TV Review – Star Trek: Discovery – S01E09


Well, here we are, at the fall finale. The last episode until January. How was it?

Well, I no longer want her to eat that phaser, so that’s progress.

This was a decent enough episode. Serviceable. A solid C. But as usual, I’m left with way too many questions!

TV Review – Star Trek: Discovery – S01E08


You know, I just realized that this blog has become a bit limited in scope of late. Perhaps I should resume blogging about politics and the like.

Naw, fuck that. Let’s just keep picking on Discovery. It’s way less depressing.

TV Review – Star Trek: Discovery – S01E07


Yes, we’re back to the insane, stupidly-long titles again. Also, we’re back to me asking some very basic questions that drag down an otherwise ok episode. Lastly, we’re back to Mudd! Let’s get going!

Choose your pain! I choose to continue to watch Discovery, despite the fact that I should, by now, know better.

This episode was an improvement over previous ones. There were some little moments that I liked, and Rainn Wilson is quite good at playing a character we once saw on the original series. There was also a wonderful little moment of continuity that, at last, canonized the character of Robert April.

First question: why would you allow a prisoner to keep that many rings?

TV Review – Star Trek Discovery – S01E04


Ever wonder why I’m not putting titles for these episodes? Because a pretentious title like the ones we’ve seen lately deserves no praise, no accolades, and no recognition.

Oh, well. On with the review. Spoilers ahoy. Etc.

Also, why are transparent monitors a thing? So useless.
