Talking

I'd sign up for CBS All Access right this minute if they have Geordi on the show and it turns out he's spent this entire time on the holodeck, fake-married to a holo-Leah Brahms

Yeah episode 6 was awesome. It’s really picking up steam. Riker should appear next episode.

I think my favorite thing about Picard so far is that it carries the story forward while going to great lengths to honor the older series. The connections to old characters and tons and tons of easter egg references to old Trek make my heart happy, but it also avoids being blatant fan service.

like the magic gate thing that can send the borg queen 40k lightyears away was assimilated from a species Voyager encountered in the Delta Quadrant and there was an episode about them trying to use it

Unhappy

I would just like to admit, in what I hope is a safe environment, that I knew Leah Brahms's name off the top of my head

This has been weighing on me for a couple days now and I feel it's best I be truthful

Looks like we're gearing up for Picard's crew, the Romulan fleet, and the Borg cube to show up at either the synth planet or the conclave of 8 at the end of the season. I read season 2 and 3 have already been green-lit and will be filmed together. It will be very interesting to see where they take the story next.

i like this series a lot. I want a Seven of Nine Borg Queen series next!

But I will settle for the upcoming Pike Enterprise series

I'm a bit disappointed that the Borg cube did not actually have any greater purpose. Seven took control only to have all/most of the un-reclaimed drones ejected into space, then she took the cube to the synth planet only to have it pulled down by a bunch of flowers

You can now get a free month of CBS Whatever, if you use the promo code "GIFT" when you sign up, now through April 23

So there's no particular reason not to try the show, unless, like, nothing you've heard about it has interested you much

well, I sort of enjoyed it, but it was a very clear quest for nostalgia to me. you get to see some of the TNG crew members, Picard says 'make it so' a couple of times, the people get what they want.

but it wasn't great :/

The ending was the only part I really had an issue with. The last episode felt rushed because they tried to wrap up all the plot arcs neatly. I understand why the writers may have felt like they had to do this in case the show didn't get renewed, but I found it disappointing. I assume the second and third season will be an entirely different story.

he just kept watching & watching in one long incredibly unbroken session moving from series to series so that no one had a chance to interrupt it was really quite hypnotic

ok i just finished it and i gotta say i'm really pumped they made it.

here are my unsorted thoughts:

SPOILERS of course





- the theme music was WEAK SAUCE compared to TNG. come on man, how can people sing along to this? this gets no one's blood pumping. original all the way

- really liked the opening with picard not wanting the game to end, lingering in the moments with Data

- they used a pretty light touch with Data, only sprinkling him in here and there, but the ending especially i thought was beautiful and it was such a better way to say goodbye to him than the last movie

- it was jonesing for some more of the orignial cast, it wasn't until episode 7 until riker and troi were back. couldn't have been more pleased with those scenes/episodes though. i don't think they did 'nostalgia porn', they were fairly restrained

- in the last ep when picard died, i actually wasn't moved, and i'm not sure why.. honestly it could have been the fact that on this particular episode, and this one only, the streaming was interrupted several times by buffering, really weird, and maybe that's what took me out of it. but i don't think that was quite it.. the ep was kind of rushing around and that happened suddenly.. but the simulation with data and when Data he aged.. man that was legit

- there were various plot points that were annoying here and there, but.. i mean it's star trek and overall the quality was great

- kind of interesting, the contrast between modern, 10 episode television seasons with a big arc, vs. the 26 episode seasons of days past where the quality naturally wasn't as much there.. kind of cool to see the modern style imposed on the old franchise

- the scenes with original cast members back really made it for me and emphasized how excellent that original cast is.. you can do so much with so little, because of all the groundwork that has been laid... would have loved to see geordi and warf and crusher, etc..

- excited there will be a season 2. well done overall, my gripes are minor, especially since this was unexpected, and it was so nice to revisit spend time in a franchise that's been idle for 18 years, pretty special!

- OH! that scene when he first meets up with Raffi at her house.. the Vasquez Rocks... that's what it's really called, and i had my engagement photos taken there

ok that's my initial thoughts.

That final scene in the simulation choked me up

Mixed bag but definitely good overall
