I wasn’t that impressed with the trailer and I’m not really a star trek fan, I’ve only seen the first 2 movies of the new franchise. I already have CBS all access so I’ll give it a chance. Maybe it’ll make it worth paying for.
Airs tomorrow and still no reviews. Uh oh.
Apparently CBS isn’t letting reviews be posted until after tomorrow’s episode because there are a number of twists in the first few episodes that they don’t want spoiled. So no reviews until after the first episode airs.
News of embargoed reviews are never encouraging. Usually suggests a bomb of mythic proportion.
I thought the premiere was fine. I’ll keep watching. Shocked that it got a 76 on metacritic. I thought it’d be in the 60’s but I’m glad. I doubt this’ll have any major awards chances. Based on the first episode I was not a fan of Martin-Green or Yeoh but I will allow more time before I dislike their performances as I have liked them both in the past.
Maintained a 76 with 9 more reviews, 16 total. Congratulations Akiva Goldsman, this was the first thing since Beautiful mind that something your name was attached to wasn’t panned.
Did anybody else watch?
I love the first 2 episodes of the show. I know that people are divided about this but I think it is promising and worth watching. Let’s see how the next episodes will play because the next episode will surely be a “re-pilot”.
