So I haven’t done a post for a while only because I haven’t really been inspired by watching any massively crappy films and I have abandon watching American Gods purely because it was too much for my tiny melon to get in to.
I have however been struck by something old and awesome that I have discovered on Netflix which is… Star Trek: The Next Generation. I will be writing episode updates on this fantastic show as I think it has enough going on to make me come up with material to keep this blog going.
So far I have watched about the first 14 episodes in season 1 so instead of going through all of those I will give a brief rundown of the characters.
Running the whole operation is Captain Picard starring our favourite non-aging actor Patrick Stewart (I would say Keanu Reaves is a favourite and it is a tough call for steel facedness but for now i’ll stay with PS)
Other central characters include –
The overly horny number 1 – Riker
Possibly in the first stages of liver failure – Data
Has cataracts (which they can cure now so makes no sense for him to have a visor other than it makes him a bit more useful) – Jordi
Blonde security office who also operates the ships telephone – Tasha Yar
The slightly irritating/weepy counseller – Troi
Klingon Warrior ( I say warrior but so far he has only shot 1 person and done 3 rolly-pollies) – Worf
Annoying whizz kid who is now in The Big Bang Theory – Will Crusher
and finally The one person who is never at their post and is always wandering about – Doctor Crusher
So far in the episodes I have watched the ship has nearly been blown up twice, stolen once and about 5 times nothing happened at all really. The graphics and set production are good (Season 1 is from 1988) as it probably kept the polystyrene business going.
I can’t really remember snacks I have had on the first episodes but I can say that when I watch today it will probably get a high score as I am going to Aldi in a bit and the sale product of the day is goose. I might get one just for the hell of it.
