Critic reviews for What's Past Is Prologue
Could we be looking at parallel universes and time travel in the first season of Discovery? If we weren't having such fun, we'd be getting whiplash.
I'm ready to see what happens, and yet I am in no way prepared to say goodbye to this show for months (possibly a year) until the second season.
This episode moves at a nice clip, with some great fights and acting. It's whenever anyone starts pontificating, reminding us that a lot of what's happening doesn't match up to the rest of the season, that it falls apart.
Everything seems to be coming together for Star Trek: Discovery plot-wise as we head into the final two episodes of the season.
This is a well-directed episode. I keep praising the show's pacing because it's one of the few things I feel like I can praise, but even while the overall narrative construction and sense of coherent world aren't great, the pacing here is good.
