I feel profound loneliness.
I am sick of curtailed social experiences.
I watched the 'Trial By Media' (2020) ep about the 'Subway Vigilante': in 1984 there was a contentious shooting on the subway. The Guardian Angels leader speaks, a lot. The shooter turned himself in. Was he dull and needy? People are critical and righteous and there is overwhelming rage. The shooting suggests a level of fear and judgement. The shooter is in receipt of reaction and there is a negative impact. Was it in cold blood? Who is Goetz?
There are deeply complex issues and the city was seething with discontent. There was social unrest and highly erratic behaviour. Crime causes anxiety. He's hugely famous and acquitted. There are unnecessary psychological burdens and this case was fraught with existential anguish. People are terribly disappointed. In 1996, one of the victims sued Goetz.
People are treated with abuse and there are consistent failures and personalised abuse and disappointment and sheer frustration. Goetz proved unreliable and there were ramifications beyond the individual.

I rewatched 'Last Resort' 1x11 and 1x12
'Damn The Torpedoes'
Chaplin tries to be implausibly impressive. The crew don't like the repercussions of the choices they're making. Why did Kendal go back to the island? Kendal emotes. The Chinese send a supply ship. Chaplin and go are on a downhill road. Kendal is in obvious torment. The amount of misery caused by the choices that were made in 1x01 grows. Conditions are worsening. Kendal has had a defining traumatic transformation. The CIA mole is revealed.
Chaplin's continued defiance makes things worse. How did James and Kendal get back to the island? Kendal has a shredded reputation and this causes resentment. Ernie Hudson guest stars. The island is under interdiction. The coup planning is going down about as well as you'd expect. No one seems to care Pakistan has been nuked. Chaplin has begrudgery and ignores Kendal's psychological stress. Chaplin is icy and controlling.
One isn't fascinated by the intrigue. This show was oddly prophetic and Kendal goes erratic and dangerous. Chaplin and the Chinese rep have an earnest-off. There are calculated exchanges and an innate preposterousness. This was not a tale of human alienation in the grim machine age. Kylie sucks so hard and her acting is blatantly bad.
People are seditious and have dangeorus opinions. There is talk of rare earth minerals. The island criminal has delusions of grandeur. Sophie's entire existence is absurdity and ludicrous projections of the ego. This was not appealing or exciting. The COB sits around doing illicit and covert manoeuvrings. This was underlit. The truth is masked. Is there a medic on the sub?

'The Poiny End Of The Sphere'
Kendal's incoherent but not enough to make Chaplin worry. Nobody lives actual fulfilling lives. Kylie lazy and insincere and Chaplin has meanness. Kendal's earned the right to some performative melodrama. Kylie admits she's just a gun salesman. Kendal is vengeful and things are untenable. Kendal has shattered illusions.
There are bad VFX and the crew face an uncertain future. There is a sense of the preposterous and Chaplin alienates Kendal, who is vulnerable to his distain. The COB and Serrat plot. Kendal has a bleak existence and the still unseen POTUS has taken compassion out of leadership and mercy out of judgment. Chaplin has a mole in the COB's gang. This was unsatisfying.
Chaplin has utter righteous rage. This was not indisputably brilliant. Kendal warns against the negative consequences and plots something potentially ruinous with forced nonchalance. Prospects are grim and Kendal is no longer a self-doubting eager-pleaser. There is no moral law and there are ideological stances and the crew's respect for Chaplin can easily tip into fear. What would ordinarily be a deeply unsettling conversation between Chaplin and Kendal could escalate. The coup goes horribly wrong and Grace is dim.

I watched 2 more 'Star Trek: The Animated Series' eps:
'The Slaver Weapon'
Written by Larry Niven and based on a story of his. There is talk of the slavers, a long gone race. Only Sulu, Uhura and Spock apepar in this ep. They are in peril from a race with moral myopia. They are wholly without support. There is no great urgency in this utter tosh. This was dumb. Nobody is silently traumatised and there is unknowable stress and savagely demanding baddies du jour.
“Life support belts.”
“A race now dead.”
“A billion years means nothing in there.”
“It will not be pleasant.”
“Think of eating a raw vegetable.”
“Try to look harmless.”
“You are meat for our tables.”
'Eye Of The Beholder'
This was a load of rubbish and dafter than ever. McCoy makes intemperate negative observations. There are aggressive declarations. Kirk, Spock and McCoy look for a lost crew. This was not profound art and it was superficial and sad. Aliens intend to provoke and the trio are in peril. There is no explosive escalation. The trio end up in a zoo. Aliens stoke alarm and Shatner hams it up even as a caroon. This was supurious.
