  1. What was the deal with the corrosive romulan blood (or did I miss something?) that inadvertently killed the girl (I think it caused the weapon to explode). I can't recall that being a factor before which suggests that perhaps it was another substance that looked really nasty.
  2. The weird thing with Picard's age is that he was meant to be 59 at Encounter at Farpoint (Stewart was 47 at the time). That seems pretty old, setting him closer to Stewart's age 50 begin with would have made more story sense. Apparently he was 29 when he was captain of the Stargazer - that's a lot of time between that and the Enterprise.
  3. Definitely, I think that picture just shows that they had a difficult job to start with. Also can't believe he's 70. The Next Gen cast are getting old. You always think of those guys as the young guys compared with the TOS crew.
  4. The look of Data wasn't perfect in this (and the Nemesis uniform looked mega cheap) but having seen a set photo, it's clear they had an uphill struggle trying to return Spiner to Nemesis or even TNG appearance. I actually thought the painting Data looked much better than the card playing Data. In general though, Data did to some extent remind me of the Kryton issue of new Red Dwarfs.
  5. Yeah, it was a bit uneven really and you can tell the budget had pretty much been eliminated. I do feel for the producers in that regard, apparently for any extra appearances (so any non Legends actor appearing in the Legends episode) they get a episode fee which is greater than their usual episode fee. It must eat up the budget quickly and explains why in these crossovers people appear and disappear randomly and characters you think would turn up end up being AWOL. As people have mentioned, the fight scenes really did border on horrendous and clearly showed that there really was not the budget available to do them properly. Episode 5 was a strange conclusion, almost an epilogue but was enhanced by the presence of some of the Legend actors and humour. Would be nice for the Legends to take the lead in a crossover at some point.
  6. Oh dear. I thought it got progressively worse during the first three episodes to the point I'm having to hype myself up about the ending. Not good that it apparently didn't recover much in the way of quality.
  7. True, but released way behind the US at the start of the next season of Discovery. They have never been day and date.
  8. I think the problem was, the crossover got worse with each of the episodes.
  9. In Norwich, near one of the residential streets there is a small Blockbusters store which closed, well, when all the stores closed. And it has just stood there empty and you have to wonder who owns it? Surely even a minimal rent would be better than having an empty space all these years. I don't understand it, presumably insurance will still need to be paid on it, perhaps business rates?

    Nintendo Switch

    Yep, like the look of that but £40!
  11. Breaking Bad would be a possibility. You're right though, most shows both go on too long and, probably as a result, do not go out on top.
  12. Perhaps, although it does mean an obvious replacement for Hamilton is gone if he hangs up his boots or heads to Ferrari for a final hurrah.
  13. We don't think an entire reboot is likely then? Go back to Episode 4 and recast the entire thing?
  14. Pretty much. Buy physical early. If you don't like sell. If you do like retain until cheap digital availible and then sell physical.
  15. I love Rekt. Very addictive. But yes, lots of hard crashes with me as well.
  16. Mainly based on your previous predictions in this thread. On a general level it seems strange for Disney to be a promoting an all you can eat Disney service and then start to remove Disney content from it. Wasn't the purchase of Fox partly due to the copious catalogue titles which could be used to bolster Disney+?
  17. Are you saying the films will not be availible in HD if you subscribe to Disney+?
  18. Right, so things like archive catologue titles will potentially only be availible on Disney+. I can see that happening. What's harder to see is why said titles would exit Disney+ though. If the idea is to generate profit through sustained subscriptions to that platform then removing content would be a questionable strategy. Of course, given things like Die Hard have already sold millions of DVDs and are widely availible in a piratable digital format it is hard to see any attempt by Disney to 'bury' these titles being successful.
  19. Are you saying that catologue titles will at some point only be availible through Disney+ or that they will at some point be removed from Disney+?
  20. Is this the same Disney that has just released an extremely extensive selection of its back catalogue through Disney +?

    Nintendo Switch Lite

    This is a good solution for the original switch but definitely makes it less portable. In comparison the Switch Lite can just about fit in a large coat pocket.
  22. Can we use this thread to chart every physical release of Skywalker. You know, the standard DVD, Blu Ray, Blu Ray 3D, 4K, retailer exclusive cover edition, boxed set with episodes 7-9, complete box set with eps 1-9, eventual extended edition, special edition where someone fires first, special extended complete Star Wars box set edition with the Christmas special, extra special box set edition in the shape of Vader's mask with a exclusive 10 minute behind the scenes look at the design of Ray's lightsaber. You know, all the standard releases which are invariably going to happen with any big release.
  23. Most anticlimactic bollock betting contest ever.
