I almost agree with you, but I cannot get over their Klingons. I mean, WTH!!! TNG & especially DS9 did so much to bring the Klingons to life and Discovery comes along and says "NO, these are Klingons!", that's a tough pill to swallow. Season 2 was so good, I chose to ignore their retcon Klingons, joined Discovery's journey and I'm not looking back.
Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of what they did with the Klingons, but I can see why they felt it needed a total reboot since the Klingon story has really been run into the ground. Especially with all of the Klingon story lines with Warf in DS9. I'm not sure how much else they could have done with it that wouldn't have just been the same old stuff. But, I do wish they had done something different like maybe lean on the connections with Feudal Japan a bit more.
But, despite not liking how they re-imagined the Klingons, I still think the story lines for season 1 were more interesting than a lot of the stuff in the past. And they seem to have avoided making a bunch of filler episodes to makes sure they have a show that runs enough weeks to get ratings for CBS. It's nice to have a Star Trek show that actually progresses the overall story like every week instead of having a bunch of filler episodes that do nothing for the story and mean that the production values and acting is worse because they are so rushed to put out a certain number of shows ever year.
