Im excited for the new star trek Picard series, although i'll never pay CBS a dime to see it. Anyway, CNN had some dude write a review of the series. https://www.cnn.com/...view/index.html and something struck me. It wasn't the obvious, "I don't like it" or that this is an obvious attempt to pull fans through warming over some tired old character. Low hanging fruit. I'd watch Picard brush his teeth if he still had any.

 

There's a point where the reviewer drops the line:  

 

Much of the early action takes place on Earth, and the shimmering glimpses of the planet's future are hopeful, even by "Trek" standards.)

 

 

Yup, show sucks cuz it doesn't global warming enough.

I will probably wait until all episodes have aired and are on demand... then go binge it in a month.

I'm looking forward to seeing it, but based on the previews, they should not have brought Data back.  He's a friggin android that isn't supposed to physically change/grow old.  Now he looks like a middle aged version of a young Data.  Based on the trailers, that's my only gripe.

How can you be a vintner when ZOMG global warming as obviously decimated the planets ability to grow grapes?

I'm curious because I dug the series. Wife though won't want to watch it and I'm not really interested enough to pay seeing it.

How far into the future is this supposed to take place? Even if global warming got pretty bad I could see a civilization that advanced turning things around pretty quickly.

Forget Star Trek, when does the new season of "The Orville" start? That's some serious SF there!

 You and my daughter. Obsessed with Jeri Ryan. Painted this portrait last week. We're Trek geeks from way back. We love Picard!
