Re: DSC S2: An Obol for Charon

The scene with Stamets and Tilly singing her favourite song is probably for me one of the major highlights of this series. I don't know why, but I just watched it over and over. Moments like this make a lot of the other mediocrity and treknobabble of the show worth it.

Re: ORV S2: Sanctuary

It's enough to drive you, crazy if you let it...

So much fun. God I love this show. It makes me feel young again.

Re: TNG S6: Lessons

I rewatched this the other day on Netflix (I hadn't watched it in HD, it's always nice to rewatch a TNG ep in HD that you haven't seen it before). I love this episode for many reasons. First Wendy Hughes: as an Aussie I was a fan of hers and so I was thrilled to see her on TNG. She didn't change her accent at all, so it was a thrill to have an Australian, a classy Australian (not some red neck yobbo) on my favourite show. The chemistry between her and Patrick Stewart was palpable. The show was well written but you can't write chemistry, between another two actors this could have been a dreadful bore but thankfully it wasn't.

I guess the part that sticks with me is when Picard explains the significance of his Flute, something which is obviously difficult for him to talk about. I love the scene very much. I love "The Inner Light" and although I wouldn't technically call this a sequel, it's still nice to get it referenced in a major way which is relevant to the plot.

I can't help but think that if TNG were made these days it would be a very different show with complex story arcs that require lots of focus and attention. Essentially with most episodes (or two parters) are pretty much self contained and apart from some storylines (eg Worf's discommendation, Picard being assimilated etc) there aren't that many story arcs. I wonder if they ever remade TNG (and it's probably inevitable, recasting the characters) how different it might be.

Re: ORV S2: A Happy Refrain

I'm afraid I have to disagree. Sometimes you just have to suspend belief and enjoy yourself. This is up there with one of my favourite hours of TV of all time (yes, really). I simply loved it, and the final Raining Scene was just perfect in my opinion, even if completely ridiculous. I guess what I'm more annoyed about is that the two parter "Identity" undid what this episode achieved for Isaac and Claire, which makes you wonder what was he really thinking during this episode. But, by itself, I loved this.

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

Just finished watching seasons 6 and 7 of Voyager for the first time. Love the series one of my all time faves.
Didn’t like this ending though, very unsatusfying. Chakotay/Seven romance is awful! Total cop-out script, we don’t even get to see the actual return home which was supposed to be plot payoff of the whole series.
That said, I still rank the series very high, loved all the characters and I will miss them. Until the next binge!

Re: VOY S7: Natural Law

I kind of liked this episode had a bit of an Avatar vibe.
Seven looks awesome outdoors in natural light with her hair down. Just sayin.

Re: VOY S6: Fury

I liked the original Kes character so looked forward to this episode but, yeah, pretty awful. However I thought the episode now carries a lot of tragic irony given the real-life struggles of Jennifer Lien. I wonder if any Trek people have reached out to her and tried to help her?

Re: TNG S5: The Next Phase

God I love this episode. Yes, sure you can pick plenty of technical holes in it, but all the character elements are so great that I think you can forgive them. I remember whooping for joy when Data finally worked it out and Geordi and Ro appeared at their own funeral the first time I watched it.

If I was trying to get someone into TNG I might show them this, because it stands on it's own so well and is so thoroughly enjoyable.

Re: TNG S7: Eye of the Beholder

I didn't mind this episode. I think my major annoyance with it, like some others have mentioned, is Calloway's reaction to her boyfriend killing himself. She reacts more like she got told she'd lost her holodeck privileges for a few weeks than a tragic personal event. Given that suicide is obviously a rarer event in the Trek Universe than it is in real life, I'm actually surprised that generally it wasn't written to be more of a shock to just about everyone on board, and that they wouldn't straight away be looking for some kind of left of centre explanation rather than "he actually wanted to kill himself rather than live in the idyllic Federation, I can't believe that".

But again like others, the best bit was seeing inside the Nacelle. I feel sorry for anyone posted there regularly, I reckon after the initial "this is so cool!" it would probably get rather dull. Plus in an attack, the Nacelles are usually the first things to get hit, I can't see many surviving one of the Nacelle explosions we've seen at various points in the series.

Re: TNG S7: Parallels

This is probably one of my favourite episodes of the series, and definitely one of my favourite Worf episodes. I don't think we've ever had any other Worf episode where Worf was the central character and it wasn't some Klingon political drama. Here we have Worf with a totally sci-fi premise which is totally out there. I just loved it. All the little touches were fantastic. I still feel so horrible seeing dead Geordi naked on the biobed... why take his clothes of so that anyone can just come into sickbay and take a look?

Re: DS9 S4: The Visitor

Although I love this episode and agree it is one of the best of DS9, it's since been surpassed by other singular episodes of other shows as what I would consider "The best hour of Television ever". For me they are "The Constant", from "Lost", and "Ozymandias" from "Breaking Bad". The latter was quite probably one of the singular most heart stopping Television outings I've ever had. I didn't sleep that night after watching it.

I rewatch "The Visitor" quite often. Probably the single elements that drag it down for me, are the elderly makeup on Dax and Bashir. Whilst their performances were fantastic, it was quite obvious they were wearing makeup. Maybe Westmore had a day off?

Re: TNG S3: The Best of Both Worlds, Part I

Much of TNG for me at least was a unique experience, in that I was spoiled on just about the entire series. Every episode was new and I had virtually no clue what was going to happen next. The first time I saw BOBW Part 1 I had no idea the Borg were even returning, and then to have to suffer from that cliffhanger... brilliant, brilliant Television.

The only TV moment that even comes close for me is the Doctor Who episode "Blink" (which I was also unspoiled on). My only complaint with that, is that you can only ever watch it for the first time once. If you could pay money to forget having watched something like that and then watch it for the first time again, would be truly magical.

Re: TNG S3: Menage a Troi

Was a fairly annoying ep, but as a kid who was the same age as Wil Wheaton (and consequently Wesley Crusher), nothing thrilled me more than seeing Wesley in a full uniform. Thats the moment I take away from this episode. Though I still can't help but imagine how some of the junior officers elsewhere on the ship felt when the Doctors son gets to fly the ship while they probably have to scrub conduits somewhere :)
