Critic Reviews for The Wolf Inside

"The Wolf Inside" was a compelling tale, making the best argument possible for Discovery spending multiple episodes of its first season in the Mirror Universe.

If you're one who enjoys action, mystery, tension, a little bit of drama and constantly saying "What the...." at the events happening on the screen, this show is for you.

One thing I'm really appreciating is that the Mirror Universe in Star Trek: Discovery has a purpose beyond "let's see how different we can make things."

The mirror verse is so stressful! I sweated throughout the entirety of the latest Star Trek: Discovery episode, "The Wolf Inside."

I'm into where Discovery is going now, and I'm glad the show is deepening its exploration of the Mirror Universe.

Happily, episode 11, The Wolf Inside, doesn't let up the pace and while it swaps action for character revelations, it's no less thrilling because of it.

Jan 16, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's a lot of ground for one episode to cover, and The Wolf Inside manages to cover it all in an impressively paced episode that manages to emphasize both action and the relationships it's built up.

So, this all may sound like there were some pretty dramatic developments, but it's hard to nail down precisely why 'The Wolf Inside' doesn't work.

Jan 17, 2018 | Full Review…

"The Wolf Inside" was messy, confusing, and often thrilling - sort of like the Terran-dominated alternate universe in which the show's titular crew find themselves stranded.

Jan 17, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Still, judged on its own merits, "The Wolf Inside" has a fair amount going for it, including strong performances, considerable style, and the usual lightning fast pace.

Like with so much of the Discovery maiden voyage, the ambition and ideas are interesting, but the execution often leaves much to be desired.

Yes, they essentially ran with four DIFFERENT plot-lines but they OWNED them. I was never unclear as to what was going on.
