Re: VOY S3: Macrocosm

You know . . I'm a little over halfway thru a rewatch ( The Doctor's back in sickbay after returning from the miners ) and it's a great episode.

I believe Jammer, like most critics & reviewers, has altered his perceptions unavoidably.
Meaning: when you watch 100s and 100s of episodes and films, thinking "what can I say about this on a scene by scene critical overview level ?", it's gonna' change your focus just a wee bit and give you a case of criticitis !

You're beyond "taking it in" and now you're making notes.

And ? . . in the case of the old school published reviewers, they ended -up striving for a pithy blurb that might make the ads.

Whether it's finding the faults or proclaiming the glories, it's a different brain in use . . and with 4 billion sites with comment sections these days ? . . we're ALL digital critics !!

Re: VOY S2: Elogium

First off . . quite a thing to see the comment threads stretching for up to 10 years ( so far ! ) . . huh ?

Less than a week ago, I kind'a fell into a cherry-picking binge w/ Voyager again. I began w/ some of my biggest faves: "Timeless", "Relativity", "Blink of An Eye" . . . than started using Wikipedia's episode listings to zero in on other candidates.

3 days ago, or so, I discovered Jammer's Reviews when Googling info on an ep and have been referring to it since. Or just reading thu the seasons for other perspectives.

You know . . I've never been a heavily "judgemental fan" of anything I'm into.
Never a "The Beatles rule !! . . McCartney's lame, but go Fabs !!" . . what ?!?

Mind you . . I'm not blindly accepting of any & everything either. I like lots from any show or musical group "less" then their other output . . . but I still don't have that "well That sucked !" gene.

I rewatched "Projections" on "NetTricks" based on Jammer's review, and let it roll into "Elogium" . . which I then fully enjoyed.

Until I read the 99% of comments here pronouncing it "1 Star Awful !!"

Many points made that saw me go "Oh . . huh ! . . yeah . . . Damn it !"
Sure . . Wildman's been w/ child 6 months and just confirmed it ??

But I found no embarrassing acting from Jennifer.
Quite the range, actually.

But then ? . . I've always loved her and that voice !
That voice that gives me a shimmer across my shoulders, and then drapes warm velvet over it !

I know I could go on about all the nasty realities you digital critics made me consider . . but I believe I'll leave it there, with a tattered warm velvet drape to protect my foolish idealism . . . .
