Finally started the new season of Discovery. I knew the season was going to be heavy before I started, because I have the internet. It started off pretty good, relatively light. The pacing felt really rushed tho. Like, “we’re trying to compress an hour of show into half an hour” rushed. They also telegraphed things pretty blatantly. Then the hard, if obvious, gut punch at the end.

Overall, not quite what I’ve come to expect from ST:D; it felt rushed and obvious. But, I assume they’re just trying to get through the setup quickly so they can get into the meat of the season.
