In my review of last week’s episode of Star Trek Discovery, I complained that Osyraa’s (Janet Kidder) motivations were unclear. She leads the Emerald Chain, overseeing a mercantile trading system spread throughout the universe. She uses slaves, violence, and other unsavory tactics to keep control of planets under her command.
After searching all season, the crew of the Discovery finally finds the source of the Burn on this week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery, “Su’Kal.” Star Trek: Discovery’s third season is now in its home stretch with only two episodes left, and “Su’Kal” directly sets up events for the finale.
In Wonder Woman 1984, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) faces off against foes both strong and willful—Max Lord (Pedro Pascal), and Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). Set against the backdrop of global political tensions and the oil boom, Wonder Woman must once again believe the best in humanity to save the world.
Star Trek: Discovery has never shied away from changing up its premise or central cast. Last week’s episode of Discovery opened the “Terra Firma” two-parter where we learned Emperor Georgiou’s (Michelle Yeoh) days were numbered. She was given the chance to revisit her origins in the Mirror Universe and reflect on what she would’ve done…
On this season of Star Trek: Discovery, the ship has been visiting the home worlds of each of the crew members and seeing what they’re up to in the 31st century. This week though, we’re revisiting not only a familiar planet, but a familiar universe, and as such it’s a two-part arc. We also escape…
Yesterday Disney dropped an entire mountain of new programming, which honestly fills me with a lot of mixed and uncomfortable emotions. Like,surely one of the ten Star Wars shows announced could have been axed to pay to furlough some of the 11,000+ park employees that have been laid off?
We’re back with this week’s entertainment news, and although there doesn’t seem to be a ton of it relative to other weeks, there are a couple bombshells.
Star Trek: Discovery’s latest episode, “Unification III,” is a sequel to a 1991 Next Generation two-parter and a continuation of a more recent Picard storyline. The episode makes some surprising choices that don’t always land, but it swings hard and hits where it counts.
In Star Trek: Discovery’s newest episode, Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) teams up with Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) to save Book (David Ajala) and search for more information about the cause of the Burn. It’s a fun romp but none of the characters feel challenged, and the viewers don’t learn anything new. “Scavengers” provides many fun character…
Endings are hard.
Will next year be any better than this year? Maybe not. But at least there’s a sliver of hope that it’ll be different than this year. I’ll hold onto that hope for the next forty-three days. In the meantime, here’s a sampler of the last seven days of entertainment news.
Discovery’s “Die Trying” provides all kinds of fun easter eggs and connective tissue for both the Star Trek franchise and Discovery, but unfortunately it fails at telling a cohesive story.
