    Has anyone watched The Orville yet?

    Problem is Star Trek isn't really all that Star Trek these days. The recent movies at the very least abandoned SciFi and went full action-adventure WITH SPACESHIPS. Can't speak for the new series, as I am not willing to pay for another service to watch it.

    Brexit.

    And thanks to pulling a leadership vote prematurely, the Conservatives can't replace her for a while now. Also, even ignoring WTO rules, treating Ireland differently from the rest of the EU will not help any future deals.

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    A lot of the resentment that spilled over into the protests in Ferguson, MO had to do with the police constantly issuing citations for long grass, jay-walking, minor traffic or vehicle maintenance (broken lights), etc. Fees and fines from the mostly African American residents, written up by the...

    British Irish Dialect Quiz

    The US version put me right back home in the north Pacific coast, although I had to think back on one or two since I have picked up a few different bits from Arkansas and Ohio in the time since.

    It's also in the Shows You Love But Hate A Main Character thread.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Great album, but PledgeMusic has turned the preorders into a clusterfuck. Not just Ladytron, but evey project in the shipping phase has been caught up in their financial/contract problems. I'm glad I only ordered a CD, and that included a flac copy of the album. And it is brilliant.

    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    So looking at policies, is it helpful to consider effectiveness? How successful has Sanders been at enacting or shaping legislation? Has his conscious decision to remain outside of the Democratic Party helped or hurt his ability to enact policy? Especially given our current political climate...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    Thing is, I did an internship at a Confederate museum (it was an accident). I have heard all the bullshit about body servants being essentially Confederate soldiers and the loyal slave mythology. I have heard pleanty of apologists for Nathan Bedford Forest and the early Klan. But I had never...

    netflix Jessica Jones And The Punisher Cancelled

    And comic book costumes often look silly in live action. Aquaman had some very silly looks, especially Black Manta, who was faithful to the comics but ended up looking like a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Villain of the Week. The MCU approach to costumes has been more subtle and looks much better...

    netflix Jessica Jones And The Punisher Cancelled

    They are acquiring a stake in Hulu as part of the Fox deal. It would make more sense to put the mature content there and keep the Disney+ for PG and under. Hulu has expressed interest in picking up the Netflix series.

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    Did he seriously say that former slaves "borrowed their former masters' robes and horses and rode through the night to frighten some evil doer"? Really? The bar for the stupidest thing I have ever heard is getting pretty high, but that's possibly a new record. And a few years back, I did...

    Jar Jar Binks Bullied To Near Suicide

    I never liked the prequels, but I never blamed the actors, and I can't understand the hate directed at especially the ones who had their break-out roles in the series. Jar Jar Binks was WRITTEN as an annoying character, and the actor delivered the performance that the director wanted. Young...
