I am sure these reviewers will come up with some excuse on why social commentary in Picard is bad and why social commentary in past shows is okay, that somehow modern issues are out of bounds, but Star Trek criticizing the Vietnam War in the 60s was okay.Let me get this straight. Supposed Star Trek fans object to Star Trek referencing political issues through allegory. Do I have that right?
Some people are SO stupid.
Also, I want to point out that I'm subscribing to the service JUST for Picard. That means CBS is getting what they want. Even better, my 83 year old dad will almost certainly be subscribing soon. This will be the first streaming service he has ever subscribed to. Simply because he liked the Pilot he saw on YouTube so much.
He's got a few projects on the fire for now, but he'll probably get a subscription next month. I can't think of a bigger metric for Picard's success than the idea that it's attracted an 83 year old to subscribe to his first streaming service,
I think these reviewers are less stupid and more just completely cynical and driven by greed, they will get less pateron donations if they do not complain about Picard. I do not think they act in good faith.
Anyway, I do not mind Viacom/CBS taking their time with this Star Trek cartoon, sometimes quality takes time. I think it is one of the most important thing coming out of Star Trek franchise, because the Star Trek franchise needs some shows to appeal to kids and get new fans interested in Star Trek.
