Picard will be woke, probably suck
« on: January 14, 2020, 02:09:25 AM »
Latest from Sir Patrick Stewart

Quote
“I think what we’re trying to say is important,” he says. “The world of ‘Next Generation’ doesn’t exist anymore. It’s different. Nothing is really safe. Nothing is really secure.”

“I explained to them all those elements of ‘Next Generation’ which belong in ‘Next Generation,’ and why I didn’t want to go near them again,” he says.

“In a way, the world of ‘Next Generation’ had been too perfect and too protected,” he says. “It was the Enterprise. It was a safe world of respect and communication and care and, sometimes, fun.” In “Picard,” the Federation — a union of planets bonded by shared democratic values — has taken an isolationist turn. The new show, Stewart says, “was me responding to the world of Brexit and Trump and feeling, ‘Why hasn’t the Federation changed? Why hasn’t Starfleet changed?’ Maybe they’re not as reliable and trustworthy as we all thought.”

Fuck man.

So anyway if you were holding out hope that Picard might somehow be OK even with all the restrictions on being actual Star Trek.. hope you like Politics because you are getting Politics.

No matter what you think about Trump, et al.. you probably can agree.. we're sick of Trump shit in media. I don't really care about seeing Star Trek turned into a current-day partisan political soap box.

Yes, old Star Trek attacked social issues but they didn't exactly target current administrations or things so specifically. Plus they did it within the Roddenberry vision, they didn't alter the entire thing to mirror 'Todays Political Climate'.

Honestly I just don't get it. Nobody wants this other than the producers. This will piss people off and they won't watch it just like the myriad of other attempts to over-politicize recent genre shows. I guess we'll still have The Orville but dammit.. another wasted opportunity.

But they aren't really working, the ratings on most of the woke shows are terrible.. if it's an established show ratings actually drop.

In some cases it's just Hamster watching so they really should put in more references to CB radios and repairing obscure electronics instead of all the politics.

Also Spiney is shedding a tear at your omission. Then again, he's no gentleman.

Why do actors and celebrities think anyone gives a shit what they think?... oh right because people do.

Just put on your pointy ears and "act" the world can handle itself without your help.

Fuck Bono too.  :P

I saw Patrick Stewart in Denver in '92 at a convention. 20k+ fans showed up.  Mostly standing room only.  He was a dick.  Wasn't a fan of Star Trek, wasn't a Sci-fi fan, didn't understand his fans or care. In fact, of all the TNG cast cons I went to, he was the only dick.  Jonathan Frakes and John de Lancie were by far the best.  If this is "woke," it'll crash and burn like the rest.
