Re: DSC S3: Su'Kal

Do Discovery writers get paid for this drivel, or are they just there on school work experience? As with every big Discovery reveal over the past 3 seasons, I knew the cause of the Burn would be something anticlimactic but I never imagined it was caused by a tantrum from a man child!

Re: DSC S3: Terra Firma, Part 2

Another ridiculous episode. There has been absolutely no indication that MU Philippa is a redeemed good guy. Now all of a sudden she's back in the MU and trying to be a force for good? She hated the prime universe and saw it as weak and hated the entire crew except for Michael. I just can't buy that she's a changed person to the extent where she would radically transform the Terran Empire. Becoming the Emperor again is all she would have wanted, I don't buy the idea she resented the role if given the opportunity to reclaim the throne in the MU.

At least this is the last we'll see of her on Discovery. An absolutely ludicrous, cartoonish character that added nothing except cringe value. Good riddance!

Re: DSC S3: The Sanctuary

I really hope this illness of Georgiou's really is terminal and she dies soon, preferably next week. Mirror Universe characters have always been fun and interesting yet Georgiou is just absurd. I don't think I've loathed a character as much as this in any Trek series before. She is an absolute joke, I cannot believe people are being paid a lot of money to write such a ridiculous character. It truly is stupefying.

Re: DSC S3: Unification III

@trent - I am literally applauding your breakdown of this episode. A superb summary of this godawful episode!

Re: DSC S3: Unification III

Brandon - I feel the same, no sense of "shipness" at all. Does anyone really imagine themselves wanting to serve on Discovery the way we did with the Enterprise in TNG or Voyager? The crew does not inspire you at all.

Re: DSC S3: Unification III

I think I'm finally done with Discovery. Watching this is becoming a chore, and not an enjoyable one either. This season really has plummeted to new depths of cringe and lameness. Awful.

Re: DSC S3: Scavengers

I just can't seem to get into Discovery. Into the 3rd season and I feel I'm just watching this for the sake of it, not because I enjoy it but because it's a Star Trek series (in name at least). I can only think of a handful of episodes in the 3 seasons that I enjoyed. What it should be called is Star Trek: Burnham.

There are other potentially interesting characters on this show but we'll never know since this series is only interested in Burnham. Her obsession with the Burn is bizarre and is yet another annoying "big reveal coming up" type of thing that we've seen before, where the entire season is building up towards.
Last season was the Red Angel. The season before was the deal with Ash and Voq, I think. Was there another mystery that dragged on throughout season 1 that had a major reveal? I can't even remember.

The weird obsession the writers have with setting up a big mystery at the start to reveal at the end just baffles me. The reveal is ALWAYS going to be a big anti-climax. I guess we all have figured out that the Burn was probably caused by Burnham or her mother, or perhaps another random family member. I don't get why the writers keep repeating this type of storyline, it's just silly and not exciting in the least because by the time we get to the reveal after it dragging on and on, the curiosity is long gone.

Re: DSC S3: People of Earth

I just can't get my head around the Burn. How can dilithium all over the galaxy just stop working? And why did it cause every warp core to explode? Burnham said that "dilithium is the heart of every warp capable ship". Did anybody tell the Romulans that? Or did the Discovery writers forget or just not know about that? Romulans don't use dilithium for their warp cores so they must surely dominate the galaxy? All very strange.
