I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

DS9 remains the show I've seen the least of overall, but a lot about O'Brien never gets mentioned again after it happens to him. Remember how in TNG he was a veteran of the Federation-Cardassian conflict? I don't think that ever was a thing that played a role anywhere in the show.

 
There are several things that happen to O'Brien that seem to be dropped after the first episode they're mentioned in, but his involvement in the Federation-Cardassian conflict is most assuredly not one of those things. It comes up quite a few times.

Shit, there's a whole episode based on it as early as season 2

We finished TNG almost in time for "Picard"--ended up delaying the first episode by a day in order to watch "All Good Things." Obviously, that was a good call, since so much of the new show has referenced the series finale. I really enjoyed watching the whole TNG series, as I figure I'd only seen maybe half of the original run when I was a kid, and I was a bit sad to see it end. I don't plan to watch the TNG movies, thank you, as once was more than enough.

 

So now we're on to DS9! When it came out, I was 15 and a fan of the original series, movies, and TNG. I didn't like much of anything about the first episode: it was dark, it wasn't about "trekking" at all, everyone seemed angry and unlikable. I immediately quit and didn't watch any more episodes. Now, I'm realizing I missed out. We're eight episodes in, and it's off to a much stronger start than TNG. I'm really enjoying the Odo/Quark interplay, the simmering political issues, the dialogue, and even the darkness in the characters.

 

"Captive Pursuit," "A Man Alone," and "Dax" (even though it was effectively a remake of TNG's "Measure of a Man") have been the highlights for me so far, as they explored these new characters and expanded the Trek universe in ways I found interesting. The worst so far is "The Passenger," with its stupid plot, junk science, and an embarrassingly bizarre performance by Alexander Siddig. "Babel" was also silly, and "Q-less" felt forced. I like Odo, Quark, O'Brien, and Kira quite a bit; I hate Bashir's character and I don't understand Sisko yet (I don't think Avery Brooks did either). Looking forward to seeing how the show develops as we move forward, since it's all totally new to me.

If I were skipping one, it would be Empok Nor.

 

...why?

 

The one where O'Brien goes to mind prison and gets depression is skippable if only because it's weird how it never comes up again in the show.

 

speaking of things that are never mentioned again, remember when obrien played a musical instrument in tng? the writers didnt either :p

tribunal i think? i know that boone guy was on the same ship as obrien back in the war days. its even mentioned in empok nor now i think about it. garak keeps calling obrien "the hero of setlik (cetlic?) 3" while hes going crazy

 

 

 I don't understand Sisko yet (I don't think Avery Brooks did either).

 

thats ok. the writers didnt either. from memory alpha:

 

 

According to Michael Piller, "It was harder to define Sisko as a character than perhaps any of the others, and ultimately it took us probably a season and a half to reach the conclusion that Sisko was a builder, a man who built things, stayed with projects, as opposed to the driver, the captain of a starship who went off and moved from place to place." (New Frontiers: The Story of Deep Space Nine, DS9 Season 2 DVD special features)

Sisko was an awesome character. The dynamic between him and Jake is probably the best Father Son dynamic I have ever seen on TV. His speeches are just as good as Picards, and his backstory is epic, not too mention what he accomplishes during the show.

It is the Stargazer and I have always assumed it was yellow because the model Picard had in his ready room was gold and the producers thought it was a gold-colored ship.

Those are fantastic sets. Lots of great ships that weren't to be seen in toy form until Eaglemoss came along years later.

 

Be careful though - the various pylons and nacelles are likely fairly brittle at this point. I have a couple ships that have become "battle damaged" over the years.

I'm currently at the start of DS9 season 2, a show I've never sat down and watched all of.

So far it's been intriguing to watch how much detail is given to Bajor and its occupation and its internal politics. The fact that Kira is actually a former terrorist, or erm, freedom fighter, is nuanced too. It's a weird but appreciated approach for a star trek show. There's a lot more to say but if I got in to everything I dig I'll end up writing a whole essay. Star Trek has that effect on me.
