Star Trek TNG as an Adult
It's been on my list to get back around to checking out as an adult. I finally did and it's not a show that's sticking with me very well. I'm not feeling it.
I can tell the show is really good in some ways after findings it's feet after the first few seasons. But it's just so... early 90s. There was a way they made TV then and it just feels like it. It's a product of it's time. I can't quite get over it.
In shows like this I really miss an overarching storyline. I guess I take it for granted now that most shows have one, but back then almost every episode was self contained and it was rare for big changes to carry over week to week.
This means it's easy to watch any random episode of TNG without context. It also means it's less compelling overall as a series.
But as I said, TNG isn't bad. It's just very 90s and I can't deal with that style anymore.
I watched some of the better episodes and then decided to move on.
I might be on a quest for Star Trek now. I'm really interested to see if any of the newer ones can hold my attention. I remember Voyager being my favorite because I watched it every week for the entire series. I've never watched Deep Space 9 but maybe I should give it a chance? And the newest Star Trek, Enterprise, I think I may have watched one or two episodes but that's it.
I'll keep you apprised of my Star Trek attempts.
