Re: DSC S2: If Memory Serves

I have followed Jammer for years, and respect his opinion greatly. He is my favorite Trek reviewer. I have tried three times with Discovery, each time canceling my CBS subscription before the trial expires. I actually love The Cage so I was intrigued. I restarted my subscription, and canceled it again at the episode's conclusion.

This is what a 4/4 episode is now? Lens flare? Dutch tilts? Wall to wall scoring that manages to be EVEN MORE boring than late era TNG? Pathetic fan service? Editing that made me think of the theatrical release of Legend? Robotic acting (90's era Trek seems positively radiant compared to this im that department)? I thought I was watching Battlefield Earth. And as a gay man myself, the melodramatic gay subplot made me sick. And how in the hell is Pike one of the "great" captains now? Worse than Archer. This is truly Trek for the consumer era, in the same way the worst episodes of Berman-era Trek were. But this has no heart.

I guess I'll just be "that guy" and stick to my DS9 reruns. At least they didn't have Spock.
