Just confine the fight to a holodeck or Sickbay, and the mobile emitter is no problem!
For scariness alone, Pulaski. For stamina (considering the emitter problem), The Doctor. For intelligent fighting, Bashir.
Ok, my choice is Bashir. But could Bones put me back together, with Julian assisting??
It's Dame Judi Dench, isn't it? (And isn't Catherine Z-J Welsh?)
I'd have a hard time choosing between JD and Dame Diana Rigg.
Oh, man! The Great Escape is on my list of top five favorite movies. I didn't know this was coming out - thanks, Bysty! I'll be all over it! Well, at least when the price comes down a little bit. I also have the one disc version - can't wait to hear the commentary/documentaries!
43 % Yankee! Huh? Except for attending university in SC, I've lived in ME my entire life!
I'd better start hanging around fishermen and lumbermen...maybe I'll get my Yankee sensibilities back!
I used to have a friend who did a lot of specialized Army training above the Arctic Circle in Alaska. He's told me many times of the over 100 degrees below zero days. He also said that, at that latitude and with that clear coldness, that the Aurora Borealis were absolutely breathtaking beyond description.
Sorry, I'm from the US, and I know who Red Green is. Would he bring Harold with him?? That show is absolutely hilarious - pretty much because I know people like that in real life!
Anyway - Alan Alda would be cool. How about Don Johnson? He could be the nattily dressed leader-to-be of Section 31, who never breaks a sweat and always gets the bad guy...
Ok, it wasn't QUITE that cold here today - merely -18 F when I got up this morning. But we just came off a snap of 7 days of below zero weather, so this is just a tag end on a cold season.
This is getting old!
What's up with that?!?
I'm the kid from AI, too. I never saw the movie and don't want to. I'm assuming he's not a homicidal maniac, or anything. :lol:
Nope - tomatoes are fruits. But good try, right?
I said potato, 'cause it's my favorite, and I'm starving. :lol:
Oh, c'mon - I called who was going to die in "The Core" as soon as we met the main characters - the guy I was watching it with didn't believe me until the end! B)
It's not only not-Oscar material, it's Oscar the Grouch material.
But worst movie ever? I think "Showgirls" at least ranks on the bottom-10 list!
In the crossover story with DS9 (Sorry, I don't remember the title), Alexander Siddig is wearing his set slippers over his shoes in his last scene - you can see them while he's walking away.
War of the Worlds is one of the best productions EVER, radio, TV, and movies included.
I used to have my classes listen to it as a listening exercise, and while talking about old-time radio. It got to the point that I had successive classes asking when they were going to hear it.
I wish I had it on CD. All I have is an LP. Hangon, where did you get yours?
I can't believe I'm going to say this but...
Wow - and I thought I was relatively relaxed today. Thanks, Alterego, for letting me realize how far I had left to go.
I just saw this about fifteen minutes ago, with no warning. I didn't realize they had a new commercial! I literally scared my pets, I was laughing so hard.
*wiping tears away*
I was a Dwight Shultz fan before he went on TNG, and I think he's an extremely versatile actor. Who else could play Howling Mad Murdock , making up some crazy character or another EVERY week? HMM is really showcased well in an episode whose name I can't remember, but is based on an old Starsky and Hutch episode. Face is badly wounded/shot, and HMM has to try to save everyone in the Italian restaurant where he works. Marc Alaimo plays one of the heavies, but it's not his best bit part.
That said, I love Barclay. I agree - not everyone on Starships can be perfect. Except how he made it is as Lieutenant sometimes confuses me. Maybe that's why I don't have a problem with his age and still being a Lt. It was probably slow going up the command chain.
My favorite Barclay episode was the fear-of-transporters one. Can you imagine McCoy, who also had a thing about transporters, doing what Reg did?
Oh, and I really enjoyed his cameo in FC. I think it makes the movie a bit richer when you can bring in someone like that. Just having the regular cast time after time WITHOUT those touches makes the feeling a little stale. It's why I love spotting Yeoman Rand in the TOS movies - she doesn't say anything sometimes, but you always see her.
I'd Like To See Vince McMahon Playing An Over The Top, Over Dressed, Cliche Bad Guy.
In Other Words...Himself.
DS9 is another show that got better with age, even though there are a few eps from the early years that I really, really enjoy.
It depends on what character you really like as to what shows you can really look forward to. Off the top of my head,
The Darkness and the Light
Dax (first season - you've already seen it )
By Inferno's Light
In Purgatory's Shadow
Quickly, those are some of the ones I really liked. It varies for everyone, and I have Season 6 coming in the mail - I've only seen about 20% of it. Season 7 in a couple of weeks; I've only seen 6 eps of that.
"No Night Without Stars" written by Andre Norton
B) :unsure: :o'The year is 1878. Three ships of the British Imperial Spacefleet have just set course for the moon.' - Back Cover of "Doctor Who: Imperial Moon" written by Christopher Bulis
(The) Scarlet Pimpernel, by Baroness Orczy
Sean Connery will ever be the ultimate James Bond. I enjoy watching all of those movies. My favorite, however, is Goldeneye, and only for purely shallow reasons. I just watch to see Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean on the same screen. It's the same shallowness that makes me watch Patriot Games. Harrison Ford and Sean Bean is almost as good...
I love Odo..Rene Aburjonoius(i hope i spelled it right) Is a great chracter actor..So is Marc Alaimo(He was in Hellraiser) then there would be Quark :unsure: ( who was also the High school principal on Buffy the Vampire slayer)
Andrew Robinson (Garak) was in "Hellraiser."
I had to vote "other" because I can't choose.
The Great Escape (a true story)
The Dirty Dozen (my favorite movie of all time)
Twelve O'Clock High (still used in officer training school)

I can't name a cheese I don't like (except I don't like anything smoked, including cheeses), but I haven't tried a few. Limburger is beyond me, and there are several in the specialty cheese island that are beyond my price range, but I'm trying them one at a time now. My faves? Hmmm... Anything from cottage cheese to Havarti to Swiss to good old American Cheddar is good, but I think I have to go with domestic Provolone!
