    All Good Things "Star Trek"

    Guys, the ending of ST:D S2 had me confused: ** SPOILERS BELOW ** Why did the Discovery need to follow Burnham into the future, when Control-Leyland was destroyed aboard the Discovery and Section 31's fleet is destroyed as well? Wasn't that the whole point of Discovery fleeing? To escape Control-Leyland and Section 31?
  2. Because this thread is totally designed to provoke that "attitude": "WP: Nationals are DC's favorite team, Post poll finds, as Redskins' popularity plummets." The thread designed to get a rise out of Skins fans, but by ****ily calling the Nats "DC's favorite team", it also gets a rise out of Caps, Wizards, Terps, Hoyas, Orioles, and DC United fans as well. Again its a stupid, knee-jerk reaction thread that shouldn't have been started in the first place.
  3. And for the record, I don't hate the Nats. But I am beginning to hate their fans. Wow are they stupid.
  4. How old are most of the posters on theses boards? Under the age of 18? How can you compare the accomplishment of the Montreal the Washington Nationals, who just came in to town 15 years ago, with the accomplishment of the legendary Washington Capitals, who have been here for a whopping 45 years? And hockey is a thousand times the game baseball is -- fast, highly skilled game, with plenty of hitting and physicality, and plenty of scoring too (which makes it superior to soccer). Baseball is 90% chewing tobbaco and sitting on the pine scratching your crown jewels. It. Is. BORING. There is no comparison between the two games for anyone with a pulse. The Capitals are loaded with exciting players fans will be talking about for decades to come -- Ovechkin, Backstrom, Holtby, big Tom Wilson, Carlson, Kuznetsov, Oshie, Vrana. These guys are all legends or soon-to-be legends. Other than Strasburg, who gives a damn about any of the players on the Nats. They'll be forgotten in a couple of years. Again this thread was started by some over caffeinated 18 year old with no clue about DC's true sport history.
  5. Frozen 2. Grade: F. Wow...just...WOW. One of the worst movies I've seen in a couple of years. Now, bad movies are being pumped out all the time, but "Frozen" is a Disney/Pixar flagship franchise, just like the Incredibles, Toy Story etc. Marketing campaign behind it was huge, expectations were huge, but the movie is just TERRIBLE. Weak, confusing story, humor that falls flat throughout the entire film (NO ONE in a packed theater was laughing), and the music is utterly forgettable. This is to Pixar what Fallout 76 was to Bethesda -- a huge failure that they are going to have a hard time living down. Forget impeaching Donald Trump. Impeach John Lasseter. What a disaster.
  6. The relationships between DC residents and the Caps is very, VERY special, something the Nationals will likely never surpass. Nothing against the Nats, but its just like saying the Bruins will rival the popularity of the Red Sox in Boston. Never going to happen.

    Where was Pike introduced before? Wasn't he in Star Trek: Into Darkness as Kirk's mentor (then he dies)?

    Boy is my face red...Episodes 7 and 8 were some of the best things I've seen on TV this year. Wow the cast of this show is UNBELIEVABLE. Even supporting cast members like Anthony Rapp (Stamets) and Mary Wiseman (Tilly) are so good they could carry the show themselves. Then when you get to Martin-Green (Burnham), Mount (Pike) and Peck (Spock), well, this might be the strongest cast a Star Trek show has had, ever. Including TOS, which was, of course, legendary.

    I've been watching ST:D S2 on Blu ray...6 episodes's this thing wake up? Honestly the first episodes were pretty boring, other than the stuff that happened to Tilly and the hints at Spock.

    Vrana really reminds me of Peter Bondra. Can you imagine OV and Bondra on the same team?
  11. Missing Link. Surprisingly good, animation is terrific. Somewhere between a B+ and an A-.

    I was in the airport today and saw a pic of Jeff Beck on some guitar mag. Dude bears an uncanny resemblance to Florida Gators coach Steve Spurrier these days. Just one of those stupid things you notice

    2019 - 20 Washington Capitals Thread

    I went to school in Montreal, Canada way back in the early 90s. Cherry had just joined "Hockey Night in Canada", and racism was his whole selling point. In particular he HATED French Canadiens players (jealousy? because for a time, with players like Henri Richard, Guy LaFleur and Mario Lemieux, French-speaking Canada produced some of the best players in the league). He would go out of his way, every time he talked about Canadien goalie Patrick Roy, to call him Patrick "Roy" (as in Roy Rogers), when the correct, French pronounciation is Patrick "Rwah". This used to irritate Franch Canadien hockey fans no end. I remember listening to call in shows in Montreal where Quebecers were calling for the guy's head. No surprise that his act hasn't changed years later. EDIT: Back to the Caps, hugely frustrating loss tonight. For most of the game, Caps made Arizona look like an AHL team, except for 3 lapses that ultimately cost them.

    Plus Kempny's health, yeah.
  15. A- for Castlevania Season 2. Not a movie I know, but the BR/DVD of Season 2 has just come out, and its a doozy. Best thing about the show is the huge array of personalities introduced in Season 2, from the wisecracking Trevor Belmont to the vampire seductress Carmilla -- a woman as beautiful as Amber Heard, as fast as Usain Bolt, and as strong as Hercules (while looking extremely feminine -- don't worry, no bodybuilder muscles here). For those of you let down by GOT, this show is your tonic.
