6 Thoughts on Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 1 (Review)

I am not a classic Trekkie. I can count the number of pre-Discovery Star Trek episodes I’ve seen on one hand. It simply wasn’t my thing when I was growing up — though I’ve come to believe I probably would have loved the shows. I can’t rewrite the past and I don’t really have an interest in watching the classic shows in this day and age…so instead, I watched and loved Star Trek: Lower Decks!

TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!

I’ve seen both seasons of Star Trek: Discovery and have enjoyed that show well enough. I watched Picard and don’t think very much of it. I enjoyed all the J.J. Abrams movies. But man, Lower Decks is the bee’s knees. Lower Decks is my Star Trek now. It’s smartly written, it’s legitimately funny and it’s clearly made by Star Trek fans for Star Trek fans. And that’s pretty neat! So join me after the jump for my review of the first season of Star Trek: Lower Decks!

Expect FULL SPOILERS for the first season of Lower Decks.

Also, happy 4,000th post for Henchman-4-Hire!

The Invincible Cartoon is On the Way!

The comic book Invincible is getting a cartoon next year on Amazon Prime. And it looks pretty good!

I only recently just started reading Invincible the comic. I bought all three giant compendiums and have completed the first one. It’s a fun comic. So far, it’s not groundbreaking or truly amazing. It’s just a solid, enjoyable, well-crafted superhero adventure. Should make for a great cartoon!


How The Mandalorian Should Have Ended

The How It Should Have Ended gang has gone above and beyond for the first season of The Mandalorian, giving us alternate endings for all 8 episodes! Let’s give it up to these creative so-and-so’s!

Pretty funny stuff. And great animation, as always! They drew a glorious looking Mando.

Now we just have to sit back and wait another couple of weeks for the new season! Woohoo!


6 Things I Want to See in the Ms. Marvel TV Show

After a long wait and what was no doubt a lengthy audition process, Marvel Studios has cast Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan for the upcoming Ms. Marvel TV show on Disney+! This is exciting news because I am a huge Ms. Marvel fan and am very much looking forward to this show.

Theoretically arriving someday…

As has been pointed out, this is Vellani’s first major Hollywood role, so we don’t really know how she’s going to pan out as an actor — but I have 110% faith in the Marvel casting process. They haven’t failed us yet. No other casting decisions have been released online yet, but I’ve seen that the show is looking to bring in most of Kamala’s supporting cast from the comics. So there are no individual characters I hope they include because I’m confident they will include all the important ones. So this list is just some fun speculation of other things I’d like to see, like storyline ideas, villains or little details here or there.

Join me after the jump for ideas I’d like to see in the upcoming Ms. Marvel TV show! And feel free to share your own hopes, dreams and ideas in the comments!

Firefly Still Stings

I still love the show Firefly. I haven’t watched it in a while, so maybe it really shows it’s age, but it was a great show and it’s early cancellation still stings. It also hearts when Honest Trailers mocks the show!

Oh, my beloved Firefly…you don’t deserve any of that. But I can’t say that Honest Trailers wasn’t honest. Life is harsh.

Meanwhile, in case you’re looking for new YouTube to blindly watch, I stumbled upon one of those “reaction” YouTubers a couple weeks ago. There’s a million of them, but I like the charm of this Natalie Gold person I found. And she recently started a “First Time Watching” marathon of Firefly episodes.

She’s got a bunch of other videos, watching movies and shows for the first time. She’s only a couple months into her new career as a YouTube reactor. So again, if you’re looking for something new to watch on YouTube, Natalie Gold is mildly recommended.
