Okay, as you may know, I live in France.
So until a few hours ago, I was studying possible options for watching Star Trek Picard's pilot episode directly from La Barre, Jean-Luc Picard's hometown. The small village of La Barre is located roughly 276 miles south-east from where I live. It's a four hour drive, no big deal.

However, it's in the middle of nowhere and there's just... nothing ! There are no hotels, no restaurants, no bars, not even a single retail shop ! Just private homes and farms. And of course, probably no public internet access.
I guess I'll probably scare the hell out of the locals if I just show up in my Starfleet uniform, asking for a WiFi spot so I could watch star Trek Picard on Amazon Prime... :roll:
I understand they have a good vineyard. :roll:

Riverside, Iowa has owned Captain Kirk. Are you sure La Barre is not just miffed that a Yorkshireman was cast for the part?

Then Again I found it a head scratcher myself. I understand the name Picard is important in the realms of exploration, and a goodly name it is. But Patrick Steward is about as far from French as you can get outside of Hong Kong. A better actor you will not find, or a worse Frenchman. I've wondered from the start why it was not say Captain Drake or Hawkins, good Plymouth names those. Or cast a French actor, at least French Canadian if you can't get a real Frenchman.

Well, Steward as Picard is what we have.

FYI I did not know you are from France.

Minor correction; Yorkshireman. Patrick Stewart is from the Huddersfield area.

Corrected. That such a small island would have so many regions.

As Others See Us

First you have the Scots, who keep the Sabbath, and anything else they can get.
Then the Welsh, who pray on their knees, and on their neighbors.
The Irish, who have no idea what they are fighting for, but will fight for it anyway.
Last there are the English, who claim to be a self-made nation.
Thus reliving the Almighty of a dreadful responsibility.

Now THAT was a great way to start my day! Thanks for that. Personally, I've been excited about everything I've seen regarding the new show. I'm really looking forward to it.
