TV Show Challenge Day 28

Favourite Season Finale Cliffhanger! This is easy. Best of Both Worlds ended season 3 of TNG on an incredible note. Captain Picard had been captured and assimilated by the Borg. The Borg ship was on its way to earth, intent on wiping out humanity, and the crew of the Enterprise had one chance to stop… Read more


Before I begin in earnest, lets post the conversation I had over at a site called ‘Stefs Cave‘. My posts will be in green, theirs will be in pink. Good afternoon, I think both MRAs and MGTOWs (to be honest, they are very similar in a lot of respects) are pushing back against something that… Read more

F1 2016 Round 12: Germany

  Welcome back Germany! Last season F1 missed off this iconic location due to financial disputes – in 2016, the racing returns to one of its most historic venues – Hockenheim. The track itself is much-changed from its earlier incarnations. At one point the track was over 4 miles long, stretching deep into the forest,… Read more

Site Stats

I mean, it… Read more

TV Show Challenge Day 27

Day 27 is ‘best special effects’. There have been a lot of FX in various genres that can best be described as mesmerising, albeit for different reasons. The work across the various Star Trek shows could be considered ground-breaking for their time, and the FX used on action shows like Spartacus deserves a mention for… Read more

Alien Fossils

Mark Bryant used the back of his hand to wipe the sweat from his brow and returned to using his brushes to carefully sweep the sand from the skeletal remains at his knees. The snake pit of nerves in his stomach seemed to churn faster as more of the bones were revealed and he had… Read more

TV Show Challenge Day 26

Favourite sci-fi show! Now we’re cooking. Where do I begin?! There’s the venerable Doctor Who, with the mysterious figure of the Doctor and his adventures. There’s Babylon 5, which delved into mythology in a clever way. There’s Stargate SG1, one of my all-time favourites. The winner though, is the Star Trek show that broke the… Read more
