Re: VOY S6: Muse

Cappo - I agree with your point verbatim... if the audience doesn't feel that they would lose something if one of the characters is suddenly gone, then why would they care what happens at all? This is one of the reasons I loved Firefly so much, in that the series established their characters so well right out of the gate, it was a thoroughly captivating show.

I really liked this episode, as it felt more like a good TNG outing than standard Voyager fare... even better knowing what drove it into existence. Unfortunately there was one directorial flaw that sent my nitpicker into overdrive and actually distracted me WAY more than it should have... particularly in the first few scenes, the Flyer was supposedly lying at a sharp angle... this obviously would lend to the perception that it was a particularly nasty crash this time... but, why, oh WHY did they have all of those candles burning if they were just going to tilt the camera to bring this across? All of the flames being perpendicular to the deck and not to the "real" horizon completely destroyed the illusion, and my sub-conscious immediately started playing the theme to the 1960's Batman series in my head.

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2 (April Fools Version)

Actually, I just wanted to respond to an above statement made regarding no explanation with the whole "clean Viper" that Kara came back in... I honestly took that as a tip of the hat to the original 1978 episode "War of the Gods", wherein a race who turns out to be the Angels found in the doctrine of Christianity:

- turns everything their ship consumes spic-and-span white, and restores all equipment and personnel to a "born again" state. (that ship's noise still bothers me to this day, for those who have seen the ep.)

- programs the coordinates to Earth in the original casts' brains.
