…add to that stuff that doesn’t have a trailer yet, such as the Picard Star Trek spinoff, The Mandalorian (Star Wars spinoff), the Loki series on Disney+, and…this might be a busy year.
I remember in the ’90s, when theLogbook was really hitting its stride, there was just about enough stuff for 2-3 writers to keep up with – various Treks, Babylon 5, Xena, Highlander, etc. – and now…it’s starting to look like I’ll need a staff of ten just to keep up.February 17, 2019 at 5:39 am #25136
Doom Patrol is looking pretty bizarre and interesting. The others, I’ll watch in passing but don’t have as much of a desire to seek them out. I didn’t get around to watching the new version of Cosmos even though I love Neil DeGrasse Tyson, I don’t care about Star Wars enough to watch anything else from them, I don’t know a thing about Good Omens, never watched American Gods even though I heard it was pretty good, and there’s yet another attempt to remake The Twilight Zone even though the original cannot fundamentally be bettered. That one I might bother watching since I’ve subscribed to CBS All Access rather than get my Discovery episodes through ulterior means.February 17, 2019 at 8:39 am #25138
Geez. I forgot Game of Thrones’ final season.March 3, 2019 at 11:56 pm #25173
I’m actually happy to find that Hot Streets has a second season that just started on Adult Swim. It’s a bat-guano crazy animated show about a special team that deals with things like mummy outbreaks, alien centaur time travelers stealing horses from the Old West, or invasions from interdimensional snake gods. Crap, is this show weird. I really like that Adult Swim tends to pick up bizarre programs like this, and others like Tigtone or Ballmasterz 9009.March 14, 2019 at 4:51 am #25205
So, I’m watching a new episode of the animated show Hot Streets and I realize the voice of the deposed king of the planet Rios-9 is none other than Jeffrey Combs, a.k.a. Captain Shran from Star Trek: Enterprise amongst loads of other characters throughout Star Trek history. Then there’s a flashback scene, and notice that the one short line spoken by a character is Johnathan Frakes. Justin Roiland of Rick & Morty fame works on the show, I wonder if his love of hiring science-fiction actors to do voices has rubbed off on these guys.
