    Ay Caramba would be like Rios saying Oh shucks! Instead of Shit! Or Oh fudge instead of F---K!
    It's way to soft and cartoony-cliche safe for Rios, Rios seems he'd be more than comfortable using the real word straight up Carajo! (or stronger; J---r!)
    He's already used Me Cago en...D! (edit and just caught ep.9 Puta Madre and Malparido!:lol:)
    With a show that has no problem dropping f-bombs, it's inevitable we'll get one, if he hasn't already.
    Looking at you Emmet.

    I think they should add Luis Suarez as Rios buddy for the show - the Zhat Vash would be shit-scared :D

    LOL! ^ Maybe a Southern-Cone holo-trio of strikers Messi, Suárez and Rios.
    Although he may identify more with the English players.
    Anyone catch Rios playing football with the synthetic-flower-children.

    It scares me to think about the possibility of an uncountable number of Neymar holograms...

    I have seen Santiago Cabrera with Harry Kane, though!

    No. I'm natural born "Ossi" from Germany.
    But I heard Jonathan del Arco is born in Uruguay. Cabrera is from Chile.
    As to Uru-Guru: I came up with this term after listening to Metal Guru by T-Rex, just after World Cup 2018. When Mexico kicked the German's butt I changed my colors......



    This one was war - at least from 1.10 onwards..... With the legendary a$$ grabbing scene involving Gonzalo Jara and Edinson Cavani. You can't see anything in this video. It has been censored for American spectators :D. Rios would have kicked Jara's coj****.

    Santiago posted a cute little vid on Instagram of him playing ukelele and singing (and encouraging everyone to stay home)

    No way to predict when S2 is likely to go into production, the state of the world being what it is, but I note that the Rios hair and beard are on their way back.

    So does Rios now pack up all the EHs now that he has a real crew?
    Even the EEH (Ian) replaced with a Deus-Ex ship-repair device.

    Or do people want to see them all stick around (as Emergency back-up crew) ?

    I want to see all of the different Rios incarnations - I'm holo addicted like Reg :D. I'd like so see Santiago in the role of one of the Musketeers, though!

    They’re for emergencies so I’m sure the holos will be around.

    This Musketeer scene simply needs a remake: with Rios and Raffi instead of Geordi and Riker. And we know, one of them has experience ;).

    I was surprised that they didn't show up at the end even if it was just for Picard to "Not now!" them.

    I did like one aspect of the season finally, which tied nicely to the introduction of Rios, in particular the book he was reading.
    It all seemed to come back to that.
    Anticipated by the last question asked above ^ , I believe was during Rios' intro ep. 2
    In the end Data struggles with the same.
    After Data reveals his consciousness continues to still exist through the synths, though many may desire immortally, he still wishes to die in order to learn what it is to be truly human.
    Which nicely ties right back to the book that Rios was reading, The Tragic Sense of Life, by Unamuno. That pretty much narrates, that in order for life to have true experience and meaning it must be aware it's finite. Only with the knowledge of inevitable death that we give life and purpose true value.
    And Picard and Data's conversation alludes to Data's awareness of his pursuit and wish of allowing for death, in order to gain purpose.
    It is this awareness in the end, that gives his life purpose.

    So how consistent is he with his holo-controls.
    Anyone detect a pastern yet, or is he all over the place?
