The astute reader might have noticed that there is a new Star Trek related RSS feed in the sidebar of my blog and wondered what that is about. Well, I grew up watching The Next Generation and loved it, I also very much enjoyed Deep Space Nine when I watched it about 10 years ago, but I've never watched the original series (except for a few random episodes here and there). I thought it would be fun to go back and watch all of those classic episodes and write a blog about it while I'm doing it.
But why blog about it? I was thinking about an old roommate of mine who kept a spreadsheet when he watched TNG giving scores for each episode. It was nice as it gave him a quick reference if he wanted to go back at check out his favorite episodes, and being the nerds we were, we had a lot of fun "discussing" the rating he gave certain episodes. I was going to keep such a spreadsheet, but then I realized, blogging is fun, and maybe some people would be interesting in giving their own ratings and we can have fun arguing about which episodes are the best.
So if this sounds like fun to you, come check out my new blog startrekisawesome.blogspot.com. I'm going to start with one episode a week (pushed live on Wednesdays) and we will see how that goes.
