Re: PIC S1: Remembrance

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Vastly superior to DSC (which i'll probably watch S3 of anyway just because...)

Daj/Isa Briones initially seems a far superior actor to pretty much any of the DSC main characters (except maybe Saru and i'm not including Pike since he's not really a main) - although that's a little harsh on the actors since they're given pretty much nothing to do except spout technobabble or stare at greenscreen/cgi.

Comparisons asides this almost had the cosy feeling TNG had in a lot of way to me but with a slightly darker edge (DS9) style without being delierately gritty.

I haven't been smashed hard in the face with a diversity spade yet, if it was there then good, it should be natural and ridiculously forced as in some Netflix shows.

Very promising start. 3.5 out of 4 for me. Not 4 due to a couple of jarring moments. Like someone else commented.. It seems little silly that romulans assassins can beam in and our with weapons around a major Star Fleet facility and nothing is on the security feeds or records. Daj exploded without leveling a molecule around to analyse - this may be explained later though however: Section 31 cover-up etc.

Hard to rate these really since they're not longer really serialised like TNG. I was dumbly expecting the whole series to drop on the 24th for some reason. I should pay more attention.

Always nice to see more good sci-fi about anyway. Still a little thin on the ground (I devoured The Expanse too fast).

Re: DSC S2: The Red Angel

I realise Michael is the "hero" of the show but she does seem to get away with pretty much anything. Ok she's sort of redeemed herself from mutiny. Starfleet are very forgiving and she did save the day in season 1.

But the scene with Leland when he was (for no reason I can work out) telling her about her parents... she punched him in the face a couple of times. I realise section 31 is shadey etc but it's part of Star Fleet isn't it? She punched a captain (I believe that's his rank). Surely that's another court martial.

(Ignoring the amount of times everyone completely disobeys Pike with no repercussions at all)

Doesn't seem very military at all. Enterprise which is set before Discovery had an actual chain of command at least. Even if Archer was a complete idiot sometimes people still obeyed him.

Just something that bugs me about Discovery.

Personally I thought this episode was a complete mess and I was actually bored which is rare for Discovery since it's so high speed.
