I Will Probably Give Star Trek: Discovery a Try
I am not a Trekkie. Never have been. There’s nothing wrong with Trekkies, it just wasn’t the geeky fandom I embraced growing up. I’ve never seen the original TV series, though I have marathoned through the various movies — and I’m a big fan of the modern reboot movies.
But I’ll probably give the new TV show Star Trek: Discovery a try, because I’m a big fan of the current crop of prestige TV.
Though I’m a little disappointed that this series will be set before the original. Isn’t that exactly what they did with Enterprise, the last new Star Trek TV show? And didn’t that show flop? What’s the fascination with prequel shows? Why not boldly go into the future?
Also, is this new show set in the continuity of the modern reboot movies? Because that would be neat.
And if Star Trek isn’t your thing, Seth MacFarlane is making a parody show called The Orville. Now this show looks neat.
Maybe I’ll watch them both!
