Re: Reaction videos

I haven't heard that in regard to B5 before, but I've read that a lot of shows do film in Canada because it's less expensive (or maybe there are tax breaks? Either way, it's more cost efficient for...

Re: What an alternate TL where there was a space sci fi show on TV from 2010-14 look

I wouldn't say Picard season 2 is a slow burn. It starts off really fast-moving, but there's just not enough plot to fill 10 episodes, so they drag it out in the middle – in my opinion, anyway.

Re: What an alternate TL where there was a space sci fi show on TV from 2010-14 look

I'm not quite sure what the OP is saying – that if there'd be a popular space science fiction show in the early 2010s then we'd have sent astronauts to Mars by now? I don't quite see the connection –...

It's a north-east accent. I might be wrong but her accent doesn't quite sound strong enough to be from Newcastle, but maybe Durham or Hartlepool or somewhere around there.
