114. Able-Bodied Writing (Picard 2.09 and 2.10)

Okay, team! It’s time for the final two episodes of Star Trek: Picard season 2. Anika and Liz exchange awkward hugs, get stabbed a little, and return to the early 25th century as we discuss…

  • To be blunt, we did not enjoy these episodes or, ultimately, the season
  • CONTENT WARNING: We discuss the Yvette storyline, suicide and mental healthcare from 5:04 to 25:20. If you are vulnerable or simply not in the mood, feel more than free to skip. And if you are vulnerable or affected by this and need help, here are some resources:

    • Lifeline Australia: 13 11 14
  • The theme of the season is loneliness
  • How do you have Orla Brady in two roles and waste her in both?
  • Raffi/Seven is the new Hera/Kanan (in that there is a total disconnect between what the writers think the relationship is versus the actual relationship on screen)
  • We do not love Rios’s ending (or the way all but one of the original characters have been discarded)
  • Anyway, that was a whole THING! That was just super not for us! Even the bits that should have been!
