Re: “In Conversation” or “Berman and Braga vs the world.”

There were lots of things I disliked in the early episodes, but now that I've finally been able to watch them several times-- often as much as one episode five times in a row-- I am able to see things I initially missed and have changed some of those bad first impressions. There's no element of the franchise I completely dislike, just disappointment with fumbled or missed opportunities.

And I suppose B&B are no different than any other executive in any other business. It's like a politician blaming everyone else for his failure to get enough votes.

Impressionist David Frye frequently lampooned Nixon during the Watergate crisis: "As President, I take full responsibility... but not the blame. Let me explain that. People who are to blame, lose their jobs. Those who are responsible, do not."
