It's different from what B&B were giving us, and I can understand why people like the novelty of that. It's not bad in the same way that stuff was. It's bad in a whole different way.
I've never had the hate for B&B the way some fans have. I actually would point to the Xindi arc as an example of how you can successfully give an audience a mindless action adventure romp with plenty of eye candy, big battles with lots of ships with little in the way of deep social commentary but where the villians' motivations for destroying a planet make sense. Plus there was a whole lot more in the way of reaction to Earth's attack in "The Expanse" and "Twilight" than we ever saw to Vulcan's destruction in the film.
