    November 4th!?

    Thoughts on The Orville going to Hulu? I'm a little worried, but hopeful. It won't have any impact on how I watch it, since it will simply be moving to a different TV channel in Canada. Most likely he new CTV Sci-Fi channel ( it was called Space for almost 2 decades ). Many streaming services are still not available here due to the government run CRTC agency.It's a blessing and a curse.

    Oh well there was no official way to watch it here in Ireland so for me it's going from Piracy with one logo on it to Piracy with another logo.

    I give my money each month to Netflix for my 4k sub, if another company pays money to start a online sub model and removes shows from Netflix... I'll continue to watch the shows just not on Netflix and I'll keep supporting my boys.

    Again, Ganon, I feel I owe you an apology for being an aggressive jerk. So, apologies. I'm gonna PM you when I get a chance.

    Oh about the Denis Leary stuff? Man I've got a few mates who can't stand the guy as well, I've had a few of the comedy shows which he ripped off 100% played for me especially some of the work of Bill Hicks where he pretty much copies down to the little inflections in the speech and movements.

    I just watch tons and tons of comedy and stand up though so I'm well used to people copying other material and in some cases copying their own material and having to play it off as a new and interesting discovery for themselves, Jimmy Carr does that a lot sometimes having to play out the same sort of thing where he tells half a story and then comes to a realization mid way through it that leads it down another path... but if you see him on big fat quiz, 8 out of 10 cats (does countdown) and some of his own stand up dvd's or netflix specials, then you'll see that he retells the stories and jokes playing up what worked and leaving out parts which didn't to the point where you can see his own reactions to the story are just as fake as most of the storys themselves.

    Sorry for the tangent... but.... given the above paragraph, I still love the fuck outta Jimmy Carr for all of his comedic work, I think he is amazing but I watch him knowing that he has to perform tours and gigs all over the place and he has to borrow from all over including himself to create that amount of content.

    It's like my love of star trek.... I love it even though episodes like Tuvix exists or spocks brain! you gotta take the good with the bad.

    The same mostly goes for posts on VGchartz :D unless I kinda call out where someone has rubbed me up the wrong way I don't really take too much of it to heart, the people who do annoy me to the point where I'm going to not post @them anymore, I kinda tell directly that it's too much.

    Ah dude. I wish I could remember my exact quote to my cousin regarding the Tuvix episode, but if I were stand up, and he was an audience, I slayed. :)

    I should have worded my post differently. Like: "I highly suspect Denis Leary is a joke thief", instead of dealing in confrontational absolutes.

    I;m hopeful for PIcard, but skeptical. It's airing in Canada on cable TV, so I get to try it out risk free. Any thoughts?

    I worry that it's just going to be hauling out old memories, pointing at them and screaming "REMEMBER THIS" At the camera for 45 mins each week, I recently finished rewatching TNG as I've been enjoying the heck outta a podcase which I strongly recommend called "The Greatest Generation" but man... that ending, Troi's line of "you were always welcome" that cuts through me like a knife through a slightly softer knife. Even knowing the scene is coming it always gets me right in the feels.

    Picard should have been left alone there or the TNG movies which I more see as a romp for the cast and crew rather than viewing them as harshly as some of the critics did.... (like Tom Hardy nearly offed himself after seeing critical reaction to Nemesis, always sad to see)

    Picard here in Ireland will likely go up on Netflix the same as Disco did, either that or the Pirate bay, I'll be honest, when I started off with Netflix I had the basic bitch package but over the years upped that to max so I could help fund some of those great shows they buy and make... but now with everyone wanting a slice of that streaming pie and cutting up their own shows into 20 different subscriptions... yeah piracy might be getting called on more going forwards. I have a finite amount of money and 20 monthly subs of 10 is cash I ... have but I'm not going to spend on each service having 2-3 episodes of something I want to watch each month.

    Also .... was your Tuvix line something along the lines of "if he doesn't step into the transporter... get out of my way, because I fucking will instead" The happy embrace of spraying my atoms across the bulkhead would be so much better than living in the same universe as Tuvix.

    I went on a DS9 marathon recently. It was season 6 stuff. The level to which I enjoyed it is difficult to put into words. The acting, writing, and directing, at it's best, is soooo good. Even though the big battle scenes were unfortunately, not faithful to the source material, with giant holes being blasted through every ship, with every attack. No shields! I've heard it was budgetary constraints that lead to things playing out as they did.

    I have similar thoughts to yours as for how Picard will turn out. I only recently became aware of who Alex Kurtzman is....Like about a week ago. That he is involved in any capacity is a bad sign. I'm less worried about nostalgia that feels a bit forced than I am about every episode being a journey inside the mind of an idiot.

Well obviously Sony's 1st party software sales pales in comparison to Nintendo so no need to add them genius. However I do want to add that Sony this generation with the playstation 4 have been reaching Nintendo's first party sales (or close to) with titles such as GoW,...
