Captain Picard: Tomb Hunter?

IIRC the show toyed with that for an episode or two, and I had hopes it would be a major story arc, hunting down alien antiquities so as to solve a major puzzle.

Andreas Katsulas in the movie Sunset

He plays the chauffeur/bodyguard and he offers up amusing non-verbal responses to James Garner's questioning of him. This is due to his "Narns" being squeezed by Garner.

After years of saying the Amber Chronicles deserve a series, I might be getting my wish. Googling it, I see Altered Carbon is going to be adapted as well.

Good things are happening! Hopefully the...

Maybe he was using a dash of irony? I'll guess that he read about the show, was a bit intimidated by its complexity, and what he actually means is that it would take a lot of effort to follow along,...

I like the sound of it

I was just watching a youtube video summary of a great show from the 90s, Brimstone, that had a similar vibe. I really liked that show. It even had Peter Woodward in its first/pilot episode. This is...

I was fond of the aide to the Founder

The one from the species that got "uplifted". He really sold the part he played. I can still remember how he described his people, before the Founders breathed sentience into them.

I like the character Garak, the tailor/spy. He exuded that knowing air of "nobody here is quite like they seem". It's like he was watching the show along with you.

White Tulip comes to mind as a perfect episode. It was Walter-centric, it had a lot say, it referenced both the past and the future of the show, it was perfectly written science fiction, and it had...

So, yeah, he's a quintessential B5 person,...
