Re: ORV S2: All the World Is Birthday Cake

I think you guys are getting this all wrong. This ain't about astrology. They use astrology.. but it is really about placing judgement without knowing people.

Re: ORV S2: All the World Is Birthday Cake

i really like the episode. It falls short of "Majority Rule" despite having a similar feel (and the notion -- which is incredible - that the crew have to solve a problem not with guns but through the planet's own "rules") but the simple fact is that astrology is not nearly as relevant top day as social media is.. which made Majority Rule more relevant. Also, the scene where Kelly and Bortus are about to be executed reminded me a bit much of Enterprise Season 2 "The Communicator". But overall this feels like 90s Trek.. and I love it

Re: DSC S2: New Eden

I guess what I HATE about this episode ar ehte things I HATE about Discovery, which is why this is a decent Discovery episode but it's terrible Trek. The writers room just HATES Trek. "Guys, let's make the Discovery ship even more AWESOME than the Enterprise ever was. Ok so.. let's make a crisis that is WAY TOO FAR AWAY that the ship could never reach it by the end of the epsiode, but we will make it so it HAS to get to that destination anyway, so we can USE the SPORE DRIVE. and ONLY the DISCOVERY can use this. So make sure that number is so big, like every episode it needs to go up to 50,000 light years from where it was. Forget the traditional Trek means of storytelling we have to make DISCOVERY awesome. Oh and if Discovery needs to get into an area that is DANGEROUS, it can use the SPORE DRIVE again, because the SPORE DRIVE IS AWESOME, and is not like anything in the other Treks." It's almost as if the Spore DRive was invented so CBS could make sure that Discovery was dissimilar enough from the rest of Trek for the sake of copyright issues with what aspects Paramount owns

Re: ORV S2: Nothing Left on Earth Excepting Fishes

I just enjoy the Orville. I mean really enjoy it. How it is filmed and written is the ebst kind of nostalgia for the 90s. How the bring back ideas from that time period and execute them slightly better. I just like it, a lot. As a 40+ year old, no show is better for enjoying right now. Disco is too busy, with too many gross canon violations, and no real identity of its own or consistency in the script writing. (We literally see Pike giving command to Saur in the middle of the mission and then, in the next scene, he is in a Disco uniform and talking about sticking around). Orville might not be new, yet it feels fresh
