I was surprised how much that final shot shook me up. Surprised too that Marvel actually went for it, given the aversion it seems to have to make the violence of its heroes tactile like that, and leaning so much into the Shield being symbolic of Steve. Made it all the more impactful. Read more
Watched the first two episodes of the first season and quite enjoyed them, but one thing I’m surprised put me off it was the gross out stuff and bloody violence. More grossed out than entertained in those bits. Can anyone tell me if that’s something that continues on in the first season and into this season?
Anyone know how this affects the UK release of the movie, due on May 7th? Like, will Premier Access on Disney Plus not be available until July in the UK?
Just before we have some of the usual ‘Cancel culture gone mad!’ comments, no, she is not being ‘cancelled’, she is facing the consequences of using a public platform, the internet equivalent of shouting out in the middle of the street, to make questionable comments, and Disney would rather not have to deal with it.… Read more
It’s weird how it’s offered to her in the episode, as Saru comments that she will only be his temporary number one until her can find a permanent replacement, which seems kind of a dick move in a way?

Can we talk about how terrible the green screen lighting is here? Like, we can see the sun is way off in in the distant background of all these characters, and yet all the light on the foreground actors has the light coming from the left.
Enjoyed the episode, but one thing that hit me is the fear that it’s tying into too much of the Star Wars Universe. This episode had a lot of ‘hey, remember this?’ compared to the first season. I enjoyed the first season based on it being a great tie in show that relied on almost no previous characters or lore to tell… Read more
No point in arguing with these people who make and comment on these ‘reviews’ of the Nu-Trek. The creators will find anything to nitpick, and these viewers will lap it up. They’ve decided in advance they’re going to despise it.
Accidentally watched one where the complaint was, in the frickin’ opening sequence of Lower… Read more
