Re: VOY S2: Projections

I'm glad so many fans enjoyed this episode, but definitely not me. The two most annoying characters in the Trek universe (Neelix and Barklay) in yet another holodeck malfunction episode...

Re: DS9 S4: The Visitor

Gotta give up my man card on this one. Made me all misty, not ashamed to say.
TNG has "Inner Light", DS9 has "The Visitor".
Both shows have the same wonderful message, that we all need to hear once in a while.

Don't take life for granted, especially when those you love are concerned.

Re: DS9 S3: Fascination

With all respect to the memory of Majel Barrett, any show the writers create with her in it is a dud. They always cast Lwaxana in the same role, be it with Picard, Odo, or whoever, as a desperate over the hill slut.
It's a shame, Majel deserved better.

Re: ENT S4: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II

I could take or leave these episodes. But that's the great thing about Trek, it appeals to a wide audience, and it seems to have struck a chord with so many here.

The only great thing about this alternate reality is they s#!tcanned the opening theme song.

Evidently the Evil Starfleet has better taste in music.

Re: ENT S4: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part I

I'm tired of these alternate universe / alternate timeline episodes.
I am thinking that maybe the demise of the entire Star Trek franchise had less to do with poor writers, but with the poor decisions of their Marketing Overlords.
At this point in the season, there is definitely a lowering of thoughtful scripts, and a focus on target markets. Ill conceived, but very apparent.

Anyway, I agree that the female uniforms were pretty silly.

But also pretty freaking hot.

Damn you, male hormones! !

Re: ENT S4: The Aenar

Jammer-

This is the first episode that I disagree with you on. I do feel you got a bit too cerebral on this one, a bit too analytical.

I really enjoyed this episode. if I use this kind of analysis when I sat down to eat I probably never would eat. Thinking about where food came from, the processing, the poor animals that gave up their lives for my meal; well it just be too much.
Sometimes, simply put, a good steak is a good steak. Just enjoy.

Re: ENT S4: Daedalus

@Polt

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed this glaring lack of continuity.

ENT certainly isn't the shining star in the Star Trek universe, but the shows have been getting better, like a light bulb getting brighter before it burns out.

But, evidently, the powers that were didn't even watch their own shows.

A pity. I'm sure I'm not the only one going through Trek withdrawal. Thank goodnes for Amazon Prime, and the ability to catch up on shows I wasn't able to watch the first time around.

Re: ENT S3: The Forgotten

I just realized, not everyone knows who Seth McFarlane is, he's the creator of "Family Guy". Funny seeing him on the show!

Re: ENT S3: The Forgotten

I agree with Jammer, except I would give it four stars!

Not much to add, except did anyone else catch Seth McFarlane as the crewman who got chewed by Tripp, at 14.08?

Re: ENT S3: Hatchery

Wow, I must be really smart. Yep, the alien egg peed on the Captain and turned him into Mr. Mom. Wow, never saw that coming.

On a side note, I'm catching up on Star Treks I missed when I was in the Air Force for 22 years. TNG is ny favorite series, although I was stationed in England when it came out, and assumed it was a British produced show because of Picards accent. No Google back then to educate me.

Enterprise is dissapointing, to say the least, but it is satisfying my Trek cravings. I just lower my standards.

So many here like DS9. I never cared for it, but maybe I'm missing something. I'll revisit.

Anyway, I feel so much better getting these random musings off my chest.

Thanks Jammer!

Re: ENT S3: Hatchery

I just started watching this episode, only 10 minutes into it. Haven't read the comments yet, but Archer just got sprayed.

I've always wondered why, when there's a breathable atmosphere in a potentially hazardous situation, they upen their helmets.

I'd be the crewman that says "that's ok, I'll just keep mine on."

We'll see if I'm right. Resuming the episode. ..

Re: Interstellar

Jammer-

Another great review, and I'm also impressed, as always, by the reader comments. This is a great forum!

I'll make my comment brief: I watched Interstellar twice, I loved it. Real Einstein science (although black holes are probably the least scientific movie plot devices available, they do keep the story going) blended with fine moviemaking. And yes, with a soppy sentimental ending. Perfect.

And yes, I stealthily cried when I saw "Up", and even less stealthily when Old Yeller died.

And I will not give up my man card for that, thank you very much.

Re: ENT S3: Extinction

This is the first comment I've made on this outstanding blog.

But oh my god, this show had to be the most painful show of the series to watch. That's saying a lot, considering the lack of writers on this series. Or I should say, the lack of writers that know how to write. Or think.

I'm not saying that watching this show was as painful as, say, being water boarded or some similar torture such as bamboo shoved under my fingernails. I have yet to experience these tribulations, but if I am ever forced to endure them, rest assured I will recall the hour I spent watching this episode, and compare.

If I do, I'll let you know which is worse, but I'm sure it'll be a close call.

I really expected one of the mutants to start asking "where is my precious?? " ala Gollom in the Lord Of The Rings. No disrespect to that bug eyed little creep, he's much more dignified than Starfleets finest with DNA issues.

And LeVar Burton directed this.

I'll forgive him, he had only so much to work with.
