Are we finally going to see what happened on the USS Enterprise ?
“Oh My !” like would George Takei say… the ending of the last episode of the first season of Star Trek Discovery, was absolutely intense ! I was this close to drop tears : in a split second it was starting to feel really emotional.
If you’ve watched the Star Trek reboot movies, then you know that Kirk’s dad was the commander of the USS Enterprise when something bad happened and they had to send a distress signal that was intercepted by the USS Discovery on their way to Vulcan. I’m not sure what went down, but we all are aware it’s commemorated as a tragic incident… so maybe in season 2 we will get to see that ? Fingers crossed !
To go back to the episode itself, it was a wild ride. It was full of action and there was kind of unexpected moments, so that was cool. I love being surprised with where the storyline is heading.
Captain Georgiou is taking command, but she’s from an alternate universe where “Terrans” are roughless, untrustworthy and violent. They play on fear, and thrive from that. Which makes pretty much everyone uncomfortable because it isn’t The Federation ways. They call up to her help anyway since the situation is critical, they are afraid the Klingons are going to attack and destroy Earth – which is The Federation’s homeworld.
Captain Georgiou makes out a plan that she doesn’t disclose entirely to Burnham, Tilly, and Tyler who are accompanying her on the Klingons homeworld thinking she isn’t seeking out total obliteration of Qo’noS but are quickly deceived when they find out that she was. Then Burnham takes command off her, and decides to save both worlds by coming up with an insane plan involving convinving L’Rell (a Klingon they held captive on the USS Discovery) of their good intentions and somehow she manages to do that, with great timing and self-control.
I’m really shortening things right now, but I promise the development of the series and this particular episode was quite spectacular. All ends well, Burnham gets a pardon for her astounding services, Georgiou escapes for her freedom, L’Rell and Tyler stray away together to work on the unification of the Klingons, the other crew members are all thanked and get medals of honor.
RATING – 8.5/10 Awesome ! damn this had become one of my favorite shows to watch, I am so bummed it’s already done for this year… you should totally binge it on Netflix, the visuals are incredible and it’s so well thought and the costumes, makeup and everything are totally amazing.
Honestly I bought this comic for the cover… I instantly regonized Artgerm’s artwork and I needed to have it ! I’m a huge Supergirl fan though, of the CW TV Series… I haven’t really read much of her in comic book form, but the storyline caught me in and now I guess I’m gonna keep reading the next issues.
I don’t have a lot of background to the story that was presented in this issue, it’s the 16th and from what I’ve gathered the DEO is after Supergirl – totally different from the TV Show where Supergirl & the DEO are like pals and working together. There’s this real creepy “guy” called Bones that’s organizing a massive take down plan, and using people with powers to stop or kill Supergirl. I have no clue what his personal vendatta is with her, but I hate him already.
Supergirl’s alter ego, Kara Danvers, looks wildly different in this comic book series. Not only does she wear the usual glasses, but she has brown hair ! She’s a total brunette, it’s so strange. I’m not sure if it’s a wig or what, but I’m still digging the whole “human” look the pencillers are going for. There’s two villains in this story, first one is Sharon Vance but from what I’ve read so far, she doesn’t seem to be an actual villain, she was conditioned by Bones to act badly but in reality she’s kind of on Supergirl’s side.
Whereas the other villain, Deceilia who’s a crazy maniac killer only wants to cause mayhem and murder as many people as she possibly can… they kind of cut the flow right when Supergirl was about to confront her, so I won’t know what happens until next month. I’m totally curious & gonna be on the lookout for #17.
RATING – 7/10 Nice ! Well here’s my problem with monthly issues, is that I have to wait an entire month until I can read the rest of the story ! It’s suspensful sure, which can be good if you aren’t impatient like I am. I think it’s a fun series to start if you’re into Supergirl, and the cover is honestly freaking amazing.
Season 2 was a great run !
I hate season finales… I mean I love them, but I hate them at the same time if you know what I mean. It’s just that the whole season builds up to the finale, but then when it’s there you realize : oh gosh, this is the end & you gotta wait an entire year to find out what’s next. It’s not cool, I wish my favorite TV Shows would never take breaks. I know it’s not reasonable 🙂
I started The Good Place on Netflix a little bit out of boredom (that’s actually basically how I start anything on there) but it was so good ! I got caught up into it completely, I loved the concept, and the storylines and it’s so much fun ! Made me laugh a ton. Kristen Bell is absolutely glorious, I adore that actress and I think this role of Eleanor Shellstrop fits her really well. Everyone’s pulling off their characters in a great way, and that’s what makes the show even more enjoyable.
This is not much of a review as it is a talk about the season 2 finale. I’m just left with so many questions ! It didn’t really end, it’s an open ending and I dislike those because I’m impatient and I cannot believe that it’s gonna take forever for them to follow up on it. A lot happened this season, but if I fast-forward it I’ll put it this way.
First after Eleanor and her friends figured out they weren’t actually in The Good Place that it was a lure, they tried to escape it without success. Then they got their memories wiped out and they had to relive variants of their time spent there. Lastly, the demon known as Michael decided he didn’t want to be a “bad guy” anymore and helped them escape where they were all heading, which is The Bad Place.
Wasn’t easy, they had to meet a Judge who was a little cuckoo like most of the characters in this show, and they came her-the Judge and Michael the-demon, to an accord as to (I guess) put them back where they died. Like a resurrection ! Just so they could see if their time spent in the fake-Good Place made them into better people, and if they deserved to go to the real-Good Place after they pass. Very exciting stuff, except it ends right there and then… and we don’t get to see where Tahani and Jianyu went.
RATING – 7/10 Nice ! I love the ideas and where it’s heading, but I wish it was a longer episode because there’s so much left out… for season 3.
