Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 1

Here's my hot take: people are bashing this episode because there's a lot of indulgent goodbye scenes in it, but compare that to The Orville's "Identity, Part I" which was similarly packed with indulgent goodbye scenes - to a single character who was explicitly demonstrated to be unable to even comprehend the gravity of any of them. Complete with a party scene, heartbroken children, and sappy 20th century music. If we want to talk about cliche melodrama look no further. And yet a lot of people here had no problems and even praised it.

I'm reserving judgement on this episode, like others, as this is basically careful setup for whatever the finale brings. Given all of the press about it completely shaking up the universe and whatnot, I am quite optimistic.

Re: DSC S2: Light and Shadows

IMO, this was a solid episode and probably my personal favorite of the series so far, because it just felt right. It didn't try to be more than it was and it achieved exactly what it set out to do - move us into the next half of the season.

The dialogue was surprisingly snappy and natural; it didn't feel stilted like it commonly does. The Spock-Amanda-Michael interactions were smoothly done. The A plot was pretty riveting and I enjoyed the drama, and the B plot may have been superfluous but there wasn't anything glaringly bad about it. Also I'm a sucker for time wackiness.

Overall, the most well-composed episode of the season so far. 3.5 stars.
