  1. And that's why viewership of the Oscars has been down for years. Most of the country has never heard of these movies, let alone seen them, by the time they've been nominated. People aren't going to watch a boring telecast honoring movies that they had no idea even existed until now.

    Probably not. She was the one who basically shrugged when Ed told her he was seeing "Janel" and floored him with the revelation that she had already known for some time that he was seeing someone else. Besides, she's got her own boyfriend now, and even if she didn't, she's been the one to constantly remind Ed why he and she can never get romantically involved as long as they are Captain and First Officer aboard the same starship.

    She doesn't agree with Ed's decision because she knows how the Union is likely to react unless he can come up with an explanation that will satisfy them and keep him from being court-martialed for treason. She does understand his reasoning, however, and I think she hopes that he will eventually be proven right.

    It has just been announced that Season 31 is set to air in May.

    Well, if they're spouting off about things they know nothing about (we still don't even know the reason for the suspension), then Chris SHOULD be calling them out on it because they're not helping, even though they think they are. All they're really doing is making it harder for John's grieving family and friends to deal with their loss. So yeah, I agree with Chris. They need to shut up and take a seat at least until all the facts are in -- and even then, they need to be careful not to prolong the healing process for John's loved ones.

    Seth pretends that they don't by having Ed imply that humans have "evolved" beyond that stage (see "Mad Idolatry"), but I don't think that's necessarily true of all humans.

    And then there's this from the article: Her "future ancestors"? Nia is from 2019. She doesn't HAVE any "future" ancestors because that's an oxymoron. It's her future descendants whom Brainy knows in his own time. Get it right, you dweebs!

    That's why Kelly made a point of arguing with Ed about his decision to send Telaya home rather than turn her over to the Union. She knew it wasn't going to sit well with the Union and that Ed was risking his career -- and more -- by doing it, even though her later speech to Gordon about the responsibilities and hard decisions that come with the territory of command indicated to me that while she didn't agree with Ed's decision, she certainly understood his reasoning for it. I myself would love to hear Ed try to convince the Union that history will vindicate his decision as the best one for the Union in the long run because he truly believes that it will eventually lead to peace between the Union and the Krill.
  9. Janeway, Sisko, and Archer weren't much better, though. Janeway in particular could get as insufferably self-righteous as Picard at times, and even though she would occasionally be challenged and even called out on her self-righteous attitude, in the end, she somehow always ended up being vindicated regardless of what the actual consequences of her decisions were. And Archer's the-end-justifies-the-means approach to problem-solving always irritated me as well because it made him come across as something of an uncaring bully. And even though Sisko started out as broken because he hadn't yet been able to move on from his wife's death, it never really led him to make the hard, morally questionable choices until the Federation was well into the Dominion War and he was forced to orchestrate the assassination of a Romulan Senator in order to push the Romulans into finally entering the war as allies to the Federation against the Founders.

    Actually, I think there is. I don't remember where I saw/heard it mentioned, however.

    So THAT'S what Chris and Alexa were tweeting sad emojis about! My condolences to John's family and friends!

    It's not the first time he's been burned like that, though. Pria did quite a number on him before he finally saw her for what she was, and he still hasn't completely forgiven Kelly for cheating on him, either, even though he's tried to move past it and his lingering feelings for her. The wonder is that he's not even more paranoid and cynical about the women he meets given how many times he's been burned by them after starting to develop feelings for them.

    It was Gordon's thoughtful expression after Kelly set him straight about what command is all about that makes me think that he may actually be ready for command someday once he starts pursuing that career path for the right reasons. He really seemed to get what Kelly was telling him about the responsibilities of command and the hard decisions that commanders often have to make. He also seemed to get what she told him about his not needing to be a commander to be popular with the ladies. All he really has to do is be himself and not try so hard to impress.

    A lot of people were caught off-guard when Adrianne tweeted about their engagement last night. You weren't the only one who didn't see it coming!

    Seth live-tweeted during the broadcast last night, and he summed up perfectly what his concept of The Orville is and always has been: "A sci-fi drama cake with comedy frosting."
