Remember when TV shows weren’t all that great? Remember when you could watch an episode without having to have seen any of the previous ones? Yea.. those were crappy times. Rewatching Star Trek The Next Gen has been like that. Every episode I watch has almost nothing to do with the previous. I guess that’s how television evolves and hooks you these days. Makes you feel better for having kept up with the story and watched a series since episode one. Sure, it’s some time time consuming to catch up, but it allows you to see a bigger picture. Watching this show is like watching a bunch of little mini-stories and some of them aren’t even all that great. I think that when DS9 came out is when it really started to click with the television producers that having a big story is better than having a ton of really tiny ones. Something you can’t sum up in an hour is much more interesting.
Decided to take a break to catch up on Star Wars Clone Wars series. It’s so well animated and the story it it lays down for us is much better. I wonder if it means that I like Star Wars better than Star Trek.. hmm.. well I do have a lot more SW posters on my wall than ST. In fact I don’t think I have any ST posters up.. /gasp. Well, time to go enjoy my day of laziness. Gotta keep myself distracted until Wednesday.. UGH.
