Managed to catch the first two episodes without ads, thanks to our PVR. It took a little juggling because the show started late. Luckily I taped every instance on every channel..
So how was it?
Good. I was pleasantly surprised. I like female lead characters and Michael Burnham is stellar. “Michael” is a woman, btw. I thought that was an interesting twist, given all the transgender news and remaining biases around sex role stereotypes.
Another reviewer at Now Magazine thought the Klingon scenes were a bit hokey and overdone. I can see that. I never really liked the complex Klingon culture story line in Trek spinoffs.
But we’ll see. I enjoyed the first two episodes.
Now that I’ve finished the entire Vikings series, I’ve been feeling a lack of something to watch. Something engaging.
I need my sci-fi fix and when there’s no good sci-fi around, life gets dull.
Ahead… warp factor two!
