They could explain his age with a throw away joke and save money. Seeing that the season 1 cast is back has pretty much sucked any excitement I had out of me. I don’t care if Professor X saves them. Patrick isn’t playing Jean Luc he’s playing Charles from Logan.
Watched the first episode of Season 2. There were a number of things that bothered me. A couple moments that weren't bad. By the end I was halfway considering sticking with but the preview of the upcoming season looked like a slog so I think I'm out.
Edit: I’m full of shit I watched the second episode. I know I’m gonna regret watching this when it turns out this whole thing is about Jean Luc getting over his mommy issues but it’s hard to say no to a show with Picard in it.
