Re: DS9 Versus: A viewing experient

Not to sound like an arrogant Niner or anything, but you should have kept the DS9 episode in the competition because, uhh... it's definitely better than the VOY and B5 opponents.

Heh, TKO has its problems, but it wipes the floor with The Fight!

Mutai!
Into the sands of blood steps The Fight, bravest of its series!

And now, the Sho-rin: TKO!

Let the Mutai begin.

Fight with courage...and honour...

I'm not comparing them based on episode merits tho', but rather the gimmick. That said...

Unfortunately, SoG didn't air during DS9's run. There is one TNG episode that *might* work tho'.

Blue Collar Whining Week
DS9 - Bar Association (S4)
TNG - Journey's End (S7)
VOY - Worst Case Scenario (S3)
B5 - By Any Means Necessary (S1)

Okay, so Native Americans (First Nations as they're known here in Canuckland) aren't exactly the same thing, but it's a similar premise, of Big Corporate Evil coming in and tramplin' on the rights of the little guy. But, they folded! Huh? What kind of stand-for-rights was that? Damn TNG and all its compromises.

And the stand-for-rights didn't even happen on VOY. Instead of seeing Chakotay having balls and standing up to the Evil Janeway Corporation, it's all a simulation that even the real Chakotay disbelieves could happen. Man, what a whipped cur he is. Maybe he's secretly on Janeway's payroll or fears Tuvok comin' in breakin' some knee caps, eh?

Plus, it isn't a good sign that in both cases here, it's the Native Americans being defeated. That's sooo un-PC, man.

Okay, so it's Rom's union versus the Dock Workers. Well, the Dock Workers could bust heads if they really wanted to, and a lot of them really want to bust heads. On the other hand, Rom's union has much nicer lookin' busts!

Right, right. Focus. Uh, neither 'worker's plight' plot is terribly interesting, but I'm giving the nod to DS9 in this case. Brunt made for a better villain than Mr. Slick (or whatever his name was), and at least Sisko didn't get dragged into the whole fiasco (well, aside from dealing with Worf-O'Brien-Bashir's entanglement).

Whoa, Rom wins? What a lucky guy.

Winner
DS9

Hey, any other Gimmick Versus to suggest?

Re: DS9 Versus: A viewing experient

Nice.

Maybe an inquisition kind of mash-up? DS9's, well, "Inquisition", B5's "Comes the Inquisitor", and... whatever else.

I don't know, man, it's late and I'm tired.

I seem to recall you never watched Meridian.

With all the wrestling/boxing allegories in this thread, I decided to do a special Bonus Round of three episodes that actually has boxing/fighting in it!

DS9 - For The Uniform (S5)
VOY - The Fight (S5)
B5 - TKO (S1)
Does Tsunkatse count? That's probably better than the three episodes above and it's based around fighting. Plus it's got The Rock, Jeffrey Combs & J.G. Hertzler in it.

'Fraid not. Must have aired during DS9's run.

Most ill-advised use of Joel Brooks?

Re: DS9 Versus: A viewing experient

I can probably come up with a few things, but not this week as I've got an insane crunch of assignments due.

By all means, tho', anyone else can have a go at these.
