Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 July 3

The Table is down to only six this week, and descriptions are down to two.  That is only if the short existential poetry of this week’s Westworld a description can be counted as a discription.  Before that Evil takes their show on the road.  Ms. Marvel gives us her fifth episode, and The Orville gives us “Twice in a lifetime” which one could guess is a title for a time-loop episode.  The Boys and Strange New Worlds both end their seasons this week, as well.

  1. The Boys: Best use of “Maniac:.

    Strange New Worlds: My only complaint was that I felt they didn’t do justice to Jim Kirk’s. Maybe it’s just that Pike was that awesome, but I don’t think the other portrayal was accurate enough.

    That said, everything else in the episode was amazing. The special effects on the Admiral were subtle, but the aging was impressive.
    I need to go watch the referenced ToS episode again.
    I loved Discovery, but this is the best Trek show yet.

  2. The Orville ends is a good episode. Sci-Fi trope to display some moral quandary. The ending is a twist to the trope that I though was beautifully sci-fi. Trek is still so much better than any of the rest of TV, but if you are looking for Star Trek that can appeal to the Star Wars populace, you can do far worse than The Orville.

    Unrelated, but there’s more than one point in the episode someone refills their glass, and I noticed it wasn’t actually emptied before they go get the refill. Weird.
