But I want interstellar diplomacy to be debated in endless detail

Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As ‘Fun, Watchable’

You know, as funny as this is, it’s also kind of why I’m not crazy about this Star Trek movie. If I wanted to watch Armageddon, I’d … well, that wouldn’t happen.

I’m just not crazy about some hot shot coming into a universe and rewriting its history for a couple of hours of entertainment.

Kind of like in 24, where by Hour 18 they just assume you’ve forgotten everything that happened at the beginning of the day and why the actions of Good-Guy-Suddenly-Gone-Bad make absolutely no sense.

Still, I’m willing to look past that in 24, let’s hope I can do the same for Star Trek.

Globaltv.com to stream Family Guy, 24

Canwest (disclosure: my employer) has announced that it has signed an online streaming agreement with Fox which will give it Canadian online distribution rights to Family Guy, 24, Prison Break and Bones. This is in addition to House, Heroes and .. uhh … all those great Canadian programs that Global produces, like … uhh … that thing about the hair salon… yeah.

The full episodes are streamable on Global TV’s video site here, which a lot of people still don’t know about. CTV has a similar site at watch.ctv.ca for its programs and programs owned by its specialty channels, such as ER, Grey’s Anatomy and the Daily Colbert with Stephen Stewart.
