Re: PIC S1: The Impossible Box

Reco the haters stop paying and stop watching. Your lives will be better and you could even survive Coronavirus with less stress on your system not having to worry about Star Trek Picard.

Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

Your answer is as shitty as the writing and Bergman’s treatment of his audience. Haha? Really my man?

Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

Yes @Dave in MN why not address the shitty writing of Best of Both Worlds Part 1?

Mr. LaForge was just seen ushering his team out of engineering with an arm waving gesture as the emergency bulkhead doors were closing. Is not Mr. LaForge derelict in duty if he left his station with 11 wounded and 8 dead? What kind of writing has him showing up on the bridge with a clean uniform and what type of writing has them ignore those casualties? Terrible writing that you give are giving a pass.

Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

@Descent
In the 80s and 90s the use of token characters was prominent as a way of gaining cultural nods. Corporate teams were encouraged to have specific numbers of diversity candidates and hires. Let us not pretend this did not happen or exist, and Star Trek had its acceptable numbers. South Park has a black character named Token, for a reason. Today it’s referred to as virtue signaling.

Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

@Dave in MN,
I give a very reasoned, on point example of the non-subtle difference between 1980 and 2020 Star Trek, and what we are to accept over the 40 year expanse. Rather than address what I point out as the factual, flawed writing of the prior series, you make a generic subjective comment that draws on no relevant comparison to which I, or any other reader, could draw a conclusion? Just “well I think 80s Trek is better, you should too, so if you’re not suggesting that you must be instigating debate”

Dave in MN, what are any of your comments doing here? Instigating stupor?

Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

Here’s a thing
Best of Both Worlds, Part 1

8 people dead, 11 injured in engineering by Borg cube cutting beam in engineering section. Geordi arrives on the bridge from the turbo lift. His shirt is clean, fresh pressed. No sweat, no dirt, maybe even stopped at his quarters and popped into a fresh uniform and put on aftershave on the way to the bridge.

Picard: “how’s things in engineering Mr LaForge?”
Geordi: “under control, we left some good people down there”

I guess we don’t get to see Crusher and her triage.
We don’t get to see the bodies lining the hall, the blood, the surgeries, capable surgeons like Hawkeye and Bj and Charles working their asses off trying to save Geordi’s comrades. We don’t see other crew members lining up to donate organs or even blood.

Oh wait, we DO see Beverly minutes later, looking fine. She’s on an away team mission to the Borg cube.

We don’t get to see Picard writing out 8 letters to crew families, or 8 bodies sent out in photon torpedo cartridges with crew assembled. We don’t see any officer agonize for EVEN ONE SECOND over those 8 deaths or 11 injuries. And you think TNG had no gore? Hell it has no soul, no empathy, and no sympathy, and that is cold human psychological gore.

The problem isn’t Star Trek: Picard. The problem was the antiseptic, sterile, almost austere bullshit we were fed during the 80s and 90s that passed for entertainment. Injured people with red blush on their faces, a little black soot, walking hunched over to indicate injuries, that was the problem.

Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

“I hoped somehow that STP would be about Picard living on earth and dealing with the end. A thoughtful examination of death and letting go. What does dying and sickness mean in paradise.”

Who, anywhere, in any time epoch, would pay to watch this, ever. That’s called #snuff.

Re: PIC S1: Absolute Candor

At least there’s a new episode to complain about now
