Good tv show, but it's pretty dark for a Star Trek TV show
Ok so DO NOT GET ME WRONG. This show is great! It symbolizes an African American, female leader (which hasn't been done before by Star Trek tv shows). However this 2017 version is not your classic 60s Kirk. There is gruesome violence with dead bodies, a disturbing rape by a klingon to a main cast member (which 15 seconds in I couldn't bear to watch itanymore), and there are a fair share of curse words. So if you plan on showing this to your eight year olds to share your love of Star Trek when you were their age, THINK AGAIN. This is best to share your love of Star Trek to your HIGH SCHOOLERS. And BTW I'm only aloud to watch this because my mom and I were anticipating this for years before we knew about it's dark material AND WE DIDN'T WANT TO BE LET DOWN BY IT'S MATURE RATING. So if you still want to watch this series, WATCH IT BEFORE YOU WATCH IT WITH YOUR KIDS, and BE READY FOR SOME CONVERSATIONS AFTER EACH EPISODE. One more thing: If your kid is like me and can handle more mature stuff then I wouldn't let this review ruin your Star Trek experience, on the other hand, be careful with this series. But overall a great lesson can be learned with just the right maturity level.
