  1. I don't specifically remember Frank S.'s comment in MATM about that, but it was a little while ago I saw it. I just remember the talk about how you really had to be a self-starter and not need much help or oversight as a writer. They didn't apparently have writers' rooms in the way we usually think of them. They were able to do that in S-1 & 3 where the episodes were self-contained, but S-2, M&W kind of serialized, adding mythology. Anyway, it had to be extremely challenging, especially when CC was doing XF, an XF movie, along w/Harsh Realm and The Lone Gunmen. His involvement had
  2. I don't know for sure what Morgan and Wong had in mind, but at the time there was a good amount of grousing about it, even publicly. "How were we supposed to write our way out of an apocalypse?" some griped. Well, they did it. It wasn't how I or others might have wanted it or done it ourselves, but that indicates, to me, anyway, there were any number of ways to do it. If I recall correctly, and I might not since I watched it quite some time ago, but Frank S. commented about that being writers' jobs and the whole point in The Millennium After the Millennium. I'd agree. Some people would correct
  3. Yes, they canceled it after just the 2nd episode, I guess because it was just too expensive to shoot with all the Covid rules in effect. A shame, I rather dig the show. There is such of dearth of TV dramas right now b/c of Covid. Some new documentaries which are good, but not for everyone, I don't think. Still, anything's better than this 24 hour news cycle all the time IMO--too depressing.
  4. Something for the Old Man, perhaps. "Next" premiered tonight on the East Coast on our Fox network, and it's pretty good. A nice tech-dystopia (specifically AI) taking place in present day. I hate the camera work, but there's such a dearth of new drama on TV, I'm in a very forgiving mood with such things. Trailer here
  5. Masks were illegal to wear in public in NYC until this--for good reason. We needed to be able to ID criminals. Now you're a criminal if you don't wear one. A hundred young adults in their 20s went to a party in a nearby county. Eight got Covid and the county wanted to "contact-trace" them. They refused. The county subpoena'd them and they'd faced a $2,000/day fine each if they dodged it. They didn't. The thing was, the people at the party were all aware of the good chance they'd catch the virus and it's doubtful the tracing made any difference. What does matter is that they knew they were posi
  6. That photo looks like it's from Coney Island in the 1950s except for the white house. Very crowded. I ended up getting a couple of masks from my dentist, but they were NOWHERE to be found for literally months. Ended up using a bandana:) We've had a similar situation here where the states are all doing their own things. Some are downright oppressive. Others are being more sensible: trying to stay safe but open. But we have the BLM protests happening, too, which is definitely not good for flattening the curve. Still, for all the news this weekend about a new surge in the south, like Florida and
  7. Perhaps I should and will revisit DS9 when there's a dearth of contemporary programming. I had a hard time getting into Voyager. I binged it on a long flight, from NYC to Tehran, if I'm not mistaken, and maybe I would've liked it better on a bigger screen, but I doubt it. It wasn't a lack of effects that I didn't like so much as it seemed to be trying to be "politically correct," which I hate in principle in sci-fi. Ppl's views in the future will surely be different from today's, after all. I actually liked the starting point for the Picard series, acknowledging the time pass and what hap
  8. The finale was kind of trippy, and more in the ayahuasca sense than a MDMA one. (nauseating) I do actually like that the show takes on Picard's age head-on rather than trying to cover it up, though. Too many young'uns in TV shows, IMO. (One of many reasons I liked MM so much--Lance wasn't a Mulder.) Agree the giant orchids launched by the synths from the surface were a bit much, but I also took the space orchids as metaphoric for "Daughter's" father, the botanist who raised her, not Data. It could've been anything the writers wanted, and I'd have done something else, but that's what
  9. Gee, Seesthru, I kind of like Florida, especially in the winter. I think the sneezy kids and wheezy bums are pretty much the same everywhere, so we have to be super-careful when we go out in public to avoid germs, especially today. The locals I know (not many, admittedly) don't think it's all a hoax, though the governor has left quarantine orders up to the counties. West Palm is the only county I know well enough to discuss, and county officials had it locked up tighter than a drum when I was there. No golf for the old folks, even! The spring-breakers are usually from out-of-state and really s
  10. Oh yeah, forget all about paper products or cleaning supplies of any kind. I just did an Amazon order, the shelves here were so bare in our stores!
  11. Gosh, Old Man, what kind of food do you eat that will keep a few months? Canned corn and Spam? Ick. I'm still puzzling over the toilet paper shortages, which apparently you have in the U.K., as well. It keeps though, so why not? I feel so lucky, I got a dozen organic eggs this week! It's recently been like how I'd imagine breadlines to be in the former Soviet Union around here! Back to normal, please!
  12. Geesh, Darlene, it's hard to imagine! Still, I wish the best of luck and hope you'll stop by now and again even if it's just for a quick hello.
  13. Sorry for being late, but many happy returns!
