I'm hoping to get on but the kids are still up and the house is a mess so I may just pop on later to say hi.

Consistent results in these quizzes prove that my Cottage Quiz team mates are crisis actors in the pocket of Crooked Curio.

Fun times and excellent quiz, Kern! Though I did not cover myself in glory, much fun was had.

Now back to Star Trek: The Next Generation comfort food in my grand rewatch. (Jesus Christ seasons 1 and half of 2 are mostly a slog though.)

No arguments there... that episode's so offensively cringingly wrong there's almost moments of hilarity. Just finished Unnatural Selection, a Pulaski heavy episode, which like most of Season 2 has a mix of promising moments and writing so bad it's hard to believe it came out of multiple drafts.

Happily Matter of Honour is next, the one where Riker goes on work-experience on a Klingon warship, and I'm pretty sure it's going to be exactly as excellent as I remember.

Also Colm Meany when he gets to do something other than push about imaginary sliders and raise his eyebrows is quiely God-tier.

Colm Meany is Chief O' Brian in everything we see.

Alpha Papa? Chief O' Brian

Layer Cake? Chief O' Brian

etc

And I'm happy with that. I always imagine that when he walks off screen in whatever film he's in he retreats to a small room and just stands there, for hours at and end, patiently, staring into the middle distance. Just like in Star Trek!

Round 5 killed me, not only because I didn't know any of the answers, but didn't understand most of the questions. Not that it made any difference to my position in the rankings.

Totally excellent, Malc, and all. I realised that this is the first time for at least a week that I've said more than "Hello" or "How do?" to anyone not in their 70s, and it has cheered me up (and I was fine, honest) immensely.

It would be, yeah - I don't mind doing another one, but if you want to go again before me that's fine too.

Or I could do this next one and you do one the week after??

Thanks guys, really enjoyed setting it and hosting it (apart from attempting to steal 20 of Dave's points, and forgetting to ask for the points a couple of times!). Looking forward to next week, whomever ends up hosting it!
