Quick Thoughts: Star Trek Picard

This is going to be really short, because I don’t have the time or energy for a full review (which is coming, to be sure), nor the screenshots I thought I had. But, to be quick about it:

This show sucks. Like, seriously, it sucks.

At first I thought it wasn’t too bad. And it wasn’t. Just a bit slow, and nonsensical. But still watchable. But then it got worse.

It was never Star Trek, really. Sure, it had some characters that were in Star Trek, in the past. But the show itself is just some random sci-fi show that they slapped a Trek skin on.

And it’s not even a good random sci-fi show. The plot is so full of holes, it makes swiss cheese envious. The dialog was generally very bad, especially as the show went on. The editing isn’t very good. The effects are passable, barely, and don’t even feel Trek-like. Everything is anachronistic.

Just a sucky show.
