First episode seems to be off to a good start.

That is all.

I think it has very good potential!  Need next episode... Make it so!

Please tell me it was thought provoking and less about roundhouse kicks

Picard is presented with some confusing info and has to figure things out. However the plot is not resolved. It looks like it will be a serial story, not episodic.

So far the updated look and feel seems to be a respectful blending of old and new, no jarring redesigns in the first episode.

However things are not the same.

There is a lot more action than a typical TNG episode would have but I didn't mind.

Mr. Analog

Interesting. I'll have to give this one a look

I would also say more strife that a TNG episode as well.  Feels more like the TNG movies than the TV Series IMO, but by no means bad in anyway.  I quite enjoyed the updated version of Picard as a TV Show, and also that it follows the Prime timeline after the destruction of Romulas (this is not a spoiler, it was in multiple trailers/articles/press releases prior to release).

I actually haven't followed the hype so it's news to me

Well it won't wreck your experience knowing that ahead of time IMO.  For me it actually helped keep some questions out of my way to enjoy the episode as it was presented.  For my wife, not knowing that part, had her confused for the first bit.

Thanks for reminding me that this is out now, I'd forgotten about it.  It's on the watch list now.
Prayin' for a 20!

Ya good catch, at the very least with minor changes they are following the prime timeline which does include the movies.

Mr. Analog
