A lot of people have pointed out to me that, if you watch the entire JJ Abrams interview with Jon Stewart, he goes on to talk about how much he came to love Star Trek as an adult, and that the viewer is left with the impression that he truly gets what Star Trek is about.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
I recently reluctantly upgraded my Whitney rating from * (“I hate it) to *** (“I like it”). It’s pretty entertaining, though it still has its mind-numbingly absurd moments (and I mean in a stupid way, not like Beckett, or something). And look, that guy is wearing that shirt, the one Adam wore on our first date and the one Joss Whedon wore while shooting Much Ado About Nothing. That hunky teenager on Subergatory also wore it once. It’s a good shirt. My sister gave me a girl version and I wear it sometimes when I want to look sporty.
Did you know the Dark Room Theater will be hosting Dirty Dancing Live! this May? And did you know that it costs only $20 at the door or $15 if you buy your tickets online via http://darkroomsf.com/#dirtydancing? Did you know that we open tomorrow night? Did you know that I play Baby? And Adam Vogel, breakout star of Ghostbusters Live!, will be playing that douchy Neil Kellerman and we get to interact Off Stage Right even more? And some of them funny dames from Front Row are producing/directing/acting in it? Did you?!?!?!?!?!
