TelevisionStar Trek: The Animated Series - "The Practical Joker" (02x03) - Recommended
Official synopsis: "The Enterprise explores a mysterious cloud in space. After passing through it the ship's computer begins acting in a bizarre fashion. It replicates Kirk's shirts with 'Kirk is a Jerk' on the back, manufacturers devices that leave a black eye ring on Spock, and shoot cream pies out of the food devices. Things take a turn for the worse when McCoy, Sulu, and Uhura are trapped in the holodeck where they are beset by dangerous weather phenomena."
This episode is hilarious. There are a few episodes that are known for being really funny. "Trouble with Tribbles" being the most well-known one. This one stands along side it as being hilarious. When the ship becomes sentient and starts "punking" the crew it's hilarious. From giving Spock raccoon eyes to changing Kirk's shirt to read "Kirk is a Jerk" there are laughs all the way through. Of course the ship doesn't have any hands, so we're not sure how it manages to play the pranks but that's not really important. The jokes go from silly to lethal pretty quickly and the tension is very real.

MoviesTerminator: Genisys (2015) - Not Recommended
"When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…."
While the movie looks great and has amazing action scenes the plot is non-sensical. I'm not opposed to the idea behind a reboot of the franchise is brilliant as always. Arnold Schwarzenegger is as funny and brilliant as always and the aging Terminator T-800 nicknamed "Pops" and his performance is the standout. The other performances are good too while they can't compare to Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor or Michael Biehn as Kyle Reese. Where the movie falls apart is the bizarre lengths they have to go to to explain the altered timeline and events. They have to return to the same tired trope of a Terminator being sent after the last Terminator and the Terminator before that. The idea was strange in T2 and is even more implausible in T5. They introduce some new elements and ideas that help to smooth out some of the plot holes, but not enough. The movie also introduces creepy relationships that emerge from the characters meeting themselves.
*** SPOILERS ***John Connor meets his Dad Reese when he's a kid. John meets his Mom Sarah when she's a teenager. The scene when the grown up John calls Sarah and Reese "Mom and Dad" is beyond bizarre. The scene when Reese meets Connor as a little girl when he's in love with her is unintentionally chilling.
*** SPOILERS ***
If the characters were stronger and the movie added to the franchise it would have been worth it, but it's only one more movie in the long list of failed Terminator sequels.
