I’m a sci fi nerdlette. I am. I grew up watching Star Wars, Star Trek (even while I write this), and Dr. Who. Mind you that’s the old Dr. Who, before the BBC got all fancy shmancy on us and stopped using the same set for everything. And Tom Baker, my favorite Time Lord. This article hits pretty close to my feelings about Tom Baker vs. David Tennant.
Currently I am working on watching every episode (178) of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Yeah, yeah you heard me. Little miss trekkie over here. TNG is by far the best series of Star Trek. Anyone who tells me that Picard wasn’t the best captain is daft. Kirk was great and all, but I’m sorry, the first season of Star Trek was just a little too hokey. Sure it was charming, but it definitely was the stage of Star Trek where it just showed “potential“. Leonard Nimoy (Spock), of course was amazing/fantastic/awesome. But Kirk was running off with green-skinned women so often that it got a little ridiculous. Sure Riker gets a little rambunctious on TNG, but it’s not so bad.
Picard is where it’s at y’all. He’s classy.
While we’re at it: Han Solo > Luke Skywalker
And as I rant about this, I have Lemon-Blueberry Bread in the oven. Aren’t I a catch. 😉
