Dark discoveries abound on ‘Picard’
As season two of Picard lurches toward the finish line, the creators are able to deliver a fairly engaging payoff that tackles several aspects of the season-long storyline, even as they churn through a bunch of routine action sequences and needless detours in the process of getting there. "Hide and Seek" isn’t great Star Trek, but it’s pretty good season-two Picard, which I suppose is the problem. It’s probably the best episode since the second installment of this over-padded arc of a season, but it’s still not especially good.
This show just can’t stop getting in its own way even when it’s doing things right. There’s too much contrived silliness in here to make it something to recommend, even though there are scenes and ideas that I thought worked in the context of what we’ve seen this season.
