The song sung at the end I guessed was an anti-English song? Was that the joke? I took it as that anyway :)

Plus the time delay that disappeared at the end :)

Star Trek Discovery

Everything in the universe no matter how big or small directly relates to Michael. Every other character is just her props and foils. It’s such lazy cliched writing. It’s an enjoyable watch but the missed potential with this is irritating.

I gave up watching the first season about half way through, then came back to it months later (actually a year later, I think!) and kinda enjoyed it. Then I started season 2 back in January this year, and after only one episode I lost ALL interest. Now I'm completely over Star Trek.
I know always that I am an outsider; a stranger in this century and among those who are still men.

This was my experience with the first season - in fact I thought the second half was far superior to the first (which had dragged in places) and I binged the rest over the course of about three nights.

I've not watched the second season yet, but I suspect my experience with that will be similar to yours once again, going by what I've read.

How do you restrain the urge to punch things whenever you see Seth’s face? :-k

I must admit I'm getting a bit weary of the overly-dramatic presentation. Star Trek in its 90s heyday was slow-paced and thoughtful, but Discovery just doesn't take any time to do anything - it's all shaking camera shots and sparks and explosions and people shouting at one another. It's impatient. I think the performance of Sonequa Martin Green is a perfect demonstration; her delivery is completely wrong for the character she's supposed to be portraying. She's been brought up in an environment dominated by Vulcan logic and and a lack of emotion, but everything she says is overtly emotional - her backstory doesn't really seem to make sense.
