DS9 Rewatch: Season 2, Episodes 11-17 2

This group of episodes starts off strong with Rivals in my opinion. There’s not a whole lot of meat to this episode… it’s a standard “Macguffin makes things go wacky in the station and the crew has to figure out the source and stop it”-type episode that doesn’t have any metaplot for meat. But it’s just ...

[Movie] Jojo Rabbit

I don’t think there are a whole lot of directors I’d trust to make a funny movie that involves Nazis, but Taika Waititi has earned it. Though now I keep wondering: a) Has Mel Brooks seen this movie? and b) Did he love it as much as I hope he did? Because Jojo Rabbit is ...

DS9 Rewatch: Season 2, Episodes 8-10

Necessary Evil is a damn good episode, I think. Two connected murder (or in Quark’s case, attempted murder) mysteries running in parallel, one in the DS9 present, one in the past that’s told in flashbacks. It’s an episode with such solid character work for both Odo and Kira, explaining their friendship, expanding it, and then ...

The Shitty Trans Take of Remothered: An Analysis 1

The Shitty Trans Take of Remothered: An Analysis
One of my social activities is playing horror video games with my friends. Which is to say, my housemate does the hard part of actually driving, and me and my best friend sit and watch and offer helpful advice like “oh god, run away!” because we are both giant weenies who forget how to use ...

DS9 Rewatch: Season 2, Episodes 4-7

After the short arc of the first three episodes, we’re back into more standalones. Invasive Procedures is about Deep Space Nine being taken over during a plasma storm because there’s only a skeleton crew left aboard. The mastermind of the takeover is an unjoined Trill named Verad, who has decided that he is entitled to the ...

DS9 Rewatch: Season 2, Episodes 1-3 1

The Homecoming starts out out with a Bajoran earring… and it’s enough to make me even more curious about them, since they’re apparently singular enough that Kira can look at one and know exactly who it belongs to. Which in this case is a war hero who everyone thought was dead. But the earring implies ...

For the first time in my life, I don’t give a shit what the science says. 3

It’s a thing that happens in the cess pit of social media every day. Some anti-trans dipshit pops up with a declaration: “Science says there are only two genders!” (What they really mean is that there are only two sexes, which is wrong according to current science, and then conflating sex with gender, which is… ...

DS9 Rewatch: Season 1, episode 13-19 3

The Storyteller was… look, I was drunk while I watched it. It was okay? You had parallel plots of the young Bajoran Tetrarch trying to figure out how to negotiate, and the Bajoran village figuring out how to name a new “storyteller” to keep it unified. The only real problem I have with the episode ...
