Episode Nine / Ten – “Et In Arcadia Ego” Pts 1 And 2 So Picard is a Cylon. Huh. When, at the end of episode eight, I pleaded for the series to fix its basic ability to tell a story I didn’t actually expect that to happen. And lo and behold it didn’t. Episode Nine … Continue reading “Star Trek: Picard – Season 1, Episode Nine/Ten”
I couldn’t even be bothered to find an image for this episode Episode Eight – ShrugI mean, I did watch it but I’m not motivated to say a lot more than that, really. It was just a bunch of expoisition vomited on screen in the usual structureless way. The Grief World, though? Really? That’s the … Continue reading “Star Trek: Picard – Season 1, Episode Eight”
Episode Seven – “Nepenthe“ I really wanted to start this episode with a two-word review – “nothing happens”. But that’s not true. Plenty of things happen, though they’re mostly low-key, character stuff. That’s fine though at episode seven, whether “low-key” is really what Picard should be aiming for is certainly up for debate. But let’s … Continue reading “Star Trek: Picard – Season 1, Episode Seven”

There has been a legitimate line of questioning around this ever since Discovery brought Star Trek back from the televisual hinterland of syndication. One of Star Trek‘s strengths has always been its ability to appeal to people beyond a hardcore of fandom – that’s why it’s the biggest … Continue reading “Star Trek: Picard – Season 1, Episode Six”
Episode Five – “Stardust City Rag” A lot of the successes of Picard so far have tended to feel a little abstract – a bit more in-theory good and a bit less in-practice good. Stewart is obviously great and we have a series of intriguing mysteries, but one of the frustrations of the show is being able … Continue reading “Star Trek: Picard – Season 1, Episode Five”
Episode Four – Absolute Candour This is a show which is absolutely split down the middle at the moment. Which is to say, to be blunt, the stuff with Picard – even if it doesn’t always make the most logical sense – broadly works at least in part because, well, Patrick Stewart is on screen, … Continue reading “Star Trek: Picard – Season 1, Episode Four”
Episode 3 – “The End Is The Beginning” More of the same. Any Other Business: • OK fine, I’m being a bit facetious. But really, I don’t know what more to say about this episode, it’s just Episode 2 but more. Picard speech, Stuff On A Cube, you know. • Um. I mean, it’s not … Continue reading “Star Trek – Picard: Season 1, Episode Three”
