Re: Discovery

My flatmate and I finished the second season of Star Trek: Discovery a few weeks ago, so I thought I’d post an update to my previous post, the somewhat tongue-in-cheek “Things I Hate About Discovery. TLDR: As I said last time, if Season 1 was Battlestar Galactica in Star Trek livery, Season 2 is Doctor Who with a bit of Star Wars mixed in. And I still don’t like it.

Things I Hate About Discovery

A few people expressed surprise that I disliked the first season of Star Trek: Discovery—or, as I’d been calling it, Battlestar Discovery. So in light of the first episode of season 2 (which, by the way, is more of a Doctor Who plot with Star Wars execution), here’s a rant some thoughts on why I didn’t like the first one.

Incredibles 2

Exactly what it claims to be. Exactly what I expected and enjoyed from an Incredibles sequel. If you liked the original Incredibles (or Big Hero 6), it’s worth seeing.
