Re: Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Contrary to popular belief, there's no such thing as the Star Wars Christmas Special. It was the Star Wars Holiday Special, and the holiday in reference was Thanksgiving.

Re: TNG S7: Sub Rosa

Should be "bury the lede"

I know it seems wrong, but if you doubt me look it up yourself!

Re: ENT S3: Chosen Realm

OK, I'm a pedant, but I'm willing to suspend disbelief to watch engaging TV. But my suspension of disbelief was disrupted every time T'Pol or D'jamat used the word data in the singular (e.g. "this data proves"). Data is the plural of datum, and writers should not mangle the language carelessly. Geesh. I couldn't take any more and had to switch off.

Re: DS9 S7: Treachery, Faith, and the Great River

"By Grabthar's Hammer..."

But in all seriousnes, the ending had two major plot holes I'm not surprised the characters themselves missed. First, either the Jem'Hadar weren't jamming communications this time, and the good Weyoun could've tried to contact them; or they were simply ignoring all communications from the runabout, which is never stated on-screen. Second, "evil" Weyoun had no way of checking to see if his rogue clone had actually killed himself; he simply assumed based on what he saw. If that's the case, the protagonist Weyoun certainly could've faked it. The Vorta are described as master manipulators, after all.

Oh well, it was still a good episode overall, despite the rushed ending. Still would've liked to see a Jem'Hadar or Vorta regular as a protagonist. I've read the relaunch novels, but to be frank, the Iliana Ghemor bit turned me off from the series. Besides, Taran'atar didn't seem as interesting and three dimensional as Goran'Agar or Weyoun.

Re: BSG S4: The Ties That Bind

I don't know if i agree that tory changed that much. She was pretty amoral to begin with - remember, she is the one who rigged the election. She somehow got promoted as a political fixer when billy died, and while we don't have her backstory she sure didn't seem to be there because she was an idealist. It's a small leap that she could kill when her own life was threatened, as it was here.
