Oh dear. I thought Star Trek HRT was an acquired taste, but Star Trek OAP is slower and self indulgently talkier than its episode length can handle. Two episodes in I've lost interest completely, and they haven't even put the crew together yet...

It does feel a bit light on content though I do like the Romulan Mrs. Doyle😜

sounds like another good reason not to subscribe to a subscription TV service?

Damn, I was waiting for a few episodes to accrue before I started watching that.

I can recommend The Expanse, I've just watched 4 seasons and it is quite fast paced with sub plots and excellent graphics.

Compared with Discovery it's very slow paced.

I'm enjoying it so far, but I agree it's slow going. I've gotten to episode 4 and he's still putting the crew together, 7 of 9 only just turned up at the end of that.  

In reply to Basemetal:

Wrong, you are all wrong.

But there is a kinky undertone between the Romulan brother and sister... GoT almost.

I gave it another 2 goes... I wasn't wrong!

Usually I could watch Patrick Stewart in anything (eg Coda) but this really is a flop.

Can you figure out the target audience? It's not action enough for pre-teens, its not engaging enough for young adults, its not well enough scripted for drama fans and it's not even Trekky enough for nostalgic Boomers.

The last episode I watched (4) was even (mis)directed by Jonathan Frakes... so they should know better, no?..

Nooo! Orla Brady will never be the same again!

I'm watching it on my commute to work, I actually quite enjoy it. It's not high drama, but it's pleasantly watchable.

pleasantly watchable seems apt.
