Re: TNG S1: Too Short a Season

Haha... look at Matt up there trying to take one of the dopier episodes of S1 TNG and turn it into some kind of political statement. That’s more misguided than even this episode’s premise, which is quite an accomplishment.

Oh well, I’m sure at the time it musta seemed profound or something. lol

Mooooving on, yes... this episode was largely a snooze fest and seemed to scream at every commercial break, “Why are we doing this?!?” It was plodding, dull, uninspired, and yet... mostly harmless.

Not the worst speed bump in TNG’s road to excellence by a long shot.

Re: TNG S1: Angel One

A lot of grandiose blathering and holier-than-thou diatribes by a motley cast of self-appointed critical thinkers.

The episode wasn’t that great, either.

Re: TNG S1: The Big Goodbye

As I type this, I inhabit a world where a cup of coffee has to have “Warning this is hot” printed on the side and commercials where CGI cars do crazy stuff have to have “Do not attempt.”

Yet in Star Trek’s world, a crew is set off in a ship with holodecks and nobody really has a clue just what they can and cannot do.

Sadly, I think I prefer Trek’s world. Granted it could allow for some accidents and mishaps, but this world just caters to the lowest common denominator of stupid and fear of lawsuits.

Yeah... I’d definitely take my chances with an occasional holodeck adventure over a constant barrage of mouth-breathing mediocrity. haha

Re: TNG S1: Haven

For almost 3 years, Matt L. up there was the only comment on this review.

After 18 months or so checking to see if anyone else had responded, he probably got fed up. haha

Live long and prosper, Matt L... wherever you are!

Re: TNG S1: Where No One Has Gone Before

Finally! A half-way decent S1 episode!

Brought crashing down by portraying a distant part of the Universe as the Magic Kingdom.

Re: TNG S1: The Last Outpost

Every time they showed the Ferengi down on the planet I heard Yakety Sax playing in my head.

The level of incompetence in their portrayal is so epic it boggles the mind. A lot of people are involved in getting a show from idea to script to filmed.... Nobody at any point yelled out, “What the Hell are we doing here!?!” haha

Why was the background of the Ferengi ship white in the viewscreen? No budget left to construct a set? Why was the Ferengi’s head 9 feet tall and filled the entire viewscreen? Why were the Ferengi wearing fur?? haha

Oy vey... it is an ABSOLUTE MIRACLE that TNG ever got a season 2.

Re: TNG S1: Encounter at Farpoint

Oh good grief... I’m writing this during the saucer re-connecting scene, so I’ve got oodles of time.

Perhaps it’s just aging not being kind, but this is so so so bad. haha... and yet it’s my beloved TNG!! Injust finished a run-through of Voyager, and I’ve been dreading re-watching TNG because of S1.

The 2 stations up front by the viewscreen are just sort of out there with like 20 feet of open space around them and they’re rickety. Watching them shake when anybody used them was a nice allegory for the show itself trying to find its feet.

Worf points a phaser at the viewscreen. hahaha... oh boy, yeah, we’re not off to a good start here. I’m glad they at least cut the scene later where they teach him potty training.

Troi. Yeesh. Soap opera stars of the time watched this and cringed at her performance.

And despite it all... I still kinda like it. I just need to get through S1, I think I can... I think I can...

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

2nd run through of Voyager complete, and awwwww... I’m always sad to see them go.

I agree with most of the rest of you that the show bungled its true potential, but there’s still something about the characters that makes me miss them when they’re gone.

Of course, I get that way over DS9 and TNG, too. Maybe I’m just a sap. haha

Speaking of which... *grumble*... it’s finally time to re-watch TNG. I’ve delayed this as long as I can, please keep me in your thoughts as I slog through the DREADFUL season 1.

I must stay strong...

Re: VOY S7: Homestead

Well said, Mr. Bunkum!

It was kind of touching watching Neelix leave, and it gave me a melancholic vibe as well.

All these chowderheads blathering on and on about “Neelix was annoying, or Neelix was jealous, or Neelix wasn’t on par with the great literary characters of fiction” have a point.

But they’re still chowderheads because they go ON AND ON ABOUT IT, even at his touching and well-done departure episode. I mean seriously, we get it... would someone please give them a tasty Hot Pocket with a $10 gift card for Candy Crush Saga already to shut them up?!?

And for all the “Why are there Talaxians way out here” crowd... give me a break!!! Every time Voyager turns, they show it leaning over to do so (Watch the opening credits). That’s an aerodynamic maneuver for a craft with wings, certainly not useful in space where there’s no air! Seriously, this show could be ripped apart by a 5 year old if they wanted to.

Fortunately, they don’t want to. They want to be entertained. You could learn a lot from a 5 year old. haha

Re: VOY S7: Author, Author

Too funny so many people saying, “I can’t believe the Doctor wouldn’t know the crew would be upset being portrayed like that!”

Voyager was ahead of its time in this regard, because most of you are probably exactly like him. Every time you log into your favorite social media site of choice, and scream and yell to a pre-selected echo chamber about how [Insert Democrats or Republicans] and their supporters are evil and the scum of the earth, or all those who disagree with your opinion on [Insert Cause Of The Day] are uncaring low lifes, you behave *exactly* like the Doctor does in this episode.

Self-aggrandizing egomaniacal simps. Probably never devoted even 5 minutes to truly trying to see your “enemy”s point of view, or at the least even try to empathize with why they may think/be the way they are.

Nope... it’s a me me me world and woe be to anyone who thinks or believes differently. Pretty much the Doctor’s attitude when literally ALL the crew expressed their displeasure with his versions of them.

As of my typing this, the echo-chambers du jour are Facebook and Twitter, but you future readers substitute whatever’s popular in your time. Hopefully by your time people have learned some objective reasoning skills. haha

Re: VOY S7: Prophecy

Oh yeah... and to TJ up there on October 23, 2015... exactly what battle are you fighting with the human-centric plot? Were you under the impression there ARE actual Klingons pirating terrestrial cable programming and watching this episode aghast at their on-screen treatment?

It’s a show by humans, and to the best of my knowledge *viewed* only by humans (Not that I’m entirely sold on Area 51’s purpose haha) and thus the majority of plot points will necessarily tilt towards humanity.

But regardless if that’s a good or bad thing, I ask once again what is your enmity with it? These Star Trek aliens don’t really exist, ya know...

Re: VOY S7: Prophecy

Very well said, grumpy_otter, from a year+ ago.

Sometimes it’s just enjoyable to watch the people we LIKE do stuff. That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.

Reading the comments on all these episodes would almost imply a Voyager episode had to be Citizen Kane level before people would say, “ OK... yeah, I enjoyed it.” haha

One could almost get the impression (mistaken, I’m sure) that all these people watched the episodes and never once stopped out of extreme displeasure... but for some reason felt a need afterwards to pontificate their whole-hearted disapproval on sites such as this.

Guilt, perhaps, that they enjoyed something lesser than their standards of excellence and need to vent it out? ;-)

Who knows... their motivations shall, and should, remain their own. But to come full circle, I’m with you. Sometimes it’s enough just to watch people we like doing stuff in their own environment.

Re: VOY S7: Repentance

Perhaps I’m dense, but why is a justice system having a death penalty that serves a modicum of revenge automatically a bad thing?

Everyone here discussing this is coming from the perspective of never having had a loved one murdered. So it’s just hypothetical posturing.

But for someone who HAS had it happen, I can try and empathize and it’s easy to see why an eye for an eye might be comforting.

1) You don’t wake up every day and know your loved one is dead while the person that did it is cared for, fed, and given medical treatment when needed. And oh yeah, every paycheck when your taxes are deducted you know you’re paying for it.

2) Every parole hearing, every occasional news story referencing the crime, you have to relive it. Life sentences are not always that; even Charles Manson had parole hearings. It’s easy for us to say that’s just how it works, but I can’t even begin to imagine the horror compounded on top of the original crime that as long as they live, I’m never really free of them.

Now that said, I can think outside my box and understand those who advocate for life imprisonment. IF it was truly life imprisonment, no regular parole hearings or time off for good behavior BS.

It’s a complicated issue for sure, but I would tend to err on the side of the victims and in that regard I don’t entirely see why revenge is automatically wrong. If someone brutally murdered one of my loved ones, I would find it much easier to eventually “move on” knowing the person responsible was gone. And wouldn’t I deserve that comfort, whether we call it revenge or peace of mind?

Re: VOY S7: Lineage

Some of y’all are just so funny. Like the 2 people that “just had to tell off Michael because of pent up frustration.”

hahaha... oh boy, OK. Pent up frustration from some random dude’s repetitive comments on Star Trek Voyager episodes at a website called Jammer’s Reviews.

Remind me when the Zombie Apocalypse happens to be nowhere close to those 2, cause they have “first to go” written all over them. ;-)

And fwiw, Michael... wherever you may be... you are (were) kinda cloyingly repetitive. lol

Re: VOY S7: Imperfection

Funny how two people can watch the same thing and yet see it entirely differently.

For instance, many of you are extolling the acting prowess of Icheb in this episode. To which I almost fell off my chair the first time I read it. The guy has the acting chops of a tongue depressor (with emphasis on ‘depress.’)

His range is two-fold: 1) Dull. 2) Not in the scene.

And that shirt... eegah, they need to find an Intergalactic Ren Faire and drop Icheb off.

Re: VOY S6: Muse

OK... while we’re on the subject of the Universal Translator, my favorite part is how when they first hail a brand new species it works right off the bat before the other species has even said anything.

Now *that’s* some damn fancy technology right there.

But yeah, we all get it. The show would be tedious if every time they met a new species, 20 minutes was devoted to them spewing gibberish at each other until the UT could accumulate enough data to function.

I’m OCD enough to kind of let these sorts of things bother me, yet whimsical enough to usually be able to ignore them. But not always. The hailing a brand new species and the UT working right off the bat gets me every time. haha

Re: VOY S6: Spirit Folk

Oh whatever, y’all!!

I bet all of you nitpicking this episode to death probably watched all 42 hours of LOTR and then said, “Why didn’t Frodo just fly on one of the Eagles to Mt. Doom and drop the ring?!”

haha... no no, I kid. This ep was a real stinker for plot holes and contrivances for sure. A shame, really.

Fortunately I like the characters enough that I watched it and was *mostly* entertained, like I do with a lot of Voyager’s “less than stellar” episodes.
