Re: Does It Get Better???

I think your criteria for what makes a good episode are significantly different from mine. Which is cool...at least someone's appreciating the episodes I find...unsavory.

Even Jake Lloyd wants to dunk little Anikan's head in a dirty toilet and flush.

I didn't mind the kid until he had the "helping" speech.

If you mean "filler" in the sense that it was a disposable episodic adventure, wouldn't at least seventy-five percent of the series falls into that category?

Sorry for the confusion, the key adjective was "meaningless", not "filler". I'm totally cool with filler episodes, and actually its probably more like 95% of the series is filler. Very few episodes when you think about it actually advanced the plot. Some of my favorite episodes are filler.

However, as I said: key word was meaningless. This was an episode about a planet that wrestles. They introduce a wrestler. Our hero is forced to wrestle. Then the episode is over. At least TOS "Arena" had a point: Kirk and the Gorn were fighting as proxy for the lives of their crew. Here, it was meaningless entertainment, just like WWE.

You Voyager folks are seriously the best! Why can't my fellow TNG and DS9 peeps be as fun and awesome?

And speaking of awesome Voyager folks, whatever happened to You_Will_Fail? I miss her lively comments and encouragement to keep watching the show.

I think we may have unwittingly played with You_Will_Fail until he/she died.

Re: Does It Get Better???

If you had been here last week, you might have been part of the "ugly girls try harder" argument.
