Out of the Blue

So I spoke with the lady from the tree doctor place yesterday, and decided that since the guys showed up Friday because a customer complained they left a mess, I would help them out by saying what a great job they had done for us. When I told her this was because they thought they were supposed to do a follow-up visit here, she was incredulous that they could have mistaken us for the house they were supposed to visit, implying that they'd have to be idiots to think so. So it seems my effort at getting them out of trouble did the exact opposite. Teach me to try and help.

Broke down and preordered TNG from Amazon for $78...hard to say no to that.


Apparently they're trying to feature at least one extended episode in S2 with 20 minutes of previously unseen footage...


Between watching the episodes originally, their immediate reruns and syndications, and the whole bunch of reruns that have aired over the last few years (SciFi/SyFy, BBCAmerica, Spike, etc) I've seen all of the episodes enough times to no longer care about TNG.

Though an extended episode might be neat, but I wouldn't shell out for a whole box set to see it.

I do like the episode they extended, and feel it's a solid philosophical debate. But, what always bothered me was this is taking place hundreds of years into the future where we'd already seen one cybernetic race (NOT counting the Borg). And yet they STILL hadn't squared away rights around AI's? Seriously?
