    Still re-watching Doctor Who in preparation for the new Doctor. Last night we said goodbye to Donna Noble until The End of Time.

    Saw the first episode of Shield tonight and the subtitle should be Shield in Space or Shield AE.

    Blazing Saddles. I checked and it was released in 1974 (!). It holds up very well.

    Some of the last episodes of ST:TNG have been returning to their roots (i.e a bit smelly).

    Yikes; Wesley is now some kind of time traveler?

    FSM help me! I'm sick!

    Watched the last 3 episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation yesterday (not the retrospective).

    Then watched the first 3 (counting the pilot as 2) of Enterprise.

    (Quite liked it. The nods to The Original Series were "fun", not annoying. I liked the tone. Worst bits: The antiseptic gel rubbing scene was a bit gratuitous. They've gone pretty quickly into use of the transporter. I get the feeling the mysterious figure from the "temporal cold war" (or whatever) will be a tedious recurring villain.)

    And, well, blow me down; I watched a ST:TNG "Q episode" and didn't hate it.

    "Tapestry", the one about Picards' change of heart. (And I mean that more than one way).

    Still not entirely sure what Q was up to in the whole thing, but anyway, it was OK.
    Ok, Young Sheldon is great. And Tapestry is one of my favorites.

    I took the kids to see The Last Jedi. I'll leave this thread spoiler free, but there was a lot to like. Almost too much stuff crammed into one movie. I can't believe it was 2 hours and 33 minutes. It didn't feel that long.

    I thought it was "power of thunder." At least that makes sense.

    Simon came into the bathroom while I was taking a bath last night to demand that I tell him how to spell "under." He knows how to spell "dog," and he needed to know both in order to search YouTube.

    Aw... I rather liked the movie, in the end, as implausible and over-the-top as it was.

    Still working on Doctor Who prior to the upcoming Christmas special. We did the 50th anniversary special last night; tonight will be the end of the Eleventh Doctor. That means we won't have time to watch hardly any of Twelve, which bothers me not at all. Maybe just the first and last ones.

    Spoilers!

    Star Trek: Enterprise.

    I had been enjoying it a lot, but episode 11 "Cold Front" confirmed my fears with the "Temporal Cold War" story line. Hate time travel as a plot element. So many magic technologies (then conveniently (for the script writers) lost at the end of the episode). So many actions unexplained (which I find irritating, not intriguing). The way the future (good?) guy died was just so - underwhelming, anticlimactic, and easy.

    Episode 12, "Silent Enemy", was interesting in being so much about the weaponry. I don't remember much of that in the ST I've watched. (Even this episode began with the usual "Unknown alien race off the starboard bow, drop shields and invite them over for tea".) Has the usual issue of ... if the folk on the ship can jerry rig such an improvement in a system, how come the designers/builders back in the shipyard couldn't have already done that? (And in a more reliable and safe way.)

    Enterprise had some really good moments to it, the last season is probably the best.

    I really liked it, too. But many of the characters were begging for death, they were really unlikable. I did love CHAPiE though. He was cool.

    Yesterday, I watched a bunch of annual favourites. The Ref, despite my hesitation. Specials for Charlie Brown and Claymation and Garfield and Sesame Street and the Grinch.

    Marvel's Inhumans. I'm just not unimpressed enough to stop watching after 2 episodes. It's obvious the general arc this has to take, and it makes no real connection to the SHIELD story. The weird space program subplot makes no sense, and bad-beard man (king's brother) has no real end game unless he's really lying to the public. "Let's all go to Earth" is fraught with all sorts of problems. And almost everything has been so predictable. I was under the impression that this melded with the larger SHIELD arc, but now I am thinking I could give this a miss and just pick up SHIELD and no worries. Is that right?

    Enterprise.

    S1E18 Rogue Planet : The story was all about some of the fauna, but the flora was the most astonishing. How did it live in the dark? At least throw us a bio-techno-babble line about it.

    S1E19 Acquisition : Weren't the Ferengi a surprise when the Next Generation crew met them?

    Question: Is sending a nice 'thank you' note one of the " Laws of Acquisition " ?
