Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done #4 – Mar 15, 2020

It’s Week 4 of where I just talk about all the bits and pieces of the week which haven’t (and probably won’t) make it into their own articles. And since I haven’t posted anything on this blog since the last such post, it seems like that includes everything this week.  My intention is to do this every week as a form of logging and journaling, but we’ll see how that goes.

47 Movie Blogs #17 – The Mismarketed, the Miscategorized, and the Mistitled

I think this is a tough one for me.  We’ve all seen movies that have disappointed us, but how often can I truly say that the trailer or the promotional strategy was genuinely misleading, and not just making the film look better than it was?  Continue reading 47 Movie Blogs #17 – The Mismarketed, the Miscategorized, and the Mistitled

47 Movie Blogs #8 – Thirteen Best Star Trek Movies

The title is a bit of a joke, of course.  There are only 13 Star Trek films.  At least, if you only count the official films produced by the rights-holders, and not fan works.  Then there’s lots more.

Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Seven Summary

It’s taken me a while to get to it, but here at last is the summary of the seventh and final season of Star Trek:  The Next Generation.   It’s a season that manages to leave a good taste in the mouth mostly because the finale, All Good Things, is so outstandingly enjoyable that it almost manages to wipe away the memory of all the sub-par episodes of the year.  But then you’re like, “Oh yeah, Masks, and Sub Rosa, and that one with the train on the holodeck….  And so it goes.

Star Trek: The Next Generation – All Good Things [7.25]

Picard finds himself mysteriously moving back and forth between three different eras of his life:  the day when he first came aboard the Enterprise as Captain, far future when he is long-retired, and the “present day.”  In all three time frames he becomes aware of a mysterious anomaly in space that threatens to destroy the universe.  He is also told by Q that he must solve this mystery in order to prove that humanity is worthy to exist.  Continue reading Star Trek: The Next Generation – All Good Things [7.25]

Star Trek: The Next Generation – Preemptive Strike [7.24]

Ro, now a lieutenant with advanced tactical training, is tasked to infiltrate the Maquis, whose aggressive actions are threatening to plunge the Federation and the Cardassians back into war.  However, Ro grows sympathetic to the Maquis cause–attempting to protect their way of life from Cardassian harassment after their colony was relegated by treaty to the demilitarized zone.  Ro grows particularly close to a Maquis leader called Macius, and after he is killed she betrays the Enterprise and warns the Maquis of an operation to capture them.

Which Season of Star Trek: The Next Generation was the best?

I am nearly at the end of my review of the entirely of Star Trek: The Next Generation, something I’ve been doing for several years now.  Occasionally, in conversation with others about the series, the question of which season of the show (it had seven) was the best in terms of overall quality?  I have decided to find out.
