Samuel Clemens, that is, not us. We're kicking off The Next Generation's sixth and penultimate season this week, with "Time's Arrow, Pt II," "Realm of Fear," and "Man of the People," and whoops, they're all kind of crap. At least the Barclay episode shows that the crew is getting better at creating a healthy work environment for non-neurotypical coworkers. Way to be allies, Next Gen crew. Oh, and then we talk about The Wire, as Nicky is living a Bruce Springsteen song but wouldn't know it because he listens to crap nu-metal bands in "Hard Cases."
