I don't understand the hate for Discovery. I enjoyed season 1, and season 2 started off much the same.

I enjoyed Discovery but it seemed a bit daft to have this amazing jump tech that existed years before the more modern series that has somehow just been forgotten about.

Can’t decide whether Disco or STD is the better abbreviation.

Pfft, the Internet hates Event Horizon so the Internet doesn't get a fucking opinion any more.

I like Discovery, but I wish it paid a bit more attention to series continuity, and I wish they sprinkled in a few more classic trek style episodes with one off self contained stories rooted in an ideological or philosophical problem.

I hope they dial back the flashy action and galaxy-ending stakes to allow for a broader range of stories to be told.

It's an interesting take on Trek, but I think there's a happy medium to be found between where Discovery has been so far and something like TNG/DS9.

Yeah I really enjoyed it. It struck me that it looks pretty fucking good for TV sci-fi too. I don't know if they've spent a bit more or if I just didn't notice on the last series but really top drawer stuff.

It definitely seems like they have cranked up the budget for this season.

First two episodes were decent, and a good set up for the rest of the series.
