Television and Cinema Verities #18

“Each time I sat and watched Generations I found myself increasingly dismayed at the overall impact of the character.  I found him too placid, too passive, too introspective (almost to the point of being depressing in places.)  I also learned a lot about how we shifted the Next Generation series from the television screen to the big screen.  We did it partly successfully.”
– Patrick Stewart discusses Captain Picard in Generations, (1994), in Dreamwatch #31, 1997: “A Star for all seasons,” by John Mosby, page 14.  The film will be reviewed this Friday, right here.
