Re: Poll: 7x08 Cold War review and discussion

Meh, pretty underwhelming, all in all. It had some good moments, especially the introduction of the Ice Warrior but everything else (e.g. the conflict between the political commissar/first officer (I'm not sure what he was actually supposed to be) and the captain, the crazy professor) just felt a bit contrived and by-the-numbers without really paying off. The dialogue felt off, too, not like people would talk in that situation.

I did have to chuckle at all those Soviet soldiers running around with what would have been Makarov pistols drawn. Those things were notoriously imprecise - even if they were fastened they wouldn't always hit the same spot. It's only fitting that no one actually fired any of them.
