I watch first, then I go on Twitter. If I start tweeting/reading tweets in the middle of watching, it means I can just as well turn it off, because I'm appaprently bored or distracted. That's a sign it's not working for me...:bag:

Yea - I was like WTF! I think they are just messing with us. They probably got a lot of emails and saw the bring back Lorca tweets.

Well. From those tweets to their ears. Are you hearing us, executive producer and writers????????

How does Jason do it EVERY TIME—make us LOVE the villain???? :adore

And now, it's not just us. The Bring Back Lorca movement didn't begin here. Though we felt it in our hearts, we didn't get vocal about it.

BRING BACK LORCA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Am I missing something? When did someone introduce Capt. Lucius Malfoy...? :scratch

I'm totally on board for this, but.... who/when/where?

Sorry, thunder. It was in the After Trek segment for the season finale. Exec. Prod. Alex Kurtzmen (sp?) was asked who was going to be the next captain of the Discovery, and that was his answer.

Also, below is a recap (spoilers) of the season finale:

Here's some speculation about season 2:

And, this is a bitch-and-moan session from AVClub. There are some things they like, tho' :D :

And, finally, the H'wood Reporter has more about season 1, as well as, the prosthetics that make one a Klingon.

Oh, I see. Thanks for the clarification. :D

After Trek isn't available on Norwegian Netflix until a couple of days. The need to put on subtitles first. :roll: I don't know why they don't just release it, and then people who need subtitles can watch it later... :cafe

It looked like to be they were building it up to be a huge surprise in the second season, and not revealing it in the episode. I assume it was a joke if they said it on After Trek... But what do I know...? :mrgreen:

The second article felt like they did not watch After Trek. But I certainly agree with their opinion of bringing Jason Isaacs back ... but I'm not biased in any way.....

I'm not sure I'll see the second season if they won't bring Lorca back... Sorry... :bag:
I think it was quite decent, though. But if the show is only decent, it will be better with Jason in it...

The producers and show runners seemed to like surprises - so if they do bring him back as a regular or in a limited story arc I suspect they will keep it a secret.

Yes, probably. But Reddit will know... :mrgreen:

It's on Netflix for me, so I don't need any extra subscription. If they bring Lorca back, I will watch... if not... don't think I'll bother.

More speculation about Prime Lorca. (Sounds like a tender cut of meat.)

Well the author was speculating a lot! And since the article stated that Spock is Burnham’s half brother- i’d question what that person knows or understands. Burnham is adopted not a half sibling.

I do agree we may see MU Phillipa or Prime Gabriel- but I don’t think that is a given.

I do hope we get to see Capt Lorca again. Sure wish the Federation would change the uniform to leather and gold! :D
