Re: ORV S2: A Happy Refrain

Another very good episode. Three stars. I was absolutely moved by the ending and the ep was packed with good scenes. My only worry was that it's premise was so obviously unoriginal, but they went some original places with it, as this show regularly does. I don't know why this is " 90's" version of a starship, but it's definitely a great McFarlane ode to TNG which for all its unoriginality, actually is pretty original. I'm glad the relationship will continue, unlike with In Theory. Good stuff, and genuinely sweet.

Re: ORV S2: Nothing Left on Earth Excepting Fishes

3 1/2 stars. I actually thought it WAS a bunch of boring routine tropes 10 minutes in but then it really went some places. There was good dialouge, more bigger-scope settings off ship, and I really liked the message and the fishes line. The b plot was boring and out of place but at least the show ties in the bplots with the main story pretty well, still, b plots are not necessary. I liked some of krill Tyler's religious dialogue about morality mirroring religious talking points in the real world, though unfortunately Seth didn't give much of substance back despite being a vocal atheist himself. I would note regarding some comments above: I found Tyler's story in Discovery riveting and fascinating and I think this was indeed a very friendly jab, and also calling Treks secular humanism and cosmopolitan universalism "hippie" is rather derogatory, offensive, and inaccurate. It would be more accurate to call it scientific Enlightenment humanism or just Enlightenment values-you know those values that have done everything to better the world far beyond what it's ever been, the values enshrined in the UN Declaration of Human Rights, and our true salvation for the future as a global community of an interconnected, interdependent social species. I'm glad this shows on the air and Mac Farlane is mad talented.
