I've watched the first four episodes of season 2 and found them a bit uneven. The first two I thought were pretty well done.

Stand up comic Tig Notaro was introduced as a ships' doctor and I hope she shows up as a regular.





She was terrific...quirky and matter of fact and an interesting character.



The story was well written and it was good to see Captain Pike take charge.

Episodes 3 and 4 were a bit hectic and confusing....Why would Star Fleet put a Terran Empire ex-Emperor in such a vital role?

The YouTube link of the first two episodes is no longer available, so hopefully you've seen them or you pick them up from some other site like Putlocker like I do.

At least for the first season, the show is at best mediocre due to plot holes, awkward dialogue, etc. What's sad is that stories that make sense and character development are important aspects of TV shows but cost the least in terms of resources.

I'll check out reviews and see if there are improvements before I decide to watch the second season.

I watched the first few episodes with Bulldogtrekker, chatting on line, but I was so unimpressed I decided to wait a year or so and see if it grabbed me when I could binge watch it.

I haven't tried that yet.
