This was kind of a change of pace after last week’s terrific episode. It’s clearly the calm before the mid-season break storm, but it was still underwhelming. There was some great character development with Saru and that’s about it.
Fair Warning: This episode contained so many things that I adore, that judging it objectively isn’t something I’m even going to attempt. This is the episode that made me go from loving the show, to pestering people to watch it.┬
