After allllllll this time, I finally subscribed to CraveTV — which is an on-demand service in Canada that actually carries Star Trek Discovery. Finally, I get to see this show for myself. I saw the first four episodes over the weekend, and what do I think?
I don’t play any Star Wars games, and I don’t even own a Playstation, but the latest PS4 commercial for the Star Wars Battlefronts 2 game blows me away! It’s cute. It’s funny. It’s weirdly romantic. It’s brilliant!
The best part? It actually makes me want to play this game.
Being waylaid for a couple of weeks doesn’t mean I haven’t been following news on STO. In fact, when you’re stuck in bed for the better part of two weeks, reading up on news online is pretty much the only reliable entertainment you get!
A few things were announced in the last couple of weeks… some of which are controversial and some are frankly troubling.
A couple of weeks ago I finally caught Rogue One on Netflix, and the crazy thing is I liked it so much I find myself drawn back to Star Wars once more…. after God knows how long.
A couple of months ago I did a post that touched upon the ongoing Star Trek vs Star Wars fan debate, although my focus wasn’t about the debate at all. Today, for shits and giggles I just wanted to put together a list of 5 things that each of the franchise does better than the other. Because I personally find it hilariously dumb, you can rest assured that this won’t be one of those silly discussions that try to argue how turbolasers are more powerful than phasers.
I mentioned at one point that I am a reverse-Anime-convert: I grew up on anime, but grew out of it. The modern anime stories and concepts (and character designs) don’t appeal to me, but even then I’ve heard hype about this one: Attack on Titan, a manga by Hajime Isayama which has been adapted to an anime TV series. I’ve just been watching Series/Season 1, so this review is based on only that.
Star Trek turns 50 this week! (Whether the actual date is today or on Thursday depends on which side of the 49th Parallel you live on….)
