After being more or less disappointed by season 2 of Picard I was blown away by the writing and quality of the first episode of Strange New Worlds. Captain Pike is one of the best written (and acted) characters I've seen in sci-fi, hand's down.


@ericmann I haven't watched E1 of SNW. Overall S2 of Picard didn't do it for me, but the last episode won it a lot of points.

Could have done it all in... 4 episodes though.

@kraft I had that same sense. Felt too drawn out. The first ep of SNW, tho, shows a lot of promise. I'm sure some folks will find Pike a bit preachy, but given his character arc from Discovery til now he makes a lot of sense.
