Another 8, but elevated to 9 by Alison Pill.
Seriously anybody is interested in finding out that Picard was from an abusive family? What a pathetic way to take the character at the end of the journey.
It kind of already happened in TNG.
Yes. Makes him more understandable especially early on when he was such an arrogant prick.
Have fun with it then.
I’m having plenty of fun with this season, thanks.
Better than TNG Picard. So, yes, I will enjoy psychoanalyzing this.
I like character stuff.
"Family(TNG)" established his brother Robert was a jealous bully who liked to pretend he was the guardian of the family's legacy and "Tapestry(TNG)" showed us that his father Maurice could be a scolding and disapproving man who didn't want Jean-Luc to enlist in Starfleet.
And we needed more of that! I guess they found their target audience then.
More of what? Characters who aren't from perfect families? People who have struggles?
People like Spock, Riker, Paris and Yar?
Hell, in the Kelvin Timeline Kirk lost his father on the day he was born and his uncle was an abusive asshole who forbade him to touch the family's antique 20th century sportscar.
And Troi, who lost her father at a young age and has a controlling mother.
Right, but we've got Kore for that. Though...I wouldn't be too surprised if the fan-theory that the Soong males are all cloned off the same genetic info gets hinted at before the end of the season. It parallels interestingly with the audience being shown all of the previous Kore iterations, all the female Soongs, being identical to each other as well.
Rios lives on ships and doesn't have a farm...?
He deactivated the Emergency Farmer Hologram, Ephram.
This week, we received another interesting episode, which was entertaining to watch and well acted thoroughly. It wasn't really an action episode, but had that kind of energy going on with it. Frakes once again proves that he has a great visual eye, that shot of Agnes walking in the city was a beautiful one.
Speaking of Agnes, I'm glad they have given Alison Pill her time to shine, she has become my favorite character this season from this show. It might come with a expense of few other characters, but it's definitely worth it. I can see where the story is going now, and I'm exited to see the last four episodes.
8/10. The lowest score from me this season, but still going strong.
Sounds like I’m the only one finding this season tedious
I’ve stopped and started this episode and still not through it
Didn’t know what to with Dhaj so we made her Kore. Elnor is the action superhero from season 1, don’t know what to do with him, kill him off temporarily. Get Brent Spiner back as yet another Soong. Picard is 80 but it’s ok that he’s hitting on Laris-who-isn’t-Laris who is about 45. Plus Picard struggles to say his lines above a hoarse, slow whisper. Unfortunately he’s a shadow of what he was.
Not quite as bad as The Book of Boba Fett but getting there
Can’t wait for Strange New Worlds
I don’t see him hitting on her.
oh wow. I find his acting fantastic.
nope, me too. Im surprised that everyone in these parts seems to be enjoying it. Im happy for them - I wish I was getting something out of it.
Maybe Kurtzmann-Trek isn’t for me anymore. I’ve been getting into stupid arguments on the socials defending Disco and Picard from the angry hordes since Disco started, but now I think I’m switching sides. Discovery this season was hilariously awful - cloying, insipid, dull. The first two episodes of Picard were astonishingly good but since then it just feels like a waste of time.
Everyone looked nice in their ball gowns and suits though, so I’m glad the cast are having fun.
