Screener Squad: Star Trek: Picard Season 3


After two uneven seasons, the third and final installment of Star Trek: Picard moves the story forward by going back to where it all began — Star Trek: The Next Generation — and everyone’s here! Well, everyone except Tasha and Dr. Pulaski and O’Brien and Guinan and Wesley (although those last two showed up in S2) but you get my point. This is the Trek equivalent of your favorite lineup of your favorite band getting back together for a farewell tour with some surprise musical guests showing up. Once again, Jean Luc Picard is trying to enjoy his retirement when he receives an encrypted distress call from his old friend, Dr. Beverly Crusher. Beverly and her son Jack (yes, Beverly had *another* son) are being hunted by a fearsome adversary for reasons unknown and Jean Luc is the only person she can trust. To save the Crushers, Jean Luc will have to get the band back together, but that’s easier said than done. Season 3 can’t just coast on nostalgia and good will. It also needs to tell a compelling story while acknowledging how these characters have changed in the decades since they last served aboard the Enterprise. If this is truly the last time we’ll ever see the TNG cast on screen, then this season has to be good. Was the mission successful or did the show get sucked into the black hole of lazy fan service? Listen to our critics Harmoni, Jordan, Sarah Jane, and Marco as they review the final season of PIcard, and stick around for the spoiler section afterwards!

Marco Noyola (Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad, Audio Editor)

By day, Marco is a mild-mannered office worker, but by night he is a mild-mannered movie watcher. He does other mild-mannered stuff too.

Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)

Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!



Jordan Cobb (Screener Squad)

Born with a comic book in one hand, a camera in the other, and in front of the television as WrestleMania played out, Jordan Worth Cobb was thus birthed into this crazy world. A Digital Filmmaking major from the University of Central Arkansas, Jordan has done it all in film from directing, writing, editing, and producing in addition to skills involved in film and TV criticism, journalism, and years of podcasting experience. On any given day, her ADHD riddled brain bounces focus from film to pro wrestling to TV to superheroes to noir to video games to espionage and yes, even to sports. She played little league you know. For more of this eccentric nerd, you can follow her on Twitter here and read her original writings on Deepest Corners of My Notebook.



Sarah Jane (Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad)

Sarah Jane was born and raised in Southern California but currently calls Austin, TX her home. She’s seen over 5,700 movies so far with zero plans on stopping. She has a penchant for all things exploitation, and she loves Godzilla with all her heart. Her favorite films are Deep Red, Le Samourai, and Miller’s Crossing. When she isn’t watching movies, she’s busy herding her four cats, her husband, and her 11-year-old kiddo. She’s been a contributor to TalkFilmSociety, Daily Grindhouse, FThisMovie!, Looper, and the Austin Chronicle. You can find her on Twitter and Letterboxd at @fookthis.
