DAYUM!! StarTrek Discovery.

Well, where do I start. Star Trek Discovery was much like many of the past Star-Trek series except that this existed in a post Battle-Star Galactic 2004 Era where a scifi show had to come hard or go home. The show had a great pilot with alot of heart and energy. Due to the lead Micheal’s recklessness I was slowly growing to dislike her placing others in danger but slowly grew to admire her character as the series progressed. The cast was well flushed out and the enemy who I will allow you witness was an interesting take and design

There are many Star-Trek fans that may dislike the series, sadly I am not die-hard fan just a fan of anything scifi and has some interesting science or reasoning. To reiterate the characters for the most part are quite interesting. although there were several things that left me wondering about the ship and what was possible and sometimes did not make sense. I suppose, when trying to enjoy a show and see where the writers are trying to take you the audience, just sit back and enjoy. Please don’t waste my time is all I ask.

I won’t spoil the series if you have not seen it as yet. So get a CBS all access and check the series out. There will be a moment where you ….

Prior to Orville this was the show I binged

Dayum!!! The Orville.. Well Damn

So I finally had time to sit down and watch the series The Orville. The show was well executed and beyond my expectation, I expected a turd of a show and was given more than I was prepared to digest. As I sat watching the first several episodes, I wondered what was my reasoning for avoiding this series for so long. The mixture of the silly jokes and science worked. While the show is a homage and shares some similarities to Star-Trek, the show feels more natural and is the best homage to that series. Orville takes the similarities of the show it emulated, flips the script, then adds in the humor in the right places and leaves you wondering on certain issues that they pursue.

One can forget that this show is pitched as a comedy, then come to find the show to be intelligent and fun and at times is believed to be more of a scifi show with a dash of comedic moments rather than the other way around. I also felt that they handle grim issues such as life and death quite well and in a generally serious manner. I almost forget that the show was created by Seth Macfarlane the creator of Family Guy and American Dad.

To conclude the show was not what I expected, I loved the science, the humor and the humanity that the show embodied. They did a great job and here is to binging the show when it airs season two.
