Nobody is saying you can't like it. It's just strange that nobody seems to be able to offer a reason WHY they like it, whereas the people who don't, they can offer tons of reasons why.
Some of us may question how or why some can like it, but no one here has dumped on you for it.
If you see yourself in that description then I don't know what to tell you. That was a general statement aimed mostly at folks on Twitter, Youtube and media sites. Never once have I singled out a forum member to shame them for their opinions, only when they do so to others.TIL calling people apologists is not dumping on people.
Doctor M’Benga is good so far. His sick daughter is a cool twist. Though, if he was the chief medical officer under Pike, why was he just a background doctor under Kirk?
This is a general statement about all shows or movies that people say they don't like. You're just clinging to a few people and assuming everyone else is the same. We've seen Discovery and Picard. They are complete trash and we can tell you exactly why.Not sure anyone who hasn't seen the show can offer reasons as to why they don't like it.
Hearing the dialogue between M'Benga and Number One about Starfleet regulations against using genetic modified blood, I can't help but get the sense that the writers can't differentiate between the Federation and Starfleet, since the intro log entry mentioned the Federation ban against genetic modification.
Maybe he went on an extended leave and McCoy was already there when he got back? I ended up getting a long term contract after replacing someone on mat leave even once they came back.He must have f****d up big time to lose the CMO stint to McCoy when Kirk takes over the Enterprise.
A sentiment I would add is it's unnecessary to repeat the same statements over and over at every opportunity or whenever an opposing opinion is aired. This applies to those who enjoy and don't enjoy content. It comes across as badgering which makes the air negative for everyone and discourages people from contributing to or even reading threads they'd be otherwise interested in.Person A: “I don’t like this new product because the writing is bad, it dumps on the source material, and it jams politics in at every opportunity.”
Person B: “Sexist! Bigot! How dare you attack people who like this product!”
Person A: “That’s not what I said. I said the writing was bad, and that the product just isn’t very good in general, to say nothing of the other factors.”
Person B: “How dare you tell me that I can’t like this product! You’re a toxic fan with an axe to grind! If you don’t like it, don’t watch it! And if you don’t watch it, don’t bother to voice your opinions!”
Person A: “I didn’t tell you that you can’t like this product. I just wish that these things weren’t written in a way which is really shallow, dumb, and divides people. Can’t we all just get along?”
Person B: “Everything was fine until you came along with your constant hate! You just hate anything new and different, and can’t handle the fact that the product is moving forward without you!”
Person A: “…I’m pretty sure everything was fine until hack writers came along to ‘fix’ this product and ‘update it for modern audiences’. And make it much, much dumber. We shouldn’t lower our standards just because something is shiny and new and chases of-the-moment social trends. I just want this product to be high-quality, successful, and respectful to the audience and its intelligence.”
Person B: “You just can’t handle change! Stop being a hater and a sexist!”
And so on.
