Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

Just finished rewatching the entire series for the first time since it originally aired over 20 years ago. The last ten hours of this season stand up so well. I’ve always loved DS9, but I think this ending is even better than I remembered. The best Star Trek has to offer, and I would say at or near the top of science fiction TV in general (with BSG being the one possible exception). These last 9 episodes are probably the first serialized television I ever watched and, after the rewatch, I’d put it up there with other great early serialized dramas like The Sopranos and The Wire. This isn’t as refined or sophisticated as those HBO greats, and is certainly more cheesy, but in terms of compelling serialized drama it’s as good as anything. DS9 is my favorite series of Trek. It revolutionized the franchise and the genre and is an early part of the revolution of television in general. It deserves even more respect than it already gets.

Re: DS9 S7: Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang

It’s so weird to be rewatching this season so many years later and to see so many filler episodes. I’ve always loved DS9 and the reason why I preferred it to TNG back when it was airing was because I loved how it implemented season long story arcs. That’s what I’ve remembered all these years. I forgot how much filler episode crap there was that took us away from the overarching season arc. I like Vic Fontaine fine, but I’m really tiring of Vic centric episodes popping up so much at this point. Seems like he is central in every 3rd or 4th episode. This episode is fine, but enough Vic already. There’s a damn war going on for crying out loud. Get back to that story.

Re: DSC S3: The Sanctuary

Really didn't like this episode. Pure filler and the dialogue was terrible. This lovey dovey crap between Burnham and Book needs to go away. I like both characters, but I'm really getting tired of them together. And why put in the stuff about the ship lost in the nebula if you are then going to spend the rest of the episode on some nonsensical hunt for the Real Wicked Witch of the Alpha Quadrant (or whoever she was). She looked like one of those obnoxious faux-rich middle-aged women from a Bravo series. I hope she doesn't become a recurring character.
