I don't hate anything. Simply put, there are just some programs that never do anything for me. Do I watch them? Well, yes, from time-to-time I might decide to visit them in my ripe old age. I did that for Babylon 5, a show I just never got the bug for during its original run in TV syndication: I visited the entire series run (not the telefilms or Crusade) on home video. Did my opinion change? Not really. I thought it was interesting. I thought it had a fabulous cast. But for whatever reason it just never struck a chord with me. Each of us is different, and sometimes that's all it boils down to critically or commercially: if it doesn't 'touch' me, I just tune it out.
NuTrek -- Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, and anything else that's rolled out behind Paramount's pay wall (which I'm not fond of) -- is an animal all its own. I do find it vastly different from the Treks of old (not in a bad way) that I've tried to explain as follows: while classic Trek was about "ideas," NuTrek seems to be about "ideology." While ideas don't tend to divide people, ideologies do; thus, I just don't see the shows as crafted or produced with the same motivation behind these stories and characters, so likewise I've tuned it out.
Now, as I said above, I don't hate it. I don't hate anything. I don't wish it ill. I hope it can be around for as long as the original series and maybe even longer (if that's somehow possible). It certainly speaks to its audience, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I just don't consider myself part of its audience. So be it. We part company as friends, and I've even engaged some of its talent online when given the opportunity (and they respond).
I did purchase Star Trek: Picard on DVD and watched it with the wifey. Erm ... without going into any great lengths, I was disappointed with it for a lot of small reasons. Sure, it's great to see Patrick Stewart back, but I didn't see this modern version of Capt. Picard as being the same as Picard of old. Some of that relates to the way the writers crafted this particular story; I don't think any of us relish the premise of our heroes getting old and/or infirm, and -- given that was the reality of this particular show -- I thought there were ways that could've been handled responsibly and respectfully ... but that wasn't the case.
Again, that's just my two cents. I never ask for anyone to agree, nor do I expect to agree with all of you. My thoughts are my thoughts, and I'm as entitled to them as you are to yours.
In any event, there's a trailer for the second season of Star Trek: Picard that was released just today (I believe); and it definitely looks like it could be a bit more of a story aligned thematically with the days of The Next Generation. While trailers can be deceptive, this one appears to kinda/sorta retread some of the ideas always tinkered with in the shows as well as the movies; but I'll leave it at that for those who want to check it out. It'll be posted below, you know what to do, and that's all I have to say about that.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
