Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 1 & 2: The Vulcan Hello and Battle at the Binary Stars Reviews

Star Trek finally returns to the small screen after a twelve year (yes it’s really been that long!) absence.

Landline – The Myth of Monogamy (Guest Review)

Based on the trailers it feels like a dysfunctional family film meets coming of age comedy set in the 90s. While it has aspects of both, it never really hits its mark. Instead, the story focuses on infidelity and gently telling the audience that monogamy is but a myth.
