Patrick Stewart from earth to the moon

We ran into Patrick Stewart in a pharmacy in Park Slope a couple of years ago. He has a brownstone in the area with his girl. Didn't know who was at the front of the line because it was a small independent pharmacy. Then we heard that voice. The pharmacist was asking if he was going to be in the new X men movie since his character had died in the last one. He said "In Science Fiction you never really die."

So true. So true.

He improves everything he's in. Even those booze ads he's in these days are funny.

I don't get the appeal. Is it the U Brit accent? Big deal. Christopher Plummer. He's another one everyone praises for being posh. A big nothing.

From the Earth to the Moon was a great show. I highly recommend it.

I like Patrick Stewart. He does not take himself all that seriously (unlike these child stars who think the world owes them adoration and constant affirmation, Stewart had to work for years to get where he is).

I still love that scene in Dune when he goes out to battle the Harkonnens holding a pug...a battle pug?

He was the first Star Fleet Captain who was a pussy right?

Sejanus rules. Right up until he doesn't:

That same evening, the Senate convened at the Temple of Concord and summarily condemned Sejanus to death. He was led from prison and strangled. His body was cast onto the Gemonian stairs, where the crowd tore it to pieces. Riots ensued, in which crowds hunted and killed anyone they could link to Sejanus. The Praetorians also resorted to looting, when they were accused of having conspired with the former prefect.

Plus ca change, plus c'est la même chose, etc., rinse repeat. Rhyme if necessary.

Captain Picard was not a pussy.
He didn't seduce busty scantily-clad aliens in every episode, however.
So YMMV.

True, but Jon Luc and Wesley's mom had something going on (I borrowed that from Fountains of Wayne).

Wesley was a nuisance. Also in real life.
