Re: DS9 S7: It's Only a Paper Moon

I was fully expecting a 4-star review for this episode. It's an absolute gem, a delight to watch and extremely moving. The creation of Vic Fontaine is a stroke of genius. He's a sort of male Vera Lynn for the troops and is played superbly by James Darren. Wow.

Re: DS9 S6: Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night

My first comment on this site although I've read all the reviews...

This episode is very well acted, but is let down by the rush handling and simplicity of the time travel element as well as the rather predictable about-turn of Kira at the last moment. One minute she's adamant her mother must die and then she happens to see the video sent to her mother from her husband. It's completely contrived and improbably convenient. It's like a dog-hater seeing a postcard of a cute pug licking a baby's face and re-writing their will to give all their money to Battersea Dog's Home. Surely she's developed beyond such confusion after 5 1/2 years. It's a retrograde piece for the character and rather insulting. Well-acted but simply doesn't stand up to scrutiny. 3 stars is kind.
