The Discovery premiere feels like a failure to me,
albeit an entertaining and occasionally epic and ambitious failure.
The first hour aired on CBS this Sunday, with the second hour immediately available on CBS All Access.
But they’re really one complete story –
a secret Star Trek movie,
I’d argue, better looking than any of the Next Generation films, more clever than Star Trek Beyond.
It’s the most expensive and beautiful looking Star Trek to ever appear on TV or the movies, to be quite honest.
CBS has put a ton of money into this thing to act as a launching pad for its All Access streaming service.
That, along with the stunning production values,
is enough to at least drag Trekkies over to a new streaming service.
Everyone else, though, might need a little more convincing.
HOW ABOUT YOU?
Did any of you watch the show?
If so, what did you think of it?
Is it worth paying $6 a month to watch?
