Sheeeit Image Heard the rumours, didn't know it'd been confirmed. Excellent timing, been a couple years since I marathonned S1-3. Best TV I've ever seen.

I'm really finding it difficult to find anything that has been so consistent from start to finish. I have full faith that season 4 will deliver.

I guess it's safe to say, unfortunately, we won't see Mr. Wrench. Maybe his dad.

I've been binge-watching a lot of To Catch a Predator and Hansen vs Predator. Chris Hansen is a champion.

Altered Carbon Season 2 (Netflix)

In retrospect, wow does season 1 make a lot more sense in a post-Epstein-"suicide" world.

To sum up, the first season is about how the creation of immortality technology allowed the oligarchy to continue accruing wealth to absolutely absurd degrees. It remains one of the sleaziest shows on Netflix, but now I get that it's a sci-fi exploration of the destructive effects of our growing wealth inequality. The ending that I originally thought was over the top is actually quite apt now that Lolita Island is common knowledge.

The second season, unfortunately, chucks the first season's entire theme and just makes it about the weak sci-fi worldbuilding details that scaffolded the theme in the first season, with a boring and predictable soap opera-y plot, and barely any of the gratuitous nudity of season 1.

Spoiler: show
It's the Horta episode of Star Trek if they decided the Horta and the Mine foreman were both evil and incinerated them both from orbit.

Queen: Live in Rio, actually watched a couple of months ago on the TV, but I think it still deserves my recommendation. Not as masterful a TV job as Live Aid (I suppose BBC wasn't there that time), but most terrific performance from the band. So, if you wish they had ever released more live albums, or less "edited" live recordings, or just more filmed gigs at all, you could do worse than watch this.

Opinions on Picard? I am not a Trekkie (I am not a "fan" of anything, really), but I am well acquainted with the the franchise. What should I expect?

Not my place to say, knowing little of Trek and caring less, but FWLIW I've been amused by the ongoing torments of famous hack frauds Rich and Mike at the hands of an even bigger hack fraud, the artless fart-huffing shitbird Alex Kurtzman. Image

When talking about "Picard" the question isn't, "are you a fan of Star Trek," but rather, "are you a fan of Mass Effect 3?"

*looks up Mass Effect 3 on the intarwebs*

...should I be afraid to ask for some more information? Modern games scare me to no end (ahhh! 3D! Oh noes!).
