I don't quite get the gist yet...but Aaron Paul
Where's Bernard Lowe? and Maeve? or even Charlotte, for chawsakes?? And was that Dolores Abernathy in the trailer's climax?
^^ I have the same exact questions
Laura meets the younger Xavier. Nice. Maybe I'll watch this one instead of doing a GOT marathon.
Batwoman looks a lot better here with the action sequences. I'm a bit meh about the comment on the Bat Suit. "It's perfection. It will be perfect...when it fits a woman." What now?
Westworld on Meth!
Star Trek Picard
Nice phonetic title since a lot of people won't recognize the reference. Unless they're watching current US news. .
Intriguing even if the story isn't exactly groundbreaking. It's like Skynet (from Terminator), with Eye in the Sky and a bit of War Games thrown in. Though the company name sounds generic, it has the same name as Steve Jobs' venture when he was let go from Apple. Its legacy is NeXTSTEP and OPENSTEP, which is said to be the foundation for all Apple OSes, which includes Siri (hence the AI connection). Then they name the AI in the series, Eliza, which is close enough to Alexa and sounds very much like the Amazon Echo. Which makes for a very believable and scary premise.
My favorite Star Trek captain. Make it so.
Namba Wan, Engage.

Something that actually happened but was never widely known. Ebola Zaire (which at the time had no cure and had a 90% mortality rate) in the US.
There was actually a movie made on the book The Hot Zone. It was titled Outbreak and it starred Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Donald Sutherland (what a line up). An especially memorable moment was the standoff between the chopper and the B52.
One of the rather better oldies. Besides, they did off Rene Russo here. Compare that to Contagion and you get a smarmy drama with Matt Damon as a conflicted, grieving husband and father to two kids and Pepper Potts as a cheating wife who started the epidemic by having sex on a trip to Hong Kong.
Rene Russo's character didn't die. That's why Dustin Hoffman's character was so intent on coming up with a cure to save his ex-wife. They did off Kevin Spacey though. As for Contagion, it didn't really resonate with me, I didn't pay much attention to the story while I was watching though I did remember the part where they showed how it all began. You know you're too much entrenched in the MCU when you refer to actors/actresses by their MCU persona. Pepper Potts? I actually heard someone tell her friend "I can't wait for John Wick's romantic comedy." Her friend was like "Which rom-com?" to which she replied "Always Be My Maybe, c'mon we watched the trailer together." Her friend then said "Keanu Reeves, not John Wick" to which she replied "They're the same person, duh."
Oh yeah, it was Kevin they offed...good for him
I actually couldn't remember her character in Contagion though I am sure she and Matt were a couple...they offed her there...good for her
I'm sure there are a lot who would like to watch Kevin Spacey die in the current times.
After our Chernobyl fix, here is NatGeo’s The Hot Zone about the terrifying true story of the origins of the Ebola virus, from its discovery in a Central African forest to its arrival on U.S. soil.
Nuclear disaster, Ebola virus, what next? Climate change?
Didn't you comment on my post on that already? The are already 4 episodes up, going to check it out later.
For the next topic you forgot anti-vaxxers. LOL
Oh yeah Haha
Finished watching the miniseries last night. While it’s based on true events and both major characters are factual, the series tackling a major Ebola outbreak in the US was actually downplayed in the media and was hush-hush among major news outlets. This allowed the producers to play up the events to make it appear America can tackle an outbreak given the lack of protocols on disease control and decontamination. More like an “isn’t America so great right now” moment.
We never get to know what happened to the 4 people who contracted Ebola, or those others exposed to the disease, or what happened to Hazleton for its continued monkey research, or that the Philippines was major contributor to their research subjects. It surprised me that we had that large number of monkeys that we provide to research firms overseas. No wonder we don’t see monkeys anymore in our own forests.
Sad fact, money talks. It's something that our laws, if properly and strictly implemented, should be able to prevent. But the question now is, did we export all of the Macaque monkeys with Ebola Zaire? Or some are still in our forests? Scary.
On a related note, Nat Geo just released Going Viral : Beyond the Hot Zone, which is a documentary on the people and the situation surrounding Ebola. Lt. Col. Nancy Jaax is among those featured.
