I agree completely, but I like Discovery. There are just a few things about it that I wish were different. We’re four episodes in, I don’t know of many shows that hit their stride after four eps.
As for comparison to TOS, I’m not sure that any show will ever achieve the status of TOS in my mind. But that’s a product of many things: Nostalgia, the formative years during which I was exposed to TOS, the influence it had on my life, the general coolness and prescience of the TOS technology, the incredible writing. The science. The overall philosophy. TOS was a phenomenon. Hell, it still is.
It was one of those magic things that happens when a bunch of circumstances bring a remarkable group of people together and they create something utterly amazing. Not many shows are ever going to stack up to that.
