Eugene Gene Roddenberry is most beneficial called the creator in the StarTrek universe. When he approached television executives regarding his concept for the show, they were not impressed. They called his proposed series "a childish concept" about unrealistic, unexciting aliens. They did not even such as the name in the show, Star Trek. About two years later, the executives finally approved Roddenberry's "crazy idea" for television. During its run, Star Trek was twice nominated for two main Emmy Awards - Best Dramatic Series, but somehow, it had terrible ratings. Only its extremely loyal and supportive fans kept it on life-support for three years before it was finally cancelled in 1969. Gene became called "the guy who made a high priced flop" and located it tough to be effective.
It seems that virtually every show on TV these days is either reality TV, medical or CSI-wherever. Sometimes a mixture of two or seventy one. Whatever happened to good old fashioned Sci-Fi? I miss spaceships and aliens, lasers and spandex-clad babes. I miss the cheesy dialog, wonky effects and ridiculous fighting and "acting" type of William Shatner in Star Trek Classic up to the intelligent, articulate and provocative shows like Deep Space Nine and the Battlestar Galactica reboot.
Rocksteady's developers thought of Arkham Asylum as 'practice' from the time the Arkham City project was underway. Considered as the most effective ever superhero game, Asylum was the 2009 Game of the Year. However, compared to Arkham City, it looks like a demo - a draft or perhaps a blueprint for the most amazing Batman and superhero game ever created.
I felt compelled to revisit Star Trek after many years and was stunned to find out how the very first season of ST:TNG contains this line from First Officer William Riker (played by Jonathan Frakes): "We will no longer enslave animals for food purposes". How did I ever miss this line? Last time I saw that episode ("Lonely Among tv shows from 60s and 70s Us" Season 1), I was still a nicely conditioned meat eater along no clue about animal cruelty, environmental surroundings or the expense of junk food. The original title on this blog is at fact "Why we do not connect the dots whenever we have the facts" which I might still write. But I felt more inclined to talk about the mythology of Star Trek and the way his creator Gene Roddenberry influenced his two creations (Original Trek and Next Gen). What I realized is when most of his philosophy got washed down by his successors. I am not attacking Rick Berman who co-produced the Next Generation and co-created Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise, but something on the way got lost or put to the side.
Additionally, Catwoman was apparently over-hyped as being a playable character. She does indeed find some good playtime, and not nearly as almost as much ast one could be led to believe. However - I will say that jane is very fun to play - completely different MO from Batman and contains her own gadgets to knock bad guys around with - the caltrops particularly can be extremely useful while confronting certain attackers later amongst people.
