Does anyone else think that maybe the redesign of the Enterprise look a bit too modern or as one commenter put it “Star Trek, The iPod?”
Her example? South Park and the Simpsons of course.
Now I would be lying if I stated that I didn’t like cartoons. We all know how much of a Daria fan I am. (or was at least) Ditto for Kim Possible and the Avatar: The Last Airbender. (Note to self: try to find the last six episodes since I haven’t seen them yet.)
I would be very hard pressed though to state that any of those shows are for younger children. While some folks and groups think higher of Avatar, the violence of Avatar as well as Kim Possible set others off. (OK, that’s not the link I had in mind but it’s the only one I can find right off.) Of course some folks question Veggie Tales.
Parent seem to forget that past cartoons like Tom and Jerry had their violent moments as well. I’m not sure I would be turning to Yahoo Answers though as a source for parenting though. They also seem to forget that way back when, cartoons sent out a different message that also reflected the times.
Just random thoughts and links about what happened today. After the fold is the Flintstone’s Winston’s television advert.
Yesterday we had The War Prayer. Today, it’s “And the Sky Full of Stars.”
Sinclair is abducted by two mysterious beings. They probe his subconscious memory to learn what happened ten years ago during a space battle when Sinclair lost his memory for 24 hours.
A few days ago, I posted the Babylon 5 episode, Mind War. Today, here’s The War Prayer for your viewing.

Yesterday we had Babylon 5 – The Parliament of Dreams. Today we have Mind War. A genetically altered telepathic fugitive hides aboard Babylon 5 and seeks help escaping his pursuers before he mutates into a destructive superbeing. Catherine experiences an incredible encounter with an alien spacecraft.
Wow, I don’t have a video games category. /me gone to put one in there.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the Wii Fit told a 10-year-old she’s fat. What bothers me though is comments like “Only about 10% of children are truly overweight” when that clearly isn’t true. The father states that his daughter only weighs “six stone” but that still seems a bit heavy. Six stone for us Americans is 84 pounds.

I can’t remember how I came across this one but I got a chuckle out of it. Wish it was longer.
This is so much not safe for work for language and somewhat graphic violence.
Today, we add in Soul Hunter. A badly damaged ship is brought into the station, and the strange alien
inside is identified as a Soul Hunter – an immortal race who can sense
death and supposedly steal someone’s soul.
