eBooks. Send more eBooks. I bought Sunken Treasure immediately when you released it as a PDF on LuLu. I have now bought *all* of your Kindle books - including re-buying Sunken Treasure so I could have it on the go ... and to support you. But I would like to read the rest of your book - but don't do that whole 'paper' thing. Between the dead trees and the bulk, no thanks. So ... send more eBooks.

"You wouldn't steal a car..." That is the one ... after my kids asked me about that the first time and my wife and I explained about piracy and whatnot, it has become a joke - You wouldn't stick a crowbar in your ear canal!

I remember seeing the pilot and thinking that Picard was going to be a short-timer, since Frakes looked to be the young womanizer captain type. When it became clear by the end of the 'we stretched this to 2 episodes because ... um ... ' pilot, I was a bit unsure, but certainly by the time this episode came on I was sold - Patrick Stewart was just plain brilliant. I love your 're-views', since they really bring me back 20 years. The first season had me finishing undergrad school - and I think I was one of few who didn't hate Wesley. But I did have feelings at times which my kids now describe as 'uh oh, he has THE LOOK'!

Last week seeing George Takei's face I said 'YES' and that was one of the things I was looking forward to most (as someone who was almost done with undergrad school by the time TNG started I had totally geeked on Star Trek)! Great show, though I worry about the whole Ali Larter plotline ...

Every week I force myself to watch some of Studio 60 because it has that 'could be great' feel ... but ultimately I think that the only reasons it is still on the air are: - It grabs enough 'draft' from Heroes to give the impression people are watching. - It feels like an insider show by and for insiders ... like a local fave. If they threatened to cancel it, there would be an uproar from columnists in LA and NYC and the sound of crickets from everywhere else ... - They need to have an episode called 'Death Spiral' ... or maybe just retitle last night's ...

Wonderful read ... made much longer by clicking link after link ... I have typically read only the snippits here rather than the whole episode reviews (shame, I know) - glad I read this one! I was a senior in college, and we had a huge empty room in the fraternity that we turned into the '3rd floor lounge' - and I remember distinctly crowding in for the pilot. It wasn't great, and was rather slow ... but it felt like 'home'. I got my wife into it later and we watched reruns in our first apartment, and now my kids are getting into it. Despite growing up with the original series, TNG is my fave. And though I wish you got better lines, I never wanted to kill you ;)
