Re: TOS S2: I, Mudd

A plain zero from me. Even worse than the first Mudd episode, it fails on every level, I don't want to summarise because it would take hours and would be pointless. It's just plain bullsh*t and nonsense from start to finish. On top of that, it's so tedious, it just won't end. It feels longer than any Star Trek feature film.

This is rock bottom, one of the very worst moments in Star Trek history, and that's saying something.

Re: DS9 S5: Blaze of Glory

This review is just wrong, as always :P Its issues have been discussed to great lengths here already. I could have forgiven it for putting two people who don't like each other on a shuttle AGAIN... if it were good characters and a good combination. Sadly, Eddington is the most unsympathetic and plain annoying character in the entire series, it could only go wrong.

He's just a huge pain in the arse with his constant over-the top sarcastic self-complacency. Dukat gets away with it because he has the personality and nonchalance to back it up, Eddington just tries much too hard and makes it only worse with every word he says.

It's good that he starts talking a few non-rubbish sentences over the stretch of the episode, but this episode's greatest achievement, eventually, is that Eddington dies.

Re: DS9 S3: Fascination

"Yeah, Keiko was always a bad idea that should have been nipped in the bud, but for the rest of it, you guys literally missed the point of this episode. It's a spoof of Midsummer Night's Dream. Magic dust and mischievous fairies, in this case the gorgeous stupendous magnificent Majel, mistaken identities and everyone falling for the most improbable person, I was in 5 minutes into the episode. It surprises me how often Star Trek fans of all series loathe certain episodes because they can't identify the allusions these episodes make to other elements of western English speaking culture. It is one of the great strengths of the whole Star Trek that it does this."

An allusion alone doesn't make a worthwhile episode though. You could argue that a female Ferengi taking off her fake ears was an allusion to Vincent van Gogh, but that doesn't make the episode any more pleasant or significant.

There's a lot of humour in Star Trek, in the case of DS9 mostly with Odo and Quark, or even better, Garak. I couldn't find anything funny in this episode. Just a "wtf was this for?" episode, like TNG's "Justice". A waste of time without any saving grace whatsoever.

Re: DS9 S1: The Storyteller

I don't see how this episode can get three stars, to me it's Season 1's definite low point. Both plots are stupid nonsense, one a poorly executed story about people who tell a cloud with a rocket launcher to go away by saying what a silly prophet tells them to, the other some awful teenagers-playing-around non-story.

I hate to admit it as a TNG and Picard fan, but this is the one episode in DS9's first season that unpleasantly reminded me of TNG's numerous bullshit episodes.
