Star Trek Discovery – Still dishing out Shocking Twists (TM), but at least no one has eaten Saru this week

Yes, it’s the obligatory Star Trek Discovery review cum angry rambling (previous editions may be found here). Though at this point, we should probably call the show Star Trek: What the Fuck?! or maybe Star Trek Rollercoaster. Cause Discovery is … Continue reading

Star Trek Discovery – Through the Looking Glass and into even more Grimdarkness

Yes, this is the obligatory rambling post about episode 9 of Star Trek Discovery a.k.a. the mid-season finale, though it’s more like the two thirds of a season finale. For those following along at home, previous posts in my mostly … Continue reading

Star Trek Discovery – Of Rubberheads and Rushed Romances

It seems that last week’s episode of Star Trek Discovery (which was actually good) was an outlier, because this week Star Trek Discovery is back on form and it sucks. If you’re interested in reading me detailing all the many … Continue reading

Star Trek – Into Grimdarkness

Since I seem to be doing an episode by episode dissection of Star Trek Discovery anyway (previous posts may be found here), I might just as well do the last two episodes of the first half-season as well. Besides, the … Continue reading
