Jesus 1 of them shouldn't be compared to the other. Its a comedy.

Also, discovery is legit if you stay with it

Heard this but never went back. The first few episodes really tuned me out.

It was more of a terrible Abrams Star Trek than Star Trek.

The first televised interracial kiss was full screen and lengthy.


In the context of the episode, it was forced upon Kirk to do so. I know it very well, I took my username on this website from the villain in that episode. It was also because she was the main female character, with the other being Nurse Chapel. If Yeoman Rand was still on the show, it'd be her.

TOS/TNG had diversity without the SJW crap. Discovery had to add a black woman to be raised by Sarek and also ruin the Klingons.

If you sample another episode, go to the Harry Mudd "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad" episode.

It's a Groundhog Day episode that they created to save on their budget (that ended up being one of the best of the season).

Tasha Yar always gave off a gay vibe imo. She was at least very adventurous given that she almost banged Data

Discovery got more Star Trek as it went along. I couldn’t finish Orville.


Me either. It started out promising, but just turned out to be stupid. Two gay aliens sitting on an egg isn't high comedy to me. I think millenials will like it more than us baby boomers.

That episode reminded me of the show Quark.

Check your recordings. Fox is showing to be announced in the slot so it won’t record automatically. At least for me it’s that way

DirecTV showed it as the Orville when I checked the guide to dvr.

Bortus describing how he feels after sex is one the best things I've seen on TV.
Bout time a porno computer virus hit outer space.

Could've cut back on some of the couple's stuff to focus on the dying planet.

His simulations were hilarious. Him being a virgin trapped in the dungeon made me laugh the hardest. And of course his need for even freakier porn gives the ship a virus

Apparently this episode was a part of season one and got pushed back to this season for some reason.

***SPOILERS***

quote:

Bortus: It is…a call…from deep within, like a baby seeking its mother’s teet. It feels as if nothing else in the world matters but…satisfying the urge…and, achieving the goal my body has demanded of me. Then, as quickly as it began, it is complete. Leaving a worn out shell in its wake. And the only feeling I am left with, the only thing I know is that…a death has occurred.

Isaac: I see. It is prudent that you are in therapy.

It was an od episode, but very Trek like.

The main story you had an Alien with an addiction to porn that caused problems with his spouse and Captain. The background story was more intersting and culminated in a colony in a dying planet.
The ending was pretty dark, with 30 people chosen by lottery. 45 survivors died with the planet.

Bortus' porn brought in a virus that nearly wiped out the ship. Interesting, not great.

Some odd scenes. I'm sure those that see SJW influences will hate it.

3/5

At least I know which species to NOT get porn from in the future.

Well there was poor Reg Barclay, fantasizing about Troi while he's supposed to be helping solve an engineering problem.

The choice to only save thirty was huge. No attempt to strip the ship or over load and get pulled in. Almost like it was an afterthought.
