I honestly don't know how anyone get anything done aboard the Enterprise when holodecks exist. Only bad part of it is that any commissioned officer can open the door from the outside. I bet they did that to discourage people to get too wild while using it.

Star Trek: The Next Generation season 1-5 are the best seasons of The Star Trek Next Generation.
Seasons 6 & 7 are meh mostly with some exceptions like
season 6:Tapestry it is one of the best Picard episodes & it has one of the best Picard speeches(it's just one line)
season 7: All Good Things… the last episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation its an ok Picard episode but the last scene makes up for the the entire shit season 7.

Season 5 has is one of my favorite episodes like
The Inner Light:another great Picard episode,
The First Duty:A Wesley Crusher episode I like this one because as I had a personal experience similar to Wesley Crusher's situation in this episode(no one died but I could have got some jail time for my actions & I got away as my seniors helped me cover up my crimes)
Season 5 episode "I Borg" In my opinion this is the best episode of The Star Trek Next Generation,This should have been the conclusion of the Borg arc no more Borg episodes were needed after this (many people might disagree) because this episode is the exact opposite of the episode The Best of Both Worlds Picard resolves his personal conflict with the Borg & he resolves it without acts of violence,They prove that humanity has really evolved and that they are capable of peaceful coexistence even with the Borg as the Borg was Q's test to see if humanity had evolved or not. This episode also neutralizes the Borgs threat from the audience's perspective because we can no longer see them as an unstoppable force that has only one purpose because in this episode there true weakness is exposed that is: Resistance… is not futile

Anyone seen Apple Original Ravens Banquet? It's a fun little show about video game devs.

What are guys watching that's currently airing?

Finished season 2 of The Boys and it was pretty disappointing compared to the first.
Currently following along with Fargo S4 and there's that familiar Fargo feel but I'm just not buying the characters, especially the whole wise negro act.

Still waiting for Billions S5 to finish airing. What's the point of getting to stay home if I can't even watch muh soap operas?

 No.55965

>>55646
Watched through Billions a few times, and S5 is an utter shitstain that is barely even coherent. Every 3rd sentence is some stupid obscure reference also. All of the characters have lost any sense of actual complexity and become walking caricatures.

Can't say I'm expecting anything different when it comes back.

Agreed. The last episode that aired was just a peak meme tier reference, like a parody of the actual show. Definitely dropped in quality since season 1.

>>55966
Managed to find a relatively obscure show called Warrior currently airing. Despite the generic name, it's a really good kung-fu drama set in the US after the Civil War. Initially I thought it was going to be some woke non-sense, but the racism isn't just added on top like in Fargo, but it's an actual deep part of the characters. The fights are pretty good and I'm really enjoying the soundtrack.

I finished it last night, gotta say I really didn't like the ending, he got the succubus off the hook just with that dumb speech, come on.

>There's not a lot of progressive, politically correct messaging, but it's certainly still there in each and every episode

Yeah, they try harder and harder to make the husband look like the bad guy, while the wife who was having sex the kid's kidnapper was just a poor victim because misogyny.

I thought the show was ok but I won't bother with a new season.

I'm kinda tired of American tv shows, lately I've been watching Dekalog, I really enjoy the atmosphere and setting. Also about to start Berlin Alexanderplatz (1980 not the 2020 version). Do you wizzies happen to know any other 80s/90s European dramas with the same kind of tone?

You could give "The Prisoner" a try, though it's not for everybody.
>Some of my readers may wonder why I have bothered so much about a television series. But film is art, and I would go so far as to say that it is the Gesamtkunstwerk, the total work of art. It is capable of profundity, and of moving us in a way that no other art form can. And The Prisoner is serious film, and perhaps the greatest television series ever made. Like a great work of literature, it rewards us with something new each time we return to it.

The Prisoner is a 1967 British avant-garde social science fiction television series about an unnamed British intelligence agent who is abducted and imprisoned in a mysterious coastal village, where his captors try to find out why he abruptly resigned from his job.

Is Mando any good?

 No.56413

>>56411
The premise of the first season was alright. A trained supersoldier who follows a strict code of conduct is forced to hop from one system to the other, protecting a small creature that holds a mysterious power, having to shed off his old bounty hunter ways while learning about how working alone isn't always the best option, and gradually discovering the art of a long forgotten power that his cargo possesses. The first few episodes were like Kino No Tabi if you liked that premise, for lack of better comparison. It doesn't suffer from much of the flaws of NuWars and it actually acknowledges the oldschool Trade Federation / Techno Union assaults from The Clone Wars era instead of trying to retcon in new past adversaries. It's sympathetic to the Empire at times and also subtly paints the rebels as almost barbaric at times, much like with Saw Gerrera in Rogue One.

Unfortunately the ending of the first season suggests that the second part will be more of a group struggle, dispoving of the quiet comfy space travel instances shared by Mando and the creatuire (It's not actually Yoda despite plebs saying it's baby Yoda), but all in all it's a solid watch if you enjoyed the first 6 Star Wars films

I'm trying to get through episode two of Chernobyl, and I was already having trouble with the OC fictional female scientist character, but then she goes and says that the uranium hitting the water reservoirs could cause an, and I quote "2 - 4 megaton explosion". What the fuck? How could they let something like this into the show? That's tens of thousands of orders of magnitude off of what is actually possible. One hundred tons would be a high, VERY high estimate. Not two million.

Sons of Anarchy good show, probably as close to a 10/10 as I can expect to see in my life, bare long so I'll just list some good shit about it
-an entirely good cast, usually I'm surprised if I watch something that gives me just a singular lead character that I am genuinely invested in, but even the minor characters in Sons get far more attention than expected, in the beginning Tig is just the hitman who follows orders and also a necrophile, on paper a largely forgettable soldier type, but by the end he's got as much of a character arc as the main character, even Jax's dumbass 5 year old son gets developed
-on a similar note, Gemma specifically, as a general rule I am excessively bored by female characters, as their characterisation can just be summed up by 'I love my husband', can count the number of actually interesting female characters on one hand, and Gemma's one of them, probably just gonna be bad for me in the long term, because in everything else I watch now I'm just going to be wondering if Gemma can be good why this one can't be
-everything matters, there aren't any throwaway encounters, there's nobody that gets introduced in one episode and forgotten immediately afterwards, the shit they do has an effect, even when it goes well there's always a blowback of some sort, which goes a long way in making me retain interest in all of the story, there's not really a bad part, when they had to go to Ireland I figured it was just going to be a get in get out situation, but they had all sorts of shit they had to unpack afterwards
-accordingly, the dialogue is meaningful, back in primary school you'd have to read a page long document and then answer a bunch of questions about it, but 90% of the stuff you read doesn't matter, that's how it feels with most shit out there, but in Sons there isn't really an instance where I felt like I just wanted them to get on it, the dialogue's actually meaningful, and honestly I just like listening to them negotiate business deals and that
-more or less from the get go there's a conflict between Clay, the gunboat diplomat old president, and Jax, the young VP who likes to avoid killing people if he can help it, over time Jax does more extreme shit but it was always proportional, I was kind of predicting that eventually Jax was just become Clay, because that's what happens in a story like that, but he didn't, he did some pretty mental shit, like gouging out Moses' eye and cutting his fingers in revenge for Bobby, but it was always proportional, only time he does it is because Clay was a retarded boomer who got him into deep shit, not saying it's a bad direction, just an observation
-yeah it's good

So, Walt says that Hank's name is Hank and that the nazis should let him go because of that, and his offering. The nazis ask for Hank's opinion on this. By replying that his name is Isaac Schrader instead of Hank Schrader, he is telling the nazis, through biblical allusion, that he wishes to be sacrificed to God (his ideals) rather than to be saved.

The Witcher on Netflix.
Overall I liked it because it has a determinism message but all the scenes with Yennefer were really unnecessary

 No.57831

Just finished binging all 4 seasons of "La casa de papel". It's on Netflix and initially I was put off by the generic sounding name "Money Heist", but holy shit is it good. It's like the best part of every heist movie, condensed into a series with really intense scenarios each episode and great characters.

There's an English dub, but it's much better in original Spanish.

Re-watching Succession while the current series is airing. Literally every single character is a cunt in their own unique way, which I find kinda fun. The script feels very "politician speak". The character dialogue is heavily manipulative: "Yea, I think you made a good point, but", "I agree with you, but", "That's a good idea, but" etc.

If you're interested in a family scheming, backstabbing, playing social politics to try and gain power and influence in a global media company, I recommend it.

Just don't expect to actually like any of the characters.

 No.59968

>>59953
I like the way they talk, full of innuendos and zany comebacks. It has a really cool flow to it that I can't explain. Even something completely banal like "Going home for a shit, shower and a shave".

Compared to something like Billions, another show about rich people, the characters are scheming, manipulative, but a lot less cartoon-ish. They're not epic masterminds or talk casually in "wise" parables and metaphors, they're very flawed, insecure people that regularly backstab each other with no real thought put into it.

It’s insane that that many new shows debut every year, and most of them don’t make it to a season 2.
I couldn’t get past an episode or two of Mythic Quest because it was too detached from what tech work is actually like. Maybe making games is different; I don’t know.
The Great was surprisingly good, but pretty vapid. It’s mostly carried by the acting and set design; if you have a soft spot for historical fiction or period dramas you’ll like it.
>>51525
IIRC it was developed by the upper classes to show they were superior to normal people.

>cancelled after two seasons
Every time I REALLY like something rather than just finding it watchable, it gets cancelled. The Romanoffs was amazing (don’t start with the first episode if lefty politics bothers you), and it didn’t even get a second season. The last episode would have won awards if they’d added some filler and released it as a movie.

I just finished watching Star Trek TOS "Metamorphosis". Similar premise to a lot of different episodes, but as always, a great score and an interesting turn of events. The music was honestly my favorite part of the episode. So moving. The music is one of the reasons why I love TOS in the first place. It's surprisingly emotional. And of course, Cpt. Kirk always makes me appreciate him with his demands. I love the contrast between him and Picard. Picard is more of a diplomat and Kirk is much more keen on demanding. It's by far my favorite thing about him. He just does NOT take bullshit. On the other hand, that's a huge flaw of his. Thankfully, the show finally recognizes it when Bones points it out. I'm really glad he did too since I think Kirk can be a good diplomat as well. He's just too much of a soldier who sees lots of action to think of like one most of the times. The ending of the episode got the crew nowhere, but it was touching nonetheless. Things did not change from the beginning. In fact, I would say Kirk was saved by the bell in this episode.

Overall, good memorable episode. It's definitely one of the more memorable ones like the first episode of season 2 and the episode, "This Side Of Paradise", which is by far my favorite TOS episode to date. That one evokes thoughts of a simpler, happier, life.
