I only found this show accidentally (History and Discovery are about the only channels where nowadays I regularly watch reruns of some documentary shows I've found in the past year or so, so skim through at least prime time sporadically, and found this due to it being after the ridiculous-but-entertaining UnXplained show.)

I've seen lots of Trek documentaries, but did learn a few new things in this ep... or at least re-learned. I knew about some people being on Roddenberry's previous show, but I didn't know about Nichelle being on it (on an unaired ep).. and I forgot, they told something else about Roddenberry before he was a cop.. I remembered him being a cop.

Seriously? You get to watch the first episodes with your paid cable or satellite subscription and then you have to pay more for a separate streaming service to watch the rest of the series? No wonder piracy has become so popular.
I suggest you keep a OP for it, set to New & Reruns.

Despite Discovery's streaming service apparently being even more successful than they had expected, at least *some* of the supposedly streaming "exclusive" shows did air on the regular channel.. The one I can think of offhand being an entire season of Battlebots.

So I wouldn't doubt if it EVENTUALLY does air on regular cable (though I would fear it would be edited for time).

I would pay (at least sporadically) for more of these streaming services if they allowed me to watch faster than realtime.. I'm serious.. I watched this show at 1.7x and enjoyed it a lot. If I could watch streamed faster than realtime, I'd probably pay for discovery+ too.

Ep 2 was ok. It focused on the animated series. I remember seeing some eps when I was a child. As such, a lot of info in ep 2 was unknown to me.

Maybe I'll go and rewatch TAS when I find some time.
It actually makes me want to watch TAS more. I've tried watching TAS a few times, even tried to get my Trek Group watching it some recent-ish year.. couldn't really get into it. I knew there were "real sci fi" authors and such, and I can't even think of exactly what in this episode made it sound more interesting to try again... but I might.

It was funny how much adult/serious stuff they got into the show!

Hrm. so that's what its all about. I saw it in the guide and episode 1 is supposed to air here this week.

Just seems silly that it's happening all at once - Prodigy, Discovery and now this all airing on a single day.
Wait, we're talking about the OLD animated series, discussed in the latest episode of this documentary show. It sounds like you're talking about the new animated series(es)?

The last two episodes that aired on TV so far seemed slightly different than the previous episodes.. they seemed a LOT more funny.. and I thought it was great that they actually paid for clips of other shows/movies they mentioned -- AND those clips were involved in their narrator jokes too.
