Star Trek: Picard (S1E10) Et in Arcadia Ego Part 2 Review

*SPOILERS* “Star Trek” is fond of borrowing from Shakespeare and “Star Trek” starring Patrick Stewart doubly so, so I wish I could say that nothing in “Star Trek: Picard” became it like the leaving of it but I can’t. What I can say is that “Et in Arcadia Ego Part 2” was “Star Trek: Picard”…

Star Trek: Picard (S1E09) Et in Arcadia Ego Part 1 Review

*SPOILER* Like “Star Trek: Voyager” and Marvel’s Avengers before it, “Star Trek Picard” has reached its endgame. In now-typical fashion, it’s a confusing and frenetic opening to the two-part “Et in Arcadia Ego”, one that makes you feel like you may have missed a scene or two at the end of the last episode.

Star Trek: Picard (S1E08) Broken Pieces Review

*SPOILERS* A great many things become clear as “Star Trek: Picard” manoeuvres its characters and pieces for its first season endgame.

Of course, its nothing that we hadn’t worked out ourselves already but when has that ever stopped this show from telling us anyway? The interesting…

Doctor Who: The Timeless Children (S12E10) Review

*SPOILERS* After last week’s cobbled together chaotic opener, “The Timeless Children” continues Season 12’s trend of two-part continuations which aren’t really two-part stories.

Star Trek: Picard (S1E06) The Impossible Box Review

*SPOILERS* We may have taken the long and painfully slow way round, but finally “Star Trek: Picard” brings its two storylines together and finds its Trekness again as Picard and co arrive at the Borg Reclamation Project and have a surprisingly (for this series) happy reunion in “The Impossible Box”. On the Borg cube, Narek…
