    Well, too bad these bozos didn't like it. And not that my opinion matters more than theirs but I loved it.

    Waiting for that show was like knowing you're going to meet with dear, old friends after haven't seen them in a long while. You don't know how it's going to turn out; maybe the memories are better than the reality of right now?

    But after just a few seconds of Picard and Data, everything was all right and I couldn't wait to see what was next for them.

    I found it amazing how seamlessly these two great actors eased back into their roles. I'm in love more than ever.

    Or any other YouTube movie critic for that matter.

    They have a dry humour, they bring up solid points and they are free from corporate bullshit, so whether I agree with them or not, at least I know it's their honest opinion. They also don't take themselves too seriously, like most of their reviews are just two guys talking to each other and that's it. No hype, no arbitrary score system, no random partnership ads during the videos. Just buddies talking, sometimes with very differing opinions.

    People take it very seriously when something they like is being criticized, and I even read stuff like "why are they trying to tell me I am not supposed to like this???", when in fact, they did not imply that at all, and it's just fragile egos talking from hurt fans. It's also funny when people desperately try to discredit them for being mindless haters, while they actually praised The Mandalorian, hell, even liked some of the new Trek films.

    And people watch reviewers because they don't want to waste their time with something potentially shitty. I would've gotten a brain aneurism during that whole "Fox news" scene, but now I got to laugh with them instead. That's a win-win. As for people who loved it, they either won't watch this, because why would they care what others think about things they like, or they watch it, because they are curious if something slipped through their nostalgia goggles.

    With regard to youtube reviews, i always take that with a pinch of salt...and a large one if it's a negative reaction.

    Many YT's are stuck in a constant war with it's algorithm, and many chasing views. A large number of film YT channels that i follow have brought this up, and also brought up that negative reactions get FAR more views, so much so that a lot of them have specific videos every few weeks JUST to shit on something, because that's where the views are! Hell some even just only do negative stuff on terrible films/shows, so when i see stuff like the above i always have the thought in the back of my mind "did they really hate it, or was alot of that hate just for show?"

    It's always good to find critics and film buffs that tend to be on the same level as you, that way when they review something positively you wouldn't normally have watched chances are your going to have a good time, but always take critics opinions as that, an opinion. And if someone is really hating on something on YT that is generally not being hated anywhere else it's probably just for show/clicks.

    S1E1 Spoilers Coming...


    Aside from what I wrote previously I do like where the story could go in regards to Romulans having a Borg cube in their control, they are clearly rebuilding and repairing it.

    We all know that Romulans are dicks and always wanting the most powerful weapons...

    ... remember this episode?








    PS Whats behind the ending when droid girl (Dahj's sister) said she actually loves listening to people talk? Is that some of DATAs essence?

    Yeah, a character you love to hate, but she did kind of have a point. Another solid episode.

    I like (with reservations) Discovery, but this is kind of funny.

    Ugh. I haven't seen any of ST: Discovery season 2, nor have I seen any ST: Picard. Makes me feel like I've been wasting my life lately. Anyone else remember the old days when stuff was just on TV? How is this new ST comparing to the classics so far? Any thoughts?

    Discovery was very hit-or-miss. I enjoyed season 1 but season 2 was a mess, story was all over the place, although I loved Mount as Pike. Loving Picard, best Trek since DS9.

    How Jeri Ryan came back to Trek:

    Great introduction last week. It will be great to see her get to share the stage with Stewart.
