A prequel to Star Trek - (1966 show) but with canon revisionism.

Boss girls, shit exposition, sprinkled with wokeness, too many distractingly-ugly women.

  • Properly titled Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

A handful of Nazi scientists have toiled in secret to find and use a ring kept by some Americans in Egypt which they believe leads to an advanced civilization.

A rehash of other ideas done in a somewhat more amateur way, with a cheap ending as a prequel to either the original movie or series. Interesting to watch if you're a fan of the franchise but absolutely skippable if you're not.

Plucky tertiary crewmates do stuff and things I guess.

Le yawn.

This goes back in time to the original finding of the stargate, and stars a character we all know lives and so cannot be in any danger at all ever.

This just comes across like short-episode fan fiction.

An experimental gate technique strands unlikely survivors on an ancient ship.

A fair show. That's pretty much all I can say about it, really. It has some significant presentation of humans being human, which is rare and special.

A family is lost in space.

It's not bad, but the tone bothers me. It's so tryhard "epic" that it's strained.

Its first impression is that it's sort of Star Trek parody-thing, it quickly unfolds into its own unique space-adventure-drama.

Fantastic originality and mood. Recommended, rapidly approaching highly recommended.

Verdict: While it's good, it's not great, at least not for me. I got bored in the first couple of episodes of season two. Definitely recommended for anyone who enjoyed the first several episodes.

Like other shows these days, I became interested in this purely because "those people" "hate" it.
