Personality test

From hobsonphile, a Myers-Briggs test under another name which makes me... yes, the Analytical Thinker AKA INTP. What a surprise.

I object to its assumption that all humans are male, and also to the inclusion of astrology in the list of interests (which is fairly accurate apart from that and a few others like meditation and politics). After all they say I'm logical and sceptical. Perhaps they meant astronomy?

SF DVDs

Last week I rented and watched season 1 of Quantum Leap because I've only ever seen a couple of eps and wanted something undemanding and entertaining. Well, except for the boxing episode which I skipped because giving people brain injuries is not a sport. Sadly, the first part of season 2 is out so, inspired by having seen Claudia Christian as a 50s dame, I resorted to my Babylon 5 DVDs--and I really don't think they've dated at all. I've seen three episodes, and yay for Ivanova, Garibaldi, and my favourites, Londo, G'Kar, and Vir. Last night's ep was Born to the Purple which I remembered thinking was fun when I first saw it, but with hindsight, not so much.

I also have two boxed sets of Star Trek eps chosen by a fan collective, a nice selection I shall work my way through. I was disconcerted to see Spock's father as the Romulan commander last night in Balance of Terror; I suppose it's how Mark Lenard got the part.
