Really? You couldn’t tell if he was serious?
Actually it’s more like as long as you hold your breath. 2001 was totally accurate. Total Recall was not.
I was definitely thinking that the Borg need to enter this series. Since this is an alternate timeline, I don’t see any reason they can’t have the Borg show up at some point soon.
“It’s possible, of course, that this has more to do with the Star Trek franchise itself, which maybe doesn’t lend itself to major upheavals or darker inter-relationships between the characters.”
I think this has more to do with the fact that the TV show it’s based on was a TV show. Meaning that they didn’t kill off the characters and everything had to reset to status quo at the end of the episode. This carried through to the movies (except for Star Trek 2, where they killed off a main character, but then brought him back in the NEXT movie). So I think this would be the case with any TV show adapted for films, including The Simpsons and The Beverly Hillbillies.
I quote this constantly.
Oh man, this is seriously the funniest thing I have seen on Videogum in months! Thanks for enduring that for our enjoyment, Kelly! I hope it didn’t scar you too badly.

Which one is him?
But is it rap? Or rap rap?
Well, what else are you going to wear to the filthy basement from Saw?
You forgot exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!
I have to agree. But then, I have an unhealthy obsession with crazy people like this. They’re fascinating.
Agreed. I think it’s a backlash because of the Emmy wins.
There’s no way they can realistically expect us to root for that relationship. I have to assume that they want us to see it for the craziness that it is. This show has drifted so far from realism at this point that I almost see it as some wild, fever dream of right-wing paranoia. Just like 24. And I can’t wait for the next season!
“One time I tore my contact….”
So you probably have glasses as well, I’d assume. Good to know. Next time I photoshop you into something, I’m adding glasses.
Dammit, that was supposed to be this:
I may disagree vehemently with what you say, Gabe (obviously The Shield is the greatest TV show ever made) but I will comment to the death for your right to say it.
Also, can we talk about that for a second? I mean, NEW STAR WARS MOVIES NOT MADE BY GEORGE LUCAS! I didn’t think I’d live to see it!
Seriously though, Golden Oreos are GREAT! But why can I only find them at 7-Eleven?
It’s going to be ironic when Mitt Romney only gets 47% of the vote.
Something something penis storm something something ozone hole.
