God DAMN riker is a badass. Hot damn I love this show #tngwatch
"... About how incredibly tubular the Enterprise is now that we have a dedicated Tron room?" #tngwatch
s2e8, "A Matter Of Honor": uhhhhhHHHH if this were the first thing someone said to me when I boarded a new ship I would get right the fuck back into the transporter and blast my atoms right into cold empty space #tngwatch
Casual art commission offer
I'm not really dissatisfied with the show art I'm using for http://episodictable.com (attached), but if you feel particularly inspired and think you could make my podcast look rad as hell, I'd love to hear what you're thinking! (I could probably use banner art and stuff, too.) And please let me know your rate!
s2e5, "Loud As A Whisper": ugh. Pulaski is that relative who tells you that you could be so pretty if only you lost a little weight, then swears she was just doing you a favor #tngwatch
"From what I hear, I am supposed to... *avoid* you" #tngwatch
s2e4, "The Outrageous Okona". Mal Reynolds?! #tngwatch
So like... It's eventually going to be revealed that holodeck projections are living, sentient beings and this has all been an enormous ethical conundrum, right?? #tngwatch
s2e3, "Elementary, Dear Data": Star Trek is often referenced as an optimistic, even utopian vision of the future. Well, maybe, but it seems that even in a 24th-century utopia we still have chauvinists slinging slurs. 🙁 #tngwatch
Strange, is the show trying to set up something about Worf's heritage and aggression? Cos none of that really paid off in this episode.
THIS, on the other hand, WAUGH! I screamed! #tngwatch
s2e2, "Where Silence Has Lease": Woof. That last episode was... Real bad. Anyway, is this a crossover episode? Because it looks like the away team just landed on Dagobah. #tngwatch
s2e1, "The Child": uhhhhhhh why is everyone treating this supernatural pregnancy as though it were completely normal, rather than the Nostromo-level body horror it actually is??? #tngwatch
s1e25, The Neutral Zone: "Hey, d'ya mind turnin' down the A/C? I'm tryna record a podcast in here!" #tngwatch
Same episode -- Jesus, man, can we get someone to install a self esteem chip for this guy over here??? #tngwatch
s1e24, "We'll Always Have Paris." Now why the heck is a team of highly advanced 24th-century scientists calling this thing a "planetoid" when CLEARLY it does not exhibit hydrostatic equilibrium? My suspension of disbelief is ruined!!! #TNGwatch
I recently enjoyed the same epiphany about Frasier, and it's the same way I feel about The Next Generation now. It's especially great because back in the day, every season of a TV show had like 28 episodes! #tngwatch
