You have "Tsunkatse" on the list, but not "Timeless" or "Drone" or "Counterpoint"?

Don't get me wrong, I'm one of the few round these parts who thinks "Tsunkatse" is a decent episode, but seriously...

If you haven't watched all the way through, just do it. It's not like you have to finish them this week or anything.
This was after counterpoint that i put this list together.. If timeless is after that or drone, i skipped it for a reason

The filler episodes dont drive the story and dont add any new perspectives to the characters or the plot.. Thats always been voyagers biggest flaw..
Actually, episodes like "Drone" do add new perspectives to the characters.

Personally I think Voyager had a lot of episodes that provided new perspectives to the characters. The character development was one of my favorite things about the show. I never clicked with the characters from the other shows

Even if you're only looking at season 5 and on there are a lot of great character building episodes
Drone
Extreme Risk
Infinite Regress
30 days
Latent Image
Gravity
Dark Frontier
The Disease
Juggernaut
Someone to Watch Over Me
Those are just off the top of my head

Re: Voyager Essentials Collection

OP, you clearly have no grasp of which of Voyager's episodes are filler and which aren't (although you could argue all are..)

what's funny is that you could argue that ALL of the episodes are filler. Voyager is about being stranded in the Delta Quadrant, so you really only need to see Caretaker (they get stranded) and Endgame (they get home)

God, how can anyone look at Drone as "filler"?

"You are hurting me."

"You will adapt."

Re: Voyager Essentials Collection

Actually I take that back. I did did see drone
(he called himself, One i believe)

I am rememberying the TNG episode where Data and Geordi disconnected the borg Hue from the collective. It was remenicsint.. But seriously if i had to compare the two, id go with the TNG episode..

(yeah yeah, i know they are different story lines)

And i guess by filler, I mean "if you never saw the epsiode, you'd not be missing something critical to the series"

ie:
Kes Leaving
Tom and B'llana getting married
Paris being demoted
Janeway's hairstyle changes LOL

Re: Voyager Essentials Collection

by filler, doesnt just mean an episode that doesnt add any depth to the characters or story.. It can also mean a boring episode...

Take the TNG episode Darmok.. This episode was done so well
and was so epic that even tho nothing "changed" in the storyline, you'd be nuts not to have watched it at least 3 or 4 times.

I honestly cant say that about most of the voyager episodes

Re: Voyager Essentials Collection

Actually I have seen timeless, drone and counterpoint (i realize ive seen MOST of the season 5 eps).

Tsunkatse was a guilty pleasure episode.. I honestly only watched it because of the rock.

(the way he tossed 7 of 9 around was kinda hot... in a WWF BDSM kinda way)

I cant mate.. believe me I stuck it out for 5 seasons (probably missed all of 5 in S5) and I just cant take it anymore.. Its not holding my interest.

Force yourself to watch all the episodes. Hate VOY like the rest of us when you are done!

Seriously, if this is your first time watching the show you should see all of it. I would never suggest anyone skip anything during their first time watching a show. Watch the good and the bad, making up your own mind about them. You can skip episodes if you ever rewatch.

Your previous response was out of scope mate. You really think i need a snarky retort? If you cant be productive, you're wasting both our time.

If you're going through for your first time watch them all. It's not like there's a time limit on it, they'll always be there. If you're rewatching, watch what you like. You don't need someone else to make a list for you.
Thanks for wasting a whole post on these words of wisdom
You ask for thoughts then get snippy when you don't like the answer you get? Next time don't ask then.
