Rare LEGO - This is Only a Test 606 - 7/1/21

We're joined by friend of the site Steve Lin this week to catch up and talk about the reception to Disney's Loki show so far (no spoilers!), the announcement of Windows 11, the benefits of 4K vs HDR, and anticipation for the new LEGO BrickLink Designer Program. Plus, our reaction to the latest Picard Season 2 trailer and how much an iconic Next Generation prop sold for at auction!

    So you thought Loki would be a mystery-box show? What made you assume it was one? I'm OK with it not being a mystery-box show, as those usually get too much mystery and not enough satisfying answers. WandaVision was alot of questions that fizzled out without answers by the end - I loved WandaVision, but I've got a bad taste in my mouth from it being a mystery-box show. Why does Owen Wilson have to play comedy roles? I think he's great so far in this role! This isn't a laugh-a-minute show, it's more clever than laugh-out-loud. I think Owen is doing a great job working with the other actors to bring drama when drama is needed and keep it light when that is needed. Your main complaints with the show are that you assumed it was something, and it wasn't that? That seems a little flimsy to me. If it doesn't interest you, that's OK, but don't try to make it the show's fault because you assumed something and that isn't what you got.

    So nice to see a presentation on YT dealing with topics important to the young and not bothering about all the trivial things like global inequality, deprivation, homelessness, lack of access to clean drinking water, climate change, the 31 wars/conflicts curretly underway around the world, etc.

      Well it's Varjo, so it's not really for private use. Those $3-5k things generally have to be bought in packs of 6 with an annual subscription service that costs another grand.

    HDR is usually 10bits or 12bits (vs 8bit) and uses a different colour space (rec 2100 vs rec 2020). I presume the metadata Norm refers to is what they use to "tone map" the 10bit picture down to 8bit for legacy displays, as simply compressing the 10bit back to 8 results in terrible quality.

      Even jumping from 8-bit to 10-bit the colour information is hugely different. 8bit gives you 256 colours per channel of RGB, 10bit gives you 1024 per channel. You can image how many colours there are once you get to 32bit. When uncompressed, the high bit depth video files are enormous. The reason the size of the final delivery files don't vary as much is due to the compression being set at a particular mbps (megabits per second). A 5 minute 8bit video at 20mbps will be the same size as a 5 minute 10bit at 20mbps.. because its the same number of megabits streaming per second. You're just compromising in different areas of the video quality. I don't know exactly how the compression algorithms differ but it's really clever stuff.

    Loki Episode 3 was way better than people gave it credit for and is awesome! Fatigue? I don't get this sudden reluctance to like Loki.

    Data got to interact with all three OG TOS characters, no matter how briefly; Bones, Scotty and Spock, and you can clearly see their influence on him as the series progresses.

    everyone should just quit the streaming services, there are just too many of them and most only have 1 or 2 good shows at any given time running if that

    At 3:30 approx one of the speakers made a point so mention that he was preoccupied with people getting the vaccine as if they are a risk to those who have had the vaccine.. Do these people not realize you still can get and transmit the virus with the vaccine? What does it matter if someone has the vaccine or not from a personal level?

    I’m curious is the viewer drop off for Loki is due to releasing on Wednesday vs Friday. I know when I watched the past few weeks, I had forgotten it had come out until it was the evening. Friday was always Marvel/Star Wars day

    I think you are being way too rough on Loki; am probably enjoying it more than any other Marvel series. I do enjoy the pacing and having no idea where it is going... I find it bizarre that you have talked often about fan entitlement, then say something like, "I don't like because it was not what I thought I wanted."
