Sadly no, it was this guy: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0082507/

Although I’m all for Michael Dorn showing up in the next movie as some other Klingon besides Worf. That would be the third Klingon he’s played. #nerdalert

You and me should hang out.

So many thoughts, so many great shows..Golden age, it sure is!

I loved 30 Rock, could have easily been a finale and worked. I too teared up a little in the scene with Kenneth and Jack (although someone elsewhere pointed out that the one time Kenneth did create a show, it was a huge failure. Remember “Gold Case”?) When the Iranian Homonym scenestarted, my wife and I started laughing so much, we could barely hear the next minute or so.

The Office, I thought, was good. I wasn’t thrown by the last few minutes because it made sense within the storyline of the series. This is the season when the doc crew steps out. It’s only surprising it hasn’t been more prominent yet. I felt so bad for Pam that she couldn’t share her good news with Jim. I agree with the rest of the sentiment around here that I, surprisingly, don’t miss Andy. But I think he’s coming back next or at least very soon.

Parks was great, nice to be in City Hall again. Ben & Kate I really did enjoy and will miss. I feel like it worked with New Girl, which was brilliant as always. One of my favorite Girls episodes. “You called the PO-PO?”

Anyone else see the finale of Last Resort? (I know it’s not a comedy, forgive me.) What a blast that show was. Sure it was kind of a mess, but it was fun. It was a wonderful addition to the sub-genre of Action/Adventure/Submarine TV shows and movies. Probably could have had a couple seasons if it was on another network.

Warning: Soundtrack sounds like Thievery Corporation. May get lodged in your cerebral cortex and refuse to leave.

My wife and I are just about caught up with Mad Men. Episode 9 on Season 5. Whenever the next season comes out, we’ll be ready! Also in keeping with the thread of being really late to things, I think we’re going to tackle Breaking Bad next.

This baby only saw The Lost World once.

I respect your opinion. Can we at least agree that Enterprise was The Worst, though? And that anything mildly interesting after that deserves to be praised? AND that if these movies continue to do well, another series is kind of inevitable. And that would be The Best?

Don’t be sad, neverabadidea. I’m really excited about the new Star Trek movie too. There a lot of trekkies out there who are genuinely excited about the vision Abrams has for Star Trek. I’ve seen the complaints about the lack of science, exploration, too much Earth! and all in the name of the greater good.. Well, all that is nonsense. Star Trek is not just ONE thing, it’s many things. It’s always been a science fiction action adventure series/franchise and this movie looks like the best possible version of it.

That’s some very careful reasoning not to care for the book. I respect that. I was just swept up in the language, the setting, and the characters. Loved all the stuff in the shrine.

It’s great that there’s a lot of fans of David Mitchell here, yet we all like different books. I didn’t much care for Black Swan Green, for example. But at least we can agree that number9dream is brilliant with its crazy Yakuza mobster storyline and ominous repetition. Great stuff.

I loved number9dream! Although his latest, The Thousand Autumns of Jakob de Zoet, is my favorite of his. It was such a great story. He’s best when obsessing over Japanese culture, I think.
