Star Trek: Lower Decks is Coming Back!
I am a huge fan of Star Trek: Lower Decks. I’ve never been a big Trekkie. It just wasn’t my thing growing up. But I’ve watched a lot of modern Trek stuff and Lower Decks is my favorite. It’s a brilliant show with great characters, a great sense of humor and a real love of all things Trek. It’s great for me because I can enjoy the jokes on the show and then look them up online to get the deeper meaning.
I can’t wait for season 3. The first two seasons were friggin’ perfect, and more of this show is going to be a real treat. I want a ton of seasons! I want a full, class Star Trek show length amount! Six seasons and a movie! And we also learned at Comic-Con that Lower Decks is going to crossover with Strange New Worlds. I haven’t watched that yet but am considering it. And, for some reason, they won’t have the voice actors play the characters in live action, even though they look perfect for the live action roles. Weird choice.
But whatever, I’ll take weird choices. Star Trek: Lower Decks arrives on Paramount+ on Aug. 25! Just gotta wait another month!
There’s Gonna Be More Beavis and Butt-Head
We knew this was coming, and now we’ve got a trailer! The new movie, Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, came out a couple of weeks ago and it was a hoot! Maybe not as good as the good old days, but nonetheless quite a funny and enjoyable film. And that’s going to lead into a whole new revival series this fall.
Bring it on! We have a million things to watch these days, so why not more Beavis and Butt-Head straight from Mike Judge? Close Enough just got cancelled. And the new season of Tuca & Bertie arrived with so little fanfare that I might forget to watch it. There’s so much stuff! So I’ll gladly take more Beavis and Butt-Head!
The new show starts on Aug. 4 on Paramount+.
Halo TV Show Incoming
The Halo TV show debuts on Paramount+ this week and I’m pretty excited. I know there are a lot of naysayers across the internet right now, but I think it looks good! I just want to see what they manage to pull off, with high hopes for some quality television.
I don’t see what the problem is with these trailers. I think the CGI looks good. I’ll grant you that I’m no master of the Halo games or lore, so I’m not at all bothered by the show going in their own direction storywise. I just wanna see a cool sci-fi show with the recognizable Master Chief at the center. I’m excited to see what happens.
Halo kicks off on March 25.
A Live Action Halo TV Show is Actually Happening
Halo is one of those products that has been in some sort of live action development for a million years. But we eventually got that Warcraft movie…and that Y: The Last Man TV show…and both of them bombed. But let us get our hopes up for Halo! On Paramount+!
I think it looks great! I’m not a particular Halo fan. I’ve played a couple of the games, back when I owned an X-Box. But it was never my go-to console, and Halo is not my go-to game. But I am always looking for fun new TV shows to watch. And I think this show looks awesome. The CGI looks good, Master Chief looks good, I’m always eager for more Bokeem Woodbine. Bring on Halo TV!
Halo debuts on Paramount+ on March 24.
More Star Trek: Lower Decks is Coming!
I have never been a Star Trek guy…until last year, when the cartoon Lower Decks debuted and I was instantly in love! This is the Star Trek for me. Funny, well-written, awesome in all the right ways and full of smart, well-used references. I would literally watch an episode and then go online to learn what all the references were, I was that in love with the show.
And it’s coming back for a second season!
I cannot wait. This show is damn good, and I hope it gets a bajillion seasons. And then I hope it gets some live action crossovers somehow with other Trek media. Paramount is putting out a ton of Star Trek content these days, and Lower Decks is the only one that’s any good. In my opinion.
Season two of Star Trek: Lower Decks arrives on Aug. 12!
