“Et In Arcadia Ego, Part Two” “Star Trek: Picard” Episode 10 Review

Overall it’s been a satisfying season with “Picard.” It’s good to see Patrick Stewart embody the role again and give the character a new life at the same time.

“The Timeless Children” – Doctor Who Series Finale Review

Could it be possible the BBC is gearing up to have more than one Doctor at a time? As the Master once said, “A cosmos without the Doctor scarcely bears thinking about.” A cosmos with two at a time, though? “The Timeless Children” introduces endless possibilities.
