Critic reviews for USS Callister
It raises some prescient, topical points about how men in power abuse their positions of authority.
What I liked most about "USS Callister," which makes for an exceptionally strong start to this new season, was the nasty, winking twist of its set-up.
It's too simple to say that "USS Callister" is the hour of television we needed at the end of 2017. But it certainly was quite welcome.
It's a provocation to bad fans (of which Black Mirror may have a few)-a male fantasy that gets disrupted by women and people of color-that is also very funny, very well-plotted, and questions and celebrates its Trekkian source material with great wit.
The performances in this episode are some of the best in the series as well. Milioti finally gets a role worthy of her talents.
