What was wrong with it? My only issue was the Romulan (was he a Romulan? I'm not sure) in the scavanged Borg cube wearing early 21st century hipster garb.
wellllll....in fairness my criticism is based on the fact that I fell asleep about 4 times during it, despite the shininess and the fight scenes etc.

That Bejazzle actress looked unforgivably too much like Deanna Troi. It took me way too long work out what was happening.

That was about 2 seconds out of 5 episodes. I think it's pretty good overall. Apart from Chernobyl last year this is the first tv series I've watched since I watched the first 4 series of Allo Allo sometime around 2005, and I find it all a bit hurried. It feels like each episode should be at least 2 hours long to to do justice to all the plot they're squeezing in. Chernobyl had similar problems but not to the same extent. How do you regular tv watchers find it in this regard?

Been watching Doctor Who,as always. Jodie Whitaker era is getting better and watching old ones with Eoin. He likes Sylvester McCoy. ( not my favourite I must say)

It was way fucking longer than 2 seconds.
Haven’t gotten to episode 5 yet but yeah I feel like they’re are trying to cram too much in. Feels a bit rushed alright

Yeah, I thought it was a remarkably well aged Troy at first.

Having trouble with the dialogue overall on this, it's so very stilted, and some of the actors, like Raffi, just can't bring it to life. She does a great anxious or pissed off face, but the text is just so stiff.

Even with the more ridiculous sci-fi jargon, the Discovery script writers pay way more attention to natural speech cadences, far more believable, despite talking gibberish.

The teenage assassin lad was cool though, almost made up for the excruciating sock sliding scene. That was just terrible.

This has really got going the last few episodes, deadly so it is. It was nice to have an episode without that English-accented Zhat Vash lad. I'd say season two will be have a lot more Borg action. Was that a stash of vinyls that the ship's captain had in his treasure chest?
