Re: VOY S2: The 37's

This episode is more brain-dead than Vedek Bareil in "Life Support" (rim shot!). I've long believed that any premise, no matter how ridiculous, can be the stuff off good drama or comedy, but for that to work, the premise has to be executed with basic(s?) competence.

This episode is not executed with basic competence. The scenes do not move. The tone falters between hokeyness and seriousness. The dialogue is flat and uninspiring. And the ending is predictable in a muted, banal fashion that should come as a surprise to no one: No one decides to leave Voyager and stay on Amelia's planet. Perhaps that was for the best; life on that planet appeared to be intolerably boring anyway.

This was the wrong episode to have left-over and open season 2 with (not that Twisted or Elogium would have been the "right" episodes) - a Ford Gran Bore-ino floating in space (yes, that is a lame joke - you get from it an idea of what you're in for when you watch the episode).
