Re: Binge watching TV

Looking forward to Picard a bit more as apparently it has Q, which is never a bad thing. I think it will be along wait until Section 31 arrives and it will need some timeline twisting as Georgiou has absconded back to the mirror universe, however Star Trek cannon is more malleable than playdough. On...

Re: Art For Art's Sake

The most extreme example of art for art's sake is probably Deep Purple's Concerto for group and orchestra. Unlike many, I love that - and the follow-up 'Gemini Suite'. :dance: Still don't like 'The Astonishing', though. :snooty: qobuz have a very good 96/24 of the Gemini Suite that I've recently in...

Re: Binge watching TV

How funny - I've just re watched Discovery 1 % 2 and am about to start on season 3 again. I won't spoil it for you. As for Foundation, goodness knows I've just re read the first 3 books which in hindsight was a mistake. For goodness sakes we're 5 episodes in without a resolved Seldon crisis, by now ...
