Surely the obvious reason the Red Angel chose Spock is because the Red Angel is Spock from the future…?

I find it hard to disagree with your logic, but logic is only the beginning of wisdom.

I frankly don't care how 'faithful' this is, or how much it feels like TOS or TNG - every version ha been different, they're all very much of their time, but always try to be the best TV scifi that can be made at that time, all tied together in a shared universe. I don't care about retconning when its done with love and attention to detail - I like for example the way this Spock acts like the very first Spock we saw, rather than later Spock. Basically though, it's just a rollicking good show, I'm loving it.

Another WTF narrative moment though, after the "let's chat leisurely through the two minute emergency" episode, I really like the security chief, the way she was lurking and seemed to have her sussed, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her, so when she had her breathing thingy ripped off I'm thinking is she dead? can she be saved? oh no, she looks dead! However nobody even checked on her or even mentioned her ... but oh look, now it's all over, she' recovered from the unconsciousness, retrieved her breather and is fine - yeah, thanks guys

I think somebody realised the lack of backstory at some point, so they stuck in that whole 'getting knocked down and getting back up again' memory montage

Heh, well it's been a while and I've just binge-watched 100 episodes of Seinfeld, so I'm seriously considering a foolproof strategy of joining UKIP to secure a date.

There is no middle ground anymore - seems you have to choose a side and fiercely defend it: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/mar/15/michael-jackson-fan-groups-france-lawsuit

ah c'mon no appreciation for the ZOG  joke? I was quite proud of that!  :lol:

Just back from drinks with a lovely new acquaintance, an attractive linguist who's lived in Paris and Berlin, we swapped travel stories and music and fun anecdotes; the conversation only got rocky when she said she voted leave and would again. I foresee some tongue biting if I pursue this relationship.

That's a very plain background.

I like the way that both collections put a single image on a plain white background - I find they're particularly good for scanning to transfer on to a T-shirt, especially the black, whit & red Dredd ones!

Just realised I'm talking out my arse there, it's only the Dredd one that always does it, that Durham Red one is a rarity for the twoth collection.

sorry, my bad -I'll let you all go back to the regular subscription woes now...  ;)

That reminds me, I found an Inhumans series the other week, buried deep in the lower reaches of Freeview on Pick TV - these are the comic version rather than the Agents of Shield portrayal - Maximus has taken over Attilan and Black Bolt is stranded on Earth, the rest of the Royal family are spread across America looking for him. That's about as far as I got as Pick TV is one of the channels that my dodgy aerial can't cope with and the constant pixellated freezes made the rest unwatchable. Seemed rather lightweight in tone with none of the grimness of other modern TV supes.

I thoroughly reccommend Punk Rock Jesus by him

interesting - just checked this out and it sounds good (and I enjoyed White Knight) so it's ordered!

 I wouldn't have recognised the name, but those glorious few issues of arctic slaughter did formative things to my 10 year old brain, so respect to a great talent.
