Still the best Star Trek series ever.

  1. Much better than the last two episodes. They returned to the political intrigue arc.

  2. Is there a point, exactly, to creating a blog post every time you watch an episode, consisting literally of only one sentence saying that you like it?

    • I’ve watched several shows following Lion’s rec, including the first episode of Picard, which was above average if not great… I’ll probably watch the rest if his opinion continues to be very favorable

    • Yeah. To troll readers who don’t like ST. OTOH, the daily virus update was to troll me. haha It’s all good. In fact, I’m hoping that’s a result of my mischievous nature rubbing off on him. 🙂

      • It’s actually to troll people who do like Star Trek since Picard is not actually a Star Trek show.

  3. The least bad episode yet. But the piss poor writing and characterization is still annoyingly noticeable. Would the Jean Luc Picard of Star Trek ever leave Hugh behind like that to face almost certain death? Hugh didn’t even know what was going on! JL just asks for his help finding somebody and ten minutes later he’s essentially asking Hugh to die so JL and his mystery girl can teleport off the ship? And if Hugh is staying behind to shut down the Magic Borg Teleporter after JL leaves, what exactly is the point of JL’s “Sworn Shield” also staying behind to die? Either Hugh succeeds in turning off the Magic Borg Teleporter so the Romulans can’t follow them through, in which case the “Sworn Shield’s” sacrifice is pointless, or Hugh doesn’t succeed and JL would actually want his “Sworn Shield” with him wherever he’s going as the Romulans will be in hot pursuit.

    • ” Would the Jean Luc Picard of Star Trek ever leave Hugh behind like that to face almost certain death?”

      You get that the whole point of this show is that Picard is a defeated old man with a terminal illness, not a Starship captain in good health and in full control of his faculties?

      • Which lends further support to my belief that one should not trust Lion when he says this is the best Star Trek show ever. Sounds like, as I suspected, it’s more of the same CultMarx undermining of traditional mores and of the white West, subverting the image of a white male former hero by portraying him as a defeated old man.

  4. I’m surprised that Rogue Space Captain-with-mysterious-past allowed Space Legolas beam into the Borg Cube, and he knew exactly where Picard was, AND his timing could not have been more perfect. In other words, script shortcuts.

  6. It’s amazing how bad and insulting to star trek fans this show is.

    • I saw about ten minutes of that review and the biggest complaint is that Picard isn’t Star Trek. Well, what does that mean? It seems each fan has an idea of what Star Trek is really about, is unable to articulate it, and then grumbles about every new Star Trek show as not being real Star Trek. That’s not a reason.

  7. Star Trek: Picard Episodes 6,7, and 8 – re:View

    Mike lures Rich back to the legendary leather wing chairs of the re:View set to torture him some more. Mike has been drinking. Mike swears and is confused about what is happening on the train wreck TV show, Star Trek Picard. Rich wants to be in a grave and counts the days until he is there.
