Those scumbags at CBS just had all of the Star Trek episodes scrubbed from YouTube, now that they offer it via "paid" YouTube.  I hope those pigopolists don't really think I'm going to pay $2 per episode.

Meanwhile, there are a bunch of episodes of something called "Star Trek Continues" which is a kickstarted, fan-produced re-creation of the original series with the original characters, but with new scripts and new actors.  CBS apparently is ok with this because it is distributed free of charge.  They've done an incredible job of reproducing the 1960's style scenery, costumes, and special effects.  The writing and acting, while naturally not up to par with the original, is still surprisingly good considering it's the television equivalent of fanfic.

I am not a big fan of the show but I know it well enough so I checked the link.  I see that Grant Imahara plays Lt. Hikaru Sulu, Grant Imahara is more famously known as the guy who screams "FIVE! FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE!" in numerous Myth Buster shows.

I realize it would involve money but you, IG, could always get the Original Series (complete) on BluRay. That would, in the end, give you the ultimate freedom to view the shows. You can even save money and get the same set on DVD. Personally, I'd go with the DVD set. There's only so much "they" can do to improve the sound and video, and on a series that old... even less.

That's more likely what I'd do, just get the whole series rather than shell out $2 per episode.

I am sure you knew about this already but there is a lawsuit.

Sorry, I've been busy in meatspace. Was this what we were talking about?

No, but that looks interesting too.

I was talking about "Star Trek Continues" -- which appears to be a high-end fan version of Star Trek, blessed by the pigopolists who own the rights to the original show.

Yes, it's the hottest trend now.  No image hosting required.

Just a quick drive to Ticonderoga and you can spend your afternoon pretending you are on the USS Enterprise

He did some really good fan films of original Trek, then stopped mid-episode. Some people are blaming Paramount, but he did it before the whole fan film thing blew up.

Well I saw Rogue One. That's about all I can say... in the end, it doesn't matter much that this film was "dark." This is a film that does not have much to say, and spends >120min saying it.

Tyranny is bad, mm-kay, and sometimes rebels do bad things. The other 115 minutes are mindless action and the retroactive patching of a certain well-known plot hole.

Some bad camera work, to boot. Maybe they were trying to throw the viewer into the action and produce the feel that some of the scenes were hastily shot by an embedded war journalist? Regardless, I found it jarring. MTV used to do that on The Real World, right? Star Wars is not reality TV.

But it was entertaining enough...

My son saw it yesterday (he's 11). Gave it a 4 out of 10. Said the plot was confusing and the quality of the effects wasn't as good as last movie.

Well, resurrection is kind of impressive though.
