I'd say it's still a mid-life crisis. the TNG premiere shows Bones being still pretty drat spry at like 130 years old or something and picard's maybe 80-ish by that time?

"mid-life crisis" tends to set in in the one's late 40s/early 50s and average life expectancy in the US is something like 80

I watched a few episodes of Who 4, Tom Baker for nostalgia's sake and I was at least entertained by his mad-eyed acting and the cardboard sets. Best Who (though not a high bar)





^^These guys, the Nimon were great, the poor actors were stuck in some terrible platform shoes and those huge top-heavy costumes.

they are wonderfully fun and the camp and the "barely transitioned from radio" feel of the 60 bbc is perfect. terrible costumes, props made out of literal garbage, a series budget that could have paid for an entire minute of "dallas"

also, ymmv, but douglas adams wrote a couple tom baker dr. who episodes and they are just great too. his sense of humour and baker's charming goofiness work wonders

anime oppression in the scifi thread is anti japanese racism. you can probate or ban me for this post but that doesnt make it any less true

i will try to not absolutely poo poo this thread up with eva clips or w/e but banning video from the land of the rising sun is hamfisted and dull

i'm p. sure you can post super sentai clips or whatever and no one gives a poo poo. you can also post cartoons that are not japanese.

it's just japanese cartoons, and at this point i assume the reason is pure bloody-mindedness, because it's in the rules

it was quite a while ago now, but what i remember is that with higher doses you wind up being completely engrossed in whatever it is you're watching, fully engaged. the rest of the effects are often unpleasant and disorienting, but it's interesting.
