* I liked episode 2 much more than episode 1.
* The acting is very good. I put this partly down to impressive directing as well.
* I appreciate that the script (for the most part) is willing to use more old-fashioned words and syntax. Occasional modernisms like “That’s not an option” ring a tin bell for me, but they’re few.
* I really like the original characters, and I suspect my favorite bits of the show are likely to be those that focus on original characters or original + canon, while the canon + canon scenes are more likely to irritate me due to how far afield they are from the source material. (Given that apparently a condition of the sale of rights was sticking with canon in major points, I’m astounded at how very far afield some of this feels.)( Cut for length–no significant spoilers )
