Thirty Days was a definitely a very good episode if not exactly great. I loved the idea of the planet, but I felt Janeway was definitely acting like a bit of a dick.
Counterpoint definitely was a "great" episode for me although I'm not sure how you found it hilarious, I don't think it was even meant to be funny.... I thought almost everything about it was perfect except for Mulgrew's acting which was overly-posed and vacant at times. I loved the ending scene though where Janeway has won but has also really lost.
There are some really great episodes up ahead to look forward to - oh and one atrociously awful one that I don't think ANYONE likes.
