In all of the Star Trek viewing and Dance with Dragons reading, I didn't get a chance to write about the new season of Hell's Kitchen starting up. I enjoy this show a lot more than MasterChef, so I'm glad to see it back on.

And with that, the Space Shuttle Program is over. This mission has been going on since before I was born; it's weird to think that I now live in an America without NASA Shuttle launches. I wonder how much of our exploration future is in the hands of private companies vs. whatever they decide to pursue at NASA. I think this program went on far too long; it's past time for this to come to a close. But I can't stop thirsting for the next step. And since there isn't a clear direction, I can't help feeling like either we've been defeated, or our nerve has given out.

A review of the films I've seen this past week.

I'm going to be honest: this season, the episodes are running together just a little bit. It seems like every episode the writers are messing with time or the perception of time or the minds of the crew or reality itself, and it's starting to feel more and more like slight variations on the same theme. Jonathan Frakes was pretty vocal about how the real money was being spent on the first season of Deep Space Nine instead of TNG, and it kind of shows. Now it does feel, on some level, like the writers aren't as interested in the characters.
