Josh Reviews Star Trek: Picard: Season Three — Part Two!
I enjoyed the first half of Star Trek: Picard season three, and the second half did not disappoint. I am so impressed at how completely they turned around this show. I strongly disliked the first two seasons of Picard, but new show-runner Terry Malalas and his team did an incredible
