  1. I'm curious about the Star Trek thing as well. I will say, if it's done properly, I WOULD join CBS All Access just to watch it.

  2. I wouldn't be *completely* shocked if the CBS All Access thing is just out there as a feeler to gauge reaction. The response I've seen has been overwhelmingly negative. Perhaps they're hoping for fans to campaign to get it on "real" TV, earning them some free publicity.

    1. Depends on what you think their intention is, I guess.
