3 Free Months Of CBS All-Access, Give Star Trek: Discovery A Watch

I play Star Trek Online and have been inflicted with cringe inducing snippets of dialogue from the show. I don't think I could bear to watch it, even for free.
It's funny how negative everyone here has been about Star Trek: Discovery. Elsewhere where I post, there are lively discussions about the show. It's rather unfortunate but I won't be mentioning the show anymore here.

Watched the first two episodes. Didn't like what happened with (character) and it seemed too action oriented. Does the mood change at all to become more intelligent (not the exact word I'm looking for, but more TOS and less Abrams'-y)?

Like I was hyped in that opening scene when the captain does the walking around bit, but then it kinda lost me asnothing else happening was like that.

I've started watching discovery and I'm still on the fence. The production values are good and it seems like it might get interesting but right now (episode 3) my main issue is the cast. The only character so far that's somewhat likeable is the captain.

Does it get better? Do annoying science guy and annoying roommate girl get better (or die)?

We do have a thread about Star Trek Discovery and we are discussing it there. A big reason for the negativity certainly is how the series ignores certain strengths of the franchise, seemingly lacks a science advisor (that the other series had and is important to make it somewhat consistent instead of fantasy in space) and how it focusses on too few characters of which some are specifically badly written (in particular, Wesley-Tilly and god-Michael). But there have also been positive postings, e.g. my own posting on last week's episode.
