I'm on the complete opposite side, sure Discovery has better aesthetics (Likely because it's actually the most expensive TV series ever made)/CGI/Actors but regarding the story, to me it feels like a poorly paced and generic TV drama with an atmosphere (style? format?) more similar to Ugly Betty than Star Trek.

I'd agree Discovery is a better overall production but The Orville wins my personal enjoyment because it delivered the Star Trek vibe better than Discovery did.

Have you seen The Expanse? The quality is really high for a relatively small production tv series.

I'm having such a difficult time getting back to the rhythm again. One week was too long a break.

"I want a new drug
One that won't go away
One that won't keep me up all night
One that won't make me sleep all day

One that won't make me nervous
Wondering what to do
One that makes me feel like I feel when I'm with you
When I'm alone with you"

Amen, Huey. A-freaking-men.

Holy shit, I just got asked on an actual date. I don't know how to act. This never happens to me.

I caught the latest Orville episode (with The Feed, etc.) and liked it a bit more than the previous episodes. It was definitely an interesting commentary on "social network" as a complicated issue.

I like The Expanse, too! A little complicated at times, but also very thoughtful.

Some friends have tried to convince me to watch Mindhunter. I'm only on the third episode, but it's promising. Not sure what it says about me that I'm mostly horrified by how many BAD vintage cars they've managed to scavenge. (Death by AMC Matadors/Ambassadors!)

I said sure. We haven't set an actual date yet, though, because my schedule for the next week or so is going to be insane. I guess we'll see what happens.

Me too.

Got sloppy with egg nog & left over teriyaki yesterday.... Two big no-no's these days.... Woke up this morning to a migraine & an urgent need race my nausea to the toilet.

5 minutes indulgence for a day (so far) of misery.

Yep. A minute of flavorful indulgence is starting to not be worth it. I look forward to no longer fearing eating.

I have a breakfast date in the morning. I can already tell I'm not going to like the guy, so I'm currently kicking myself for agreeing.

Also, it should be illegal to expect a person to be charming before noon. I'm just sayin'.

Well, that was a weird experience.

He ate his whole meal in like ten minutes and proceeded to sit there and watch me eat until I grew uncomfortable enough with it that I just put my fork down and pretended I was finished eating, too.

Then he asked if I was ready to go, and I said, "Whatever you want to do is fine." He grabbed the check and paid and left. He didn't walk me to my car. He just said, "I'm parked over here," and walked off. When I got in my car and checked my phone, I saw we'd been in there for only about 30 minutes.

I didn't like him to start with, so it wasn't a big deal, but I'm just mystified by how he acted like it was such an inconvenience to be there with me. Like, dude, you asked me out, not the other way around.

Being stood up sucks no matter what the context is.

Despite being strangers, I can't resist the urge to express my empathy for you in this situation. It sounds to me that this guy, on top of being painfully shy, just plainly lacked any sort of etiquette or courtesy. Seems to me it's fortunate to have only lost 30 mins of your time.

Back in my dating days, I'd always pick something off the menu either I really really liked or had never tried. So if the date totally sucked, at the very least, I could say I had a great meal.
