Looks like the Kelvin Timeline is dead
Well, the 3rd season of Twin Peaks had gone through publicly bumpy negotations that included Lynch throwing in the towel at one point, but it happened in the end:
They’ll work something out - hopefully with the side effect of scaling the budget down to where it’ll be possible to make it back this time around?
Ethan Peck is the new Spock for Discovery season 2.
Ugh. Spock shouldn’t be on that show. I saw the trailer, and the way they worded “It all leads to Spock!!!” or something like that was ridiculous. Spock was literally just a guy in the original show. A conflicted, important Starfleet guy, but still just a guy.
It still took them longer than I expected to play the ‘Chosen One’ card this explicitly. Pretty much a decade into the Kelvin reboot movies, though those have already been plotted out in that manner to a large extent (Kirk is destined to be the captain, his friendship with Spock is destined to happen etc - no matter how contrived both end up being).
