Screener Squad: Star Trek Discovery – Season 3

Star Trek Discovery - Season 3 Review


The Star Trek show that started as one of the earliest in the timeline prequels, becomes decidedly the show going forward the furthest in the timeline. Discovery ends up 1000 years in the future and has to sort out what’s going on, how things have changed, why Starfleet seems to have disappeared, why no one seems to do the warp drive thing anymore, who is this big handsome hunky guy for Michael to love on, and more. Parsing the overload of new stuff are three huge Trek dorks and one guy who just likes to watch the world burn. Listen to Chris, Dogget, TC, and Marco break down for you what worked, what didn’t, and what you may have missed that foretells what is to come. Forgive us, for this is not only a spoiler review, but a much longer than usual one. You should have seen all the stuff that got cut out! (you can, in the link right below this if you’re a subscriber)

**This review comes in a MUCH MUCH longer, uncut, video version for TIME LORD subscribers and above right here**

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal” turned into a full-time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

Danny Dogget (Screener Squad)

Hey persons, it’s your favorite canine Dogget! As many of you know, I don’t identify as a critic as much as a classy shock jock. That being said, I do my best to give all of you a well-balanced review filled with my true opinions and hopefully a few laughs. You can occasionally find me on other persons podcast like Mission Impodible (that’ll be 10 dollars Nathan). For the most part, you can find me doing reviews on
