Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

Jammer you rule. Your reviews are great and I agree with them 99% of the time which is wild.

This comment probably won't be seen, but my biggest issue was that it seemed clear to me that the original idea was for the spore drive to be damaging to life in the spore world and for the tech to be abandoned for the sake of that life in a good star fleet decision. This was a better explanation that would make more sense instead of apparently only people on Discovery knowing it exist and there being no documentation outside of Discovery...

Anyway, THANKS for your reviews.

Re: TNG S1: The Naked Now

This is comedy gold. It's so bad it's good.

Re: TNG S1: Encounter at Farpoint

I love when this episode goes full Spaceballs. I laughed myself stupid when Riker literally watched the episode on viewscreen.

"Pain; pain...loneliness...". Lol!!!!

Re: ENT S2: Regeneration

4 out of 4 for me.

I love the homage to "The Thing".

Time paradox stuff...don't hurt your brain trying to figure it out. This was a suspenseful episode and a proper send-off for the Borg after Voyager ruined them.

Enterprise made the Borg terrifying again.

As far as I'm concerned the entire Enterprise series exists because of First Contact. The Enterprise-E travelled back in time altered the future. That's why we never heard about the Xindi before.

I wish they would come out with a Crisis in Multiple Star Treks like the DC Comics stuff did to clear up its own continuity errors.

Sybock and now Michael Burnham? This can't be the same universe.

Re: ENT S3: Harbinger

I give this episode 2.5. I wasn't bored watching it, and that's a good thing. I like that macho bullcrap.

Everybody hates Reed, but I really like Reed. I can relate to people that are flawed. He can be petty and feel threatened at times. He's not a robot!

DS9 is my favorite because the characters are flawed. Heck I like 1st and 2nd season Bashir on DS9. Call me a weirdo. There's something nice about watching people that are human! TNG was crap in the first season because everyone constantly had to show us how perfect and morally superior they were. They got Pulaski in season 2 and the show had some life shot into it.

Then they brought back Crusher. Gates is a beautiful woman and I love Crusher, but no conflict = boring. Pulaski shook things up a bit.

McCoy is my favorite character in TOS BTW. So take that you green blooded hobgoblins!

Reed RULES!!!!

Re: ENT S3: Anomaly

Bunch of Roddenberry idealists that can't deal with moral shades of grey. I prefer this Archer to the Archer of the 1st two seasons. That Archer was an incompetent boob that almost got his crew killed several times because of his naïvety.
Ask yourself this question: If you were serving aboard the Enterprise as a lower decks crewman or woman would you rather have this guy as your Captain or that 1st season dude as your Captain?
Which one do you think has a better chance of getting you home in one piece?
I like this guy. Shades of Benjamin Sisco!

Re: ENT S3: The Xindi

I'm shallow. I admit I have a Xindi reptillian brain when I say T'Pol gives me a raging case of Pon Farr.

Re: TNG S7: All Good Things...

I am among the tiny few who absolutely HATED All Good Things. I've only watched it once, when it was first aired. I've never been able to bring myself to watch it again since. Back then, I could have given you a whole laundry list of the problems I had with the episode. Since it has been so long now, I only really remember the biggest gripe I had.

Specifically, you have an anomaly that travels backwards in time. But when future Picard arrives, there's nothing there. They do their tests and leave. Hours later, Picard convinces them to return and lo-and-behold, there it is.

Wait. What? The anomaly is spawned by their testing and travels BACKWARDS in time. But when they arrived it wasn't there and when they came back AFTER... it is there?

That's the only specific plot hole I remember now, but it's a pretty large one. I remember writing off the whole episode as "Q is involved. Q does whatever he wants, whether it makes logical sense or not. The episode is fine. There are no plot holes. The apparent plot hole with the anomaly works fine because Q makes it appear where it "needs" to appear in order for Picard to react properly. All bow down to Q."

Perhaps I should try to watch it again and look for all the character interactions instead. Apparently, based on the rave reviews here, if I ignore the "science" supposedly involved, the episode is great.

Re: TNG S4: Remember Me

My father and I watched this episode together during the original run. We tuned in late and missed the opening scenes, so we watched the episode without knowing anything about Wesley's experiment.

Had we seen the show from the beginning, I don't think we would have enjoyed it nearly as much. I'm confident we would have figured out that it had something to do with Wesley's experiment at some point along the way.

Instead, we spent nearly the entire episode throwing ideas back and forth, trying to guess what was going on. It was glorious. We were wrong time and time again, but it was immense fun bouncing ideas off each other while watching this highly entertaining episode.

I still have fond memories of this episode. I think it is probably my favorite episode from any of the series, all because we missed the first 5 minutes. :)

Re: TNG S7: Lower Decks

Lavelle = Riker. Sito = Worf. Ogawa = Crusher. Taurik = LaForge. and Ben = Guinan.

Well put, I agree.

Re: Confessions of a Closet Trekkie

I met my wife in 2004; I walked into her condo and saw the VHS tapes of Sailor Moon Anime and Manga on her shelves and knew she was a keeper because Star Trek is mellow compared to her Anime Geekness. :)

Re: ENT S4: The Augments

This episode also did one of the things that bugged me about Enterprise (as is blatantly obvious in the screwed up finale). The writers throw in a reference to Insurrection; as if the writers are screaming, “The Briar Patch has always been here, it was not a bad plot device for a lame movie”.

Thank you for doing the reviews as I check out Enterprise on HULU. I am watching episodes I missed due to my local channel moving the shows time every month; half a decade ago. :)
