We wrapped up Star Trek Discovery’s second season last night. Visually stunning, fun, well-acted, with a great score. But also: poorly paced, convoluted, and confusing to follow the plot.
I can’t dislike it, mainly because of Michelle Yeoh and Anson Mount, but I wish I could have liked it more. It was so preoccupied with tying itself into existing cannon that I think it lost itself. Changing show runners halfway through the season probably hurt, too.
Hopefully season three is even better!
I mean, it’s been two seasons I can only make a few of the Discovery’s bridge crew.
To contrast: we’re four episodes into Strange New Worlds and we already know the tragic backstories on Uhura, Una, M’Benga and La’an – all the characters feel more real and the world feels lived-in.
SNW is so good! It has no right being this good this quickly!
@ashfurrow my only theory is that they got to soft-launch it with the intersections with Discovery S2, which gave the writers and key actors a chance to find their voices
