The UnXplained has the who's who of the History Channel presenters, and I liked this last season especially the excavations in South America, gets me interested in archaeology, like, a month ago they found a hidden passageway at the Chavin Archaeological Site and named it the condor’s passageway, and inside were some 3000 year old relics.  Take a look:

Oh, I think I get it now! You can’t read or understand human languages! That’s why you keep thinking people are telling you you can’t have different opinions. And that also explains why you don’t like human TV shows.

How else could you explain your response to my message that had no mention of having opinions or judgement, just a question. It couldn’t possibly be you wanting to play the victim so that you can pretend “they” are out to get you because of your superior brain/race/gender/whatever..

Sorry, he is correct. You state your opinion here for good or worse and there is an inquisition that pops up and it's not constructive what comes out of it.

I watched last night an eps of Ancient Aliens where Giorgio counts down the10 most convincing objects that prove his claims. One an aluminium foot of a space ship - that he  mauled with his greasy mitts leaving his dna after the museum worker had carefully taken it from its box with rubber gloves as you do with all such objects... and the most convincing one one of those elongates skulls he had DNAed by a friendly sciientist who only declared it was out of place being found in Peru whereas the dna belonged to Europe opening up the possibility that there was emigration long before the Spaniards - Giorgio tried to get him to say it was extra terrestial but he remained silent, that did not stop Giorgio to go on and conclude that it was therefore clearly partly extraterrestial...so much for evidence...I could not stop laughing

I dont  hate Anson Mount - never heard of the guy before this show. His quiffed face just not fit in the trek universe. it jarrs.  Maybe some  kind of crime series or a Meghan Markle drama

Of course merc is allowed to post his opinion, but when he posts about his quiff aversion again and again and again, of course it leads to comments. Same thing if someone were to complain about nurse Chapel's hair color or the absence of squirrels in sci-fi shows week after week.

And now we all wonder if merc went prematurely bald.

The problem with shows that are part of popular franchises, i.e. Star Trek and Star Wars, they have huge fan bases, and people are very passionate about them.  So when they get royally screwed up by people that seem to have no real respect for a franchise's history of course people are going to get angry and then need to vent, to other like-minded people in the only real outllet they will get heard on...  Internet forums.  It's what they are there for isn't it?

I think SNW is poor and it could have been great.  It should have been great.  For God's sake, why not give Seth McFarlane a go at it?

I can rise above the quiff (not literally, I think it's too ludicrously high for that) but I get where Merc is coming from.  But insulting each other which seems to be happening here probably isn't the best idea.

2020.  Meh.

Re: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

Ok, i hate to pile on.
But im obliged to say this show does not take itself seriously, the glee AND animation thing really hit me wrong.

I did get a chuckle out of that but I like to think we all have a lot more in common than not, its just there is a lot of frustration being felt by a lot of passionate fans at the current state of Star Trek (and most other big franchises.)

lol lolz, so funny, the narrative on the UnXplained isn't nearly as bad as Ancient Aliens, but I guess William Shatner was the Captain of the Enterprise for so long that he HAS to push the alien narrative now...and one day Anson Mount.

Well, lolz, saying his quiffed face doesn't fit the trek universe and that it jarrs, is hilarious, and a pretty intense dislike which is the dictionary definition of hate, lol but I get where you're coming from, I felt the same way about the cast of Discovery.

He was the Black Bolt in Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, who gets his head blown up, if that makes you feel any better merc.

That sums up the man and his show exactly. I bet in his heart of hearts he thinks he is one or self-ids as one

Re: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

Quiff or not although it plays a significant role; Star Trek was always just state funding for one white man to go chase as many alien females as possible, the prime directive appears to be a rule of thumb for when it's OK to pursue it with individuals from young cultures and the time travelling aspect is so they can go back fix real mistakes made on this front.

Re: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

It had some issues... like M'Benga the assassin. Man I loved that character in TOS and now he's not only a bad dad he's a straight up killer... Why!?! Anyway, it's still more fun to watch than Discovery, but not as good as The Orville big_smile

ah I understand now why Anson as Pike has the old fashioned hair style. I f you watch the very very old Shatner Star Trek and the Pike eps thats him there, not old fashioned at the time. So just being "original"

Re: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

I used to have an old CRT tv that was past its best and distorted images near the top of the screen ie stretched them. That is how Pikes hair seems
