Re: DSC S2: Brother

@Booming @Yanks

I’m not sure Sonequa Martin Green IS a better actress than Terry Farrell. She certainly makes more faces. But I think Terry played her part perfect to the point I couldn’t imagine anyone else in that role. SMG? I don’t think I can say the same

Re: DSC S2: The Red Angel

@ Anthony

I have to disagree. Firstly he knowingly took a job that could come with criticism and he gets paid very very well so i won’t be shedding any tears. But more important, if he wants to take a show who’s legacy has nothing to do with superheroes and current trends and make it into that, well, there’s going to be backlash. NO ONE asked for that or wanted it. Successful art does not look at what’s popular and worry about current trends.

Re: VOY S2: Elogium

This wasn’t a bad episode. Certainly more deserving than 1.5 stars. Had some touching moments

Re: VOY S2: Initiations

I have to disagree with those that say the Kazon were a fill in for Klingons. There are similarities but there are also a lot of differences. The Klingons were more exploratory and pirate like while the kazon seem to stick to themselves and are more cerebral. I think they seem to be a combination of Klingons and romulans.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

I agree with your take on Solo. It’s big dumb fun. Turn your brain off and shove popcorn down your head. But do I think of this as I do the original three Star Wars films? Somehow you know it’s in that same universe but then again.... it’s kind of not. It’s Han and Chewie go to Disney. I think The Force Awakens is as close as we will get to Disney making anything that feels truly like Star Wars and that movie itself is far from perfect.

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

@ Booming

But that is a bit of PC thought policing regardless. Can Jews not be part of a facist regime? Now if anyone says someone is a racist they are being anti Semitic? I very much doubt anyone who has been a part of this thread talking about facism even made a connection to Kurtzmann and his being Jewish. It’s walking on eggshells to a sad and pathetic degree. I refuse to overthink every single thing I say. If what I say comes from an honest good hearted place and someone gets offended well all I can do is tell you that wasn’t my intention and keep it moving

@ Booming

I think you misunderstood or misread. The guy I was replying to compared them to fascist regime and I said I DID NOT think it was a racist regime but instead Hollywood’s cult like programming of constant praise and no one being allowed to criticize everything

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

@middhipmannorris

Great comment. I agree with everything except when you said it’s run like a facist regime. What I think is happening is this strange thing in Hollywood where everyone smiles and tells everyone else how perfect they are. They fake cry after any scene that’s supposed to have any emotion. They pay each other on the back nonstop. There are no sane people who can say things arnt perfect. These people interrupt fantasyland. An example would be that recent all female oceans eleven. They remade a movie that has way too many sequels in the first place and put an all female cast in a heist movie which obviously is more of a male genre. Instead of maybe realizing the movie wasn’t a great idea from the jump, mindy kaling blames the poor box office performance on “white males”. You see, the whole time they were in a insulated bubble where they all smiled and said how perfect everyone was. And when the movie actually came down to earth and everyday people could watch, no one was interested. Discovery isn’t that extreme of an example but I think it’s similar enough.

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

@ booming @ Alan roi

That’s the problem with text as well as not having to see someone in front of you when you speak. I didn’t notice my comment said ‘on a GUY level you can’t tell me your feeling was this episode was great’ when I actually typed ‘on a GUT level you can’t tell me your feeling was this episode was great’. Along with autocorrect making some unnecessary punctuation errors, Alan Roi’s reply to me made more sense after I saw what I appeared to originally write. But I didn’t know these errors existed when I first read alan’s reply and I thought he was just telling me I was dumb out of nowhere. Even though that was still an aggressive and rude to thing to say after I told him I hope he didn’t feel I was piling on and tried to be nice. But regardless, Alan I should not have told you to stop writing. It’s something you enjoy and I have no place to be telling you not to do it. Here’s some fan fiction of my own: Cody B, Booming and Alan Roi sit down after a quarrel. They give each other a hug and decide that even though they don’t agree on Discovery, they are all glad it exists. The Red Angel comes and takes the three of them to the future where they watch every future episode. The BFFs live long and prosper.

@ Dragana

If you are referring to my comment to Alan roi read what I said to him before and how he responded. I went out to of my way to say I wasn’t trying to gang up on him and hope he didn’t think that but I thought he might be a little too defensive of discovery and unwilling to concede it’s not perfect. You can read the response he wrote to me

@ Alan Roi

Oh yes genius Alan roi. Everything you write is so above my head I just can’t understand it. That must be why you are a failed imaginary writer and not a real one. The lowly masses just don’t get you. Or maybe it’s because you have the talent of making everyone who reads what you write not like you. On a guy level, guy to guy, give up your fan fiction. Oh you prefer “ghostwriting”. I guess it’s called ghostwriting because the talent and chance of success is dead but you just keep on with spirit

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

What do TOS, TNG and ds9 have in common? Originality and not looking back. People had complaints at first but writers stuck to original characters and premises. Discovery does nothing but look back which most times usually lands on making people confused or angry. The only time it really worked was Pike and Talos. Every other time Discovery has been successful is when it’s been original. Please season three build up your original characters and concentrate on individual episodes more than big arcs. It’s not a lot to ask.

@ Alan Roi

Bro you are trying HARD. I think you might feel hanged up on as far as me personally this is not that. There are things wrong with discovery. Period. You cannot lie and say you watched that finale and we’re excited and on a guy level thinking “this is great”. You are really laying it on thick trying to convince yourself more than us that this episode was good. And I’m not saying it’s flat out bad. If I had to describe it in one word I’d use disappointing or underwhelming

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

@Artymiss

The sad thing is I wouldn’t be surprised if season three started by saying half the things that happened thus far were dreamt up by culper while in the spore drive or something along those lines. Sad to say but it’s that kind of show. They REALLY need to stop worrying about cliffhangers that end up creating too many subplots that end up not being resolved well and concentrate on QUALITY INDIVIDUAL EPISODES

@Axiom

I come here every week. I havnt read a single “misogynistic” or “coded” “hate filled” comment. I’ve seen curse words. I’ve seen arguments. But I havnt seen one single thing where I outright thought “that’s hateful, it needs deleted”. I think you should put on your big boy/girl pants. There are things wrong with Discovery. People are allowed to say things are wrong with Discovery.

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

I usually defend Discovery but this is the first time I have to agree with the people who say it’s a bunch of sparkly fast paced action with no substance. Usually the story is good enough or we get some surprises. This episode was just a turd of a finale put inside a big shiny golden box with sparklers taped on the sides.

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

Not a very good finale. They tried to shine it up and make it sparkle but the story was not good. They were painted into a corner having to wrap up the red angel crap. I hope discovery stops putting so much emphasis on arcs that last a whole season and concentrate more on single episodes. Or at the least if they want a whole season arc atleast make sure it is very strong. Red angel wasn’t. The first 2/3 of season two was very good. It was all the moments where red angel wasn’t the focus even if a lot of it was byproducts of the red angel storyline the episodes could have easily happened outside of any red angel crap. Well anyway I’m a bit didsapointed although this episode was what I expected since I knew things had to be wrapped up. I guess I was just hoping for atleast a nice surprise or something. Well here’s hoping next season tightens up and gets better.

Re: DSC S2: Perpetual Infinity

@ Booming @ S C

I see both your points. SC is saying he prefers escapism and doesn’t want to see crimes and criminals glorified on tv. Booming is saying Pike isn’t a fully written, deep, “alive” human. Although I wouldn’t bring up college courses as justification. A lot of college courses and other things could be brought up to show how that’s not so impressive. I like the wire. I do think it’s undoubtebly a top ten all time best show. For me personally I feel it’s quite a bit overrated as far as people repeating it’s the best ever. I personally rate shows on how realistic and well written the humans and their interactions are. Thats why I’d say mad men is another show I’d pick over the wire. The wire is a little bit wide reaching IMO with the politics and getting into the newspapers and what not. Like if I have to think back on what I thought was most powerful imo from that show I’d say when that little boy starts doing heroin. They did a great job of making that boy realistic and you hope so much for him to succeed and your heart breaks when you see his future isn’t there. But then you have the political stuff. Btw I’d say the same thing about ds9 and I think I have said the same thing about ds9 on here before. Less bajor babble please. More sisko with Jake and quark with nog. Again, all my opinion which means next to nothing so results may vary

Re: DSC S2: Perpetual Infinity

@ S C

I can see where you’re coming from. While I like the wire I don’t subscribe to it being “THE GREATEST SHOW OF ALL TIME”. I think that people read those top ten lists, see other people saying it’s the best show ever, and repeat. Along with the subject matter being popular with young men so that seems to artificially boost it. Just like a crook wearing a wire, young men can safely listen in and see what the drug dealers in the hood are up to. It no doubt has its moments and is ONE OF the best shows. But I don’t see how it’s any better than say Friday Night Lights. I have never liked football and could care less about the sport yet that show had me in tears more than once. I think getting a person who doesn’t care about football to be so invested in the characters that he is brought to tears is more impressive than making easy to write stories of undercover cops in the mix with drug dealers. “Will the informant be found out” will always have suspense. And yeah I know “it’s deeper”, but when it comes to shows I will always prefer well written human elements more than symbolism and politics.

Re: DSC S2: Perpetual Infinity

Filler. That’s all I have to say. Not impressed this week. Season two was really on a roll there for a hot second. It’s not too late though let’s finish this season strong! Giorgiou and her Andrew Dice Clay outfit get written off the show! Tilly stops the “just a silly girl blurting out her thoughts” routine! Michael’s mom looks at the camera and says “sike!” and pulls off her face scooby doo style to reveal that the red angel was khan this whole time! Let’s go season two. You can do it.

Re: VOY S1: Emanations

Those “aliens of the week” weren’t the brightest. Why could they not just accept that the asteroid was a graveyard when told about the bodies? That doesn’t ruin everything. I guess they just had to have their physical bodies in their heaven or no deal. Pretty weak episode. Like someone took mushrooms and got inspired but then just finished up the story 3 weeks later over the weekend instead.

Re: VOY S1: Eye of the Needle

So I started watching voyager and this is the first episode I think is real quality. This far I’d say voyager seems like TNG-lite. My guess is that TNG was ending, ds9 wasn’t setting the ratings world on fire, and a more tng-like show was needed.
