I don’t know what my problem is but I have started watching Star Trek the next Generation.
Its on Netflix streaming and seems pretty harmless. The thing is I have never been into any of the Star Treks besides the original. It fees like I am cheating on the original series with it’s less interesting, uglier sister. It’s fun, it just doesn’t feel right.
But I find it is drawing me in. Sure, the captain does not pause dramatically four or five times during one sentence. And I miss someone yelling, “Dam* it Jim I’m a doctor not a (insert alternative profession here)” as if anyone ever has apologized for being a doctor. What you need someone to make sandwiches? Sounds complicated, wish I could help you but I am a lowly neurologist.
And the new series has problems too. Namely, seriously no cure for baldness 400 years from now?
So what happens to all the people that are currently getting results out of Propecia? Does it help you grow out a thick mound of hair that all falls out in clumps after 20 years of use? Or in the future do men want to be bald? Be serious.
We spent over a Billion a year on “hair loss treatments” (aka, not wanting to be a cue ball) in 2011.
I don’t think warp travel is going to change that trend. Also how was Will Wheaton so good as the lead in the movie Stand by Me so sappy in this?
How come there is so little Whoopi Goldberg? And did they seriously make the Golden Globe winner for The Color Purple wear purple more than other colors?
I think the real reason I like the show is it is a journey into the unknown.
That I can connect with. With my (autistic) son getting bigger every day, I really don’t know what our future is going to be like. Yesterday he wanted a piggy back ride into a store (which I gave him, cause it means I could control the pace we were moving at)
Just not sure where this life is leading but it seems to definitely be a road into the unknown.
What happens when he is 200lb and wants a ride on my back? What I need is a transporter room where I can beam him around. Or better yet a Klingon or Data that can carry him around. Uuuuu, and a holodeck, and a phazer and…
