I’m going to blame a Charlie Brooker-style technology glitch on my review of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which I referred to in the body of the text as “Dark Mirror” for, I don’t know, six or seven times. Too many times to laugh it off as a typo, at any rate. You won’t see my gaff […]Read more "Black Mirror: Season 5 — a review"
I was so much younger back in December 2017, when I wrote my review for the first season of Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville. Back then, I spent a lot of time comparing it to the latest entry in the official Trek universe, Star Trek: Discovery. I can see clearly now that this approach was misguided.

I’m even happier that Amazon picked it up for a fourth season, coming some time in 2019, because it is that good. Watching this series motivated me to begin reading the James S. A.

Having recently completed my tour through all of the Next-Gen Era Star Trek episodes, I’ve decided to dedicate a 10-List to those I consider to be essential viewing to understand the essence of each series. Some clarification may be needed here. By “Next-Gen Era,” I am referring to the following Star Trek series: The Next […]Read more "10-List: The “Essential” Next-Gen Era Star Trek Episodes"
It took a full seven seasons to get there, but Voyager finally won a round against TNG and DS9. This was the best seventh season of Trek . . . so far. Voyager finally took the gold. Neither TNG nor DS9 turned in a particularly strong season. This much is true. But, even if both […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: Voyager: Season 7 — a review"
