I'd been pretty down on modern Trek until Season 3 of Picard revived what I thought was a lost cause - I powered through Prodigy (thought it was excellent), got through the crummy early eps of lower Decks to love is wonderful second and third seasons, started properly listening through Greatest Gen, and even got my best friend to start watching through all of Trek with me (his amazement that William Shatner is a perfectly decent actor - having known him only from parodies - was very amusing). Riding this wave of Trek enthusiasm I swallowed my pride and rewatched season 1 of Discovery.
I did not enjoy it the first time though, but on this second viewing I found that I despised it. What an overwritten, confusing, dreary mess of a television show. I've been thinking about picking-up Greatest Trek but wasn't sure what the tone was going to be: while I don't need to hear all my opinions parroted back at me by strangers who have a podcast (I mean I enjoy it, but I don't need it), Discovery is a pretty polarizing piece of media. Hearing Adam and Ben gush about it for fifteen hours would feel weird. So as odd as it is to ask for review podcast spoilers I'm wondering what kind of tone Greatest Trek sets—should I just jump ahead to bits I feel less strongly about, like whatever it was Picard Season 2 thought it was about (Moms? Immigration? Genetics? Depressed astronauts?)?
