Maybe this is more like the Hulu model. As a viewer, I'd probably prefer just to see this show on CBS in the first place.

This effort might be smart for CBS, but that remains to be seen. To my own viewing habits, I have no desire to watch this show on a phone or tablet, so I don't care about the on-the-go convenience of a streaming service that has only one show I'll probably ever watch. I want to watch this on my inch screen in my living room with my wife, so the key point for me will be a quality HD viewing experience with ease-of-use for streaming it to my large screen.
CBS All Access is available on Chromecast, Roku, FireTV, and others, so that should make it reasonably easy, albeit not as easy as getting it through my cable set-top box. And if I'm paying a subscription fee for it, I would hope there would be no in-program ads, but from what I gather that's not likely to be the case, which is unfortunate.
The new series will be set in the prime universe, not the reboot universe, and will take place about 10 years before the TOS five-year mission. I like the decision to go back to the prime universe. It just allows for this to feel more of a piece with what Star Trek has been for 50 years rather than an extension of the still-bareboned universe of the films or, worse, a third universe under a second reboot.
I wonder how they will establish the return to the prime universe onscreen for those who don't follow such things behind the scenes. I'm guessing those people won't care, or will have heard about it already, but to canonize it, maybe it's simply a matter of casually mentioning something simple, like the continued existence of Vulcan?
Star Trek had the luxury of Spock Prime giving us the exposition to establish the timeline reset.
Discovery won't likely have that luxury, so it will probably be pretty straightforward. As for the time period, I do wonder if setting the series before TOS will box the show into limitations of what it can do with the existing history, a la being a Star Trek: Enterprise prequel, as opposed to moving it later in time to, say, the 25th centurywhich could've explored new avenues within the all-encompassing history of the latter-day Trek series.
Then again, working within parameters doesn't mean you can't creatively do any number of new things, and one could argue that setting the show after DS9 and Voyager could actually box the series into even more limitations because of the additional documented history the show would be beholden to. This one simply comes down to what they choose to do and how they execute it. The show's lead character will be female, but not a captain. She'll be a lieutenant commander.
I'm guessing this means she is not commanding the ship, which presumably still has a captain, and the captain is merely not the main character.
If this is the case, this could allow a fresh perspective on the typical assumptions made of Trek, where the lead is typically assumed to be the commanding officer. If we're instead seeing this from the perspective of someone in "middle management," that could be an interesting take on the lead character's point of view. And this doesn't necessarily need to represent a seismic shift. Making the main character a non-captain need not change that by too much.
That is, unless she's a lieutenant commander and in command of the ship, in which case I have no idea what this actually means. The season will be 13 episodes long, and will highlight a continuing arc storyline. A episode limit is probably a good move, especially if the season is primarily a single arc. While the limit to 13 episodes was likely more a financial decision given the risk in putting this on CBS All Access, I think shorter seasons are simply the better and more realistic TV reality of today, especially for serialized shows.
With as many choices people have, giving them more than 13 episodes in a season seems like a risky move for keeping people interested, and a risky move in a writing staff creatively sustaining it. Myself — I'd rather have short seasons that are of a high quality than more episodes. I think telling a story arc is the inevitable move, and probably more interesting than the anomaly-of-the-week route.
Though splitting the difference and doing both serialized and standalone episodes like Battlestar Galactica's first season could be very workable. It just all depends on execution.
A show doesn't have to be completely serialized to respect the continuity that came in previous episodes. The audience just needs to know that these things matter, especially from a character standpoint. But season-long arcs are common for TV lately, and they're not without precedent in Trek. DS9's later seasons, while episodic, had a long-term arc in the background even when it wasn't explicitly doing multi-episode stories.
The same goes for Enterprise's third season. Given the audience and the delivery method — appealing to a lot of completists using an on-demand service that will make all the previous episodes easily available — a season-long arc is the logical choice.
Hopefully they will write a good story that can maintain momentum through the entire season. The story arc driving the season will be an incident in Starfleet's history that has been referenced but never fully explored. Die-hard fans "should be very happy. It's something I want to see," Fuller said. Actually that might be why he seemed in a bad mood. He'd got Frank Oz's hand up his bum. I wasn't really a fan of the Bourne films although I quite enjoyed them all including the slightly pants Jeremy vehicle.
They seemed to have the scale of a Bond movie, especially when it came to stunts. The back-story was intriguing and Matt Damon played it well and even if they are a little bit too po-faced they were watchable. And this one fits in well. Great locations, eye catching stunts and car chases of mass destruction.
The last one trashes more cars than the Blues Brothers and even ends up with a car in a truck. The scene in Athens was supposed to be shot during a real riot. I think there's some footage from riots but I don't think the actors were anywhere near.
I don't even think it's Athens. And the steadicam thing is bloody annoying. I thought we'd seen the end of it. I saw this on a massive screen and I had no idea what was going on at times. My head was twitching. It seems to be a summer for OK films.

Jason Bourne was OK too. I was not to be. I also had Sky Sports News on with the sound down. Every tie I tuned into the TV they were saying it was all Wednesday.
But as time went on all the reports said they were coming more and more into it and by the time they equalised there was only going to be one winner. Nobody seemed to think it was oing to penalties.
This game highlights problems we have in some games. Firstly we don't seem to able to punish weaker opposition. Last season we lost to all the newly promoted teams when we played them at their place. Secondly we had many games last season where we completely dominated, especially in the first half. We wouldn't score or just go ahead by the single goal and then proved incapable of finishing them off.
I hope it's not the same this year.
