‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×05 – Choose Your Pain’ Review

17 October 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Star Trek: Discovery is a show that may be connected to a long legacy, but it also has to pave way for its own future. With Choose Your Pain, we see a harsher side of the Federation and the crew of Discovery that at moments had me thinking “Not my Star Trek”.

When Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs) is captured by the Klingons, Saru (Doug Jones) becomes acting captain. With Michael (Sonequa Martin-Green) worried about the effects of the spore drive on the Tardigrade, this causes tension between the two.

Last week’s episode showed the pain that the Tardigrade went through every time it was forced to be navigator for the spore drive, and this week we see not only Michael, but Stamets (Anthony Rapp) and Tilly (Mary Wiseman) fight to protect it. Saru, wanting to show his power as captain forces them to use it, leading to unforeseen consequences. »

Star Trek: Discovery Recap: Wrestling With Mudd Just Gets You Dirty

15 October 2017 6:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Captain Lorca had to fight for his life this week on Star Trek: Discovery — and he didn’t get much help from a classic Trek character.

Lorca starts out the week on a Starfleet space station, bragging to Admiral Cornwell about all the great things the Discovery has accomplished since they fired up the spore drive. But on a shuttle ride back to his ship, he’s ambushed by Klingons, who kill the pilot and take Lorca hostage. (Seems they’ve heard a bit about this spore drive, too.) They throw Lorca in a prison cell, where he meets… Harry Mudd! »

'Star Trek: Discovery's' Anthony Rapp on 'Mind-Altering' Twist and Stamets' Love Life (Exclusive)

15 October 2017 6:30 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Sunday’s episode of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery.

Sacrifices don’t come without consequences.

On the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery, released Sunday on CBS All Access, one member of the USS Discovery crew made a critical decision that saved the starship fleet, including its imprisoned captain (who's sharing a cell with Rainn Wilson's Harvey Mudd), from imminent disaster. 

Lieutenant Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp), scientific mastermind, reluctantly teams up with mutineer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) to figure out a dangerous alternative to make a necessary long jump without relying on the Tardigrade (aka the Ripper), which locks into survival mode after its last painful trip to the reaction cube. Stamets, it’s revealed, injects himself with the spore technology, saving Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs), the Discovery crew and the Ripper. But the unknown consequences of Stamets’ decision is a mystery that will unravel »

"The Walking Dead" - All Out War

12 October 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more new footage from Season 8 of AMC's "The Walking Dead" 'zombie' TV series, debuting its 100th episode, titled "Mercy", October 22, 2017:

"...last season, 'Rick Grimes' and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. 

"With the comfort of 'Alexandria', they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.

"Feeling powerless under the rules and demands from the repulsive 'Negan', Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn't be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the 'Saviors'. And with the support of the 'Hilltop' and 'Kingdom', they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

"This season, Rick brings 'All Out War' to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless...

"...but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. »

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×04 – The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry’ Review

10 October 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

If Star Trek: Discovery is going to have one problem it is that fans expect a certain continuity in the show. It was built-in the original series and continue to Next Generation and beyond. With a teasing of a darker Star Trek, is Discovery testing the limits of what is Star Trek, or aiming for something entirely different.

Now a part of the U.S.S. Discovery’s crew (but with no rank) Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) is given the task of testing the creature caught in last week’s episode to see how it can aid Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs) gain an edge on the Klingons. When a disaster calls for action, the creature is found to be useful, but at what cost?

You could argue that “The needs of the many outweigh the few. Or the one” and that idea is laid on thick this week. The question is though, »

The Walking Dead Season 8 Review

8 October 2017 9:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided for review.

For any show that’s been on the air for as long as The Walking Dead has, one of the most difficult things to do is to continue to stay relevant and raise the stakes season after season. Even great shows can fall flat with age, and while the zombie epic’s seventh season was one of the most divisive and controversial in recent memory, it was anything but flat, mostly thanks to a villain so insidious that he rattled the show’s fanbase to the core and sent ripples throughout pop culture as a whole.

How do you top Negan? There are few – if any – characters in television history nastier, more despicable and more charismatic than this grinning, greaser asshat. He’s an unmitigated force of nature, and while some fans found his unique brand of bludgeoning and barbarism too unsavory to watch »

Star Trek: Discovery Recap: But Wait! There's Spore!

8 October 2017 8:29 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Captain Lorca and the Star Trek: Discovery crew harnessed a powerful new form of transportation this week… but, like a lot of things on this show, it came at a steep price.

Burnham’s now a full member of the Discovery crew, with a uniform and everything. (She also has a package from the late Captain Georgiou that she refuses to open.) Saru and his threat ganglia still think Burnham should be headed to prison, but Lorca gives her an assignment: He shows her the bloodthirsty slug-like creature he has trapped in a containment pen, and orders her to find »

"She's a queen,” Star Trek Discovery's Sonequa Martin-Green told New York Comic Con today of original Star Trek cast member Nichelle Nichols.

CBS shuffles its Star Trek: Discovery schedule

7 October 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Riding high off the early success of the new series, CBS has announced a slight shuffle to its Star Trek: Discovery schedule.

Originally, the plan was for eight episodes to air through to November, leading into a midseason break through to January, at which point the final seven episodes would get underway. However, we’ll now be getting nine episodes in the first half of the season, with the final six being held back until after the break.

Star Trek: Discovery is proving to be a big hit for CBS, with the network announcing that it has surpassed expectations with regards to CBS All Access subscribers, with the streaming service’s numbers up 200% since Discovery’s premiere last month.

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×03 – Context is for Kings’ Review

3 October 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Now that the first two episodes are out-of-the-way, Star Trek: Discovery can get down to business with the real story.  Feeling much more like the traditional “first episode after a pilot”, Context is for Kings feels like this is the real start of Star Trek: Discovery.

Finding herself on the U.S.S. Discovery Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) is enlisted to help on the ship. With old faces such as Saru (Doug Jones) returning into her life, it is evident that her history as a mutineer is well-known to the crew. Meeting Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs), many questions are raised for Burnham, most importantly what secrets is he hiding?

When we are re-introduced to Burnham she is broken, she doesn’t expect to become part of another crew, or want it. In ways, this may be what opens her eyes more to things on the U.S.S. Discovery that just aren’t right, »

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and the Significance of Burnham’s Trip Down the Rabbit Hole

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Star Trek: Discovery” Episode 3, “Context Is for Kings.”]

Star Trek” has a long history of citing what we modern viewers would consider classic literature. The references serve multiple purposes: to offer insight into the character quoting the material, to make the futuristic character more relatable, and to reassure us that millennia into the future, some part of our culture has endured in recognizable form. For mutineer Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green), her classic novel of choice is “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”

On the USS Glenn, Burnham provides a diversion to draw the unidentified creature away from the boarding party. As she’s crawling frantically through the Jefferies Tubes, she starts to recite a paraphrased excerpt from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”

Star Trek: Discovery's Jason Isaacs Says Not to Dismiss Lorca's 'Doomed' Plan: 'The Writers' Room Is Full of Diehards'

2 October 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

With its third episode (now streaming on CBS All Access), Star Trek: Discovery finally revealed its true self.

Having spent its first hours establishing Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green) as an (almost) exemplary First Officer aboard the Shenzhou, the series this Sunday night found the convicted mutineer hitching a ride aboard the U.S.S. Discovery, where her presence was perhaps not entirely happenstance. Rather, Captain Gabriel Lorca can’t help but wonder if the notorious commander who started a war with the long-dormant Klingons might want to lend her considerable skills to helping end it.
