The GardenDespatches from The Satyrs’ Forest

Mx Tynehorne’s link roundup, volume XXVII

I started watching Star Trek: The Next Generation recently — starting at season three, of course, as i was repeatedly advised — and i’m positively kicking myself for not doing it earlier. This is bloody good television (except Wesley, but i imagine they give up and throw him out the airlock at some point), and only now do i realise how often i have stood on the shoulders of giants without even knowing it…

(Data’s the best character. Obviously. He’s literally me™.)

    Afterthought on the Star Trek pre-tangent: My favourite episode so far, albeit that i’m only ten in so far, has to be “The Survivors”, where the crew discover a planet made completely barren by war… except for one old couple. Great twist, and our Character Actor Of The Week does a fantastic job in his role, even if Troi is as useless as ever.

    Agh, scratch that second “so far”. The perils of writing blog comments at 11 in the evening!
