That would probably work for a 2-parter, after the "last time on The Addams Family..." recap.

It's Reading Rainbow compared to what happened on Hannibal this year.

Psh, you love Voyager more than any two other fans.

I'm waiting for the Zoe Saldana reprise of Nimbus III. I'm looking forward to what the underwear shriekers will have to say about that.

As much as I rip into Voyager, I do enjoy the show. I just wish it was better!

I nitpick sometimes, and I think the show could have done much more with its premise, but I've enjoyed the show and have been watching loads of episodes back to back on Netflix lately. I'd say I'm a fan.

Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?

Which character do you have a tattoo of?

You can easily figure out how much of a fan someone is, by who they have a tattoo of, where the tattoo is and how large the tattoo is.

I knew Q was only in that bathtub because he was cosplaying Chaktoay in his little Q'ey heart.

What person A defines as something being trashed, person B defines as critisim. It is possible to enjoy something yet feel that it was lacking in parts.
But that's not how it is with VOY. When anyone "criticizes" it all they do is point out the bad and never mention the good. That's not critique, it's just trashing something.

And no, "It should've been serialized" or "These characters should've been more!" are not critiques, they're just more mudslinging.
Well, you can point a finger at me for saying Chakotay could've and should've been a hell of a lot more than Janeway's lapdog. And akoochimoya, my indigenous ass, and all that.

Doesn't mean I don't see Voyager's good points.

All it means is that I really loathe what they did to one character.
That was partially because Beltran was a b*tch on set and squandered any chances he was given to do anything so they stopped caring.

Also, it was because they didn't do a good enough job making him that dissimilar from Janeway in the first place and were afraid of the underlying sexism of the premise (A weak woman captain who has to compromise with terrorists).

Re: Better if they had allowed main cast to die?

It's weird how very little any Maquis issues got brought up. You would think that it was the difference between two mainstream political parties, not one group labeled terrorists by another group.

I'm grateful though that we didn't have to put up with Chakotay being all repentant of his Maquis past. That would have been nauseating.

Maybe it was because they created a stereotypical Indian based on some New Age impression of what Indians are...

But, wait... Did you just criticize Voyager? Are you a basher?

Indianaians doesn't have anything to do with this, but it's a weird word to get your mouth all the way around without practice.
