Quote from: foxandpeng on March 19, 2023, 02:19:11 PMPicard S:3 really is far better. It functionally ignores the odd twist at the end of S:1, and has no connection with S:2, either. Not suggesting it is perfect, but it is better.
Quote from: relm1 on March 19, 2023, 04:40:59 PMSo for someone who hasn't seen S1 or S2, we can just start at S3? Also, I have no idea how to watch the show. You have to purchase Paramount +?
Quote from: LKB on March 10, 2023, 05:58:38 PMRoddenberry wanted to touch on sensitive themes that were taboo in American television during the 1960's, and yet were vital and relevant within the daily functioning of American society.

Quote from: LKB on March 23, 2023, 08:37:23 AMThanks Karl, once I'm home I'll check that out. I've just been reading a review of the first season of Strange New Worlds on blu-ray...https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Star-Trek-Strange-New-Worlds-Season-One-Blu-ray/320075/#ReviewAs ML is a confirmed Trekker, this heightens my interest in the new series. And l already have Paramount+, so logic dictates probable interception of the first episode sometime this evening.
Quote from: LKB on March 24, 2023, 01:04:15 PMSo l sat down last night, pulled up Paramount+, located Strange New Worlds and started the first episode. This morning, l finished watching the final episode. I had never " binge-watched " anything before... not Trek, nor anything else. ( l might have done so with The Big Bang Theory once l discovered it, but never made the time to do so. ) While annoying instances of dumbed- down writing cropped up on occasion, it's easily the most enjoyable Trek I've seen since the series finale of TNG in 1994, and it's nice to be able to look forward to season two.
Quote from: San Antone on March 25, 2023, 06:42:57 AMLast night wife and I watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). Underwhelmed; but it was fun to see the same cast more than a decade later.
Quote from: relm1 on March 25, 2023, 04:51:31 PMI was very, very young like 5 years old when that came out and it blew my mind. Surely you felt it better than just underwhelming. I guess I wasn't expecting an action movie but something cerebral and it certainly delivered on that plus AI with robots attaining consciousness. That was a big reveal for me.
Quote from: San Antone on March 25, 2023, 06:11:27 PMWe thought it took too long to get the story going, and actually disliked the premise, proto trans-humanism - and found the ending too pat, and not an "ending" but just the end of the movie.
Quote from: relm1 on March 25, 2023, 06:38:40 AMIs it better than Picard S3?

Quote from: San Antone on March 26, 2023, 09:43:12 AMI bought the blu-ray ten movie collection of the Star Trek movies and will watch them all. I will be interested in my response, since as a Star Trek fan, if they will "hold up" or if I will be similarly underwhelmed. My wife refuses to watch The Wrath of Khan - finding Ricardo Montelban, as Khan, and the eel implants not what she wishes to see again. I guess I will be solo for that one.
Quote from: Karl Henning on March 26, 2023, 09:45:49 AMThe wife of my bosom would not enjoy that scene with the helmets, either, at all, at all.
Quote from: DavidW on March 26, 2023, 11:09:40 AMI think Wrath of Khan and Undiscovered Country hold up. But these movies in general didn't age well. In particular, the next gen movies are truly dreadful.
