  1. This episode was...A LOT. I think it would've been sufficient for the judge to be a predatory asshole. They didn't need to have him be a bigot too. And I agree with others who've said the judge's confession in the bathroom was a little convenient. I did like the actress who played the trail judge.
  2. Does anyone know the name of the actor playing the judge? I know his face, but I can't place it and it's driving me nuts!
  3. Lots of abusive behavior and logic from Marco in this episode. From gaslighting Naomi to humiliating Filip in front of the entire crew of the Pella, he was just appalling. I LOVED that battle between the Rocinante and the Zmeya. Bull did some fancy flying. But now I am wondering if the protomolecule was even on the Zmeya, or if there was a handoff to the Pella or another ship in Marco's fleet. Brilliant seeing Naomi leap toward the Chetezemoka.
  4. It's nice to see Fin have some happiness (had we even seen his apartment before) Once the case took the (very predictable) turn of Mickey killing AJ, I wasn't as into it. But it was nice to see Barba again. I liked his sparring with Carisi.
  5. The episode with Pedro Pascal is good. I have WAY too many podcasts on my Stitcher feed. My favorites are: FANTI, hosted by Tre'vell Anderson and Jarret Hill, the premise of this podcast is that they discuss problematic faves, so they do a "Fan" and an "Anti" segment on a celeb (Kanye West) or a piece of pop culture (the Real Housewives franchise. Slow Burn from Slate. Each season covers a different topic (Watergate, the Clinton Impeachment) Factually with Adam Conover. Adam Ruins Everything, but make it a podcast. Several Ringer podcasts - The Watch, Big Picture and Binge Mode, all focusing on some aspect of pop culture. Past Present, a podcast hosted by three historians, relating current events to historical events from the past. NPR's Code Switch, hosted by Gene Demby and Shereen Marisol Meraji, this podcast focuses on race in US culture.
  6. Glen Weldon is wonderful. I miss him when he's not on an episode of PCHH.
  7. I love the 6th season, but that "development" of Bashir (and Quark!) pining for Jadzia was...odd. Jadzia's relationship with Julian had settled into a lovely friendship. He not only accepted her relationship with Worf, but he was happy for her when they got married. So this turn was unnecessary and silly. Now that I'm on to season 7 (watched the first 3 episodes last night), I see the writers planting the seeds of the Ezri/Bashir romance. Which is fine, but Ezri telling Bashir that if Worf hadn't come along, Julian would've been her choice was...I don't know, it seemed deeply unnecessary and a bit of a retcon.
  8. I'm on season 7, but I need to say a word about the season 6 finale, "Tears of the Prophets." How did they give Jadzia the stupidest, least meaningful death possible? Badass Jadzia dies at the hands of a possessed Dukat (which, WTF?) Make it make sense, beloveds.
  9. Yeah, Amos seemed like he didn't know what to say in response to Clarissa. I think he didn't even realize why he went to see her. Great scene - and great work from both actors.
  10. It's eerie, right! Yeah, I've been watching the aftershow episodes, and Wes seems like a natural at hosting.
  11. Yes, of course! I'm still upset about Shed dying the way he did - yes, even 5 seasons later!
  12. I skipped season 2 of this show, but the trailer for season 3 has me intrigued.
  13. Jasai Chase Owens, who plays Filip and Jeff Woolnough, who directed the episode, are guests on The Expanse Aftershow
  14. Aw man, did they have to kill Ryn? I felt so bad for Book. TIL the replicated food is made of recycled shit. Thanks, Admiral Vance. Osyraa removing the apple from her mouth upon hearing that was pretty funny. I kind of dig the sphere data. I loved the bridge crew teaming up with Booker to break out of the cell. Ha! I thought of that as well. Glad I wasn't alone in that. Yeah, I predict a lot of tension between them.
  15. I rewatched this episode and it really hit me what an abusive dick Marco is. Toying with Naomi, and taunting her about how leaving is what she does best (disregarding that he was the reason she left); and then manipulating Filip with that speech about how he has to put his feelings about his mother aside to stand with Marco. Textbook abusive behavior. And what's equally disturbing to watch is how the rest of Marco's inner circle just looks the other way, or thinks "Well, he's the leader of our revolution, so I guess it's ok if he treats Naomi like shit." WTF. Don't know if the writers are planning a redemption arc for Filip, but if they do, well that should be very interesting. On a more positive note, I loved seeing Clarissa - in the midst of all the chaos and death around her - take a moment to appreciate the feel of the wind on her face.
  16. The dead silence at the end of the episode was chilling. And I did get a bit nauseous at all the twists and turns in the Razorback, excuse me, the Screaming Firehawk. Still loving Bobbie's clear-eyed focus on her mission. Loved seeing Amos and Clarissa together. That guy Konecheck was...A LOT! Also liked when they all got to the top of the building, and we saw the devastation from the asteroid hit. I'm assuming we see more next week. I'm really glad Naomi got the message to Naomi about the ship being sabotaged.
  17. In the books, both Bobbie and Clarissa eventually become part of the Roci crew. Don't know if the show will follow that. I guess if they could replace Alex with either character, but I'd rather them recast Alex, or bring in a new pilot character.
  18. I had to go on IMDB and find out who played Su'Kal, and lo and behold it was Bill Irwin, one of my favorite hey-it's-that-guys. And he did a great job in the role of Su'Kal. Saru hearing stories from the Kelpian elder reminded me of scenes on Deep Space Nine when Odo first went to the changeling homeworld. So poignant. I've been a fan of Doug Jones since the first Hellboy movie, so I enjoyed seeing his face sans makeup. I think I heard her called Dr. Pollard. Wonder how the Discovery crew's going to get out of their current jam - and who we might lose along the way.
  19. This is the episode where things began to click for me, which is to say, I actually became invested in the characters (will it last, who knows?) The characters I'm enjoying the most are Lady Danbury, Eloise and of course Queen Charlotte.
  20. I haven't read any of the books, but I heard good things about this one. Is it any good?
  21. I'm re-reading Babylon's Ashes now and I just read the part where Fred is killed, so seeing him die so soon in the show was disappointing. I feel like they should have kept Fred around at least until the end of this season, if for no other reason than Chad Coleman is awesome and makes everything better! Plus, Fred's fairly important in this part of the Inaros story.
  22. Holy shit that was good! I have not felt an episode this deeply in my bones since season 3's "Fallen World" RIP, Fred! Gone too soon. The attack on Tycho Station was legit terrifying. When Holden realized what was happening, my heart sped up (and it was already racing!) And RIP Nancy. It's a real shame you did not listen to Chrisjen before it was too late (shades of real life, tbh) LOVED seeing Peaches and Amos! That relationships is one of my favorites in this series. Feel so bad for Naomi. She is grieving the loss of her son on many levels. Also felt terrible for Chrisjen. Not only might her whole family be dead, but now she might have to help guide Earth through a planetwide crisis. Damn.
  23. I'm coming around on Luke's appearance AS LONG AS this doesn't transform the story of The Mandalorian into a story about The SkywalkersTM and the show continues to focus on Mando's adventures and his bond with Grogu. I'm not deep into the lore of the Jedi, but aren't some of their views kinda problematic? What happens to Grogu once he's been trained to use his powers? Does he get to go his own way?
  24. I full-on screamed when Carl intoned "I am the Guardian of Forever." Beautiful sendoff for Georgiou. I teared up when she said goodbye to Michael. Michelle Yeoh - I stand in awe. I was a little disappointed that we didn't actually see Lorca. I really liked that character. I continue to covet the ladies' makeup in the Mirror Universe.
  25. Din Djarin taking off his helmet to let Grogu touch his face and say goodbye? All. The. Feelings. I got a little thrill when Bo-Katan, Fennec, Cara and Koska were slashing their way through Gideon's cruiser. Giancarlo Esposito was fun in this one. He clearly revels in playing the baddie. Same same - minus the Sebastian Stan part* Listen! This is how I'm feeling about Luke's appearance right now (Might change my mind when I rewatch). I don't have a ton of investment in Luke because truthfully, The Mandalorian is the most I have ever been engaged with the Star Wars universe. I'll be curious to see how Grogu and Mando's storyline unfolds from here. I've liked Sebastian Stan since his days on Gossip Girl, so if this show wants to bring him on as young Luke next season, well, let's just say, I wouldn't be opposed to it.
