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*

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Look, everyone! A couple of commenters made political references using the Pakleds! Ha! Ha!

That’s so edgy and clever. I bet they’re really smart.

I want to be smart.

Re: TNG S2: Pen Pals

Wow... there are some really long-winded blowhards that like to see themselves type. haha

I ain’t naming any names, but all of you with an iota of observational skills know the culprits. ;-)

Speaking of that... I should end this comment before I become one myself.

For a caveman, you’re really not all that boorish.

Rather affable, actually.

Re: TNG S2: The Outrageous Okona

That scene with the comic ‘impersonating’ Jerry Lewis.

My God... that scene.

It was one of the worst things I have ever seen on TV, and I’ve seen every episode of Small Wonder.

Re: TNG S1: Conspiracy

Riker, after the Enterprise arrives at Earth and they talk to the 3 admirals on the viewscreen: “Well that seemed normal.” (I’m paraphrasing).

UH... Really, Riker, that came off as normal to you?

Come on... who directed this episode, Curly, Moe, or Larry!? The 3 admirals were so wooden and awkward acting they shoulda just had signs around their necks saying “Call the Orkin man!”

S1 sucks, we all know that. And I guess I can appreciate what they were trying to go for here.

I guess I can. I dunno. Stupid S1.

Re: TNG S1: Symbiosis

My favorite part is at the end of the anti-drug scene between Wesley and Tasha, when Tasha says, “And in conclusion, always remember to floss.”

Wesley looks her dead in the eye and replies, “We always floss. We’re Starfleet.”

Powerful stuff. Giving me shivers even now.

Re: TNG S1: Heart of Glory

So cute to watch Starfleet “security” in action. Lieutenant Moe, escort the prisoners to the brig! Ensigns Larry and Curly, accompany him!

I can only assume it was a simpler viewing audience back in the 80’s and 90’s? The security people jumping into the open and firing one time and then waiting for the bad guys to shoot them just seems goofy now. Is phaser fire a round-robin affair in the future?

Man, I’d push the hell out of the phaser button if I were a Starfleet security dude. “Yes, Captain, I neutralized the threat. I also regret to inform you I destroyed Shuttle Bay 7, 8, and half of deck 11.”

Re: TNG S1: Too Short a Season

Haha... look at Matt up there trying to take one of the dopier episodes of S1 TNG and turn it into some kind of political statement. That’s more misguided than even this episode’s premise, which is quite an accomplishment.

Oh well, I’m sure at the time it musta seemed profound or something. lol

Mooooving on, yes... this episode was largely a snooze fest and seemed to scream at every commercial break, “Why are we doing this?!?” It was plodding, dull, uninspired, and yet... mostly harmless.

Not the worst speed bump in TNG’s road to excellence by a long shot.

Re: TNG S1: Angel One

A lot of grandiose blathering and holier-than-thou diatribes by a motley cast of self-appointed critical thinkers.

The episode wasn’t that great, either.

Re: TNG S1: The Big Goodbye

As I type this, I inhabit a world where a cup of coffee has to have “Warning this is hot” printed on the side and commercials where CGI cars do crazy stuff have to have “Do not attempt.”

Yet in Star Trek’s world, a crew is set off in a ship with holodecks and nobody really has a clue just what they can and cannot do.

Sadly, I think I prefer Trek’s world. Granted it could allow for some accidents and mishaps, but this world just caters to the lowest common denominator of stupid and fear of lawsuits.

Yeah... I’d definitely take my chances with an occasional holodeck adventure over a constant barrage of mouth-breathing mediocrity. haha

Re: TNG S1: Haven

For almost 3 years, Matt L. up there was the only comment on this review.

After 18 months or so checking to see if anyone else had responded, he probably got fed up. haha

Re: TNG S1: Where No One Has Gone Before

Finally! A half-way decent S1 episode!

Brought crashing down by portraying a distant part of the Universe as the Magic Kingdom.

Re: TNG S1: The Last Outpost

Every time they showed the Ferengi down on the planet I heard Yakety Sax playing in my head.

The level of incompetence in their portrayal is so epic it boggles the mind. A lot of people are involved in getting a show from idea to script to filmed.... Nobody at any point yelled out, “What the Hell are we doing here!?!” haha

Why was the background of the Ferengi ship white in the viewscreen? No budget left to construct a set? Why was the Ferengi’s head 9 feet tall and filled the entire viewscreen? Why were the Ferengi wearing fur?? haha

Oy vey... it is an ABSOLUTE MIRACLE that TNG ever got a season 2.

Re: TNG S1: Encounter at Farpoint

Oh good grief... I’m writing this during the saucer re-connecting scene, so I’ve got oodles of time.

Perhaps it’s just aging not being kind, but this is so so so bad. haha... and yet it’s my beloved TNG!! Injust finished a run-through of Voyager, and I’ve been dreading re-watching TNG because of S1.

The 2 stations up front by the viewscreen are just sort of out there with like 20 feet of open space around them and they’re rickety. Watching them shake when anybody used them was a nice allegory for the show itself trying to find its feet.

Worf points a phaser at the viewscreen. hahaha... oh boy, yeah, we’re not off to a good start here. I’m glad they at least cut the scene later where they teach him potty training.

Troi. Yeesh. Soap opera stars of the time watched this and cringed at her performance.

And despite it all... I still kinda like it. I just need to get through S1, I think I can... I think I can...

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

2nd run through of Voyager complete, and awwwww... I’m always sad to see them go.

I agree with most of the rest of you that the show bungled its true potential, but there’s still something about the characters that makes me miss them when they’re gone.

Of course, I get that way over DS9 and TNG, too. Maybe I’m just a sap. haha

Speaking of which... *grumble*... it’s finally time to re-watch TNG. I’ve delayed this as long as I can, please keep me in your thoughts as I slog through the DREADFUL season 1.

I must stay strong...

Re: VOY S7: Homestead

Well said, Mr. Bunkum!

It was kind of touching watching Neelix leave, and it gave me a melancholic vibe as well.

All these chowderheads blathering on and on about “Neelix was annoying, or Neelix was jealous, or Neelix wasn’t on par with the great literary characters of fiction” have a point.

But they’re still chowderheads because they go ON AND ON ABOUT IT, even at his touching and well-done departure episode. I mean seriously, we get it... would someone please give them a tasty Hot Pocket with a $10 gift card for Candy Crush Saga already to shut them up?!?

And for all the “Why are there Talaxians way out here” crowd... give me a break!!! Every time Voyager turns, they show it leaning over to do so (Watch the opening credits). That’s an aerodynamic maneuver for a craft with wings, certainly not useful in space where there’s no air! Seriously, this show could be ripped apart by a 5 year old if they wanted to.

Fortunately, they don’t want to. They want to be entertained. You could learn a lot from a 5 year old. haha

Re: VOY S7: Author, Author

Too funny so many people saying, “I can’t believe the Doctor wouldn’t know the crew would be upset being portrayed like that!”

Voyager was ahead of its time in this regard, because most of you are probably exactly like him. Every time you log into your favorite social media site of choice, and scream and yell to a pre-selected echo chamber about how [Insert Democrats or Republicans] and their supporters are evil and the scum of the earth, or all those who disagree with your opinion on [Insert Cause Of The Day] are uncaring low lifes, you behave *exactly* like the Doctor does in this episode.

Self-aggrandizing egomaniacal simps. Probably never devoted even 5 minutes to truly trying to see your “enemy”s point of view, or at the least even try to empathize with why they may think/be the way they are.

Nope... it’s a me me me world and woe be to anyone who thinks or believes differently. Pretty much the Doctor’s attitude when literally ALL the crew expressed their displeasure with his versions of them.

As of my typing this, the echo-chambers du jour are Facebook and Twitter, but you future readers substitute whatever’s popular in your time. Hopefully by your time people have learned some objective reasoning skills. haha
