      I paused this to watch a movie and when I came back the first words I heard were "Make Picard Gay". Couldn't have paused at a better moment XD

    2. nr1341

      galactic treaty

    3. shurik121

      I love it how the writers of ST:P don't know what a galaxy is.

    4. nxreliant1864

      Hilarious. Thank you. I needed this after the destruction of the franchise.

    5. ClintonxA

      God what a heap of shit ST: Picard is.

    6. caffeinelife

      This is the perfect antidote to 2020. Thank you!

    7. turgonnaish

      "Who am I kidding of course they didn't" lmao

    8. Mike Bliss

      Was totally waiting for the Ian McKellan name drop after the whole Make Picard Gay thing. That whole sequence was beautiful.

    9. Jacob Ambos

      The last 5 minutes are the most heartbreaking thing you've ever done to us.

    10. Kevin McKeown

      This was cathartic. Thank you

      Funny thing: This Mr. Plinkett review is to me what ST:Picard seems to be to Mr. Plinkett. The latest installment of something that used to be either very clever or very entertaining. Old Plinkett: "Brevity is the soul of wit." Today Plinkett: "Galactic Treaty" for fucking three hours minutes. STOP WASTING MY TIME

    12. Mike Bliss

      Who the hell did those storyboards?

    13. DisobedientSpaceWhale

      Boss: "Why haven't you finished this work yet" Me: "GALACTIC TREATY"

    14. DMD

      in short. please make new interesting stuff and cease the hairy reboot boll*&$x

    15. Volbla

      I want Admiral Pottymouth Fuckface on a t-shirt.

    16. Chris Osborne

      I'm a Star Trek fan and I enjoyed Picard, no point going into why, just thought I'd bring a different opinion to all the vitriol

      1. prolamer7

        you got some money for writing this? :-)

    17. VandalAudi

      Looks like that the writers crinned some stuff from Mass Effect.

    18. Meitti

      Reminds me of the fitting imageboard comic of a stick figure being a fan of a video game called Blue, then reading theres a movie being made out of it. And when he goes to watch it, the title of the movie is written in red color.

    19. Charles Jones

      I was 100% certain that the vague synthetic menace was going to turn out to be the civilization responsible for V'Ger. In a show that was almost nothing but "hey, remember this thing from Star Trek past" moments, they didn't include the one that would have actually made sense. That was the only purely synthetic "species" that has ever been referenced in ST, and we know that they were ungodly powerful. That was the one thing I was actually looking forward to, and it didn't happen.

    20. You Suck

      XD

    21. seeni gzty

      CBS will never reveal their numbers because it will show that this review has more views than their stupid Picard show.

    22. xoeleox

      In theory I would love to hear what people who watched this show without knowing anything about Star Trek previous would say about the 'old' characters, except they're pretty much completely different characters so anything those people would have to say would just be wrong. And sure people grow and change and that's fine, but the whole point of watching/reading stories about characters (i.e. a character study, which is what Picard is self-professed to be) is to *see* them grow and change. Just having them show up and be different defeats the purpose.

    23. Sphinx2k

      The last 5 minutes of this review from <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="89">1:29</a>:40 with no narration is all the comparison we need, show creators have lost their way.

    24. Mr Zoat

      Um. Not happy about Archer being described as a role model. Janeway was clearly a joke, but Archer let an entire species die of a curable disease, murdered a clone of his closest friend and blamed that friend for a slave committing suicide.

    25. Sparky

      Do you honestly feel like Sir Patrick Stewart sold out in ultimately agreeing to do this show? I mean, he worked with Roddenberry and the original creators of Star Trek, did a lot of movies, and was involved with the 'Vision' and purpose of the show(Star Trek). Would he have not known by the story, writing and scenes that the show would be a great departure from the aforementioned? Why would he agree to it? Needs the money?

    26. S

      That wine synthesizer story sounds pretty cool actually

    27. Governor Kolp

      Lots of people seem to like Star Trek but haven't seen much of Deep Space Nine. Go and watch Deep Space Nine if you haven't already.

    28. Lois Sanborn

      I could've sworn I heard her say, "No one makes sense anymore." Everything after that would've made sense then.

    29. isamu64

      Remember when you would go to see your grandparents, and they just wanted to watch stuff that they liked when they were young? I understand why now.

    30. Cnn is Fakenews

      This video probably has more views than all of Discovery and Picard.

    31. Some Canine

      I wish the entertainment industry would learn that you don't need to shove constant cgi action into everything to make it enjoyable.

    32. Herbert West

      hold up, Picard is an old robot now? lol wtf. Kurtzman is such a hack. There's no way this hack show is capable of dealing with the interesting implications of transhumanism.

    33. DefconO1

      Tonight with my Mother I watched Star Trek OG S1E3 "Where No Man Has Gone Before". In the episode Gary Mitchell feels he is becoming a god with Q like powers. Gary Mitchell reminds me of the writers of this show as they are becoming increasingly arrogant and hostile toward the rest of the audience. Their lust for power and control will destroy them.

    34. Krystian Gajdzis

      I'd like to see how the Federation got the Dominion, the Borg, Species 8472, and all the other various alien races and alliances to sign an anti-synth "Galactic Treaty". That one line pretty much destroys all sense of logic in this show.

    35. mkislov

      These reviews have been more entertaining than the show(which I've been watching to be ready for the reviews).

    36. Pocket Dimension

      I was so emotionally unprepared for the Mr. Plinkett Star Trek Picard Review and the remarkable conclusion to the show I was thinking about for twenty years - I cried so hard for the last 15 minutes I had to pull my shirt over my face to hide from my own husband.

    37. Mondatta

      *Plinkett: Space Cop Review* when?

    38. GalironRunner

      Doesnt matter anyways supposedly on the official startrek site they outright admitted the point of the show was to humble picard.

    39. HettGutt

      Sven was right. This review was amazing.

    40. dustisdeadbodies85

      Ahhh.. thanks Worth the wait *NOW GET ON WITH STAR WARS-EP9 YOU HACK FRAUD*

    41. Justin F

      Discovery then Picard. It’s like poetry, they rhyme.

    42. Aaron Rivera

      What about Data's daughter? That's two androids he fought for, explains the the series.

    43. CRIMSON HAWK

      Star Trek use to be good :( Star Wars use to be good :( it is sad the state of things.

    44. Lenriak

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="66">1:06</a>:18 - LMAO! They even changed the lightbulbs to red. Take that, Kryten. Ya lazy smeghead!

    46. David McVey

      It's great to see Desmond reviewing T.V shows.

    47. Imperial Mort

      So instead of a crap version you wanted a different crap version?

    48. reversalmushroom

      Does anyone else think these Plinkett reviews aren't as funny as they used to be? And that's not even counting that they don't have skits or murder jokes anymore. The Baby's Day Out and Cop Dog reviews are way funnier than this. I used to look forward to these, but now, they're just mediocre and don't even have as much analysis as the early reviews did in addition to lacking comedy. Just compare the prequel reviews to the sequel reviews. Did this really need to be a Plinkett review? Because it really doesn't have anything that endeared us to those. If you've lost passion for it and/or don't have any ideas, then stop making them. And can we stop opening them with "X is the most disappointing thing since Y"? Okay, we get it, the prequel reviews are legendary, and that's how it started. You guys complain about filmmakers rehashing things all the time. Do something new and just as good if not better. I don't want to hear any more of these with that opening. The second I hear that, I know the rest of the review is gonna be standard and nothing special. Because if the whole thing had passion, then it would have a different and creative opening.

      1. prolamer7

        It stops being funny when there is no big "nerd" franchise left... ST was in its roots strongest (always could do another timeline), but now it has been sh****ited on also. Its hard to do honest funny video if you know those "writers" are some kind of nobility, which isnt judged by their results as rest of the world, but based upon who they know. Just look up "K" career he bleeds money on every project he touches, he did abortion to entire cinematic universe which was planned as counter to Marvel with his "nu mumm", yet he will still get another projects and big and great one. I guess at this video Mike realized all that fully... that there isnt escape even in fictional worlds, they will hunt you down and get you and remind you that you are something less than them.

      2. Hederach Fedaykin

        @rhaps85 yehp, Star Trek is a subject just too close to the heart for Mike, for him too troll around too much. Well, at least not in the same degree as the previous Plinkett reviews.

      3. rhaps85

        You're right about it not being funny and different than previous plinkett reviews, star trek is just too personal for mike to joke about i guess. It was still very good, just different than usual.

      4. Capt'Wes Starwind

        It wasn't meant to be hilarious and uplifting. It is a farewell letter to a franchise and an ideal.

      5. HettGutt

        1:31:07

    49. sherlockinsomniac

      This is the problem when the very people who detest nerdom and geekdom are given a billion dollar franchise. They have no idea what they;re doing. they're way out if their element here. whoever made this should go back to writing noontime soap and school plays.

    50. reversalmushroom

      I believe I can explain them framing synths. If they just kill them all, everyone will just make more, so simply killing them doesn't solve the problem. So they hijack them and make them commit atrocities so everyone will want there to not be synths. Of course, this is also filled with plot holes like not everyone would want this, and how could they enforce something across the entire galaxy, even among their enemies.

      1. Agon Leed

        that's not called plotholes. That's a basis for drama. BECAUSE not everyone will wnat that, there will be people who MAY fight against it. BECAUSE the galaxy is large, there will be spots where synths are being made or used. plot holes are things that makes no sense even when there is an attempt to explain them. You explained one point and I explained a point behind it. therefore, no plothole

    51. Saul Galloway

      Programmed to reach Picard kinda' makes sense actually. Mad knew that Picard would for sure respect and protect artificial life like he had done so fervently back in the day. It's also safe to assume he'd have friends in high places to better do so.

    52. Bonkatsu12

      .... galactic treaty

    53. cripplehawk

      Gene Roddenberry's ashes are probably spinning at Warp +9000

    54. Lildoc911

      The only things the writers did regarding those stories were the total glasses of wine consumed...before each day of shooting.

    55. T K.

      I truly hate that guy... (Kurtzman)

    56. John Blough

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="3490">58:10</a> might be the most poignant and hilarious part.

    57. Lucius Sulla

      It's just a *group of people* doing what it is in their nature to do, and that is to sh*t all over everything.

    58. Parker Beck

      You keep showing clips of the older series' and films as if they have any relation to the current offerings. No one currently working in Star Trek has ever seen a single episode of anything prior to 2001.

      1. prolamer7

        monkey gang... they must do this a lot to mark their teritory...

    59. The Kittums Show

      Glad i downloaded all my picard off the pirate bay

    60. Dac85

      CBS has decided for you that you don't want old Trek. In a few years, CBS will state that people just don't like Trek because no one liked these new shows. Over a decade after that, someone will make an actual Trek that's faithful to the classics and everyone will act shocked that it's a success.

      1. prolamer7

        @Agon Leed I dont want to be rude, but you are missing main ST theme... just watch last minutes of all good things.... there its explained. We dont know a 1% about world we live in... thats what people thought at 19th century also...

      2. Agon Leed

        I'm old TNG era. That's the time i grew up wathching it. From not understandnig to fully understanding. '84 born and 90s raised. TNG's MAIN idea and focus was exploration. and it connected BECAUSE in that era, we really didn't know MUCH, at least in general, other parts of our own world EARTH. Unlike today where it's pretty much common knowledge about other people's cultures and identities and way of life. Thta was NOT common knowledge back then. There were still "findings" that we kids looked to National Geographic books or t.v. show to learn. We were still trying to save the rainforest with music and field trips. There was a program D.A.R.E. and the knowledge of drug use and abuse in our OWN nation wasn't even understood that well, let alone other nations. There was just so much to still learn. Today, we pretty much have all that info. And anyone who doesn't..is either a child or willfully ignorant. There's no NEED to make a show based on that focus. It simply won't connect. Back then, you were drawn into the show and trying to help the main person or group figure out a problem with communication and way of life between cultures. Now, everyone pretty much have the answers. It's all about whether you choose to do it or not. The learning is done. The exploration has happened. Starfleet, aka America, has most of what it needs. Is the home base, in a lot of ways, for all that we know. Now it's all about whether we fuck it up or move forward to better. Also, a lot of the tech used back then, on screen perfect video, tablets, touch screen this and thats, all foreign then. Now, all we're missing is pretty much the ACTUAL space travel. So the show HAS to move in another direction. You ever just sit there and watch TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise adn such NOW? it's great nostalgia, but the ACTUAL connection isn't there. As an old trek fan, I'm glad they moved to another direction. Discovery was better than Picard. It had elements of episodic standalone episodes while also bringing together a full season story. Picard was good as it shows a retired commander who's recapturing his sense of adventure and journey. Getting together a group who doesn't have to actually follow his orders, but through respect for who he is and what he's going for, they follow anyhow. Without his rank, without protocol respect. he is still, PICARD

    61. Alcovitch

      This was excessively long and boring. Complete miss. You spend so much time repeating jokes too. It would have been far better had you simply concluded the season the way you've reviewed the rest of it up to date with a Review with rich. Those were super entertaining. This was a DRAG> and we waited a while for this one. Sorry guys, i like your stuff but this wasn't great.

      1. HettGutt

        1:31:07

      2. Capt'Wes Starwind

        It wasn't meant to be hilarious and uplifting. It is a farewell letter to a franchise and an ideal.

    62. Scott S.

      Pickard could not fight those assasins. he was just to old for it. it was not realistic. picard does not have super powers.

      1. prolamer7

        @Agon Leed but if its dumb beyond reason like 93y old man beating group of alien assasins...

      2. Agon Leed

        NOT REALISTIC As we watch a show about synths and Borgs, and space travel and an alive android friend

    63. Daxam Might

      STD and STP are straight up trash. I always loved Sisko's baseball illustration to the Prophets about linear life.

    64. TREL

      Another classic shitripping. Also, that porn groove at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="3000">50:00</a>

    65. Kasper van Hausen

      STAR TREK Picard made me cry so many times, especially the room scene; How can you ruin such a great TV-Show and Universe of 50 years in just 1 Season? It's beyond my understanding. My Girlfriend and I had to force us through the Season (We still wonder why and how we manage to got through with it). I never liked STE, mostly because of the awful intro and the very stereotypical crew (incl. a sexy Vulcan in a tight catsuit), but it's still a much better and more intelligent Star Trek than what got made under the name of ST in the last 5 year. Gonna watch Voyager now, to find my inner peace again.

      1. prolamer7

        @Agon Leed Kasper do not read that Aon trash he is trolling at every comment, he either paid or found troll area for him

      2. Agon Leed

        Sexy Vulcan in a tight suit and an intro killed the whole show of Enterprise? You experienced Star Trek for 50+yrs and stilljust have a gf and typing youtube comments? OR are you some young person jumping on "I hate new trek" train

    66. Dan Noonan

      Who's the chick who played rose in episode 7 of star wars

    67. angrydwarfofdoom

      Enterprise has looked a LOT better in retrospect. I guess loving your source material will do that.

    68. GhostOfDaniel

      Picard is like watching your dad and your childhood die at the same time.

    69. Shaun Train

      Wow! What a tour de force review! So much better than the 'Picard' series. More laughs, better editing, and serious analysis underneath it all. Bravo!

    70. TurtleWrites

      I kinda liked Discovery, the whole mycellial network thing is a fun super weird/dumb sci-fi thing that could bear some exploring, and the whole magical beasts and where to find them schtick with the Tardigrade, I even liked the goatee universe and even the Klingon storyline, it was like all the 21st century tropes spooled together in a gritty Star Trek take, with the underlying current of "Yeah, we're explorers." Second season started off with some interesting ideas, then time-travelled itself to death. Picard, there are only two episodes I liked, and those were the boring episodes. The only about the society of nuns who tell all truth and spare no feelings, and the shameless pizza episode that actually had some good takes on how to deal with trauma. But yeah, it's not Star Trek. Also cannot forgive the blatant ripoff of Mass Effect. Have you ever seen Men In Black? Yeah, this is Picard running around in an 'Edgar' suit.

      1. Agon Leed

        You captured Discovery right lmao. But I like Picard. You HAVE to see it as he's retired. it IS Star Trek..just focused on Picard, hence his hame in the title. HIS life is that of a retired man who is now trying to recapture that sense of adventure. Kinda thrust into it, but he's taking it and not running from it. He doesn't have the fleet protocols to make others respect him out of sheer rank alone. Without even knowing him. He has to find people that are willing to at least TRY to take a trip with him. But in doing so, because they aren't under protocols, THEY get to choose HOW they act and respond. And they COULD choose to just say fuck it, and leave him. BUT out of who he is..not just his past, but the type of person he is. Strong willed and righeous and compelling, though they react as civilians..cause that's exactly what they are, they STILL give him the respect star fleet would. The respect of following their captain and trusting his ways. And he earning their respect by learning who they are and adjusting to their ways. Taht's exactly who Piccard was in TNG

    71. MrBrunicardi

      I know Disney already killed Star wars but could you please revive it and Then make the kill proper i beg you sir Plinkett

    72. Daniel Price

      I feel so bad for Gene Roddenberry. He must be rolling in his grave now.

      1. Prince Solomon

        His tornado of fury started with the TNG movies... it only got worse (JarJar Abrams, Discovery, Picard...)

      crappy story with a ton of good-looking people on screen

      By the way, who made those awesome stills starting at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="164">2:44</a>?

      1. Prince Solomon

        It says Freddie Williams II on the top of those stills

        Freddie Williams II. Comic book artist featured on a few episodes of Best of the Worst.

    76. QuickSilver

      Nothing about this show was exciting or even remotely interesting.. the characters sucked ALL OF THEM. The best review for this show is simply "what a fucking waste". It has zero rewatch value either.

    77. Alex Hunter

      Good grief, that was boring. Gave up after 20mins.

      1. ayanithtalreign

        I felt the same way about Picard, brother. Barely made it 15 minutes into the first episode.

    78. whatevr99

      Remember all those discussions about which captain was better, Kirk or Picard? Kirk won.

      1. Prince Solomon

        TNG Picard & TOS + I-VI Kirk are both awesome in their own way, the TNG movies don´t feature TV show Picard, it´s an elderly action moron that couldn´t be farther from the original Picard (also Generations Kirk was meh), this ST:Picard Picard is the dumb one from the movies, it´s not TV show Picard (as Plinkett proves with countless scenes from TNG which contradict his personality in ST:Picard). The point is, Patrick Steward doesn´t understand the character of Picard, even though he played him for years. It should be clear, that he was just reading lines, smart lines written by smart writers, NOT BY HIM!!! Steward thought a sand buggy scene in NEMESIS was awesome and definitely fit into Star Trek..... -_- Also Jonathan Frakes thinks Star Trek should be an action movie/show ..... -_- so basically, those actors don´t know shit about their own characters and the franchise they starred in for years.

      2. Justin F

        Have you seen Star Trek V?

    79. TheMorawOne

      At <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="800">13:20</a> I really felt as if I forgot to take my schizo meds today.

    80. wampa_stompa

      Anyone else feel the downfall of Star Trek started with whoever decided to hire JJ Abrams and friends all those years ago?

      1. prolamer7

        They were given power to do what they want and someone else money to do it... just like spoiled milionaire children they are... and so they trashed it kicked it and moving on... for them life is one big party paid by someone else

      2. Prince Solomon

        Have to disagree. Clearly the downfall started with ST: GENERATIONS and the other godawful TNG movies that already betrayed the legacy of the TNG tv show long before Jar Jar Abrams and Kurtzman came into the picture and ruined everything even more.
