    I’m really trying to keep an open-mind going into this, but when a ‘TV-MA’ rating shows up on screen, I get very concerned. Star Trek was never supposed to be for ‘mature audiences’.

    • Moreno Renga

      You sure? Some scenes in ST TOS has quite a lot of mature content… I think its rather about the American puritanism which becoming more restrictive and being regulated with these ratings.

      • Star Trek can’t inspire kids to be astronauts and scientists if they can’t watch it. Talking about serious topics isn’t why shows get the TV-MA label.

        “American puritanism”? I’m sorry, I’m confused? America might be light when it comes to sex, but we love our violence & murder! People have brought up that TNG also could of had an MA rating in this day and age, but how many realistically? Maybe 5 out of the whole series? I’m looking at this with open eyes. Too many fans are drinking the Kool-Aid when it comes to ST:D just because it’s new Trek. It’s ok to want to like the new series while at the same time questioning some of the decisions.

        LIE! Can’t think of one scene in ST TOS which was mature content. in the 60’s no bad words or nudity ever made it past censors.

        • SHARCRASH

          Oh yeah? HAHA former ST series had clearly explicit (partial nudity) sexual content, swearing (Picard saying “merde” in french meaning “shit”) and let’s not talk about violence whit is present in many episodes. There you go all your TV-MA but not present for the former series. As said, America’s mores have its puritanism being expanded and further enforced. Hypocrisy in all its beauty!

    I get the feeling that it probably will end up being something like “Spartacus in Space”.

  • Moondog2010

    Looking very good! Can’t wait for the premiere! Plus we get Both comedy and serious drama thanks to The Orville!

    Stop fecking geo locking the bloody trailers will you, it’s getting really really old. Yes, Netflix have the deal outside America, but me being able to watch the CBS trailer, is not going to make me cancel my netflix subscription, move to the States, and sign up for CBS, so I’m not sure what the problem is.

    • This is our penance for not having to pay for CBS.

    I enjoy the graphics upgrade… and get this is sort of in the ‘new cannon/reboot/remake’ but I’m hoping they aren’t just trying to completely copy the J.J. Abrams style just because the movies did good while taking a steaming crap on the Gene Roddenberry story-lines.

    Also feels like CBS is really banking on this being something that draws in people to their online service…

  • Andrew Krause
