Re: TheGodBen Revisits Deep Space Nine

Disagree big time there with that review. The Ferengi episodes are brilliant and like OTT soaps episodes (you know parodies of cruddy soaps). The humour is in how much they act like us, and how crazy/stupid they get in their pursuit of wealth and maintaining the status quo (i.e. profit for men, no clothes for females, that sort of thing).

The Jake/Benjamin b-side detracted from the story. Sure this ain't quite the best Ferengi episode, but this episode is one of the highlights of season one. I love Zek's whiny voice, it's amazing! But maybe people don't have any funny bones...
