Ezri Dax is Best Dax.
I'm with you on "Take Me Out To the Holosuite," though. Maybe would have worked before the Dominion War, but not during. Also, baseball has no place.
Ironically, and I say that as a person who is not a sports fan by any measure, I liked "Take Me Out to the Holsuite". It provided a nice respite from the war stories. And it's the only time in my life I ever enjoyed watching a baseball game.
And I agree with you about Ezri. I liked her alot. I don't know if I liked her as much as I did Jadzia, but as long as we couldn't have Jadzia, Erzi was a perfectly acceptable replacement.
