    I've done some tidying up. So far, I've kept the tidying up to posts, but have no problem tidying membership up if needs be.

    I 'understand' perfectly - but no, let's keep the open exchange of thought and opinion under control. I get it.

    Excellent. When you're able to express your thoughts without offending literally everyone nearby you'll be welcome to express those thoughts. We're an open minded group of people from all over the world and all walks of life. If you want to participate, then that's the price of entry.

    Now, did someone say this was on Netflix...?

    Banned after 7 posts? Is that a record for a non-spammer?

    Nah- I've known people a lot more offensive than that, lol. A cursory search revealed that he/she behaves like that everywhere, then picks fights with hosts who take exception or disagree. Classic keyboard warrior.

    Well, we definitely don't need one of those.

    Back on topic. I was less than impressed with the third episode/first production episode of Discovery. I found much of the dialog to be stupid and most of the newly introduced characters unlikable. Plus, the plot holes and the dark lighting to try and intensify dread weren't to my liking either. And, much more of the anachronistic tech continues to showcase that this clearly isn't a show from the "Prime Universe" of Star Trek. If the show doesn't get better in an episode or two, I'll stop watching.

    Did that guy work for CBS??

    I really wanted to like STD.... i went in trying to push away all my preconceptions.. after all sgu turned out to be my favorite star gate show by the end..

    i don't think I've gone 5 minutes yet without pausing STD to ask my wife what the hell have they done??? I watched episodes 1 and 2 and thought OK I hate this, but i need to give it a chance... most pilots are clunky.. Now we're actually on discovery it might get moving... but again a couple of minutes into episode 3 and pause.. wtf is this.. i think it was supposed to be a scene full of drama and suspense but it was just laughable.. then they get to discovery and how they are spoken to by the security officer is again laughable... obviously the writer thought that they were writing a scene for orange is the new black.. next scene pause.. ok why are the prisoners eating in the mess hall with all the starfleet officers and not in the bring?? OK mark stop nit picking and just watch it.. pause.. were they seriously going to start a fight with her in the middle of the mess hall with the crew of the discovery around them??? that's not even 10 minutes into the episode.. The next 40 minutes were pretty much the same.

    now i don't want to be one of those whiny trekkies that cbs seems to disdain but want the money from.. But so far this series is a joke.. They seem to think that if we make everyone an Ahole and shove a few pointless action beats into the episode it will create some good drama.. cover it up with awesome vfx and add keep hammering the recognisable sound effects and nobody will notice..

    when we watched the expanse last year i said ds9 was too early, imagine if we had a startrek series like this..

    so far in my opinion they have had a huge swing, and missed..

    i'll probably check out the Series in a few months but i'm not going to be running home every Monday to watch the next episode.. such a shame..


    Ok rant over..
