It was bizarrely melodramatic *and* old-fashioned. And, obviously, potentially harmful.
Also, like 90% of Picard The Series, it directly contradicts Roddenberry’s template of a future Earth that’s post-illness, post-scarcity, post-money. Like Rafi being poor and being “abandoned”, like *everyone* being an alcoholic or addict of some sort.
No spoilers but where was the help for the person in question? Seems like they would have got better help in today’s 21st century capitalist hellhole than the fully-automated luxury space communism that Roddenberry envisioned.
Just watching the Speakeasy episode and it only confirms that this show is THE BEST SUPERHERO SHOW EVER! It has drama, it has sadness but, most of all, it is RIDICULOUS FUN and always makes me giggle.
The Flash is too earnest, everyone is too amazing and perfect. Supergirl was kind of in-between LoT and Flash but LoT just rules.
To be an actor on it must be a fucking romp as where are you gonna be? When are you gonna be? Wild West? Viking? Bowling Alley Outside The Universe? Are you dead – doesn’t matter, you can still pop up. Did you leave the series – even less important. You’ll hop back in and out with not even one eyelid batted. It’s truly an ensemble show, a very over-used and mis-applied description but actually true here.
Watched this today – it’s a lovely film and has some deft twists and turns which I’m certainly not gonna ruin with spoilers. However, if you’re a fan of hunky werewolves, be prepared to do a little squeal at one point.
This is Adrian Greensmith’s first feature and he’s definitely deserving of a future in acting, if he desires one. That’s no to knock the rest of the cast who manage to dodge every teen drama cliches without being all poe-faced about it.
Today, I did some test shots with my new Godox V1 flash unit. It’s got a weird round head, a big, chunky rechargeable battery and is built like a tank. So far, I’m very pleased with it. Full on, it seems less garish than the average speedlite-type flash.
