  1. Can someone explain the Bernie cult to me? I see his very loud supporters on CNN and twitter and I'm truly baffled as to why he is the one and only for them. Just from what I catch on the news, I think Elizabeth Warren is the most compelling and thoughtful of the candidates, followed by Beto and Harris. Also, in Australian political news, I apologise for the fact that Scott Morrison tried to bring his mate Brian Houston the evangelical cult leader to the White House. Truly horrifying that Hillsong is expanding to other parts of the globe.
  2. I'm just going to ignore what that rant was about and say that I'm hyped and think it looks excellent. Seven with the two phasers! And the Troi, Riker, and Picard reunion looks lovely.
  3. Just shocked to learn that Scott Morrison is now somehow deeply involved in this mess.
  4. I second this request. Aussie news presenters seem to be under the assumption that Mike Pence is probably going down too and are saying that would mean Nancy Pelosi somehow ends up in charge? Like how soon are we talking that this would happen and does this have an effect on the election? Also, can someone give me a brief summary of how this is different than the Richard Nixon situation? I had assumed he was removed but apparently he quit, so was that different than what's going to happen here or did he just quit before it got to this point?
  5. Sorry our horrid Prime Minister has been over there tainting and sullying everything for a week now. Trust me, most of us our just as embarrassed of him as you all are of Trump! https://twitter.com/zalisteggall/status/1176420798174650368 Words fail 😑🙄
  6. Oh whew, absolutely not. Don't waste your sympathy on him. He deserves everything that he's gotten so far and anything else that's coming for him.
  7. Some sleuths on Reddit and Twitter found this about someone that is more than likely making an appearance: https://twitter.com/AleSTrek/status/1170840036385972226 https://twitter.com/AleSTrek/status/1171126170789842944 (for those who can't read Spanish, some of the main and returning cast that filmed on the last day of shooting signed a card for the crew and people have basically matched one of the signatures to Michael Dorn. That goes along with someone letting it slip during an interview a few weeks ago that he'd been on set.) Also, the same people have been snooping on the IMDB page, and found some interesting names/characters have popped up on the cast list: -Graham Shiels as Tal Shiar agent (Tal Shiar is the Romulan intelligence agency) -Barbara Eve Harris (from basically every show under the sun) as Captain Emily Bosch -Lulu Wilson (from Annabelle and The Haunting of Hill House) as Kestra (which given her age and the fact that Kestra was Troi's dead sister's name, she's probably Riker and Troi's daughter) Chelsea Harris doesn't have a character name yet but looks like she's playing a Trill who is involved with the main girl Picard is helping. There are also several younger versions of Picard's new crew so they're presumably doing some flashbacks to fill in the gaps for some of their backstories.
  8. I grew up watching TNG every week so that trailer and news has really took me back. Awesome trailer. I don't know anything, but I assume at least Dr. Crusher will make appearances in the first series. Vee is right that they're married with a child in the books and possibly the comics that are going on right now too? I'm not sure. (I'm pretty sure they're married in that MMO Star Trek Online game that is ongoing too). I'd guess it's more of a case of them holding off on announcing everything at once and them wanting to have some surprises. With that being said, I have a feeling they're going to slowly share news up to the premiere and they wanted to show off Seven of Nine and Data, which is why they used them in the trailer. I'm a little surprised they went ahead and announced Troi and Riker too, unless they felt it might be too much to try and hide if they're appearing in a lot of the episodes (I know they didn't say how many, but I got the vibe that them, Data, and Seven of Nine are in a fair amount). Plus, I think someone spotted them together onset and took a photo that they tried to brush off as her visiting the set while he was directing but it was obviously what was going on. I wonder how much of their story- if any- from the books they'll keep. Geordi and Worf, I can them holding off with until the second series, but I'm sure they'll appear too at some point. I think the urge to get all of them back together will be to much too resist. I could see them bringing on Kate Mulgrew for an episode or two as well.
  9. https://www.polygon.com/2016/12/1/13814948/nolan-north-performance-matters-voice-actor-strike Sounds to me like Nolan North thinks that his salary is just fine.
  10. I don't know about pay wise, but fame wise, Nolan North and Brian Bloom have careers most soap stars would kill to have. Nolan North is probably the biggest voice actor in games right now. He's basically given a good sized role in most PS4 exclusive, and is in Destiny 2 and a lot of the Ubisoft titles. He's also one of both Marvel and DC's go to voice guys. Bloom has Wolfenstein and Bethesda, Call of Duty, and also does a lot of Marvel and DC voice over work. If you're into video games or cartoons, you know them. I don't know how Brian Bloom feels but I think Nolan North has made his feelings on soap work well know, and fwiw, I heard they were thinking of approaching him for something Ron wanted to do on GH back around the 50th and were told to not even bother because he has zero interest in soap work, even though it was going to be like a two day appearance. Neither of them need soaps or are going to come back.
  11. When I was staying in the US, I heard a lot of the "go back to where you came from"/"speak English"/"you're so lucky we even we let you in here" stuff even though I was suppose to be one of the immigrants they like (white, there legally, well off). It always made me feel completely unwelcome, humiliated, and awful. I can only imagine how bad it is for POC and people who hear it everyday. I can't speak to the political side of things with the four of them, but they have my sympathy with the racist comments. From the outside looking in, it seems like this latest event has made things significantly worse and that there's no going back. I just feel sorry for the US. Also, I find US politicians using Israel and the Jewish people as a shield disgusting. I'm Jewish and proud to be so, but there are legitimate criticisms of Israel and Netanyahu to be had and pointing them out does not equal anti-Semitism. I find the fetishising of Israel from right wingers everywhere to be so gross and disingenuous, especially since from I can tell, most of them only care about it because they claim it'll bring upon the rapture (in which all the Jewish people will be sent to hell or left to fight giant rapture bugs- I'm not sure which is the official story these days). Ugh.
  12. AMC- Greenlee and Leo, OLTL- Jared and Natalie, Markko and Langston, and GH- Georgie and Dillon, Zander and Emily Greenlee and Leo were probably the last great couple any show managed to create, at least IMO, but the others were all really good in their own right. I love Robin but I never liked Patrick and or her and Patrick as a couple and everything post her "dying" just ruined it.
  13. Sheila goes without saying. Ryan Chamberlain was definitely creepy and scary the first time around, at least right up until he had the bomb at Mac and Felicia's wedding. Like most villains, the subsequent returns (the time he kidnapped Georgie, this recent return) really diluted the impact, but that original year or so was good stuff. Faison is another one who got less scary as time went on, but he was legit scary up until the Ron years. His original stint was before my time, but the beginning of Billy Clyde's stint in the 90s when he was originally after Donna and Emily Ann was frightening to me. It did get silly once the Dixie stuff started though. I only remember the romance with Rachel years, but from old episodes and clips, Carl on Another World was another one that could be incredibly scary. Vivian on Days and Gwyn on Loving had their creepy moments too. I agree that people like Stefano and Helena were always more entertaining than actually scary. The worst are obviously unfrozen Stavros from GH and Justine on AW.
  14. Thanks. I assumed it was something like this, but I didn't want to comment on it without knowing the context of it. It was a really great moment. Again coming from an outside perspective and not knowing much about any of them outside of Bernie and Biden, I thought Warren, Harris, Gillibrand, Buttigieg, and Castro were the stand outs and had the best ideas and message for exactly why they were running. Do any of them have a chance or is it just going to Biden or Bernie? I thought Beto, Klobuchar, and Booker stood out as well but not as strongly as the others. I'm afraid to ask because I'm sure they'd be just awful to watch, but are their debates for Trump and the Republicans? Or does the sitting President not have anyone true against them from their own party?
  15. Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is busing?
  16. I've been watching these here in Australia. From my outside perspective (and I hope I get all these names right- sorry if I don't), it's Elizabeth Warren, Beto O'Rourke, Cory Booker, Justin Castro, and Amy Klobuchar from yesterday and then Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Pete Buttigeg who are making the strongest impressions and cases for what they're going for. I think Warren, Castro, and Harris have been the strongest. I also liked the climate change guy from yesterday but he seems like a non-entity and I do like this guy that's all about gun control today even if he seems too eager. Bernie and Biden seem like they're getting stomped. Also, my stepmother loved Marianne Williamson and her whole shtick and I can't believe she's running for...anything lol.
  17. Yes, and they're transparent as [!@#$%^&*]. If Brenda was on her way back, they'd be dropping hints about about her all over the place and mentioning her. When was the last time they talked about Brenda? Has there been any hint that this person is Brenda's son? Vanessa Marcil is probably the only person left who could still bring in a large number of viewers with her and you can't tell me that if she was on her way back they wouldn't be promoting the [!@#$%^&*] out of it. It's one thing to have people like Skye, Faison or Holly appear as surprises cause- god love them- they're probably not going to do anything for ratings. Vanessa Marcil can help improve ratings and Frank knows this. He's not stupid.
  18. Thank you. There was a very small window in like 2014 where they maybe could have done it. They obviously didn't so it's a moot point. They wouldn't dare try it now. As for Dev being Brenda's son, I again ask for anybody offering this theory up to explain to me when, why, and how Brenda's son is now a homeless pickpocket who is evidently scamming Sonny. How is this suppose to play out? How would it be possible? It makes zero sense. Yes there is some mystery woman apparently returning in July, but come on now. If Brenda was returning, they would have been shouting it from the rooftops and promoting the hell out of it. At *best*, this mystery person is like Skye or Holly. I fully expect the next and last time we see Brenda is when GH is ending so they can send her and Sonny off together.
  19. Oh I totally agree. I just feel like people hoping for some great fantasy storyline where Liz, Sarah, and Hayden are all onscreen together are fooling themselves. As long as Hayden is around and onscreen, she's going to be Liz's sole adult family in town, even if they have no relationship. They could have basically told the exact same story with Sarah that they did with Hayden but they didn't because they just don't care. Like you said, they've heaps of chances to get a solid Sarah and they didn't. They had years to either bring back Carly Schroeder or get a good recast and they didn't do that either. They brought on Hayden and any number of interchangeable 20 somethings instead. At this point, you just have to assume it's disinterest. As for people who want Dev to be Brenda's son, I just have to ask- why? How on earth would Brenda's son ever become a homeless teen who is a pickpocket? It's as absurd as the rumour that they're going to recast Robin (which will never happen) or the idea that Willow will turn out to be aforementioned Serena. How is exactly is that going to work out when Lucy, Kevin, and Scott have seen and interacted with Willow? They don't know what their kid looks like or where she is? I'm all for history but come on now with some of these ideas and suggestions. He was awful as Lucky and GH needs to be losing cast members, not bringing back old ones in new roles.
  20. I don't hate Budig like a lot of people but no, there is not room for both. We never needed Hayden in the first place. She should have just been Sarah from the start. Vee is right however that Sarah is cursed. She's like Serena; the show has thousands of chances to go there but they haven't (no matter how many times fans try to fancast it into happening). I don't know if it's backstage politics, disinterest, or both but it's, imo, never going to happen. Hayden basically made Sarah redundant. And no, Dev doesn't need to be Brenda's son nor does he need to be Sonny's son via Angel (really with this?). History and legacy characters are great and yes, the show could use a few more but we don't need to make every random person connected to history. That's tired. Or he's just Dev.
  21. He was never going to be Brenda's son and Vanessa never said no. Let's not give credence to rumours that start on anonymous gossip sites where anybody can share their fanfic and claim it's fact.
