All these alternate lives for Picard and company. Q is up to something.

I'm very intrigued by the gritty reboot potential suggested by the phrase "Christopher Robin's ex-wife."

I was kinda meh on the whole thing until I got to the one where Batman teams up with Reggie Watts.

I gotta say, an episode where they all had knives would be pretty good.

This blog is like procedurally generated Liar Town Netflix posts. The serendipity makes me feel good.

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin cheated on Alice.
Alice is marrying one of the guard.
"A soldier's life is terrible hard,"
                                       Says Alice.

and everyone will pay.

That's a nice addition to a lot of movie taglines.

Love Actually: "Love actually is all around...and everyone will pay."
Amelie: "One person can change your life forever...and everyone will pay."
Mamma Mia!: "With every wedding come a few surprises...and everyone will pay."

So while I have seen my share of loopy movie descriptions on Netflix, I haven't seen this specific "random fifth line" phenomenon. In what circumstances would one see this?

"When a crown is stolen from the Crystal empire, Twilight Sparkle takes on a whole new identity, a human teenage girl, in her quest and everyone will pay."

This is a goldmine.
