‘American Gods’ Season 2 Secures Jesse Alexander as New Showrunner

Bryan Fuller cannot catch a damn break. After cutting his teeth on Star Trek: Voyager, Fuller started creating some of the most inventive series on television, such as Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, and Pushing Daisies, all of which were cancelled before he and his creative team got to fully explore the narrative worlds or their underlying thematic ideas. He also wrote and worked as a consulting producer on Heroes, and you can see his fingerprints all over that botches series' best episodes. This is all the more devastating considering just how radical and evocative his longest-running series, Hannibal, ended …

‘The Orville’ Season 1: What’s Improved, What Hasn’t, and What May Be The Show’s Fatal Flaw

‘The Orville’ Season 1: What’s Improved, What Hasn’t, and What May Be The Show’s Fatal Flaw
It’s been somewhat impossible to detangle any critical consideration of Fox’s “The Orville” from “Star Trek,” the franchise to which it’s hard to deny a connection. But even when evaluating “The Orville” on its own merits at the start of Season 1, the first three episodes screened by critics were hard-going, as Seth MacFarlane’s “space adventure” featured a wildly fluctuating tone, major pacing issues, and entire scenes that served only to deliver exposition.

It was enough to inspire a harsh review when the show premiered. But while the problems with those early episodes were numerous, some of them could be attributed to the sort of stumbles that occur at the beginning of any new series.

This Outlander Romance Isn't in the Books, but We're Totally Rooting For It

  • BuzzSugar
One of the best changes the Outlander writers have made from the book is the character of Mr. Willoughby. His portrayal in Voyager is problematic, with a lot of the good aspects of the character being overshadowed by stereotypes and a lack of character development. He is definitely an instance of a supporting character (one of color, in this case) who seems to be there solely to advance the main character's story rather than getting much story of his own. But Outlander may be changing that. The show has already made him less of a caricature and more of a person, but in the latest episode, the show is perhaps setting up a future for him that the book did not.

Star Trek: Discovery episode 9 review: Into The Forest I Go

James Hunt Nov 14, 2017

Star Trek Discovery signs off for its winter hiatus with an episode that has it all. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

1.9 Into The Forest I Go

Well, I think it’s fair to say that Discovery has completely found its feet. This episode had it all: character drama, plot twists, the rich tapestry of all human life on display, and a space ship blowing the hell up. Tng took three seasons to put my heart in my throat during an action sequence. Disco has done it after fewer than ten episodes.

At this point, I feel naught but pity for Trek fans who can’t engage with the show, because they’re missing out on a great experience: a progressive and optimistic show, but one which is also nuanced and subtle. Complaints

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Producers Unpack the Midseason Finale, and Why This is The Most Romantic ‘Star Trek’ Ever
[Editor’s Note: Spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 1 Episode 9, “Into the Forest I Go,” follow.]

Star Trek: Discovery” fans thrown off guard by the midseason finale’s ending, guess what? That was the plan. According to showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, that’s exactly what they wanted.

“Every couple of episodes, right around the time the audience feels like, ‘Oh, I know what you’re doing,’ we switch it up,” Berg told IndieWire. “It became a natural rhythm for the show, and it makes it really fun for us, the writers, everybody, really. Because it’s a way to keep it lively.”

The final moments of Episode 9, “Into the Forest I Go,” find the Discovery lost in unknown territory following a massive malfunction with the ship’s spore drive. “It felt like a great place to end the first half of the season, too,” Harberts said. “We had a lot of fun tracking the debate that the fans are having about where they think

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Fans May Have Predicted a Major Twist, And It’ll Be a Huge Bummer If It’s True

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Fans May Have Predicted a Major Twist, And It’ll Be a Huge Bummer If It’s True
Fan theories are a tricky thing to engage with, given how perceptive those rabid followers of popular programs can be. More often than not, these theories turn out to be right: In just the last year or two, major twists on “Mr. Robot” and “Westworld” were accurately guessed weeks before the respective shows actually revealed the truth. Now, the same may be true of a circulating theory regarding “Star Trek: Discovery,”

The following piece does not technically contain spoilers. But it is going to acknowledge an ongoing fan theory that you may or may not want to engage with, because — if it turns out to be true — it’s likely to be a major twist that’s revealed in the next episode of “Star Trek: Discovery,” given that it’s the mid-season finale and a big confrontation with the Klingons is coming.

‘Stranger Things 2’ Reinforced a Sexist and Ubiquitous Trope, But Season 3 Could Fix That

  • Indiewire
In the first season of “Stranger Things,” the quartet of young men (“the party,” to use the parlance of Dungeons and Dragons) is clearly a direct homage to the show’s love of Stephen King (many of King’s narratives revolve around similar friend groups). But it’s the addition of Eleven to the group — the “mage,” as Mike likes to refer to her — that aligns the show with an even more common trope.

Nearly any child of the ’80s and ’90s will fondly remember, as a part of their youth, watching cartoons. And for boys, there was a lot of fun to be had in identifying with certain characters. You could be a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” fan, but more intellectual types might consider themselves to be Donatello, while a more rebellious boy might prefer to don the red eye mask of Raphael.

What The Orville has to offer Star Trek fans

Juliette Harrisson Nov 6, 2017

Following news of its second season renewal and a December UK start date, here's why Star Trek fans might enjoy The Orville...

Let’s get one thing out of the way straight off the bat: this article is in no way a suggestion that Star Trek fans should watch The Orville instead of Star Trek: Discovery. Discovery is a great show – it features well-acted, compelling characters, an interesting arc plot, great visuals, really gorgeous ships and uniforms and Doug Jones actually getting to speak. We can assure you from personal experience that it is entirely possible to watch both Discovery and The Orville and enjoy both for different reasons.
