i actually do want this to be good. with the exception of farscape, firefly and maybe the more recent expanse if we're stretching it, existing tv space operas are either too dated, too corny, too shit or some kind of a mix of that. so there's enough room to do something cool within this genre and it looks like it's got the necessary budget at least. that lead actress is indeed pretty terrible and probably like 30% of the running time it'll be busy ticking all the start trek references boxes and staying "true to star trek roots" for reddit to wank over. but whatever, i thought it's scheduled for 2022 or something, but it's out in a few days so there's no point in preemptively shitting on it i guess. CANT WAIT TILL THEY REVEAL THE NAME OF THE BOOM OPERATOR FOR THE PILOT ANYWAY.

While shlocky and badly written at times, I can appreciate it as a very slick looking show and having classic sci-fi tropes and went all epic and crazy. Captain Pike was on point and I want a show abo

TNG has to be the best looking and most aesthetically pleasing sci-fi show there is. The visual design is just spot on and the look has aged very well.

DS9 on the other hand looks like a kids game show set where you have to run around and find hidden items and avoid having "green goo" dumped on your head for being the losing team.

The boom operator looks promising, I'm also missing a space opera in my life atm.

yeah the Expanse doesn't do it for me (though I keep watching it), Dark Matter is fun but a little too goofy to be invested in emotionally, and Killjoys is just terrible. Crossing my fingers that this is good otherwise it's back to rewatching Farscape, Babylon 5, DS9, and BSG in rotation forever.

I'm trying to be optimistic about this show, but what I've seen so far looks almost identical to the Abrams movies. I hope the writers don't waste the diverse cast that they have by using them as nothing more than action scene props

rewatching Farscape

 

really loved this show- especially zhann. i loved the episode where she gets nude in front of an alien and he's so embarrassed and offended at the same time. she just smiles and asks gently "is nudity a taboo in your culture?"

 

i think i only managed to watch season 1 only.

oh man season 1 is by far the worst season of that show. It only keeps getting more and more amazing

but doesn't zhann leave (or die) at some point? i stopped watching around then but i don't recall why (either work at the time got too much or did some traveling). i do remember being really impressed with the show despite some hesitation going into it. i even became fond of pilot and his connection with moya

it's actually better than that. the actress who played her was apparently really stupid and thought that paint is somehow damaging her health and  skin and so she quit, they had to kill her off in the script.

Is that why she left the show? Wow. Never knew.

 

Aeryn Sunn (or however you spell it) was always great. And always gorgeous.

 

But I take issue with Season 1 being the worst, I liked it a lot. 2 was probably best, 3 went pretty over the top (a little too much imo) and 4 was about like 3 but seemed to drag.

 

 

 

Oh and I still think Discovery is going to suck. I'm gonna be most curious to see how terrible their pirating problem is going to be, really.

Season 1 seemed to have the most puppetry, which was what I loved about that concept.

really? hehe virginia hey does look like one of those women who's so hot you know she has to be crazy or comes with a serious caveat: like sharon stone is very accident prone or anne heche believing she's god

 

i remember there was a video with a guy who came up with some kind of equation: the hotter a woman became, the more likely she was absolutely nuts

It's a positive linear correlation, I believe.

I mean when I say season 1 was the worst, that just means compared to the rest of the show - it was still very good.

 

IIRC the body paint was actually making Hey ill, which is why near the end of her tenure she was wearing less and less revealing outfits. I think she was also sick of shaving her head.

 

Anyway top show all around
