I enjoyed it. Yes there's some repetition, but it does go into those final parts that they didn't cover, so was worth a watch. Mike just seems so depressed at what Trek has become that I don't think he finds much humour to be had in it.

Yeah, I liked it. It's not as funny as some of his other Plinkett Reviews but I guess it's hard to be hilarious when you're genuinely upset an angry about the subject matter; also when there's not much juice in the thing you're trying to dehydrate to begin with. Good old Mike.

I've not seen any Picard and watched about 20 mins of the plinkett review. Hope someone is happy about this.

I wish that this preference for the dark and serious wasn't mistook for maturity or importance. It just shows a poor utopian imagination, the idea of utopia was the joy of classic Sci-Fi and Star Trek.

Anyone can create a dystopia, it takes a real visionary to dare to create a world they'd like to live in. This is something that Sci-Fi, as yet relatively untouched by the smug centrist semi-nihilists, still has the potential to foster.

Mike has spoken favourably on Voyager and I seem to remember he said he liked the last season of Enterprise when discussing Trek with Rich on the MacCulkin's podcast. He seemed a little cold on DS9 whereas in this review he seems more favourable on it. I wonder if Shit Trek has made him reevaluate Old Trek that he didn't previously think as highly of.
