I'm super hopeful it doesn't suck.

The Orville is amazing. Episode 3 is EXACTLY like one of the best TNG episodes. Episode 4 is pretty good but more predictable.

Thanks for reminding me about this! I was able to watch the first episode online last night. I was excited about this for two reasons: brand new "Star Trek" esque series that actually shows promise, and Seth MacFarlane behind it. The first episode was great, and I'm excited for more. I'm stuck watching the advertising on the stream so hopefully the network/show is getting funding from that because I want it to succeed and go on for many seasons.

VPN + location emulation in Chrome FTW.

Speaking of the journey to the airport, a lovely old lady at a bus stop said to another lovely old lady that it was sunny, wasn't it, and a tall, thin, confident guy with a slightly great big bushy goatee, short hair pointing upwards and sunglasses on top said it's because of global climate change, nice that people are finally noticing, and wrong that everyone is supporting all these f%&#ing governments. He was very keen to point out that he's a roofer (he was clearly very proud of this) and he noticed it too. I told him I didn't think we had a choice, did we, and asked what he would do? He paused and then told me, "To be honest, you seem a little camp, mate, to be having a conversation with me." It was a little threatening in the moment, but as soon as he was gone, it was hilarious. He definitely seemed a few tiles short of a roof to me. I've met bad roofers before too - what is it with roofers?!

I had to Google what "camp" means in British slang, but I'd have to agree. You do seem a little "camp". :P Though I'm not sure why that matters to have a conversation with you. ??? You should have just said you're a classical musician! :P

Achievement unlocked: "Unabashed British Altercation"

Supposedly one of the world's smartest people worked as a bouncer for most of his career. That is either one notch below or above roofing, depending on who you ask. It behooves us to respect speakers and disregard irrelevant details. I agree that governments are atrocities.

This so called "one of the smartest people in the world" apparently dropped out of college because he thought he was smarter than his professors, and worked most of his life doing menial jobs.. As you said, mostly being a bouncer. His great achievement is an obscurely worded description of the universe which believes is both physical and "mental". Basically, he believes he can prove God exists. Sounds like a fraud to me. It would be something if other demonstrably smart people thought he was really smart, but I haven't seen any evidence of this. Seems like more of a publicity stunt, or maybe a generally smart guy let it go to his head and stuck his head up his own ass. :P

I'm sorry. :-/ Well I didn't mean it in the insulting way. Just that the description that I read probably fits to a degree (and there's nothing wrong with that).

Forgive me? :-*

All I know are killing techniques. :/ I refuse to fight.

It'll be a death match then.

Chris 'Deathwish' Katko reporting for duty.

Heh ... duty....

Actually, I don't recall anywhere where Edgar and I said anything against each other that might spark said fight. Is this just a random celebrity battle?

Bump because I was going to post in this thread to keep it alive, but realized that my response is perhaps too much of a "spoiler" while also being too provocative to not expect a discussion after which might spoil the spoilers.. So I'll move that to its own thread, and just bump this one. >:(
