    S02.E09: Project Daedalus

    Burnham had no rank when she was originally assigned to billet with Tilly. As they’re now friends, perhaps Burnham just didn’t want to request a move.

    Maybe Vina just got bored and asked them to give her a new look 😉

    The Great British Sewing Bee

    @ElectricBoogaloo IIRC, Mercedes had picked a shirt as well as the duvet - only to realise partway through it was a blouse. She did get away with that though. Janet’s transformation challenge garment was reversible as well which I think pushed her up to first place because of the extra difficulty. And it was waterproof when reversed. Leah’s transformation challenge, yes she did make her task easier by choosing to make a smaller garment, but the judges could have specified an adult garment if they’d wanted to, so she just took advantage of the openness of the challenge. (Personally I wouldn’t even have known where to start with such an open challenge!) I liked Ricardo’s dress. A shame he didn’t get garment of the week, but Juliet’s was outstanding. Did they mention where she’d sourced the blue lining though. It didn’t look repurposed. Not really surprised that Mercedes left. I think she’d been on borrowed time for a few weeks now. A part of me hopes that Jen wins, simply because she seems to add pockets to everything! They did do the using curtains for dresses as part of a transformation challenge a few seasons back during a Sound of Music themed ep. Interesting to see what they could do given time to plan. Surprised that nobody used tablecloths in the made to measure. I have a nice set of curtains that a friend made me from some tablecloths a few years back.
  4. To be fair though, Sybok was IIRC, much older than Spock and didn’t seem to have been raised with him. Michael on the other hand was his foster sister for a good chunk of time when he was a child so it makes less sense that she wouldn’t have been brought up in conversation. Then again, I don’t think that Spock mentioned that his father was the Vulcan ambassador until after he showed up in TOS. So maybe he is just that circumspect when it comes to his family.

    S44.E15: Idris Elba / Khalid

    Agreed. I mean, they do a sketch where Idris Elba's clothes are getting all ripped up and we don't get to see any skin? Shame on them! 😉

    S02.E10: Blood of Patriots

    Perhaps Talla’s ‘boarding protocols’ should be extended to all visitors and not just the ones they want to stall! i loved the “have you met a Selayan before?” (Thud) “you have now” exchange.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    She’s ‘Meghan Markle’ as long as she wants to keep the name. There’s no law that says she has to take her husband’s name. Heck, even the Queen kept her own name for several years.

    S08.E06: Episode 6

    Or better yet, waited until she’d actually got a husband or at least a boyfriend who’d be willing to stand by her. I found it difficult to be as sympathetic towards her as I’m sure the viewers were expected to be. Yes, it’s terrible that she was forced to give up her first baby but what on earth did she expect was going to happen the second time round? my first thoughts though when she mentioned the adoption was to start counting backwards and wondering whether she was going to be Angela’s birth mother.

    The presumption of 'innocent until proven guilty' means that if somebody is on trial for a crime it's up to the prosecution to prove the case against them, it's not up to the defendant to prove their innocence. And if you're on the jury for a trial that's when you have to start with the presumption that the defendant is innocent and only bring in a guilty verdict if the prosecution prove otherwise. Individuals outside the court system are free to make their own judgements.

    S01.E06 Kappa Spirit

    When they said the mother was pregnant with Macy in 1989 I was wondering how old the other two were supposed to be if Macy was only 20...and then I realised that 1989 was 30 years ago and i'm suddenly feeling very very old!

    S02.E07: Deflectors

    Exactly. Somebody on Moclan has to know the exact % of female births. IIRC, one of the justifications for the procedure was that a sole female Moclan would be an outcast. But if the truth is that there are a lot more female births than they’re being told about, then that argument loses its impact.

    S02.E07: Deflectors

    I’m not convinced that the ‘one every 75 years’ statistic is accurate. That is, I know that that’s the rate that has been said on the show and what the general Moclan population seem to believe. But Khlyden isn’t 75 years older than Topa, is he? And if the rate of female births is so low, how can the gender reassignment surgery be such a simple procedure if they only get to do it once every 75 years or so. I won’t be surprised if we find out a few episodes/seasons later that there’s a much much higher incidence of female births but that the government cover it up and each family think that they’re the only one in that generation who’ve had a daughter.

    Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" Series

    The Long Winter is my least favourite of the series. Partly because I’d I’d take get to read it until years after I’d read the rest of the books - for some reason it never showed up in the local library and I only found it by chance in a second hand bookshop. But also because there’s so much of it written from outside Laura’s perspective that it just didn’t feel like a proper ‘little house’ book. (And no, I don’t feel the same way about Farmer Boy because that doesn’t jump around to different POVs)
