Re: VOY S7: Friendship One

I have to say I really liked this episode ... at least the main idea of it.

Seven is forgetting the existence of Icheb.
That bothered me the most ... it's just such a stupid mistake, how can this survive the writing, filming and cutting process ???

Killing Carey was a good idea .... don't get me wrong - the way they did it was stupid as hell - but losing someone of the crew with a bit of character ... not a a complete nobody is good for the story!
I have to say I am a Joss Whedon fan! ;-)

They did that pretty well with Natasha Yar on TNG!

Of course here, it was made way to obvious!!
After a few seconds you know ... Carey is getting way to much of attention ... he is not coming back!

And than stupidity comes along .... and ruins it completely!
He gets a shot in the heart - nobody needs that anymore, ask Picard - is beamed directly to the Doc and the only thing he can do is holding his tricorder above him and call the captain FIVE SECONDS later to pronounce him dead ???
It would have been so easy to fix this .... shot in the head - brain is gone - nothing you can do!
But maybe this would have been to graphic or hard to display correctly - so they went once more the lacy way!

OK, we had this before ... Nelix once liked a girl from an telepathic planet and she was stabbed by a grandma one time with a knife ... a few seconds later she was dead - no way to bring her back.

I guess you need to have the private health insurance of the main cast!
If you have that you can die several times, be brain-dead, mutate into Sea-Monkeys, have your DNA changed or be combined with another crew-member - the Doc will bring you back like nothing had ever happened!
OK, if you are an alien you only get a holo-lung and have to wait for other aliens to heal you or a Borg to bring you back after the Doc has already put you in a body-bag.

Re: VOY S6: Muse

I left out some episodes while watching the entire series on DVD:

If I watch a Sy-Fy Series I want to see new ideas, new technologies, new lifeforms, new places ....
What I don't want to see is the VOY-Cast playing WW2 scenes, or being part of a black/white movie, or becoming citizens of an old fake Irish town and I don't want to see any more aliens being the exact copy of humans from a certain era in world history!!!

That was my problem with this episode as well:
Torres having the hundredths or so shuttle-crash of the Voyager Bridge officers - playing theater with the local Greeks or Romans or what so ever.
I don't need that - so I passed it.

Then I reed this high rating here and thought I give it a second chance ... and you won't believe it but it was ... BORING !!! ;-)

Sorry ... maybe it's somehow interesting when you know the background of the writer ... but besides that it was meaningless for me!

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

I am watching the whole series on DVD now and I am almost finished.
I had the same feelings for this episode as "BlinD".
Why do you turn species 8472 - in my eyes the best invention of VOY - into a bunch of TeleTubbies???

It's so bizarre .....
What a waste!
Maybe they were to expensive to visualize ... so they couldn't use them anymore in there "normal" shape - but turning them into this .... a shame!
