  2. Yeah, agreed. It's fundamentally a military organisation. It has military discipline (not that there's much of it on Discovery!). Starfleet Academy is basically Space West Point. TILLY even implausibly runs a half-marathon in record time as part of some physical fitness requirement. Starfleet is the space navy and the starships we're most familiar with are HMS Endeavour in space.
  3. I can't believe that's the first thing I've instinctively tried to neg since they removed negs.
  4. I'd forgotten that this happens in Discovery. So good. (Bad) I'm gonna enjoy reading these reviews, like being reminded of a bad dream.
  5. You mean only season 4 was shot digitally. The rest was on 35mm film which is plenty HD! It may not have been broadcast in HD before then but it was always being produced and transferred to video that way. I think the reason the early seasons look so grainy is that we're seeing the original early-2000s telecine - even that technology has improved a lot in the intervening years.
  6. Just grabbed this myself and spent the last hour or so wandering around London. It's amazing! The macro-level geography isn't up to much but the amount of detail they've put into small areas is really impressive. When I went past the Embankment I thought "hmm, I wonder if I go up here have they put in the Scotland Yard spinny sign?" They have, but it doesn't spin. Loads of shops I didn't bother venturing inside in Diagon Alley too. Looking forward to exploring a bit more, but I might have to be a bit less thorough. Don't really have much interest in Harry Potter, but I love the effort that's gone into this. I love a high quality fan creation.
  7. Hahaha. I did have a snigger when I looked at an episode list to remind myself which one Carbon Creek was, and saw what you had coming up next. Tbh I don't mind those Phlox episodes as much as some do though!
  8. Yessss, watch it all, make me doubly jealous. Even the bad episodes are better than anything Discovery can offer.
  9. I'm quite jealous of Thor now. I feel like I should emulate him by going through, say, the early seasons of DS9 or the Ferengi comedy episodes that I skipped but it wouldn't be the same.
  10. I watched Enterprise in response to Discovery being so unspeakably awful. I reasoned it couldn't possibly be as bad as that. And I loved it! I think I needed the huge gap between Voyager ending and now - and a reminder of how bad things could be - before I was able to properly appreciate it. I definitely recommend going in. It's worthwhile. My original plan was to follow this episode guide and only watch the 3s and 4s: http://www.letswatchstartrek.com/ent-episode-guide/ However I decided I'd watch the first ten or so regardless just to get to know the characters, and I quickly realised that even the "bad" episodes were pretty good so I might as well watch the whole thing. My decision was further vindicated when an episode this guy gives a 1 rating to, "Dear Doctor", turned out to be one of my favourites. I think that's a Marmite episode though!
  11. I'm looking forward to seeing you all hate-watching it more than the series itself.
