Not a Family Star Trek: My kids are afraid to watch it before bed.
I have always enjoyed sharing science fiction and particularly Star Trek with my family. Not this series. This makes me very sad. I've never had to fast forward past problematic scenes with any other series.
I love the premise for this version and the characters in it, but since when does Star Trek get into semi porn and gore/terror? I thought I was doing a pretty good forwarding past the scary and Human/Klingon sex scenes... but one evening we were going to watch a new episode and my 11 year old son (the biggest fan of my kids) asked if we could put it off to another day because it was too close to his bedtime and he had nightmares after the last episode. I had been telling myself it was okay up to that bit of honesty on his part. The gore (surgical modification of a Human/Klingon) was really in-needed. The sex scenes between that same human and a Klingon woman were totally ridiculous. In previous series all of these things were just hinted at with a kiss etc, and that was plenty for the bountifully-imaginative audience.
Please make the next season something the whole family can share again!!!!
