    Are you caught up on The Orville? Just want to mention something if I get the all-clear.

    oh! didnt see this wall post sorry Coktoe, yup I've seen it all though, just waiting now and hoping that fox picks it up for a 3rd season.

    on 28 April 2019

    No worries. I'm legit bummed it hasn't been renewed yet. What I wanted to mention is......I think I hate Klyden. Like maybe even HATE-hate. Almost hoping he suffers an ignominious death.

    Loved season 2 in general, but wasn't a big fan of the season ( please! ), series ( noooooooo! ) finale.

    on 29 April 2019

    I kinda liked the SEASON finale, it was Seth showing he has the chops to do dark and gritty if the need arises, sort of firefly style.

    I think we're meant to hate Klyden but at the same time I kinda view him as say.... a guy who's circumsized, the kids that have that done to them have zero input on the decision but as adults I'vee found it very easy to tell if someone is when it comes to discussing the point because they need to convince others that what happened to their body was the right choice that all should under go, I mean Klyden was born female, as a man he needs to fully back the thoughts that a female moclan is an abomination because if they're allowed to live as women and have a full and happy life then he kinda sees a glimpse of the life that he never got to choose if he had it or not.

    This series has so much potential not just as a 1 and done but potentially as a whole new sci fi franchise, I really hope Fox and Seth grow the project into the potential that's clearly there for the taking.

    on 29 April 2019

    Well, I DID get notification of your post here. Have no idea how I missed it. I'm anxious to comment, but it's very early and I just woke up. So forgive me if my post seems off :).....

    Kylden,....yeah you're probably right be. Although there have been times in between him being portrayed as an ignorant, conniving, life ruining bigot, where he we was kinda just normal again, or even a sympathetic character. Like when Bortus was going through his pornography addiction ( good sci-fi! ), and the smoking episode was hilarious.

    On the one hand, some his more detestable character qualities could be seen as being culturally baked in though indoctrination that begins at birth. One the other hand, he has shown he's capable of betraying the confidence of the person he loves most in service of terrible ideals, and seems incapable of change or critical thought.

    IDK....I just want to hear that season 3 announcement!

    Me and mates chatting about Starfox / lylat wars. Didn't turn out as embarrassing as I thought it would!

    I'll give it a look soon-ish. I'm still battling monsters. And aliens. The aliens control the monsters.

    cool cool! would be cool if it reaches 50 views :D but yeah I'm the one fighting the cause of Lylat wars.

    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



    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

    Damn that battery life increase is very tempting, I could very well see myself buying one of these newer models as a pre christmas present for myself and then look at modifying my older model switch to install homebrew and emulation on it. Switch sales +1 I think for me. ...
