And the spoof on Star Trek looks more like Star Trek than Star Trek does...

TNG is my favorite Star Trek series and by a decent margin.

DS9 is underrated, but I agree.

The Baywatch movie looks stupidly funny.

As a series, absolutely.

 

If we break it down into seasons, DS9 had the best seasons (4-6, primarily 5-6). The Dominion War is the best Trek ever, IMO.

Janeway is awesome. The Doctor is awesome.

 

The rest of the cast should have been left on a desolate planet somewhere in the Gamma Quadrant.

 

Though Seven of Nine was a decent character later in the series.

They also had limited compelling opposition.  There best villains were basically ripped off from TNG and they were second rate ripoffs at that.

 

I agree with you, the height of the war with the Dominion was some really, really good stuff.

There is only one reason to watch any Underworld movies, and if you can't see her, well.....

This is slightly off topic but funny. And the comments about Beckinsale are even funnier.

So my soon-to-be 7-year-old saw a preview for a new Transformers movie and got excited. As an 80's kid I loved Transformers, and I'm thrilled my son is starting to transition to Marvel Movies and Star Wars so I can see something other than cartoons in the theater.

 

But ugh, Michael Bay.....So torn about this development.

Nothing better than sharing things with kids, even things from Bay.

I'd prefer to just stick with The Rock.

 

Though to my recollection that one is much more violent and profane than his robots + explosions movies. Though to be fair I haven't actually seen any of the new Transformers movies except for perhaps 10 minutes on cable. They seem pretty PG-13. Maybe they're good and Bay just gets a bad rap, but the previews for any of his movies from the past 20 years always leaves me with the sense that he only deals in schlock and gimmickry.

Oh no, they aren't good. but still, doing stuff with your kids is the best.

Okay here's one I can get behind. Especially if Spielberg is involved.

It's time for Animaniacs, again.
