I actively and strongly detest Trump, and think the GOP is behaving very shamefully, but I also actively dislike crazy people on the left - just putting that out there to give you an idea of my political inclination. Read more

That's DS9 had great writing, and Discovery doesn't. I guess it really is that simple.

Can't believe no one else mentioned the BMW CS! Maybe there's a parallel universe out there where modern BMW's look like that instead of buck toothed monsters...

Maybe they could mix Eckstein’s and Dawson’s voice together or something? So many questions indeed, but also so many possibilities!!

I’m beating a dead horse at this point, but what a shame that everything on this show is so bleak and depressing. They travel 930 years in the future, and guess what, everyone is mean and selfish. Read more

The summers used to be average, and now there’s a few scorching heat waves every year. Oh and the leaves take forever to fall off the trees, so now fall starts in November instead of Read more
