I just finished the season 3 boxset of Travelers. Last few episodes were some of the most intense, nail biting sci-fi drama I've seen in a long time. Great character development and clever story writing. I've recommended it before.

I'm currently working my way back through the first 3 seasons of The Expanse in anticipation of season 4 coming out soon. It's a bit harder to get into, more complex and less fun to watch than Travelers. Both have great characters that will grow on you though.

Almost every Star Trek TV show is on Netflix, what more could you need?

I actually watched a Voyager episode this week! Very good, lots of fun.

I'd say Bride of Chaotica is my favourite Voyager episode. s05e12

Enterprise was the last good bit of Star Trek IMO, well worth checking out. Forget about Discovery, what an embarassment that is!

Voyager is great! The Next Generation is my personal favorite, I love that one episode where Data is on trial, Measure of a Man or something like that? And I've been wanting to watch all of Deep Space 9, I keep putting that off.

Don't like DS9.

Voyager though really picked up in season 3 when Jeri Ryan joined the crew as borg woman, pissed off Kate Mulgrew a bit who couldn't handle the fact she was a far better actor and easier on the eye. She really shines through on the episode Infinite Regress (s5e7) where all the other people/species who were part of her collective start surfacing. I loved the relationship she had with the little girl, Naomi Wildman, because in a way she was still a little girl herself; having been assimilated by the borg when she was young.

Any you merkin's ever watch Hee Haw?

I'm just watching some old bluegrass music clips on youTube, some new ones come up recently. The Stoneman family, Grandpa Jones, Stringbean... Some great stuff and here's this TV show I've never heard of called Hee Haw. It's hilarious!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcMKdbRAtKA

What does "hee haw" mean to you? In Scotland it means "nothing". If you've got hee haw you've got nothing. where does that term come from and what is it's etymological history?

Must be something in my blood, but I do love the old bluegrass music. You know the term hillbilly was originally coined to describe the Euro-protestant settlers who lived in the hills of the new American frontier. And back in my home town of Sanquhar there's a lot of history about the protestants, in an age when they were persecuted by the catholics. They used to congregate in the hills to worship, right here in this picture(https://twitter.com/scotbeasts/status/1022571679548092416) They were called the Sanquhar Covenanters and you can find articles about it online if you're interested. The original hillbillies of American were named after William of Orange. So many of the ancestors of the original hillbillies came from where I grew up. Whether or not any of them travelled across the sea I don't know.

Maps to the Stars is Cronenberg at his finest.

What a weird ride, have fun if you try it.

Just watched Border, Swedish film that was nominated for an Oscar. Weird as fuck, so if like me you like weird as fuck you'll probably like this. Quite disturbing as well, and all the characters are grotesquely ugly. I watched it with a fresh head, no idea what it was about and still not really sure after having watched it. Dark humour and some nudity.

Aye! Weird film club bros.

So The Favourite is pretty good?

Here is a clip of Olivia Coleman in her early days of TV, around the start of Peep Show. A TV advert that was on a lot back in the the day (and you'll know if you lived in the UK then)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xsd2oOoXM9Q

I basically watched both The Favourite and Blackkklansman in consecutive segments. When I got bored of one I looked to the other, and vice versa. Over a period of several days.

At the end I thought Blackkklansman was a piece of overrated crap, but I liked The Favourite. It wasn't what I was expecting but I watched it because Olivia Coleman was in it. I'm going to watch it again.

Other good things she's been in:

Flowers
https://www.channel4.com/programmes/flowers/episode-guide/
Peep Show
https://www.channel4.com/programmes/peep-show/on-demand/33196-004

Funny how both the main two characters from Peep Show (David Mitchell and Robert Webb) went on to stardom (within the UK comedy sphere) and Olivia Coleman was always the support actress and now's she won a bloody oscar!

Other Oscar winner I thought was good: Green Book. It's a decent enough family film for Xmas.
