Unseat The Expanse from its best Sci-fi Show Pedestal ? No Chance based on this offering . .
21 March 2020 | by antonydwhiteheadSee all my reviews

Series One of Star Trek Picard has seen some good eps but this penultimate episode was not one of them.

Clumsy awkward and frankly irritating: this was the first time in the Series this Star Trek fan almost stopped watching. Again unfavourable comparisons with The Expanse demonstrate STP's weaknesses with plot and characterisation all over the place. Sure there were some good special effects which is not surprising given the budget . . but these were undercut especially by the underwhelming banality of the synth settlement as populated by a troop of very average actors speaking excruciatingly banal dialogue. There are some good characters in this Show but the script does not do them justice and convincingly reflect what we expect them to do. This undermines our belief in the world that has been created and as a result is extremely frustrating.

STP has a LONG way to go to catch up with The Expanse.
