So we're at the end of the first chunk of the series and I have been thinking about what I feel about the show. I won't go into my full thoughts on that in this thread, but suffice it to say I am probably liking about 60% of what the show has offered so far. One thing that has firmly placed itself in the 40 percent is the show's use of overt content. It has really bothered me because so far it has added nothing to the show as far as I can see. We have had pretty severe gore in multiple episodes, from exposed bones and flesh, to blood splattered everywhere to this week's half a dissected body with internal organs on show. Then there was the excruciatingly poorly delivered F-Bomb that felt so unnecessary and was there simply for the shock value. Finally we now have naked Klingon breasts and Klingon sex/rape scenes. Now, don't get me wrong. I am no prude or stranger to R rated content. But my question is, does Star Trek need it? I feel that it is being done just so they can try and ape Game of Thrones, but I fail to see what any of it really adds to the Trek universe. Plus, Trek being something I grew up with as a kid (as did many, if not most, of us) it feels like this Trek is being taken away from younger audiences. I see that sort of stuff no more necessary in Trek than it is in, say, Doctor Who or Star Wars. Even JJ Trek didn't feel it needed to go R rated. So, what do you think? Has it added to the show or not? I'd be quite happy to see the back of it in season 2 myself.
