The Essential Voyager episodes

Hi there, my girlfriend and I are watching - in my case rewatching - Voyager, although we don't want to watch every episode, seeing as we both have busy lives. This being the first time in about five years I've watched the show, I can't for the life of me remember which are the best episodes of each season, bar obvious ones like Year of Hell, of course! We've already seen Caretaker, what are the rest of the good episodes out of each season? Cheers!

Re: The Essential Voyager episodes

False Profits? Really? I thought that was one of the worst VOY episodes I've seen.

How I would change your list:

Season 1 - add Prime Factors, State Of Flux (for the beginning of the Seska storyline)
Season 2 - add Lifesigns and Tuvix (a highly controversial and therefore interesting episode), maybe Resistance for Joel Gray's performance
Season 3 - get rid of False Profits, maybe add Real Life
Season 4 - definitely add Living Witness and Hope and Fear; get rid of Concerning Flight and The Killing Game (although it is the conclusion of the Hirogen storyline - but a really lame one)
Season 5 - add Night, Drone, Counterpoint, Latent Image and 11:59; I can take or leave Bliss, it's nothing special
Season 6 and 7 - I haven't seen all of them yet

I like the list even better with those improvements. ^^^ (Except for 11:59. I didn't love that one.)

Except he forgot "Deadlock".

How could you forget the awesomeness that is "Deadlock"?

..or "Critical Care" from season 7, Treks look into the health care system.

You also need "Flesh & Blood", it plays a very important part in the EMH's quest for equality and segues right into "Author, Author".

"False Profits" is definitely one of Voyager's weakest episodes, but I think it has some good humor in it at times. When Neelix says "I am the Holy Pilgrim," I couldn't help but laugh.

Season One - "Prime Factors" and "State of Flux" - I can see your point, but the less Kazon, the better.

Season Two - "Lifesigns" = Okay add this one, a good episode. "Tuvix" = pass, not as good as billed, Tuvix is just creepy, and the resolution is far too rushed. "Resistance" = It never really left a mark on me.

Season Three - "Real Life" = I found it more annoying than anything.

Season Four - "Living Witness" = It's as close to the Mirror Universe as Voyager gets, so it's good for that, but not much else. "Hope and Fear" = I thought it rather lackluster for a season finale. "Concerning Flight" = One of my favorites, great humor and John Rhys-Davies is amazing. "The Killing Game" = necessary, too awesome to skip.

Season Five - "Night" = Like "Hope and Fear," lackluster. "Drone" = Okay, add this one, it's pretty good. "Counterpoint" = Okay, add this one; good to see Janeway have some romance. "Latent Image" = again, never left an impression on me. "11:59" = pass, it doesn't even feel like Star Trek to me.

That's what you think! I wonder if you'll facepalm when you see the actual conclusion like I did.

No offence Devil Eyes but I think it pretty sad that when we veiw the Nazi subjection of other human beings as "WW2 movie cliches".

Sorry, it just strikes me as a little insensitive.

How did you manage to equate disliking WW2 movie cliches with being insensitive to the horrors of Nazi crimes?

I've seen a fair share of straw man arguments, but this one takes the cake.

I guess kinda the same way you took what I said as some type of "straw man arguement", when I wasn't trying to make one.

So it seems we both misinterpreted what the other was trying to say.
