REview: Star Trek: Discovery (2019) | Season Two

What I wrote in my review of the first season of Star Trek: Discovery was that I enjoyed it despite the fact that it was Star Trek in name only (for the most part) that doesn’t apply to the second season, which has almost righted the ship, so to speak.

Part of the reason for the improvement is, besides doing a better job of acknowledging past iterations of Star Trek, is because of exemplary acting by Anson Mount, Michelle Yeoh and Doug Jones (which shouldn’t be interpreted as saying that the other actors didn’t acquit themselves admirably though the people I mentioned were at the top of their game) while characters that initially came off as prissy, like Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp) or irritating, like Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman) were less so this time around.

Another bonus was that people seemed to have a sense of humor–typically situational via an off-hand remark or gesture–which is always welcome.

There was so much hate in the YouTube community surround Star Trek: Discovery, and while I understand it (for the most part) for Season One I definitely don’t think it’s justified for the second.
