Review: Kingdom Of The Damned

Kingdom Of The Damned by Michael Jan Friedman My rating: 3 of 5 stars A collection of stories where Q is being Q and turns the entire crew (except for Data) into Klingons just to mess with them.  Of course, the Enterprise is playing taxi service to a bunch of aliens that don't like Klingons, so Q is getting his laughs in.  Not bad, overall.  I think

Review: DC Star Trek: TNG: The Pilot

DC Star Trek: TNG: The Pilot by Michael Jan Friedman My rating: 3 of 5 stars Pretty good follow-up.  This collection collects DC TNG 7-12. At least in this one, everyone's not a bodybuilder and the characters seem more true to themselves. I read these separately, but it's easier to mark a collection than to add 50 different entries into Goodreads :-). View

Review: DC Star Trek: TNG: Return To Raimon

DC Star Trek: TNG: Return To Raimon by Michael Jan Friedman My rating: 3 of 5 stars This was OK.  You can definitely tell that DC didn't really know what to do with the characters and the universe. Everyone is really jacked - which is funny because Picard looks like a bodybuilder. Somehow data can feel, and Troy can feel him having feelings, and there is a married

TV - Titans (Season 3)

This season sees the team go to Gotham! We get to see old favorites, like Barbara Gordon (now police commissioner) and Old Man Wayne, who is still haunted by his past. Interestingly enough the joker is still around! I would have expected people who are dumped in a vat of chemicals to not get that old, but whatever.  The Joker lures Jason (the new Robin) into a trap and kills him (oh yeah,

TV Recap of series finales

 Well, it's no longer a binge, so I decided to retitle these posts going forward to TV recaps :-) Here's what was watched in November:SupergirlThis show wrapped up in November 2021 with its sixth, and final, season. The show kicked off on CBS, which was a bit weird given that the rest of the DC superhero show universe was on the CW, but after one season of mediocre ratings on CBS (from what I

Batman Arkham Origins | Done

 So here's a recent game I completed! (woohoo!) I finished this one in November 2021 (last week actually), and I thought I'd write up some quick thoughts about it.I have about a dozen games (mostly trilogies, or parts of trilogies) still on disc from the xbox 360 days - so I thought I'd work through my backlog of games on disc, so I can move most xbox 360 stuff into storage.  Batman Arkham

TV Binging - Part IV

 Well...the coronavirus keeps going...so keeps the backlog of TV watching....Superman and LoisI finished season 1 of the CW's new DC show most recently and I was pretty surprised that it was better than I thought it would be.  I never watched Smallville back in the day, and in general the big name superhero shows don't attract me these days.  The premise of the show, at least from the

TV Binge (Part III)

With the late start of current seasons due to COVID, it's more past show binging (and also finishing off stuff I had started).  I started to write this back in March, but I am just getting to jotting down some thoughts.SupernaturalTo be honest, I wasn't really sure how this whole series was going to end. A series that basically billed itself as going out and hunting the monster of the week almost

Review: Star Trek Archives: Best of Peter David

Star Trek Archives: Best of Peter David by Peter David My rating: 3 of 5 stars The stories were good.  The art style doesn't particularly appeal to me, but it didn't really get in the way of enjoying the stories.  The "worthy" storyline felt like "the crew of the enterprise meets superheroes".

Batman Arkham Original Blackgate Edition | Done

This is another game I completed back before I put my xbox 360 away for a while.  This game was completed 10/20/18 (also this review has been quite a long time in my drafts folder 😜)This game took 8 hours, 40 minutes of playtime for me to complete, according to in-game clock.  For the rundown of the game's story check out the wikipedia article (here).  The game was pretty interesting,
