Re: A little help, please

Are we talking about the vegetable or Reg Barclay?

Broccoli is wonderful when properly prepared, and is my favorite vegetable. Of course some folks don't like it, but that means there's more for me!

Re: A little help, please

We're talking about Albert R. Broccoli whose name fascinated me throughout my teen years at the end of James Bond movies. Why was his last name Broccoli? What had it been like in school being named Broccoli? Did he himself eat broccoli?

I've never managed to sit all the way through any James Bond movie, so I have no idea what character you're referring to.

He's the producer, he produced like a gazillion of the things. His name appears in the credits and is probably the main thing I remember about any of the movies.

Re: A little help, please

I'd suggest going from the beginning. Take the good with the bad. I just finished the show myself. Looking back on it all, a lot of the episodes I was critical of in the earlier seasons are much better than I gave them credit for originally. I was extremely harsh on that first season, but I think that has a lot to do with me jumping into VOY immediately after finishing DS9 (there were other reasons too....). It took awhile for me to adapt to the episodic style of VOY, but once I became used to the format I mostly enjoyed it. I personally thought the last two seasons were the strongest (although that view isn't held by many other fans), but there's still plenty to enjoy in the earlier seasons. So, once again, I'd recommend you watch all of it and formulate your own opinions. You might find you really like certain episodes that aren't so popular with the mainstream crowd.

But who is the mainstream crowd?

When I talk to Trek fans out in.. the street.. (okay, at cons and bookstores) I am always gobsmacked at how they love all these characters and episodes that are held in very dim view around here. I guess they haven't been slow poisoned by years of internet shrieking.

Well that just reinforces what I said. We fans will never agree, which is why the creator of this thread should watch them all and decide for himself what he likes.

I loved Barge of the Dead, although I don't think that episode would make many other fan's top 10 lists...

Didn't particularly like Barge/B'Elanna or Seven first time VOY on...now love both of them. Guess tastes change, mature

Re: A little help, please

I agree with most of AllStarEntprise's episode list.

Bride of Chaotica never did it for me though.

I would add:

-The 37s (S2)
-False Profits (S3)
-Innocence (S2)
-Worst Case Scenario (S3)
-Mortal Coil (S4)
-The Q and the Grey (S3)
-Q2 (S7)

I'm a Q fan~

The J/C in me wants to recommend Coda and Resolutions even though they aren't the best episodes.

Re: A little help, please

Thanks! Where is it from, did you do it yourself?

And lurok yes tastes change, mine get broader in most everything. Practically everything I disliked on first runs of Trek I like just fine now (Vic Fontaine I'm looking at you).
