FYI, I was highly skeptical of ST: Discovery. But after the first 3-4 episodes, I fell in love with it. Both season 1 and 2 are excellent. The writing is so good and very respectful to the Star Trek lore (no contradictions, the story telling all works out).
I finally finished the second season of Discovery and it was almost as good as the first. The second to last episode was a little ‘mushy’ for my liking but I liked how it linked in with the original Kirk stories and I’m now even more looking forward to the third season and the new Picard!
I’m up to episode 7 of Picard and although it’s conpletely different to discovery, it is equally as good, possibly better if only for the nostalgic side as it keeps cameoing classic characters. Definitely worth a watch if you love Star Trek. My only issue is they’re releasing an episode every Friday so you can’t binge watch the series!
