Critic reviews for Choose Your Pain
So far, the journey is an interesting one, and we're still on board, especially given the way in which Discovery keeps surprising us week after week.
Okay, what was with that ending of the latest Star Trek: Discovery episode? Did "Choose Your Pain" turn Star Trek into a horror show?
Another exciting episode that perhaps moves too fast for its own good at times. But these characters and this cast have gelled very quickly and this brave, new Star Trek continues to impress.
Mudd offered this: "They always say confession is good for the soul, too back none of us have one anymore." I cannot help but think that line continues the subtext that the show's creators and writers have set forth comparing their future to the present.
Presenting new sides to its flawed characters has worked in the favor of Discovery, which is fitting.
