Pain to watch
19 November 2020 | by TuranicSee all my reviews

I am giving it a 5, a useless filler side quest episode. I get it, it ain't Next Generation, but seriously I had more joy watching filler episodes of shows like Dark Matter, Andromeda or Lexx and those were B rated tv shows... This one supposed to be A rated show and yet we get these stories about nothing with loads of Pew Pew, teleport here teleport there and technobabble , there is no discovery in this episode, there is no adventure - just Burnham going everywhere and kicking ass and her crew doing technobabble...
