"It was at this event Nichols was told a fan wanted to talk to her. As you might have guessed, the fan turned out to be King, who told her how much he loved her and Star Trek and how it was the only show he and his wife Corretta would allow their two young children to stay up late to watch (Star Trek aired at 9 p.m.). She thanked King and told him how much she’d miss the show and her co-stars. He was taken aback, saying, “You cannot!” Nichols, naturally, was taken aback herself. He continued to tell her she had to realize how important Roddenberry’s message was, explaining that “for the first time on television, we are seen as we should be seen,” and that she was a role model, as hers was not a “black” role, it was a role that African-American actors and actresses normally would never get. He continued with the powerful line, “Gene Roddenbery has opened a door for the world to see us. If you leave, that door can be closed.” Nichols took his message to heart. She spent Sunday actually somewhat irritated at the situation, essentially asking the question, “Why me?” However, on Monday she went back to Roddenberry and asked for her resignation letter back."
"Here's one cub reporter who could bearly contain herself as she watched a wildlife photographer at work. As Dean Swartz took pictures of a black bear family in Minnesota, America, he noticed one juvenile bear watching him very closely. After about 45 minutes the bear decided to have a go as well and ambled over to the tripod. Backing off, Dean used another camera on his shoulder to carry on taking pictures as the animal investigated his expensive equipment."
"Richard reigned from 1483 to 1485, and occupies a unique place in England's long line of colorful rulers. He was the last king to be killed in combat, at the Battle of Bosworth Field, by his successor, Henry VII. His death ended the Plantagenet dynasty and ushered in the long era of the Tudors, including Henry VIII and Elizabeth I."
There are some good things in #Prometheus, acting. set design, sporadic ideas but boy does the editing and writing go south as the film moves along.
-- SPOILERS -- Example(s): biologist finds dead alien. What does biologist, a man who of science who has studied and wondered about his life all his life do when he finds an inanimate corpse unlike any ever encountered? He is like, "yo, dawg, I need to like get out of here as fast as I can, See ya later, home slice."
And we can't forget the all knowing Captain that with almost no information (2 infected crewman) realizes that this is a base to manufacture Weapons of Mass Destruction and that nothing can be allowed to leave.
It goes on and on. It is a poorly strung together narrative with some nice scenes and set pieces
I dreamed I watched a show that opened with David Lynch robot dancing in Black and White with his shadow to spoken word by Shel Silverstein. Donald Sutherland was the villain, Kiefer the hero, and it was frustrating because neither would blow away a low level thug working for Donald when they had the chance, so I turned the channel
I just dreamt I was Santa, and I had a pump action, laser rifle with which is just put down a pack of wild jackals. Helena Bonham Carter was not amused and marched toward me in black lace. I could feel Christmas tick towards every person alive as if it was tied to them and to me.
