Holy shit, looks surprisingly high budget.

We've come a long way from the TNG bluescreen planets.

Why does every show need a companion talk show now? Good for the diehards that want it, but I can't stand these things.

Talk shows centered around tv shows are fucking lame.

I love the addition of behind the scenes talks with the cast and crew. It's there for people who want to jump in and for people who don't enjoy that stuff, they're not missing out on anything critical.

I'm sure it's cheap and pulls in decent ratings so it makes them tons of money.

The format is bad, and they run too long as well. If they were more like a director's commentary clocking in at 10 minutes or so, they'd be fine. As is, they're bloated, fan-servicey stuff that is usually cringe-worthy.

Unless they change the format, I won't.

Visually, those are some great looking screenshots and I really like the cast


... but, I'm still really put off by the show taking place in just about the most boring conceivable timeline in the Trek universe. I'm not sure I'll be able to ever get over that, even if the show is really good, because I'll want this creative team tackling a timeline that interests me more.

Sounds like I'll have to wait until it's out on Blu-Ray then. I cut the cord ages ago.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna have to wait until the whole thing finishes airing, and just buy a single month of CBS to binge it. No way I'm paying for 4-5 months of that shit.

A post-game genre talkshow featuring its host consistently nitpicking the female leads and the writing staff in general for not doing what he would (poorly) do might be an interesting direction to take these things.

It's fucking amazing. Much better than seasons 6 or 7 of TGW. Feels like season 5, in a good way.

Maybe wait until Discovery goes up for it?
