    I was a huge fan of the original graphic novel, as well as the movie... so I'm hoping this goes well:

    Anyone else NOT excited with how this looks? So Picard comes out of retirement because he has to save the galaxy with some McGuffin or something. That doesn’t look or feel like TNG at all. If they just brought him back because he wanted to explore more, that would have been fine. Also, how are they going to explain why Data got fat?

    Im guessing if they have any significant role for Data they'll either CGI him thinner or just explain his physical appearance away by claiming it was a choice he made to "feel more human" like they did his "aging" in the final episode of TNG. Im excited for this. I don't know what to think of the more cinematic take on the series this seems to have. I watched the first two episodes of Discovery and was ehh about it, maybe that became more episodic as the series progressed I don't know. I loved DS9's shift away from it for the feel of that show but TNG was always great as a weekly problem solving monster of the week story telling. Interested in seeing this ones take.

    Also I hope they bring back Q. Great foil and great story telling with a character like that. Reading further they signed the actor reprise Hugh the borg from the I borg, one of the best episodes of the entire series.

    If Jonathan Frakes isn’t leap-frogging over the back of chairs to sit down...I’m gonna be a little sad.

    In the same dark and gritty vein, Amazon released the The Boys today. Heres the trailer for it:

    This looks ambitious to say the least:

    So, just binged the 2nd season of Lost in Space on Netflix... and I'm conflicted.

    I kind of enjoyed it, especially near the end of the season, but I found too much of it to be too much... crazy weird "action" scenes that made no sense... a lot of unnecessary drama that made me fast forward through it.

    All in all I'd give it a 6.5/10, but they've gone off in a strange direction... as in, they're no long lost in space...

    It's turned more into a "watch the robot learn to become human and grow into a strong, independent robot who can think for himself" show. The season's ending was a bit weird, too.

    They're taking a shit-ton of liberty from the source material, to say the least.
