Yea, I'd probably watch but it is very low on the 'to watch list' and about where that Sigourney Weaver spoof space movie sits. What was it called, ah yes, Galaxy Quest (1999) a movie I have never watched through....

And thanks for ...

Apparently the popularity of Star Trek on Netflix is what prompted CBS all access to talk about a new show, when Netflix got wind of this they paid for the entire production budget.

I think CBS is going to be the only broadcaster in the US though.

let's see: faux meaning-of-life philosophising, over-emotional acting, breathy dialogue, cartoony sfx

looks like a winner :up:

My 1st impressions are very good, the 1st ep had me grinning from start to finish. It had some of that whimsy fun the originals had, Saru is a good addition and Burnham is excellent, she was carrying the whole 1st 2 eps and pulled it off imo with the storytellinng being on the mark. Everything was laid out with care by use of dialogue with some Starfleet thinking pulled straight from the originals that saved the day.

Considering Trek series have a habit of waiting atleast 2 or 3 seasons before finding their footing then this is defo one of the better premieres for me.

BUT, when I was watching the 2nd ep the artistic design started to become quite jaring to me, I can see it grating on a few hardcore trekkies. I knew with Kurtzman on board it was going to have a different look but it does have a completely different feel to anything that has come before. Lens flare, sparkly costumes, shakey cam, lots and lots of colour with the Vulcan institute looking almost like Tron and the Klingons ?, well I hope they get explained. Kol looked more like a traditional Klingon which is one of the houses we seen in the successors.

That bucket head robot thing was shite too.

Overall I very much enjoyed it and hope it spawns more of the same. Unsure what newcomers think of the overall design but for people who have grew up with the series it's gonna take some getting used to.

It’s a shame it’s only available on the CBS streaming service for a monthly fee. They’re gonna lose a ton of viewers because of that, and it’ll ultimately kill it. Big mistake...

Well, if it wasn't for CBS all access there wouldn't have been a new Trek, CBS TV have no interest in making a new ST series because it doesn't work on the small screen anymore, apparently.

CBS all access though, it really depends on if they're using this is a marketing vessel (like Grand Tour for prime) or wether it will actually be rated on viewers, if it's viewers then the show was dead before it started and I'd be amazed if the CBS internet boffins didn't already know this.

Also need to consider that the show, thanks to Netflix, had already made a profit before filming even started. I'd be willing to bet that it'll end up Netflix in the US within the year n all.

They should've transitioned to from Klingon to English in the dialog also. I appreciate the authenticity but jfc it felt painful listening to something that takes 5x longer to speak with little or no detectable inflection.

I honestly haven’t pirated anything in over a decade. But I also haven’t had a reason to. If I want a game or film/tv show, I just buy it. :shrug:

But I ain’t buying CBS All Access just for Star Trek. I ain’t even a Star Trek fan...

The only thing worth watching on CBS all access is the other star trek series and those are on netflix already..

The problem is the price, especially when you consider other services provide way better value. Seems daft to have a price point comparable to Netfix and having nowhere near the catalogue. Drop the price until you can compete, seems simple. If I were Xeros id wait for the season to be released then take out a 1 month sub if it doesnt arrive on Netflix ?.

The good news is that it was the most watched non sports event for the day, 10 million viewers and all access are saying it broke monthly, weekly and daily records for new sign ups, which pleases me :)

Way too much instagram filter. And there’s no need to rebrand the Klingons but I’ve bought into it so far.

Been a big fan of TNG, DS9 and Voyager but so far I'm kinda disappointed with this new series.

I've mentioned The Expanse before. It had me hooked within half an episode. ST:D, not so much. I think that's mostly due to needing to adjust to the new style of everything, continually thinking how stuff isn't like what it should be. The Expanse has the advantage of being a blank slate.

What's more is that the three aforementioned series had a very distinct utopian feel about them. Dangers were rarely as immediate as "oh no I'll crash into these asteroids" only to be resolved 30 seconds later. The interiors of the Enterprise and Voyager looked like cosy, comfortable places. Even Deep Space Nine had the appeal of a friendly market street. In ST:D everything looks hard and sterile. There's proverbial darkness in a lot of places (most repulsively the judge/council scene in the end with the spotlight and the darkened faces) and the Klingons are portrayed like monsters rather than a proud warrior race.
All these things make the new series fall in line with what most scifii series do (even The Expanse). There's always a very obvious dark side to humanity which results in struggles against clichéd evil. ST was always unique in that it didn't resort to that sort of thing. Mankind was always united and a pure form of good. You might argue that this is boring but to me, that's one of the things that sets star trek apart and that actually makes it interesting rather than boring, because it evades a slew of clichés.
