    Presumably the Tardis shows up on Thra. The Doctor steps out. Adventure ensues.

    (1) The urSkeks apparently tried to use their world's Crystal for some unknown ends that the others of their people deemed folly, for which they were branded heretics, and exiled until they mastered their darker selves. (This comes from the Dark Crystal Wiki, which references the World of the Dark Crystal and Creation Myths Vol. 1 for this info.) The urSkeks had no desire to talk about it, because when they arrived on the planet, they pretended to be pilgrims and helpers to Thra. (2) SkekGra the Conqueror was rebranded "the Heretic" because following a vision from Thra they sought for the Skeksis to change their ways so that the skeksis could work on reunifying with their urRu halves. The skeksis did not like this turn-of-conscience and ousted him. (3) SkekUng is somewhere else in Thra. He is mentioned by name from several of the skeksis later in the season who are talking about the possibility of calling back to the castle SkekNa (the Slavemaster) and SkekUng, who is described as a strong warrior, and maybe another who I can't recall offhand. (It was not SkekShod the Treasurer, who remains unmentioned. I think it was either SkekLi or SkekSa.) Since SkekUng could not possibly become either the General before the death of SkekVar or the Garthim-Master before the creation of the garthim, which transpired at the end of season 1, this paves way for SkekUng to take up this dual position of General and Garthim-Master.

    In regards to polling numbers, I like to remind myself that Nixon had an approval rating of around 55-60 percent around the time that Watergate began to really break - and was prior to that one of the most popular presidents, who had won in a landslide reelection victory - and that over time it plummeted to around 24 percent. I think that Democrats need to keep on point, keep hammering, use the impeachment process to show how everything that Trump touches is corrupt, and also to show to his base how weak, pathetic, and stupid Trump actually is.

    @Ormond Isn't this the new narrative that conservatives and the alt-right are pushing? Conservatives feel that they are losing the culture war, that their white evangelical Christian values are being persecuted by secularism, and that they are increasingly becoming the marginalized victims of a global, multicultural society?
  11. Obviously, I have no interest in defending their bullshit claims.

    It was the late'70s and early '80s. I suspect that Jim Henson was influenced by a lot of New Age stuff for his film, as well as Euro-Americanized Taoism. Dualism seems to work. Two halves of a whole, separated in imbalance, resulting in the imbalance of all things around them.
  13. I read one Vanity Fair article - "It's Management Bedlam: Madness at Fox News as Trump Faces Impeachment" - which talks about how this recent news is causing Fox to prepare for a possible post-Trump future. If Fox News is willing to shift, not wanting to hitch their wagon to a loser, then maybe that will help sway some of their base. This will largely depend on the direction of Lachlan Murdoch.
  14. Who knows, maybe he will get a plea deal or a pass for this for continued Congressional compliance.
  15. I'm fairly certain that the moniker #MoscowMitch is not going away anytime soon. It's the sort of catchy branding that any opposition would love to be handed to them. So that will continue a lot of the pressure that he is receiving.
