(1) “I couldn’t believe how one dimensional the Discovery characters were. This Burnham chic has two gears. Intense, brooding, semi constipated, judgmental angry mode. Also, the actress is really unsuited for this role. I don’t like her performance at all. There’s no comradery between the characters. Nothing relatable about them. No relationships to become invested in. The show is written so poorly, the actors just rattle off dialog in a fast paced manner. Let’s just get through the scenes and get them over and done with. Nobody speaks like this in the real world. It’s not believable. It’s also one dimensional, wooden, and forced. They’re like robots. There’s nothing hopeful, thought provoking, optimistic, or intelligent about this plot. We’ve seen all of this kind of stuff before. It’s just a series of action scenes and haphazardly written exposition dialog that just feels rushed. The whole affair feels joyless.”
(2) We can’t see the bridge, why do we have to have Spock’s father in every series, the Klingons have their facial expressions, the only interesting character dies in the pilot, etc.
(3) Deus Ex Machino says Discovery’s main character gets off to a very bad start.
(4) Discovery and diversity
