It was a superficial space action series with hollow acting that avoided building a world or even filling out details that made earlier Star Trek franchises great. I'd give it three stars if not for the potential it had.
This show is a joke. I watched it with a bunch of people, and even the people who liked it seem to be enjoying it in the ironic way. This is not Star Trek.
From the awful plots through the meaningless themes, this breaks no ground.
Show had potential, but ended up not very good. A friend described it as trying to be live action Archer, but it plays too straight to get there. Casting also seemed confused as to whether it was going to be serious or comedic.
The new season fails at being either good scifi or good drama, with storylines too small for the first and the multitude of companions giving too little time for development of any for the second.
It's as if the show thought it was enough to have a wacky person running around with friends and a sonic screwdriver. Dr. Who needs more than that to be a good show. It was a misguided attempt.
