Star Trek (Original Series)

I know I haven’t been keeping up with this blog as well as I should be, and I mean to change that.  I thought I would start up again with my latest addiction.  Star Trek.

Now, I’ve seen Star Trek before, but I’ve never watched the entire series.  Last July, Netflix started streaming all five series from the Star Trek universe.  I knew that I wanted to watch them all, but never got around to it until recently.  It’s scary how fast I’ve been going through them.  Since April, I’ve watched the original series, The Animated Series, and up to five seasons of the The Next Generation.  That’s 202 episodes in 2 months.  That’s an average of 3 episodes a day.  Dear God, I need to get a life.

I still need to watch the movies, but those aren’t on Netflix, and I’m lazy about finding them on the internet.

Since I’m on Season 5 of The Next Generation already, it is hard to go back and give good details on specific episodes or feelings I had about the original series.  I did, however, go back and look at text messages, Tweets, and photos I took around the time I watched it.

Wilfred

I had some catching up to do on Wilfred.  Whereas I was only two episodes behind on ‘Louie’, I was three on ‘Wilfred’.  Yikes!

I have to say I’ve enjoyed this show so far.  I’ve never seen the original Australian version of this show, but this version is amazing.  I give kudos to FX for putting out such great sitcoms lately.  Like what AMC has done with their original programming, FX is becoming the place to go to for groundbreaking comedy shows.  They are taking a chance on programming that would NEVER make it on ‘The Big Three’ networks, and it’s working.

Back to Wilfred, though.  Jason Gann cracks me up.  I especially love it when he is more ‘dog’ than ‘man’.  Describing the various fragrances of girls’ asses at yoga?  Hilarious.  Being easily distracted by bubbles?  Humping Bear?  It’s all just amazing.  I’m not even grossed out by Elijah Wood and his seemingly thin skin anymore (I have a thing against thin skin, it’s hard to describe, but I get gross out if people have delicate looking skin).  Brilliant casting.

Can I also just say that I loved that Dwight Yoakman was in the Doubt episode?  Thanks.
