It‘s good sci-fi. It‘s not Star Trek. Almost funny how Seth McFarlane‘s Orville is at its core closer to the values and themes of the original Star Trek than Discovery.

Aaaaww, a "Groundhog Day" episode! I'm always so fond of those in each and every show they all appear. But, somehow, I didn't like this one, I actually fell asleep while watching it. Mudd was too damn annoying as a character to make all the "rewinds" appealing, as they're supposed to be with this kind of episode, on other shows. It's like the writers were trying to make a Q out of Mudd, but without any of the charm or charisma. It all fell flat, in the end.
Judging by the comments around here, I know this will be an unpopular opinion, but this was the least enjoyable episode of Discovery for me, so far. Not only that, it was one of the least interesting "Groundhog Day" episodes I remember watching on any show.

Finally an episode that feels like Star Trek.

This episode was quite close to being awesome. Quite an achievement, considering how new the series is.
Sadly the storytelling still is flawed in crucial moments. This time it's when Stamets falters under pressure, exactly in that moment when they finally figured out how to get the upper hand. He has seen several hundred of deaths, why should he reveal the secret to avoid one more? It makes absolutely no sense!

Such issues aside, Sonequa is awesome and fits perfectly for that character. I had high hopes, as she was one of my favs in TWD. It seems she will exceed my expectations.

Time travel is always an A+ in my book and this is classic trek.

Best episode of the series so far I thought.

This episode finally felt like a real episode of Star Trek. There wasn't a lot of internal conflict. This episode showed us the crew of Discovery working together against a common foe. Up until now, most of the episodes have focused on a lot of in-fighting.

Star Trek is supposed to be about a hopeful future for humanity: a time when we work with each other, despite our differences.

It's a shame that they had to rip off a class Next Generation episode before it finally felt like Star Trek.

This was my least favourite episode thus far. I really love the new direction this show is taking, but the time loop episode is just a trope that has been played out. There were qualities to the episode that got it a 6/10 from me, but the time loop story itself hasn't been improved since Kelsey Grammer cameod in TNG's Cause and Effect, which, when it was new, became one of my favourite TNG episodes. But it didn't hold up to repeat viewings, and seeing it copied in other shows made me quickly tire of the trope. So it's just a boring, potentially skippable episode, if not for the developments of three of the main characters (Burnham, Stamets, and Tyler).

I hate time travel/loops/anomalies nonsense!

Well, well, well. I am a bit torn about this episode. I certainly would have liked it more without that party thing going on, it felt a little out of place with that rap music. And I don´t like that romantic thing between Tyler and Burnham. It´s forced and constructed and not what that show is in need of.
Now, the general plot of the timeloop, althought for my taste a little too close to TNGs Cause and Effect, was good. But the way they figured out that they were stuck in the loop in TNG was better. If I remember correctly (has been a while since I last saw it) it was through little clues that keep popping up.
I like the portrayal of Mudd in this installment althought I think he came back to early - maybe this episode should have come later.
