Star Trek Discovery S04E07 Review

Star Trek Discovery S04E07 is the seventh episode of the fourth season of the scifi TV drama series streaming on Paramount+. The series had a mixed reception due to its perceived retconning of Star Trek canon, being set 10 years before the events in the original Star Trek TV series and by introducing Michael Burnham (as the sister of the iconic character, Mr. Spock). In season 3, the series transported the ship and its crew almost a century into the future, thereby (cleverly) avoiding any issue with Star Trek canon once and for all.

The Best Films of 2021

The Best Films of 2021 is based on the films that we have reviewed on Power of Pop in 2021. Most of these films were watched online, as visits to the cinema were hampered by the damned pandemic. Truth be told, overall, TV series were stronger than films in storytelling and characterisations and we will get to that particular list in a later post.

Invasion Season 1 Story Analysis

Invasion Season 1 is the first season of an American science fiction television series created by Simon Kinberg and David Weil. The series features a high concept premise but fails miserably in terms of plot and characterisation – poor execution truly let down the intriguing premise.
