    Default Re: Patrick Stewart is back as Captain Picard!

    I’m still watching, but I’m having a very difficult time getting immersed in it, it’s just not really grabbing me. Everything is moving at a slow pace and quite frankly, is rather boring. I’m only watching at this point because it’s Stewart as Picard, and with the hopes that the next episode is going to be the one that breaks this series open.

Picard would probably only know of Seven since she arrived back in the alpha quadrant with Voyager.

    I agree, once again.

    Surprised to be saying we did indeed have it so much better under Berman and Braga. I wonder what they'd do with the production values of TV today. Imagine those old shows with today's effects, real locations, sets built to today's standards with today's digital expansions, better costumes, better 'angry villagers' crowd scenes, proper music scores.

    My wife and I think Picard is better than Discovery (and we like Discovery) I attribute that to the nostalgia factor of Picard and bringing back past characters. But at least Trek fans are less 'hate' filled than Star Wars fans. Star Wars fans can be somewhat unhinged at times...

    There seems to be far fewer of us in general. The greater the quantity the more likelihood of there being....riff-raff.

    Yeah, I ponder that also. As far as this series goes, I want to at least make it to the episode where Riker makes an appearance, and see where it’s at at that point and how much of a role he will play.

    All too true. Even though I’m not completely thrilled with it so far, this web series by no means ruined Captain Picard for me, TNG, and ultimately, my beloved childhood.

    I missed this post, but that is a good point that didn’t occur to me. I knew the cursing felt a bit out of place for a reason. It really wasn’t in anything Star Trek before so that’s why obviously, but I forgot that this was actually touched on a bit in IV like you say, where cursing was like a completely foreign language to them and intimated that it had been phased out of everyday dialect.

    I don’t mind it, it isn’t a dealbreaker for me when it comes to enjoying the series or not, but it does feel out of place for Star Trek.

    Oh I'll keep watching aswell. Something to do. And yeah I want to see if there's anything that can salvage it.

    And IV still kept it family-friendly. ''Double dumba$$ on you''

    So Kirk's crew are totally taken aback by mild linguistic rudeness from the 1980s and in Picard's time - (but only his elderly years for some reason) Starfleet Admirals are telling him to **** off! I feel like this needs an actual in-universe explanation.

    Regardless, it's just coming across as juvenile. *Snicker* We curse now (they curse now?!!!*) Huh huh hehe heh hehe. Now all the cool hip young people will like us.

    *to borrow the Star Wars gag

    They think having a show in a streaming service automatically requires it to be for more mature audiences. And to them, that means more violence, cursing, substance abuse and sex. It's annoying TBH.

    Although McCoy was pretty well versed in cursing. In III he referred to Spock as a “green-blooded son of a *****,” not to mention all of his uses of damn, dammit, or hell.

    It’s ironic how I said a few days ago that I keep watching with the hope that the next episode will be the one that breaks this series open, because I feel tonight’s episode may have been the “okay, now we’re starting to get somewhere” episode that I was referring to. This is the only episode thus far that actually has me looking forward to the next episode to see what happens. Color me intrigued now.

    I also can’t help but think this series, at least this episode, was directed by Quentin Tarantino.
