I think you'll find it fascinating how differently space technology develops as the series progresses through the decades...I wish our world would've had a never-ending space race.

I hope so.

But I follow space development very closely. I'm not sure I want you to tell me, but I wonder if it's real 'drawing board' stuff that is put into action, or brand new creations the writers make up? For example, the Sea Dragon is based upon a real, (but shelved) rocket idea.

Elon's sometimes bat---- crazy, but I'm on board with his space philosophy.

Is anyone else watching Death and Other Details? Next week is the conclusion and it has gotten better every episode. I am at a 9/10 after 8 episodes.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (animated series)

Season 1 - 8/10
Season 2 - 9/10
Season 3 - 9/10

Late to the party on this one. After the first 2 eps I wasn't totally feeling it, but it very quickly grew on me and shortly thereafter I was loving it. Sneakily witty humor, very cool mythology, great characters, and some really dope action sequences. Looking forward to the live-action Netflix adaptation.

Shogun (FX): 10/10

Only two episodes and I can’t imagine I will be changing my rating.

My husband has read the book - and James Clavell’s others - five times. He loves the show and says the show is doing a nice job of matching the book.

Not ever read the books, it’s a great show. Tons of great actors and the woman who plays Mariko is stunning.

I can't wait to start watching this! Anna Sawai, she's in Monarch, Legacy of Monsters too. I like her a lot.

I had to keep rewinding to get some of the names and relationships straight, but so far so good. The scene with the map drawing in the sand garden was very cool. I recall watching the original series as a kid back in the 80s, and one of the details I remember was a guy getting pissed on

Yes, that's the first thing I saw her in, she is beautiful.

I think they missed their chance at a good spin-off a few years ago. I would've loved a mini-series about just Michone walking around with her sword.
