For All Mankind Season 3 Episode 3 is the third instalment of the third season of a historical fantasy TV drama series streaming on Apple TV+. Created by Ronald D. Moore (Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Outlander), For All Mankind reimagines the space race of the 60s/70s as an alternate reality where the Soviet Union put a man on the moon before the USA. Season 3 picks up a decade after the events of season 2, meaning the setting is now 1992 – with a video montage that introduces us to this alternate milieu.

Strange New Worlds Season 1 Episode 8 Analysis

Strange New Worlds Season 1 Episode 8 is the eighth instalment of an American scifi space opera television drama created by Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman, and Jenny Lumet for the streaming service Paramount+. A spin-off of the Discovery series, Strange New Worlds features the USS Enterprise captained by Christopher Pike and set a decade before the events in the original Star Trek TV series.

THE ORVILLE IS A BAD STAR TREK RIPOFFTHE ORVILLE IS A BAD STAR TREK RIPOFF

The Orville

Season 3 of The Orville has been streaming recently on Hulu with “New Horizons” as its sub-title, for some reason. Regular visitors to PoP will be aware that we found that most of the two seasons of The Orville were very pale imitations of Star Trek and had no justification for its existence. However, it appears that the first episode of season 3 had received critical praise and thus we thought it appropriate to share what we think of the return of The Orville.
