Really the only part I liked was the ECH pulling rank on Kim.
I hated that part of the episode as I did with a lot of later Doctor scenes. I really hope it's not Robert Picardo's acting because I really like him, but it just seems like they went out of their way to make him a pompous asshole. His scenes with Kim are just that. His "An Emergency Command Hologram outranks an Ensign" was cringeworthy. I was hoping Kim would just say "Computer, deactivate EMH" and end the whole bit.
Only to have the computer reply, "Insufficient authorization."

Re: Workforce

^^ Easily. I can see it being useful in a situation, but the writers decided to use the opportunity to give the Doctor some horrible lines and make him into this jerk. He doesn't work with Kim, he basically talks down to him for the episode and then at the end, they decide "Oh, I guess we're equals."

It worked as a daydream, maybe even in practical applications, but the writers failed heavily in the execution.

Re: Workforce

He was already a jerk. He just learned that you get more lovin' by not being a jerk when you're a doctor. He has yet to learn this about command.

I think he drops bedside manner 101 from his playlist because he is now a photonplated dictator with delusions of godhood.

The jerkholeness of his personality comes from the real Dr. Zimmerman basing the template on himself. It wasn't enough that it looked like him, he wanted it to act like him too. And apparently they were such insufferable dicks they got relegated to mining operations.

Oy vey. I'd better go out and get some coffee if it's going to be one of those days today.

Edit: Back with coffee. I'm not going to tell you it's chilled Starbucks Frappucino Mocha, or you'll just start in again.

Of course not. I'd make them shut up while my soaps are on.
