    I love all those programmes, but, and this is purely a personal thing, I don't see much point in buying them on Blu-ray, as you can download that stuff for free on the net, or watch it on YouTube. Plus, I tend to like action/sci-fi films and/or stuff that shows off the home-cinema system well, as that always puts a big GRIN on my chops!

    Setting it’s scene and laying out its premise can initially seem off putting if you view it in terms of the 80’s/90’s Trek mindset...its not episodic like those shows..but the payoff is that it gets to the fundamentals of what makes Trek “Trek” in a bold new way which, imo (unfortunately), put off some ‘stuck in their ways’ fans.
    A lot of the bad press came from this.

    I’d ask, what’s more “Trek” in concept than growing and developing?
    Just not in a JJ Abrahm’s Way...

    History will judge it well, judged as an entire series it’s Terrific and absolutely canon.
    The last 2 minutes of the final episode is, well, a TOS fans wet dream.
    And Season 2 continues this.

    Just like Breaking Bad, I envy anyone seeing it for the first time.
    Nods, unfortunately the Klingon bollocks has put many off, and I include myself in that. Anyway I will save this to Christmas.
    Regards Neil
