Anybody else watch Star Trek: Discovery? I’m not a huge Star Trek guy, I like it okay though. I thought this new series was pretty interesting. It seems to have an over-arching storyline that goes places you wouldn’t expect a new Star Trek series to go. It’s too early to really decide whether I like it but the first two episodes are very well done.
It’s on Netflix if anybody’s interested.
There’s also The Orville which seems to be a Star Trek-clone. It has some quirky humor in it but I find the social commentary in it poorly handled and the jokes aren’t fast enough for it to be considered an outright parody. I’ll give it a chance to improve. Perhaps the Galaxy Quest show that’s in production will be better.
