Star Trek: Lower Decks - Season One

★★★★☆

Hilarious self-parody of TNG-era Star Trek. Funny on its own, but even better if you know the shows it’s riffing on. Great as a diversion or as a palette cleanser after watching something more serious.

The last couple of episodes in the season aren’t quite as good because they try to do Big Changes™ and continuity instead of playing to its strengths: the absurdity of the situation and the way the characters play off each other.
