Critic Reviews for Brother

[Rapp] has been given an unreasonable amount of dramatic heavy-lifting, and carried it off with aplomb.

If the tightly-structured first episode, directed by Kurtzman and titled "Brother," is any indication, "Discovery" has found its own quicker than its predecessors.

Jet. Reno. That is a Good Space Name... If Jet Reno - JET RENO! - is there, so am I.

Some of my favorite moments in "Brother" were the jokes, and nearly all of them worked without breaking the mood.

It's easy enough to watch, if too hasty to get into the pew-pew space battle stuff.

Brother does an expert job at establishing the central narrative drives for the season, from an overall season arc perspective, to inter-character relationships and issues.

Tilly, meanwhile, was just as delightful as always... Stamets might want her to "say fewer things," but I don't!

I knew Star Trek: Discovery was the most progressive Star Trek show to date, but was this a hilarious step too far? (Eh, maybe not.)

With the debut of the red Starfleet uniform on Discovery, it's perhaps inevitable the series would have a little fun subverting five decades' worth of expectations.

The ability of "Brother" to walk the line between the funny and the grisly here is admirable.

New characters introduced in interesting ways. Check. New mission set up with a good dose of mystery and potential disaster. Check.

It's not necessarily a bad move - in the presence of a captain we know we can trust, Discovery feels much more self-assured.
