Another A-Lister appearance as well, and not just a cameo like Liam Neeson got last week. Guess Seth is using his influence to get some big names in.

Really fun episode.
Loved the pranks. The main story was well done. I liked Charline Theron's character, and the premise she represented.

loving this show so far, the last to eps were really good. i am watching this show instead of stark trek discovery, phuck star trek discovery and jj abrams, this show does star trek way better. this feels like TNG to me

and phuck the critics as well, the fans love this show because it's really good

Yeah, I notice critic ratings for this show is in the toilet, but fan/audience approval has been much more favourable, at least in general.

It's why I am losing more and more faith in critic's reviews nowadays. I feel like a lot of them have jumped on the social justice warrior bandwagon, so any shows that tick all the right diversity boxes get lauded as something amazing, even when they aren't that great. And then solid shows who don't necessarily go full SJW get much poorer reviews.

Great example is Iron Fist and Luke Cage. One got 17% on RT, the other 96%. And while I liked Luke Cage more than Iron Fist, the difference in quality is not even remotely so big as to warrant a 79% difference.

yeah this show has a critics rating of 20% and 90% fan/audience on RT

and STD gets 87% from critics and 60% from fans/audience

clearly RT and and critics don't know shit all about what is a good show, RT also scored high for "it follows", this was the worst movie i have ever seen

i couldnt get into luke cage, i have no interest in iron fist, punisher looks badass though

If Seth got the time travel bit from The Ray, then props to him and appologies for ragging on him for years.

Anyone who likes Chrstopher Priest's run on Ray Terrill can't be all bad.

It was.

I like how the conflict with the Krill is being painted in black & white.Aside from the rampant one liners this could have been an ep. of the original series.
A Kelly Hu cameo, Michaela McManus as an oddly hot Krill Female, a nod to Matter Eater Lad...good stuff all around.

They look a bit like the Jem'Hadar and they also sort of remind me of Cardassians, more in attitude than physical appearance.

They do seem to be a standing threat/foe, though the capture of the female and the return of the children makes me wonder if that will open a doorway for a possible truce in future episodes.

Plus they surely managed to get an actual copy of the Ankana off the vessel.

Finally got around to watching the first episode of this and was surprised at how much I liked it. Some of it I actually found amusing and it's almost a legitimately believable, fun sci-fi universe. With some more world building I could see it really working.

(When it first aired I tuned in just during the scene when he was bickering with his ex-wife while talking to the Krill guy and I thought it was stupid, but it was just a bad part to jump in at because it worked fine in the context of the episode)

Its good you gave it a chance, despite that.

I really was expecting this to be pretty shitty, as FG has gone so far downhill its almost unwatchable.
I can say its ine of my favorite new shows though.

Starting to think Seth has a bunch up pent of issues about his own party, and some of it is fueling a few plots.

Like "Here's why true democracy is TERRIBLE idea".

Key is "fuel" a storyline. He hasn't soapboxed at all, unless you count the Jersey Shore/trash entertainment rant.. smile
