I'm really enjoying it, personally.

I'm still watching it so I suppose that's saying something. Not actually sure if I like it or not yet. Some things annoy me about it but are balanced out with things I do like.

For a first season in an ST franchise though it's quite strong showing which is very different to the other shows which all were awful in first season until they found their feet. So I suppose with that in mind this series has a head start and could continue strongly improving when everyone is gelled and the writing settles out.

I'm enjoying it too, more so than at the start. I think part of it was adjusting to a syndicated, on-going story in Star Trek, not to mention the different tone. The darker tone works for me, though, because the core crew of the Discovery are clinging onto the optimistic, hopeful ideals of Starfleet while everything falls apart around them.

Now I have finished the first series, overall I have enjoyed it. The second half of series one is much better than the first half. I almost gave up on it. Looking forward to series 2.

Yeah considering that's the first season it was pretty strong overall. Think it clearly benefits from a few quid being spent on it and some of the characters are great. I even warmed to Burnham towards the end there.

I was enjoying this to start with, but after a few episodes I just suddenly lost all interest. I don't think I'll go back to it.

Yeah, same tbh. I watched up until the mid-season hiatus, then lost interest in seeing the rest. Even when we're browsing Netflix for something to watch it doesn't occur to me to stick on one.

Similarly Lost in Space. We watched the first few and the wife was quite into it, then at some point during the fourth one (I think), I let out a big exasperated sigh and cried 'it's so bloody boooring' and she agreed.

I felt discovery picked up after the lull in the middle. I will give it the benefit of the doubt and look at it like any new ST series...the first season is the weakest and they get stronger as time goes on.

Haha! My wife and I actually really got into that show. I can't wait for the second season.
