It is a truth universally acknowledged that Glenn and I love a good establishing shot, and Discovery provides them in spades. They're just gorgeous. And I have noticed something about them this season.
I haven't actually gone through and compiled all the examples, but Season 2 definitely has a theme going on with establishing shots that start upside down, and then right themselves on the way to the actual scene. Glenn and Valerie noted this in the Calypso review (though that one was explicitly going for being disorienting). But in the first three or four episodes of S2 there have been at least one or two examples per episode.
The ones that stand out in my memory are: 1. the Tilly half-marathon scene; 2. L'Rell addressing the High Council (or whatever that is). I know there have been a couple more but they are escaping me now. Is there something thematic about this, or is it just cool? I, for one, love how Discovery is playing a bit with the concept of "there's no up in space". Long overdue, in my opinion!
