As a Trekkie, I keep watching, trying...but it is.. trying.
12 April 2019 | by berkovich-76592See all my reviews

Not going to get into it too much but 2 main things bug me about this show and though a fan from the very beginning of Trek and old enough to remember it airing live...and there have been some good/decent episodes this season - and I honestly don't are about 'canon' so much - but again the series is wildly inconsistent more than any previous series ever was.

1. why does Burnham constantly put down/seem to know more/usurp the captain? sure, subordinates often have better ideas because they are often experts in a given field, as in any workplace, but seemingly in EVERY episode (this season, Pike) winds up asking of Burnham 'what is your recommendation?" so then why not just put Burnham in charge since she apparently has all the answers? What's the point, otherwise? Spock (original Spock), Riker, etc could have been in charge but weren't; but while offering insights they also didn't continually blatantly and publicly embarrass their commanders with the 'smarter' answer to whatever. Even in a current century office there are protocols around that, the second in command goes to the commander privately yet we are led to assume that in this advanced century you just publicly countermand your commander? 2. more tellingly, where is the HUMOR in this show? unlike every other Trek preceding this series there appears to be (unless I've missed it) NO sense of humor to this series. Zero. None. There's never a fun episode, or fun parts in any episode, things like the old Spock-McCoy banter, or Worf's dry wit, etc. etc. there seem to be attempts at it but so poorly executed as to be just pathetic.

fix that up and it might be worth watching. I continue to watch, hoping.
