ok a tad dissapointed that there is only 1 episode per week.

 

 

Oh Boy! What an episode though! This is not Discovery, this is the real thing and i am now salivating at the thought of more. So far we have a story set up, with a small but interesting twist, but the forward potential could be huge and i hope to god that it is not pooched or buggered up in any way.

It seems to remain true to what i still feel is the "Real" Star Trek universe, not any of the poor alterate cousins, to the point that i couldnt get past episode 5 of discovery as it just felt wrong.

This just feels right so far. There is a feel from critics and "Woke" people that this is a show that has severe leanings towards the political left and "Woke" beliefs (no, i have no fucking idea what woke is supposed to mean, its just more youngster jargon for being a self centered, hypocritical tosspot as far as i can work out) but if you take it for what it actually is, which is a continuation of the life story of Jean Luc Picard, then, yes this ticks all the damn boxes.

Comments that it does not match the intensity and narrative pace of Star Trek TNG are spot on though, but then this would appear so far to have an pre planned overaching story rather than being a series of loosely linked stand alone episodes, although its hard to define how well that will work after only one episode.

I for one, will be awaiting episode 2 with eager anticipation, but then i grew up when you waited for 1 episode every week, unlike my kids who were all like "is there only one episode in the season", "This is pants, why do i have to wait till next week ?" and i will enjoy it that much more BECAUSE i have to wait, it will give me a reason to come home every friday. I will edit and update this as the further episode are aired.

I will not however post spoilers.

I must say that I am very disappointed.

Firstly because from start to finish, Patrich Stewart seems misplaced. Every one else is a mediocre actor at best. Seemingly chosen based on their race or looks alone. The disconnect is so profound that I, off the top of my head, can't think of any thing worse in recent times.

Secondly because I was led to believe that a full season would be available @Sammerkand looking at you! Now I am siting here with a pound of candy and half a bucket of icecream...

i also thought thw whole season would be available, but to be honest no where said it would, but its odd that this is weekly when all other shows recently, such as good omens, have been released in one lump.

 

Please accept my humblest apologies for the information that was incorrect.

I do however disagree with your review, however i also understand that this was episode one and i am ever hopeful that it will live up to its potential.

Has some promise.I mean,it's still Start Trek, so it's always gonna be mediocre at it's core, but Stewart with his Shakespearian presence is of course always pretty damn cool.

It's slower and more old fashioned than Discovery but I am sure it will provide some entertainment over the season!

Gonna wait till the first 3 episodes are availlable, binge and then take em weekly. Been doing that even with shows that are released fully. First episodes are usually messy. 😕 So best to watch first two/three to get a bigger picture. And after that I try to spread it out to enjoy it a bit longer and really enjoy an episode more. hehe

 

Having said that, I CANT WAIT! :D

Well, then it certainly is no different from Star Trek TNG ;)

Other then that, i'm also quite impressed with this series up till now. Plot seems really interesting and the slow pace reminds me a lot of the good old days. Cant wait for the rest, this is how Star Trek should be. Not that turd they called Discovery.
