Re: DSC S2: Saints of Imperfection

I was knocked out of this episode early, as soon as Emperor Georgiou walked out of that shuttle. I absolutely hate that character (if you can even call her that). The whole thing just felt like a jumbled mess to get Dr.Culber back. I am happy he is back, but it again reminds me of one of the many poor decisions made in season one. If they didn’t stupidly kill him, this dumb episode never would have existed.

And there is still too much damn music playing when characters talk. I actually miss a word or two because the background music is so loud.

Re: DSC S2: Point of Light

I hated this episode. There were too many things that brought me back to aspects of season 1 that I disliked.

1. Just seeing L’Rell again irritated me, because it reminded me of the absurd way she became Chancellor in the first place. It’s no surprise many people want to overthrow her.

2. Having Tyler back just reminded me of the stupidity of him being a sleeper agent in the first place. Him and L’Rell had no plan and accomplished nothing with him being a sleeper agent, aside from killing a good character in Dr.Culber for shock value.

3. The presence of Emperor Georgiou is offensive on so many levels. Any reminder of the mirror universe is just bad, as the mirror universe is just a gimmick that was focused on way too much last season. And I still can’t get over Starfleet making her captain of Discovery last season because “they were out of all other options”. Furthermore, Emperor Georgiou is not an interesting character at all. She is just evil. There is nothing else to her personality.

I think what really bugged me though is all the focus on L’Rell/Tyler/Georgiou took away from the actual Discovery crew. I want to see more of Pike/Saru/Stamets, and a more developed bridge crew. I want them to engage in missions where the crew has to work together. I want crew members to have interesting discussions regarding difficult issues, WITHOUT any music playing in the background.

I might give the episode 0.5 stars for the material related to Tilly. Otherwise, terrible episode.

Re: DSC S2: New Eden

I liked the episode. One scene that stood out was at the end where Burnham goes to speak to Pike in his ready room after the away mission. There actually wasn't any music playing in the background...for about 10 seconds. But it was a miraculous 10 seconds.

Re: DSC S2: Brother

I know some people already brought this up, but I really dislike the annoying background music playing when two characters are talking. It should be the job of the actors to convey emotion in a scene, not the job of the music. I forgot how much this irritated me last season.

Otherwise, I liked the episode.
