    Is anybody watching Femme Trek where there are seemingly no straight men of any high rank in Starfleet? One more ep of the season, thank God. The season closer better be the biggest twist ending ever to get me to come back for season 2.

    Sounds like a way to take the heat off of them. It's just that concept, of all concepts for white men in a industry that still trying to pick up on it's lack of racial diversity to choose... they thought about that kind of alternative universe??? lol.

    If they wanted to do an alternative universe, then how about one where black men were in control of the country and most of the world after a successful slave rebellion that catapulted them into power and glory. You have the some of the same social and political issues, but black people were also successful in defeating racism and destroyed the myth of racial superiority and even made racism in some states or cities a criminal offense. That sounded like an eye opening alternative universe to me.

    Hmm ... that's not a bad idea. But, how would they do it and keep from being preachy? If it's on HBO, it has to have some "heft" to it without trending into SJW territory.

    Same fight, alternate ending.

    That's where the right writers come in, like I love the way Irv Gotti's concept for Tales was written it just had bad acting. lol. Also Jordan Peele's Get Out is a good example of not being too preachy and just deliver a smart, good conversation. (He won the WGA award for his script over the weekend btw.) But it would be important to re-visit the slave rebellion at length and in detail in the pilot.

    The trailer looks utterly ridiculous, which means it will become another blockbuster hit for Dwayne Johnson.

    Freeform just dropped an all-new teaser for the new series Siren.

    The drama centers on the coastal town of Bristol Cove, which is known for its legend of once being home to mermaids.

    If any of you Colonizers/wanna be Colonizers watch Black Panther and claim you don't like it, you need to be pistol whipped and then shot in the head. 'Nuff Said.
