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.

The Expanse S04

I was pretty happy that Amazon Prime had picked up The Expanse for a 4th season. It’s quite a compelling show, and one of the few science fiction shows still on TV. To be honest, it had been so long since I had watched the show or read the books that I needed a recap before diving in.

2015 in Books

It was an interesting reading year. I finally managed to read more than 100 books in a year. It was challenging to say the least. However, it kept me focused. From time to time, I didn’t read as much. I kept away from reading multiple books at once. I only did this from time to time when the book I was reading wasn’t that good.

2015 Jabra Sport Coach Earphones Review

After my last promo pair of earphones crapped out, and I decided that it was too tedious to go through a replacement policy, I went and finally got myself some Bluetooth earphones. I wanted good ones, but not too expensive. I settled on the Jabra Sport Coach Earphones. They were available locally for $105.
