I have not yet seen it. I do not have CBS All Access. I have seen one episode that CBS threw up on Youtube. It really did not leave me with wanting more. But it might be one of those things in which I need to see several episode before it pulls me in. I got to have a reason to want to see an elderly Picard.
I think my big question when being confronted with shows like this, is, why do we have the need to look back? Is this some type, or form, of nostalgia manifesting itself. I am starting to cringe when I see them pull a character out of mothballs just to have a continuation of something we felt back then. Can writers and directors not come up with something unique while recreating the same type of magic that we felt in those series? Is it too much to ask for something fresh in perspective of a future sci-fi that does go where no man has gone before? Maybe this time have them to actually explore the far reaches of our imagination? I don't know, I really only want to remember these Star Trek characters the way, I remember them. From those old episodes, that I pull out and watch, occasionally.
Before, the characters, in their future, was left to our imagination. I guess without watching the series, my question, has my imagination been molested, to those who have watched it?
