I know digital de-aging has been a thing for awhile, and Marvel has done a pretty bang up job at it since Brat Pack Robert Downey Jr. fought with mustached Roger Sterling in Captain America: Civil War. But this shot of Data from the new Picard show? Oy vey ist mir! He’s so bloated and puffy, like he’s holding in a comical amount of water in his cheeks. And his eyes… why are they so small? I get that a streaming TV show doesn’t have the budget of a billion dollar film, but that’s no excuse. If you can’t do it right then don’t. Use old Brent as is. Recast. Use a sock puppet. Anything other that whatever that is. Oh, god! It’s burned into my brain!
Data died in Nemesis. This is weird, chubby cousin Datum.
It’s funny how these new showrunners are so devoted to the bits of canon most of us would like to forget.
“ARGH! They’re mad that we ignored the smooth-headed Klingons!”
“Alright. Next show, we go over everything with a fine toothed comb and make sure it’s all correct!”
