GARTH: On your knees before me! All the others before me have failed. Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Hitler, Li Kwan, Krotus! All of them are dust! But I will triumph! I will make the ultimate conquest!
HOLMES: Punch me in the face.
WATSON: Punch you?
HOLMES: Yes, punch me, in the face. Didn't you hear me?
WATSON: I always hear "punch me in the face" when you're speaking, but it's usually subtext.
aught: I'm dithering about seeing it because 1) I'm still holding a grudge over S6 of LOST, and 2) I'm afraid it will be fun and then I'll be disgusted with myself afterward.
zippy: I am a big Star Trek fan. I enjoyed this movie by pretending it was written by children, directed by someone whose last gig was two seasons of "To Catch a Local Predator," yet with the whole shebang acted by real pros.
The reason people watch television series is because, on the whole, they like the continuity of the series and look forward to future episodes because they expect it. We don't wonder, "will Spock be rational and logical this time?" but rather "how will he be rational and logical this time?" We expect Kirk to punch people in the face and Picard to overthink everything while sipping tea. Without this continuity, you do not have characters of any consequence.
