    Watched episode 3 today, Iíll still keep on watching. Yes the build up has been slow but I can see it picking up speed rapidly now.

    I think this is actually the main story arc - how Picard rediscovers himself and becomes THE Jean Luc Picard once more.

    Stewart is such a fine actor, I expect the journey to be compelling.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    Given it's already been renewed for Season 2, the producers and broadcasters must be pretty confident.

    Great news! How many episodes in this series? Must be getting really good viewing figures if they are committing to series 2 with just 3 episodes aired (well, available to stream).

    And also, Stewart himself must also be pretty certain it is good, because a/ he really didn't need to do it, b/ needed a lot of persuading, and c/ has pretty high standards himself.

    I'm sure she is, but there's always Patrick and his $80m fortune to help bridge that 38 year age gap.

    Much better... finally! I think binge watching would have made it so much better.

    The scene trying to get Picard diplomatic permission was really good fun.

    I watched the first episode, and then I've been watching in 2 episode blocks. Been enjoying it a lot, and I'm looking forward to watching it next week.

    Only watched the first episode so far and truth be told found it a bit slow and am in no hurry to return to it. Does it get better?

    You can usually watch it on Thursday evening. Not sure if it's from 9, 10 or 11.

    I'm watching it in 2 episode chunks and very much enjoying it. It's a slow burn, but worth it.

    Is he a giant, or is Picard tiny? I don't remember such an apparent size difference.

    Jerry Ryan has aged better than some ...

    Fantastic episode tonight. The scene where Picard and Ryker are reunited - I had a tear in my eye on more than one occasion...


    Best line of the night was from Troi, "You need to be Jean Luc Picard".

    That's the real story of the series.

    Is anyone else finding Dr Agnes and Raffi a bit, well, overacted? Also, for some reason, Dr Agnes makes me think of Ensign Tilly from Star Trek: Discovery.

    I havenít thought that at all, although I think there is much more to be revealed about both characters.

    I do sort of see the Ensign Tilley comparison but itís superficial I think.

    An interesting point is that Picard is constantly referred to by other characters as ďCaptainĒ, never ďAdmiralĒ, which I am sure is intended to reinforce his rediscovery of who he was and still really is.

    Yes, and there is a related over-egging of the script. A lot of screenwriters these days seem to think they're Joss Whedon. They're not.

    However, in this case it's pretty minor (especially compared to Discovery). So far it isn't ruining the series for me, but it does grate on me a bit. Compared to the quality of writing in TNG, the difference is night and day.

    This is a bit rubbish, but the fact it exists at all illustrates the point: Shakespeare or Picard?

    Just watched this weeks episode, really enjoyed the reunion.

    Iíve personally found Agnesí character to be OK. Sheís a civilian in space with something thatís ripping her apart from within, so can understand why she jolts around.

    The show reminds me a little of the Bond reboot from Brosnan to Craig in a way. Suddenly you have characters with inner lives, crosses to bear, light and shade - proper acting. Patrick Stewart was always a serious actor of course, but TNG was a bit of a pantomime compared to this. Itís Star Trek for grown-ups. Even Diana Troy is relatable, and Number One suddenly feels like a real person instead of an inflatable.

    Very enjoyable and Iím happy to hear talk of a season 2.
