Jeez. If it's worse than Neighbours it must be God-awful indeed...


Whilst Redvers' opinion is as valid as anyone elses', I find myself disagreeing strongly. I'm rather enjoying it, and I think they've done a better job of starting it off than any of the previous series.

It has things I don't like, of course (I'm not a massive fan of the Chief Engineer, and I think the make-up artists have gone overboard with the latex, especially for the Klingons!), but it's gripping my attention and making me look forward to each episode.

The trouble I'm having is it seems so contrived and something feels wrong - I can't quite put my finger on it.
If I could convince myself it wasn't called Star Trek I'd probably enjoy it more. My wife and I sat and watched the episode last night and were totally unimpressed. I'll watch it but it won't be on my "must watch" list.

Comet tv now has Stargate Atlantis, Andromeda and the Outer Limits on their show list. Comet tv is run like a tv station so there's a schedule. There's also a roku app now for the US I think. US region locked? Works for Los Angeles , California , US servers.

It looks like there's a space tv show I never heard of before.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6445112/


It looks like BBC might get it.

https://www.reddit.com/r/scifi/comments/7b78fb/has_anyone_seen_the_french_scifihorror_space/

BBC_Member : For those in the UK this will be shown on BBC four and iPlayer.

Star Wars tv series and new trilogy. The tv series might be a Disney streaming service exclusive.

Mindhunter on Netflix is actually really quite good. It's like Criminal Minds: Origins, how the science of the BAU came together.

ST:Disco is being discussed elsewhere, but am watching that.

The Good Place is in an annoying mid-season break.

Criminal Minds - still.

The Walking Dead and I'm still not sure why I continue to do that to myself.

Babylon 5 just started showing on Pick (UK OTA freeview), pilot was Monday, so still right at the beginning. Weeknights at 2000.

The Orville season 1 is being cut to 12 episodes with the 13 th episode airing next season. I guess they are doing the Star Trek cliffhanger thing.

X files season 11 starting January 3, 2018.

http://bloody-disgusting.com/tv/3470191/x-files-season-11-premiere-date-announced/

All 6 episodes of season 12 of Red Dwarf are currently up on Dave tv. That should be the entire season 12 finished.

I think you can still watch the entire Babylon 5 series for free on go90.com . US region locked.

Why are they still bothering with that? Region locking is pointless. If someone wants to watch something and has sought a legal means but you block them, they will almost certainly still want to watch it, but no longer be interested in said legal means.

It's just pointlessly self defeating.

I wanted to watch Space Milkshake, but the only way was to buy it online. From a website that forbad purchases outside the US.

I was tech aware enough to find a way around their stupid restrictions and buy the movie, because I did want to buy it. Lots of people wouldn't have bothered. I wonder how many sales they've lost because of that decision.

I fail to see why a commercial media enterprise would place active blocks between themselves and customers when media can be seen worldwide anyway.

The movie was worth it, very Red Dwarf like.

Media rights are sold based on regions, so one company gets rights to show something in the USA, another in the UK, another in Canada, etc.

They, like many others, are contractually obligated to provide protection for the publication rights they have gained. They must, in order to be able to continue to broadcast the media, actively enforce the publication rights and terms.

Why is it so easy to just find a proxy to use to watch region-locked programming? Because, they're only going to go so far. If they wanted to, they could actively block most known public proxy servers and many commercial proxy address blocks. Sure, some legit customers could get caught up in that, but it'd be a small portion of the total, so it's manageable. But, they're only going to go so far in complying with their contractual obligations... just far enough to be able to prove it in court.

******

This... I might actually try to watch this:

https://www.history.com/shows/knightfall

I just hope they don't hump a football with it and introduce too much crap. I'd like it to be something like "Vikings", with a lot of it based on history, with a fictional flare. That's my hope, anyway, and I don't really know why I'm hoping the History Channel won't hump a football... I bet they'll put aliens in it. Aliens... in armor. Yeah, they'd do that. Sad
