    Star Trek: Discovery

    I am still watching STD, its ridiculous! The more I watch the more I laugh. Overdramatized, ridiculous, twist in every episode. The story is insane! I hate most of the characters, the only one I like is the red hair ensign Tilly. Everybody is suffering and crying all the time, every major character has its own agenda, its basically like Game Of Thrones with bad writing, acting, and characters. Do not watch it if you can only do it for money, doesn't worth a penny, but I do recommend Star Trek fans to watch it, just to experience the insanity. My favourite episode without spoilers is when dark matter has borderline magical attributes... If you want something that is more similar to classic Star Trek, watch The Orville. Its somewhat scuffed, but "it's heart is at the right place".
  2. I like both Star Wars and Star Trek, although I'm a STar Trek-fan. The number one difference between the two is that Star Wars is space fantasy, while star Trek is science fiction. Technology in Star Wars is handled in a very mundane way, with a few words, it has no focus, unlike in Star Trek. As Arthur C. Clarke said once "...science fiction is something that could happen - but usually you wouldn't want it to. Fantasy is something that couldn't happen - though often you only wish that it could." My biggest problem with Star Wars - other than the fact that Disney destroyed the franchise - is that until the Disney movies, only prequels were made, no proper material about the actual present of the SW universe.

    Sci fi books

    If you like hard sci-fi, read some books from Stephen Baxters Xeelee Sequence guys! Flux is not that good in my opinion, but Raft, Vacuum Diagrams, and Timelike Infinity is awesome!

    Doctor Who

    Dear God! I just found this, sorry to anyone who thinks this is old news! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxB1gB6K-2A Reminds me of the time I learned Tate will be the new companion. To be honest, I did not like the idea at all, but I was wrong, she was brilliant playing Donna, she is one of my favourite New Doctor Who companion. BTW guy I hope you know that Twitch is streaming the classic Doctor Who episodes from time to time, like today (08/01/2019) for example! Watch and co-stream them on !

    The Orville

    Just watched the last episode, its so funny, I love it! Update: Marina Sirtis in Orville! Marina Sirtis appears as a guest in The ~Orvile S02x12! If you don't know who Marina Sirtis is what the hell are you doing here!?

    Happy New Year!

    2018 was not a very good year. Stephen Hawking, Stan Lee, and Burt Reynolds died (amongst other people). 2018 was a fucking dogshit year in terms of AAA-gaming. Fartshite came and became the #1 mainstream game, played by children mostly. After Blizzard legitimized loot boxes through Overwatch last year, AAA-pulishers introduced them in their games. The Battlefield V PC-bullshit arrived, than the Bethesda Fallout 76 scandal, than the Atlas one. Thankfully there were good games like God Of War, Spider Man, Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Red dead Redemption 2. I honestly hope 2019 will be better, now that governments started to look into the whole 'get children addicted to gambling' thing, even the UK government started to look into it! CP2077 is coming from CD Projekt RED, although Cyberpunk probably won't be done this year (2019), and Outer Worlds from the creators of Fallout and Fallout 2, so we probably going to have a proper Fallout game again, instead of that dogshit with the Creation Engine, with physics tied to the framerate. Happy New Year everyone!
  7. The Expanse is a sci-fi series, looks like Battlestar Galactica Lite. A large part of the first season plays on a space station, feels very "close-quarters", very cyberpunk, than the story starts to unfold. In my opinion the writing is a bit erratic, some twists and turns feel very cliché, very forced, very self-serving, some of the characters are not very well written, Amos is my favourite character. Its interesting, I am still watching it, so I guess its not all bad. I recommend everyone who haven't heard of it yet to check it out!

    Stargate Origins

    Oh my god! Prequel, AND young adult series, the two things giving me rashes! Watching the trailer I was waiting for (young) Indiana Jones to show up! I saw the original Stargate movie in the cinema back than, it reminds me of that, and that's nice, than its starting to remind me of "The Mummy" movies...

    The Orville

    The 'The Orville' is Seth McFerrin's sci-fi series in the spirit of classic Star Trek, like TOS and TNG. Sometimes its comical, sometimes its bold in terms of its themes. The series is already through one season consisting of twelve episodes, successful enough to get a second season, the first episode of which is airing on the 31st of December! (Second season trailer, might contain mild spoilers!)

    What's a good WWII sim?

    If you want actual squads and team-work, forget pew-pew simulators (TM by WorthABuy) like COD or Battlefield! There is a game that looks quite good if you actually like squad-based WWII FPS games with teamwork, its called "Squad". Its on Steam, its early access. I have not played with it, I don't like multi-player FPS games, but I appreciate and respect good quality games.

    New Sabrina

    LUL No, its not really the new Sabrina's fault, I tend to make rush decisions unfortunately. I don't actually have problems with Netflix, well, I hate that they take down stuff after a time. Let's just say when they took down the Tinker Bell animated films, that was not a great day for me! I'm planning to re-sub sometimes, it's just that I don't have much time to watch Netflix right now, I just got a new job, one that I actually like, I try to concentrate to make it last.

    donald I guess

    That too, I'm just not much of a typical tourist, but I would like to see Highlander-land too if I can! 🙂

    New Sabrina

    Okay, so what happened is I watched literally the first scene, realized that in tone the series has nothing to do with the old Sabrina series, stopped watching it right away, and cancelled my Netflix subscription, also right away! I am not exaggerating, that is exactly what happened! So I could not tell you whether the series goes anywhere or not.
