    I just finished watching Season 2. I thought it was well done for the most part. The Klingons looked more like TNG Klingons. The Red Angel storyline was an interesting mystery. I liked the actors who played Capt. Pike and the several ages of Spock. The development of Saru and his people was very interesting. The in-depth look at the early Section 31 was also interesting. A couple of things bugged me though. I didn't like the reimagined hand phasors with their little red energy be-bees. Also, I thought it was inappropriate for a shuttle craft to have its own transporter system. In a "tech manual" for TOS Enterprise, the transporter system was illustrated to be about three stories high above the transporter pads. So, it seemed to me that the sort of mini-transporters that exist later in TNG, DS9, etc., were not yet developed 100, or so, years previously. Overall, I will look forward to Season 3.

      The technology doesn't make any sense for it to be 10 years before Kirk. And season 2 at the end, they forgot their whole plot... the signals already appeared in the first episode.

      I also think they were grooming Control storyline to be a Borg origin thing, but they got deterred from it. Probably by people who know the Borg are thousands of years old.

        Look at this, these are the press kits that went out to all the press to drum up interest in season 3, along with the first four episodes to review:







        Big bottles of whisky! CBS is literally sending big bottles of whisky to the press. As if to say, "Look, we know they're bad, but these episodes are going to be WAY better if you're fucked up!"

        Myself, I just saw the first episode of season 3. Terrible. The writers literally don't know that the Federation and Starfleet are two different things. There's several points where they use the terms interchangeably, also incorrectly (what's a "Federation officer"? that's an oxymoron). Also, sure enough, right away there are lots of explosions, about 20 people murdered with phasers, and yes, Michael Burnham screaming and crying (twice in the episode).

          That was about the only thing I liked about ENT outside of Dark Mirror:Part one to be honest!

            Ethan Peck or Speck as I call him was no Leonard Nimoy, not even a Zachary Quinto in my opinion either...

              Oh, he did fine, at least to me.

                After watching two episodes of this season the main thing that sticks with me is the 18th/19th century colonialism-justification attitude with a seasoning of White Savior Syndrome. (Just making the people who want to save the locals from their way of doing things Black and Asian is an insufficient lampshade to hang on it, IMHO.) I have a thin hope of them getting their attitude handed to them on a platter.

                  Peck was... eh, serviceable. They might as well have brought in Quinto, and I don't even like those movies.
