Come guardare tutto Star Trek

Multimedia   24.09.17  

La guida ragionata di Digg alla prolifica serie nata dalla fantasia do Gene Roddenberry per prepararsi al meglio all'arrivo della nuova serie Discovery.

Keep in mind there's close to 600 hours of TV and film here. If you're taking in one or two episodes every day, you're still looking at over a year of "Trek." If you're looking to pare that down to something a little more reasonable, you should absolutely feel free to use a skip guide. Some episodes are just plain bad — don't torture yourself.

Here's the watch order:

Star Trek: The Original Series
The Animated Series
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Territory
The Next Generation Seasons 1-7
Star Trek: Generations
Deep Space Nine Seasons 1-5
Voyager Seasons 1-2
Star Trek: First Contact
Deep Space Nine Seasons 6-7
Star Trek: Insurrection
Voyager Seasons 3-7
Star Trek: Nemesis
Star Trek (2009)
Star Trek: Into Darkness
Star Trek: Beyond

If you're not sure that a little '60s campiness is your thing, you can start with "The Next Generation" and loop back around to "The Original Series" later. This might seem like heresy to some, but "The Next Generation" is a lot closer in feel to modern television than "The Original Series." While the difference in presentation and production values shouldn't stop you from watch the best of original "Trek," it might be enough to turn off a complete newcomer.

Also, you're definitely better off if you have some appreciation for what the characters from "The Original Series" are like before you watch the movies in the "Kelvin" timeline that begins with 2009's "Star Trek." That way, you'll be able to pick out what's different about their personalities and what's stayed the same. "Beyond" has a few references to "Enterprise" in it, but for the most part the "Kelvin" films don't really tie much into the shows made after "The Original Series."

Come riguardare Twin Peaks ora che la terza stagione si è conclusa

Multimedia   04.09.17  

L'esaustiva guida di Digg per ricominciare Twin Peaks come in un nastro di Möbius senza perdersi neppure un indizio attraverso l'intera, onirica, esperienza televisiva, cartacea e su pellicola.

David Lynch and Mark Frost's "Twin Peaks" casts a long, owl-shaped shadow over the history of episodic television. It's not an exaggeration to say that "Twin Peaks" changed the medium, though far too many people leapfrog over that statement and try to claim that any "weird" show made after 1990 draws inspiration from Frost and Lynch. "Twin Peaks" itself tried to be a handful of different shows at once. When it succeeded at this multiplicity, "Twin Peaks" delighted, frightened, amused and utterly perplexed audiences. When it failed — and it did fail at points — the show smacked of self-parody, an unpleasant posture for a show that deftly split itself between complete sincerity and savvy genre deconstruction.

Few if any shows have come close to the same variety of tone, let alone the ability to shift from satire to gripping procedural to transcendent art to slapstick non sequitur without breaking a sweat. For much of its second season, "Twin Peaks" itself couldn't keep it up, leading to a string of dismal episodes and audience disinterest. This fall eventually damned the show to cancellation.

Even the follow up film "Fire Walk With Me" seemed to respond to the show's later messiness by focusing in on Laura, a character for whom even the rare lighter moments had dire context. The film's initial reception and performance at the box office buried the chance for the show's immediate revival. That was almost exactly twenty-five years ago.

Yesterday, "Twin Peaks" ended yet again. Summer 2017 saw the show take to Showtime for a highly anticipated third series, this time with a seemingly last-minute subtitle appended: "The Return." Unlike the original show, this iteration was written solely by Frost and Lynch, with Lynch in the director's seat for the entire 18-part run. Like the original it shattered expectations and, according to some, it surpassed the original series. Chances are slim that "Twin Peaks" will come back for another season... but that's what people said two decades ago too.

For now, the story is finished, with an ending its creators intended; let's get into it.
