    I only clicked on the source spoiler tag. Once I did, ignored the rest of it.

    That's what I was thinking. It all sounds just generic enough to be true.

    I"m already irritated with this woman (Carol Marcus?) from the first trailer with the ridiculous scream 8-}

    You are missing out. Pick up TNG on bluray, and hang in until season 3. It's a treat.

    JJ sprinkled a ton of references and homages to the TOS movies and series in the new movie. I would be shocked if the cheesy horror scream-at-camera in the last trailer isn't an homage to the episode those pics are from. In the camera zooms in after the scream, it'll be undeniable.

    The Blu-rays are ****ing expensive. I wouldn't recommend buying the first two seasons (with probably not even 10 "good" episodes) at those prices to a fan, let alone someone trying to get into the series. Netflix is by far the better option.

    EDIT: Plus, it would be wise to skip most season 1 and 2 episodes anyway.

    Netflix is my favorite :D

    I'm just not into Trek that much.. So I guess I'm in the camp who likes this as an action movie and won't be bothered if most of it isn't in space.

    Hulu is showing every episode of Trek, all the series, until the end of the month!

    Except Orson Scott Card is a terrible human being and there are talks of boycotting the movie!

    And the Ender books aren't even that spectacular.

    Ender's Game itself is pretty spectacular. I never got much beyond that...

    I liked Ender's Game, Shadow, and Speaker for the Dead when I read them at 15. Not sure how I'd like them now.

    The series gets progressively worse the more pages are added to it, including when OSC realizes this and tries to desperately rehash the early stories by merely switching the viewpoint character (read:switching the pronoun used in sentences).

    The series as a whole is a disaster.

    Warning, if you are even slightly sensitive to spoilers, do not read the link in the spoiler tags. And probably don't open any spoiler tags for a while. You have been warned.

    So this broke today. Discuss, as you will.

    Technically you didn't even need to hide the link behind spoiler tags since the link itself doesn't hint at what spoilers are contained within (unless of course the URL changed itself since you posted). Link just properly warns you of spoilers if you click.
