It’s the season of gratitude! Unlike many, I don’t actually love Thanksgiving.

However, I do appreciate that many people try to stop and take a moment to be grateful for the good things in their lives. In the spirit of the season, I’ve got some of the top fandoms for which I’m most thankful. Keep reading to see if any of mine are yours, too.

Fandom Funnies: Happy Birthday, TNG!

by T. Mack

It’s Star Trek week! Well, it is in my heart, anyway. Sunday brought us the brand new show, Star Trek: Discovery. And yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of my favorite Star Trek series, The Next Generation.

ST TNG

In honor of the event, Screen Junkies has given us a magnificent TNG Honest Trailer. If you remember the show, this will take you back. If you don’t remember it, you’ll still recognize at least some of the faces and marvel at how young they looked. Except Patrick Stewart, who looks EXACTLY THE SAME! Seriously, this show aired three decades ago and he was pretty old back then. Anyway…

Happy 30th, TNG!

These include the three recent films which rebooted the series by featuring a new generation of actors playing the original characters.

This series feels like it veers away from what I believe to be some of the fundamental features of the universe. And that’s a mystery to me. Stick with me and I’ll explain.
