    1, 2, 3, 4, 5 girls? That’s my kind of party! But I’ll bet you there will be much...

    “Crying at the DISCOtheque”



    I’ll let myself out.

    Sounds a bit like a Q or Trelane will visit the ship...

    Q: Con permiso, Capitan. The hall is rented, the orchestra engaged. It's now time to see if you can dance.

    In hindsight, while rap is a more contemporary genre (to us), disco might have been more fitting with the theme of the show.

    The hemline of the skirts will go up in about a dozen years. Dr. Bashir approves of the concept.

    Spent 12 hours straight this weekend playing Super Mario Odyssey, then 9 hours straight watching Stranger Things season 2.

    Bring on the crazy & the timey-wimey.
    I'm already there.

    Ok, BEFORE to see the episode, who is put those funny (maybe even ridiculous) names to episodes???
    will be next "Cold hearts as a shower waters", "Pizzas is better cold served at nights", or.. "A better future for boldly bald men"... kind of things???

    Well, except that the ones you give as examples don't make much sense. These do make sense; like them or not, they're quoting famous works of literature. Not that that's necessarily a metric for quality, but still.

    I don't know but he spent half an hour writing one of Discovery's episode titles. They seem so wordy.

    Wonder who the sanest man is? Can't be Lorca.

    Trying to “rewatch” last week’s episode, because it was unintelligible because of the glitches.

    Still glitchy, but at least I’m getting an error message most of the times it stops. Anyone else seeing the same?

    Think I’ll go back to Netflix and finish Stranger Things 2. At least the episodes play through...

    Last week I said the episode portrayed Burnham like 7 of 9. I'm doubling down on that thought.

    This show can't even break the Bechdel test without clunky dialog.
