Superman: Red Son. Yes, he's a boring character; however, this take on him was very interesting.

Last night, Shaft (2019). Really enjoyable.

I've watched the first five episodes of Archer, Season 11.

I've been watching Star Trek: The Next Generation interspersed with my other viewings. I started with Season 4 and am up to Season 5.

What's funny is on Discovery the characters always discuss General Order One. I figure the Trek purists would scream bloody murder, exclaiming "It's the PRIME DIRECTIVE!!!" What's interesting is, about three our four episodes back from where I am in TNG, Picard had made reference to General Order One. It's amazing what one can learn by careful review.

It was always referred to as General Order One in the original series, so that's one thing that Discovery has actually got right. Too bad it's one of the only things.

Meh, this is what happens when the various aspects of the property are split. The producers had to alter certain aspects. Either way, there is going to be a Pike spinoff as the fans really loved Anson Mount and Rebecca Romjin's portrayals of Captain Pike and Number One.

I like what I'm hearing about it-- unfortunately, it's a spin off of Discovery, so I'm not getting my hopes up that it will be treated like a Prime Timeline show.
