    None of that is true, is it?

    i remember watching the premier of TNG with my girlfriend of the time. She/we loved it and watched it every week. I hadn't known she was a Trek fan. There being no internet then, and I barely ever glanced at TV reviews in the entertainment section so I had no idea what anyone thought..
    You can say that again!

    Best of the nu-Trek shows by quite a margin so far. This one actually feels like Star Trek.

    Two episodes in, I remain cautiously optimistic.

    A friend was trying to find someone to go to a concert with her the night TNG premiered, but we all said no to watch the show. (Sucks when all your friends are nerds.) She was always more a Whovian. In retrospect, the concert might have been the better option. :lol:

    I'm struggling. I like the visuals, and the pacing isn't rushed like other recent Trek shows. But I still feel bored.

    Maybe I'm just burned out? I did catch up on the following Trek over the past 5 months:

    Into Darkness
    Beyond
    entire TAS
    DISC Seasons 1-4
    PIC seasons 1-2
    LD seasons 1-2
    entire Short Treks
    PRO first 9 episodes
    first 2 episodes of SNW
    rewatches of many TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY & ENT episodes

    That's a lot after such a long break (besides a few show repeats, I'd only seen the first Abrams movie since ENT ended).

    That is definitely one way to get burned out on Star Trek!

    I've only seen maybe half of what you have (86 episodes from 9 of the series in the last 5 months), but I've been feeling the same thing about SNW to be honest. It's got a solid cast and I'm sure they'll win me over in time, but the stories haven't grabbed my interest yet.

    Two episodes in, this series has been fantastic so far. I feel like trek is finally back as a lifelong trekkie

    I think it has potential to be my favorite of the new Star Treks. Right now I'm enjoying it as much as I enjoy Prodigy and Lower Decks, and that's a good thing.

    That's exactly how I feel. My folks don't stream so if the quality of the show continues I'll be picking up this set on blue ray for them whenever it gets released.

    The best Trek series since 2005. Hands down.

    So, adventures in TV....

    I haven't been watching much for years, mostly just catching some live sports and reruns of shows I like. Trek for example. My TV's audio was pretty distorted but it didn't matter when I knew what everyone was saying anyway.

    Long story short, tonight I got some AAA's for the TV remote and fixed the settings. Eureka! I can understand what they're saying! Now I'll re-watch episode one and maybe comment on it tomorrow. Right now, I just watched episode 2 AND IT WAS FREAKIN' AMAZING.

    Best thing I loved: Nichelle Nichols had an amazing voice, and we heard her sing on a few occasions. This episode was a tribute to Nichelle. Gooding's voice gave me chills, actually reminding me of Uhura in TOS. The way the storyline pivoted around music was inspired. The main plot would have looked good in TOS, except so much better in detail.

    So yeah, this tastes more like TOS than any Trek since. I love the cast. Jess Bush as Christine Chapel at first was weird, but she is so likeable and energetic she's got me caught. Anson Mount has me ready to follow him into a nebula. Ethan Peck is getting there, and I get they don't want him to loosen up too much too soon. I still haven't quite figured out La'an, but I think once I re-watch episode one with proper sound I'll catch on. Number One is... Number One, but I'm getting a hint of Kira Nerys in there somewhere. Maybe it's just me. Not selling the rest short, I'm getting into them all.

    So far, this is a show I think I'm going to love.

    Yay. Though I don't think of it as some kind of return to form that many others feel it is, it has a unique feel from the other current shows, and I'm enjoying it so far.

    Yay! Pike looks fantastic in a dress, he has great legs. He also has great taste in male lovers.
