    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    When I say "minor stuff to nitpick" I'm talking about stuff like this where it couldn't be more obvious that it's a dummy

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    This is the best Star Trek we've ever gotten since BEFORE Enterprise. This nails the formula perfectly without being completely dull. I understand they're using a lot of tropes that are used in every franchise, but I loved every second of this show. There are probably a few nitpicks I could...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    It's more of me just pointing out how many people lack the utter self awareness of their hypocrisy. If your default reaction to a black actor being cast is "Why does it have to be a black person?" then there are probably some racist undertones in there and it's fine if people call it out when...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    Yeah the Robert April stuff just stokes the usual racist idiots commenting about things. You know, the ones who, with no point of reference just start saying shit like "I love that he's black so we can enjoy all the white man tears" even though nobody ever said a bad thing about it because no...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    More "reboot" universes just clouds the issue further and makes it less special. I understand the timeline has been strained due to it being 60 or however many years ago - but that can at least be marginally explained by time travel and things we saw as viewers alter history a bit for a show...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    A lot of the earliest stuff people had a problem with on discovery was the the blatant disregard for pre established canon. And I'm not talking about casting choices or character arcs. I'm talking about the deliberate and almost malicious intent to disregard every aspect of the in universe...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    The reason why it's been good so far is because the stories are cohesive and the cast has chemistry. The writing is good. The words they say matter. They aren't just speaking "at" each other with platitudes, they talk TO each other. And Uhura.. this was a great focus episode. I know this is a...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    I will absolutely diminish the shows, or at least the enjoyment of the shows, because of the shitty vocal online fanbase of those shows. Where if you levy any critique whatsoever about how terrible the writing, the camerawork, the acting and the overall themes of stories that make zero *******...

    Star Trek: Picard

    Well that certainly explains the whole "what the **** does anything have to do with anything?" plots between the first, sixth and final episodes of both seasons of Picard

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    It's every bit a show that asks "What if Star Trek could have been made in 2022?" I know we've had similar Star Trek themed shows - but this feels like the exact kind of show we got in the 60s but our technology has caught up to the ideas. I think overall it's a solid 2 for 2 in terms of good...

    Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    Man what a great episode. I know it was a.. long road.. to get to a Star Trek series that feels like Star Trek, but I'm pretty stoked about it. They took a lot of criticism to heart when it came to updating to 21st Century production values while respecting the setting look and feel of that era...

    Star Trek: Picard

    It's interesting because Q could have done something that the android body could have easily done - make him a younger healthy version of himself that could have been recast and the character continue.

    Timey Wimey Business- a thread for Doctor Who

    It's a shame Jodie never got a fair chance to have even remotely well written stories for her. Chibnall needed to go from the very start and now that he's gone she didn't have to be part of the package. But it is what it is. Hopefully RTD can retcon/undo that Timeless Child garbage because if...

    Star Trek: Picard

    Of course, if that were true (retcon notwithstanding) Lal should have looked like Kore. But of course Data gave her a choice, which was a more genuine take. The thing about using Kore is a base is that it's not like Soong made a conscious choice to make her look like that - it's just what the...

    Star Trek: Picard

    There are a few "bad writing" quirks that pop up each episode. But I have to say I honestly like this season and there's a lot of cool stuff. I just wish they'd get their pacing together.

    Star Trek: Picard

    Well Raffi and Seven were pretty fun with the "buddy cop" dynamic. But now everything has to be sexualized and people can't just be friends if they're the same gender anymore.

    Star Trek: Picard

    I guess it's par for the course for this show. I remember in the first season they ****ed around for 6 or 7 episodes and then crammed everything they could into the last couple. That was one of the many problems with it. This season over all is much better, much more interesting, and much more...
