The first couple of episodes have been superb, a welcome return to Picard and a more familiar Trek - albeit with changes to both him and Starfleet over the years.
The pace of the episodes too have been a refreshing change from Discovery (which I also like, though feels too ruhsed in a bid to try and hold the attention span at times). Picard is one of the few shows on tv where I immediately want to watch the next episode right there and then!
Stewart is on top form too 😃
I agree with Tobar - this feels authentic, with some considerable thought, respect and effort being put into the series.
