SFDebris posted his newest Discovery-review, episode 13 "What's Past Is Prologue": http://sfdebris.com/videos/startrek/c113.php Now, normally I think a single episode-review is not necessarily a reason for an entire thread. But in my opinion, this warrants one, because Chuck goes very much into details about the show in general. Things I find especially noteworthy in this video: A great characterisation of Lorca Now, I personally only ever saw post-reveal-Lorca as a moustache-twirling evil wanna-be world overtaker, whose only characterisation was his evil plan. That was because pre-reveal Lorca was pretty interesting - it was obvious he had a dark secret, but after the reveal, he never layed down his motivations, instead only spurring cheap B-movie dialogue about him defeating the heroes and becoming the new Terran leader. Chuck spans a quite interesting bow, where he connects the pre-reveal actions with his post-reveal motivations, even so far as comparing him to "Macbeth". I'm not so sure I agree, but it's an interesting perspective nonetheless. The other interesting thing is his brutal smackdown of Discovery's junk-science: Remember, this one is the episode where they HAVE TO SAVE THE ENTIRE MULTIVERSE! He puts a lot of thoughts I had about that in a very concise way, better than I ever could, and I think it's just damn entertaining watching him rage so hard against that, while at the same time taking the characters and their motivations as serious and honest as he does. The third most interesting thing - one I honestly already forgot about - was that he asks: Why do they work with Georgiou against Lorca, not with Lorca against Georgiou? Sure, Lorca is evil as well. But Georgiou is the one that bombed a planet, built universe-destroying WMDs, and ate sentient beings for pleasure. Lorca...did none of that. Enjoy. And discuss!
