I never signed up to watch it with CBS All Access (which I'd have to do since I don't live outside of the U.S.) but now that's it's out on Blu-Ray, is it worth getting? I have always (though in my younger years, much less fervently) liked Star Trek. I grew up with my parents watching TNG at least. They had reruns of TNG on BBC so I watched many of those episodes from 2009 - 2012, but it wasn't until 2012/2013 where I sat down and binge-watched the entirety of all of Star Trek, starting with TNG since I knew that one most, then TOS, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise (I had seen all the movies, but eh [First Contact is great though to me]).
I loved watching all of them, but when Discovery was coming and was only accessible by CBS All Access I was super disappointed. Now that it's out on Blu-Ray, I can finally see it if I want to purchase it. What did everyone else think of it? I know most people say the first season in most ST's aren't great so we have to give it time, and I should say that my opinion sometimes differs from others, like liking Neelix as a character, or choosing favorite series over another since I like them all about equally. So, getting obvious out of the way in how opinions differ, I'm still curious what all of you thought of it nonetheless.
I think what would largely turn me off is, and it was the big issue before it came out, is if they change too many things in its continuity. I get that some of the show creators said that they don't care too much about it, but as a fan, I do if they go too far since it makes their universe far less believable if you will. How is the whole positive outlook of the future, or the way the show might deal with current real-world issues masked in a Star Trek story? I would hope there is at least a little of that, and not just some typical drama that has nothing to say. That said, that hasn't stopped me from watching other shows like that. How is the setting/atmosphere and characters?
If it turns out that it's not worth checking out, well... there is The Orville. I like that show; it's actually a good show in my opinion.
