So it's prime time line after the kelvin movies. Interesting.
I see hints of brexit in the message it is giving.

Borg cube is very curious. They're really going for the end of history vibes here.

Enterprise was slow to start, but became ok by the end.

I drink alcohol to relax, like normal people.

This is on Amazon, right? I see also CBS all access or something. I may check it out on Amazon but to be honest, I really haven't watched much of Amazon stuff since getting my first smart TV about six months ago. Some good stuff there but I watch enough TV with other shows.

No, it's on CBS All Access.

It's on Amazon outside of the US (North America?).

It's on Crave TV, not Amazon, in Canada.

It's on Amazon Prime over here.

I am not saying it does not have promise after Episode 1, but I have already seen the movie Logan, so I am not too thrilled about its TV version.

Given KRonn is in the US all the rest past ulmont seems like an unnecessary gloat/clarification. ;)

I drank because I wanted to drown my sorrows, but now the damned things have learned to swim.

Second episode put more meat on the bones.  I liked the [spoiler]Bulterian Jihad vibe[/spoiler].

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

It wasn't a "great" episode though. I preferred the first one. But it was a necessary evil episode, full of necessary exposition that's gonna get to the crux of the rising action.

I liked it. It had less character moments than the first episode, but at the same time the plotting was less in your face and successfully managed to make the conspiracy feel interesting.

I'm rewatching all of TNG and probably the TNG-era movies before I watch Picard. :sleep:

Same here, and I'm in no particular hurry about it.  At the very least, I'm going to wait until it's legally available in the US without subscribing to CBS All Access just to check this out.

TBH, while Patrick Stewart seems very happy to be playing Picard again, and that's a very promising sign, I have no faith in anyone to produce good Trek anymore.

Watching TNG is always fun but not really prerequisite for Picard.
