This is why you never announce you're squatting, you just do it. The second you give notice, they come running back. Just do it, and it's all yours without them having to salve their pride!

Re: Does It Get Better???

But I like them to come running back when I mention thread takeovers. It makes me feel like a chess master.

Re: Does It Get Better???

One Small Step: Quite a moving episode, I must say! Wonderfully paced, I loved hearing/seeing the journey of the astronaut, and was deeply moved by his tragic demise.
9/10

The Voyager Conspiracy: Quite an interesting episode. For awhile I actually believed a conspiracy was afloat. Very good.
8/10

Pathfinder: TNG CROSSOVER!!! Not only that, but we got to see one of my favorite guests from TNG, Barclay, along with Troi. This was one of the most memorable episodes of the series' run. As always, Barclay found a way to gain my sympathy, and I rooted for him the entire episode! Loved the ending when they contacted Voyager and Barclay redeemed himself, really wonderful!
10/10

Fair Faven: Creative premise, some nice Janeway/Sullivan romance, pretty solid all around!
8/10

Blink of An Eye: Fell asleep halfway through...need to rewatch it at some point...

Virtuoso: Absurd premise, something I could see them doing on Trek cartoon for 8 year olds......but it had some good laughs, and some nice entertainment value.
6/10

Memorial: What a vile episode! The big reveal at the end was just terrible. How could these aliens make people relive such awful memories? I'd have been psychologically scarred had I been in Tom, Harry, Chakotay, or Neelix's shoes. There decision to not let it shut down was very misguided. Just dreadful...
In it's defense there were some very moving scenes, and lots of intense emotion. The action scenes were well done, and the actors gave it their all.
5/10

Haha, well I will keep that in mind for the future. These Voyager fans are like a bunch of rabid children. Gotta be careful what I say and do around them.....

You don't have to listen to them.

Peer pressure isn't real.

Just give up.

Go watch something enjoyable like Arrested Development or Call me Fitz.

Oh, I didn't pick this show up again because you folks suggested it....uh uh, nope....I do things on my own terms. It had been awhile, and being in a transition period between TNG seasons 2 and 3 on blu ray I needed something to watch. Thought I'd give VOY another shot. It's been fairly good lately, I must say!

That's surprising to hear. A VOY episode with lovely romance and charm....why wouldn't that go over well with fans?...

Re: Does It Get Better???

I'll let the haters speak to that themselves.

For me getting to see what Janeway programmed a hololover to be like was worth every bit of cow kissing (oops, that's for the sequel).

Re: Does It Get Better???

If not for a lack of continuity, if her affair with Mike was mentioned every episode or every other episode, well... How long until someone in the crew grew a set and staged an intervention?

Supposedly regular sexual releases are healthy, but that depends on you definition of regular and your definition of sexual, and for a hologram to step in and do some of the heavy lifting, well that's only just bloody sensible... But "feelings"(if feeling exist, I'm still looking for proof that we've evolved beyond fight or flight.) for a lightbulb, that my friends is just buying a ticket to crazy town.

I go after Janeway about a lot of things, but her affair with a hologram isn't one of them. Not much different than using toys to get yourself off for a modern day comparison. Just be sure to lock those holodeck doors.

Re: Does It Get Better???

It's okay to love your toy, but you shouldn't loooooooooove your toy.

I can't wait to see the review of "Spirit Folk".

Re: Does It Get Better???

The privacy of your bedroom is fine, but when you take your toy out to Denny's for your birthday, that's another thing entirely.

Re: Does It Get Better???

What if your toy comes with its own Easy Bake Dennys so you can enjoy going out to eat with your toy in the privacy of your own quarters?

Feelings for holograms is obviously a pitfall many skate around.. I don't think it's as weird as feelings for celebrities in some ways. Lust, infatuation.. it's all hormones and chemicals that trigger each other and I think if you're making the the perfect man and he's making you feel really good you're likely to have a cascade effect that rationality has little to say about. Like in real life.

Second worst episode of the series. Only surpassed by its sequel.

And you fell asleep during Blink of an Eye???? My FAVORITE episode???? Re-watch, pronto.
