    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Morning all!

    I loved Stargate! Although Stargate Atlantis was my favourite.

    I did enjoy the original Star Trek and quite enjoyed DS9 but I will admit to loving the new Star Trek films......Chris Pine....swoon!

    I loved Stargate. The lady doctor was very nice, but didn't see much of her!

    Loved the stories and the Gaulds and Jaffir ...

    A series that came close to the Star Trek one, though unconnected, was Stargate.

    No comparison between the two.
    Chalk and Cheese!

    You're missing a treat!

    To be fair, the original series does seem very archaic these days, and William Shatner is a pain in the proverbials, so maybe only trekkies would still appreciate it, but TNG (The Next Generation), Voyager and DS9 (Deep Space 9) are still very watchable.

    Most episodes are stand-alone, so could be watched cold. A few are two-parters.

    Morning all, today I am mostly waiting for a fridge freezer to be delivered.


    As for Star Trek, while I enjoy it in its different flavours over the years, Babylon 5, Firefly and the new BSG are more to my taste. And Blake's 7, of course.

    And Blakes 7 sounds like a dodgy 70's cop show? (I've never heard of it before)

    Voyager and DS9, Stargates (all of them, including the film with James Spader), Firefly and Dark Matter are my faves.

    Never got into Star Wars, Blakes 7 was on a par with Doctor Who as in crap actors and wobbly sets so they by-passed me.

    Wasn't overly keen on the original Star Trek but NG was ok.

    And Good Morning

    Oh and I forgot BSG! The newer ones. Didn't like the ending though.

    And we would have got closer to finding the original Ancients who made the Stargates.
    Robert Carlyle was good in it.
    I do hope someone resurrects it at some point.




    Edit....
    They promised a book which would carry on and conclude the story, but I've never seen one.
    Has anybody?

    If so, please don't reveal the ending!
