    Why are you only making 3 more of Hyrule Haeresis? I mean, I don’t know if you would gain anything by covering all of them, but you’ve done that so far. What’s your criteria going forward?

    I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, this is pretty much where Star Trek and I parted company too – I watched DS9 some way into the Dominion War, gradually losing interest until I just kind of drifted off and didn’t even notice when I stopped watching. I made myself watch the first couple of episodes of Voyager and caught the odd later one here or there but never got into it, and I’ve never seen any Enterprise at all.

    On the other hand, that’s precisely why I was looking forward to your coverage of this period. Up until now it’s been kind of nostalgic – in many cases I’d only seen the episodes once, and my reaction has varied from a simple “I don’t remember that” or “oh yeah, that was a fun one, wasn’t it?” to delight at a different perspective on a beloved classic/hated pile of trash. But for the future I was looking to you as a guide on the journey. I see your previous post as a fun game, like the Futurama-inspired TOS list; a similar one covering later stories would be something I could actually follow.

    Still, I have been enjoying Permanent Saturday, and I wish you all the best in your future endeavours, whatever they may be!
