Hello World!

Autumn has come, which means that the past several weekends have been spent either celebrating the Jewish holidays or at farms, nature centers and agricultural festivals. We have seen more pigs, sheep and chickens in the past few weeks than we did all year previously! We also went to the Maryland Historical Society on the one rainy Saturday to see the Star Spangled Banner manuscript and all the local Civil War artifacts. And of course we've had soccer practices and games.

So far I'm unenthralled by the new television season. I'm enjoying Heroes though it seems very X-Men derivative to me so far. I stopped watching Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip after three episodes because it was painful to watch, I liked The Nine's pilot but missed it this week, and I'm still not in love with Battlestar Galactica despite watching the catch-up episode and the season premiere. I am rather enjoying Shark, since James Woods seems perfectly cast; I wish they'd give Jeri Ryan more to do!

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news items from September 2004:

  • 'Storm Front, Part I' Loses Quarter Of Viewers
    Star Trek: Enterprise was dealt a blow on its Friday debut when nearly 26% of the previous season's viewers didn't return for the premiere - despite making a big improvement in the timeslot for UPN.

  • Online Critics Rain On 'Storm Front, Part One'
    The first online reviews for the first episode of season four of Enterprise might best have been summed up by The Great Link's Michael Marek, who said, "I think Enterprise should lay off time travel for a while."

  • Trek Alumni Celebrated At Film Festivals
    Star Trek alumni were honoured at several film festivals during the autumn of 2004. Writer John Logan and actor William Shatner appeared at events in Los Angeles and Canada, while a ghost story starring Marina Sirtis and Linda Park took top awards at a genre festival.
