I really liked the first two episodes, haven't watched the third yet. Despite my distaste for all the skewed camera angles, I felt it was very well executed production-wise. I'm one of those people that is perfectly accepting of change in art, so this timeline is something I'm way into already.
Plus, I actually like the new Klingons a lot - costumes, ship designs. I don't like the way they talk, as it literally sounds like the actors are forcing words through a pile of makeup, and has less appeal than previous timeline Klingon.
I was hoping this was good, and expecting it to be bad. It was a wonderful surprise to find that I enjoyed it as much as I did. I just hope there are more "typical" episodes for this series coming, though, heavier on the talking and sci-fi weirdness with less action and more humor. Q hurting his back is one of my favorite moments in Star Trek (along with anything Quark ever did ever), and while I doubt I'll get that with Discovery, I don't mind what I'm seeing so far. The age of the gritty reboot continues.
