No it isn't.
Brooks is no Patrick Stewart.
Patrick Stewart is no "Patrick Stewart" either.
He doesn't do emotion. At all. And that should be a prerequisite for anyone who is lauded as much as he is.
Frankly, I'd take Brooks's overacting in what is meant to be an incredibly uncomfortable situation over Stewart supposedly "crying" over the loss of his family any day.
