“Hearing a constant laugh track on the Enterprise-D bridge is distinctly surreal. Someone really should take season two of TNG and add a laugh track just to see if it improves things.”
“The first season of Daredevil, currently streaming on Netflix, delivers a great cast, great action, great cinematography, and great direction, all of which come together to make a show that is, quite simply, great.”
“This magical girl anime is different from all the others, in that there are no girls in it.”
“It looks like the guy who cleans the Enterprise toilets has the week off, so congratulations, Uhura, you are now in charge!”
“Odds are, we’re going to be waiting at least three years or so before any of this matters.”
“Unfortunately, we’re not going to find out how they did the saucer separation trick, or how they made that guy’s head explode in ‘Conspiracy’, or anything else cool that happened in the first season of TNG.”
“As it turns out, ‘The Tholian Web’, one of the stronger episodes of the original series’ third season, was actually a Mirror Universe episode all along. We just didn’t know it until 2005.”
“I guess with the aqua-shuttle and bass boat, putting Kirk and Spock in speedos was not in the budget this week.”
“Alas, all of this development was rendered moot afterward. This is because, like Star Trek: Voyager, Andromeda basically jettisoned its premise by its second season and was content with simply being an action show, with an ineffectual captain to boot.”
"Brannon Braga calls this one 'a royal, steaming stinker'. And when the guy who wrote the episode says that, it's pretty hard to disagree."
“And this is how a storyline begun in one of the most legendary episodes of the original series goes out in a hail of bad comedy.”
“Gordon Ramsay’s show, after seven seasons, has become a highly processed, overly salty, homogeneous mess.”
“Nothing in the later episodes makes me want to retcon my original views. The series retained its early strengths and stuck to the landing.”
“The mid-season premiere of Agents of SHIELD is almost upon us, so here’s a quick recap of season two so far. If you haven’t been keeping up with the show, these are all the people, places, and things you’ll need to know to jump right back in.”
“It’s like Star Trek, except the entire cast is Spock.”
"Family Ties relied a bit more on dramatic beats than most sitcoms of the day, leading to a proliferation of what might be called “very special episodes” today, though they generally weren’t billed that way at the time. But “Say Uncle” definitely qualifies. So join me now for a look back at a very special Family Ties, wherein very special guest star Tom Hanks struggles with the dark demons of alcoholism."
