Ugh, stop twitching
method acting
life Posted 2009-05-27 21:52:36 by Jim Crawford
Working through a list of Star Trek: TNG episodes I compiled out of top ten lists and recommendations from friends, since I feel like I'm geek-culture-deficient in this area. I probably know more Star Trek lore from jokes I've heard than from actual episodes.

I'd forgotten forgot how didactic Star Trek is. It's a tossup as to whether I'd've enjoyed it more as a teenager. At this point in my life I already know that time travel might screw up the present and that you should appreciate friends while you still have them and that androids-as-property is slavery, but on the other hand I also have a lot more patience nowadays with being told things I already know.

<pf> worf is really giving beverly the evil eye
<dw> yeah, he'll do that
<dw> he does the jaw grind thing too
<dw> i always liked that
<pf> being a method actor can't be good for your teeth
<dw> they're probably fake anyways
<dw> in ds9 he buys a ferengi tooth sharpener. it's a great sequence

I have a weekly podcast called "TrekWest5" regarding ST:TNG (and other TV shows) - can I use this (with, of course, the proper attribution)?
