    I don't know if I'm looking forward to the next year so much but will stick with a few episodes at least. Think it definitely has to get better though.

    Not long now. But in other news this is something I cribbed from a story about the new Picard series, on Stewart's place in the writing room.

    "The novelist-turned-screenwriter went on to explain the exact role Stewart had in the writing process. According to Chabon, Stewart showed up for a few weeks to brainstorm with the writers to get ideas flowing.

    "That time with Patrick as a resource and as a very willing and literate resource, I think its going to make the show"

    So yeah, sounds like they are using him and his experience on TNG as a way into the character.

    That's a really positive sign. I dare venture all these early signs are - they seem to be approaching the project with a real reverence for the material and no clear desire to just craft something poppy and post-modern for the sake of it.

    Have gone back to the beginning with TNG. Well, I say the beginning - beginning of series 3, in line with my own recommendation elsewhere in the thread.

    Watched the first two episodes, Evolution and The Ensigns of Command. The second is a great, great episode. The first shows signs of what the show will become. It feels a bit like the first two series at times, while at others it's a bit more stripped back and like what you get in most of series 4-7. Lots to like in it, though. A better Wesley episode which contains some important points in his overall narrative, and also some decent notes added to the relationship between Picard and Dr Crusher.

    Yeah, generally speaking I thought it held up remarkably well considering it's almost thirty years old now.


    To newer stuff: Discovery returns 3 weeks Friday (US) and Saturday (UK), so it's nearly here.
