Welcome to the 24 Hours of G & T 2016: Hours 15 – 17 The O Sports Show & Larry Nemecek
So these are the hours when everyone gets kind of tired. However, our friends at the O Sports Show came over and got us going again. We discussed baseball and the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians in particular. And we also covered hockey and general sporting news.
And then Larry Nemecek returned and we discussed the future of television. What will on demand services, live streaming, live tweeting, and binge watching do to Star Trek? Because the upcoming show, Star Trek Discovery, will exist in conjunction with these many consumer options (not to mention the panoply of delivery systems), will that enhance viewer enjoyment, or make the show tank? Furthermore, viewers don’t just accept canon art anymore. While fanfiction is a somewhat older phenomenon, viewers remix shows all the time. So what will that mean for Star Trek and its future? We urge you to listen to this fascinating discussion.
