We have a lift off! (almost gave a 10.. only 1 obvious annoying flaw)
5 February 2018 | by boonhead-nlSee all my reviews

I'll keep it short and sweet this time..

Pro: Much much depth of characters; wouw!. Believable, conflicting, messy human emotions. This episode is trying to touch those far reaching emotions most shows/episodes never dare to or come close to. (And Saru moves more alien: +1)

Con: Dear mister camera man, could you stop acting like an amateur and hold that camera steady? I'm getting motion sickness by which I'm being pulled (ripped) out of what is other wise an awesomely immersive Star Trek experience.

(Dear mister boss of the camera man: I know the camera man is not at fault.. Don't be a newbie.. don't tell your camera man this extreme sh-sh-sh-shaking spells out "action".. because in truth, it spells out "irritation" when trying your hardest to focus on a screen that goes all over the place.. a story should come to the viewer (that's entertainment), the viewer's eyes should not be hunting for reference points frames by frame..)
