Well, I was almost on the verge of being within sight of beginning to think about enjoying that episode. Almost.

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Praise Grud! I've been wanting to like STD for so long I've come out in a rash. These latest two episodes have attracted my attention. Not converted just yet but have my fingers crossed.

Well, that's more like it. Reckon that was the first time the show has felt 100% Trek from start to finish. No bad thing. I'll avoid spoilers. Let's just say everything - EVERYTHING - gets pulled together at last and it's pretty delicious.

Last night's also left me a little sad thinking about what we might have had had Fuller been left to truly craft an anthology series. Less complaining, I think, if we'd known this would be - quite literally - a standalone season telling its own story and knowing the next one would be completely different. A real shame and a missed opportunity.

Well that explains a few things! I love this long form plotting and the opportunities it affords for audacious rug pulling. Very good stuff and I love that quite a lot of the main characters are now behaving like they are in Star Trek.

Another excellent episode. Too many deaths!

Jason Isaacs is the perfect casting to the series.

Two episodes to go.  :o

Very exciting stuff. Wasn't entirely happy with some of the technobabble problem solving and massive pieces of propulsion system redesign being completed in minutes but sometimes you just gotta roll with it.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Maybe the twists are making me glaze over and I'm seeing them where they aren't there

I think it's this. I thought they might swap the Stamets but there really wasn't anything to indicate that and plenty to indicate that they hadn't.
