Review: The Orville, Season 2

The Orville | Season 2 | Fox

It’s rare to be able to say that a show is unpredictable. Most of the time a fan can guess how an episode may turn out or what twists and turns can happen along the way. They may not be right, but they will be close. The Orville is a series that has traversed so much territory […]

Star Trek: Discovery — My Red Angel Issues.

Star Trek: Discovery continues to offer the best looking Star Trek ever, but the writing continues to take the show where no Star Trek has gone before.
