in the US it is only available on CBS AllAccess which is a paid streaming service; I'm not sure I'm willing to pay for just one show Sad

I am definetly nt wiilling to pay extra for just one show. Even if it is is Star Trek.

I happened upon the first episode on CBS but it didn't draw me in so I watched something else. I wonder about CBS's idea of showing it on a streaming service for a fee- is it not good enough for network airing, I wonder?

On a related note, 'The Orville', which is on FOX in the States seems to be the polar opposite of Star Trek's ideals. I've seen bits of the first two episodes and it's funny at times but again, it had nothing to draw me in so I'll probably pass in future unless there is nothing else to watch when it airs.

It's on Netflix everywhere else and adored every second of it. But I am the type of person to get a streaming service for one show and only been let down once on that front (Looking at you Twin Peaks the Return)

Michael Burnham is a fascinating character and I'm really loving what they're doing with the Klingons. Also wow Saru looks cool. I would say that anyone not grabbed by episode one should at lest check out episode two. Two is much better and it'll really reel you in.

Have seen 3 episodes of the Orville and so far its the only Seth McFarlane project I've ever liked, that said its just okay. Tries to be a bit too TNG-ish, but no surprise Brannon Braga is a producer and Frakes himself is directing a couple of them.

The first episode was shown on broadcast television, the rest on a streaming service.

I won't be watching. I think all modern day television is crap.

Haven't got Netflix - my soul's been sold to Amazon Prime.

There are all sorts of diverging opinions on Twitter that I've been reading with interest - 'Discovery' seems a bit Marmite at the moment.

Well 95.5% of it anyway.

I know I PVR'd the first one or two off Space in Canada. I'd best check to see if the third got picked up as well.

It seems strange it would be on satellite in Canada but streaming in USA

Fortunately, this is on Netflix in Australia so I can watch it.

I've seen the first two episodes. Some of it made me roll my eyes, but I generally enjoyed it. Not sure about Michael. I do wish that Michelle Yeoh's character had stayed on, but killing off the captain at the outset is a time honoured Star Trek cliche, so I shouldn't really complain.

My husband is still reserving judgement, but has promised to watch at least one more. I've told him that, if he really doesn't want to watch it, please tell me, as what often seems to happen is that he loses interest and diverts to other things, and then I am left wondering whether I should just continue watching by myself. He has watched Star Trek with me in the past, but our watch history is littered with things that we can't agree on. About the only thing we're agreed on is that we don't like wildlife documentaries.

I've enjoyed it so far. Eps 1 and 2 are a prologue (not even set on the Discovery) to the series, so you should at least give it until you've watched ep 3 to decide whether you'll keep watching. Doug Jones as Saru is excellent, the best alien make-up on ST by far, and Jason Isaacs makes an interesting, not-necessarily-good captain.

Discovery is okay, Ep 1-2 dragged a bit Episode 3 is where it gets more interesting.

In my mind there are better series out there, the Expanse grabs me more, personally I feel these revamped Trek series have had their day. But I'll give it some more time to see how it fleshes out. In my mind there can be only one, the original and best Grin

I really really wanted to like this show.. but the dialogue is terribly unrealistic, the situations forced, and everyone is really unlikeable (yes, even the cadet who introduces herself with "my name is Tilly and my character trait is x" )

And I can forgive the revamped Klingons but it's so grating listening to them speak their made-up language through false teeth and prosthetics.

It's a pretty lookin' show, though.

Caveat: I've seen the first 4 episodes, got bored with The Expanse, loved DS9, loved the first few seasons of BSG.

How much of the Expanse did you see Cakeinmilk?
It takes more than one or two episodes to appreciate it and even more to identify whats going on. It originates from a book and it shows with the scope and concept.

Seen episode 4 of Discovery, less impressed now. But will stick with it as it is definitely the best of the 'New Trek' series so far, mind you that's not too difficult a hurdle to clear Pfft

Just waiting for Westworld and Walking Dead to return really. New BSG really lost it after season 1 and don't even get me started on that stupid pointless Cylon virus subplot in the third season. Angry

Just think how the first 4 episodes of TNG were before judging.

I watched the entirety of the first season, but found myself playing on my phone more and more. Maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind.

And I'll give Discovery a season to prove itself to me, much as I did Enterprise (I only tuned in thereafter for the occasional episode - I remember liking the mirror universe one), but I was hooked on TNG from the very first episode (admittedly I was 9 when it first aired in the UK, so perhaps wasn't as quick to judge!)

Only the first 4 episodes? Or the first 4 seasons... Pfft
