Re: Do flaws make good characters great?

I don't know. There often seems to be a bit of double standard when people criticize the new movie and the modern era in general. Consider:

NuTrek: A young, reckless Kirk gets into a bar fight. He grows up a little and later becomes captain of the Enterprise.

TNG: A young, reckless Picard gets into a bar fight. He grows up a little and later becomes captain of the Enterprise.

Seems like the same basic narrative to me. Heck, the cocky, devil-may-care youth who grows up to be a leader of men dates back to Shakespeare at least. It's an old, old story, not some pernicious new trend.
