    Star Trek - The Shit, or Just Shit?

    pretty much 100% the same for me but I watched it back a couple of years of back and really liked it particularly phlox and shran focussed episodes.

    I had to google the veracity of that and it gets weirder she was with Joe Kinnear before our Graeme. what an odd love triangle.

    Georginio Wijnaldum

    What are they gonna do though they can’t exactly beat the shit out of him? We aren’t that kind of team and neither is klopp that kind of manager who would allow it. appreciate Gini saying what we are all thinking but the only thing we can do is get on with it.

    New European super league?

    I’m not a fan of this idea but if it happens then I definitely want us to be in it. hypothetically if the idea is to have a European super league which teams would they want in it? Liverpool united Man City chelsea real madrid barcelona juventus inter PSG Marseille? bayern dortmund Benfica Porto ajax galatasaray? zenit ? shakhtar ? Im not sure how you distribute it without favouring England, Germany, Italy and Spain which is a big fuck you to the other countries not to mention some historically big clubs.

    Star Trek - The Shit, or Just Shit?

    Of course the older series have some poor episodes they were making 24 of them a series after all. Of the ones you listed I liked the Saru focussed one. I think id still take the best of ds9 and TNG over any of the discovery or Picard episodes. Guess it’s a difference of opinion.

    even if it was heavily classified surely when your main fuel disappears you start looking at the archives to see what else there was. They showed the tech had worked even if it was only with stamets. Surely you’d start looking at making that work. Perhaps they have it’s the first episode after all. On the spore drive I think that will be the advantage for the discovery otherwise they’d get pummelled by any ship as they are a few hundred years out of date tech wise. I still think in Picard and Disco they prioritise action over characters, I loved the character driven episodes of other series. I think they are moving with the times which is partly due to how we consume TV these days, streaming allows for more emphasis on a wider arc which does away with the need for self contained episodes which is what I liked about older trek. There also seems to be a desire to blow stuff up each episode which I find a little samey after a while. I disagree that older trek was dumbed down, just take a look at episodes such as “far beyond the stars” or “the visitor” in DS9 or “a measure of a man” in TNG. I can’t see Disco or Picard doing an episode like that these days. On the episode itself it was good to see the Andorians and the orions. Would love their species to be fleshed out. You’d imagine in a world where the major powers don’t appear to be around the Orion syndicate would have a bigger sway. Theres lots of scope which is exciting I just hope they take the time to build the universe a bit more.

    Star Trek - The Shit, or Just Shit?

    I enjoyed it (mainly because I like most trek) but in disco and Picard there does seem to be a dumbing down of the series. Agree with section31 the burn sounds a bit shit - most of our fuel stopped working. its all set up now for discovery with its spore drive to come in and be the game changer as it doesn’t need dilithium. Which seems dumb as why would they have explored the tech it’s not like they would have lost all the data they had. I would say - without knowing the cause and fall out of the burn - Id have liked them to try something bolder for the fall of the federation and say the consensus driven democracy led to too much stagnation as it bloated in size, the numerous wars took it out of them and the expansionist approach (the federation we’re the most aggressive in this regard even if it was via diplomacy rather than conquest) led to increased division, corruption and splintering into factions and the ultimately the break up of the federation. A civil war even if orally told would have been epic. Basically a regression and move away from what made the federation what it was, instead it sounds like an outside event across the galaxy made it harder to get around. lots of holes in that first episode but it has some potential. Season 2 was masch better than S1 because it had an ensemble cast with Pike and the others so as we see more of the others it should get better.
  11. More to maintain his value than anything. He might be shit but he’s got a good PR team and plenty of cheerleaders that another club May decide to take a punt on him.

    Donald Trump

    we’re all hoping for a trouncing but I can’t help but feel something is seriously fucked up could happen. I just can’t put it past Trump and his supporters to try it. It’s a pivotal moment in history.

    Star Trek - The Shit, or Just Shit?

    Garak really was a fantastic character prob my fav ST of all time. he was just so well fleshed out. I really want to read Andrew Robinson’s novels “a stitch in time” but paper copies are crazy priced I could get an ebook I guess. Also one of favs is when he’s discussing the point of “the boy who cried wolf” GARAKAre you sure that's the point, Doctor?BASHIROf course, what else would it be?GARAK(matter-of-fact)That you should never tell the same lie twice...

    Star Trek - The Shit, or Just Shit?

    Been watching random episodes of DS9 and Garak has some fantastic lines in it. BASHIR: Out of all the stories you told me, which ones were true and which ones weren't? GARAK: My dear Doctor, they're all true. BASHIR: Even the lies? GARAK: Especially the lies.

    Dexter

    Good job it’s coming back so they can milk it a bit more.
  18. I know we give achterberg stick but he’s survived a number of managers and I’m sure Klopp would spot a blagger a mile off, so he must be doing something right. Have any of our keepers ever said anything about him? also that article sounds like we’re bigging him up for a sale.

    Redball Liverpool

    obviously this is working for Red Bull but having formal feeder clubs just seems a bit crap one for the shitness of modern football thread I guess. I’m not a fan of this, seems a bit soulless and pretty disrespectful of the other clubs to become nothing more than feeder clubs, City do something similar with their group of clubs and it just seems Like the next step of globalisation for the sport taking it further away from fans
