Often when I tell people I simply don’t like something, whether it’s a joke, book, game, or TV show, they tell me that it’s because I don’t ‘get it’ or understand it. But I think it’s possible to understand something and still not like it, just like it’s possible to ‘get’ a joke and still not find it funny.

That feel when
something in your head clicks

and for one brilliant moment everything is completely clear.  You are one with the universe; you understand what it is, why it is, how anything can be possible.  Suddenly it all makes perfect sense and you know that nothing can stop you from achieving your dreams.

Review: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, addendum

I suppose I didn’t review Frankenstein so much as just talk about it’s history.  But then, if you haven’t already seen or heard some version of the story you most probably are just a barely animated corpse.

I should probably mention that Shelley herself wrote two versions of the book;

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

However, I am also my own worst enemy.

It’s really annoying trying to be friends with myself.  Having to take myself out places and listen to my own problems all in the hopes of forming an alliance against me.

Star Trek – The Next Generation: 2×07 Unnatural Selection

I’ve been falling a bit behind on these.  This is Star Trek’s fiftieth year, so I need to get in as much Trek as I can before it’s out (and there are well over a hundred episodes of TNG still to go).  So let’s press on:

Memory Alpha

A real tour de force for Star Trek’s very unnatural and
creepy looking old person make-up.

Star Trek – The Next Generation: 2×06 – The Schizoid Man

Memory Alpha

Data-Grave’s eulogy in this
episode is one of the things I’ve always remembered from this show since I was
young:

“I can safely say, that to
know him, was to love him. And to love him, was to know him…

Star Trek – The Next Generation: 2×05 – Loud As A Whisper

Memory Alpha

I liked this episode.  There were a few little things I found cheesy and wish were elaborated on more, but overall I thought it was decent.  The Enterprise has to transport Riva, who is we’re told a very successful negotiator.  So successful that he’s practically revered and worshipped by a number of sentient beings in the galaxy.

Star Trek – The Next Generation: 2×04 – The Outrageous Okona

Memory Alpha

This episode is just… it was hard to get through.  So the Enterprise helps this Captain Okona, who is obviously meant to be a sort of puckish rogue straght out of an Errol Flynn movie.  And sure enough, trouble soon find him and the crew of the Enterprise are caught in the middle of it.

Star Trek – The Next Generation: 2×03 – Elementary, Dear Data

Memory Alpha

See, The Doctor in Doctor Who can easily travel through time and visit BBC costume drama sets whenever he wants.  Although time travel has been used quite often in Star Trek, it’s a little harder for them than wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey, so when they want to do costume dramas,
