Black Mirror Season 2

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

Last Thursday I watched season one of Black Mirror, and tonight I sat down and watched season 2, and so we're doing a little recap and & review. Yes I know these episodes aired in 2013 on Channel 4 in the UK... but they are new to me!

  • Despite some parallels to the 2016 Presidential Election, the 3rd episode 'The Waldo Moment' is the weakest of the three stories presented in the 2nd season, and is the weakest story out of the six I've seen in the first two seasons
  • The strongest without question is the second episode, 'White Bear' because you don't really know where its going until the very end
  • My personal favorite however is the first episode of the season 'Be Right Back', but I don't think having that type of technology would be a good idea, though many may disagree

Rebooking: Star Trek Insurrection

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

On this edition of Trekys & Voyages, I mark the 18th anniversary of Star Trek Insurrection by trying to come up with a story concept that is better than the nonsense we were given back in 1998...

  • I actually star Star Trek Insurrection in theaters on December 13, 1998 as I was not keen on going from my High School to the local movie house with all my text books!
  • It is amazing that Insurrection barely references the Dominion War considering it was still heavily on-going at the time of the films production and release
