    I finally decided to write a comment on your blog. I just wanted to say good job. I really enjoy reading your posts.

    Thanks. I just peeked over at your site, and enjoyed the Potter-Skywalker comparison. I think you’re right that Potter has the potential of creating a vast world of post-Rowling novels and such, if handled well.

    Ken, my wife and I got a new 40″ LCD last month, and we can’t believe how much better everything looks. I’m with you when it comes to Star Trek vs. Star Wars; I like both franchises, but Star Trek definitely needs to do more in the action department if it wants to keep up. The new movie seems to be a step in the right direction though.

    I would have bought the 40″ but it was a little pricier, and my living room is more long than wide, so a t.v. that is too big could be just as bad as sitting up too close to the set. Unless of course I rearranged the furniture to put the tv further away. But I didn’t think about that. 🙂

    The other problem for Star Trek aside from action is formula. There is a target-rich environment for Star Trek to explore aside from the basic exploration bit. I think Yoshida once suggested a Section 31-styled show, and I thought a CSI-type Trek would be interesting. Action is a good substitute in terms of the movie franchise, but if Trek ever wants to get back on TV, I think it should rethink its obsession with the starship-explores-galaxy theme.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Star Trek: Starfleet Academy on TV.
