Re: TOS S3: Spock's Brain

I actually have always really liked this episode. Already when I first saw this, long before internet, or reading any bad reviews for this I ranked it among my favorites.

I was impressed with the unusual story for being so different and shocking, the acting (Kelley) and the memorable alien woman and her planet, the little we get to see of it. And beside Scotty collapse scene LOL, this episode did not make me laugh as I generally only watch SciFi show for the entertainment and the story, not to debate is it technically possible to do this or that with the brain.. or the tricorder or the warp engine.

I also found many Voyager episodes exciting due to the risk factor i.e that they were willing to risk it and try things like "Twisted", "Tuvix" or "Threshold". While by no easy means realistic or believable these shows do offer something others don't!

I have seen Spock's Brain well over 50 times over the decades and it was very good episode from the start. When the first VHS releases came out it was among my most re-watched eps. It should be watched disregarding all the "is this possible" speculation and leave it at that.

Spock's Brain: 4 out of 4.

Re: VOY S2: Threshold

2 out of 4
and if it would have been a 2-hour show with no canon mistakes, a real chance of 4 of 4!!

Re: VOY S2: Threshold

They should have made this a 2-parter as it just was too short ending to cure it all in 5 minutes!

Abandoning their offspring, not using the technology / giving it more study again later to help getting home, the "infinite" velocity and warp 10 canon issues clearly more or less destroyed the story, but I was impressed with the acting and I generally only watch SciFi show for the entertainment and the story, not to debate is it technically possible to do this or that.

Re: DS9 S6: Profit and Lace

This episode was quite horrible to watch, yes, but the idea about sexual harassment and women's rights was not that bad: As Quark learns what it is to be a woman, he thinks twice before asking for sexual-related services from his employees again.

Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

What about the time portal? It is stated in the beginning that it is unstable, yet in the end it seems to work in and out very fluently with the little Molly there unaged, unharmed. O'Brien sees it his right to destroy it with maximum-setting phaser? Just for the benefit of his family, as he originally plans. Ancient and valuable site of incredible technology - a stable time portal.
Doesn't the portal deserve some study - or preservation at least?

And if your kid is 8, has lived all her life in the comfort of her parents and then 10 years passes in solitude, while traumatic definitely yes, you don't forget all the talking and the faces of your parents. If it would have been Yoshi who goes through the portal and returns at 18, it would have made sense.

Interesting idea, but very badly written. Among the worst of episodes.
