  1. I'm looking forward to this series! And it seems from one commercial on TV that I saw for it, William Shatner will be a guest star in one episode.

    1. It is quite possible, they say the second season might have some other guests from Picard's old crew too.

  3. I don't have CBS All Access but, maybe I can watch it on Amazon Prime. It looks to be full of adventure.

    PS - you look very wintry in your blue and white outfit with the snowflake. I have a lot of snow here if you want some.

    1. I always put on my snowy outfit in January :) We haven't had any snow this winter, but we had two weeks of white frost and it is melting today.

  6. Not my cuppa as I don't do any Star Trek or Star Wars, but hopefully it's good for the fans who are looking forward to it.

    1. Fingers crossed, but I hear he accepted the role only if it is not the same series, and I don't think fans will like that. I don't want Picard the action hero.
