I can't remember the precise details, but I recall there was some transposing of scenes in editing between the initial setting off on the assessment footage and the closing sequence, which could account for any inconsistencies. Narratively, I think we're supposed to think it's Anderson riding off on her first shift, but I don't think it was originally filmed that way (or at all really, hence the need to cannibalise other footage).

EDIT - Damn, beat me to it!

Also no tickets on the door.

EEK - I booked train and hotel, but thinking on it now, I don't think I secured my ticket!!! Any suggestions of who I might contact (non facebook) to wheedle my way in greatly appreciated.

*which you can only see on Netflix if you have the lightning fast reflexes to find the remote and hit the button in the 3 seconds before it auto-plays the next episode - drives me up the wall that.

me too - not so bad if it's when the credits are playing, but one series I recently watched on Amazon was poorly formatted and queued up the next ep about 2 minutes before the end of the previous one! grrr!

It's the biopic I've been waiting for all my life ....

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.
