Re: TNG S5: The Perfect Mate

I've been doing a rewatch of TNG thanks to Netflix. Most of the episodes blend into each other, and the ones with Ferengi always go from amusing to annoying quickly.

This episode has many other flaws: the clumsy use of the Ferengi in moving the plot; the unsecured cargo bay, and (biggest of all for me) the fact that nobody thought to simply have a female chaperone for Kamala.

All that said, Famke Janssen was outstanding. Her performance hit exactly the right notes each time - from her open and confident demeanor on her emergence to her gregariousness in Ten Forward, she was utterly believable in what could have been a very hokey role. Stewart's Picard - as we all have come to expect - was just as effective in his task of showing the gradual erosion of his carefully constructed walls.

The sidebar discussion about free will was also compelling considering the relatively small amount of screen time devoted to it.

3 of 4 stars seems fair to me, on the strength of the two leads alone.

Thanks for this site!

Re: VOY S3: Rise

Partly a rip off of "Flight Of The Phoenix", people stranded after a plane crash in the desert convert the larger plane into a smaller jury-rigged plane on the instructions of a nerdy guy. It turns out all the aviation knowledge the nerdy guy has is from making models. To spite this and the gratuitous shuttle craft carnage, (which is a great point about Voyager)I still kind of thought this was one of the better episodes.
