@bgcarlisle I’m referring to myself and my computer (who did most of the actual work), obviously :P

Imagine you have to watch one

Which do you choose?

Still mad that “vinesauce” is not some kind of new slang term for wine

Actually, imagine you have to watch an equal number of episodes from each, so that you don't just choose Picard because it's shorter

Picard opinions 

@bgcarlisle @shahaan The intellectual emptiness of the worldview, which you gesture at by mentioning neoliberalism, was the part that rankled the most for me. Apparently people now live in poverty at the heart of the Federation while others live in luxury—and this radical departure from Trek canon is treated as wholly unsurprising, particularly galling in a show that treated every incredibly predictable "twist" as a giant revelation.

Picard Season 2 dark horse predictions 

🍍 They retcon season 1
🍍 Elnor finds a Trill beefcake Starfleet officer power top
🍍 We see the events of season 1 but through the eyes of the weirdo space robot snakes from the finale, which reframes everything and makes it all make sense somehow
🍍 Min. one (>=1) gay interdigitation
🍍 Picard makes a moral stand on an issue where the analogy doesn't break down the second you think about it
🍍 A full episode where Riker just non-sexually hugs people who need it

Anakin takes a job at Golden Corral. His job? Restoring balance to the forks
