A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

As long as it's not another Deep Space 9 catastrophe.

You know Hollywood, they always think they can make some better each time around.   :lol:

They can't invent new ideas so they keep repackaging the old. Most are far worse than the original. The least bad is still forgettable, with the splendid exception of Battlestar Galactica. (Its prequel, not so much.)

MacGuyver is also returning. Shoulder-length hair? Surfer-dude looks? Expect one season.

Had it not been for one end of that wormhole being so close to Bajor, that entire sorry bunch would never have merited Star Fleet attention to begin with. Absolutely worthless all around (with Louise Fletcher perfect as the least likable cast member). Casting and story lines did them in: stay away from Bajor they were pretty good (especially the solar sailing episode).

As for TV's newest reboot: expect lots of special effects and blitzkrieg-style editing trying to make up for relentlessly PC scripts. At least two queers per show, white guys are the principal villains and Earth is the predator, it's just taking us time to self-identify to all that....

I can envision a story line on par with Voyage to the bottom of the sea and special effects, where every encounter with a sea monster guarantees a family pack of 4th of July sparklers be set off behind a bank of ENIAC computers.
Actual story lines have been replaced by CGI, where one geek with an Apple has replaced a writing staff of 12.

Just watched the final episode of Castle, the Firefly star Nathan Fillion was castrated in the first scene and began receiving daily injections of estrogen and led around by a frail 90lb model.
I see a gay Superman on the horizon, count on it.

I've no doubt that's already written for next season on the current fag channel, CW I think.

Howzabout the interracial lesbian hotties in the all-nude TARGET GIRLS.

I know, I know. I just can't work up a good punch line about the fags.

Nathan Fillion as the new captain?  :confused:

That's actually an excellent choice, but they better start the testosterone treatments now.
After 8 years of estrogen injections and a castration, they have a serious battle ahead.

Sometimes I wonder why we buy you the freaking comic and all you do is color over it.

These people get salary increases greater than what many CPF members make in a year, above and beyond a STARTING salary so grotesque they can't help but become addicted to keeping that cash-cow coming.

Yes, Fillion softened from FIREFLY and SERENITY. For what they were paying him, I'd stand there in a pink tutu or adult diaper just like any other TV clown. But that does not mean he himself became soft or is incapable as an actor of creating a believable James Tiberius Egotrip.

Kemo sabe, there are only a scant handful of TV productions I would dare call worth the money to buy on DVD, and the TV run and its movie follow-up are TERRIFIC as science fiction meets western. Josh Whedon wrote/produced this and Nathan Fillion is splendid, better than great. This has a rare and beautiful thing---it's science fiction with a true heart.

Try here. The war segment opening explains the war the Browncoats lost.
