Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2, Episode 13: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 1
For episode 38 of The Star Trek Discovery Podcast, Ruthie and I discuss Season 2 Episode 13 of Star Trek: Discovery, which is titled, Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 1. This episode was written by Michelle Paradise & Jenny Lumet & Alex Kurtzman, and it was directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi. All are either co-executive producers or executive producers. Jenny Lumet & Alex Kurtzman co-wrote the first Short Trek, Runaway, and Michelle Paradise has been promoted to co-showrunner for Season 3 along with Kurtzman. This episode is part one of a two-part finale.
Discussion on Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 1 begins at 6:04…
We begin the podcast with a little feedback about our previous episode, covering S2E12 Through the Valley of Shadows. We get into this episode 6 minutes 4 seconds into the podcast.
We have been blessed yet again with pics chosen by Fred from The Netherlands, including the cover image. We let Fred’s pics do the talking for us!
Before you look at pics from Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 1…
We both loved this episode, and it was probably one of the best ones of the series. That said, though we rated it highly, it does have flaws, such as where you see the seams where they stretched it from a one-parter to a two-parter, but this is one where the episode is greater than the sum of its parts. We’ll be back next week with our next episode on the season finale. As always, your feedback is essential to this podcast! We’ve had a short feedback deadline most weeks this season.
We’ll cover more feedback from S2E13 Such Sweet Sorrow, so do not hesitate to send in your feedback if you miss the deadline. For Star Trek: Discovery S2E14, which is titled Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2 (we think that’s the title) the deadline to get in your feedback is Friday, April 19, 2019, at 6 PM Eastern/5 PM Central or 10 PM UTC. You can submit feedback via the Feedback page, Facebook Group, Twitter, you can email startrekgsm at gmail dot com, or call the voicemail at (216) 236-5449 and leave us a message there. Make sure to mention you’re calling The Star Trek Discovery Podcast when you call. We would like to keep our episodes down to a more reasonable podcast length. To help with this, we’d like you to focus on a few key points, rather than discussing everything about the episode. If submitting a voicemail, please try to keep your calls to 4 minutes or less, with an absolute maximum of 5 minutes. We would like to keep our episodes under 2 hours! Please help with that!
