Newer Star Trek series

Do any of you watch the newer Star Trek series like Discovery or Picard? I watched the first episode of each of these and I didn't care for them. And I'm not inclined to pay for a streaming service to watch them since they are not available otherwise. The newest one that will be available in May is Strange New Worlds which is the Enterprise under the command of Christopher Pike. It sounds like it might be interesting. But Discovery and Picard seemed so bleak and so unlike Star Trek I was used to.

I read that in this new incarnation of Trek that Spock will be getting a canonical first name (S'chn T'Gai) and just like the ones for Uhura and Sulu, it came from a Trek novel.

I have to admit that I do not watch any of these series. I did watch a lot of the first generation of Star Trek reboots and really enjoyed TNG, but the Star Trek series lost me when J. J. Abrams blew up the planet Vulcan and had Spock and Uhura hooking up.

I feel the same way about the JJ Abrams version of Trek and these newer shows.
