I actually quite liked Picard right up to the last two episodes, which were so monumentally stupid they've retrospectively soiled the rest of it.

 

It's not as bad as Discovery, but I don't want any more of it.

That's what was so frustrating about the whole affair. There was the potential for something decent, they had the cast, the fan-pleasing appearances, an initially inviting premise and some good ideas here and there. The finale especially left me so cold I honestly couldn't trust anyone involved in this to do anything better.

Stewart describing the second season in that video as reaching new heights while standing on the shoulders of Next Generation makes me feel a little queasy. 
 

Also - that’s Whill Wheaton?!

 

Also also - where is John DeLancey? In his panic room?

 

Edit - oh, it’s his boat. Purchased with the advance on his ST: Picard fee, no doubt.

It's going to be shit. You all know it's going to be shit. Stop putting yourselves through this cycle of abuse.

 

Look, I chatted to Jean-Luc himself (well he called me) and he told me it was going to be different this time. He's changed. He knows what he did wrong and it won't happen again.

I realise I’m probably alone in this, but I thought Q was the worst thing about TNG.

 

I have a friend who absolutely can't stand him. Not sure I'd say he's the worst thing about TNG though- he's more entertaining than Klingon politics.

I wonder how little Patrick Stewart can get away with being in it this time? I'm guessing about five minutes per episode except the first and last, with lots of time spent on villains that go nowhere and Q dicking around with the rest of the crew.

He's what made TNG feel special, and was slightly embarrassing when he turned up in DS9 and Voyager.

Agreed. See also: the borg. Voyager completely ruined them and it smacked of desperation that they kept turning back to the same antagonists in the late 90s so I'm not sure why anyone's falling for it again over 20 years later. Similarly, dalek episodes are always the worst of new Dr Who. 

 

But then if you're going to have a writer's room full of creatively bankrupt cretins who can't be arsed watching more than a handful of episodes of the series they're doing a spin off of...

Star Trek Picard was the second-best sci fi TV series of 2020 in which Alison Pill played a scientist in a story involving predictions of the future and people walking around inside a big floating high-tech cube.

I was such a big Star Trek fan in the 90s. But the franchise has been ruined for me. So much so that I don't check the news sites, can't be bothered keeping with the threads in here, and I don't have it in me to even to watch the trailer.

Most of us feel that way, I think. Hence our main Trek thread is dedicated purely to the old stuff and the Disco and Picard threads are mostly just people hate-watching. 


At least Netflix makes it easier than it ever was before to watch the bits of the franchise that are actually good.
