The Menagerie (Star Trek: The Original Series)

I recently watched The Menagerie (Star Trek: The Original Series). I’m sure I’ve seen it before, but it’s great to see it again, an interesting way of using the original first pilot episode in the actual series. I know it’s old, but it’s a good story and it has some interesting ideas too.

I have to say I’m enjoying seeing these old episodes again.

V, the original mini-series

I thought I’d give this a little look and see what it was like. I can remember watching the original series and it being amazing, so I thought I’d check if my memory was completely coloured by the 80’s. It was. V the mini-series is pretty bad by today’s standards. I’m sure that back in the 80’s we may have found it an amazing TV event, and it probably was, but by today’s standards it seems hard to comprehend.

I’m not entirely sure I can keep watching it really, but we’ll see.

Almost at the end of my Spotify trial

So, I’m getting to the end of my trial period and starting to wonder about whether to continue with the premium service or not. I have to admit that it’s very useful to have playlists on my iPhone. I haven’t particularly made use of SPAPPS so far, with the exception of the Last.fm app which is quite handy too.

So, is it worth the money? That’s the big question right.
