Star Trek - Picard
Gotham Gal posted a topic in TV & Video Entertainment's TV DiscussionStar Trek Picard is two episodes in on CBS All Access. I'd recommend it if you like sci-fi and have at least a passing interest in Star Trek incarnations. It's been set up very skillfully for a potentially intriguing story re: Romulans, Data, Borg, and of course, Picard, now retired (not really). I like it better than Discovery, which I couldn't (or at least haven't) finished. On a positive note, it's been renewed for next season, so no worries about cancellation at least for a year or so.
Andromeda- Where Did It All Go Wrong?
Guest posted a blog entry in The Dark Corner of the UniverseI loved the first two seasons of Gene Roddenberry''s Andromeda, but then it started to fall apart when they part in Bob Engels as head writer (he can't write an Androemda episode to save his life). The third season had some good episdoes from the remaining writers from the original writing staff (since the original head writer- Robert Hewitt Wolfe- was fired and the story editor- Ethlie Ann Vare- left due to creative differences). Then the original writing staff left after the end of season 3 and season 4 continuesd it's bad descent. Season 4 may have had some great episodes still, but the two part season finale (episodes 421 and 422) was pure dren with the 20th episode being one of the last great episodes of the show.Now they have reached season 5 that drifts further into the butchering of the original concepts of the show. I'm getting tired of them being stuck in the Seefra system (13 episodes have aired so far). Making Dylan a transfigured Vedran is crap and then making the father of all Nietzscheians into a jerk is evena worse insult to all Andromeda fans. It is no surprise the best episode of the season so far is the 11th episode (the 99th episode of the whole series) because it is written by Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz (part of the original writing staff and written some of the best episodes of the series).Now with season 5 being the last season likely, fans of the show will hear soon from Robert Hewitt Wolfe about his original plans for the show in just a few months.Now feel free to debate my view on the show's downfall in quality.
