So having just finished watching Picard, I, er, I liked it.

As, like, a Firefly revival or something.

My more serious assessment was that I liked it as a piece of sci-fi television, but it was not good Star Trek except for the episode where they camped out with Will Riker and his family for a few days.

Enh, I liked Picard too overall. I'm not going to rank it alongside the 90's series or anything like that but it at least felt more like Star Trek than mega-grimdark Discovery. It was better than Nemisis, and thus if nothing else a better end to 90's Trek. I'm cautiously optimistic as to the future seasons. Honestly I think it might have worked better as a miniseries where Picard (spoilers on the off chance anyone hasn't seen it yet) stayed dead at the end. I'm not really sure what else they have to do going forward, it felt like they really wrapped up everything they presented his character as having been dealing with for the last few decades. My ultimate hope, since Patrick Stewart isn't going to want to do more than a few seasons, is that it'll set up some spin-off for the 25th century in the Prime universe as a more traditional series like they did with Pike over in the Discovery universe, which I can't accept as anything but an alternate reality since it's so weird.

Was it ever explained why Cumberbatch Khan is so pale?

I think there were some behind-the-scene mumbles about Starfleet Intelligence or Section 31 or whoever giving him a new face so he wouldn't be instantly recognized in the field as Hitler2, but no, nothing was ever said on screen about why a man named Khan Singh was Anglo-Saxon as gently caress.
