I watched it yesterday It looks like Picard season one shows are going to be really good.
It's on Facebook as well.........unblocked.
Yes, but that's also something I can only watch on PC or phone, which is the reason for the annoyance in the first place.
Oh sorry. Misread your other post.
This was good stuff, and flowed much better and more naturally than its predecessors.
My only complaint was that it could have been 15 min longer.
Really cool they have him as host, he really understands the heart of TNG and asked good questions
As aftershows go, this was really good. Wheaton was an excellent choice as a host.
Even if he wasn't on Trek, Wheaton is smart and a good listener. So a good host. I wish it was longer also, and on Amazon/unblocked YT, social media too.
Obviously everyone's phone is different, but a while ago I noticed my android phone now has the casting symbol on Facebook videos so I can send them to my tv.
Interesting. Checked, and I don't, but that's possibly due to only having the "lite" version of the facebook app due to storage space issues.
He did a Titan stint? Can you what that online somewhere?
It seems that all the big media companies have already or will be adding 'casting software' to their apps this year.
We're also waiting for VIZIO to send out an update to their TV apps. so the Mr's can watch DISNEY+ on her new TV.
Right now it's a real pain to cast it from her phone to the TV.
Wil did a great job hosting this show.
The first host of "after Trek" was Matt Mira and he was good at it if a bit of a fanboy at times.
The second season host was just horrible. Attractive woman but her interviewing skills were rookie level at best "Remember that scene? what was that like?" lather, rinse, repeat for 20 minutes. Like Chris Farley from old SNL.
Wil has the Star Trek cred, the mind of a writer to dissect the show and to be able to question people intelligently and the genuine excitement of talking about something he loves.
So the only reason he'd ever be asked. Makes sense.
Wheeton needs to turn it down a notch.
Did anyone else notice how much Goldsman shat on Discovery in the interview?
He basically talked about how historically Trek was "many genres" (action, romance, comedy, etc), but they can't do that because of the serialized nature of the show. He describes Discovery as "Sci-fi action-adventure...a lot of things blowing up." and Picard as "Sci-fi drama...less things blowing up, more writing based."
He's always been a TNG fan amd it shows in how much he shat on the TOS era itself during his run on ST: D to date.
I also tjhink his comparison is a load of crap becauuse there were PLENTY of good character moments in BOTH seasons of ST: D with Sarek, Amanda, Burnham, Tilly, Pike, Spock, etc. The only thing I notice in Picard is the return of COPIOUS amounts of meaningless technobabble (see the apartment scene in Ep. 2) <-- So yeah if THAT'S what Akiva likes to 'write' - he's welcome to that crap.
I love Wil, think he's a great guy, but I just couldn't keep up the interest. Nothing on the show, I just think after shows are not my cup of tea.
And I missed the fantastic table from the Discovery after-show.
I really didn't see that as dissing, merely acknowledging the fact that the two shows have different styles, which they obviously do.
