If I were a Discovery actor, and they told me I had to go shoot in the Canadian snow for a few days, I’d start worrying about my job prospects…
“What’s that? Trekkies are whinging about how episodes don’t have three unrelated subplots smooshed up against each other anymore? WELL THEN!”
Book is haunted by birbs, and I’m like, that’s a mood.
“Liz, Paramount has infamously withdrawn Discovery from your region and, indeed, all regions but the US and Canada, how are you even having opinions?”
Look. All I’ll say is that, going back to the heyday of CSI and Avatar: the Last Airbender, Viacom/CBS has always been slow to understand that, when it comes to media, regional boundaries are fake.
Did I keep my podcast posts up to date? I did not. Let’s not get into the question of who is responsible (me) or why that person (me) failed (laziness).
Let’s move on to the really important question: did I like season three of Discovery, and do I have things to say about it?
The answers are yes, and yes.
I tried, but 2020 got me! Creating a post for Discovery episodes started to feel more like work than fun — and fun is why I started this in the first place!
So I’m taking it easy on myself and having a break — but if you’re in desperate need of my opinions, fear not! I’m still podcasting, and I will be more diligent about sharing episodes here, in case you miss them.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the 32nd century!
Remember last week, when I thought it would be the pacing that ruined the season finale?
Ah, those were innocent days.
We’re into the finale, people! A finale so packed, it had to be split into two episodes!
Does this mean we’re going to avoid the pacing disaster of season one? I dare not even wonder!
