Re: TNG S3: Transfigurations

Wow. Funny how we have all had similar experiences with this episode. I caught the beginning of this in a rerun tonight and thought to myself, "I remember this episode, it has the wrinkled face guy in that hideous white jumpsuit." Then, I realized, I remembered nothing else from this episode. Who was he? I had no clue. What happens? No idea. Well, I decided to watch it, so I popped in my blu ray set which I got recently and compared shots airing on TV to my blu ray. As a quick aside, I must say, the blu ray picture is amazing. The colors are vibrant, and the surface textures are so detailed. With that said, the texture details of the, um, "mid regions" of the alien's white jump suit seemed enhanced, too...definitely distracting, but I digress.

This episode must be the epitome of unmemorable, as I watched the whole thing and only had vague recollections of what I was seeing, not knowing how it would end until it finally did. I really did enjoy the brief scenes with Worf and Geordi talking about romancing women, and Worf's line "I've been tutoring him" is not one I will forget again. It was awesome.

All in all, I suppose this episode had enough intrigue to keep me watching, and had my interest piqued, but primarily because I knew I HAD seen it but I couldn't remember it. It kept my interest throughout, but in the end it was definitely an average episode. I did find myself asking if the writers were somehow thinking about the general population's response to the AIDS virus in the 1980s. It was something unknown, and many people were scared of it, like this species was to their new and unknown condition. Probably not, as I haven't seen that connection mentioned anywhere else. And the more I think about it, it seems less likely rather than more. Just a passing thought I had.
