tng with child

Watching Star Trek: TNG with Child who is utterly horrified by how very eighties all those future shoulder pads and love of neon are. Though we are now into fourth/fifth season and getting pre-nineties fashion which seems marginally less disturbing.

Hee. Yes, the futurism of TNG really does date badly.

I can understand that, but I also remember being grateful that by the time of TNG, people had gotten over the idea that the future was going to be white with chrome trim and rounded edges, inhabited by men and women in identical white or silver bodysuits or coveralls.

LOL yes, in some ways TNG is worse than TOS. TNG is real enough the silly stuff is very noticeable. TOS now is like plays with cardboard sets you have to just ignore.

I mean I still can't get over the 1980s beige plastic all over the Enterprise interior.

(I don't have a Star Trek icon??? wtf.)

LOL! I can well imagine... I think I would have the same reaction, if I were to watch it again today. :-) It's actually really interesting that scifi works are always so massively dated by design!
