Wait I'm confused hack-san comes before rocketear but it seems like it got uploaded after rocketear (sorry if I'm wrong didn't watch episodes yet) does that mean the episodes are out of order?

attack on titan, but they are actors (au)
↳ because sometimes it’s okay to be delusional
warnings: season 4 spoilers, please read at your own risk :)
Tumblr media
erwin buys bulk orders of coffee or tea before coming to set, and usually orders food or drinks for the staff as they are all working
sometimes levi sleeps in his car in between filming days because he is so tired but doesn’t want to go home
the director hates when connie and sasha are on set together because they are so restless and loud and irritating, but in an endearing kind of way
eren has broken his odm gear costume more times than he can count with fingers
contrary to his character, levi is actually a super sound guy who everybody likes to work with
mikasa is quite clumsy on set and once sprained her ankle after falling off a roof
jean films around set hoping that his clips make it on the behind the scenes clips for the movie (they do)
whenever they win awards at award shows, they make erwin deliver the speech
reiner likes to bother people when they’re in hair and wardrobe
gabi really struggled to film the 8th episode of the fourth season
erwin and levi often make hilarious bloopers together because they are so close in real life
and zeke and levi have a very humorous dynamic and are constantly shit-talking one another during press releases or online
it was eren’s birthday during filming and everybody chipped in to get him a cake and he started crying
half of the blooper reals are springlestein bothering people
because they’re still minors, gabi and falco (and the other warrior candidates) had to study on set together in their trailers
even after they died in season 1, fallen characters like marco and mina still come to set to cheer people on or just to see what’s happening, either bringing food or drink or to pick someone up or drop them off
sometimes zeke just improvs lines because he can’t remember them
pieck likes to jump out on all fours to scare people
during episode 8, floch accidentally hit gabi for real and cried about it for about half an hour, worried he had actually hurt her
annie couldn’t stop laughing during scenes where armin spoke to her in the crystal
when jean confronts marlowe and hitch in the woods, he hadn’t planned to actually fall over but he tripped and it made it into the final cut
bertholdt cannot ride horses and so half of the time it’s a body double filling in for him
sasha and armin choreographed a dance routine to the first opening song and it became a tiktok dance trend
moblit takes photos of everybody on set and wants to publish a book at the end full of behind the scenes photos and clips
reiner and jean always steal things from set and then deny it when they’re called out
annie is half russian and sometimes she cusses out the other actors in russian and it creates a little bit of tension
connie was the creator of the conkasa trend and it is a now a running joke amongst them all
mikasa cries when she sees people dressed up as her at premieres, she finds it so heartwarming
the cast like to colour coordinate at events and when season 4 came out, they unveiled their trench coats on the red carpet and were trending on twitter for almost twenty four hours
all the cast genuinely do most of their stunts, or at least try to unless absolutely advised against it
it is always colt or floch who accidentally post spoilers online, to the point where they had to go on a strict social hiatus while filming
yelena gives gabi piggy back rides around set and is really great with the child actors
zeke has no idea what the plot of any season is because he only reads his scenes in the script and didn’t read the manga/original plot
sasha and connie read fan fictions for the cast and find it hilarious reading them out loud
hange goes on instagram live around set
to get into character, ymir and historia went on several dates before filming to establish a connection 
the 104th all have photographs in the weird season 3 torture chair
bertholdt always accidentally breaks things on set and tries to pretend he hasn’t but everybody saw that he did
jean had a crush on carla and eren would not let him live it down
the cast have been banned from coming to watch crying scenes being filmed because when armin had to reveal to mikasa that eren had been eaten in season 1, reiner and annie couldn’t stop giggling in the background
reiner studied and researched his character’s personality traits and disorders to make a realistic performance and he had to go to therapy after getting too into character for season 4
erwin is the only cast member from the main show to appear in junior high
when filming his ova scenes, jean and sasha genuinely cooked each of their dishes to make the scene more realistic and personal
connie asks if he can play music on the speakers while they’re assembling set or getting into costume and it’s always a horrendously terrible playlist of songs
falco was very excited when fortnite asked if they could release attack on titan skins for an exclusive attack on titan fortnite event
eren, armin, mikasa, connie, levi and erwin were available for the wired autocomplete interviews, but the rest of the cast were jealous that they didn’t get to do one, so marco created versions for each cast member and filmed them in between takes and uploaded them onto youtube (each are at least forty minutes long, they made the most of the time)
zeke, yelena and farlan are all australian
whenever a cast member dies, the cast (and crew) throw a large party in one of the empty lots on site and they all end up drunk and hungover the next day
eren has a photograph of all the cast in his wallet
all of the cast have either made out with each other or slept with each other, and they don’t try to hide it anymore
also, all of the cast are very protective of their child co-stars and were very outspoken in support of gabi and falco after episode 8
whenever they go abroad for press conferences, they try to push questions onto whoever can speak the native language of the country. for example, when they go to japan, they push the questions onto mikasa because she is japanese. in france, they desperately look towards jean. in germany they want eren to speak for them
he doesn’t know HOW it made it into the final cut, but when the scouts make it to the ocean, you can see jean get taken out by a wave in the background followed by levi hysterically laughing
whenever they forget their lines, they tend to either sing or pull a funny face or do improv, trying not to ruin the take but in the end it’s worthless
they all hate wearing the boots because they’re so uncomfortable
erwin dances on set to embarrass everybody
the 104th are pretty relevant and relatable and so often quote random funny vines or tiktoks around set or film videos together
when they first met, floch and eren did not like each other but eventually they became friends
porco likes to flirt with people around set
mikasa, eren and armin feel like they’ll be best friends for life after filming
erwin and levi blow kisses at each other when they’re filming
their bloopers are so funny and there are so many that they had to include them all in a separate disc
hange and levi were honestly crying when erwin died
marco couldn’t stop giggling filming his death scene and reiner, annie and bertholdt eventually got fed up because filming that scene was so traumatic and heavy
zeke likes to fight with interviewers and fans during comic con panels
jean and eren obnoxiously flirt and call each other pet names around set. jean will be coming out of wardrobe yelling “eren, my beloved, where are you?” “over here, sweetheart”
connie walks around saying “stan loona” in reply to anything anybody says to him
instead of hiring a male actor to play historia’s lover in the stables, it is actually ymir in disguise since historia and ymir began to date in real life between filming
mike actually has no sense of smell so he finds it hilarious that he plays a character who sniffs everybody
reiner falls asleep on set a lot and wakes up to doodles on his face
bertholdt sings when they eat lunch
erwin forgot he was wearing a green screen arm and in so many takes he began moving it around and they had to cut great takes because he began talking using both hands
sasha didn’t mean to punch mikasa’s boob when filming the fight scene over meat but the director liked it so he kept it in
jean brings his dog to set and now falco and gabi are very attached to him
due to hange being non binary, the wardrobe and makeup department were very strict on making sure that it translated correctly on screen
eren and reiner have an andrew lincoln/norman reedus friendship
the season 4 cast were very nervous to be new additions and so answer questions on panels very seriously, in comparison to the original cast who gave up being serious and now troll everybody
pieck and gabi are like genuine sisters on set and after gabi films with falco at the braus stables, pieck always stands on set to watch with a smile
filming the attack on marley scene for season 4 was chaotic because the cast kept fooling around with their titan dummies
levi couldn’t perfect holding the mug and as a result broke at least five mugs
orou biting his tongue was not scripted
hitch is always late to shoot her scenes
bertholdt hates watching himself on screen so he hasn’t seen any of the final products
the actor who plays sasha’s father is her father in real life
connie is british

Urusei Yatsura Invades Our Hearts with 38 Years of Sci Fi Hijinks
  Thirty eight years ago today, the first episode of Urusei Yatsura debuted on Fuji TV, and anime history would never be the same. Based on the breakout hit manga by Rumiko Takahashi, Urusei Yatsura would go on to run for 195 TV episodes, 6 theatrical films, and 12 original animation videos, with the final animated installment to date being released in Japan in 2008.
  The story of Lum, the invader girl from beyond the stars, has left an indelible stamp on the world of anime, but many of the younger generation of Western anime fans may wonder why this green-haired oni girl in the tiger-striped bikini has achieved such an iconic status. What makes Urusei Yatsura so special? What gives the series such longevity?
    Urusei Yatsura, a pun that translates to “Those Obnoxious Aliens”, begins with a humble high school student: Ataru Moroboshi, whose name is another pun meaning “To Be Hit By a Falling Star." Ataru is perhaps the most unlucky human being in the galaxy, and his ill fortune is matched only by his lecherousness, for his one goal in life is to woo as many girls as possible.
  A buffoon, a coward, and a creep, Ataru is a terrible protagonist whose complete lack of positive characteristics is overbalanced by an indefatigable pursuit of every remotely attractive woman to cross his path. One day, this would-be Lothario is selected at random to defend the Earth from an armada of alien invaders from Planet Oni by challenging their champion to a match of “oni gokko” (or “tag”), with the fate of humanity resting on the outcome of the game.
    Unfortunately for Ataru, his opponent is Lum Invader, an alien princess and the daughter of the leader of the invasion force. Although she's a scantily-clad beauty with a strange accent - and thus a target for Ataru's lust - Lum is also capable of flying and firing bolts of lightning from her hands. Ataru is completely out-matched, but after his childhood friend and quasi-love interest, Shinobu, offers to marry Ataru if he succeeds in saving the Earth, Ataru resorts to new lows of dirty trickery in order to triumph.
  When Ataru finally manages to grab Lum by the horns, he shouts out that he can finally get married, and Lum mistakes his enthusiastic declaration as a marriage proposal. And so Lum moves into the Moroboshi household, bringing her UFO, her friends and relatives, and all sorts of extraterrestrial weirdness along with her. Not wanting to be tied down to just one girl, Ataru constantly tries to ditch his new fiancée and go a-flirting, earning Lum's ire and a barrage of electric shocks for his intended infidelity.
    This simple set-up carried Urusei Yatsura for 34 collected manga volumes and 5 years' worth of TV anime episodes, directed first by Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) and then by Kazuo Yamazaki, and animated by Studio Pierrot and Studio Deen.
  With a combination of crazy characters, science fiction strangeness, copious references to Japanese myths / folktales / urban legends, slapstick comedy, romantic antics, and terrible puns, the series won the hearts of anime fans for generations, to the point where even nearly forty years later, Urusei Yatsura still inspires new merchandise, such as novelty foods, clothing, and life-sized statues of Lum.
  Urusei Yatsura is the ur-Takahashi teen romance. The sometimes tender, often antagonistic love / hate relationship between Lum and Ataru serves as the prototype for similar couples in Rumiko Takahashi's other series, such as Ranma and Akane in Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha and Kagome in Inuyasha. But despite the long shadow that the series casts, younger fans outside of Japan might not know very much about it.
    It's mostly a question of access: although North Carolina-based distributors AnimEigo released most of the series on VHS and all of the OAVs (except the 2008 “The Obstacle Course Swim Meet” special), TV episodes, and films (except Urusei Yatsura 2: Beautiful Dreamer) on DVD, their license to the series lapsed in 2011, and the DVDs were only initially available through a special pre-order system, so few fans can claim to own the entire series.
  At the time of this writing, the only in-print anime of Urusei Yatsura in the United States is the Discotek Bluray and DVD release of Urusei Yatsura 2: Beautiful Dreamer, which is an outstanding film in its own right, but not really the best introduction to the madness that is Lum and company, if only because a lot of people will be left scratching their heads at the “Decadent Third Reich Cafe” joke, in which Ataru's home room class decides to sponsor a WWII-themed cafe for their school festival, complete with Nazi iconography and a functioning Panzer tank.
    Old-school fans such as myself (I'm two weeks older than the premiere of the series) still hold out hope that someone will decide to rescue the license to Urusei Yatsura, but the series' age combined with a presumably high licensing cost (the series is still popular in Japan) makes that seem like an unlikely investment. For fans with the requisite resources, there's also a Bluray release in Japan.
  But for the rest of us who want to get our sci fi romantic comedy fix, Viz Manga is re-releasing a remastered, English language version of Rumiko Takahashi's original Urusei Yatsura manga in omnibus form, so we can wish the series a happy 38th anniversary in our own special way.
  Happy birthday, Urusei Yatsura, and thanks for the memories. May you never lose that spark.

Winter 2018 Final Impressions
I’m a month late, as usual (whoops!), but here’s my final thoughts on the animes I watched this past season! 
The “reviews” will be in alphabetical order!
3-gatsu no Lion S2 - 9.0 / 10 (A)
This second season of 3-gatsu was great! It’s just… a really great drama show about fighting depression (& a bunch of other character storylines)!
First off... THE BULLYING ARC WAS REALLY GOOD
extremely complicated, emotionally complex… this arc brings all sorts of emotions & angles into the forefront
multiple perspectives too: Hina’s, Rei’s, the bullied girl’s, the bully’s, the teachers’, and Akari too!
The art style can pull off both thick-outlined / bright colored style and watercolor-esque style incredibly well
it really is beautiful how it can visually portray both light-hearted and emotionally intense scenes
This season continues to show how good it is at character development for characters both main & supporting!
We get to see Rei moving through the ranks as a shogi player
and also moving through the ranks of conquering his depression! He’s improved more than ever before!
We get to learn about the white-haired master player (Souya); I liked how he has his own quicks and challenges he has in his daily life
Along with the other head shogi guy (Yanagihara)! (& how he shoulders his legacy for his friends)
Even the last episode offered some perspective from the foster mom about Rei & her kids
this show is just… really good at making normally-hated characters sympathetic, hot damn
Aside from bullying arc, this season also showed Hina preparing for the transition to high school
The finale episode was nice and sweet, with Hina saying goodbye to Takahashi and even getting a haircut!
This continues to be one of the best drama anime in recent years! Not to mention SHAFT’s best show since Madoka Magica :3
Cardfight!! Vanguard G: Z - 7.5 - 8.0 / 10 (C+)
And so ends the G series of Cardfight Vanguard… this final season I’ll say though is kind of a mixed bag
The plot had interesting ideas and moments at times, but the execution and pacing left a bit to be desired
though I will say it was definitely better than last season (CFV G NEXT)
This season didn’t waste any time getting to the main plot, as Chrono has to face off against a Diffrider right away
the diffrider stuff is continued from last season, but for the most part, it’s a new plot kicking off!
The rollout of all the new Diffrider Apostles (& them showing their strength) definitely made them look like powerful foes
not to mention the Zeroth Dragons, which were also shown to be powerful and very risky to use
Also knowing that anyone in the main cast could end up being The Vessel added some intrigue as well
the reveal that Kazuma would be the vessel definitely was a well executed twist imo~
However the pacing in places felt a bit too fast for me… the Relics subplot felt like it wrapped up too quickly, for example
the final fight against Gyze also kinda felt rushed… Gyze didn’t even have any dying words after his defeat :/
As a final season specifically, I feel like it kinda pales in comparison to Stride Gate, unfortunately
The cast was also kinda hit and miss in terms of how well they were utilized in the plot
some of the apostles definitely had more screen time than others (gredora only got like… two episodes)
plus gastille (the supposed apostle leader) got beaten sooner than like 3 other ones???
some villains carry over from last season too, such as Noa (Chaos Breaker) and the red-head punk kid
I liked all the new villains this season, personality-wise! (Also Yukari Tamura in there is a plus)
also no Am and Luna this season, really…
the previously established OG cast were integrated fine, for the most part
including Aichi and Kai getting the kill against Chaos Breaker Dragon
but the final episodes kinda just shoe-horn in a bunch of cameos that just didn’t feel natural :/
it just felt like “OH SHIT, this is the last season actually! Quick, throw in a bunch of cameos!”
this also applies to G characters, which makes less utilized characters (like Am & Luna, as mentioned before) look out of place :(
Sure, I’m saying a bunch of negative stuff right now, but I REALLY LOVE THIS CAST… I JUST WANT THE BEST FOR THEM
It’s the main reason I love CFV G, after all~
This season was definitely an improvement over NEXT for sure! The plot was interesting, I just wish the conclusion was better
The final episode basically just felt like an OVA, really… aside from the last scene, it didn’t really feel like an epilogue at all
I guess it just bums me out bc the original series got a good epilogue episode, so I know they could do it here, too…
In any case, I’M GONNA MISS THIS CAST, BIG TIME ;A;
In any case, this was a decent season to end the G series with! Not the strongest, but not the weakest either.
I’m gonna look back on my time with CFV G fondly for sure, if for nothing else than the great ensemble cast :’)
It’s gonna be weird going back to the OG cast for sure… I arguably liked the G cast better than the OG one :’D
Osomatsu-san S2 - 8.0  / 10 (B)
The consensus among fans seems to be that this season wasn’t as good as the first season
As for me, I… probably agree with that (though I still enjoyed this season!)
As with most comedy anime, whether the jokes land is pretty subjective. I feel like I didn’t laugh as hard this season? IDK
There were more “seasonal/holiday”-based episodes this time around (i.e. summer, new year’s, etc.)
What stays the same though is that this show is at its best when featuring the main brothers themselves
Skits involving the side characters (like Iyami, Dayon, etc.) didn’t make me laugh much…
I will say though that I enjoyed the second half of the season more than the first half~
Enough about the negatives, let’s talk about this season’s memorable skits / episodes!
The premiere was really good, as it poked fun at the huge popularity the show unexpectedly got xD
plus a bunch of references that *aren’t* gonna get them removed from streaming sites this time!
Jyushimatsu getting an “apprentice” with a little kid was also pretty funny~
The Karamatsu taxi skit, the spooky inn, & all the characters being stuck on an island were also good skits!
Ep. 18 (Iyami, Alone in the Wind) was also a crowd favorite, since it brought the feels for a change :’)
The finale 2-parter pulled a bait-and-switch yet again!
Part 1 was actually pretty serious, but the actual finale just has them trying to break out of hell xD
OH YEAH, I still really like the live-action stuff they do during the ending sequences
the first half’s ED was my favorite (the stop-motion of the brothers riding in the car)
I don’t have much to say about comedies generally, but Osomatsu-san is still my favorite in recent years ^^
Even though this season didn’t hit as hard as S1, it still provided some fun laughs~
Pop Team Epic - 7.5 / 10 (C+)
What can I really say about this show? It kind of defies description ^^;
Ok, yeah, it’s a sketch comedy, but it’s a really… crazy and random sketch comedy
The jokes are hit and miss (and in my experience was a bit more… miss than hit)
I never really laughed out loud at this show either
but then again, the humor here is more “being confused at what’s going on, but going along with it anyway”
There’s also a lot of modern anime references, so you might not get those jokes if you don’t follow most recent anime
Each episode has a long skit in it, plus a bunch of bite-size skits
I personally preferred the short skits over the long ones
There were a couple song parodies which I enjoyed (including the Earth Wind & Fire parody)
Also, this series definitely benefits from having an English simuldub! Some skits I found funnier in English!
OH YEAH, the voice actors (in both languages) change every episode, with female and male VAs in each episode
that enhanced the enjoyability of the sketches too, since I liked hearing favorite VAs do silly dialogue and performances!
I wouldn’t say this ranks among my favorite anime comedies, but it’s definitely unlike any other I’ve seen! ^^;
Your mileage will *definitely* vary with this one, so give it a try and see if it’s for you!
The Ancient Magus’ Bride (Mahoutsukai no Yome) - 8.5 - 9 / 10 (A-)
This was a very enjoyable fantasy drama show! Some people feel this show was overhyped, but I still thought it was really good!
I really liked the cast overall, especially Chise
She has really good character development throughout the show! She really becomes more strong and confident!
Seeing the fantastical world through her eyes was interesting as well!
Especially since those mystical elements were also responsible for her terrible childhood…
Elias was also an interesting guy… he and Chise have an interesting relationship together
Their relationship definitely has aspects that are unhealthy, but they do grow closer to each other by the end
If people can’t get past the whole premise of “him buying Chise to be his bride” though, I totally understand ^^;
They help each other learn too, which I liked to see
The supporting cast was also enjoyable! Not much to say about them individually though
The dragon keeper was nice and we got to learn about Elias’ origins through him
The dragons in general were great! Especially the old one that turned into a tree :’)
He gives Chise some good sage advice, even after death :’)
Angelica, Silky, and Stella (among others, like the other anti-hero duo) were good support characters too~
I liked Stella’s role of “normal girl who learns of the supernatural’s existence”
Cartaphilus was an… okay villain, I guess (though his methods were quite creepy indeed, which added some intrigue)
Some character designs are a bit questionable though… like who approved the vampire’s design? ^^;
Another large appeal of this was the world building of the fantastical elements!
I liked seeing all the different types of locales & supernatural creatures, both good and bad
As a low-fantasy show, this show does a Dang Good Job with the fantasy!
Chise learning more about herself and gaining confidence through these experiences were a highlight as well
I enjoyed each story arc as well, even though most of them were more explorative and introspective
This show can be dang beautiful sometimes, through both its art/animation and its stories (Thanks, Studio WIT!)
Some were better than others, but they all deliver either a heartwarming (or a dark) story
Some favorites of mine were the dragon-based ones, and the vampire loving the old man
The finale was good too! It’s unknown whether this conclusion is anime-original or not, but it was definitely a good S1 ending~
If you love low-fantasy shows, this is definitely one to check out!
Violet Evergarden - 8.5 - 9.0 / 10 (A-)
Best *new* anime (that I watched) of this past season, hands down~
Though to be fair, I still need to watch A Place Farther than the Universe… and Yuru Camp… and After the Rain…
Going into this season, this show was hyped and back and somehow… a lot of people were *disappointed* with this show?
I think it had to do with expecting a different show than what we got; as for me, I knew it’d be an episodic drama the whole time :P
But yes, this show has a (mostly) episodic plot with an overarching character arc. If that’s too slow for you, then you probably won’t like this show.
In any case, back to the positives! The first one being how good this show looks visually… as expected from KyoAni~
there’s so much detail in the backgrounds and the character elements (especially the lighting on objects like Violet’s metal hands)
this aspect is one thing *everyone* agrees on regardless, so… yeah, this show’s really pretty!
The main star (and focus) of this show was Violet herself… you can really see how she changes for the better from beginning to end
You get to see how “robot-like” she was at the start of the show, but she slowly learns about dealing with emotions of others… and herself
This character arc is definitely the “main” plot of the show, along with her coming to terms with Gilbert’s death and her war killings
The episodic plots were good in their own right, too!
Ranging from Violet’s start as a Memoir Doll to the different clients she works with, they all teach her something along the way
These sometimes focus on the side characters working at the Doll Agency too, so we get to learn more about them as well
The one that comes to mind first is Iris’ episode, where she (messily) reconnects with a former lover
Not all of them get a full episode in the spotlight, but they do get some focus scenes from time to time
Violet’s clientele episodes were the most memorable out of this lot IMO
ESPECIALLY EPISODE 10… that was the BIGGEST feels trip
I knew exactly how the episode was going to end, but I still teared up at that ending!
The finale was action packed, but also was a beautiful way to show how far Violet has come
I know some people’s issue with this show is that “it doesn’t know what show it wants to be” re: the action stuff, but I was fine with it personally
in any case, it was a pretty good book-end for Violet’s development, since she finally understands (a least a little) what “I love you” means :’)
I understand certain people’s gripes with this show, but this really is a great little drama show that *will* deliver the feels~
P.S. I also watched Fate/Extra: Last Encore this season. It hasn’t technically ended yet, so I can’t give final impressions on it right now. However, my current score for it is a 7.5/10 (C+).

New Discoveries.
TV Star Trek Discovery premiered on Netflix in the UK this morning and is fine, really, really fine. Like most revivals post Doctor Who 2005, it takes the elements of the original mythology and spins them around a different televisual language, in this case a single protagonist, multi-part story. Having spent the best part of a year watching my way through a year's worth of a Trek which even in the sequel and prequel series and films followed roughly the same formula established in the 1960s, it's refreshing to see the franchise attempt something different, partly for its own survival. Imagine if the show had returned in the same old mode, reiterating the usual three or four storylines, offering yet another version of The Naked Time or Data's Day. But the real pleasure for me is in not having to wait to see it.  This is the first Star Trek series which I've been able to watch on "broadcast" almost as soon as it's been made available in the US and participate in the discussion, enjoy the reviews and as is the case in the 2010s, gorge on the YouTube videos listing easter eggs in exacting detail.  In the olden days actually seeing Star Trek was a frustrating process especially if you were in a non-satellite family tied to video releases and terrestrial broadcasts.  Having the entire series (including animated!) available at the touch of button Netflix is the kind of magic which busts Clarke's third law to smithereens. Here's how I've watched Star Trek previously. The Original Series  -- the 1980s BBC Two broadcasts at 6(ish) with the teaser editing in after the titles - the one with the BBC Micro asterisk field beforehand -- The Cage was a rental of the sell-thru version from Video City in Garston in the late 80s -- episodes recorded from Sky by my Auntie -- borrowed from a librarian friend (who also loaned by tons of the books) -- the 90s "remastered" BBC Two version running at the wrong frame rate Star Trek: Animated -- Afternoon broadcasts from Sky One recorded while I was at school.  When we first moved into this tower block, Sky One and Sky News were being delivered via a BSB squarial on the roof. The Next Generation -- Random episodes from season one on rental VHS from Video City --  BBC Two broadcasts, every Wednesday at 6pm.  Unless there was sport in which case it was pre-empted.  Sometimes we'd only see one episode in about two months -- Sky bought first run the rights from s4 onwards which meant waiting for the VHS releases which were, I think, just two episodes a month for £12.99 which wasn't easy on pocket money.  Plenty bought as presents instead.  I received Devil's Due/Clues from friends as an 18th birthday present. -- s5 and parts of s6 during ten hour binging sessions at university in halls because one of my housemates was able to get bootleg recordings of the US TV broadcasts sent to him.  Even then we didn't see all of them and not in the correct order.  That's definitely the first time I saw The Game. -- s7 mix of bought tapes and episodes recorded from Sky by my Auntie.  All Good Things was another birthday present. Deep Space Nine -- Watched the first episode Emissary at a friend's house on what looked like a fifth generation recording of the US TV broadcast in which you could only really make out who everyone was by their outline, the whole thing resembling an impressionist painting.  Which I then had my own copy of and you can imagine what that visual smear looked like. -- random s1 episodes recorded from Sky by my Auntie -- Others rented from the Blockbuster video on Allerton Road.  Special rental tapes with four episodes on them. -- By now I was unemployed and signing on and couldn't afford to buy the episodes.  Sometimes I'd visit the Virgin Megastore in town and stand and watch them on the preview tv screens clustered in the middle of the first floor. -- The BBC Two broadcasts -- But most of it was renting the sell-through releases from Roughley & Gerrard newsagent on Aigburth Road. Voyager -- The Caretaker during Star Trek night on BBC Two, 10:50 in the evening on 26 August 1996. -- BBC Two broadcasts until they lost interest and Sky became the exclusive broadcaster -- First five seasons rented from Roughley & Gerrard until I lost interest -- which meant the first time I saw most of season six and all of seven was earlier this year on Netflix Enterprise -- Box sets rented through Lovefilm, although this blog post indicates this was after the show had been cancelled. ---- Of course, all of this happened pre-internet and hose-pipe rather than bucket social media so the concept of spoilers wasn't really an issue with most of us reliant on Starburst or latterly SFX magazine for news and reviews of episodes.  Most people I knew didn't have Sky and those who did weren't fans so when the BBC broadcasts were the main source we were all watching it together any so it felt like a new series even if the episodes were over a year old.  Now I can't imagine how I'd cope having to wait for a home release of Discovery.
