Binged it and enjoyed it! I think Discovery is a better show despite its questionable continuity.
But Picard did a lot of things right. It was much more continuity based and also managed to tap into a very Star Wars/Firely kind of vibe. I really enjoyed all of the new characters and appreciated the various cameos.
We watched two episodes a day for five days. I fell pretty much the same way about it as you do. I hope it returns for a second season. We haven't watched the second season of Discovery yet.
I understand that both Picard and Discovery have been renewed.
I still have the second half of Discovery season 2 to watch, then I'll start Picard.
I'm reading through the coverage on Ex Astris Scientia, Bernd Schneider's Star Trek site.
