Re: After Trek

Thanks for commiseration, ladies! What we ended up doing for the show itself was hook DH's laptop to receiver via HDMI cord (don't ask me to explain any of that). But--we're only using a single cord, which is maybe the issue?--we had to fuck about with the damned audio for ten minutes before we coul...

Re: Clearly

As relatively privileged people, it's constantly surprising how many things (like this) we simply take for granted. I was recently reminded of the significance of menstrual care supplies: in many parts of the world, girls leave school far earlier than boys, and a huge reason is often the inaccessibi...

Re: After Trek

I AM SO FRUSTRATED!!! Been traveling etc. and didn't make an effort to see this series till there was a nice juicy lot of episodes to view. Finally signed up on my laptop. We have a big television, which my technologically inclined DH has supplemented with additional speakers etc. and comfy chairs, ...

Re: The Death of Stalin

Marie, even my husband laughed aloud and expressed enthusiasm! :shock:
I think it looks hilarious--and what a dream cast! (though, yes, my fave shot is the general dramatically swirling his cloak about his shoulders :adore )

Re: Netflix FYSEE kick-off event

I had to go rummage for a bit--it's a cute play on "FYC," for your consideration.
I guess it's 'campaigning' for Emmys? Is that permitted? Are Netflix projects eligible?
So many question. So little interest in the answers...

Re: New project: Star Trek: Discovery (CBS)

Well, that cast candid does give hope that JI may have hair... After reading the rest of this thread, I'm thinking perhaps Lorca should have a Canadian accent!! (Although, don't throw things at me, I listened to Himself on the audiobook of Case Histories , and he was of course engaging, convincing, ...

Re: New project: Star Trek: Discovery (CBS)

In the old days, we could share home-recorded disks with one another, but we're on a DVR now with no capability to do that. :-( Well, anyone who wants can come watch at my house, how's that! (Marie, I had a school friend who was such a Star Trek nerd that--pre-internet--she knew all the episodes, th...

Jason got the soccer pitch :lol I'm on the verge of hopelessness, myself... we had two Democrats vote for Trump's appointee to the Environmental Protection Agency, when the vote didn't even make a difference in approval.

Re: I saw it tonight (maybe some SPOILERS)

I saw it Friday with my old pal who loves movies in general, and has a penchant for weird. The theater was surprisingly full--it was a small one, but nearly sold out. Concur with most of your observations, Thunder--thought I would have pegged the inspiration material as sufficient for more than thre...

Re: OT: IMDB closing down its message boards

I'm genuinely saddened to read this.
I occasionally wandered over to get more ideas about a movie that had puzzled me, and sometimes I found real and interesting insights.
But there was a lot of rubbish too. :-(
