Well, it finally premiered. First episode is also on Hulu, and probably elsewhere by now.
Got to say, still optimistic.
Visually it's spot on. Not overly grim dark, not lens flared to death, not even "I can totally tell they're filming this in an industrial brewery" overly realistic. Nope, just exactly what you'd expect an optimistic trek homage to look like.
Now the writing is a bit all over the place. You can tell the writers are used to a half hour show, some of the jokes are dragged out just a bit too long and other scenes are also stretched out for filler. But most jokes land pretty well, if a bit low key, assuming you're into the Seth McFarland style humor. If you hate him, this probably won't change your mind.
I'm curious if the show develops its own voice, as it were. If it can manage to step above parody into it's own thing. Then we'd really have something.
