Re: The Orville New Horizons (Season 3) 2022.03.10

Off topic, but Strange New Worlds has been SO GOOD. After the disaster of DISCO and Picard, it feels like we are back to what Trek should be. Episode 6 was just classic and had me giddy with joy.

Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

My own take, I honesty don't think the reboot is going to happen. I'd even put money on it.

If the CW were genuinely excited by it, it would be in the running this year. Pickup is probably even...

Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

Disappointing outcome. I'd put money on it not happening, despite the statement. If they're not excited enough to pick it up now, I don't see how that changes in a year.

Re: Is the Lost Tales DVD a DVD-R?

It might be a non-fake.[/QUOTE]


If it was direct from Amazon and not a re-seller, then I think it's likely legit. But Amazon returns are super easy if you want to trade it in for another copy.
