Wolf in the Fold revisited

Rewatching Star Trek, The Original Series on Netflix. Just watched the episode Wolf in the Fold, one of my favorite episodes. I still see that as a missed opportunity for a really good two parter. I know budget limitations prevented

Star Trek: Discovery – Social Justice Vigilantes

I don’t even know where to start, I am so frustrated.  Militant Progressives have taken over Star Trek in the worst way.  Instead of “social justice,” they are portraying “social revenge” or “social vigilantism” in their stories.  Now I see

Serialized TV: It’s killing good story.

This article – Serialized Television Has Become a Disease – hit the nail on the head for me.  I have been saying this for a while.  There are some shows that pull it off pretty well, primarily because they are based
