What the gently caress is going on with this woods-girl and her bow. Why does she spend her time LARPing and if she spends her time LARPing why the gently caress is she pointing her bow at random old men who show up on her planet and threatening to kill them.

I guess riker's daughter was poking the bow around because they had trouble with the tzinti or whatever the gently caress

Neat!



To me the thing that is least believable about this whole episode is that the Riker family doesn't have a guest bedroom for picard.

Why is it ladies always be showering together in tv shows and such let me tell you how many people are allowed to watch me shower, none. I close my eyes when I shower and never peek, not once ever, and so should you.

Riker pretty clearly makes the shittiest pizza ever. I don't think he even rendered his tomatoes down into paste first.

Troi being a real bitch and telling someone who has never had a grown-tomato before to try one. Don't get me wrong tomato is delicious as hell but it's not an apple you don't just give it to someone and say "have a bite" unless you're doing some kinda bit. Sure Vashj or Dashj or whatever has probably had a tomato before just from the replicator so she should basically know what she's getting into more or less but it just doesn't sit well with me when they probably have more palatable things than fuckin' tomatoes.

This is post-activation Soji. Her positronic brain is in "gently caress it, guess I don't need any of these human-presenting safeguards anymore" mode.

Luckily she loved the tomato.

Also I forgot about the safeguards but that honestly raises even more questions in my mind

Is her name really Soji? gently caress I can't retain a god damned thing from this show.

Picard is outright loving with this poor android by telling her it's an elaborate plot to torture her in a sunny garden villa in the most sarcastic way possible. Honestly though one of his defining character traits is being kinda lovely at dealing with younger adults so I don't actually have any objection.

All I can say is I am onboard as gently caress for Mass Effect: Picard.

chabon eps have picard saying things like “hey......hey!!” but at the same time, get the core of the character p fuckin well. he is just too much of a writer to calibrate his Writerly Voice for television i guess

this is the first ep where at no pt did it feel like the camera was fighting the sets in the borg cube, imo. dark lighting w no specific light source + narrow corridors + long corridors has to make the cube s nitemare to shoot on, but this ep managed it

and the picard/soji conversation worked hard to make the camera angles meaningful when it totally could have gotten away w shot/reverse-shot

That at Picard being dense as gently caress that Data flying through space, busting into an enemy dreadnought, fighting his way to the bridge, and slapping an emergency beam out doodad on Picard purely to save his life knowing 100% that he wouldn't survive the trip himself was anything but the ultimate expression of love and respect for him. I dunno, maybe he wanted to see if Soji would say it herself because she's a neutral observer on the whole thing.

Better alternate ending: Super Android Picard and Data team up to suplex the evil Romulans into submission.

I would do it but my MSPaint skill is zero

Give Picard psychic powers so he can make that Extra's cameo canon and just have him fly around the universe making women's clothes fall off with his mind.

Although if they had any balls whatsoever, they’d have a guest spot open for Weyoun-457
