I’m feeling a bit wiped out by the tedium of posting chapters of my book, Alias Adam (FOR FREE), so I’m going to try getting by with mentioning Star Trek: Discovery, which aired last night with its first episode. I understand that all subsequent episodes are on CBS All Access (Netflix internationally). I’m mentioning it because Doug Jones, my youngest brother, plays Lieutenant Saru, the alien science officer (obviously to the left in the above picture).
I see no need to review the first episode since it is being reviewed to death on a great many other sites. I just want to mention that I’m proud of my brother and excited by the potential of this series. The special effects are good, the franchise storied, and the cast diverse. I don’t expect it to be anything less than a cultural hit.
For another post on Doug, check my Family Mythology category in the black strip on the left. I expect to post about him again under that category as well.
In summary, WATCH MY BROTHER! You may go now.
