    Thats kind of where I am, too - I'm way more excited about the Star Trek Continues 2 part finale, then I am about Discovery....

    I'd be interested and maybe even excited for this new series if I had CBS All-Access. But I don't and won't be getting it for a single show I want to see.

    I really feel for you guys having to play with a new service if you want to watch this. One of the few times I can be grateful for being in the UK with Netflix and already having it, I suppose.

    Oh, cool. We too. Makes up a little bit for all the stuff we don't have on Netflix, I guess.
    I'll give it a look tonight.

    Not exactly "Excited".

    More like "This Seems Like It Has Potential, But The Network Is Really Trying To Talk Me Out Of It."

    "We'll throw in Kevin Can Wait for free if you'll pony up the cash for this." That's a hard sell.

    Ehh, there are certain aspects people are not realizing. For one, the first episode is airing on television. And secondly, for those outside the US, the show will be airing weekly on Netflix. So it's not solely a CBS All Access exclusive series.

    Plus the advantage that if I don't like Discovery I'll have all the other Trek shows to watch and rewatch in its place, since all six classic shows have been available to stream on Netflix UK since the start of the year.

    Well, that was disappointing.

    On closer look Netflix Belgium only has a trailer with an actual episode to follow the 25th.

    it's showing on space in canada.

    I hope it and orville start competing , so it improves the quality of both shows.

    (kinda like how both b5 and ds9 did).

    That's because you're not paying attention to what I said. Trek fans, to a large extent, will always feel an invested interest in something that carries the franchise name, and will have certain expectations of it. The casual viewer will not. For many, as soon as they here "after Picard" or something similar regarding the show's setting, they are in many cases likely to meet it with an eye roll and a general reaction of indifference, just because they aren't familiar with all that's gone before.

    Your Doctor Who reference doesn't really work, because there's never been enough continuity there to matter much. You can watch any episode from the first on and not have to know anything about what has come before. There are vague references, but not in any plot-defining way. Trek doesn't have that history. It's all over the place with timelines crossing, merging, diverging. It's not out of the question to suppose that someone casually interested in Trek - if that much - and hearing that it takes place after all the other events, might suppose that means the same sort of convolution that Generations was.

    Not saying that view is or must be valid, but that's not the point. The pre-conception of the uninvested potential viewer is what needs to be addressed. Trek fans alone will not make a Trek series a success, just as comic fans alone won't make a comic book movie a success.
