07. She’s Like A Little Yo-Yo! (Disco 2.04)

This week, we discuss season 2, episode four of Star Trek: Discovery, and, along the way…

  • wanky titles (and why we love them)
  • serialised versus episodic storytelling
  • the endless Search for Spock
  • the Prime Directive
  • the Neville Longbottom of Discovery
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • Saru’s quarters
  • and we seriously question Captain Pike’s priorities

Also, an apology from Liz: I had a mild cold when we recorded, and though I’ve edited out all the nose-blowing, I just had a lot of trouble … expressing … words. Also, “Eurydice” is a verb now. 

A screencap from Neon Genesis Evangelion which closely resembles the Red Angel suit
When Anika said the Red Angel resembles a figure in Neon Genesis Evangelion, she isn’t kidding!
