For all it's silliness, Ep 6 was actually quite dark.

A lot of my friends are saying it was solid but a bit underwhelming, and they also felt like something was missing. Haven't seen it yet. I am getting burned out on Hollywood cinema these days and...

I am warming to this, it reminds me of TNG. Okay, it's not got a shred of originality, and it's clearly a loving hommage to all things Trek, but it's kinda nice.

I kinda fear it may suffer in the same way the Xmas special did. I am not confident we'll get any of that depth without a season long arc. I thought S2 was a bit tighter in terms of narrative than...

I must admit I balked at the $300 price tag, but come to think of it, that really is quite reasonable for a short run, fully painted item. Props were never my thing (unless it were a full sized...

I kinda like hearing this kind of comment, because Londo does start out fairly detestable and becomes a tragic hero that redeems himself. Will be interesting to see if that assessment changes by then...

Trust me it does. I cried.

Always forget how slow these things move in Hollywood. I wonder what the status of Midnight Nation is?

The only other finale that possibly tops this is The Leftovers. It has the same emotional impact, I imagine I'd be blubbing every time, just like SiL. It so neatly ties up the series and it's so very...

Disco filled the void whilst there was no real SF of note on television. There aren't many straight up 'ship shows' these days, so i welcome it.

Cool to see them steadily engaging more with the show. I wonder if, by the end they'll be mega fans? By the time you hit the end of S3, I think you should have a good feel for if they love it or not....

Very well said. On the whole I've enjoyed it quite a bit. The mid season finale felt perhaps a bit rushed, but I really dig that the outcome may change the status quo of the series a lot.

Mid-Season finale is a bit all over the shop... not sure I liked it much.

Really?!? I never once thought of reading the show in that way. I guess the Klingons were originally meant to depict communist China and Russia, so it'd be fitting for our times. However, it just...

Personally, I am still enjoying it.

I am not going to get too hung up on what 'is' and 'isn't' Star Trek. A lot of people probably balked at the tone of some of the DS9 stuff, but it remains some...

Ep5. Continues to be solid. Isn't the grim-dark show I feared it would be. Some lighter moments remind me of B5. Thumbs up. Also a nice 'diversity' reveal that was done really tastefully.

I can see it being hard sell for modern audiences, but I think it may have legs as a film. I'm definitely going to see it, but I'm part of the older generation who loved the original film. And I...
