My non-spoilery review, in the form of a text message conversation between me and my sister. (Footnotes added after the fact, and I've cleaned up some of my chronic laziness at proper capitalization within texts.)

Me: So it turns out that the new Trek movie is actually worth seeing. I'm a bit shocked my ownself1. Not one of my top three, but close2.
Me: I spent the first 20 minutes rolling my eyes, but I'm glad I stuck around.

Sister: Best. Review. Ever.

Me: Also there's Benedict Cumberbatch and Zach Quinto. I felt my Kinsey score dropping by the minute.

Sister: I don't know who Benedict Cumberbatch is but that is the best name ever

Me: BBC Sherlock. I'm madly in love with his hair.

Sister: Almost Matt Smith pompadour?

Me: I prefer his hair in Sherlock but that's how it looks in this one, yes.

Sister: Niiice

1 I'd watched like six hours of Firefly that morning, shut up.
2 More like five, really. Which is still passing.

More spoilery thoughts, mostly in bulleted list form, behind the cut.

Seriously, spoilers abound for Star Trek Into Darkness. Also it's long. )

I had to stop and think about this and make sure I'd never been to NYC. Because that's me. Sure, it might not be me me, but it's me in the same way the hedgehog is.

All the Nerd-Boys in Earshot Had a Simultaneous Moment in Their Pants

Cute nerd-girl playing scrabble #1: Did you see that episode where Data made a daughter? It was so good, and so sad!
Cute nerd-girl playing scrabble #2: Yeah, it was.
Cute nerd #1: And do you remember the episode when the little boy idolized data...
Cute nerd #2 interrupting: I remember all the episodes.
Cute nerd #1: But there was this one scene...
Cute nerd #2: I remember that scene.
Cute nerd #1: But I didn't finish...
Cute nerd #2: I remember all the scenes. Seriously. There was one time when my friend was flipping channels, and she flipped to Star Trek. And I only saw like, a quarter of a second of it, with Dr Crusher bending over a patient, and I said, "'his blood is turning to some kind of liquid polymer.'" and then Dr Crusher said, "His blood is turning to some kind of liquid polymer!" It's like when some people hear like 3 seconds of a song and can identify it. I can do that with Star Trek.

Yes, it's a meme. But it's an interesting one.

- Go to IMDB.com and look up 10 of your favorite TV shows. (past or present!)
- Post the three most interesting IMDB "Plot Keywords" for these 10 picks.
- Have your friends guess the show names.

1. Warrior Race, Muppet, Obscene Finger Gesture (Farscape, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rowena742)
2. Interracial Couple, Politician, Memory Loss (Heroes, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] fallenwriter)
3. Robot as Pathos, Famous Opening Theme, Cat (Star Trek: The Next Generation, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rowena742)
4. Old War Buddies, Femme Fatale, Anti Hero (Firefly, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] gonadsandstrife)
5. Alien Technology, Space War, Dog (Star Trek: Enterprise, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] gonadsandstrife)
6. Based on Historical Events, Generation Gap, Catholic School (American Dreams, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] fallenwriter)
7. Body Swap, Altering History, Science Project Losing Funding (Quantum Leap, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] gonadsandstrife)
8. Hologram, Space Exploration, Cat Suit (Star Trek: Voyager, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] rowena742)
9. Disembodied Head, Delivery Boy, Alien Creature As Pet (Futurama, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] gonadsandstrife)
10. Disturbing, Dying Repeatedly, Friends Who Hate Each Other (South Park, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] gonadsandstrife)

Some of these shows aren't as "favorite" as others, and some of the keywords are a bit of a stretch. They aren't in any particular order of "favorite," either.
