Re: TNG S4: The Best of Both Worlds, Part II

Riker wouldn’t have been so ‘chubby’ if Picard hadn’t always been yelling at him to make it dough.

Re: TNG S3: Captain's Holiday

What does that have to do with the price of tea in the Beta Quadrant?

Jammer does a pretty good job critiquing the episodes, I seldom feel the need to add much more. And I certainly never feel the need to bloviate at how most episodes don’t live up to my oh-so-exacting standards.

That WAS what Garth Simmons was kind of referring to, or so I inferred.

But I do appreciate your “At least they’re...” comment. You’re right, of course. I’m a complete chowderhead and openly admit it.

Re: TNG S3: Transfigurations

“This is one of those special episodes that make this series so wonderful and prophetic. I'm not surprised most people don't see that. One day when people will become more spiritual this episode will become more appreciated.”

Oooo... Matsu, you are so wise. I am not worthy.

I shall immediately give up gluten and only drink non-GMO free-range water! Please, accept my contrition and offer me your guidance, oh Matsu!!

The other difference, NoPoet, is that the rest of the world watches the American stuff.

Yeah, baby! hahaha

Oh I kid, mostly. My GF thinks Downton Abbey is fantastic.

Re: TNG S3: Hollow Pursuits

@Sintek (June 7, 2013): Your comment is so preposterous that I think I see why you like Star Trek. You need a comfy and safe world where disagreements are only of the most minor significance. Everyone in Jammer’s site that has read your comment is now dumber for it. May Q have mercy on your soul.

@Corey (July 9, 2013): Because this is the 2000’s, we have social media now. One no longer has to even consider any other views. Friend the ones that agree, block the ones that don’t. Voila! Your worldview has 24/7 validation and woe be to the fools that don’t step in line.

@SkepticalMI (February 6, 2014): Agreed. It’s spooky the ease with which people will read a blurb on their website of agreeing choice, and with little to no research just adopt what they’ve been spoon-fed as the gospel truth. Worse is how they’ll regurgitate it with dripping vitriol in a crusade to bolster their ideology. As if it’s like rooting for a sports team or something. It’s mind-boggling that the advent of such amazing technology and access to information has served only to make many more ignorant.

@213karaokejoe (June 15, 2014 x 2): Without a doubt, the floppy hat is chuckle-worthy. So is your comment, “As a school teacher, I’m trained to see that angle.” Alright, settle down Agent 213... 007 is still on the job, we’ll call you if needed. ;-)

@Dave (February 22, 2016): That was definitely pretty blunt. A tad bit over-the-top, but very nicely blunt. Consider decaf.

@RandomThoughts (September 10, 2016): Most definitely. ANY time there’s an emergency I chuckle at the fact that instead of just beaming there, they “hurriedly” go through the corridors, take turbo-lifts, stop and make small-talk... I get that the beaming special effects can probably be costly, but at least make them RUN. haha... oh well, what are ya gonna do. It’s Star Trek, and even with all its quirks I love it.

@Sean (November 10, 2017): Agreed. Barclay kinda makes the episode as he also seems like a huge magnifying glass on my own real (or perceived) shortcomings.

@CodyB (Not that far up there, scroll up ya lazy chowderheads!): Same here! Some of my most favorite episodes involve the holodecks. But you know how the *true* Star Trek fans can get about them... so it’s best not to poke them and make them venture forth from their enlightened hovels. ;-)

@Roger W Norris (Right above): Any relation to Chuck? OK... that was lame. Lemme try again. Um... your idea to cut off the matter stream seems perfectly logical. Nicely done, and I’m proud to take over the most recent comment on this episode from you, sir. *salute*

Re: TNG S3: Captain's Holiday

Hello, Garth Simmons! I know it’s going on 4.5 years since your comments, but I feel compelled to reply.

I hope as you assumedly continued to watch Star Trek you never turned into the people that your comments back then were referring to. haha

You see... it’s kind of a ‘thing’ in ST fandom to become hyper-critical, stodgy, self-aggrandizing and overall just kind of boorish. You can see it on any fansite you go to, there’s just a general vibe amongst many of the commenters that reeks of thinking perhaps their excrement does not have an odor as unsavory as the neophytes they are forced to endure.

Their comments are gassy, overly long, unbelievably critical, and usually full of big words to emphasize the validity of their litany list of complaints. One could easily think they do not watch ST for pleasure, but rather to demonstrate their ability to dissect others’ work.

Is this a great episode? Nah... it’s not. Is it fun and a bit goofy? Yeah. Does it deserve the ridiculous amounts of blathering critique from some commenters above? hahaha... of course it doesn’t.

A lot of ST fans should repeat to themselves it’s just a show, they should really just relax. ;-)

Re: TNG S3: Allegiance

Now now, RandomThoughts... don’t get all verklempt. I read your comments on the previous episode. I read ALL the comments except those of the 2 or 3 people that permeate Jammers’ site and leave comments 50x longer than the actual review.

Trust me, we ALL know of whom I refer to. haha... sad part is, they often have worthwhile viewpoints it’s just... just... OMG they bloviate soooo much! I think perhaps they just like to watch themselves type. ;-)

But my little perseveration (this is the kind of word the 2 or 3 like to use haha) aside, I think you should honestly scroll all the way up and hit “Like” on Dave Nielsen’s comment.

Hey, wait a sec!!! This isn’t Facebook!!!!!

Re: TNG S3: Allegiance

Hello way up there at the top, Dave Nielsen! Do not think that your comment on August 8, 2011 went unnoticed.

One of the things that cracks me up about Jammers’ comment sections is that eons ago, a person will comment... and then the next comment is like 2 years later and rarely even acknowledges the first one.

I just wanted you to know you’re not forgotten, sir, and to be quite frank... your comment was better than xaaos’. haha

Re: TNG S3: The Offspring

@ Cody B...

I’m sorry that you are also OCD to the degree where captions are turned on if a line of dialogue is hard to understand. lol

Drives me crazy to not know if the line is important or not.

Since TNG is getting on in years, it only happens occasionally. But with a lot of modern TV episodes and movies it seems to be an increasingly common occurrence. As if the microphone is at the end of the hall covered in a towel and the person speaking has a mouth full of gravel.

I back the show/movie up several times and no matter what, I just can’t make it out. Finally I back it up and turn on captioning and I’m like, “Oh you have GOT to be kidding me!!!” haha

Re: TNG S3: Yesterday's Enterprise

Dear Jovet:

Your comment WAY up there on June 12, 2015 is lovely. It encapsulates all that is wrong with nitpicking ST eps to the Nth degree for every little science-fiction detail... while pointing out that some nitpicking over bad writing is perfectly normal.

A seriously well-written and thoughtful comment, and much like Enterprise C I have gone into the future to give you kudos.

Since I *am* 3 years in your future, pay heed: Facebook stock. Buy LOTS of it.

Re: TNG S3: A Matter of Perspective

Reading ALL these comments has convinced me of 2 things:

1) I really shoulda just had that lobotomy

2) The mental gymnastics some people willingly go through to defend idiotic premises assures me that my not doing #1 means I must be constantly forced to acknowledge the fact that there is little to no hope for the future of the human race.

Star Trek’s world-view ain’t the future at this rate... people fighting over which way to get out of a paper bag seems FAR more likely. haha

But then again, I tend towards the sardonic. YMMV.

Re: TNG S3: The Hunted

So many of these comments are hilarious. People all excited to point out an inconsistency or a bad plot-point.

Woo hoo! You did it! haha

I mean, don’t get me wrong... I can be as anal-retentive OCD as the best of you. I guess I just know when it’s worth it to be. ;-)

An enjoyable episode. Interesting, some action, some thought-provoking elements. Certainly far better than watching paint....... er, most of your all’s comments dry. haha

Re: TNG S3: The Vengeance Factor

I totally get what you’re saying, RT. Just kind of a “day in the life of the Enterprise” type episode.

Nicely stated, I really hadn’t thought of it that way.

Moving on, however... I just adore digitaurus up there with the fake outrage and not-so-subtle innuendo at how much more ‘enlightened’ they are. haha

Oh, InterwebZ... you never cease to amuse. ;-)

Re: TNG S3: The Price

Indeed, Nesendrea. Well said.

Objecting to ill-treatment once upon a time was usually held off until said ill-treatment verifiably happened.

But not so much with the social media mouth-breathers nowadays... the goal is to cut off everything ‘at the pass’ in a desire to appear the most socially aware. Likes and shares are the new opiate of the chowderheaded masses.

The problem is... always cutting things off at the pass often means one can’t see where it was headed.

“...pick up their smartphones, and start writing angry Facebook posts.”

You left out take 42 selfies a day and post pics of every meal they have and every place they go. When you feel like the star of your own little reality show, it’s par for the course to have to get outraged sometimes.

It’s all so stupid and pointless it almost makes me wish for a Zombie Apocalypse. haha

Re: TNG S3: The Enemy

Wowsers! Whole lotta nerdiness going on in this episode’s comments. haha

Fun episode. Intriguing. Little. Yellow. Different.

I laughed, I cried... it was the feel-good episode of the year!

I forget exactly which scene it was, but at one point I could see an Engineering panel in the background and upon closer inspection, I could clearly see that the matter-antimatter intermix ratio was WAY out of whack.

I’m just glad the ship didn’t blow up.

Re: TNG S3: Booby Trap

To begin, I’d first like to offer my condolences to the powers that be at TNG.

Like you, I also read SteveRage’s scathing comment from January 8, 2017.

I know I don’t speak only for myself when I opine that his reluctance to give no more than 2 stars was both cruel and vindictive, frankly.

Given the normally over-the-top logical behavior of the crew in every other episode, his “...emotional maturity of a 12 yr old” seems designed to only add insult to injury.

I only hope you can find the strength to go on after such an onslaught; verily I am not sure I could muster it.

*Dramatic sigh*

Re: TNG S3: Who Watches the Watchers

OMG... trying to read through so many bloviating blowhards almost makes me wish there was a vengeful God just so y’all would be punished.

Seriously... as if any of you thought you were going to *actually* change anyone else’s mind. Of course you didn’t, you just wanted to type out large swaths of “Look how smart I am” diatribes in typical Internet fashion.

Ok Ok... perhaps I’m being too harsh. As I re-read the 42 billion words typed on this simple TNG episode review, I now see that a full and comprehensive analysis of human religion and its effects actually was achieved. *rolls eyes*
