Indeed.   Set my smart phone on the dashboard and watch film or tv occasionally while driving.  Probably not safe but I’d say I keep my eyes on the road mostly and listen to what’s going on.

I said I mostly just listen to it lol.   Kind of like a book on tape?   If you think I’m fucking staring at it how could that even be possible?!?  Wouldn’t I be in a ditch after 1 minute....

 

The amount I actually see is similar to the amount of time you take to change a song or radio station or look at the clock while driving.  Aka a passing glance.   Jesus.

Lol!

Also, the trailer looked pretty damn shitty.

Idk I thought the first two eps were great. The third was kinda scattered but still showed promise. As with Discovery, keep in mind that literally all 90s Trek shows took at least 3 26-episode seasons to become great (TNG, DS9) or at least watchable (VOY). Picard arguably has the best pilot episode in the entire fucking franchise.

yeah the writing so far has been super good. i think it's OK to give this away- the backstory for how picard became disenchanted with the federation is so well-balanced and believable given his character, the ST universe, it's really impressive. and THE FORMULA of impossible problem-crew works out solution- tech the tech-solution, being stretched is great. there seem to be some explicit nods to  in the most recent ep so i'm curious to see how it plays out. heh, i'm smitten ?

i actually thought the opposite. i loved 'encounters at farpoint'.
i cannot stand 'picard' with this last episode being the last straw for me. i dislike everyone besides maybe picard- but i also don't buy that he's at it again. also- who was that romulan kid he met? and the other romulan legolas wannabe? and why did that planet where he wakes up in just look like something from star wars? i honestly cannot even think of 1 thing i enjoy about picard.

Encounter at Farpoint was a decent episode, compared to most of the rest of season 1, which was almost entirely terrible (I still enjoyed it despite that on my recent re-watch, but compared to the subsequent stuff it's bad). Picard has definitely been better than most of S1 of TNG. In fact it's been pretty good so far, the first couple of episodes were very good I thought, last two less so, seems to be running out of steam a bit, and the writing on the last episode was patchy (I enjoyed the stuff with Picard, the rest not so much). Hopefully they're mostly done with the setup now (though I think we may have 1-2 more eps of that yet, we still have the Riker and Troi cameos to "look forward to", I hope Sirtis has remembered how to do the accent this time).

the Romulan kid was the legolas Romulan, this was very obvious, how did you miss that? the planet looked nothing like a star wars place either, not sure where you got that from. I think your brain has been scrambled by all the godawful trash you watch and you now incapable of consuming media in a normal manner.

i agree the non-picard stuff is less than the picard stuff. truly, nothing beats picard walking around on a planet one-strapping a backpack.

it's funny we all agree on romulan legolas- that planet had mad elf-land lighting!

this might be the case but:

i thought the romulan planet looked like star wars in the sense of new star wars or manalorian (like where mando meets cara dune). basically, some throwaway set in northern california. i know star trek's production design budget was mainly for ship interiors but since this has been like 95% NOT on a ship besides the borg cube that looks ab-so-lute-ly nothing like a borg cube you'd think maybe (?) they'd put some work on the sets but nope. 

and is that twin girl on the borg ship the borg queen? is that why 7 comes back and is shooting everyone around her? 

also: TNG's where no one has gone before and conspiracy are some of my favorite. i actually read the insects aliens introduced in conspiracy were a precursor to the borg. i do agree it took a while before episodes got really good, but how many television channels and shows did we have then compared to now? currently, i'm only curious how (and why) seven fits into the picture, and unless they do a complete 180 on the show (make picard more commanding, give him a ship, change EVERYONE around him for likable characters, get a different production designer and change the intro so it's not a cosmos ripoff) i'm done.

Locke and Key isn't bad. It's a pretty visual show. kind of fun actually. 

Just watch it at home. You get to relax and not get a manslaughter charge for driving though a farmers market.

Locke and Key was good fun (binged it last weekend), also watching Picard every Friday (it gets better by the episode.)
Started binging The Expanse yesterday evening, I remember starting it and disliking it a few years a go, now I dig it and must say above average entertainment, very enjoyable series  ?

Haha.  Getting to realize how ridiculous that sounded.  Should've said in first post i don't actually watch it i just listen to it really.  >.<.

 

But back to Locke and Key.  I'm watching the whole first season over again with my wife who hasn't seen it yet, to see if i can pick up on things i missed first go around.  I really like how dark the show can get.

 

Another show I caught was "RAGNAROK" on Netflix.  I usually stay away from foreign stuff but i had fun watching this.  Maybe because I know nothing about Norse Mythology and it felt like something very new to me.  It's not getting rave reviews but I hope it gets picked up for another season, I enjoyed watching it almost as much as Locke and Key.

My wife recently splurged and got an HBO streaming subscription so she and I are currently watching The Outsider. It’s quite good. 
We’ve also been watching Armando Iannucci’s new show Avenue 5. It’s ridiculous but fun. 
Both shows are pretty much perfect palate cleansers for each other.
