Attentat 1942 is a serious video game that explores the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia during World War II from the perspective of civilians who survived it. It’s a heart wrenching affair at times, but perfectly shows how videogames can tell masterful stories.
Discovery is back for chapter 2, and we’re heading to the Mirror Universe and blowing up fan theories in this first installment while getting some fantastic character beats and some questionable story calls in one of Discovery’s stronger episodes.
Discovery sets the stage for its Fall Season Finale with space pollen (sort of), mysterious aliens (definitely), and Klingon intrigue on the Ship of the Dead.
“Into the Fold” gives us an Orville episode about Claire Finn, her kids, and the awkward robot during the universe’s absolute worst vacation.
Now, for the overdue Part II of my October catch-up post in which I cover all of October’s Star Trek: Discovery. And with that, I’m caught up from October, just in time for tonight’s episode of the Orville! It’s a good time to be a Star Trek fan!
Unimatrix 47 returns with a rapid-fire catch-up post on the Orville, talking about where the show has been with an eye toward where it might be going.
Discovery is not only breaking ground on a new vision of Star Trek, it’s also exploring new Star Trek science, and we talk to a few scientists about whether it’s doing that well or poorly.
In “Context is for Kings”, Michael Burnham gets out of jail, uncovers mystery on the Discovery, and outruns a space monster on a derelict ship of horrors.
In the previous episode of CBS’s Discovery, the USS Shenzhou paused unknowingly on the brink of disaster, and Star Trek: Discovery just ran with it, leading us into the heart of the beginning of the Federation/Klingon conflict and a conflict within Michael Burnham herself.
In “If the Stars Should Appear”, the Orville tackles faith, control, and truth in a surprisingly effective and sensitive way with help from a guest star.
