Discovery Season 3 Finale Review: Safe, But Fitting Finale

With the end of episode twelve, things do not look good for the good guys. Osyraa now controls Discovery. Saru, Dr Culber, and Adira […]

Discovery S3:E11 – So It Begins

Every show plods along during the season. It has its ups and downs, but when it reaches those last few episodes of the season the action ratchets up, the drama and intrigue increase exponentially and the stakes get incredibly higher. Discovery has reached this end point and things just picked up. Answers begin to be […]

Discovery S3:E10 – Goodbye and Hello Again

For the past several weeks I have practically had Last Christmas with Emilia Clarke or auto-play. Its a fantastically funny Christmas Comedy with a nice little twist to it. How does this pertain to Discovery? Emilia’s boss, Santa, who owns the year-round Christmas shop where she works, sasses her, belittles her, degrades her, and refuses […]

Discovery S3:E9 – Of Ghosts and Gods

The latest episode of Discovery focused largely on Emperor Phillipa Georgiou and her condition. It seems existing outside of one’s time and space is fatal, so of course we want to find a cure for our favorite bad attitude Empress. This episode and the next will focus on who Georgiou wants to truly be. She […]

Discovery S3:E8 – The Finer Points

This week on Discovery we watched “The Sanctuary”. For the first time this season I cannot point to one thing and say this was magnificent. The action was good, but not great. Of the performances and character arcs, no one’s story really stood out. I can’t say ‘Oh, Burnham’s story was Magnificent’ or ‘They did […]

Discovery S3:E7 – Fractured (SPOILERS)

Here we are at the roughly half way point of the season for Discovery. Once again showrunners bring the show back to a character driven narrative. While the action centric focus has only surfaced once (episode 6), both ways of story telling have been great, but it’s when Discovery focuses on the characters that it […]

Discovery S3:E6 – Seeds Take Root

For the first time this season Discovery finally shifts gears from a character driven episode to more of an action-based episode. While the character-based episodes have been great, it feels good to get out stretch the legs and flex the phaser finger for awhile. The story line for this episode comes across straight enough. Book […]

Discovery S3:E5 – We Are Discovery!

Here we are. Roughly one-third of the way through the season of Star Trek: Discovery, and so far this entire season has focused on Identity. Who are we? What is our purpose? With Discovery almost 900 years out away from everything they knew, they need to find a way to fit in to the new […]

Discovery S3: E4 – Identities (Spoiler Free)

Having just finished the fourth episode of Discovery‘s third season, I cannot help but feel completely blown away by the first four episodes. The producers seem to be taking the slow burn approach. Many times shows, especially sci-fi/fantasy shows, spend most of their episodes focusing on events and technology and the machinations of the environment, […]
