Star Trek: Picard S01E03-04

I’m not sure exactly why, but I kinda saved ep 3 so that I could watch two episodes at the same time. Was it a shock that Picard is no longer welcome to the top brass of Starfleet? I guess it’s part of the premise of the show.

His Dark Materials (HBO, BBC)

I’m not sure why, but I’ve never really been a fan of the HDM movies. They felt kind of bad. I know that I’ve watched them but I actually don’t remember much of the story. I remember daemons and that kids were involved in some fashion.

Chappie Movie Review

While the name of this movie is initially quite off-putting, it’s a lot better than that. The great part of the movie is to see Ninja and YoLandi Visser in a title role. However, they are playing quite stupid characters, especially YoLandi’s reasoning for kidnapping the lead programmer of the Scout police robots.

2014 in Books

2013 in books was lost due to a HD malfunction, but I have been recording the books that I read on my other computer. I had my ups and downs in reading, and I did spend time rereading books that I had already read before. I was able to find most of Roberto Bolano’s novels in epub format, which is simply great. The Peripheral was definitely a great read from William Gibson.

We’re back for another season of Survivor. This isn’t the first time that I’ve seen this on television, but it will be interesting to see what will happen and how long the tribes will stay distinct. There are three groups, brains, beauty and brawn.

Survivor Caramoan: Fans Vs Favorites Zipping Over the Cuckoo’s Nest S26E10 (CBS)

Survivor Caramoan Title, Via Wikipedia

Back at camp, everyone has a meeting except the tribe members at the bottom. Stealth R Us have an executive meeting. They think that Malcolm, Reynolds and Eddie don’t have an idol anymore, so they will split the vote. After they make a S-R-Us cheer, Cochran motions to the camera that they are all insane. I agree.
