Re: ORV S2: All the World Is Birthday Cake

I'm suprised, Jammer, that you didn't say one nice thing about this episode besides "it started out well." Despite the arbitrary and inconsistent rules, I thought this was a strong episode, on par with "Home" for the best of the season so far. The new Xeleyan was great, the Prefect gave a strong performance, and most importantly, it tested the crew's critical thinking skills to come up with a way to rescue their crewmembers. I see you checked out of this episode, but I was fully engaged throughout. And if I may, I will end this review with "first time caller, long time listener"... I have been a big fan for years and love your reviews. :)

Re: TOS S1: The Corbomite Maneuver

While this is an enjoyable episode to watch for a variety of reasons, it occurs to me that the twist at the end fundamentally ruins the whole plot: it reveals that Balok has lied about everything up to that point, which shows bad faith, but Kirk and Co fail to ask the obvious follow-up question, namely, what if they had failed the test Balok set?

If there was never any intention to destroy the ship, the whole exercise becomes embarrassingly pointless, and Balok is basically a cosmic prankster. If he DID intend to destroy the ship for failing the test, he's an amoral killer no better than Dr Mengele. Rather than share a drink and a laugh with the guy, Kirk should make one of his trademark speeches about the value of human dignity and storm off in high dudgeon.

Otherwise a fine episode. :)

Re: BSG S3: Maelstrom

This was the first episode where I cared about Kara/was interested in an episode revolving around her. Brought me to tears at the end.
