    I really admire her and enjoyed one Mississippi . Too short of a series but I understand things happen.

    Amazing. What she said about Monica Lewinsky, what an incredible, respectful intelligent thing to say. Seriously, she is a class act.

    He turned right to her to apologize for the mom comment. I’m sure he just didn’t remember that her mom died when she had cancer. He’s so sweet though

    Look I’m all for women sticking up for women BUUTT Monica did have a consensual relationship with a man knowing he’s married and knowing it could hurt another woman so....what does that make her??

    • SunlightFire
      SunlightFire 7 months ago +1

      Azra BH I think the point is the media absolutely tore her apart and she was ridiculed for years while Bill Clinton remained relatively unharmed even though he had infinitely more power in that situation, with her being just a twenty-something intern and him being the freaking president. Yes she did wrong too, but her punishment was far more severe.

    5:50 -
    Stephen: " - 'cos you play your happy cards pretty close to your chest"
    Tig: (... haha - yes - the chest that I do not have anymore since I had that double mastectomy)
    I genuinely think this is what went through her mind for that split second.

    She'll be the Chief Engineer of The U.S.S. Hiawatha. Chief Engineer is the worst part to be if you can't get used to the Star Trek "technobabble". Really looking forward to seeing the new season and her though. This new Star Trek show is slightly more realistic as far as characters go. I hope she doesn't get killed off right away.

      The basic, core Roddenberry vibe to Star Trek is not in STD; "an optimistic vision of a future in which humankind not only prospers, but also fosters a world of peace and equality for all - a universal utopia." brbl-archive.library.yale.edu/exhibitions/utopia/ut15.html
      Why wouldn't you also be made to pay more money to watch it? Seems like an STD to me; screwing you over after you got screwed!!!

    To be fair, I watched some of the old star trek series and they don't say anything that makes sense. At one point they said a planet was like -350 degree celsius or something like that. Makes not sense.

    • Sajeanne
      Sajeanne 8 months ago

      I gotta add that ST is sci-fi, so they CAN use artistic license on these things... their point being - it was way too cold. ^_^

    • Nicholi
      Nicholi 8 months ago

      Yeah, absolute zero is -273 degrees celsius, that was why it made no sense to me. Neat fact about Triton. I didn't know that.

    • Sajeanne

      "Triton, is the coldest place that
      scientists have found so far. It is -235 degrees
      Celsius." www.dudley.gov.uk/EasysiteWeb/getresource.axd?AssetID=1229&type=full...
      Note the words, "so far." Triton is one of Neptune's moons, FYI.

    There's only one rule you need as Chief Engineer: Don't let William Riker rest his foot up on the warp core housing. That's how the Enterprise-D went through like, four Chief Engineers in its first season. _"Commander, wait, don't lean on that! ⚡️ARGH⚡️" 💀_

    "The texts you would get from your mother," "Yeah. Yeah, if she were alive." LMFAO. I love saying stuff like that to people about my dad. No one gets the humor, and yes my dad is deceased, I just have a dark sense of humor.

      Aella Lee she also did a 2 season sitcom on Amazon and it was about her Mom and how all that went down. All of the actors were awesome, especially her Step Dad. She wrote it so ask you can imagine it was dark and warped! LOL I love her dry wit. BUT, by far, her stand up (the info is in this video description), was the funniest I've seen of her yet.

    Nothing can let Bill Clinton off the hook, for he signed a legally-binding contract with his wife when he married her, AND he lied to the American people. That understood, Monica Lewinsky KNEW THAT HE WAS MARRIED when she did what she did. People seem to overlook this major detail. It's as if women are never held accountable for anything. Monica had a big role in what happened. She is not a victim.
