I know it's up to how they present it but this Picard S2 really looks like a fever dream which evokes more Twin Peaks than the Enterprise. Borg Queen eating car batteries ? Out of place musical numbers ? 7 of 9 finding dead bodies in present day LA backalleys ? ICE subplot (do they even tie that with the Romulan refugee plot of S1 which was already along that theme) ? Dr Soong trying to kill Picard with a Mercedes ?

Like what ?

that guy has had a weird path through life

hated perhaps unfairly for writing which was not his fault, then later everyone realized this and discovered the guy isn't so bad

becomes a sort of minor nerd icon like felicia day etc., talks candidly about his experiences, is an internet goof

has some memorable decent roles like in Leverage

then in his lust for validation becomes a parody of himself in shit like Big Bang Theory, shills hard for extreme cringe nerd shit like Ready Player One and Two (did the audiobooks), shills for Star Wars and Picard and just comes across terribly everywhere he goes

If anybody deserves an unironic nerd bullying like being shoved into lockers, wedgies, and swirlies it's Wil Wheaton who is like the real life caricature the likes of the nerd crew who uncritically just consooms and tries to shame you into consooming.

Isn't there going to be a third and final season of Picard?

it was already a shock that they came back for season 2, apparently Rich dragged Mike back in

Mike's tone really makes me believe it's all Star Trek in general including TNG videos. He's done with TNG, it's tainted now.

In retrospect, the TNG cast shelling out for Family Guy probably should have been a Red Alert klaxon.

It's super bizarre how it's looped back around on itself. The clips of him in these RLM vids are completely disconnected from my previous impressions of him.

For the record this is the most "gloves are off" criticism I've ever seen from RLM outside the Plinkett reviews (and maybe the GB16 HitB), Mike specifically. Rich straight up calling Picard fans outright morons, and Mike washing his hands of the whole thing after going on an impromptu 4-minute pitch-perfect parody of the show's laughably bad writing.

I didn’t mind Westley in TNG. I’m aware of the “Gary Stu” and “shut up, westley” jokes. But every clip of him in the review is obnoxious. I know there’s a plot reason for his absence in the movies but that’s never stopped them before. He had a cameo in Genesis that got cut. They’re reuniting the cast except him. Reads like fans would be more excited for Tasha Yar or even Pulaski returning.

Will Wheaton comes off as even more of a parody than the RLM crew doing the Nerd Crew.

It’s an interesting phenomenon where new content of something you love can kill your love for the original thing. Many people (myself included) experienced that with the Matrix sequels.

They're very close to being unironic Simpsons comic books guy (or Mr.Plinkett) here so that's probably for the best they stop harming themselves over it.

I hope it was a moment of weakness/hyperbole, I hope he watches a good TNG season and has a wonderful time

Rich is man enough to admit it's their "catching feels over Star Wars" moment.

Wil Wheaton... Curse of child actors, I don't think any of it is his fault and I would probably crack under the sort of negative, toxic attention too. Being reduced to a perpetually open mouthed hype man is melancholic. Then again not sure being on the retirement home show along all the aged, tired or bloating heroes of olde for a sad farewell tour is really a better fate (except the checks).

Star Trek never had any shortage of going back to the present day Los Angeles to deliver thick commentary (that Voyager two parter... Wasn't great) so... But there's something different to the look, tone and feel of Picard, even in art direction and lighting. It does feel high on the smell of its own farts.

Pulling out Gary 7 is a weird deep cut, but so was torturing that reformed Borg child from Voyager in S1.
I miss Picard and co dressing up as cartoon space pimps and pirates, at least it looked like fun if out of tone dumb.

what the hell are they even shooting at as they enter the room.
Can't hit distracted kids at point black range.

Oh I see they are shooting the edge of the screen. :dead

Also why is that scene so dark. Are Jedi always training kiddo's in the middle of the night?

The Andor thing looks shit too in the trailer.

It's getting close to direct to DVD levels but Steven Seagal in Star Wars would actually be more creative than this.

So it sounds like director/writer is an Indian Evangelical nut job, so the film was totally right wing propaganda but failing even in that.

I skimmed this as Indian Evangelion nut job, and was just pondering how crazy bollywood anime would be

Surprised that Jay thought that the Northman was accesible. Is basically not whitewashed Vikings with drugs and Hamlet.
