News & Interviews for Star Trek: Picard: Season 1
Plenty of plotlines kick off in an eventful opening innings to this very expensive-looking show.
[Stewart] has a unique ability to dial into his roles without completely disappearing, carrying the audience's earned investment from role to role, whether he's suffering through an awkward trip to the toilet or sipping tea among the stars.
Picard is Trek through and through, full of thorny ethical quandaries, social allegories, sinister admirals, and an undercurrent of optimism in spite of it all.
Rather than boldly go into the depths of space, Picard is far more interested in exploring the depths of its famous leader. In doing so, the series more than justifies its existence in today's nostalgia-driven era.
Whenever Stewart and CBS All Access opt to move forward with Season 2 of "Picard," this final frame assures us of a future that looks bold, brighter, and beautifully human. Just what we need in the darkness of now.
Picard ultimately is all about Stewart being back in that titular role. He's done stronger work over the years as Picard, but this aging, more-vulnerable version of the figure is, like the show itself, compelling.
Star Trek: Picard is founded on the approach that Trek is designed to reflect the world in which we live, as opposed to the world we expect the 24th century to be.
I like a lot of what Picard is trying to do. Season one was shaky at times, but fundamentally I am not done with Jean-Luc Picard or these other characters just yet.
Sir Patrick Stewart is certainly the main reason to see this, and most of the cast makes it pretty enjoyable despite its flaws. I like the slower pace as the storyline still managed to keep me engaged (pun intended). Bring on season 2!
Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Picard: Season 1
Dec 01, 2020We expected more for this show it is good to see beloved characters one again but style of this show and story is just awful
Nov 19, 2020Amazing series. If you loved TNG, you will love this show. Visit old friends and make many new ones. Smart and exciting. Must see!
Nov 12, 2020This show is so bad that I not only hate star trek now but it made me question what was the point of getting attached to fictional properties... there is no point.
Oct 02, 2020Star trek at last! Needs some fine tuning but I had great fun.
Sep 30, 2020When I try a new food, I decide whether or not I like it. If I order a pepperoni pizza, and the when the pizza man arrives it's an olives and cheese pizza, I'm not happy with that pizza. If the pizza man then tries to explain to me that he loves olives and cheese on pizza, and I should try it, I likely will feel very miffed about it. If I then call the pizza place and tell them they got my order wrong, and they tell me that I just don't understand pizza, and I should love the pizza they sent me, I'm going to be very pissed off at that pizza place, demand my money back, and never order from them again. Star Trek was a brand. When I sat down to watch a Star Trek show, I was expecting a specific type of show. I wasn't looking for a gritty SciFi show, or whatever Picard was. I was looking for the comfort food of shows, and I got something different than I was told by the Star Trek logo I would get. Some people may love olives and cheese pizzas. Some people might love anchovies on their pizza. That's why pizza places keep those toppings on hand, but you're not going to convince people who don't like olives to eat an olive and cheese pizza just because you call it a pepperoni pizza. You also can't leave cheese off, or the sauce off, or send it without a crust to sit on top of, and call it a pizza. You can't send me spaghettis and call it a pizza, they're similar but not the same. Stop trying to "gain more audience" by changing the ingredients of Franchises. You can't add olives to a pepperoni pizza and expect someone who hates olives to be happy with that either, and you can't throw pepperoni onto an olive pizza and expect people who don't like pepperoni to enjoy eating that. All you're going to do is make the people who dislike olives and the people who dislike pepperoni, dislike your pizza. You're not going to win them both over by mixing the two. There's an old saying, "You can't please everyone all the time..." STOP TRYING TO PLEASE NON-STAR TREK FANS BY MESSING UP STAR TREK!
Sep 26, 2020So much better than I anticipated. I love the rag tag broken crew. I was worried it would be cheesy with some of the old characters but it was great. I look forward to season 2.
Sep 24, 2020I wanted to like this. And if this were a show starting from scratch, it could have worked. But it really had no business being called Star Trek. The Orville is far more trek than this. Picard is simply a different character. The new creators are attempting to broaden star trek and bring it to game of thrones audience. I get that, it's lucrative. But when you get rid of golden age sci fi outlook, you remove the heart of star trek. When characters are archetypes and the galaxy itself is tiny, it's not sci fi.
Sep 23, 2020The return of Jean-Luc Picard was long awaited and although we find him in a new phase of his life, he is still the same man that we know and love. This show is a slow burner, but as the series progresses it lives up to most of our expectations. Like Discovery season one, Picard's first season has lots of potential and some missed opportunities that I am sure will be rectified as the show progresses. It is not TNG by any means, but TNG is not forgotten. Well worth a watch (best to binge it in a couple of sessions for full effect).
Sep 20, 2020Tragic to see a beloved character reduced to a tag-along character in his own series. If you enjoyed TNG, give this one a miss.
Sep 18, 2020A muddled mess of terrible revisioning of what used to be, in a previous generation, a great tv series. Poorly written, as if it's set in present day, not in the distant future. Picard went from being a positive, respected leader as captain in the original series, to a bumbling, unsure, castigated old man in this drivel that bears his name. To think that I subscribed to all access to watch this garbage. Fool me once...
