Now Hear This! “Encounter at Farpoint” really blows.
I feel about it the same way I did when I gave my first and more clever review last August. Not only is it confusing, desultory and dull. . .most of the characters are unlikeable. Only LaForge is kinda cool — but he’s barely in it. Picard is a total prick. I’d mutiny if he stayed this way. I imagine Picard’s change in character will be the first thing I’ll notice as we go past pilot to regular season. I remember when this first aired in 1987. I eventually changed the channel. I didn’t give TNG a second chance til months later.
