Star Trek: Picard (2020)
To be fair, they did warn us that this show wasn't going to be anything like ST: TNG and they were right.
The problem is they're using a ST icon (Jean-Luc Picard) in order to lure people into watching it and as bad as the show is I'm a huge fan of ST: TNG and Capt. Picard so out of a sense of I loyalty I'm watching it but I'm resenting it.
I can't stand Dr. Jurati and can that Raffi person PLEASE stop calling Jean-Luc Picard "JL"?? It's disrespectful and it doesn't fit his character, he's not a mechanic he's a former starfleet Admiral. It just doesn't sound right, it's grating.
There is so much wrong with this show - bad cast, weak Picard (he's constantly talked down to by women which is annoying too), boring, corrupt Starfleet (really bothers me) and on it goes.
This show ripped the very soul out of Star Trek and all that it stood for. Why does Kurtzman have the keys to the cadillac? He clearly doesn't understand Star Trek. It's sad.
Voice doesn't fit
I love Chloe Bennett as an actress but her voice did not fit the character at all. It sounded really weird.
Green Team (2008)
Found this short on Amazon Prime. Absolutely hilarious! It's like Step Brothers but going to a dark, psychotic place!
Star Trek: Discovery (2017)
Doesn't feel anything like Star Trek
I agree with the reviews. I really wanted to like this show. I LOVE Star Trek. I've been watching it faithfully since I was a kid. I even prefer it to Star Wars, always have (don't judge!:) I couldn't wait for Star Trek to return to the small screen. I was so psyched and then I watched the premier and felt sick as did my teenage son who also loves Trek.
What have they done? Who let this group be in charge of such an historic and classic space saga like Star Trek? Did they not watch any Star Trek series' before? Even DS9 and Voyager in my opinion weren't great but they still felt like Star Trek. "Discovery" lacks its' Star Trek soul.
First off; There has always been a certain chemistry shared between the crew. I don't sense any here. 4 episodes in and I could still care less about any of their fates. No one stands out as likable or even interesting. Star Trek have always had interesting characters i.e. Data, Worf, Kirk, Spock, Seven of Nine and on and on. Try to pick one character that's interesting... I'm waiting.... thought not.
I agree with the other reviewers about the Klingons. I'm all for change but what the heck are we doing here? They are not intimidating or warrior like in the slightest. They sound like they are in absolute agony getting out their words. It's just strange.
This show is supposed to be 10 years BEFORE Kirk and the Enterprise right? What's with the advanced technology that we didn't even see in TNG? Did we devolve? When Star Trek has always been about evolving.
Star Trek has always been about discovering new world and new civilizations etc.. what are we doing here? It's supposed to be about humankind exploring. There's always been an innocence and naivety about humankind as we come up with these challenges. This is what I believe Roddenberry had in mind for Star Trek...not sure what we are doing here? Lastly; The ship "Discovery". It feels dark and suffocating. I get it's a smaller ship etc. but I feel claustrophobic watching it. Okay, we're trying to be "gritty" I guess...
My advice to the creators of this show is to hire a new show runner and new writers immediately! Over-haul or continue to your own demise because I can't imagine any ST fan enjoying this.
24: Legacy (2016)
Lost it's soul
I absolutely love the show "24" and was really looking forward to this series.
Episode #1 wasn't bad but Episode #2 is where this show got extremely stupid *** SPOILERS BELOW *** Breaking in to a police station to steal money to pay off his friend? Your telling me a government protection agency like CTU which has the Presidents doesn't have the resources to either request the money or get it elsewhere? I'm sorry, I know the show takes liberties but this is beyond any scope of believability.
They lost me here.
To add; Carter looks too young and out of his league to be believable as a hero. I just didn't get behind him.
Let's pretend this season never happened...
Hell on Wheels (2011)
I never had any idea how important a show runner was to a show. That is until what I witnessed last season with Hell on Wheels.
What started out as an incredible dark and gritty western turned into something I can't really describe other than campy, dull. There was no real identity any more.
It was such an incredible turn. It's almost as if the new show runner John Wirth never really got it. It had a completely different feel to it and the characters seemed to change. Did he even watch this show before taking it over? Looking into his bio I noticed he also ran "Terminator: The Sarah Chronicles" and the new "V". Both shows should have been great with all the previous history to work with but they just dragged on... kind of like Hell on Wheels is now.
After watching the season finale I couldn't believe what I had just seen. I'm still shocked by it and I don't mean that in the positive.
