I actually can't argue with this very much except to say that I have an entire book devoted to the physics of Star Trek. Laughing

Interesting article, although I find Pratchett to be a bit of an arse and I never did catch onto his Discworld books.

I'm sure he's right about Dr Who not making much sense, and it seems to make even less sense the longer it goes on. That said, I always found Dr Who fun, which is considerably more than I could ever say for the po-faced, ernest Star Trek, which bores me to frigging tears.

Star Trek and Doctor Who were always very similar to me in that they were super low budget and had ridiculous looking sets and creatures and such but I loved them both anyway. To this day I watch Original Doctor Who and Star Trek TOS and enjoy the shit out of them and just accept it all.

I'm more familiar with the original series of Star Trek than I am the Next Generation and all the other spin-offs. Simply because of my age.

God knows, I prayed that Star Wars would become a tv series. And I got my wish. Luckily, Star Wars as tv series is more Saturday morning serial than the finger-wagging morality play which Star Trek has always been.

TOS stands for "the original series". Next Generation was also a great show. The others were horrible. In fact rather than a reboot I felt The Next Generation crew were still very capable of seeing more action. Kirk is great but Jean Luc was no slouch.

He's amazing but I've never seen him do Shakespeare.
