    Thank you for the article, I had never heard of this show before and it does sound interesting. It seems to be following the trend on several TV channels here that chronicle the jobs that never made it to the screen before. An example of this is both "Highway Through Hell" and "Heavy Rescue: 401" that follow tow truck operators and the things they do in a day.

    They should look at the success of other animated shows that tackled mature themes like both Avatar series, Adventure Time, Stephen Universe (to a lesser extent), My Little Pony FiM and others. Just because your target audience is a young demographic doesn't mean that the content has to be dumbed down for kids.

    Hell, right out of the gate in season 1, My Little Pony tackled mental illness (Party of One), Racism (Bridle Gossip), and Peer Pressure and Stress (Suited for Sucess)

    I really hope CBS doesn't go the dumb down route. One of the things I like about the latest Trek is their willingness to take risks, and they should take some with this new series.

    Until recently I really did think it was just gonna be a kind of a throw away comedy piece to bolster CBS's Trek content, which was fine. Finding out how they planned on treating it with the respect that fans do, made it all the better for me. I think Trek is at it's best when it mixes humor into the mix.
