Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2 Episode 4

“An Obol for Charon” Star Trek: Discovery delivers a riff on an old Star Trek plot when a mysterious life form threatens the ship and the crew have to race against time to save themselves. So many episodes of the various Star Trek shows have had this basic setup whether it be an anomaly of…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2 Episode 3

“Point of Light” Star Trek: Discovery checks in with L’Rell and Tyler and Amanda pays a visit to the Discovery to enlist Burnham’s help in resolving the Spock situation. Last season ended with L’Rell seizing power in the Klingon Empire by having her finger on the detonator of a bomb that could wipe out the…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2 Episode 2

Star Trek Discovery continues to explore the mystery of the red bursts and takes the crew to an undiscovered Human colony on the other side of the galaxy. I mentioned last week that the red burst story could act as little more than an enabler for plot, acting as an excuse to take the ship…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2 Episode 1

“Brother” Star Trek: Discovery returns for a second season with the introduction of a mystery that spans the galaxy and the appointment of a new Captain on a temporary basis. The return of this show is something I’ve been eagerly anticipating since the last season ended. Star Trek is my favourite franchise and I found…

Kneel Before Pod – Marvel’s Inhumans

Marvel’s Inhumans has brought an end to its first -and likely- only season so Kneel Before Pod saw fit to give it a send-off in the form of a podcast since we were there at the very beginning. Craig and Chris took on the responsibility of talking about this show. The discussion covers the numerous…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 8

“…And Finally, Black Bolt” Marvel’s Inhumans ends its first -and possibly only- season with significant changes for the Royal Family and the Inhuman population as a whole. So it’s finally done and if reports about ratings and overwhelmingly negative critical reception are to be believed we won’t be seeing any more of these characters; certainly…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 7

“Havoc in the Hidden Land” The Royal Family return to Attilan and loyalties shift in the penultimate episode of Marvel’s Inhumans. Anyone who has been reading my reviews over the course of the season will know that I’ve found this show to be an exercise in frustration. The only two things keeping me watching are…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 6

“The Gentleman’s Name is Gorgon” Marvel’s Inhumans reunites the entire Royal Family as Maximus feels his hold on Attilan start to slip away. There are only two episodes left in the season after this one and we are finally getting to the point where the entire Royal Family are back together. I wish I could…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 5

“Something Inhuman This Way Comes” Marvel’s Inhumans finally brings most of the Royal Family back together as Crystal learns what it means to be Human. The past few episodes concentrating on the characters being on their own has been somewhat frustrating. As I’ve repeatedly said they aren’t interesting or sympathetic so waiting for them to…
