Also, could we also travel to the universe where there is nothing but shrimp?

Yum.

Wilson Cruz discussed this episode on the After Trek show.  He most certainly does not see this as a bury your gays episode and he says that his favorite acting scene in his entire career is yet to come in this season.

I continue being conflicted about the show.

I want to like it so much, I do like the core concepts and most of the the cast (Hello to Jason Isaacs!), but I just don't really enjoy the episodes and what's going on.

It probably doesn't help that the plot feels so, dunno, "written". It doesn't flow naturally, things just happen because that is what was decided to happen by the creators.

Also, it is jarring that I just cannot care about Tyler, can't believe in that whole romance. I don't know why they are putting so much attention to this artificial, contrived nonsense instead of developing much more interesting relationships.
