Hoo boy.

Alright. I'll give the episode this: It had good character interaction.

But the plot? Ugggggggggggggggggggh.

Listen, show. You seem to get that your magic fungus drive is really stupid. Otherwise, we wouldn't have had Reno's awesome dialogue last episode. So why are you making an entire episode about it where you pull a bunch of even stupider traits of the mycelial network out of nowhere? So the mycelial network that supposedly underpins the entire multiverse is somewhere you can just walk around? And you can transport people there just by kissing them? Just stop, show. Just... just stop.

And can we please remember that Section 31 is supposed to be a secret organization? Sisko didn't know about it. Archer didn't know about it. Kelvin Timeline Kirk didn't know about it. How the frak does everybody and their mother know about it on Discovery?

EDIT: I did get a really good laugh out of Pike's reaction to Ash's commbadge. [Big Grin]

Yeah, forba seekrit org, they're doing a shit job....unless they're supposed to be a distractionary splinter group.

"Y'know what would be cool? Let's make the ship look like she's sinking!"
"But it's space, my guy...?"
".....So?"

At least Stamets was a little shaken when Clem Fandango strutted on to the bridge.

I kniw Michelle Yeoh is loving getting to play the questionable bad guy, but I feel every time Emperor Pippa shows up, just her being there shits all over real Pippa, & that sucks. At least Pike's powers of prognostication work & he catches the hinky quotient.

So it's official: Tilly is DSC's Chekov, the character to conatantly fuck with & force to endure shit.

So is Toast of London quite big in the US? Because the sheer amount of non-Brits I see referring to Shazad Latif as Clem Fandango...

I also completely failed to remember him having been in Spooks, Black Mirror and Salting The Battlefield...

Toast of London is entire fucking unknown in the US. I haven't watched it yet myself past the occasional recording booth clip (although I really should), but the FB group page for the company in Nottinghamshire I buy my shirts from (lastexittonowhere.com, y'all!) has had people mention it often enough to where that's what I call him. I also now respond to my pushy soccer-mom guinea pig loudly wheeking at me with, "Yes, I can hear you, Clem Fandango!"

When we visited the ancient theatre at Epidaurus last summer, I stood in the central audio sweet spot and whispered to my eldest (halfway up the steps) "Hello, Steven? This is Clem Fandango. Can you hear me, Steven?" She could, but not having seen the show had no idea what I was on about.
