Any opinions here on ST: Discovery? I have heard nothing but hate regarding this series so on a lark I binged watched the whole first season during a CBS All Access free weekend and liked it quite a bit. In fact, what I have seen thus far makes the show, IMO, superior to all the ST series with the exception of TOS. 

I believe the stories and writing are much better, more adult driven (kill Wesley, Nog, and Neelix), and just better in general. However what I really like are the Klingons and how they are portrayed. In the other ST shows they are simply violent buffoons, complete idiots who could never have built a small town much less an empire. In Discovery they have nuance, they have structure like every other race and not everyone is a psycho warrior. They even give a rational reason for why the Klingons are dicks not unlike our own human history (they are simply trying to unite their society and need a scapegoat as a focus to such an end).

So, what ya all think???

No, you're not alone - I really enjoy "Discovery". I wish to hell they would just show it on TV on CBS proper, but I guess they want to be in vogue... (I waited until it came out on BluRay to watch the whole series beyond the first show - if there is anyone on the fence about buying it, I do recommend the BluRay. The effects and picture quality are stunning.)

After TNG, I didn't like any of the subsequent ST series. Of course, for me, the original ST is the gold standard (in fact, right now, I am in the middle of my yearly ritual of watching all three series, from the first show of Season 1 to the last show of Season 3 consecutively - I just began Season 3 last night - Spock just got his brain back, for those in the know...).

What I like about Discovery is that it has real grit to it: it's dark. I also think that's one of the reasons that they are doing streaming only, i.e., they can get away with stuff on a streaming format that a traditional TV show might shy away from. (I guess interspecies mating was one of the tipping points.) Anyway, a good storyline and characters who are interesting are the two main selling points. The plot twist near the end of the series I was not expecting at all - that always makes for good viewing.

I will re-watch the series after I end my January ritual. I guess I'll have to wait until the end of the year to get the season 2 BluRay set - but, I will definitely get it!
