81% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Will You Take My Hand? (TV Episode) The plot didn't make sense. The characters contradicted themselves again. And the pacing was all over the place. But man, the Discovery season finale -- "Will You Take My Hand?" -- was satisfying.‐ New York Times

88% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - What's Past Is Prologue (TV Episode) "Discovery" has great action. But in both, the characters make such astoundingly odd decisions that it makes it difficult to get invested in the action. The plots exist simply as transportation vehicles.‐ New York Times

94% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Vaulting Ambition (TV Episode) Whatever Discovery is, it's not a rip-off of previous iterations of Star Trek. For better or worse, it's not leaning on the old conventions of the franchise. It deserves appreciation for that.‐ New York Times

81% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - The Wolf Inside (TV Episode) Like with so much of the Discovery maiden voyage, the ambition and ideas are interesting, but the execution often leaves much to be desired.‐ New York Times

95% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Despite Yourself (TV Episode) It's no surprise that this week's installment of Discovery was a strong one, especially because it was directed by someone who knows Trek intimately: -- William T. Riker himself, Jonathan Frakes.‐ New York Times

75% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Into the Forest I Go (TV Episode) This week's episode, the midseason finale, felt like it was ignoring the previous eight episodes and all of their character work.‐ New York Times

89% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (TV Episode) The Klingon story moved in ways I didn't expect.‐ New York Times

100% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad (TV Episode) Discovery has often lacked the ability to have fun with itself. This was the first episode to even try and it worked, even while keeping the stakes as high as possible.‐ New York Times

79% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Lethe (TV Episode) Shoehorning Spock in as Burnham's adoptive brother was a questionable move even before Discovery took off -- and it feels even more ridiculous in this week's mess of an episode.‐ New York Times

76% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Choose Your Pain (TV Episode) Discovery hasn't lacked for tension. It has had moments of shaky storytelling and character development, however. Thankfully, this episode delivered a near-perfect mix of all three elements.‐ New York Times

81% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry (TV Episode) Burnham's scenes felt like a more traditional Trek episode, which was enjoyable in its own right.‐ New York Times

92% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Context Is for Kings (TV Episode) The show's promise is still there. Whatever it is, it isn't boring. It has action and strong casting.‐ New York Times

100% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - The Vulcan Hello (TV Episode) For better or worse, Discovery is already a departure from past Trek series, both in style and serialized substance. This is not your Vulcan father's Star Trek.‐ New York Times

88% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Battle at the Binary Stars (TV Episode) The writers are taking risks and should receive some credit for that. But whether viewers will be able to get behind Burnham when we don't know much about the rest of the ensemble remains to be seen.‐ New York Times
