Re: YOU! The Contrarian

I love Fascination. It's just like all those ridiculous, embarrassing episodes like Let He Who is Without Sin..., except that somehow it's really entertaining!

There are a few classic episodes that I think are a bit overrated, most notably The Maquis and Homefront/Paradise Lost, although I don't dislike them.

I do not like the Visitor. Do not.

I didn't mind Facination either- I like humour. I got a kick out of that one where Quark dresses up like a woman too. I liked Little Green Men, it's hilarious!

I'd have to check the popular list, where ever it's gone...

I'm w/you on hardtime and whispers-yuck!

Some of the MU eps aren't well received-but I like em. I guess its the slutty Kira that does it, sans the garish headband.

Re: YOU! The Contrarian

I don't like The Visitor as much as most people here, even though I like the Sisko/Jake relationship a lot. I find it a bit overwrought.


And I had quite a few problems with The Final Chapter.

Re: YOU! The Contrarian

I did not care for "Far Beyond the Stars" (too heavy-handed) and "Children of Time" ("No I won't sacrifice my life for yours, but I will help you with your farming chores." Hummmm.... where is this going to end up I wonder?)

I liked "Take Me Out to the Holosuite" (I don't see what's so wrong with it) and "The Magnificent Ferengi" (one of my top ten actually).

Didn't realise those were generally unpopular episodes.

Re: YOU! The Contrarian

I sometimes feel alienated in here for seemingly being the only one person who doesn't find "Duet" enthralling. People rank it as one of the best episodes and I wouldn't even put it in a top 50. The guest star is great, but I hate the rest of the episode. I perk up during his scenes, but the rest of the episode bores the hell out of me.

I don't understand why a lot of people seem to be sour on "The Emperor's New Cloak". I think it's no worse than any of the mirror episodes and maybe even a little better than some of them.

I didn't think "Take Me Out to the Holosuite" was unpopular, but if it is, I'm part of a minority of its fans, because it's one of my top 5 favourite episodes. It may be a light, inconsequential episode, but I find it way more engaging than the "In the Pale Moonlight", which I think is good, but way overrated.

I like 'Take Me Out to the Holosuite' too! I also like 'Chrysalis' which sometimes doesn't seem to have a lot of love.

I like it in part because of the mystery- because of the touching guilt of the Cardassian, because it shows that Kira can go beyond racism, even though the race brutalized her people, and see the good in people, acknowledge their ability to change. With a "terrorist" like Kira- that's important.

I did not like Badda-bing Badda-bang. Mostly, I thought it was a terrible waste of time.

i watched 'the abandoned' today. had seen it before, but thankfully forgotten what it was about, and hope i'll manage again. is it a highly regarded episode around here? i also hope to learn one day that the borg assimilated the whole jem'hadar bunch.

Re: YOU! The Contrarian

I really liked The Muse. I found Ambassador Troi to be a sympathetic character in that episode. (I usually find her annoying.) Fascination is one of my guilty pleasures. It's so stupid that it's funny.

I didn't like Far Beyond the Stars. I found the whole Benny Russell thing to be overdone, even though I usually like storylines with the Prophets. I also didn't much care for Hard Time.

Re: YOU! The Contrarian

I didn't think "If Wishes Were Horses" was as bad as its made out to be. How anyone can think it's worse than "The Passenger" is beyond me.

"Little Green Men" I could take or leave. Goofy Ferengi episodes could be funny, but for me not one has entertainment value evn remotely close to the really powerful, dramatic shows like "In The Pale Moonlight" or "Duet" or "In Purgatory's Shadow".

"Fascination" I kinda liked just because it gets to a point where it's sooo over-the-top, ridiculously bad, that you just kinda have to sit back and laugh. The episode's a big joke, not to be taken seriously by any means, and in that context, I can laugh at it. Unlike season 3's other agreed-upon failure, "Meridian", which made me wanna puke. I wanted to cry at the end of "Chimera", the polar opposite to "Meridian" IMO when it comes to relationship episodes.

Based on this thread, it seems that Fascination is actually a rather liked episode, so I guess I might be a contrarian for absolutely despising it?
