The fact that Michelle Yeoh is in it is enough to get my girlfriend interested.
I have the advantage that I usually prove to be right in predicting what she likes and she knows that.
So it‘s mostly a matter of overcoming her initial reluctance.
For these reasons, when first introducing to my wife, she asked me to show her the most recently produced one first.
So I did, and we began watching Enterprise.
This was a poor strategy.
It should work better these days, though.
The best part to me is the character interactions. I love that it's emotion first, everything else second. The Sarek family drama has been the highlight for me.
Oh, and it looks fucking amazing on my new TV.
My wife likes Star Trek, but she really loves DSC and really liked DS9 as well, but didn't start watching it with me until mid-way through S3. So maybe you'll have success with DS9
I didn't love it or hate it, until the last episode. Now it is definitely a thumbs down.
Do tell? What did you get?
But Sarek admitted he was a bad father! The only thing that could have made the scene better would have been Spock standing in the doorway hurling abuse at him the whole time.
A 49" 4K HDR Sony Bravia, upgrading from a crusty old 720p LG. I would have gone bigger, but it wouldn't fit in the alcove
I know your pain. I was limited to a 65" Samsung 4K HDR panel because of space issues.
I made my partner watch all the previous series. She liked DS9 and Voyager and tolerated the rest. She loves Discovery, possibly even more than I do.
I know a few people at work who are watching it as their first series - some have gone on to watch other series, some are just sticking with Discovery.
Having spent many years with nobody to talk to about Trek, it's a great feeling.
Happy to report that my good friend and housemate is a Star Trek fan for the first time in her 32 years on this rock. Her boyfriend and I pulled her in with the promise of Jason Isaacs, and now, even without him, she adore this series.
I've gotta say that it's a sheer joy to watch this show with my son (11yrs). It's really fun to see what captures his imagination, what he relates to and what he gets invested in.
He was in literal tears seeing Burnham's future vision of Leland killing the crew, got all verklempt at the Michael/Tyler intimate goodbye, chuckled at Po being Po, mimicked the crew standing at attention honoring Pike and yelled at the TV screen at the end when the episode cut off right before the big battle. He was so pumped for the final climax and then bitterly disappointed he'd have to wait a whole week for the resolution. I had to laugh at how frustrated he was. It was adorable.
I routinely ask him what his favorite parts are in an episode and the answer is, inevitably, "EVERYTHING!"
My wife also likes DSC as well, but she gets it mixed up with Orville.....lol.
The best part of DISCOVERY is that it brought an entertaining and thought provoking Star Trek show back to weekly TV.
There are a lot of things I like about the series, but the thing I like the most is it is the most challenging Star Trek series I have watched when it is in top form and that it actually requires me to pay close attention knowing I will be rewarded if I do. As much as I enjoy older Trek, this distinguishes it from all prior series, IMO, and my older brain appreciates the exercise.
My girlfriend asks me to put it on when she want to go to sleep. True Story!
To wake her up, give her the blinding light and high-pitched squealing from the beacon of Kahless.
we get it you don’t like the show
How is it handling all the stuff that make some people lament that this show isn't for kids? Just curious.
