(Also, I never thought about it before but I saw a chunk of it not that long ago on TV and it is really glaring now how white and heteronormative it is. It made me think about how much I’ve evolved from my own bubble because I have seen it a bunch of times over the decades and that has literally never entered my mind before.)
For the life of me, I can't understand all of the negativity around this show - I'll concede that there are problem (as it always the case with ST), but as a TNG fan I find myself consistently entertained.
Case in point: Ep 7 "Nepenthe" - It was just a delight to see the old crew back together again - I felt that the writing was excellent and performances gripped me. I found myself surprised by how sad I was over the loss of Thad, a character who we've never actually met. The writers really did a wonderful job of introducing him to us and the subtleties in the dialogue were masterful IMO.
I've also got to say that I really enjoy the new music theme to the show. It reminds me of "The Inner Light" and I believe it is just the kind of music Picard would love. I know JIm and A_Ron think it is unmemorable, but I have the tune stuck in my head.
