enterprise D's first encounter with them is the first time that Star Fleet knows they have encountered, The Borg.

I always recommend Trek with one caviate though.... I love everything Trek lol, got about a grand worth of Models on my PC Desk from the show so aye.... my recommendation is like that of a 30 stone man squeezed into a XXXXXXL Superman shirt sweating and telling you that Justice League wasn't a bad film! :D

What's it like in Ireland?

we joke here in the south west.... Ireland is...

Scattered showers

But yeah, Irelands lovely :o a big change from Au I would imagine considering that you have spiders, bugs and crocodiles, Ireland has.... rainbows and lucky charms (although that's actually an American cereal which you have to import here)

Can't beat the green fields of home though, would advise a visit if you're ever doing a world tour, the county I live in is just a couple of hours away from that Island where Luke was hiding out in the Force Awakens so there is even some nice nerd culture in the area if green isn't your thing.

on 22 November 2018

In my defence, every country has spiders, bugs, crocodile.
Sounds like a lovely place. Green fields, rainbows, nerd culture in the area, nice. You're pretty lucky.
All we have is a giant jetti, fake giant cactuses, and sand hills.

Apparently it's not OK for mcgregor to trash talk khabibs family but it's OK for khabib to call mcgregors grandfather a traitor who killed his own people xD

It's like I said, Conor is more WWE than he is UFC at this stage, he is a version of his own personality turned up to 11 to get the crowd entertained / angry at him so they'll buy the ppvs and watch him fight / get maimed.

Don't work yourself into a shoot brother comes to mind when I see people getting annoyed by him to the levels that some do, also.... me and my flat mate tried to have a trash talk session which didn't include anything to do with family, background, race or religion... it was pretty tame and by that I mean... it revolved around fav foods / drinks... and I don't think a single person in the universe would buy a ppv to watch us fight after it :D

I'm truly sorry Ganon. I was nothing less than a total asshole to you. The timing of everything was atrocious. You're one of my favorite people on here. That's why I message you on PSN with pictures of my sock feet and musings on technology.

in relation to the Fortnite stuff is it? Honestly I think it's just one of those things where you seem to dislike the game to the point where anything about it isn't going to have value, and honestly I do appreciate that view of things but at the same time I just wasn't going to go into the nitty gritty of why certain things had value to people who play that thing.

It would be like trying to convince an alien why dollars have less value than euros :D when he is just trying to put ketchup on you and eat you.... I didn't wanna get eaten!

on 04 October 2018

It's not about any of that shit. It's about the tone I took.

on 04 October 2018

After crunching my Sciatic nerve in between some vertibre as well so my time sitting down isn't exactly my happy time now... unless I'm playing Paladins and frying people as my lightning Orc.

So I'm just saying I could equally have explained more my lack of desire to answer rhetorical questions but aye.... one of my favourite hobbies now hurts me to do, sucks.

on 04 October 2018

Don't worry about it, no harm done though I just played my normal card of "backs away slowly from argument" it works pretty well for me most of the time especially in things like Fortnite, I should point out, considering I've a Switch with several titles (10 or so) entering the 100 hours mark, fortnite for me barely reached double digits.

I enjoy it and see the appeal but equally it's not something which appeals to me in a long term way, there is no ranked, no story, no real progression other than cosmetic items, it ticks very few of my boxes for a good game ... for me, but I appreciate what they've created is a very good game, it's just not my kinda good game, if that makes sense.

on 04 October 2018

:Don't worry about it" is the most important thing you said bud.

jeez i was making a joke big guy.

:D I could tell, was just strange seeing you pop up in the necro'd thread after months when it was just randomly popped to the top, I'm not sure why but I pictured you having a batphone type thing going off that someone posted about her after reading that other comment towards you.

Thread got locked but wasn't meant as a serious jab Prof sorry if you took it as that, air pretty tense around here of late!!

Oh lol, you're so right. I've been gone for a while and yeah the site just seems super hostile recently, and then I didn't see you as my friend so I thought you unfriended me. But it seems I'm being paranoid...which confirms to me that my theory on onion being recruited to the spaceforce in lieu of a stint in county for videocard larceny, going back in time using mars' gravitational fields to create a mandelaeffect alt user, is just a symptom of that paranoia.

on 27 June 2018

Maybe Onionberry is actually Trump? Have we ever seen her perfectly round bum and him in the same place?

>.>

I can't imagine why she left here XD to be fair, you show 1,000 or so nerds an ass like that... everyone saving that pic, just saying.
