"Star Trek: Discovery" season 3 wrap-up
The third “Star Trek: Discovery” season is over, and we’ve split our thoughts up into two separate panels. Jason’s will be over on The Incomparable, but Scott’s is right here! He’s joined by five special guests to discuss the ups and downs of this season....
Discovery S3E13: "That Hope Is You, Part 2"
“Star Trek: Discovery” season 3 has reached its end. Jason and Scott liked the episode but also have a bunch of complaints. (They start with the complaints, to get them out of the way.) Where does this episode leave us? What’s season 4 going to be like? It’s a momentous episode and we take our time breaking it down. Want more “Discovery” talk? We’ll be back in about a week for a special season wrap-up panel hosted by Scott, and Jason will host an additional wrap-up panel on The Incomparable....
Discovery S3E12: "There is a Tide..."
It’s the penultimate episode of season three of “Discovery” and a lot is happening! “Die Hard” homages! A jerk who we thought was dead returns! Osyraa… has more depth than we previously thought? We liked this episode, though some of the twists don’t seem set up very well. Also we theorize about what happened to the Ferengi in the last 1000 years, and have some ideas about how season four might play out. Onward to 2021 and the finale! Happy New Year!...
Discovery S3E11: "Su'Kal"
On Christmas Eve, Scott and Jason sneak a look at one present under the tree—it’s a new episode of “Star Trek: Discovery!” And does it take a surprising and weird turn. We break down the holo-shenanigans, as well as what transpires back on the ship. Onward to New Year’s Eve!...
Discovery S3E10: "Terra Firma, Part 2"
This week we return to the ISS Discovery to see just how Georgiou’s time in the Prime Universe has changed her, before the show sends her off to whatever is next. (It’s a spin-off!) Also, we discuss story arcs versus standalone episodes, the dearth of sci-fi TV available when Scott and Jason were kids, and why there’s no eating in the Spore Chamber. Sit on it, Potsie!...
Discovery S3E9: "Terra Firma, Part 1"
In the first of a two-part episode, it’s all about Georgiou and her relationship with Burnham. And it goes to some very interesting places. Perhaps you all saw this coming, but Scott and Jason were surprised, because they’re suckers. Also, we meet this year’s new break-out Star Trek character! He’s got a bowler hat and will give you cryptic answers to all your questions because he just wants to sit in his comfy Adirondack chair and read tomorrow’s newspaper! Let’s hear it for Carl!...
I like this podcast especially because they are always quick after the episode and I generally agree with most their takes. They are generally pretty positive about discovery.
I dont understand their criticism of discovery’s story arcs and pacing which ia my favorite part of the show. I love that I never know if a discovery plot will wrap up in an episode or go on all season. This adds so much unpredictability to the show.
I absolutely enjoy listening to these guys. Just started listening to this podcast. Listened to a few episodes on Discovery Seadon 1 and most for season 3. I really enjoy them and their positive love and fair criticism of Star Trek❤️❤️❤️
One host understands how to amplify his voice, is funny and interesting; the other is a vocal fry machine and literally whispers to the point that I can’t hear or understand him. Please get that dude some voice lessons or something. Use your voice, or otherwise animate it please? Otherwise a good show.
