“Lower Decks:” Come For The Gags, Stay For The “Star Trek”

“Star Trek” has returned to animation for the first time since 1974. Like it’s older animated sibling, “Lower Decks” isn’t the same as its live-action counterparts. It’s familiar, but the pacing of what we know of “Star Trek” is different. Especially in the case of “Lower Decks,” which plays like a marriage of “Star Trek: […]

“As I Have Always Been” Fascinated With Time Travel

Daisy (Chloe Bennet) is our lucky looper. The Zephyr has made its way into a time storm and can’t get out. Each loop brings it closer and closer to demise. The only people who can fix the situation are Enoch (Joel Stoffer) and Jemma (Elizabeth Henstridge). They have it hard-wired not to help so as not to give away Fitz’s location though. Meanwhile, Coulson (Clark Gregg) can retain his memory and coaches Daisy on how to get closer to solving the problem.

Agents Of SHIELD Bring Someone Out Of The Past

What is an LMD like you doing in a slightly altered past like this? “Out of the Past” is the film-noir tribute that the producers of “Agents of SHIELD” have probably wanted to do since one of them first mentioned time-travel. Fortunately, it’s a fun roll through the genre. It also packs a little more into the look at racism and sexism that “Alien Commies From The Future!” started. The future also gets a gift from the past that is pretty spoilery, so we’ll talk about that later.

“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 pacing of the season was a bit off, too slow at times while rushed at others. I think that is the price for a season meant to pay off the past. Now that we’ve acknowledged the future of “The Next Generation,” it will be a bit easier to move on.

We have the understanding we need to realize where Picard is now and how the rest of the universe might feel about him. We also have, for better or worse, his team together. Some might find the challenging of the almost god-like status of Jean-Luc Picard troubling, but the progression of the character makes sense. He took a stand, and it didn’t go as planned.
