Thanos Thanos:
All those older shows managed to do it though, to accomplish something, without making the viewer feel like they'd been tied to a chair in a dungeon being yelled at for 48 straight hours by some kind of Campus Maoist Collective For Thought-Correction. Which is what an average episode of Discovery feels like when Burnham gets her wind up and starts all a-preachin'.


The older shows used tact and made sure that the message got across while still maintaining a great show for the viewer. Writing was much better, characters had depth and great arcs, and you WANTED to tune in every week to see more.

Modern TV just doesn't have the same quality or appeal.

The Orville is great, but it's really more an homage than Star Trek.

The new generation of writers and producers are much less intelligent than the previous ones were. And they make up for their lack of smarts & creativity with a massive increase in puritanical moralizing.
