    I personally think the show is great, good change to the norm added with a twist brutal reality, violence and gore.

    Really struggled with the last episode, the last part seemed to go all weird with people remembering. Not connecting with any of the characters either and that tall weird looking one does my head in.

    Not sure about it, I'll carry on but my patience is being tested....I know, I know it's still early days.

    I am not overly enthusiastic about this show yet, most of the characters are a bit meh, and the whole "previous star trek wasn't as sophisticated as we are" excuse for it looking more like a JJ production than it does TOS, kinda feels like a cop out to me.

    On the other hand, I'd be more than happy to boldly go with cadet Tilly.

    Mid season finale was amazing, edge or your seat stuff from start to finish, easily the best episode so far, such a shame we have to wait until January. :(

    I can't think of any other ST series that has me this gripped after 9 episodes, I know many don't like it and that's fine but you're missing out.

    As long as Burnham does no more running I'm fine with it.

    Really enjoyed the first nine episodes, not afraid to just jump right in, I think that was Enterprises problem, they spent season one to slowly and over cautious. Therefore losing too many viewers, this has been quite the opposite.

    My only one criticism that's been driving me mad though

    "WHY THE **** ARE THE SUBTITLES SO BIG AND IN CAPS!!!!!!" arghhhhhhhhh!

    Im not a huge ST fan, but really liking this (liked the original reboot film , but not fan of previous films or tv series) but quite enjoying this to be honest.

    The last episode (didnt realise there was a break for so long) was very good indeed but makes up for the previous one that was very weak imo.

    I just wish they would stop shoving the LGB down the viewers throats - its not from an offensive point of view (its not offensive), but it doesnt need to be quite so front and centre
    (Im also not that convinced it would be allowed even so far in the future between the officers etc)

    By far the best episode so far, it's not even close.

    I agree about the kissing and canoodling, it's a military ship, it just wouldn't be allowed, certainly not on duty - but it is 2017 after all, got to have some LGBGT in it like every other program on TV

    Thought it was just me - it's the most over exaggerated running going.

    Feels like Family Guy in space, you could take some of the story lines and give them family guy characters and it would probably work better.

    It's far more in the spirit of TNG than Discovery.

    At least characters seem real...
    Number 1 warns not to kill the leader and what does she do.... useless.

    And shoots him in the back.

    Must be a romulan double agent.

    Thankfully they are now using the Universal Translator. They should have used google translate before.

    Not sure what that means, they seem more real than the 2D perfect Star Fleet officers in TNG that so rarely do anything wrong, they have to dedicate a whole episode to them when they do.

    They're only 9 episodes in, the characters in TNG, Voyager or DS9 were not fully fleshed out after 9 episodes. You have multiple series to draw on for these so it's not a fair comparison.

    Also the acting in Discovery is very good as well, they're doing a great job.
