It’s like saying you can’t watch the Mandalorian without seeing 11 films and the Clone Wars/Rebels cartoons. Yes there are some cool nods to the lore and returning characters, but can you enjoy it just on its own merits? Yes.

I would also recommend that people watch the Star Wars films before watching The Mandalorian. At least the original trilogy.

I would recommend that too. But it’s not essential.

You could watch paint dry and suffer the same excitement as The Mandlorian.

I thought it started well, sagged in the middle and ended strongly.

I've just noticed that the word "Picard" also sounds like someone saying "pick hard". This could be used for comedic purposes. For instance combining it with a nose (rude), or a bottom (quite rude). If anyone would like to use this in conversation get in touch and I'm sure we can arrange some sort of licensing agreement.

Or a vegetable playing a delightful game of whist or gin rummy. Obviously this has a less commercial application than my original idea, so I will not be developing it further.

Can we all agree that swearing has no place in Star Trek?

It's so jarring.

We can not. People swear; people in believable well-written fiction can swear as well.

I dunno, I remember thinking that it sounded really forced in STD.

An unfortunate acronym.

I thought it was great. It might be because I have a crush on Ensign Tilly though.

Well, that was obviously the case also.

We'll skate over Mali's EPIC WRONGNESS up there and stick to Picard - cor, this is a bit good, isn't it? Mr Stewart has definitely developed a strong "troubled old man" schtick (c.f. Logan). Very well shot, brilliantly atmospheric. I will watch more of this.

My only complaint so far is his rubbish choice in dog breeds.

I'm enjoying it, and I really like the intro music and opening sequence. It's got quite polarised reviews on imdb tho and in my easily-swayed nature I find myself agreeing with both the good reviews and the bad ones (or at least, elements thereof).

How much of it is him acting and how much is just that he's a real old duffer now anyway?
