3/5 74% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Into the Forest I Go (TV Episode) Twenty frakkin minutes. Why hadn't they put their little Federation thinking caps on prior to this? It makes zero sense.‐ Empire Magazine

5/5 94% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (TV Episode) Star Trek Discovery should not let staff writer Kirsten Beyer go. Cutting her teeth in the final frontier on a series of Voyager novels, her teleplay for Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum is without a doubt Discovery's strongest episode to date. ‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 100% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad (TV Episode) There's a sense that as Discovery continues to define itself, it's seemingly moving back in the direction of more conventional sci-fi storytelling, and that would be unfortunate.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 78% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Lethe (TV Episode) Despite the fact that there is a "bottle show" quality to this episode... there is some great character development here.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 76% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Choose Your Pain (TV Episode) Although Discovery had gotten itself into a pretty good groove with episodes three and four, the same can't be said for the fifth.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 80% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry (TV Episode) Nice bits between the characters: Lorca is making demands of Stamets and the drive, and Stamets gives back as good as he gets, resulting in a subtle smile from Saru.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 91% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Context Is for Kings (TV Episode) ... there is an intriguing show here, but it's just a question of how much it really feels like, or more accurately represents, Trek.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 88% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Battle at the Binary Stars (TV Episode) ... it's what Star Trek is supposed to do: take modern society and put it through the prism of the genre.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 100% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - The Vulcan Hello (TV Episode) A solid start to the series, but it needs to distinguish itself if it hopes to grow an audience beyond the faithful.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 96% American Gods: Season 1 - Head Full of Snow (TV Episode) American Gods already stands as one of the more unique storytelling vehicles on television, with an A-story that is moving ever forward, but an anthological element that proves itself every bit as engrossing.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 100% Supergirl: Season 2 (TV, 2016-2017) The effects and fight sequences continue to impress, expanding the boundaries of what can be accomplished for television.‐ Empire Magazine

60% Star Trek: Voyager: Season 7 (TV, 2000-2001) [Endgmae is] no All Good Things, but it wraps things up well and gives Kate Mulgrew a real chance to shine in dual roles.‐ Empire Magazine

100% Star Trek: Voyager: Season 4 (TV, 1997-1998) Despite being a transparent attempt to 'sex up' the show, it was a tremendous introduction for the character and, more importantly, gave Voyager a much-needed kick up the arse in terms of both drama and conflict.‐ Empire Magazine

93% Star Trek: Voyager: Season 1 (TV, 1995) Executive producer Brannon Braga once said that Voyager should be The X-Files of space, and [Phage] shows it meeting that potential.‐ Empire Magazine

100% Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 7 (TV, 1998-1999) It's an exciting and moving close to a series that still had so much life left in it. Major arcs are brought to an end and entirely new ones are begun, but the most important thing is that the show left on its own terms and in its own way‐ Empire Magazine

100% Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Season 4 (TV, 1995-1996) Michael Dorn joins the show as TNG's Worf and Avery Brooks comes to life like never before as Sisko after he shaves his head and grows a goatee.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 93% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Eschewing the popcorn entertainment approach taken with most of the films (Captain America: The Winter Soldier notwithstanding), this is an up close look at the dark side of superheroics.‐ Empire Magazine
