It’s been 12 years since Star Trek has had a TV series. Now CBS has brought back this tradition, with the launch of Star Trek: Discovery this Fall. Trek is on TV again–where, I’d argue, it properly belongs.
So did this new take on the iconic space opera live up to the hype and hoped dreams?
Can’t believe it’s been another whole year, but Game of Thrones is back! HBO’s adaptation of George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, with its feuding houses, Stark siblings, a Khaleesi and her dragons, has finally returned. And so have my Monday morning recaps. Like last time (since George hasn’t gotten the The Winds of Winter out yet) I’m completely in the dark. We’re all non-readers now. So then, “Shall we begin?”
With the buzz last month that the late Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time is moving forward at Sony Pictures, could we be looking at the most diverse fantasy story (so far) to make its way into popular media?
Maybe. Or maybe not.
As the dice tumble and wheel turns, let’s discuss right quick.
