Two days since Picard hit the small screen in the USA and it would seem that the verdict is that most people were pleasantly surprised and happy about how the first episode went. Some of the more strident critics, having rubbished the whole of Picard before having seen anything, have now changed their tune. Yes the first episode was (grudgingly) ok but their sources now tell them things go downhill from episode 3 and this will prove them right all along! (I added the last bit but you get the point.) What they fail to mention is that these same sources were dumping on the first episode only a few days ago and dare I say they were wrong about that. What does that say about their reliability?
Whatever, I enjoyed the first episode of Picard and hope that things continue in this vain. Maybe they won’t and if that is the case then I will judge things then not before the episode has even been aired.
