Oh, the season premiere of Rebels is everything I love about Star Wars tabletop games condensed into an hour of TV.

Sure it. It almost makes me want to try some Star Wars RPGing again. Almost.

I finished the first half of Thunderbirds Are Go's first season last night and am loving the show. Yeah, I'm a little biased as the sets are made down here, but I really do think they've captured the essence of the original show. Yes, they could include Kayo (and Thunderbird S) a little more, but I'm guessing we'll see more of her in the second half for plot-specific reasons.

Independence Day: Resurgence Global Press Event.

It's like a Comic Con panel, with less people (and fans), but they're bringing back Goldblum, Hirsh, and Pullman so I'm happy.

Prostitution?  The CDC probably declares it illegal to prevent STD spreading.  And that's probably not a terrible idea.  They mandated STD testing in the Adult Film Industry and they STILL have HIV problems.  Arguments can be made that isn't dating just a social form of prostitution, and there is an argument to be had there.. but.. for the moment.. we'll find some new way to regulate sex for money.  Maybe license it like medicine or hair dressing.

There are two options currently in place around the world. In Scandinavia they made offering sexual services legal, but purchasing the same services illegal. That effectively flips the legal onus, allowing sex workers to see legal help without fear of ending up behind bars themselves.

Here in NZ, we went in another direction: we simply made prostitution legal (though forcing someone into prostitution is still illegal). There are limits on where sex work can happen, but other than that it's pretty open. 12 years on, we haven't devolved into a hive of sin and inequity. Sex workers even have a support organisation (the NZ Prostitutes' Collective) they can turn to, if needed.

It's interesting that the 'grazing' robots appear to be storing the plant material. Are they gathering it up for a human faction that still has access to advanced technology? It certainly raises some interesting questions.

Oh, and props for apparently having a female protagonist in the trailer.

Now that Jurassic World has escaped its pen and is running wild through cinemas worldwide, zoo keepers want to get in on the act...

And this was recently retweeted by James Gunn...

Sort of surprised this hasn't happened sooner.

Umm, anthropomorphic animals have been a staple of both Disney and Warner Brothers for a long time.

But I think I'll leave this here anyway.

We also have the first cast photo.

The fact that they're following a lot of the techniques used on Arrow and the Flash...

So much so that they've got the same production company behind all three shows. There's also a LOT implied by that trailer (per this fairly detailed breakdown) that makes it feel like they're setting the show up for a long, eventful run.

From the other side of the pond... W1A - nobody does self-parody as well as the BBC.

The battles in The Flash are tiny in comparison to those in your average MCU movie.
