You paying for the ticket?
(Both plane AND movie)

Wot? Am I missing something about the plane?

Well if you're going to ask people to the movies you'd better be prepared to foot some of the bill!

I'll buy food and drinks. Image

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh I feel dense.

Well, I got about $50 to spare. Maybe fly cargo or 4th class?


I'm more of a 3rd class person thank you very much. [-(

Will $50 get you here in 3rd class? I'm not so sure

I don't know what to say about this show. It was INCREDIBLY confronting.

I have been waiting for that. I hope it will be good, and not be affected too much by Hollywood liberalism and idiotic SJWs. I won't be upset if it's not a remake of the original film, but it should follow the main points. On the plus side, it stars Bruce Willis and is written by Joe Carnahan, on the bad side it's directed by that worthless hack Eli Roth.

"Working" is a bit strong for a season that's only 7 episodes long. That's like, what, 2 hours and 20 minutes of content? Most movies are around that length.

And it's also kind of...unsatisfying. Like they were meant to have more episodes for this season. The last two seasons ended with massive battles with Zarkon, with Voltron just barely making it through. This one ended with...uh...a series of flashbacks to Zarkon's start of darkness. Lore and world building, sure, but it just makes the season feel anticlimactic. Probably because there's no actual climax to it.

At least season 4 is coming in two months.

Glad I wasn't the only one.

You just start settling in, then it's done.

Season 4 better make up for it.

I quite enjoyed it! Gave me a few (loud) laughs.

I have no idea where it's going, but I am looking forward to see if they "rip off" any other sci-fi franchises.

I'm fairly certain I'll enjoy Orville more than Discovery.

I'm also holding out hope for a pseduo-Dalek to appear. :-P

Episode 2 of Orville was great, one thing though...when the Cap & First Officer stepped onto that other ship & were beamed away! it proves that Transporter tech exists in the show...so it's weird why the Orville doesn't have any transporters on board for the crew to use(& I mean people! not replicators...which btw the Orville does have installed)

Yes. It was pretty good. Much better than the older one. This one actually scared me a little.
