Star Trek Short Treks: The Trouble with Edward

"Pretty darn cute."
"Yeah. But if you take all the fur off, underneath, it's all meat. Like a scallop. Blood red."

By nature I love brevity: A solid meh. This episode is funny in many places, but not laugh-out-loud funny, and it thinks it's much funnier than it actually is at many junctures. I hate to judge it by its humor, but that's pretty much all there is to judge it by.

The Good Place: Chillaxing

“Get your shirt together, cause we’ve got a lot of work to do.”

“Chillaxing” sees Eleanor all too willingly torture her ex-boyfriend. Also, Michael invents a new word.

Supergirl: Stranger Beside Me

Lena Luthor: Non nocere.

Lena’s planning something, but most of the episode is spent fighting J’onn’s brother.

Doom Patrol: Pilot

Mr. Nobody: "Critics. What do they know? They’re gonna hate this show."

Doom Patrol was the show that finally broke my resolve and made me sign up for the DC Universe streaming service.

It was worth it.

Mr. Robot: 401 Unauthorized

“Goodbye, friend.”

Endings can be sad, but I’d be lying if I claimed to not be intrigued to see where this crazy story is going to go.

Star Trek The Next Generation: All Good Things...

... must come to an end.

It's been awhile since I saw this episode and I'd forgotten how good it was.

Supernatural: Back and to the Future

"So you and me versus every soul in Hell? I like those odds."

Maybe it's final season malaise, but I wasn't sure how I felt about this one.

Farscape: Bad Timing

"You and your timing."

In the immortal words of Darth Vader, "Noooooooooo!!!!"

Supergirl: Event Horizon

Supergirl: “Pants!”

Lena knows. Lena’s pissed. It’s a bad idea to piss off a Luthor.

Batwoman: Pilot

Kate: “Bruce Wayne is Batman?”
Luke: “Yeah, I’m dead.”

CW pilots are a bit notorious for being kinda crappy. They usually have to backtrack from their introduction to give us their origin. There has to be a lot of characters, plot and world building and the tone of the series established in forty minutes of screen time. That isn’t a recipe for quality.


"I used to think that my life was a tragedy, but now I realize it's a comedy."

I can probably count on one hand the number of films that are so hard to watch that you cannot fathom a reason to watch them again. Except they are so good that eventually you need to remember why, so you put yourself through the experience again. This is one of those films.

Star Trek Short Treks: Q&A


By nature I love brevity: A fun little piece with some good, solid character bits. Just makes me want to see a series with Mount, Peck, and Romijn more.
