Already 3am here.
Same. Minus the having to be up at 6:30 part. I was crazy enough to do this with Picard right before the premiere, because I felt the same way I did before I went to my high school reunion a few years earlier. It felt like reconnecting with people I hadn't "seen" in 20 years and catching up with them. And the thing I was most looking forward to was seeing how it would make up for the TNG Movies. Which I thought it ended up doing in spades.
But with Lower Decks, if I'm up to see it, it was because of insomnia. But I wouldn't count on it. I'm pretty tired right now. It's even more humid than usual, super-hot even with air conditioning, and it's making me drowsy. No way am I going to make it. And, like I said, there's not the urge of "I have to see it now!!!" like there was with Picard.
I just watched TNG Lower Decks again in anticipation of tonight
No Lol! Just a very good opening song/music! Very much like TNG!
TNG is my top teir, and after that it flucuates depending my mood. Ofte. Times Enterprise pops into 2nd place...I like how simple and easy going the show feels at times.
I don't feel bad fot thinking Orville is like peak Trek
Did we hear it in the little clips they posted?
Screw it. I'm up for 'til it airs. Insomnia got the better of me. I give it a 13 out of 10.
It's up. I'm putting it on now.
The intro alone is worth it! XDDD
I like the intro, the characters have good chemistry, it's not afraid to be silly, it couldn't be less like DSC or PIC if it tried...
... so far it's what I expected. Not bad. Buttheytalkreallyfast! Justsoyouknow!
EDIT: The aliens-of-the-week look like Care Bears. () Anyone who's my age-ish will pick up on that immediately.
DOUBLE-EDIT: Finished the episode. That was fun. I'm still learning the characters' names. It's hard to rate this, since it's so different from the other two series and I don't have my bearings on it yet. But I'm going to go with a 7.
That intro was great. This creator is really a TNG fan.
That was amazing. It might be my favorite Star Trek series premiere now. Star Trek: Voyage Home even got a reference.
I love how quickly paced this show is. The quips just came flying and McMahn really does know his TNG. Did I even see the Encounter and Farpoint Jelly Fish in the This Season trailer? If they can bring back some of those obscure things and have this kind of storytelling, it's going to be a fun and wild ride. I so can't wait to get deeper into this season.
Cute. The characters were more likable/less annoying than I feared. Will tune in again next week.
Everything about this feels right to me. I want to see more.
"Space whales" is your ST4 reference? They were earth humpback whales.
Just watched Lower Decks "Second Contact ". Painful. Hard to watch. Hated the story and the animation. I mainly hated the voice acting. People speak two sentences, literally one after the other, not even a breath between words or pauses. It annoyed me.
Which traveled 300 years into the future, so yeah I say they were space whales. Also, so what. It was a fun reference.
How the hell are we supposed to rate the episode if the poll closed YESTERDAY and the show just dropped
1. Keep Calm, take a deep breath. 2. Refresh the page, the poll is open now. I just opened it.
