Advertisements That's part of it but I think his influence on the new Star Trek shows is more pronounced. Which causes more problems. I don't think he's done that good a job with Discovery and Picard. But it's some of his other tv shows which I truly dislike, particularly the ones for CBS (which airs Clarice). Scorpion and Hawaii Five-O were the most egregious offenders. Salvation got pretty bad as well. Limitless wasn't completely terrible and Sleepy Hollow was a lot of fun but I don't think he had much to do with the actual writing on those shows. (I suspect that part of the problem is that he's no longer working with Roberto Orci.) So yeah, I go into a Kurtzman production on the skeptical side.
