    I have it on good authority that Fish prevents cancer.

    I'm recording episodes now and will likely catch that one.
    I remember it but vaguely.
    Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD[YHVH], that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
    Jer 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he[the Branch] shall be called, THE LORD[YHVH] OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    Tads are of an uncertain quantity.

    I lost a close high school-onward friend this week.

    I'll see him again.

    So, a friend gave me a fire stick with Kodi installed.
    The Barney Miller/Banacek/Rockford Files possibilities are endless.

    It's amazing to me how few of the major networks field anything I'm interested in watching these days, considering the glee with which I once greeted the arrival of the Fall Tv Guide magazine. Seems like ages since that happened...probably has been.

    Anyway, what started this consideration was someone telling me that the new Star Trek series, that looked interesting in trailers, was going to be exclusively on this new CBS attempt to eat at the trough of Netflix and other pay services. The primary problem with their gambit, to my mind, is that outside of that I'm not going to watch very much and why pay most of what I pay for Netflix to see a show or two?

    They'd be better off producing it and selling it to Netflix. I can't see the service working or people accustomed to a great deal of original programming shelling out much for a show and what amounts to TV Land access or reruns on demand.

    So I guess I'll have to wait this Trek out.

    In the meantime, looking across the CBS landscape...dust...Big Bang? Isn't that when it premiered?

    Kevin CAN Wait if he expects me to watch bad television.

    Mom is a trainwreck that's mostly good for reminding me how good the actresses in it were with better material.

    Life in Pieces is funny, but I keep forgetting it's on. So how funny can it be?

    Scorpion stings...and that's Monday.

    I watched the pilot and second episode available on CBS All Access tonight.

    Presumably set 10 years prior to Kirk & Co., one wonders what happened in the aftermath of this timeline given the advanced technology on display, including the bridge, that we find absent in Kirk's era. Apparently something like worm holes are being used so that the First Officer can instantly summon her Vulcan adopted parent's hologram for real-time communication and advice with but a few clicks at the edge of Federation space.

    Then there is all the forced metaphysical Zen that permeates these two episodes. We are even treated to the Klingon commander dealing with an albino member (a white Klingon!) of the race that steps up when all his normal Klingon's will not. "I do not see your color when I look at you, but a mirror, etc. etc." I assume the viewer will be treated with plenty of these Hollywood social medicine bromides in the episodes to come.

    4 on a 10 point scale for me. Any series below 5 is no longer watched.
