I’m trying really hard to like this show. As a kid who taped every episode of TNG on VHS, I’m trying really really hard to get into this.And I just can’t seem to care about any of these new people. Like, I wanna care about Soji but Nepenthe has been my favorite episode so far because of the Rikers. I’d watch a whole season of Picard going from planet to planet catching up with his old crew. But this other stuff? Meh.Oh well. I tried.
The first part of the season I felt like the actor portraying Cal was just bad. He seemed like a one dimensional “hot husband.” Like a Disney Prince or a guy from a Hallmark Christmas movie. But after this episode, now I think his might be the best performance of the show. I can’t wait to go back and watch him knowing what we know now.It’s amazing what an actor can do with their character when they know what they’re building up to, as opposed to show runners who just spring it in them in the final scripts (yeah, guess that wound is still raw.)
