The only thing worse than Discovery, are rabid Discovery apologists. Now I'm not saying that any of you guys fall into that category, but people who blindly defend this show are akin to religious fanatics who are able to believe two contradictory things at the same time.
People can like what they like. No need to shame them for it.
That said, I gave up in season 2, then after S3 started, watched through S2 to get to S3 and then gave up on that.
Discovery should really be named: Michael Burnham: A Star Trek Retcon story
"In an increasingly fractured Federation, discover the heroic tales of Michael Burnham on USS Discovery. Super-intelligent adoptive human sister of Spock, watch as she repeatedly disobeys orders and the chain of command, single handedly saves the crew over and over, can solve numerous problems requiring diverse specialties, and become the central figure shaping the entire future of the galaxy."
Also: watch as Tilly gets promoted to 1st officer despite being a young junior crew member, under-qualified and, based on her previous actions and emotional make-up, entirely unsuited to the role.
Her name isn't Michael Burnham. It's Mary Sue.

after having finished the third season (and likely my last). "Star Trek Discovery's third season was an unmitigated disaster. Both the story and dialog was not only atrocious, but an absolute insult to Star Trek's lore made worse by the Gene Roddenberry quote they slap on the screen at the end of the season finale as if that somehow makes it all better. The irony is the quote talks about talking, dialog, and communication, while the season spent most of its time slapping and punching and blowing things up. So yeah, I'm done with it."
