Re: TNG S2: The Outrageous Okona

I'm surprised that Jammer and a lot of others actually like the B plot with Data trying to learn (about) humor.

I first saw this episode as a teenager and, coming from Central Europe, it was pretty much I was exposed to (American-style) stand-up comedy. I thought it was quite the opposite of funny, amusing, pleasant, humorous, you name it. I hated it so much that I'd avoided anything resembling stand-up for the next 15 years, until the horrible feeling this episode gave me finally wore off and I discovered that some stand-up is actually quite nice.

So... the pretty lame plot with Mr. Charming Rogue seemed really nice to me by comparison.

Re: TNG S7: Inheritance

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned the logical flaw in what the holographic Soong said. He explained to Data that Juliana had eventually left him. He must have recorded the holographic message and placed it in Juliana's head while she was still with him - I doubt they met again later (at which point he would have had to open her head and modify the previously recorded holo-message to include the information that she'd left him), since the story doesn't even hint at that.

Other then that, I found most of this episode very dull, like many other posters. In general, I find a lot of the Data-heavy episodes in the last few seasons dull, as many of them consist of Data repeating "I at not capable of feeling [insert feeling]." several times. Data keeps reminding us he's a machine and the rest of the crew keeps treating him like a human being. Meh.
