Re: “In Conversation” or “Berman and Braga vs the world.”
Yes, I think Berman was just burned out and didn't realize it. Maybe he was aiming for 20 years with the franchise. I noted in one my episode reviews that he does deserve credit for keeping the franchise running for as long as he did. But as a producer/creator/writer, he was too close to the material to recognize when the stories with his own name on them were crap that never should have been produced.
